Your laser like wit will be sorely missed, why with all these clowns "running" our country the material would write itself!
I seriously wish he were still around so I could hear his input on the past couple of years. Id get a hell of a laugh outta that.
May Joe Pesci bless you, George Carlin.
It's too bad he couldn't get over himself.
“Hey, here’s another place we can build low-cost housing. Cemeteries! There’s another idea who’s time has passed. Saving all the dead people in one part of town? What kind of a superstitious religious medieval bullshit idea is that?”
Atheists love him though. He's a perfect example of what liberty isn't. Ridiculing faith and private property?
And people try and hold him up as something worth respect in the liberty movement? The only people who respect George Carlin are Godless foul mouthed people who get off on the idea of housing the poor in cemeteries. (which is the underlying joke)
Wisdom from comedians is like wisdom from religion. Some people get it, some don't and we are never absolutely certain how the messenger/deliverer meant it!
I don't believe Carlin was "godless" at all. I believe he was RELIGION-less, for sure. "God" is an abstract almost. The definition of God varies...immensely...from person to person.
"The only people who respect George Carlin are Godless foul mouthed people who get off on the idea of housing the poor in cemeteries." I guess assuming and conjecture of groups of people, and individuals, you don't even know is a Liberty ideal? He was making a JOKE! It was meant to be humorous, and maybe thought-provoking. I am not foul-mouthed, and I am NOT Godless, but I respect George Carlin immensely. So, your accusation/assumption is wrong in my case.
I tried to read a biography on him, and it was too much for me to read through his constant abrasive outlook on every single aspect of his life described with abundant profanities--like he was performing instead of reflecting. So I ditched the book.
But like a broken clock that is at least right twice a day, Carlin can eloquently skewer the hypocrisy of our government like no one else.
