Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes

Andy Rooney said on 60 minutes a few weeks back: (for those of you that
don't know Andy Rooney, he is a 82 year old US TV
commentator)

I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big
campfires.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some
governmental stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it
away to crack addicts for squirting out babies.

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 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 ***** 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.

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 know what sex is, and there are not varying degrees of it. If I
received sex from one of my subordinates in my office, it wouldn't be
a private matter or my personal business. I would be "FIRED"
immediately!

I believe that if you are selling me a milk shake, 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 self 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 feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation
recount votes when needed. I know what the definition of lying is.

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 believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more
dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

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. Ask
your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take
a parent to stand up and SMACK that little behind 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!!
