Today’s post is a small tribute to George Carlin. I’m assuming that you know who he is. In the unlikely event that you don’t know, google him, go to youtube to see some of his videos and if you still have spare time, then come back here.
I still sometimes watch or think stuff he has said over time and get a smile/grin in my face. I miss him and can’t stop wondering what he’d have to say about the recent economic crisis – at least we have youtube. So here are some of my favorite George Carlin quotes, for me to always remember and you to enjoy 🙂
.: Think of how stupid the average person is… and realize that half of them are stupider than that :.
.: Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist :.
.: …rights aren’t “rights” if someone can take ’em away; they’re privileges :.
.: Some people see things that are and ask, Why?
Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not?
Some people have to go to work and don’t have time for all that :.
.: …it’s also interesting who it is we assassinate… 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, MedgarEvers, Malcolm X, John Lennon. They all said, try to live together peacefully’. BAM! Right in thefucking head :.
.: You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country?
The upper class keeps all of the money, pays all of the taxes.
The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work.
The poor are there… just to scare the shit out of the middle class. Keep ’em showing up at those jobs :.
.: Just ’cause you got the monkey off your back doesn’t mean the circus has left town :.
.: A person of good intelligence and of sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality – and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of thing – it is a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street :.
.: Boy those conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. But once you’re born you’re on your own.
Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No, nothing.
No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food-stamps, no welfare, no nothing.
If you’re a pre-born you’re fine, if you’re pre-school you’re fucked :.
