Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason. That is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

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!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.

I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry *behind* if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

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.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

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!

I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa ; so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe . I am proud to be from America and nowhere else.

And if you don't like my point of view, tough. DON'T PASS IT ON.

Thats what pawpaw calls "porch sense"

I doubt he said all of that. There was some chain e-mail being passed off as something he said a while back and it all turned out to be false. Granted a lot of us agree with a lot of the points in that post.

BS. Nice sentiment, but it didn't come from that senile old bastard.

What I wanna know is, why is it every time i pick my nose, it's full again 5 minutes later?

Andy Rooney never said any such thing that is absolutely contrary to everything he has said in the past.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 2:50:25 PM EDT
Nope !

It is HIGHLY unlikely he said any of it. I stopped listening to him and his 60 (lousy) Minutes co-whores a long time ago.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 2:51:30 PM EDT
Andy is a leftist bastard. He said no such things.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 2:51:34 PM EDT
I actually hate Andy Rooney and Paul Harvey too. Good day.

At least George Carlin did'nt get credit for this one. He's as big a commie as Andy Rooney.

He said at least some of that stuff. I know because I watched him say it. I'm pretty sure this was on the show where they interviewed Jose Canseco about steroids in baseball. Some things may have been added because I can't remeber all of them.

Rooney can ESAD.

Rooney was right on one thing: the M1 Abrams tanks was worthless, we should have bought some more trucks instead.

1999 called and wanted you to know your post is false and is generally a steaming pile of shit.

Jesus, we need a sticky that says check snopes before posting any email that your uncle Bob sent you.

No wonder the Nigerian scammers are doing so well.
