George Carlin says it bluntly:
Now, there’s one thing you might have noticed I don’t complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from?
They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens.
This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.
Term limits ain’t going to do any good; you’re just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it’s not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here… like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There’s a nice campaign slogan for somebody: ‘The Public Sucks. Fuck Hope.’
Applies to any country.
Who is that guy? He sounds crazy and doesn’t make sense.
You know what’s interesting about assassination? Well, not only does it change those popularity polls in a big fucking hurry, but it’s also interesting to notice who it is we assassinate. Ya ever notice who it is, got to think who it is we kill? It’s always people who’ve told us to live together in harmony and try to love one another. Jesus, Gandhi, Lincoln, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, John Lennon – they all said, “Try to live together peacefully.” Bam! Right in the fucking head! Apparently we’re not ready for that. Yeah, that’s difficult behavior for us. We’re too busy thinking around, sitting around trying to think up ways to kill each other.
The more I read the news, the more I realize people are fucked up.
Calling a person a beast or an animal may seem like an insult, but when you think about it, humans are the worst animals there are.
Animals don’t make twisted pornography of children torturing other animals.
Animals don’t burn their stepchildren to a slow death because they have jealousy issues with the children’s mother.
Animals don’t bomb buildings and gun down innocent youngsters because they want to market their political ideas.
Only humans do this shit.
I mourn the death of a cat or a rabbit over the death of most humans. I mourn certain individuals… but humans in general? Not a chance. Especially if the animals die at the hands of humans for reasons other than food or self-defense… especially if the reason is nothing more than senseless “fun.”
An abortion clinic worker with a special heritage is called upon to save the existence of humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loophole and re-enter Heaven.
I am gonna watch this movie. It makes fun of the Catholic Church, and it has George Carlin cast as a cardinal.
George Carlin and his hilarious take on death.
Damn, I miss this old fucker.
Bombing brown people again, ‘merica?
America prays for God to destroy our enemies. Our enemies pray for God to destroy us. Somebody’s gonna be disappointed! Somebody’s wasting their fucking time!
If they said to me, “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you, God?” I’d say, “Yeah! I’ll tell you about as much truth as the people who wrote that fucking Bible! How do you like that, huh?
