"Oh No !!". Not another Do Gooder Know all

Andy Rooney (Caucasian) DOB Jan 1919, Colourful Radio personality.

Good for him!!!
I'm surprised CBS let him get away with this, even though he's right. in places. Like I shall do a bit of picking, You too are invited to do likewise.

Right on, Andy Rooney!

Andy Rooney said on '60 Minutes' In the USA a few weeks back:
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, Aboriginal Legal Service, 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 or Tony Mundane will be knocking down your door.

Vest Say's. Now that seems to right for me, including Tony Mundane* mis-spelt* but fits.
Now this is where he gets up my nose.

Andy Rooney Say's.
Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball or cricket bat, or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the game.

Vest Say's. Well the opinion of yet another red neck gun lover, He hasn't heard that it so much easier to kill fifty school kids with a gun than it is with a baseball bat or a knife.

Andy Rooney Say's. I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE? ARE YOU LISTENING GERMAINE GREER?.

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right 'NOT' to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

Vest Say's. Yes I'll go along with that.

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 believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, 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, Canadian or Australian 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 you 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 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 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 a building.

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, just as Canadians and Australians are proud to be from their countries - and if you don't like my point of view, tough...

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! And what about CANADIANS and AUSTRALIANS? We feel the same. Bravo for the Canadians and Australians too!!! It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having 'In God We Trust' on our money and having 'God' in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to BE QUIET!!!.

Vest Say's I'll go along with that too except the tattoos and body piercings, and even the God segment in the last para despite belonging to a Non Prophet Organisation. Swearing on the Bible would not make me feel uncomfortable if for some obscure reason I was brought before the Beak.

Spot on as K wud say

The anger in your heart makes u a killer

there are white lies
black lies
and honest lies

any fool can tell the truth
Vest said…
Jimmy: I make no apoligies for deleting two of you obnoxious comments. will you ever learn.
Public figures like MKG were not necessarily bright all the time. Anyone with half a brain would realise that, without access to a gun you cannot shoot someone.

All redneck American theories are absolute nonsensical.

I wouldn't live with a guy who owned a gun, the common traits of gun owners put people at risk who are close to them.
Guns are designed to kill aren't they?.....::(((
Jimmy said…
a gun only kills the body
censorship kills his soul

I tot Australia and UK
gave u freedom of speech
Jimmy said…
its kinda funny
Vest is from the military establishment

In the military particularly the Army, u r trained to kill

I know Nandan a bright kid who joined the Commandos

he once bragged I can kill u in 21 ways

Costy laffed isnt one way sufficient !

Nandan's unit was in one of the outfits that stormed the Golden Temple in Amritsar

the Indian Army was ordered by Indira Gandhi to flush out the Khalistanis from the Temple

they were asked to go in barefoot in respect of Sikh sentiment

and dont do damage to the temple
They were successful

Nandan was in the hit list of the Khalistanis

after the operation he was secreted away in an unknown destination with 24 hour Commnado guards for him and his family

He lives to tell the tale
Jimmy said…
Lt Col Nandan lived
Indira Gandhi was shot to death by her Sikh bodyguards, Army men
Jimmy said…
just for the record ..

her son Sanjay Gandhi had died earlier in a plane crash

her other son Rajiv Gandhi became PM and went into Sri Lanka with the Army to fight the LTTE

the Indian Army failed and returned home

Rajiv was blown to death by a suicide bomber woman of the LTTE

al that remained after the blast was his LOTTO shoes

his widow Sonia Gandhi then entered politics but turned down the PMs post in favor of Manmohan Singh

Sonia is Italian, a Catholic
she is now head of the Congress Party
Vest said…
Hey Jimmy: Yes we do have freedom of speech in the UK and in Australia, under certain interpretations.
Filthy language it seems is here to stay until something worse takes its place.
However, the two main taboo issues are one; Slander; which can quickly create a bank a/c deficit, and Sedition, which can be dealt with by various periods of incarceration to the ultimate severity by being 'Topped'.

Losing my religion

28 Sep 2008, 0116 hrs IST, Chidanand Rajghatta

In the past fortnight, in the time some cretins have vandalised churches in India, at least two new Hindu temples opened in the United States.

Hindus of Rochester, New York, birthplace of Eastman Kodak and Xerox, will no longer have to drive down to the Big Apple now to worship.
Vest said…
Today Sunday is my day of rest. Non Prophet day.
In dire need, much solace can be found in alternative beliefs, like praying to a garbage bin , an old car engine, a lamp post or even a sack of potatoes and they can be far less costly than the major league faiths.

Forrester said Newman’s work had raised $250 million and helped thousands of children worldwide suffering from life threatening conditions with his 11 Hole in the Wall camps.
“He saw the Camps as places where kids could escape the fear, pain and isolation of their conditions, kick back, and raise a little hell,” added Forrester.

“Through the Camps, well over 135,000 children have had the chance to experience what childhood was meant to be.”

Have your say
Thank you Paul Newman. You were a good decent Human Being , a fine family man and an example to us all.In the day of cheap so called Celebrity you stood like a Colossus. God Bless you Paul.

Why does a person need a GUN?

Vest said…
Jimmy; K will not kill you that I am certain, K is a forgiving person. although somewhat forgetful.
I'm sure your heartfelt deepdown apoligy to her will result in forgiveness. Whether or not she allows you to return to her blog, being that you are a complete asshole at times is open to speculation.
Vest said…
Keshi: You ask why does a person need a gun?

Answer: Why?, to kill of course.xxx.
Jimmy said…
Boris: And so I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Actually, make that "I run through the valley of the shadow of death" - in order to get OUT of the valley of the shadow of death more quickly, you see.
Sonja: Judgment of any system, or a priori relationship or phenomenon exists in an irrational, or metaphysical, or at least epistemological contradiction to an abstract empirical concept such as being, or to be, or to occur in the thing itself, or of the thing itself. Boris: Yes, I've said that many times.

Countess Alexandrovna: My bedroom at midnight? Boris: Perfect. Will you be there too? Countess Alexandrovna: Naturally. Boris: Until midnight then. Countess Alexandrovna: [presses his hand to her bosom] Midnight. Boris: Make it a quarter to twelve. Countess Alexandrovna: Midnight. Boris: But of course.
Death: You're an interesting young man. We'll meet again. Young Boris: Don't bother. Death: It's no bother.
Jimmy said…
Boris: Sonja, are you scared of dying?
Sonja: Scared is the wrong word. I'm frightened of it.
Boris: That's an interesting distinction.

Mother: He'll go and he'll fight, and I hope they will put him in the front lines.
Boris: Thanks a lot, Mom. My mother, folks.

Drill Sergeant: You want a dishonorable discharge?
Boris: Yes sir, either that or a furlough.
Drill Sergeant: One, two. One, two. One, two.
Boris: Three is next, if you're having any trouble.
Jimmy said…
Anton: Grushenko? Isn't he the young coward all St. Petersburg is talking about?
Boris: I'm not so young. I'm thirty-five.

Anton: If you so much as come near the Countess, I'll see that you never see the light of day again. Boris: If a man said that to me, I'd break his neck.
Anton: *I* am a man.
Boris: Well, I mean a much shorter man.
Boris: I got a perfect build for clothes. I'm a twenty-eight dwarf.

Boris: I have no fear of the gallows.
Father: No? Boris: No. Why should I? They're going to shoot me.
Jimmy said…
Countess Alexandrovna: You are the greatest lover I've ever had. Boris: Well, I practice a lot when I'm alone.

Soldier: He was from my village. He was the village idiot.
Boris: Yeah, what did you do, place?
[Struck by lightning, Old Nehamkin is a pile of ashes]

Mother: What is it, Old Nehamkin? You are not looking well.

Gen. Lecoq: Now men, because you are all getting a three-day furlough before going into battle, we would like to show you this little hygiene play. [the actors step forward and the play begins]

Woman hygiene class: Goodbye. I hope you had a good time.
Soldier: I did. I had a good time. Oh, what's this sore on my lip? I better see the doctor. [He steps to his right and another actor stands up]

Soldier: Doc, I have this sore on my lip. Doctor: You have a social disease my friend.
Soldier: Oh my God! Doctor: If you do not treat it, you will go blind... Or insane! [Applause]
Jimmy said…
Gen. Lecoq: Well men, that is the end of the play. Have a good time on your furlough and take care of yourselves.
Soldier: Well, what did you think of the play?
Boris: Oh, it was weak. I was never interested. Although the part of the doctor was played with gusto and verve and the girl had a delightful cameo role. A puckish satire of contemporary mores. A droll spoof aimed more at the heart than the head.

Soldier: As for me I'm planning to spend the next three days in a brothel. Care to come with me? Boris: No, I went to a brothel once in my life. I got hiccups you know, it was over like that.

Drill Sergeant: From now on you'll clean the mess hall and the latrine!
Boris: Yes, sir! How will I tell the difference?

Sonja: Boris, you're a coward! Boris: Yes, but I'm a militant coward.
[last lines]

Boris: The question is have I learned anything about life. Only that human being are divided into mind and body. The mind embraces all the nobler aspirations, like poetry and philosophy, but the body has all the fun. The important thing, I think, is not to be bitter... if it turns out that there IS a God, I don't think that He's evil. I think that the worst you can say about Him is that basically He's an underachiever. After all, there are worse things in life than death. If you've ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know what I'm talking about. The key is, to not think of death as an end, but as more of a very effective way to cut down on your expenses.
Jimmy said…
Regarding love, heh, what can you say?

It's not the quantity of your sexual relations that counts. It's the quality. On the other hand if the quantity drops below once every eight months, I would definitely look into.

Well, that's about it for me folks. Goodbye.
