    Andy Rooney on 60 minutes

    "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 ass 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...

    I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD,
    INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

    It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very
    hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We
    Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't
    we just tell the 14% to Shut Up and BE QUIET!!! "
    "Confidence is food for the wise man but liquor for the fool"
