Who Really Controls America

MySpaceTV: George Carlin - Who Really Controls America by Rick

Warning, it's George at his best (or worst) so the language is not for the meek.

I love George Carlin as well. Do you remember one of his famous albums of the seventies where he describes possible names for birth control pills?: Preg-NOT and inCONCEIVABLE. I know it sounds corny from me, but it's very funny when put into his comedic context.

I also am a big fan of his. But that video, and a couple of recordings I have of his, hint at his dark side. That is, he's got a very angry, somewhat paranoid dark side.

I wonder if George is the one who came up with "Build a man on fire and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life..."
