His wisdom never stopped when he was alive, and it will never stop now that he has passed. You are missed. RIP George Carlin. May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008
Imagine… George Carlin as President of the United States. Every right-winger would have a heart attack, and every liberal, or semi-liberal, and probably a fair amount of those who are neutral, would all be dancing the “happy dance.” Or dancing just like Obama did which the SCOTUS announced that the Affordable Health Care Act was not unconstitutional…
I know I would be doing this dance…. Now, I am a liberal registered as a Democrat and a supporter of Obama – even though he has done a few things I do not care for. But sometimes a leader needs to go to extremes and basically say “F-you” to those in your way is what needs to be done, and that you’re tired of their bullshit. Carlin would most definitely tell people like Boehner to kiss his ass….
George Carlin was way ahead of his time. He saw what so many people did not see when it came to politics and government, religion, as well as society as a whole. In his unique way, George Carlin would turn the “wtf’s” in life into comedy. Although as we laugh at what he says, many of us realize that the facts behind the jokes are truly no laughing matter.
George Carlin – may he rest in peace – possessed a unique way of making fun of the stupidity of mankind by combining wisdom with humor. Very blunt and straight to the point, Carlin’s combination of extraordinary intelligence AND common sense had a way of waking up even the most slumbering mind. Although Carlin may be gone in physical presence, his memory lives on.
Some of his better quotes and words of wisdom (like he had any that were bad?):
This was from his appearance at Comic Relief in 1986.
In this video he discusses pro-lifers and abortion. This is footage from one of his performances in 1996.
“How come when it’s us, it’s an abortion. When it’s a chicken, it’s an omelette.”
Here is a the audio, with video added, of George Carlin’s piece on The Truth About Republicans. This was from 1988 and Reagan was in the Whitehouse. I ask you, has much changed since then? Not really. Just cannot learn, can they.
“Forget the politicians. the politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporation. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying, to get what they want.
