Witness the staggering number of blue-collar workers who just put an elite billionaire -- who used to "hang concrete and pour sheetrock" -- in the White House, because they believed him to be a 'man of the people'.

These ain't George Carlin quotes, I think.

But I just think. That does not mean I know sh*t about anything real.

Naw, they his Shy Don't know if he came up with them, himself, but I'm fairly certain he did.

They come from his HBO Special: Complaints and Grievances. I think one of his last stand-ups, if not THE last.

George's humor did take a decided turn towards the violent, in his later years. Laugh out load

Or they remember how non capitalist system looked like. Or they don't consider capitalism to be some kind of plague. Or left failed them so now they feel that right winger using populist language serves them better.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Not quite sure what to make of that cryptic statement. Consider

I have no idea what the US-american people are brain-washed about, in order to vote for Trump. But one thing I do know, if they would have voted for Hillary, it wouldn't be any better. It just would have been a different kinda sh*t they have to endure..

If they're in the US I don't think they remember what non capitalism looks like. We do remember things like the carpetbaggers, the great depression and the great recession though which were just the logical conclusions to unfettered capitalism. We keep arguing for it anyway, not because it works as a solid societal foundation , but because filthy rich bastards want to be even filthier.

I doubt there's anyone born in the US old enough to remember that.

Quote:Or they don't consider capitalism to be some kind of plague.

More likely -- demonstrably, in fact -- most don't understand how the system works, and so tend not to see when it is stacked against them.

Quote:Or left failed them so now they feel that right winger using populist language serves them better.

The latter half of that statement doubtless has some truth to it. The former part, not so much, since there has never been any "left" in power in this country to offer a comparison.

Well, that explains why I don't value Carlin as much as I do others, who are considered as being in the same league of...you name it.

It basically means, I never laughted about a Carlin joke, like never ever. That's a subjective, utterly personal, fact.

I'm sorry.
