Default Bad American

Not sure if this is a re-post, but damn he has some good points so I decided it should be posted...

I Am Your Worst Nightmare.

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitl e you to anything.

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, try to do it in English.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and whoever canceled Jerry Springer.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I didn't wander forty years in the desert after getting chased out of Egypt. I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already.
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA.

I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson practices, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry rear if you're running from them..

I also think they have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good..... and I'm proud that "God" is written on my money. I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guil t me into making "donations" to their cause. These people should be targets.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

And what is going on with gas prices... again?
I believe "illegal" is illegal no matter what the politicians think.
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA!

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

I don't know George Carlin's material enough to know if he did or did not say these things. I personally don't wake up or lay down next to him each night before I go to bed, nor do I talk to him on the phone once a week or even once a year. You must, to be able to "guarantee" he does not say things like that :tonka:

Snopes.com is your friend!

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/carlin.asp




Origins: Just about any unsourced list of witty observations about our politics and social mores gets credited to humorist George Carlin these days, even when it doesn't really sound like anything he would write. Carlin may sometimes use the format of stringing together a few dozen pithy comments about a wide variety of topical subjects, but the tone of his humor is nothing like this reactionary piece. If any doubt remained, Carlin himself swept it away by announcing on his web site that he is not the author of the
article.

If not Carlin, then who did write it? This piece has also been credited to a number of decidedly conservative, outspoken media figures, such as rock star Ted Nugent, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, and actor-comedian Denis Leary, but the even if the article may seem to echo the political opinions of these men, it doesn't quite match any of them, nor does the language used sound quite right for any of these figures. (Leary, like Carlin, has been credited with creating some other Internet favorites, such as a vituperative discourse on e-mail chain letters and the "Are You Man Enough?" essay.

The essay quoted at the head of this page appeared in the FreeRepublic.com on-line forum back in September 2000 under the title "I Am a Bad Republican" (picking up title changes and additions since then as it was forwarded around the Internet), and the person who posted it there has taken credit for it in a another message in that same forum, stating that he wrote it in response to list sent to him by a Democrat friend about how to be a "good Republican."

Wow, easy, slow down, take a breath.

I'm not a George Carlin follower either.

Even though he can be a very funny guy, he is a whiney liberal. And he bases allot of his act on it.

You need to know me better to know my smarta** humor. :tonka:
No worries, I'll put you through a simple bootcamp! Not attacking you with my comment...just harassing you! Although you gotta admit it would be interesting to wake up next to him to see what he is like in the morning

I'm just a fan of people who speak the obvious and don't sugar coat their feelings that's all.

I remember one of the lines in one of his skits being, "fuck the children" That doesn't seem very liberal :)

And a good way to tell that wasn't him is that, "Fuck" wasn't used 14 times.

I fixed it. I took Carlin's name off it, since I really don't care who said it or "claims" to have said it.
