I’m 83 and tired.

11 Feb

This e-mail has been making the rounds supposedly attributed to Bill Cosby. Although as it turns out, he did not write it, I still like what the article says. Give it a read and see if you don’t agree with most if not all of it.



I’m 83. Except for brief period in the 50’s when I was doing my National

Service, I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious

health challenges, 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; 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 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!
