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 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 "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 Sharia 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 madrassa 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

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 them selves 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 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.
