Me and Andy Rooney

The thoughts of Andy Rooney have been floating around on the Internet for years. Are they truly Andy's thoughts? I don't know. I haven't checked them out.
They may be some new thoughts added to old thoughts attributed to Andy. They may be just thoughts of some folks who wanted to sound off, using Andy Rooney's name, and admitting that it sure sounds like Andy Rooneyism.

I'm putting in a few of mine....and borrowing a few from what was supposedly said by Andy. I hope he doesn't mind. I hope you don't mind.

I watched the Oscar show on ABC. No real thoughts on the awards, winners, presenters, or the host. What I enjoyed most was the commercials. Much better than the ones on this year's Super Bowl show.

Congrats to Al Gore - “Inconvenient Truth” won an Oscar for best documentary!

Garland, Texas doesn't have a full time Post Master. We have an interim chief.
The last one left town and returned to the Carolinas; his wife insisted on in. Probably too many rednecks in Texas.
Strange as it seems to me, the last Post Master was an Egyptian National and was not a citizen of the U. S. of A. Perhaps with the next appointment, the Post Master General, John E. Potter, can find a suitable American for the position.

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!

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!

I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop.

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.

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!

And if you don't like my point of view, tough...
