    I`ve seen this so many times ... and I`ll hopefully see it many more. I`ll never tire of hearing George rant, and I`m only grateful so many of his performances were filmed before we lost him.

    What does it say about our culture that the only people who really speak the truth are comedians?

    He was totally right. Unfortunately for most, the truth is just inconvenient. Indentured servitude.

    LOL, still funny and still a negative view of who we are. George is a funny "Hippy Dippy Weatherman", but his politics are still as wrong today, as they were back when he was young and a lib. Just because he is dead, and was a multi- millionaire liberal celeb, doesn`t make him a prophet, fortune teller, or even correct.

    It was an act. RIP GC, with all due respect, your act helped me to laugh.

    The trouble with screwing over the system is that it doesn`t scew over the big corporations which control the system; ultimately the book stops at the tax payer, so it`s the tax oayers who get screwed over every time.

    Yes, the reason your education won`t be fixed is that the owners of the country don`t want it. They are of course the unions and the legacy media, along with the professional political establishment (mostly left-wing, as right-wing/libertarian politicians tend to come from successful careers into politics). The wealthy business interests have nothing to do with it. They want educated employees, who need less training and reduce tax (by being more likely to be gainfully-employed, so pay tax).

    i.e. Carlin is an idiot. Almost got it right, but actually is clueless about the incentives.

    I have become a bit of an expert in spotting who is in deep with opinion media and is completely wrapped up in partisan news. I can tell that they have randomxnp right where they want him.

    LOL intelligent people don`t make good employees, they aren`t obedient, they don`t listen to idiots, they question things, they fight for benefits, etc.

    @ piperfawn - Me? I`ve always said the the *U.S.A. and Politicians have been purchased by corporations and we lost our **Freedoms and +Liberties long, long ago. ++Washington DC business as usual.
    Do you read my posts or just look at the photos?

    Louis Black is a pale imitation of Carlin.
    Occationally, Black will make a witicism, but he doesn`t approach Carlin`s level.
    Never will.

    I love how the crowd cheers every time Carlin says how idiotic and uneducated the general public is. It`s like they`re all thinking - "He talking about everyone else- not me" NO HE`S INSULTING YOU!

    It`s like my high school exam. You have to write a composition about a certain topic that is provided. But the thing is that you can pass the exam by just writing correctly, even if you don`t write creatively or if there is no personal opinions, you can still pass. The text can be complete bullpoo, as long as you write it correctly. (Spelling and grammar)

    Randomxnp, you are an f*cking idiot as would Carlin say.
