    Bill Cosby "I'm 83 and Tired"

    "I'm 83 and Tired" Worth reading.....



    "I'm 83 and I'm Tired"

    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. Except for some 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
    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 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 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.


    " I'm 83 and I'm tired. If you don't agree you are part of the problem!

    I disagree with some what he has to say but Bill Cosby is awesome and an amazing human being. It's some bullshit that the black community shunned him when he criticized the lack of intelligence in their community.

    I now respect this man more than I ever have. I knew there was a reason I always liked him.

    Is still one of the funniest comedy albums of all time. I remember being a little kid and listening to it over and over on my parents' record player.

    ...Sorry, I'm a huge Bill Cosby fan.

    The Cos is denying he wrote the piece appearing in the OP:

    "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, which is a day when we should all come together. Whoever wrote this email is not thinking about our country, or what is important. If you get the email, it’s time to hit DELETE."

    If you got the BOGUS email, it’s time to hit DELETE! - Bill Cosby

    Remember last year when this stuff was entitled "I'm 76 and I'm tired" and Bill Cosby said on his website "If you got the BOGUS email, it’s time to hit DELETE!".

    I always knew Bill Cosby was a good person from his comedy to his recent comments about blacks owning their own problems and to quit blaming white people for drugs, crimes, unwed mothers, etc.

    Now, he is taking on the liberal culture as a whole....awesome.

    "Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson wrote a book in 2005 entitled Is Bill Cosby Right or Is the Black Middle Class Out of Touch?[21] In the book, Dyson wrote that Cosby was overlooking larger social factors that reinforce poverty and associated crime; factors such as deteriorating schools, stagnating wages, dramatic shifts in the economy, offshoring and downsizing, chronic underemployment, and job and capital flight.[22]

    "Dyson suggested Cosby's comments 'betray classist, elitist viewpoints rooted in generational warfare.'"[21]

    "Cornel West defended Cosby and his remarks, saying, 'he's speaking out of great compassion and trying to get folk to get on the right track, 'cause we've got some brothers and sisters who are not doing the right things, just like in times in our own lives, we don't do the right thing... He is trying to speak honestly and freely and lovingly, and I think that's a very positive thing.'"
