Thumbs up Bill cosby, you just gotta love the guy!!

[B]Here's some more profound words by Mr Tired himself![/B]
....................I'm 75 & tired, by Bill Cosby.........................



I'm 75. 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
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 75. Because, mostly, I'm not
going to have to see the world these people are making.

I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children.

Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

"He is charming and iconic, one of the most culturally important and successful comedians ever, an elder statesman of the entertainment industry."

"He's also someone who has been accused by multiple women of drugging them and sexually assaulting them."

That's funny, I read that and thought there's no freaking way Bill Cosby wrote that.

I remember when Bill Cosby was funny and not just another Black activist.

Has he been convicted or just accused of this charge?

Garage
Does anyone know of a politician who never misrepresented facts (lied) to get themselves elected, push a political agenda or disparage the political opposition? I don't.

As Snopes points out Bill Cosby never said any of this, the real author is Robert A. Hall, a former Massachusetts state senator. It appears someone with a political agenda made the change and sent the falsely attributed email out as as a chain email. Attributing something to a respected celebrity gives it more credibility than attributing it to a politician with an agenda.

That makes sense, because you can literally feel the blatant political agenda effervescing off of that text.
