3. "We've got the only national anthem that mentions rockets and bombs in the damn thing"
Yeah, it's unlikely we in this country will ever be at peace.

14. Error at 2:40 -- John Hinckley Jr. is not a "free man"
Not in George Carlin's monologue, but in the video text.

John Hinckley Jr. is locked up in a psychiatric institution. That's not "free".

16. Incredibly perceptive.
Edited on Sat Nov-19-11 07:27 AM by Enthusiast
I watched that many years ago.

I remember being so angry at the rhetoric coming from the "moral majority". They were such obvious hypocrites. But they had the wool pulled over the eyes of millions of gullible Americans.

Not a damned thing has changed. Well, not for the better anyway.

30. They don't even pretend today. Remember Reagan Administration
had a "trial" - pfft. today? Why bother - unless it's a blow job then the moral majority must take action... :eyes:

Sadly too many "Dems" behave this way too now. No they aren't just as bad as each other granted - think I'm getting cynical!
Cheers
Sandy

29. He'd love OWS. If only he could still be here, with Molly.
We have to do it for them.

31. Yes - after she passed his heart was broken. I have always, always
adored Carlin. I was buying his records at 14yrs old <40 now> and playing them repeatedly. Love his Vietnam stuff. Noticed a very heavy "who gives a fuck" vibe from him on what I believe was his last HBO special - the stage had tombstones on it. After 45yrs of biting, poignant comedy - there was a distinct vibe and he had certainly earned the right!

Cheers
Sandy
