    Bill Cosby is tired

    From an email I got:

    "I'm 76 and I'm Tired"

    I'm 76. Except for a 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 "honor"; 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 madrassa 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 be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making

    themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

    Yes, I'm **** 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.

    Praise be my Lord my Rock,

    Really?

    If you got the BOGUS email, it's time to hit DELETE!
    There's an email floating around - entitled "I'm 76 and tired" - purportedly sent by me. I did not write the email, I did not send the email, I'm not 76, and I don't subscribe to the ugly views expressed in the email. We are coming up to an important anniversary on Sunday, which is a day when we should all come together. Whoever wrote this email is not thinking about our country, or what is important. If you get the email, it's time to hit DELETE.

    You know what else I'm tired of? Millionaires who think they are entitled to paying 15% in taxes on income from investment dividends and capital gains.

    Paying less than half of what people who actually work for a living do is the ultimate entitlement.

    Ah so it wasn't from him? interesting.
    Having heard some of his views before, some of what was mentioned seemed in line with what he said.
    Is that a poke at Romney?

    I think it is good that someone with Romney's financial background is running. It will help bring attention to the utter hypocrisy and outright lies of the GOP's "don't raise taxes on job creators" talking point B.S.

    How does investment capital hidden in overseas tax shelters create middle class jobs?

    The only jobs it creates are for the politicians, lobbyists and superPACS themselves who in turn reward their benefactors with more millionaire entitlement tax breaks while distracting the people who support them (who they are actually screwing over) with dog whistle social issue politics as illustrated by that inflammatory, xenophobic, science hating screed.

    One may agree with the views but of they were NOT expressed by Bill and someone is saying they are then that is simply fraud.

    Oh, and Bill Cosby is 74. That should have been a dead giveaway.

    The real give away was the lack of any reference to Jello™ Pudding Pops.
