This is probably the best e-mail I’ve seen in a long, long time. The
following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA.

‘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, and delusional. 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 if it would turn out the same way as current public housing, we’re 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 put away for the rest of your sorry life.

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. (AMEN!)

ARTICLE IX:

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an America 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 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!

(and last but not least….)

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 God. 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!
