Oh if Congress only had the gumps to do this. We could weed out every kook, loser, loafer, moron, and radical from this country. Shared with me via e-mail, this is too good NOT to share here.
"We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any 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 not only NOT created equal, but are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of No Rights."
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.
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 ... and like the rest of us you need to simply deal with it.
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, especially as a result of your own stupidity.
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.
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.
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.
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, pool tables, weight rooms or a life
You don't 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 part time jobs, education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
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 overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights."
This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from. But we welcome you here. English is our language and like the one you left behind, we also have a culture. Learn it and blend in or else go back to the
country and the living conditions you were fleeing. You can't have it both ways.

Think about running in California to kick off your political career? BTW, if you do decide to run for presidency, all I ask of you is to stick it to the Dems in Illinois who after talking about George Ryan, well, Daley running the state now kind of thing. Just chase them out of the country, that's all I ask (note: only the Democrats in Illinois, not to be confused with the Democrats elsewhere).
