Actauly Rooney did not say this... http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/rooney4.asp
But it's pretty good some of it i agree with.

(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 government stooge with a bad
comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts
for squirting out babies.

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 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.

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 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,

DON'T PASS IT ON!!!

Written by Ted Nugent,
the rock singer and hunter/naturalist, upon hearing that
California Senators B. Boxer and D. Feinstein denounced him for being a "gun owner" and a "Rock Star".
This was his response after telling the senators about his past contributions to children's charities and scholarship foundations, which have totaled more than
$13.7 million in the last 5 years!!

I'm a Bad American-this pretty much sums it up for me.
I like big trucks, big boats, big houses, and naturally, pretty women.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family,
not some midlevel governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to
crack addicts squirting out babies.
I don't care about appearing compassionate.
I think playing with toy guns doesn't make you a killer.
I believe ignoring your kids and giving them Prozac might.
I think I'm doing better than the homeless.
I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized.
I have the right not to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird or make me mad.
This is my life to live, and not necessarily up to others expectations.
I know what SEX is and there are not varying degrees of it.
I don't celebrate Kwanzaa, but if you want to that's fine; I just don’t feel like everyone else should have to.
I believe that if you are selling me a Dairy Queen shake, a pack of cigarettes, or hotel room you do it in English.
As a matter of fact, if you are an American citizen you should speak English.
My uncles and forefathers shouldn't have had to die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come disrespect ours, and make us bend to your will.
Get over it.
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry butt if you're running from them after they tell you to stop.
If you can't understand the word “freeze” or “stop” in English, see the previous line.
I don't use the excuse “it's for the children” as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions.
I know how to count votes and I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation do a recount when needed.
I know what the definition of lying is, and it isn't based on the word “is”-ever.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you qualify for any special loan programs,
gov't sponsored bank loans, etc., so you can open a hotel, 7-Eleven, trinket shop, or any thing else, while the indigenous peoples can't get past a high school education because they can't afford it.
I didn't take the initiative in inventing the Internet.
I thought the Taco Bell dog was funny.
I want them to bring back safe and sane fireworks.
I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang,
but that doesn't mean I want to listen to that crap from someone else's car when I'm stopped at a red light.
But I respect your right to.
I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at
Blockbuster or Jack In The Box.
I don't want to eat or drink anything with the words light, lite or fat-free on the package.
Our soldiers did not go to some foreign country and risk their lives in vain and defend our Constitution so that decades later you can tell me it's a living document ever changing and is open to interpretation.
The guys who wrote it were light years ahead of anyone today, and they meant what they said - now leave the document alone, or there's going to be trouble.
I don't hate the rich.
I help the poor.
I know wrestling is fake.
I've never owned, or was a slave, and a large percentage of our forefathers weren't wealthy enough
to own one either.
Please stop blaming me because some prior white people were idiots - and remember,
tons of white, Indian, Chinese, and other races have been enslaved too – it was wrong for every one of them.
I believe a self-righteous liberal with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.
I want to know exactly which church is it where the “Reverend” Jessie Jackson preaches; and, what exactly
is his job function.
I own a gun, you can own a gun, and any red blooded American should be allowed to own a gun,
but if you use it in a crime, then you will serve the time.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more.
If it makes you mad, then 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.
I don't believe in hate crime legislation.
Even suggesting it makes me mad.
You're telling me that someone who is a minority, gay, disabled, another nationality, or otherwise different from the
mainstream of this country has more value as a human being that I do as a white male.
If someone kills anyone, I'd say that it's a hate crime.
We don't need more laws!
Let's enforce the ones we already have.
I think turkey bacon, turkey beef, turkey fake anything sucks.
I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child-it takes a parent with the guts to stand up to the kid and spank his butt and say "NO!" when it's necessary to do so.
I'll admit that the only movie that ever made me cry was Ole Yeller.
I didn't realize Dr. Seuss was a genius until I had a kid.
I will not be frowned upon or be looked down upon or be made to keep silent because I have
these beliefs and opinions.
I thought this country allowed me that right.
I will not conform or compromise just to keep from hurting somebody's feelings.
I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise.
Yes, I guess by some people's definition, I may be a bad American.
But that's tough.
