I'm 70  
 
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 in  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.  
 
I'm tired of being told  that I have to "spread the wealth" 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 to earn it.
 
I'm tired 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 Christian 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 tells them to.
 
I'm tired 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 and Canada , while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
 
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired 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 white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?
 
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we All know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense Of entitlement, rich or poor.
 
I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
 
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 70.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughters and grandsons.
