What Andy Rodney said on "60 Minutes" :

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, 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 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 your sorry a_ _(bottom) 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... DON'T PASS IT ON...

Andy Rooney did not make those comments. It is an internet email hoax. FYI. Its been going around for a long time.
Go to snopes and see.

Christopher Lee said...

Well, either way, I agree 100% with them.

Jake said...

Wrestling's not fake.

It is only predetermined and choreographed.

Thanks for the Snopes tip. Chris it is not by Andy Ronney - see my f/u statement.

Want to know what I believe?

I believe not giving help to the disadvantaged is discrimatory.

I believe that guns are the most commonly used weapon for murder. I also believe guns ONLY EXIST AS IMPLIMENTS FOR KILLING. Baseball bats and cars have a reasonable use, and it's a lot more difficult to kill someone with a baseball bat or a car than it is with a gun.

I believe whoever wrote that has the right to be intolerant... just like we have the right to ostracise him for being intolerant.

I believe when 70% of people who get arrested are black, but only around 12.3% of the country's population is black, that's indicative of a problem (whether that be racial profiling or simply poverty). I also believe that when your news almost NEVER describes a "criminal on the run" as a caucasian, that IS indicative of a racist bias.

I believe that America is supposedly a melting pot culture, and if someone can't speak English, then whining about it won't do you any good. I also don't believe that your native language is indicative of disrespect.

I believe that given the police's duty is to enforce the law, using what are in the majority of cases lethal methods for subduing suspects is antithetical to their function.

I don't believe that everyone who isn't born in the USA IS eligable for a special loans program - it's only those who come from impoverished nations and wouldn't be able to live in the USA at all if they weren't given a helping hand.

I don't think it's right for Bill Gates to make that much money off an operating system that is so unsafe to use, ESPECIALLY SINCE BETTER ONES DO EXIST, and what's more ARE FREE OF CHARGE TO USE.

I believe it's really nobody's business how someone chooses to raise a child, and it's not your place to interfere with another person's methods even if you disagree.

I believe that the author of that document can go wank his ego somewhere else - the world does not exist to look pretty for him, and other people can do to themselves what they want.

I'm sick of a intolerant over-compensation to political correctness. Yes, political correctness can be stupid, but that doesn't give you an excuse to be an intolerant jackass and expect people to put up with you.

And I'm proud not to be that jackass. Thank you, and goodnight.
