Even tho the man is gone from our Earth, he is still in our hearts and most importantly his message is stronger than ever.



Less rights, less liberties, less choices. You just can't argue with George's logic.

And while on George, let's include a few more for those that are either to young to have seen the man or even know of him and perhaps for those that may have missed some of his greatest...rants.


This has been posted a few times but George deserves to be posted MANY times for those that missed it the first time.



Many will always miss you George. Rest well.


Oh, just for fun:



And while we're at it. Mr. ZAPPA can't speak anything but the truth. I ran across this today and remembered it (damn I'm old)
Thought I'd edit to add.

From CNN 1986 on Copyrights. Notice how he can't be swayed from the topic at hand no matter how hard they try.




Their voices will always live as will their art through which they spoke to us. Sometimes it's the only way we can be moved because it hits a chord within all of us. Art, music, the spoken word.

It doesn't matter tho, does it? As long as their messages keep getting out there, more and more will be exposed to the truth of which they had no fear of speaking about.

The question? How did they know back then what so many are denying today but is quite clearly now a reality?

Hmmm? Answer: They knew but weren't afraid to speak out. Many know today as well but...

True heroes IMO.

Peace

It's always great to be reminded of these insightful people. Forgetting them would be a sin and dishonour.

The man just never gave up.


He spoke and millions listened. Too bad he never ran for Prez.


Peace

I put George up with the great orators of our time, the great freedom fighters of any time and one of the bravest men to ever walk a stage.

You already know Jude, he was too smart to run for Prez. In a perfect world though, would've been nice! S&F for this thread...Carlin was that dude.

A flag for the much missed Voice of Reason.
Carlin was the Man, The Philosopher of our time.

Why? He'll have more influence in the long run as he was.

Nothing would have been accomplished by becoming a useful idiot to the real power.

(ps. I know what you mean, just emphasizing that he's more influential as he was
)

He is missed, I grew up listening to him. Just about everyone of his points hits home. S&F. Your right you cannot beat his logic. One of my favorites is stuff and any rant of his about religion.

I remember seeing Carlin live at the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY around 1983ish. I laughed so much that my cheeks hurt after the show. I think I sprained my cheeks from all the damn laughing.

Ah Op, Zappa and Carlin,
You are really spoiling us!

I'd give you another star but you'd probably only;
"Ram it, ram it, ram it, ram it ...............................!"

What does a chute have to do with poop anyway?


And please don't forget the magical color of snow, the wonderment of Catholic Girls...all taking place in a little garage owned by some guy named "Joe".


Peace

I remember when Frank Zappa was addressing congress on copyrights. Wasn't that shortly before he died of prostate cancer? Yeah, I'm pretty old too!

Frank Zappa, what a Mother of Invention! I miss 'Billy the Mountain' ! I hope Frank is watching over us, and it would be nice if some of the numbskulls in the world would be as sane as he was. Rock on Frank!

I've seen both these men.Carlin was a riot and I've been to many of Franks famous Halloween shows at the Paladium theater in NYC.Besides being great artists they were astute social commentators for their(our)times.I miss them a lot.

George would make your brain turn over in it's brain pan while Frank would.....roll you over and turn you around and drive it thru the heart of town!

George Carlin was one in a million, a person who used his voice for enlightenment, not endorsement. And he denied ignorance long before ATS, and through ATS he lives on.

S & F OP.
