I'm a baby-boomer. I knew there was something seriously wrong with us when I was a teenager. If we can just get through the age of boomer rule I think we'll be OK. From Bill to Bush to Obama(somewhat boomer) to Romney to Hillary it's all boomer. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

Your link did not work but I found this one:

One thing though ( nitpicking I suppose ) - I guess that I would have gone with Baby Boomers who went corpoRAT.

Carlin never hid that he had little tolerance for individual people...but I think he had a deep love for humanity as a whole, and contributed much to warn humanity of the ruling elite and the skewed course of society. He would have loved OWS.

Can you imagine Carlin as Prez?! He certainly was smarter than any of the puppets. I can just see him now...flippin the bird to TPTB : )

Miss you George.

He was too fuckin funny. RIP George.

Classic.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

He didn't vote.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Whatever. Everyone should vote! Voting should be mandatory for all citizens! This is what the 1% plutocrats fear the most. Just look at the despicable 40 state repub attempt to suppress dem votes.

Repubs have said for decades they benefit when turnout is low!

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

He didn't vote so he must be on the side of the repubs, right?

[-] 1 points by TheRazor (-329) 1 year ago

Well he hated tattoos and piercings

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

You think he was on the side of republicans?

[-] 1 points by TheRazor (-329) 1 year ago

I would guess not. I just remember him saying if you wanted a decent life, job, career,dont get all tatted or pierced, you wont be taken serious.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Why would say such a ridiculous thing.? Did you know George Carlin?

He criticized both parties but was in no way a republican. He may not have been a registered Democrat (I do not know) but he was definitely a progressive.

You should listen to some of his interviews & albums before you say such nonsense.

George Carlin Doesn't vote;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIraCchPDhk

Nice try VQ but sorry....

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

He's dead Steve. Of course he doesn't vote.

Did you mean to repeat that "he didn't vote"? Why? Why are you repeating yourself?

We can discuss voting, but what Carlin did is not the measure for me Sorry.

[-] 0 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

I'm a Carlinite and I say voting can be highly overrated much of the time.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

"carlinite"? Is that some make believe comedy political party. LoL

But Seriously

Carlin was one of my favs, Loved his political humor. That doesn't change the reality that repubs have been suppressing the dem vote & have admitted they need to keep turnout low.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

Carlin started OWS. You didn't get the memo?

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

LOL

Long dead.

Sorry. I would suggest maybe from the afterlife but I'm an atheist (like him I think, (but not BECAUSE of him))

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

I'm down with atheism but Carlin's ghost has serious mojo.

If only!

[-] 1 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

No offense, but what do you do for a living? You seem to post here an awful lot.

[-] -3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

My personal life is not relevant. If you want to discuss an important issue that affects the 99% I'm willing to listen, but too many people come here to personally attack people, socialize, & behave like middle school clicks.

Are you asking about my personal life so you can attack me?

Why didn't you offer your own personal career info.?

I ain't askin you (or anyone) for their personal info. Because my arguments don't require personal attacks, & I don't come here to socialize. This ain't facebook!

I'll keep my comments to important issues and keep then honest, civil, & truthful.

Try it! It's life affirming.

[-] 2 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

You post all the time and you always say the same thing over and over and over. I'm thinking shut in.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

So even without the personal info you fish for you manage some insulting personal attack.?

Predictable, immature, meaningless.

I assume you and your friends gang up on me because my honest civil facts are too much for you to engage with truth and respect.

It shows your weakness, and low quality.

Poor form, bad karma.

LMFAO

[-] 0 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

Paranoid shut in.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Meaningless, personal insults, reflecting you inability to argue real issues honestly, respectfully, & with facts.

Smoked your sorry ass!

Consider yourself dispatched & dismissed. LMFAO

[-] 1 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

I will. Can i borrow your cone of shame? The one you earned while posting 24 hours a day

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Nope. You cannot!

Issat the best you can do.?

Nothing! Meaningless! Only negativity!!

I've beaten you like an old Salvation Army drum.

Give up while you have a shred of decency left.

[-] 1 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

I'll give up if you go post in the Debate Time thread. You're being called out and bad mouthed over there. You're not scared, are you?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

You don't have to give up. You can continue embarrassing yourself with these meaningless, immature, insults. I do not care.

Who is callin me out? If they were they wouldsend me a message. More likely they are maligning me behind my back likethe schoolyard cowards they seem to emulate.

More meaninglessness.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

Hey i was the one i ask to debate you said were all to scared to debate you so here i am ready to debate i even asked the first question you can ask the second

http://occupywallst.org/forum/vq-lets-go/

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Scared of what? I never said I was scared! That's you lying! You must realize that if you lie about someone you lose credibility right?

Anyway I answered your question already. You didn't respond. Why not?

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

So you're elf didnt know

if it was in you're post then you would post in it fine. Start one and i will play by your rules except for one.

I think all facts should be backed by sources

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

i am not elf, do not really know elf. Just like Carlin.

I will NOT start a new post 'cause you wish it! if you choose to you may find one of my old posts add an honest, respectful, comment that is based in facts and I may answer you.

In regardsto your rules: I reject any rules you suggest, because you have only been dishonest and abusive. I will discuss as I always have, honestly, respectfully, based on facts. My comments/opinions do not require back up/proof.

Sorry. And you have no credibility with me so any "back up" you might offer will not be considered honest.

And if you choose to resort to the immature, useless insults you usually do, that is your choice. I will handle that as always.

Peace, Good luck in all your good efforts

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Please make sense. I do not understand you comment.

(that's not my rule that's just common sense.)

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

why not i want to talk about valuable things and you said you wanted to debate so i set up the stage lets go lets debate lets talk things over and see if we can get progress

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I do not want to go on your post 'cause you wish it!

I much rather boost the Carlin post.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

They seem fair to me and fair to others but why not to you

to add i said no slander and a use of sources when called upon seems realistic

like i stated before ill respond when you post in that post

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I won't respond in your post!

[-] 0 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

no you said we are scared to debate you so i said ok and am ready to debate you

i ask you to respond there if you will. I will not respond to it outside of the post.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I will respond where I please. Why would I submit to your debate dictates?

You've only been dishonest and abusive!

I responded, you did not!

Why?

[-] 0 points by freakzilla (-161) from Detroit, MI 1 year ago

Fine. If you don't want to post there, that's your right. I'm gonna get some lunch. I'm craving chicken for some reason

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Enjoy it.

Peace, Good luck in all your good efforts.
