    Found this on another site.

    "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 that they require a Bill of NO 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.

    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 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 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 overabundance of idiotic
    laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights,"

    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.

    This country is also the "Melting Pot" of the world, and what makes us so extrodianry and particular is the assimilation of the different races whom are able to get along. I believe the "english speakers" are from England, not here.
    But other than that, very well said. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Both my grandparents came from different countries in the early 1900's. They believed since they were in america and english was the country's language they should learn it and speak it and they taught it to their kids who taught it to their kids (one of which is me). They also spoke their native language and taught it to their kids who tried to teach it to their kids (me) but didnt learn /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I really wish I would have since it would be alot easier everytime I have to go to the east side or to a gas station/convienent store /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    I have no objection to the different language people speak I just think they should learn the language of the country, dont force the country to learn everyone elses language. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah of course everyone should know the language of the country they live in. But I'm saying theres nothing wrong with speaking spanish, chinese, german, or whatever the case.
