Over the last three days, I must have read that silly “Bill Cosby” thing 8x. Allow me a quasi-rebuttal.
I’m tired too… I’m tired of people complaining about pressing 1 for English. Really, is it that hard? These people act like their ancestors danced off the boat singing Yankee Doodle Dandy. They didn’t, and most of them never learned much English. That’s probably why they formed their own little neighborhoods, like Little Italy and Chinatown.
I’m tired of people accusing Islam of being some violent religion. Yes, it has asshole extremists, as do all religions. But most of the people doing the bitching would identify themselves as some form of Christian. You know, that peace-loving religion that blows up abortion clinics, used to burn people alive, and has a man nailed to a cross as its symbol… Yea, that one.
I’m tired of moms and dads all up in arms about bullying. Because I’m quite sure when growing up, many of them were some of the biggest pricks in the school. So I’m kind of happy their kid is getting teased. Because then, it’s not called bullying – it’s called Karma.
I know a lot of you are tired of the “takers”. Me too. In fact, my “out on disability” neighbor and I were discussing this the other day as he was hanging sheetrock in his new den. He’s really good with a power saw, too.
I’m tired of adults bitching about 20-somethings and their jeans. Because weren’t these the same people known for big hair, leg warmers, and the Don Johnson sport jacket? Just checking.(side note: I could have went back to the seventies on that last one, but thinking of Plaid and Bell Bottoms hurt too much.)
While I’m on that, we older folks have no right dismissing today’s music either. Because our age group listened to The Village People, Duran Duran, and Motley Crue. At least I can admit they kind of sucked.
I’m tired of you anti-gay bigots. Passing gay marriage did nothing, except let people who are in love marry. Nobody was required to marry a gay person, and children were not forced to watch them consummate the marriage. And, oddly enough, my own heterosexual marriage somehow survived.
I’m tired of parents lamenting on how kids don’t play outside anymore. Well, they would if you would let them…
I’m tired of old white guys who haven’t gotten laid in nineteen years commenting on rape, birth control, and abortion. Shut the @#$% up, you Dockers-wearing morons.
I’m tired of people complaining about sports stars and movie stars making money. When someone is amongst the best in the world at something, they get paid. Most people can’t make a decent pot of coffee, let alone be the best in the world at anything.
And now I’m tired of pointing out the obvious. Later.
