George Carlin has been dead for eight years but his black comedy lives on indefinitely:
…The real owners: the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. Politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t.
You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations that long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, the City Halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the of the news and information you get to hear.
…They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want: They want more for themselves and less for everybody else.
But, I’ll tell you what they don’t want: they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. And, now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back so they can give it their criminal friends on Wall Street. And, you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later because they own this fucking place.
It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club…

Mark twain ( who in his prime was close to the movers and shakers) said ” if voting worked, they wouldn’t let you do it”
Thanks for that, Norm. It seems like two or three guys like him come along every generation or so. Carlin, Lenny Bruce, and Bill Hicks come to mind over the last 40 years, but I can’t think of any since who are worthy of being put in their league. It’s fascinating how we prefer to ingest our truth.
