    Yes I do. Career politicians are about three things,control, power and money. Nothing else matters.

    Bill didn't write this.
    X: I checked Scopes and, sure enough, they said Cosby didn't write the letter. Further checked Cosby's web site which also said he didn't write it. As I said, I didn't read the purported original, just forwarded the email from a friend. Mea culpa!!

    Thanks to Phillip Gain for posting what I was going to post. These crap emails circulate their opinion and attribute it to respectible men to lend it respecitbility. It's still crap as the Cos himself said.

    Bill Cosby "I'm 76 and Tired" Worth reading.....


    This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the UK , United States of America , Canada , Australia and New Zealand etc.

    "I'm 76 and I'm Tired"

    I'm 76. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, 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 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 "honour"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian 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.

    I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia, New Zealand, UK, America and Canada, while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach 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.

    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. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

    I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all 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.

    I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

    I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's bedeck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

    Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 76.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.
    I wonder about this one. Unless I'm mistaken, Bill is "only" 74. Since he was in the Navy, I would think he would refer to it as such, not "Nation Service." Sounds like it is written by a Brit or Canadian to me.
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    From the Navy's Manual. "“On behalf of a grateful nation and a proud
    Navy, I present this flag to you in recognition of your (relationship)’s years of honorable and
    faithful service to his/her country”."

    You left out one thing they are about. Reelection. Because without that, they lose the other three.

    Very true. Say aren't you on NavyLCDR's list of constitutional trolls?

    It's all inclusive.
