AN AMERICAN


I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big campfires.


I believe I have not only the right but the duty to protect my home from intruders. If I find someone in my home attempting to rob me or do bodily harm, I should have the unquestionable right to shoot them on the spot.I should not be required to exit my house and call 911 so some lawyer can drag me through the court system and try and make me the criminal.

I prefer to buy American; but, when any business produces junk at unreasonable prices, I believe I should buy the best product available for my money. If you want me to buy American, then produce the best possible product for the money.

I don't believe there has ever been a fuel shortage. Why is it that, no matter how high the price, the lines at the gas station are still the same. It amazes me that, when the price of oil is predicted to rise, immediately the price at the pump jumps; but, when it is predicted to drop, it takes weeks for it to fall. Another amazing thing is that prior to the big gas game of the early seventies diesel fuel was at least 10 cents per gallon less than regular gas. Now it is 10 cents or more above the cost or regular gas. And isn't it amazing that home heating fuel has had similar increases.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some governmental stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts for squirting out babies.

Do not tell me that I am paying a surcharge -- it is just a loophole allowing you to collect more of my money.

I would like to know why utilities, transportation authorities, and insurance companies are not free enterprise. It must nice to run a business that just asks for an increase when it needs it. Time to redecorate the offices, give ourselves raises, and get new SUV's -- lets go for a rate increase.

Do not tell me that it is wrong to use prisoners to do municipal, state, or federal labor. They get a bed, health care, and 3 meals a day. Why should they not be used to reduce the taxes we pay. They are far better off than some of our homeless.

I think every Senator and Congressman should have to be on the same retirement and health programs as the rest of us. Then they would fix Social Security, Medicare, and the HMO Insurance. This should only be available to them after 20 years of government service. None of the rest of us can get a full retirement for less than 10 years of work.

I believe you have a right to burn the American flag. But I also believe I have every right to kick your ass for doing it.

Guns do not make you a killer. 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. If you look at the records you will find that a few of the politicians have killed more persons with cars than an equal percentage of law-abiding citizens have with guns.

I believe diplomatic immunity should be revoked. If you are in this country for any reason, you should be subject to the same laws as the rest of us. It must to be nice to do 90 MPH on any highway knowing you can't be prosecuted even if you kill somebody. Try that in one of the Arab Gulf states as a US citizen and see what happens to you.

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!

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

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 and Al Sharpton will be knocking down your door.

Reparations are a joke. I did not own any slaves, and you were never a slave. Almost every American has relatives who came here to escape some type of persecution. Our English ancestors were under control of Rome for years, the Huguenots were run out of France, and I don't see Italy or France sending any checks. If it's so bad here, there is transportation available to many of the African nations. There is a problem in that in many of the African nations you can still be sold into slavery TODAY.

If I apply for a job and I am qualified for the job, I should not be a victim of so called AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. Why should someone who has less qualifications, sometimes no qualifications, be given the job I am qualified for just because of their sex or race. Likewise, if I hire someone and they can't do the job, I should have the right to fire them on the spot -- no questions asked. I am paying them, not the Government.

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's not racial profiling, it is the law of statistics.

I know what sex is, and there are not varying degrees of it. If I received sex from one of my subordinates in my office, it wouldn't be a private matter or my personal business. I would be "FIRED" immediately!

I believe 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 grandfathers shouldn't have to 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 feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation recount votes when needed. I know what the definition of lying is.

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 would come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document and open to their interpretations.

If you do not like American Money with "IN GOD WE TRUST" on it, just deposit it into a transportation fund and we will transport your ass back to the country from which you came.

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

I believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

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. Ask your buddy who invented the Internet to help you.

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 asses 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 fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness" and of all the suck-ups that go along with it.

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!
