Subject Say's It All

Subject: Fw: Says it all

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
And life isn't fair, but it's good!!
 
 
I'm 83.  Except for brief period in the 50s 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 "honour"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offence; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape 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 20s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.
 
Yes, I'm <snip> 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.  Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!  This is your chance to make a difference.

Thank You For The Words Of Wisdom...As Is Said
Someday everything will make perfect sense.
So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears,and keep
reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.

When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is
remember the teacher is always quiet during a test.

Not Afraid to pass this on........

When I started reading this I thought this person got it right and could be the sentiments of any older person. I found myself agreeing with everthing he said, especially the part of being glad of going out instead of entering altho I am not his age. A little surprised it was Bill Cosby even though he has said these same things before, I found this very eloquent. Thank you Mr. Cosby.

Thanks sully16, good to hear from you too!! I also was surprised when I read to the end who it was from. I liked those words of wisdom you offered Jani, "When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is remember the teacher is always quiet during a test." I will surely have to agree that we are definitely being put to test with this moron we consider as our nations leader?

Just now reading this. While I agree with the logic Cosby presents this also tells me why Cosby is being accused of so much rape. He has become the enemy of the Left for saying these words and must be destroyed!

At first I thought Cosby might be guilty of one rape but after so many women have come forward and coupling those allegations with his wisdom above, I believe Cosby is being targeted for destruction.

That's a very reasonable assumption. I have intensely wondered why it took all these accusers so long to come out after all this time, and why they all came out at the same time?

I also believe there is more to this tragedy than is being reported.
