THIS IS TRUE ... CHECK THE LINK BELOW..
This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America, Canada and the United Kingdom, Denmark, France, Germany and Italy....plus the countries down under as well. Why leave anyone out???? We all need to hear what most of us believe in well written English!
I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic.
I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help.
But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the Congress-critters who passed laws to bail out Fannie and Freddie, AIG and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.
I'm tired of being told how bad America is by millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offered and gave them.
In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China, the crime and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Christian people of Iran, the freedom of speech of Venezuela and eventually it will be like Palestine.
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family's "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christians and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to. And some of this is happening not only in the middle East but on American soil.
I'm tired of being told that "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and countless fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.
I think it's very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation.
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach humanity, love and tolerance.
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore's, and if you're greener than Gore, you're green enough.
I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do to themselves. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs.
I'm tired of harassment from cool people who are treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried or used even marijuana.
I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military.... Those are the citizens we need.
I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close.
So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. Canadian, British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
I'm tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I'm tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the "Illinois Combine" of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in the cabinet.
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars in front of their houses called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in the 1950's but, we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.
I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their own lives and actions. Or people & parents who think they can buy their way out of everything.
I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or anything else for their own problems. Get off your duff & do something about it, like work, for yourself & your family.
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my grandchildren's generation or after.
I’m posting something really awesome in my blog this morning. It came in an email - shared with me by a very dear friend, June Authier.
Thank ya’, Dear!!!! Much needed. Much appreciated.
I chose to post this to my blog - rather than ‘forward’ it - because - I get tired, too. I get tired of the haphazard - laziness of others when they forward emails that contain personal email addresses to all their friends and loved ones - not to mention all the others that arrived with the email when they received it.
Wanna talk about viruses? There’s the worst kind right there. It’s has two forms - Disrespect - and - Inconsideration.
Over 75 percent of forwarded emails have been thrown out there for the sole purpose of obtaining that very information. Hell - I have forwarded emails coming to me from folks that think they’re brand new emails - when actually - I remember those coming to me back in 1997.
Ever gone fishing in the same spot to see if you can catch that particular catfish - for a third time???
Learn how to use your email account program - PROPERLY - for the sake of so many others - as well as yourself.
There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.
I encourage you to share the link to this post.
Please have a safe and happy Independence Day Celebration.
