    Another Cosby, I

    Not sure of the origin but the content is true'




    Bill Cosby "I'm 76 and Tired" Worth reading.....


    This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the UK
    , United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand etc.

    "I'm 76 and I'm Tired"

    I'm 76. 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 "honour"; 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 mandrassa 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 bedeck themselves 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 76.. Because, mostly, I'm
    not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just
    sorry for my granddaughter and her 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 76 and I'm tired. If you don't forward this you are part of the
    problem".

    According to Snopes this was written by Robert A. Hall, not Bill Cosby.
