    Thumbs up Bill Cosby - "I'm 76 and Tired."

    Just received this in my email. Didn't read the original article, just passing it on FYI.


    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.

    If this is the kind of a world you want to live in, by all means re-elect the 535 people that have made it possible.

    I really don't think this was written by Bill Cosby. Having heard and read some of Bill Cosby opinions on issues this does not seem to follow his past opinions and logic behind them.

    You DO realize that it is those "People" who put them in their seats of power who is untimately responsible for this sad mess, don't you?

    Now you ask the millons of Government Dependents to suddenly turn on the hand that feeds them?

    This is EXACTLY why neither Party is especially interested in entering the battle over entitlement spending. BOTH Parties know it will be an exercise in political suicide. EXACTLY why I don't believe there will be a "fix" put into effect until the situation becomes desperate. (Greece-like)

    Even that is going to be tricky.... while Greece can be "rescued" by more affluent Countries, who is strong enough to rescue us, should the time come? NO ONE. Nor any combination of Nations that I can think of that would be so inclined to "buy into" a US rescue effort. The STAGGERING amount of money involved would preclude rescue efforts.

    One of the problems with a long tenure at the number one slot..... you have MUCH further to fall. Remember always that it is not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop. The higher the height you fall from, the more assuredly you will die.
