Andy Rooney

Hey all, a friend of mine sent me this in an e-mail, thought I'd share with ya'll.

Andy Rooney said on 60 minutes a few weeks back: (for those of you that
don't know Andy Rooney, he is a 82 year old US TV commentator)

I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big campfires.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some
governmental stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to

addicts for squirting out babies.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can
kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you
from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there
are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is
an opinion.

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except
numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are
things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black
Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like
the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment
Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens. Jesse Jackson

be knocking down your door.

I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are

weird, or tick me off.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of
the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of

I know what sex is, and there are not varying degrees of it. If I received
sex from one of my subordinates in my office, it wouldn't be a private
matter or my personal business. I would be "FIRED" immediately!

I believe that if you are selling me a milk shake, a pack of cigarettes, a
newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact,
if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the

you were born in to come over and disrespect ours. I think the police
should have every right to shoot your sorry self if you threaten them

they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop"
in English, see the above lines.

I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation recount
votes when needed. I know what the definition of lying is.

I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are
qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans

tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or
any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives

wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over
here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor. I know pro wrestling is

but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching


I believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more
dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude..

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and

to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system
that's better, and put your name on the building.

Ask your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a
parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when
necessary, and say "NO!"
"I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't
pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that
new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as

serve me french fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and

a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be

"African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around
saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great,
great, great grandfather was from Europe.

I am proud to be from America and nowhere else.

Re: Andy Rooney

I recieved this last year sometime. I agree with it 100%, even if it wasn't by Mr. Rooney.

Re: Andy Rooney

I too have received this in an email. It sounds like Andy Rooney in style but not quite what I think he would say. I do agree with it though.

Re: Andy Rooney

It's not Andy Rooney. The guy is pretty left leaning. He doesn't state it much, but he's not a supporter of several of the things in that email.

I've also received it with claims that someone else wrote it.

Re: Andy Rooney

Although I'm an Andy rooney fan, I don't think that was him, I had thought is was George Carlin, but I don't think its him either. There have been different varations of this floating around for a while, and I get a kick out of it every time...LOL [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. Check this out, its an older post, kinda the same. I guess I'm a bad American too

Re: Andy Rooney

<font face="Trebuchet MS">I've seen this or a variation of this attributed to everybody from George Carlin to Ted Nugent, and quite a few others...

None have actually claimed to have said it to my knowledge and the info I've seen, however, I believe Nugent stated that he agrees with it... [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Andy Rooney
