I think after 13 years in this forum the old timers have come to the same conclusion. While some battle the party lines to the bitter end insulting one another the reality is it's all BS.

Carlin sums it up in 3:15 seconds. You can spend your days wasting time telling others they are wrong, working for someone else, working for the owners, or get your **** together.

The notion that it's better in other countries Mexico is even more absurd.

There is an amazing amount of opportunity in America if you take what Carlin has to heart. We won't be part of the club but you can ride the same trends the big boys do but you have to be aware of them.
How in the seven hells do you get the above from (loosely quoted):

"They (the real owners) gotcha by the balls .. they want more for themselves and less for everyone else .. they don't want people smart enough to to figure out how badly they're getting ****ed by the system that through them over 30 years ago ... they'll get it all .. it's a big club, and you ain't in it.

It's called the American dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it."

You do have any clue what the significance of the "30 years ago" comment means?

And here is the full text quote from that rant, from when I posted it over a year ago. In the context of the discussion, that's much closer to Carlin's original intent.
Quote:
There's a reason for this, there's a reason education sucks, and it's the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better. Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've got... because the owners of this country donít want that. I'm talking about the real owners now... the real owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You donít. 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. Theyíve 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 of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but Iíll tell you what they donít want. They donít want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They donít want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. Theyíre not interested in that. That doesnít help them. Thatís against their interests. Thatís right. They donít want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly theyíre getting ****ed by a system that threw them overboard 30 ****iní years ago. They donít want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly ****tier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now theyíre coming for your Social Security money. They want your ****in' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? Theyíll get it. Theyíll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this ****in' place. Itís a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, itís the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesnít matter what color shirt you have on. Good, honest, hard-working people continue ó these are people of modest means ó continue to elect these rich **********s who donít give a **** about them. They donít give a **** about you. They donít give a **** about you. They donít care about you at all! At all! At all! And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Thatís what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thatís being jammed up their a-holes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. Itís called the American Dream, 'cause you have to be asleep to believe it.

Russia basically is playing 5 card draw with two Aces on the draw.

We're holding a 2, 4, 8, 5 and jack=Jack ****.


I'm fine with it really. Russia can flex it's muscle in the middle east. Let them. It hasn't done us any good the last 15 years or more. If israel doesn't like it they can take on russia!
russia isn't holding ****. they never did hold anything.
congress never took a stand & obama never back down but you being a perfect example of this opinions are like a-holes.

Congress didn't do anything, they didn't even have a vote. They could have, but they didn't because they didn't want to air that dirty laundry in the midterms. Now everyone can say they were right.

Can't have it both ways.

The liberals claim to be for tolerance and open-mindedness, but reality is they like it when only surrounded by their ilk. They like a world where dissent is silenced(not theirs of course) and those are threatened to keep differing opinions quiet. Many people around here, including me, don't spend as much time around here since the level of liberal circle jerk is pathetic and nothing new. The same routine day after day, with no originality. "Oh, it's so quiet and peaceful." Yeah, because most people find you boring
