Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”
I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, 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; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; 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 Madrasa 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 themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.
“I’m 83 and I’m tired. If you don’t agree you are part of the problem!

Soon there will be no more normal days in the year.

New year’s day, Martin Luther King’s Day, Groundhog Day, even Lincoln’s Birthday is a Day. Wonder why it isn’t just called Lincoln’s Day, it’s a little out-of-place informing us of a great man’s birthday. Just give him a day instead.

Then we have the famous and crazy valentine’s Day. This day never seizes to amuse me, with the level of intensity it brings.

There is President’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter Day which I can understand the necessity for just like Christmas Day.

The hilarious one is Tax Day. No one likes to pay taxes in the truthful sense because we all have our list of personal expenses we’d rather spend the money on. Yet, there is a day to celebrate tax.

Mother’s Day is already getting the buzz around. Mother’s do deserve a day, it sure is not an easy task carrying another human being in your body or pushing one or more out of the body. Then the hectic part of raising them non-stop for 18 years. The day is a necessity!

Memorial Day is also a good one, as it commemorates heroes past and troubled times gone.

Flag Day? Really? What about the flag that it has a day?

Father’s Day is a good day I suppose as father’s play a tough role in the society as well in raising kids and all.

Independence Day is marked by countries that other countries thought could ride on or that they were better than. I really do not know why people would leave the borders of their country to rule another country. Then now same people who started the movement are complaining about immigrants. At least immigrants are contributing to the workforce and economy of the countries they are in compared to what the immigrants were subjected to when they were visited at their homes back in the days.

It is still strange to me why American’s have their Thanksgiving Day in November. But this is a topic for another day.

Other days are Labour Day, Columbus Day, Halloween, Veteran’s Day, Christmas Eve.

The Eve to a day is a day. This is quite interesting, regarding to Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve.

This year there was actually reference to Valentine’s Eve.

Someone made a comment about why there is no Jewish Day or Black History Day as those are occasions worth remembering too as both parties were subjected to one of the toughest times man-kind has ever known.

Stay tuned, more days are yet to come 😉

Act On Your Thoughts

I strongly believe that once you have gotten inspiration about a certain matter someone else has also been inspired. It’s just about who acts on it first. Do not delay or procrastinate on things because you might miss a very crucial opportunity in life. Either career wise, relationship or self-development.

The Bill Gate’s and Steve Job’s of today were not the first or only people inspired to creating the Microsoft and Apple success of this generation.

 

I got this definition from wikipedia

“The term sexual predator is used pejoratively to describe a person seen as obtaining or trying to obtain sexual contact with another person in a metaphorically “predatory” manner. Analogous to how a predator hunts down its prey, so the sexual predator is thought to “hunt” for his or her sex partners. People who commit sex crimes, such as rape or child sexual abuse, are commonly referred to as sexual predators, particularly in tabloid media or as a power phrase by politicians.”

My friend was recently accused of being one by his house mates to his landlord. Luckily for him, his landlord knows he is gentle and morally sound unless that is how an innocent young man would have is reputation tarnished by clueless girls.

Being the only person from a different race in a house of five is enough to make him as uncomfortable as e already feels just to be informed by his landlord of the absurd accusations.

Understand a term and get your facts even close to right before tarnishing people just because they decide to either keep to themselves or are more mature than you.

Still Think Africa is A Country?

Next time anyone calls Africa a country, I give you permission to give a “you dummy” look 🙂
