George Carlin – The Prophet

Oh how I miss George Carlin. Yes he was mainly known as a stand up comedian, but he was more than that, much more. He was a social critic, he challenged that status quo, he dared to go where society wasn’t prepared to go: Look at ourselves critically. He did it with biting humor, masterful oration and a directness digging into core truths that were not only uncomfortable at times, but needed to be heard and said.

His voice has fallen silent as he passed away a few years ago and I’m sorry to say: We don’t have anyone like George today. I didn’t agree with everything George said and I don’t need to, nor does anybody else, but his talent was to make us think and to view the world with a different perspective and yes he was a prophet.

He saw long ago where this was all heading. The political charades and manufactured dramas that are sold to the public as choice, the illusion of choice as the agendas have long been in play.

“What do they want?” he asked.

“More for themselves and less for everybody else.”

He spoke of the owners of this country, the owners that control everything, the media, what to believe what to think, and the great business and lobbying interests that spend billions of dollars lobbying for ever more benefits for themselves.

And lobby they do:

And boy did they succeed. Under the mantle of populism and draining the swamp they got themselves the biggest tax cuts in corporate history, a historic killing:

Wall Street celebrated and celebrates to this day.

Wealth inequality skyrocketing for years and now trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see and debt through the roof:

“But now they’re coming for your social security money” George prophesied.

“So they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And sooner or later they’ll get it all”.

After all after Act I is complete here comes Act 2:

    GOD BLESS YOU J.B. YOU ARE EVER SOOOOOOO RIGHT ABOUT G.C. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYONE LIKE HIM, BECAUSE NO ONE HAS THE BALLS TO SAY WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING. THE ONLY ONE, HAND PICKED BY GOD IS DONALD TRUMP. NO ONE IS PERFECT, BUT HE IS THE BEST PRESIDENT WE HAVE EVER HAD. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE DEVIL WORKING AGAINST GOD. BUT GOD WILL RULE IN THE END AND THE DEVIL WILL SUFFER FOREVER. WE ALL NEED TO READ THE BIBLE AND BOOKS, THAT TELL US WHAT LIFE WILL BE LIKE. 1984, ANIMAL FARM, FAHRENHEIT 451 AND BOOKS BY MICHAEL SAVAGE. I ALSO LOVE YOU. I ALSO KNOW THAT GEORGE NOORY WAS EXTREMELY JEALOUS OF YOU. WHEN I HEARD YOU ON THE RADIO, I WAS HOOKED. WHEN I DID NOT HEAR YOU ANYMORE, I WAS DEVASTATED. THANK GOD I GOT YOU NOW. WE NEED TO GET RID OF THE COMMUNISTS, BEFORE THEY GET RID OF ALL OF US. AMEN.
