I agree with George Carlin. I'm a 'Bad American' are you?

GOD BLESS BAD AMERICANS

YES, I'M A BAD AMERICAN by George Carlin

I Am Your Worst Nightmare. I am a BAD American. I am George Carlin.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some mid
level
governmental functionary.

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 entitle you to anything.

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

I think fireworks should be legal on the 4th of July.

I think that being a student doesn't give you any more
enlightenment than working at Blockbuster. In fact, if your parents
are
footing the bill to put your pansy self through 4 years plus of
college,
you haven't begun to be enlightened.

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 arguing about
it. I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, So, shut up already.

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 tail 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.

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.

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

If crime fighters fight crime, and firefighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they? -George Carlin.

I thought he was a comedian.

Most of these are neither funny, nor insightful, nor enlightening. Most of them are pointing at some political stance that's lost because he's not being specific enough.

"I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to."??? Who's denying this right in America? Does he mean pray out loud at the workplace? Pray in class? Have the 10 Commandments displayed at some government building? What're you trying to say George?

Meh...

DaveC-
I just found out too.


What's really peculiar is that I got a short edited version of the one that posted on his website in my email account.
That's the one I posted here.

I agree w/alot of the idea's posted in the (shorter) fictious email, not about the guns though.
Don't own a gun, don't want to.

I'm going to ask the Mod's to shut this puppy down.

Sorry for the erroneous source/author of this email.
It was done unintentionally.

Sincerely,
db9
