You Go, Andy Rooney
 
Copied from another board I'm at

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 United Caucasian College 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, which 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 different, 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 you 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 store, 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 like this Joker theres alot of truth in what is said here. These same statements could be used over here, political correctness has gone fucking mad....

Cheers, Joker....
 
True that.....

Love it.

The only thing i would say is, and i dont think its the same over there, in the last few years our police have managed to shoot dead a number of completely innocent people. In one particular case which is still on going, witnesses descided the police as they pumped at least 7 bullets into the victims head, as, out of control thugs. Ok we all make mistakes but not a single policeman has ever been brought to book.

hrdgain81 11-25-2008 11:35 AM

^^ I didn't think your police were aloud to carry firearms matt.

that being said, the same shit happens over here, but that doesn't stop me from agreeing with what Joker posted.

mad matt 11-25-2008 12:32 PM

The normal cop on the street dosnt carry a gun but we have special units that patrol with guns, but yeah i agree with joker

hrdgain81 11-25-2008 01:42 PM

Learn something new everyday, I thought there was a blanket ban on all guns in the uk ... thanks for setting me straight matt.

mad matt 11-26-2008 03:54 AM

Yeah we have what they call Tactical Firearms Units that patrol all major cities. I live in Manchester where last year there were nearly 1000 gun related crimes. 22 people were shot dead last year in Manchester alone. In one case to black males were dragged out of a bar and executed in public veiw. So i guess the police need guns.
