Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”: Muslims in America

Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”

Note: In light of a recent interview with Bill Cosby (found HERE), this quote seems to have been, in fact, a misquote.  I will leave this article here as a place holder.

I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, 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; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; 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 and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and Madrasa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love 479992_10200472617397721_1444369813_nand 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 or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?
I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all 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 really 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.
I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20’s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.

    He didn’t write this. He denounced it. You’re apparently on the internet, haven’t you figured out how to fact check before posting bigoted nonsense?

    “Statement from Bill Cosby:

    If you got the BOGUS email, it’s time to hit DELETE!

    There’s an email floating around — entitled “I’m 76 and tired” — purportedly sent by me. I did not write the email, I did not send the email, I’m not 76, and I don’t subscribe to the ugly views expressed in the email. We are coming up to an important anniversary on Sunday, which is a day when we should all come together. Whoever wrote this email is not thinking about our country, or what is important. If you get the email, it’s time to hit DELETE.”

    Yet no mention of the 3 billion a year that goes to Israel who spies on us more than any other Country and has been involved in false flag attacks on us like the USS Liberty. I share whoever wrote this in their frustration (it’s not from Cosby), but it’s time to look at the real terrorists hiding behind our Government as our Government is just the face, and the ugly heart is the Federal Reserve and the families that own it.

        Wow, talk about a bigot. I’m glad that all people from your country aren’t like you are.

        Show any proof any where that Islam is a peaceful religion. Everywhere that Islam is dominant, it displays itself as a terrorist, even among its own followers.
        Maybe Bill Cosby did not originate this writing, but its all true nonetheless.

    So you post a link to a Youtube video of some guy talking about what he feels with pictures of Cosby on the screen? If that is your “news” source, or your source for research, perhaps you might want to rethink where you get your information.

      Bells should already be ringing just on the basis of age. Why would Bill Cosby address himself as 83 years old when in fact he’s 75 years old! Try looking for Robert A. Halls as he is the one who wrote this “endearing” letter. Simple fact checking can go along way.

    We do not allow people to post unverified information on this site. The links you provided cite the known disinformation site “snopes” as their research site. No video interviews or other verifiable sources. If you do your research on “snopes”, then you have no standing to link to data from them.

    It’s so ridiculous that people actually believe Cosby said this….and even sadder that they agree with it.

    • May 31, 2013 at 8:40 am

      So you’re saying that you have nothing to counter with. You have no proof that he did not say it, but you have some feeling from somewhere that causes you to label others.

      You do understand that your statement is that of a bigot, right? Calling the other guests on our site “ridiculous” because they have a different viewpoint than you do. Labeling and categorizing others that believe differently than you. You have defined yourself for everyone else here.

        This is the original blog post that the text was copied from. It’s from Robert A Hall, a former Senator from Massachusetts and was posted Feb 19, 2009. It’s a great post and Hall is a great American. He deserves the credit, not Obama supporter and Hollywood liberal Bill Cosby!

    Great thing about a site like is that they commonly embed citations and links to further support what is written. For example, when they state that Bill Cosby himself has directly addressed the letter and false claim of having been penned by him, they provide a link going directly to his website where he has a public release saying just that posted right there.

    No need to claim lack of facts here or that your website does its due diligence in going straight to the source for the source in this actual matter, Dr. Cosby himself, has made it quite clear that he has nothing to do with this letter.

      As I stated above, snopes is not a source where any thinking person should go to do their research. It is biased and has little, if any, substance.

      As to your second link, anyone can buy a domain name and post in it. Domains like this are worth a lot of money if properly monetized, so the link to another site is worthless. Unless you have a video from Cosby, your response lacks substance.

    As it would seem, there are a lot of responses as to the accuracy of this quote, but nothing as to the content. I would assume then, that you all agree with the sentiment.
