George Carlin's final words to the world

Postby dedanna1029 » 02 Aug 2010, 15:30

Absolutely brilliant. It's a must-see, and so true. If you notice, it was banned from youtube.

Edited: First link fixed now.

George Carlin. Comedian (but not in this instance). Click it up and watch - you won't regret it. Oh crap, it wants you to login to Facebook to view. I'll find another link for it then. Fixed. ^^

OK thanks! What really shocks me is that youtube have cencored it. What happened to freedom of speech - surely an important part of the American dream?

If you want to disagree you have to be able to hear it first.

That I think is the point. The government doesn't want anyone hearing it.

So much for freedom of speech.

Well in this case it was youtube - lets hope no government was involved. It says that the sound has been removed for copyright reasons - I would have thought that Carlin has the copyright to his own words.

Well, he's just died recently for one, but still, that's neither here nor there (or shouldn't be anyway). According to the facebook posting of the video, youtube removed it for our government. Yeah, raise your eyebrows.

Gee. Wondering what would happen if I posted it to my site...

You would get hit by a patent troll who has bought and patented the words of Carling :mrgreen:

Kind of what I'm counting on. :mrgreen:
I mean, I'm in the fight of my life anyway just for pure survival. Might as well fight off numbnuts too.

Edit: Here you go. I'm trying to get it to play back in the browser. Probably will have to convert it for that.

Spread the link around will ya? If I convert it I'll send that link, too.

He was pretty extreme though. I think it is prejudice to say that every wealthy person is a cock sucker. The American dream is that everybody has the opportunity to be one :mrgreen:

wouldn't be funny to talk a bout these subjects if you're not a bit extreme. imo
