I note that as George Carlin gets older he gets more and more angry. He’s not so much about comedy anymore but about educating his audience.
This video is prime evidence of that. If you hadn’t put two and two together yet, government in the U.S. is no longer beholden to the people, it is beholden to large corporations. What other purpose did you think Political Action Committees (PAC) served? It was a back door for business to buy off our elected representatives.
Right now I’m reading the book titled Internal Combustion by Edwin Black. Most interesting about the games played and I can now see that the corporate takeover of government got its start in the early part of the 19th century, and was cemented in place by the time of the U.S. Civil War.
This is why I’d love to amend the 14th amendment to the Constitution. Just twelve words, “None of the rights granted by this amendment shall apply to corporations.”

Apparently a Bentonville, AR man is distraught that his teenage sons found a book on lesbian sex on a library shelf.
It goes beyond ridiculous though. The libraries advisory board voting to remove the book from circulation smacks of censorship. These people ought to be branded with a great big “I” for Ignorant.
Put it this way, when I was a teen anything with sexuality in it was a titillating find. What is more astounding is that the father in this case has less maturity than his sons. He should be branded with a huge “A” for ASSHOLE!
NBC puts its more objectionable stuff on the web December 17, 2006Posted by truthspew in censorship, FCC, NBC, objectionable material, YouTube.

Ok – so NBC understands that you can’t broadcast this but if you put it on YouTube it’s all right.
The reason it’s ok to do this is because one has to actively decide to watch on the web, whereas on TV well, just anyone might come across such trash. You see the nonsense of that, don’t you? I mean there are a couple hundred TV channels. If you don’t like it, you have to the choice to actively flip away from it or shut the damned box off.
Anyhow, pretty funny song from the SNL crew titled “My Dick in a Box”.
