As the "man on the street" I simply voice my concern`s, protest against injustice and stand my ground.
Oh, and btw, everybody who has posted on here, including you, is trying to act important like their viewpoint matters. George Carlin can just get on TV with it.
Let me tell you, religion is no longer the opiate of the masses. POP CULTURE is.
We will agree to anything as long as we can have our pizza delivered to our door (within 30 minutes or else we don`t pay, dammit) and our remote or video game controller in our hands.
We SHOULD be speaking out! Yes, stupid internet forums are the place to begin. They`re like the college coffee shops that our parents went to. Next, comes small lectures, talking about things that skirt around and hint at the real issues. Then come the megaphones, the protests, the FRIGGIN REVOLUTION.
OUR SYSTEM DOESN`T WORK, AND WE ARE THE ONES WHO CAN FIX IT.
I don`t ever want the novel 1984 to come true, and yet, I already see groupthink, and brainwashing...
Also, anybody saying politicians work for votes, not money, let me break it down real simple for ya:
MONEY = VOTES
You know why there`s laws making it necessary for a poor man to get some little chunk of the voters` money to run for office??? Because some honest politicians back in the day realized that the more money you have to spread your face around, and petition, and get your name out there, the more votes you ultimately get.
NO MONEY = NO VOTES
There, you idiots should get it now.
George Carlin is totally right in this speech. We are all sheep, and even enraged as I am now, I feel totally ashamed that I`m not doing more about it.
No more than a few decades ago, a mindless war broke out simply because we didn`t like another country`s economic system-
You obviously have not been watching these past, oh, ten or so years at the very least. George Bush and his WHOLE ADMINISTRATION (not just using him as the scapegoat) have SHAT all OVER the Constitution! DIdn`t you know there was a bill passed just a few months ago that completely took away your right to habeus corpus??? Yes, that means they can throw you in jail for whatever reason, and never give you a trial or even tell you what you are charged with. Gee, the French King had something like that, prior to the Revolution, called "carte blanche", and it means "GET WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT BECAUSE I CAN!"
Christ, people! The corporations aren`t the happy face of Walmart all the time! Wake up! THE MEDIA IS RUN BY A TOTAL OF ABOUT FIVE CORPORATIONS. They go where the money goes, or where the public surveys say the money will go...
As he says, it`s not going to change either, people are too complacant, too enamoured by their television set.
We`ve become decadent to such a degree that as a species, we`re no longer viable.
Humanity, bye bye.
That`s the bad part about it. People are going to keep repeating the same sh*t over and over again, but it doesn`t matter because the future generation is in a state of apathy and the older generation is too set in their ways to do a damn thing about it.
well here`s a few
And one last thing, corporations and the media are two very seperate things, don`t let anyone tell you otherwise. Not all Media is bad, but you should never use one or two sources, or just listen to sources that agree with your first belief. You are an individual, start acting like it.

Education doesn`t help either just means you can start as manager at McDonalds. :P
On another note:
Ron Paul for President! We need to go back to the Constitution.
Sorry, making a buisness successful and big doesn`t mean anyone has the right to squander the money they "earn" from people on trivial things that in fact burden our society.There`s a certain point where a person has made enough money for themselves to live comfortably as well as generations of family members, and they shouldn`t get any more money than that. The wealthy in this country make an absurd amount of completely extra income and rarely does it get put to good use.They may provide jobs, such as all the billions of jobs Walmart provides! First, walmart starts buying products from china instead of america, then all those american workers who would have had those jobs are forced into much lower-paying jobs for walmart. So yeah, they provide jobs nobody in this country can live off of. That`s hardly anything good.The government isn`t INTERVENING, it`s being
Besides, all of America will remain "willfully ignorant" because most of us are idiots. Go take a look around MySpace for a few minutes and you`ll see the future of this country.. it`s enough to make you cry.
This speach right here is all to true though
Anyway, George Carlin is the poo and I`m going to see him live October 5!
4 separate unions can (eventually) be converged into one big union.
aka world government/control
and people need to get off bush`s dick, he is really the perfect scapegoat. Bad anything? Blame bush lol
And good job to you too dingo. You hit the nail on the head. In this video they mostly lambasted conservatives, but you are right that the left controls the media and thats a huge advantage for them.
FDR passed a bill or law I think during WWII that discouraged negative press about the war. It kept heavy causalities and such out of the papers and radios. Sure it keeps people in the dark, but an army must have a line drawn somewhere between them and 300 million citizens breathing down their necks. Today`s global media destroyed that line via Vietnam. I know I`m correct in saying WWII would have been pretty unpopular if today`s media was reporting back then.
I don`t think its as bad as he says but it certainly isn`t good. Things do need to change and that`s why I`m watching Fred Thompson in 08, he looks like a perfect candidate.
north american union
It`s SOOOO bad, it could be the reason the Iraq war has lasted so long..
All of the liberal and democratic whining that has been taking place about the war for these past years, has been spawned by the media, that`s controlled by said `corporations`, (Large, greedy news corporations), who make more and more money the longer this war goes on.
And then, on the other side of the Earth, militia-men, rebels, and terrorists get morale boosts because they get to watch Western media, and every day, see talk of how bad the war is going, and how many American soldiers they`ve killed.
And by that I mean, it was all true, but the slighest bit over-exaggerated.THIS is why we need to stop supporting rich, fat, bullpooters like Hillary Clinton and all of them.The American people have gotten so sheepish and passive... and the sad part is, they don`t have to be.Every time they sit in front of the good, ol` telly, and subject themselves to commercials, the media, and other crap, they become more and more blind to what`s around them, and put more and more thought to the hottest TV show, or the newest style of clothes. I say the word "they" because it`s gotten so bad, I`m starting to declare myself independent of them.And it really is bad... I`m starting to convince myself the only way to weasel out of it is to have a goddamned revolution take place.
It`s so bad, I`m gonna have to continue this in a second post :)
