How about that?

    This is what Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:

    "I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big
    campfires. I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not
    some governmental stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away
    to crack addicts for squirting out babies.

    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, that 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 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.

    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.

    I believe that if you are selling me a milk shake, 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 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 your sorry self 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 believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more
    dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

    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. Ask
    your buddy who invented the Internet to help you.

    "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. DON'T PASS IT ON!!"

    While life may not be the party we hoped for, while we're here we might as well dance.
