Bill Cosby "I'm 83 and Tired"

"I'm 83 and Tired" Worth reading.....

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in all the world...

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 madrassa 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 them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making
themselves un-employable 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.

With all due respect, I do not believe this fits Bill Cosby's life experience. I believe this piece has been innacurately attributed to him.
Not to say that the sentiments expressed here are not valid. I just don't think the author was Bill Cosby.

Whether you agree with the letter or not, Bill Cosby MUST be tired. Why? Because he forgot hold old he is. Bill Cosby was born in July, 1937. DO THE MATH!!!

Did you Google it, jackass? Bill Cosby's own website states that it has been attributed to him falsely. It was actually written by Robert A Hall, a former Massachusetts State Senator and US Marine. This was a blog entry from Mr. Hall on February 19, 2009.

Do not try to lie and quit spreading stupid and shit, facts detracting from credibility and mental abilities because liars [save for dim Dems and loony libs] lose all trust as they must.

From Bill Cosby's site:
Thereís an email floating around Ė entitled ďIím 76 and tiredĒĖ purportedly sent by me. I did not write the email, I did not send the email, Iím not 76, and I donít subscribe to the ugly views expressed in the email. We are coming up to an important anniversary on Sunday, which is a day when we should all come together. Whoever wrote this email is not thinking about our country, or what is important. If you get the email, itís time to hit DELETE.

The original author wrote a very good piece, for which he should get the credit. For some reason, some moron thought is wise to give credit to the Cosby guy. Why? To make a lie more credible?

Who gives a shiznat what Bill Cosby thinks anyway? Leave that to the libs. Why would anyone listen to a celebrity anyway? I mean, I get why liberals do it..... because they are too stupid to do their own meaningful research.
