Does this offend you?

Andy Rooney made this strong statement on CBS 60 minutes.  Surprised that CBS let him broadcast this, I give a big high five to Andy.

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/Canadian/British 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 or arrest 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 National Assistance, loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, corner 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/Canadian/British’? 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 fromEurope . I am proud to be fromAmerica and nowhere else 

And if you don’t like my point of view, tough… 


My solution:  You go Andy Rooney!  I agree 100%.  I am tired of calling a business and the automated speaker says press 1 for English and 2 for Espanol.  Uhhhh, I want English because I am an American.  This is America.  Espanol should not be an option.  The land of the free!  WE, as American’s, let other culture’s come here, for FREE!  They should abide by our rules!  That is, speak English and get up off your tail’s and work.  We’re tired of putting you up while you sit on your tail and receive welfare.  We work, you should too!  If you want to live here, work and take care of your own family.  We have to and you should have to too!

  1. OMG, I cannot believe CBS let him broadcast this message. No, it does not offend me. I agree with him and you, speak English. This is America!

  2. The statement makes so much sense on so many levels. Society is so ignorant to see the real truth, which brings me to believe that they really do not seek truth at all, but rather drama, deceitful things, and lies. So to this man Andy, i give you two thumbs up for being critically honest.

  3. No offense here! I am tired of it as well. Andy, you get a big high five from me!

    Eduardo, nice statement there!

  4. Unbelievable that CBS would go for this. Normally they are worried about their ratings. They know this should stir up a lot of trouble, but I am not offended. I am American and I love the statement about us saying, “we are European-American” and also the statement about us helping them run their businesses when they come here. Come on! I would love to own my own business, but my government does not help me or aid me with money!

  5. Heck no it doesn’t offend me! Great post!

  6. Go Andy and go CBS

  7. english should be an option but so should other very popular languages..its only right..
