    George Carlin lays it out better than anyone “Its a big club and you aint in it”

    They call this “the American Dream because you have to be sleeping to believe it” and its true. Most people have no idea what the oligarchy has pulled off while they were waving a flag and eating hot dogs on the 4th July and in wonderment over the sales at the mall while sending soldiers into imaginary war zones to protect the mineral rights.

    Took my son to see Carlin in Vegas shortly before his death.

    He didn’t miss a line in two solid hours, and was amazingly funny.

    You may not always agree with his viewpoint, but this artist will always remain one of the greats of American humor.

    His talent is not to be replicated by mere mortals.
