As usual, George hits the nail on the head. Judging by the silence on here, most people are asleep on here too.The endless pratter about politics proves that very few people actually understand what George says about politicians not giving a damn about the citizens. They only cater to our masters and owners. I wish I knew what the majic bullet is that would wake people up from their stupor.
Sadly, George Carlin is simply no longer relevant. He is too old to matter to the young, and they DON"T listen to him or to others of his age group.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
But George is also wrong. I am one of those that came up from the depth of poverty. I grew up in a horribly abusive home (you name the abuse, and 1 or more of us suffered it). I went to 16 different schools, in 4 different states, before being forced to drop out of school in the middle of the 11th grade. I joined the Army at the age of 16, and spent 10 years on active duty. I only left because my wife left me with two daughters, and they were a LOT more important to me than my career.
I was a single parent for years. I managed to put myself through College, earn two Masters degrees, enter a profession, and later earn my Doctorate. I also managed to not have to have everything the neighbors owned, saved my money, and managed to have a fully paid for home by the age of 55.
My daughters both earned advanced degrees. One is a physician in the US Army, and the other is a Civil Engineer. I have 3 grandsons that I adore.
I retired at 62, moved to Kentucky where I bought a beautiful 3,400 sq. foot home on 3 acres (fully paid for), bought a motorhome and began taking flying lessons.
