I'm 83 and tired

I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, 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; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; 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.

Bill Cosby ‘I’m 83 And I’m Tired’ Rant Is Fake, Angers Cosby
 
Posted: February 6, 2013
Bill-Cosby-Im-Tired.jpg

A Bill Cosby rant titled “I’m 83 and I’m Tired” has been making its way around Facebook and email in recent days, one in which the comedy legend seems to rant against people who mooch off government support and those looking to “spread the wealth.”

The only problem is that those aren’t Bill Cosby’s words at all. In fact, Cosby is pretty angry that people would think it’s coming from him.

 

The Bill Cosby rant first showed up a few years ago, this time titled “I’m 76 and I’m Tired,” and now it’s making the rounds again, prompting Snopes to write an article debunking the false story.

Snopes points out that the piece was actually written by Robert A. Hall, a former state senator from Massachusetts. It started making the rounds in August 2011 attributed to Bill Cosby however.

The Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and I’m Tired” rant reads, in part:

“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. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, 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 I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the leftwing Congresscritters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them — with their own money.”

The rant goes on to target Muslims, people with tattoos, and self-absorbed athletes and politicians.

A few issues would jump out immediately. First, Bill Cosby has never identified as a right-wing conservative, and terms like “leftwing Congresscritters” sound nothing like the well-spoken doctor and more like something that would originate on right-wing radio. In fact, if Cosby were to rant about something, it would likely turn out funnier and much more well-written than the “I’m Tired” rant.

In fact, Bill Cosby has spoken out about the “I’m Tired” rant on his is website:

>“There’s an email floating around — entitled ‘I’m 76 and tired’ — purportedly sent by me. I did not write the email, I did not send the email, I’m not 76, and I don’t subscribe to the ugly views expressed in the email. We are coming up to an important anniversary on Sunday [the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks], which is a day when we should all come together. Whoever wrote this email is not thinking about our country, or what is important.”

Bill Cosby added that, if you get the “I’m 76 and I’m Tired” email (or “I’m 83 and I’m Tired”), just hit delete.
