"I'm 63 and I'm Tired" by Robert A. Hall

I'm 63. 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 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.
I'm tired 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 for Christian people of Iran, and the freedom of speech of Venezuela.
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 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 tells them to.
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 U.S. Senators from Illinois. I'm tired 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 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.
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 mandrassa 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.
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 don't think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs.
I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military.... Those are the citizens we need.
I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
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. Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing. 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 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter.

Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.

A man after my own heart. I'm tired too, but also angry. Very very angry.

tsnamm said...

Bingo...a very succinct analysis of our current culture in the "West". The question for the rest of us is,"what do we do"? I am also very pessimistic about the future of our country and Europe as well. Frankly this upcoming mid-term election is a watershed in this otherwise downward spiral. If we don't say NO now in the ballot box, I fear we will never have another electoral opportunity to change.

I'm not against Hispanics.

Another 30 years of Muslim immigration and he'll say he's not against Muslims.

And be more tired.

If he lives that long.

"Ditto" on the anger, Dude. Ditto.

As regards what do we do, the big problem is that there are no parties worth voting for. The anti-immigration ones are too small and peripheral. and in the US the two parties are like tweedledum and tweedledee on this issue.

The recession to get much worse is the only hope.

While Robert A Hall speaks some sense, he sounds to me like a neocon puppet. We only hear from his sort when the Democrats screw-up. The Democrats dance to the tune of left-wing Jews and the Republicans dance to the tune of Zionist Jews more or less. It's the fault the of baby-boomers like Robert A Hall that the USA is about to become a Spanish speaking country or even split up. This fella was a senator not an ordinary joe. My sympathy is with the ordinary Americans not his sort.

Tubbercurry said...

I think the last comment is a bit unfair. I don't think he'sa neocon. None of these bastards put on a uniform but still sent thousands of American soldiers to their deaths fighting Israel's wars.

To me he just seems to have a pride in the defence forces....

The reason behind the influx of non whites into white nations is to diminish our numbers, culture and way of life. This is no accident. The jewish media and power structure is at the root of this obsenity/insanity.

Swami said...

anon 6.13. THis could be true, but it's not the full story. I'd love to know what the full story is tho'

anon 06:13,

It's true that Jewish ownership of the media is partly to blame, but it takes two to tango. Whites are being made stupid by dumbing down of the education system and dysgenics. Many simply do not question the mainstream media message. We depend on blogs such as TIS that we visit everyday for the plain unvarnished truth and intelligent news analysis. It's easy to get the impression that a revolution is around the corner; However we unfortunately constitute a small demographic fraction of huge idiocracies.

The jews have been stirring up trouble and subverting white nations since their spawn upon our planet. They dont percieve non whites as potential threats. The arrogance of the jew is immense. The main enemy of the jew is the white race. Hence the all out attack on whites. They are still abit but hurt on the numerous expelsions delt out by formerly all white nations who had the where with all to recognize their ways. Anyhow Ive linked up a video from some historical men whom had prominence and power in history. The jews have been doing this subversion for centuries and will continue to deflect their end game on lesser races. The chosenites truelly believe they are the chosen ones to rule over all. The current way of their deception/controll is to pit enemy on enemy in close proximity. The media and banking controll is apparent to any clear minded individual. Theyve never had it this good and us goyim have never had it so bad.

Here is another somewhat disturbing video filled with quotes from our friendly chosenites.
Those poor jews and thier friendly but misunderstood ways of insanity.

This is scarry, people of 63 discover that to be a nation you need:
One Volk, not 50% mexigos, 20% asians, 20% black, 20% white with all their different cultures, languages, ideas and aspirations.
One Country, that means with borders and protectionism in job and immigration, therefore not totaly dependant on global worlwide market for jobs and employment.
One Boss or at least one kind of Leadership, not half way liberal, half way conservative, half way free but with half the things forbidden because of political correctness.

Yes, to be a Nation, you need Nationalism, there is no way around. Otherwise, the US can pretend at best to be a loose federation open to worldwide free market.

There is a case running on cnn about a rape murder of a white girl by, you guess it... yes.

A case could be make that the public school system is partly responsible for the apparent naive behavior of the typical white girl victim. By teaching kids of all races that everybody is equally nice (or not nice), the school system completely ignores the fact that people are not, actually, equally nice. These kind of murders are more likelly to be commited by blacks on white (6 times, I believe, than the opposite) and therefore a case could be make that, not only the school system completely unprepares white girls to real life situations, but worse, let them believe that potentially dangerous situations are actually good because they involve all sort of interacial relations promoted by the media.
It's not the role of the commercial medias to promote good behavior, I know that, but it's the role of the school system to do so. For example, the media promotes junk food consumption and the teachers correct by telling the danger of abusing junk food. The media clearly wins here, but that's another story. At least it could be said that the teachers are warning the kids and do their job. It's not the case at all with interracial relationships.
Of course, I realise that it would be difficult for a teacher to tell his/her multiracial class that 'strangers can be dangerous, but especially if you are white, be carefull with latinos or African americans' but i find it even harder to leave this task to the parent, most often the father.
For the teacher, it's mostly the fear to castigate some group of students, so they losely warn against junk food in class by fear to hurt the feelings of the 50% overweighted students present in the class. Well, there is no way around, to correct the intensive mediatic propaganda that promotes dangerous behavior, some feelings must be hurt.

In fact what teachers should be teaching is the TRUTH. This means saying, if effect, that, while there are good and bad people in all races, white gorls are 6 times more likley to be raped/mugged by a black than by a white. This is real education. But that ended many moons ago.

Basically right. Take a tour of his blog.

One of those fools who thinks everything was bad about the 1960s EXCEPT for all that "civil rights" stuff.

Fucked over the South and then is SURPRISED to find his white relatives subject to quotas.

"THAT's not what I meant!"


The best thing about the Tea Party types is they are GUARANTEED to run smack into the brick wall they REFUSE to see.

eddie said...

yes, i looked at his site. he is a bit of a neocon so fuck him.

The Irish DO NOT hate Americans. They hate neocon foreign policy whereby the US spends its time attacking other countries. But not America and even less Amercians themsleves.

Louis IX,
Dead-on. Are you familiar with the Eve Carson murder in Chapel Hill, N.C.? Your words "...let them [white girls] believe that potentially dangerous situations are actually good because they involve...interacial relations promoted by the media" are prophetic.

This fella was a senator not an ordinary joe.

This is what kinda bugged me about his rant. Yeah, I agree with a lot of what Hall said, but he was in a position to do something about it. Maybe he did -- will check his voting record in my "copious spare time" (ahem). Thing is, he never quite gets to the root of the dilemma, which is the permeation of liberal, egalitarian, social welfare ideology throughout the USA and West.
The problems he lists are symptoms of this ideology.

I am tired of hearing conservatives complain about the collapse of Western civilization, yet not addressing the ideology that motivates it. Would he be willing to renounce the liberal belief in, say, "anti-racism?" Because if not, then none of these problems will ever be addressed, much less solved.

Whites are being made stupid by dumbing down of the education system and dysgenics. Many simply do not question the mainstream media message.


The media, "Jewish" or otherwise, would have just about zero effect if people just turned it off. There are various movements for people to turn off their televisions (try a quick google on this). Interestingly enough, most of the serious media critics are from the far left (Noam Chomsky, et al), or the counter-culture.

Yet most WN seem to have the brainlock that forces them to stare at a neon tube in their living room six hours a day and watch the enemy's propaganda.

Weird, isn't it?

Henry IX said...

Californian gets to the nub of the issue. The shortcoming in Hall's rant is that he doesn't address the root cause. Apparently he's been accused of the same thing on other forums.
