"I'm 83 and I'm

I'm 83 . 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
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.
tired of being told that
Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every month I
can read dozens
of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and
for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some
offense; of Muslims murdering Christians 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.
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
madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia, New
UK, America and Canada, while no one from these
countries is allowed to
fund a church, synagogue or religious
school in Saudi Arabia or in 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
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 be-deck themselves in
tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable
while they are claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I'm damn
tired. But I'm also glad to be
83.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these
people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and their
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!
