He was a man who pushed the boundaries of good taste, he told the truth and told it in a way that made evident he cared about the world. He was a good man who took a hard look at the world he lived in and decided that he didn’t like it. It needs to change. That was his conclusion.
And Mine. And a great many other people. He changed the way a lot of people looked at the world, and asked us to do something simple. To think for ourselves, to never take the word of big powerful entities at face value. George Carlin is dead and that SUCKS!

Today’s Nuggets, Via Wikiquote By George Carlin: “Happens to be.” “He happens to be black.” Like it’s a fucking accident, you know. He happens to be black? Yes, he happens to be black. Ah, yes, yes, yes. He had two black parents? Oh, yes, that’s right, two black parents. And they fucked? Oh, indeed they did. So where does the surprise part come in? I would think it would be more unusual if he just “happened” to be Scandinavian!
Now here’s another example of overprotection. Did you ever notice on the TV news, every time some guy with an AK-47 strolls onto a schoolyard and kills three or four kids and a couple of teachers, the next day, the next day, the school is overrun with counselors and psychiatrists and grief counselors and trauma therapists trying to help the children cope? Shit, when I was in school, someone came to our school and killed three or four of us, we went right on with our arithmetic. 35 classmates minus 4 equals 31. We were tough. We were tough.
And Edwin Meese alone has been investigated by three separate Special Prosecutors, and there’s a fourth one waiting for him in Washington right now. Three separate Special Prosecutors have had to look into the activies of the Attorney General. And the Attorney General is the nation’s leading law enforcement officer!
