I heard a quote a couple weeks ago. Can't remember who said it but it went something like this.

"If you're 19 and you're not a liberal then you don't have a heart. If you're 40 and you aren't conservative, then you don't have a brain."

Democrats believe they owe a debt to society and want to pay it with my money...
To me that is morally repugnant.

I'm 63 and I'm Tired -

A VERY GOOD READ! It pretty much says it all for me about the libtards, errrr sorry, I mean dems.

Robert A. Hall is the actor who plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show. He also is a Marine Vietnam War veteran.

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America .



"I'm 63 and I'm Tired"
by Robert A. Hall



I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, 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 I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought Mc Mansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.


I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .


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 "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.


I think it's very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.


I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia 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. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore's, and if you're greener than Gore, you're green enough.


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 while they tried to fight it off? I don't think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I #@*# sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I'm tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.


I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military.... Those are the citizens we need.


I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.


I'm tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I'm tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the " Illinois Combine" of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama's cabinet.


I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both 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.


Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.


I'm real 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.


Yes, I'm tired. But I'm also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter.


Robert A. Hall is a MarineVietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.

I just sent this to my dem representative:

Expensive and damaging public policy especially regarding the climate should never be made based upon imperfect and unproven computer models. Models should be tested both by applicability to the past and monitored for accuracy for no less than 20 years into the future before gaining acceptance. Consider what might have happened if legislation were enacted in the 70s based upon the global cooling scare climatologists foisted upon us then. Because of the ozone scare action was taken to ban CFC refrigerants but the action has contributed significantly to deaths due to food spoilage in third world countries where people cannot afford the costly new refrigerants.

The first global warming hearings were conducted during a heat wave yet global warming, if true, is less than a degree in a century. Our weather patterns are influenced by sun spots and the resulting El Ninos. So far no computer model has been able to predict El Ninos with any accuracy, yet they would have us to believe such models can predict global warming and cooling cycles.

Government and environmentalist intrusion is never without collateral damage. Consider the dismal result of eco-management of Yellowstone National Park. The CFC ban mentioned above and also consider the ban of DDT based upon unsubstantiated claims of it being a carcinogenic, millions in third world countries have died from malaria as a direct result. Then how about the ban on incandescent light bulbs how many people are going to toss those Al Gore twisty bulbs in their common trash so that mercury ends up in landfills?

The public, the media, career politicians and others lacking in scientific training jump on the latest hype with little regard to the pseudo-science behind it. The media spread nuclear winter fear in less than a week, yet it had no scientific data it was merely an opinion with lack of evidence.

Numerous studies have revealed that expectations determine outcome thus the creation of double blind studies. The scientific method requires experimental data gathered with regard to a hypothesis to be reviewed without bias however today this is seldom the case. The IPCC is a fairly large group of bureaucrats and scientists under bureaucratic control, yet certain politicians often tout them as a representing a consensus of world class scientists. Opposing viewpoints are not invited nor permitted in debate. Instead they are vilified and met with ad hominem attacks. While CO2 is cited as the culprit for global warming certain inconvenient facts are ignored. Data is chosen for areas with rising temperatures while other areas with constant or lowering temperatures are ignored and I mean areas just a hundred or so miles away with the same CO2 levels.

Another inconvenient fact is that plant life thrives on CO2, in fact many greenhouses inject CO2. That being the case have there been any studies to determine if rising CO2 levels might prove beneficial? I don’t think so since that doesn’t represent a crisis anyone can promote for gain.

I personally don't see why any one would listen to any type of weatherman. No matter what you call him, scientist,climatologist,weatherman or what ever. These people can't tell you what the weather will be tomorrow, let alone next year or farther into the future.
