In God We Trust 

Good for him!!!
Surprised CBS let him get away with this even though he's right

Right on, Andy Rooney !

Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" 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, 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 will be knocking  down your door.

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

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 ?

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.

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. < BR>
I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigare ttes, a  newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if  you want to be an American 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 the 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

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!


I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don't. 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!!!

I have to agree 100% with Andy on this one, Lala

I'm in agreeance with most of the views from this post. Some things are just simply missinforming. Fact of the matter is, MIss Black America was started before blacks were allowed to be in the Miss America, not just so black people can join a club. Black people complain of the KKK, white people complain of the priveleges black people have and they both complain about people of other races like anyone has room talk. What sense does that make? I don't think people should be discriminatd for their race, ethnicity, handicap or whatever else. Truth is, they do and all of that does matter. One man standing on television saying what he thinks or doesn't think is his personal opinion. If in god we trust is what most people believe, than why are people worrying what others have and they don't. One of the ten commandments are thou shall not covet thy neighbor. Instead of crying over the benefits of another be thankful for what you have, because one day you will be the victim of circumstance.
