The New Bill OF Rights ((OOC ))

 The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Aye from GA, USA.

"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more
riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the
blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our
great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain
and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny,
guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bed-wetters.

We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people
are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill
of NON-Rights."

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or
any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire
them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This
country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone --
not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a
different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably
always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you
stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not
expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives
independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing.
Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly
help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing
generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve
nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional
couch potatoes. (This one is my pet peeve...get an education and go to
work....don't expect everyone else to take care of you!)

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would
be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not
interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people.
If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be
surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others.
If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other
citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock
you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big
screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want
you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but
we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and
vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American
means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way,
is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of
idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of

ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where
you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever
you came from! (lastly....)

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history
or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God.
And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any
faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN
GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are
uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!

If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don't have to, and
nothing tragic will befall you if you don't. I just think it's about
time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the
United States speak out because if you do not, who will?
"As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy

rent-free space in your mind." -- Isabelle Holland

  1. Sounds like a lost scene from Team America, Moose.

    Seriously though, while I agree with some of the sentiments contained alot of what is written is discriminative and bordering on racist.
    Modern day Americans should remember where they came from and the people who have borne them. Did they speak the language? Did they all follow the ideals of a Christian God? Does it make anyone less American if they don't? Were the native American people consulted in the 'Englishness' of the language? Incidentally, the God of the Jews, Christians and the Muslims (who one of those articles was clearly nudged towards)are one and the same. For anyone who bothers to search historic or indeed theological sources they will see that all three holy books lay claim to containing the word of the God of Moses and Abraham. (Jesus, also in the Bible and Quran)
    America was built on the blood sweat and tears of immigrant populations from around the world but that is conveniently forgotten in these days of greed, hate and paranoia.
    As an aside, I am not anti American nor anti any other nation of people but I am someone from the outside, who sees the full picture, who sees uncensored news reports (censoring is a vicious crime against the American people) and who sees nations crumble under the might of those stronger than them in the name of war for profit.
    Like a lot of consitutions that were written several hundred years ago, some of it does not hold true in modern times. Perhaps if the author of your article was braver Moose, they would have included the following
    " Article XII: If you do not agree with any or all of the above, we will forcibly convince you otherwise "
