  • Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:

    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 UnitedCaucasianCollege Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

    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 MARTHA BURKE?

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

    I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are d ifferent, 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 Probability.

    I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, 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 countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.

    I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry *** if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

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

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

    I don't hate the rich I don't pity the poor

    I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

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

    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 you serve me French fries!

    I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not 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
    And if you don' t like my point of view, tough...

    I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

    I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up and BE QUIET!!!
    Somehow, I don't think it was Andy Rooney that said this - but it still rings true, whatever the source is.

    Yeah, I don't think it was him. I watch 60 minutes every week, and this doesn't ring a bell. Not to mention, it isn't really in his style of speech.

      I have seen that same diatribe credited to Robin Williams, George Carlin and even Ted Nugent! (Even so, much of it makes sense.)

        Andy Rooney didn't say it. If you Google 'Andy Rooney hoax', you'll see many topics, including this one:

        http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl-andyrooney.htm

        It appears that even CBS has a FAQ reply about this subject.

        Rooney is quite comfortable in the former (Dan) 'Rather Biased' news network.

        Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                Funny thing on the link. After the quote that was labeled a hoax (Even Ted was not the author according to them) the site stated this:

                "This self-righteous, mean-spirited rant was not written by Andy Rooney - nor by George Carlin, Ted Nugent or any of the other celebrities to whom it has been attributed on the Internet. Originally posted in 2000 by a regular contributor on a conservative discussion forum, it has circulated via email ever since under a variety of titles and bylines."

                What kind of BS is that? It is so funny how liberals seem to tend to automatically react to COMMON SENSE as if it is hateful or evil.

                  I must be self righteous and mean-spirited...I agree with every point.

                    I don't care who said it! I agree with it completely.

                        Yeah, I like it, too.
                        Snopes has a slightly different version of it, but says it wasn't Rooney or George Carlin, Ted Nugent, or Rush Limbaugh. From their Carlin page, you can get to a pretty good one by Denis Leary.

                        And while we're at it: If a lot of us reading this have to take a urine test to have our jobs, how about at least an occasional random whiz quiz for people on welfare, before they can get a check?

                          Who cares who said it? It's true. Is that going to offend some people? Yes. Do I personally care? No.

You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.
