"I'm 81 and I'm Tired"

I'm 81. I've worked hard supporting myself since I was 15 and later put myself through college and graduate school with my earnings. My wife and I raised a family without any help excepting that of a monthly paycheck provided by my employer. Despite some health challenges, I put in 50-60 hour weeks, and rarely called in sick in all those years. I made a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given today's government-created economy the money we saved for retirement is being quickly eroded due to the decisions made by that gaggle that comprises the central socialist government.

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 I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help, but if they bought Mc Mansions at three times the price of our paid-off, condo, on one-third of my annual income, then let the left-wing Congress rats who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires and billionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood 'Entertainers' who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

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; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of 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 "race doesn't matter", when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia 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. My wife and I live in a three- bedroom home and our ridiculously termed 'carbon footprint' is about 5% of Al Gore's, and if you're greener than Gore, you're green enough.

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 while they tried to fight it off? I believe homosexuals and pedophiles at one point in their lives chose to be that way, and druggies chose to take drugs.

I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and I've never known Catholics, Protestants or Jews that wanted to kill people just because the victims didn't share the killer's religion. I'm not willing to fast track for citizenship any person, who got here illegally. Many illegals have a criminal record and are incapable of supporting their family who usually are collecting welfare.

I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves.

As a U. S. Army veteran I realize that bad things happen in war. After all in Infantry basic training we were taught to kill the enemy and break things. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I'm tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. And I'm tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I'm glad I live in Florida instead of Illinois, where the " Illinois Combine" of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama's cabinet.

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both 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.

Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I'm real 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.

Yes, I'm tired. But I'm also glad to be 81 because I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my grandchildren.

Jensen -- that was one of my all-time favorite rants. BRAVO! Say it, brutha!

Here was one gem of a line out of a bunch of gems:

"I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"?
HA!

P.S. -- I think we're all sick and tired of this non-stop political whining, grating and gnawing at us from the MSM-Left and Globalists. It seems it ALL started after 9/11. If its been a PsyOp, it's worked. TOO WELL.

Frankly, I believe pre-9/11 was the last time most of us have had any real peace of mind.

Jensen, BRAVO !!!

I really liked this "rant", and agree with so much of it !!

I don't have any grandchildren, yet. But like you, I am sorry for my children. I fear for their future, and worry for their safety. Fortunately, my children have never tasted war, and I hope they never do. But the way our nation is going, I suspect they will.

I am not as old as you are, but suspect I will not be here to protect them when the time comes !!

I can only pray that God the Father will protect them !!

But you're not too tired to vote for sword dancing Wahhabi & Jungle Boogie politicians, as long as they have an (R) after their names.

You reap what you sow.

Republican US Senator John McCain has praised the head of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Maryam Rajavi, in a meeting in the Albanian capital, Tirana.

McCain, who is on an official visit to Balkan states, met Rajavi and some other members of the notorious MKO group in Tirana on Friday.

He congratulated the terrorist group’s “successful transfer” from Iraq and praised its members for what he described as “sacrifice.” http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2017/04/15/518163/US-John-McCain-MaryamRajavi-MKO-Albania-Tirana

I'm tired of political correctness. Nothing has done more to stifle free speech and cause paranoia. Well, maybe a fear of a sexual harassment charge.

I'm tired of "sexual harassment" charges for nothing more than boorish behavior by fellow employees.

I'm tired of people being called racist when they are simply bigots whose actions and opinions have zero impact on black lives.

I'm tired of being told not to use the "N" word when blacks say nigger all the time, even over the air in their rap music.

I'm tired of no-talent, ignorant, misogynistic, racist, expletive-laden, cop-hating rap "music".

I'm tired of one-size-fits-all "zero tolerance" policies. Let the person in charge interpret the rules. That's what they're paid the big bucks to do.

I'm tired of the atheists who have removed God from our society using the excuse that the government is somehow establishing a religion. Really? Which religion is that?

And I'm tired of faggots trying to convince us their lifestyle is n normal and they're no different than the rest of us. No, your lifestyle choice is perverted, dangerous, hedonistic and selfish and explains your high rates of depression, drug use and suicide.

Embarrassing video of Trump, and Bush !! They both look like idiots ! I realize they had foreign relations enhancement in mind, but they should have figured out a way without looking stupid.
