Always worth a watch. I tell my unemployed friend all the time that it's not his fault, "the game is rigged."
And, all the people think he's a comedian. Wait until they find out the truth.
This was an excellent clip and so very true!
Carlin was raised a Catholic but his parents broke up, when he was only 2 months old. It doesn't appear he had any relationship with his father, but he had a difficult relationship with his mother, according to Wikipedia.
I do know he entered into a Catholic hospital the day he died. I know he was a professed atheist, but I do hope and pray he made amends prior to dying on the day, truly.
He would laugh at that LOL...
He professed a hearty schadenfreude in watching the rich spectrum of humanity slowly self-destruct, in his estimation, of its own design, saying, "When you're born, you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front-row seat."
Four days before his death, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts had named Carlin its 2008 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor honoree. The prize was awarded in Washington, D.C. on November 10, making Carlin the first posthumous recipient.
I actually tead "the first postHUMOROUS recipient" :-S
Carlin is great. Miss him. :)
on these forums? It should only fall on deaf ears.
Doesn't it seem like a lot of people on the dailypaul are so invested in the system itself, that they cannot imagine life without it? The nationalist game is the only game in town for these people. They want their man in the White House.
So they say Rand 2016.
Forget that noise. Let's throw off our owners and stop pretending that we can reform the empire.
So I say secession.
This was always good and yet sad and true.
I can watch Carlin all day long.
Thanks for posting.

Go back to sleep
carlin ever made me laugh. he just wasn't a funny man to me.
i've always thought if it weren't for the latter years, only people in the industry, privy to its history, would really remember him.
but something happened and he just stopped trying to make people laugh and just said, "fuck it, i'm just going to tell them the truth."
and THAT is what made him so great. to me, at least.
George was never one to pay any attention to the politically correct crap, he told it like it was.
The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
Notice how the idiots in the audience laugh at what he is saying? Morons! I can't help but wonder if he didn't have help dying. He seemed healthy to me but that's what happens to anyone telling the truth isn't it? I am surprised Ron Paul is still kicking. Hope he keeps telling the truth for years to come!
the best jokes are the ones that ring true. George Carlin was hilarious and eye opening to me as a kid.
