    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 UnitedCaucasianCollege 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.

    I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, 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 ass 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 Shut Up and BE QUIET!!!

    If you agree, pass this on, if not delete.

    Whoa, there, Bob.Meyers.

    This one's been bouncing around for about 4 years, so it must have been a real Golden Oldies 60 Minutes rerun that you caught.

    Not that you might not know what you're talking about, but could you cite the correct transcript from CBS? You know CBS.....they put 60 Minutes on the air. You can find full-text transcripts on the net, so pop that one up here, please.

    Uhhhh, Bob.Meyers & Skip - maybe you should click on that link, as John Malcolm suggested.

    The link shows that the story is FALSE.

    It also has Andy Rooney's written statement that he DIDN'T SAY this stuff, and that in fact some it was vile racist crap that he wouldn't say.

    Can't you guys do even the tiniest bit of research, when John Malcolm has posted the link and all you have to do is CLICK on it? Do you enjoy looking stupid in front of people who have clicked on it?

    The above rant was not written by the America's favorite curmudgeonly commentator and has never been featured on "60 Minutes." The text is a liberally edited version of a popular rant that has been incorrectly attributed to George Carlin, Ted Nugent, Dennis Leary and Rush Limbaugh, to name a few. Rooney is just the latest celebrity to fall victim to the "well, he ought to have said it" mindset of e-mail chain letter forwarders. A quick check of Rooney's archive on CBS.com proves that he never said it on the air.

    Actually, the rant above originated in in a FreeRepublic.com forum in 2000. It was titled "I am a Bad Republican" and was posted by an author known only as "Bootyist Monk," who takes full responsibility for it. Very soon thereafter, in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks, it was changed slightly, retitled "I Am A Bad American," attributed to Carlin or Nugent and made a very popular chain letter.

    Attributing things like this to people who seem likely to have said them serves two purposes: First, it elevates the rant from one-person's anonymous opinion to fact-by-proxy. Second, it separates us from the comments, giving a nice buffer zone to protect one from being blamed/credited for them, should our friends and family members not share the views.

    This statement is right on the money--and it probably says volumes for the way many of us truly feel--thank-you for sending it Mr.Schultz.--

    Does it make any differance who said those things? It's all the truth for most Americans. Tell it like it is, and that is what it is.
