George Carlin ~ The American Dream

George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 — June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor, and writer/author who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his “Seven Dirty Words” comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government’s power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves.

The American Dream Lost

The first of his 14 stand-up comedy specials for HBO was filmed in 1977. From the late 1980s, Carlin’s routines focused on socio-cultural criticism of modern American society. He often commented on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture. His final HBO special, It’s Bad for Ya, was filmed less than four months before his death. In 2004, Carlin placed second on the Comedy Central list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians of all time, ahead of Lenny Bruce and behind Richard Pryor. He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and hosted the first episode of Saturday Night Live. In 2008, he was posthumously awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

The Best of George Carlin: Exposing our government and fall of humanity

WAR IS OVER! I Declare World Peace!

WAR IS OVER;  I Declare World Peace

“I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.”
Mohandas Gandhi

“And once we have the condition of peace and joy in us, we can afford to be in any situation. Even in the situation of hell, we will be able to contribute our peace and serenity. The most important thing is for each of us to have some freedom in our heart, some stability in our heart, some peace in our heart. Only then will we be able to relieve the suffering around us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Ted Kennedy Attacks GOP and Big Business on Greed!

Suicide rate is up for 99 weekers (those who have been dropped from the system who aren’t even counted in statistics anymore) who can’t find work, food or housing…  Joe Biden today said this would not happen on his watch… the Whitehouse needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

When will the greed stop and our leadership get back to doing the peoples business and not be owned by big business!!!
