I’m 73 and I’m Tired

 And I thought I was just an old grouch. Then I read this

 

This should be required reading for every man,
woman and child in the U.S.A……..

I’m 73
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 every Tom, Roberto, Habeeb & D’quan, many of who are illegal immigrants, thinking they are entitled to anything for free while they sit on their butts with their hands out and I’m tired of them expecting and demanding that we change our customs and social programs to be more inline with theirs. If they don’t want to live like Americans, they should go back where they came from.

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 use our oil money to fund
mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada , while no American nor Canadian 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.

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’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.

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 damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 73.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughters and grandsons.

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 73 and I’m tired.”

If you don’t forward this you are part of the problem

AMEN
