The American Dream

Yesterday would have marked George Carlin's seventy-fourth birthday.

For anyone who doesn't already know, George was known for his mixture of observational humor with larger social commentary, one of my goals with this blog. I've always admired George's honest and cynical comedic talent, mostly because his views on humanity were right on the mark, and because they closely mirrored my own.

Here's to you George for pointing out the bullshit and telling it like it is.

  1. Now that we're about to attack Syria and enter into another political-military conflict, can anyone point out just one thing that our Nobel Peace Prize winning, former constitutional law professor, and "liberal" democratic President has really done that truly serves the interests of the 99% of everyday Americans like you and me? Can you name one campaign promise that he's fully kept?

    Do you still trust in partisan politics, and that politicians don't work on behalf of their corporate supervisors? Do you still believe in the illusion of politics and the American dream? I'm listening.

    In the meantime, while I await your opinions, let's see what our good friend Bill Moyers has to say about the state of our democracy.
