"I’m Tired" by Robert A. Hall

be 63 soon.
Except for one semester in college when jobs were
scarce, and a six-month period when I was between jobs but
job-hunting every day, I’ve worked hard, since I was 18.
Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour
weeks, and haven’t called in sick for seven or eight years.
I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my
income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no
retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

of being told that I have to "spread the wealth around" 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 or stupid to earn it.

of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in
their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick,
I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at
three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on
one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who
passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that
created the bubble, help them with their own money.

of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like
Michael Moore, George Soros, and Hollywood entertainers who live
in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty
years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of
Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of
Mexico, the tolerance of Iran for Christian people, and the
freedom of speech of Venezuela . Won’t multiculturalism be

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
Christians 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 Shari’a law tell them to.

"a man should be judged by the content of his character, not
by the color of his skin.." I’m tired of being told
that "race doesn’t matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when
it’s all that matters in affirmative-action jobs, lower college
admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming
them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the
ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts
minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of US Senators
from Illinois.

it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a
black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote
the emancipation proclamation. I just wish that it
was someone
who believes more in freedom and the individual, and less arrogantly of
an all-knowing government.

of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural
expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were
wonderful; that Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time,
but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control
weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush’s military
records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed
Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for
VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as
potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are
dropping their subscriptions, or switching to Fox News? Get a clue.
I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and
Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures"
we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and
madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no
American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue, or religious
school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global
warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I
live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our
jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and
granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and
if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

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
