America now uses up most of the world's natural resources in producing shoddy products that are designed to break in order to require replacement by other crappy pieces of shit. It may be an old concept, but was never realized with such a vengeance as in the electronics industry. Worse, the junk is sold not only pre-broken, but designed to make other unrelated things break when they do: built-in collateral damage -- added waste! If your refrigerator stopped functioning and produced salmonella spores every 3 weeks, if your car needed to be replaced every year for one compatible with new roads, if your water supply cut off every time you unplugged your toaster, if your sewing machine began to sew maniacally whenever a lightbulb burned out, you'd be living in an economy based on the production of useless waste. Our "economy" runs entirely on the continuous acquisition and immediate junking purposely-pre-broken-and-collaterally-destructive unresaleable garbage made of non-renewable resources produced by slaves to be snapped up by junk addicts working 80 hours a week to pay just the interest on purchase of more of the same tawdry doodads that will instantly wind up in the trash heap. Let's face it, the economy and our lifestyle would go to hell overnight even if we just got rid of only this DESIGNED WASTE, let alone cut back on our luxuries. Microsoft would go broke instantly. When life depends on the buying and selling of germ-ridden exploding excrement sculpted to look like luxury items, there's only one more step to go, and we're just arriving there now: DON'T even bother to sculpt it! We''ll line up to buy wheelbarrows full of actual turds which we'll take directly to the sewage pit for disposal -- a time-saving convenience we'll also pay for . All jobs will be in the "shit sector" -- the collection, disease-enhancement, time-bomb imbedding, plastification and distribution of stools to the outlets. The shit we produce ourselves will be taxed and regulated so that only properly treated specimens be available for public removal. The cesspools will magically grow right along with the expanding economy. The local stinking erupting defecation dump will be hailed as a symbol of prosperity. Americans will congratulate themselves as divinely blessed because they'll have huge stockpiles of genuine, long-lasting, highest-potentcy BM that spews the farthest and fastest when it blows. The US will still be the great superpower: The Number One Number Two in the global outhouse.
I am George Carlin.
I like big cars, big hooters, and big paychecks. I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some midlevel governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give away to crack addicts squirting out babies. I'm not in touch with my feelings and I like it that way. I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang. I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer. I believe it's called the Boy Scouts for a reason. I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized. I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you'd better do it in English. I don't use the excuse "it's for the children" as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions. 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 ass through 4-7 years of college, you haven't begun to be enlightened. My heroes are John Wayne, the Simpsons, and whoever canceled Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. 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 think global warming is a big lie. Where are all those experts now, when I am freezing my ass through a long winter? 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-the-fuck-up already. I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches. And where does he get his money. And why is he always part of the problem and not the solution. I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you're running from them. I also think they have the right to pull your ass over if you are 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 of the world for the next four years. I hate those bastards standing in the intersections trying to sell me crap or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. These people should be targets. I think if you are in the passing lane, and not passing, your license should be revoked, and you should be forced to ride the bus until you promise to never delay the rest of us again. I think beef jerky could quite possibly be the perfect food. I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents. I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. I think Dr. Seuss was a genius. I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise. I believe if she has her lips on your willie, it is sex, and it is sex for both of you. This even applies when you are President of the United States. If that makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American. If you too are a BAD American please forward this to everyone you know. We need our country back.
I'm mean, what the heck. No one will get the message,
but we'll have fun in the dark for a day.
Subject: Roll Your Own Blackout

ROLL YOUR OWN BLACKOUT THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER
JUNE 21, 2001 THURS EVE, 7-10pm worldwide, all time zones
As an alternative to George W. Bush's energy policies and lack of emphasis on efficiency, conservation and alternative fuels, there will be a voluntary rolling blackout on the first day of summer, June 21 at 7pm - 10pm in any time zone (this will roll it across the planet). Its a simple protest and a symbolic act. Turn out your lights from 7pm-10pm on June 21. Unplug whatever you can unplug in your house. Light a candle, kiss and tell or not, take a stroll in the dark, invent ghost stories, anything that's not electronic -have fun in the dark. Read the 1999 book "Natural Capitalism" by Hawken and Lovins to learn that conservation/high efficiency technologies already ARE on-the-shelf. If implemented these revolutionary ideas would pay themselves off within five years, after which we'd be pumping far less greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and saving bucks to boot. Forward this email as widely as possible, to your government representatives and environmental contacts. Let them know we want global education, participation and funding in conservation, efficiency and alternative fuel efforts -- and an end to over-exploitation and misuse of the earth's resources. Anyone knows that the Cheney-Bush team is blowing smoke when they tell us that "... conservation can't help, it'll just be too expensive to implement those technologies..." While on the other hand, technology to develop and deploy weapons to blow incoming ICBMs out of the sky is easy to come by.

HONG KONG CAPITALISM:
You have 2 cows. You sell 3 of them to your publicly listedcompany,
using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank,then
you execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer sothat
you get all 4 cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping 5 cows.
The milk rights are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a
Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder
who sells the rights to all 7 cows' milk back to the listedcompany.
The annual report says that the company owns 8 cows, with an option
to purchase one more.*; Meanwhile, you kill the 2 cows because the
feng shui is bad.
Intersest payments on this sum come right off the top of incoming federal tax dollars every year.
Figure that interest rate at, oh say 7-8 percent.
Is anybody who is reading this getting any of that interest money? Is anyone that you know getting that interest money?
Hell no! It's going to all of Ronnie's personal friends, multinationals, and bankers (well isn't that convenient).
And it comes right off the top every single year, just like clockwork, an annual economic sodomy of the average American citizen.
to the rich land owners in poor third world countries
and the making the poor people suffer when the land owners
default? I hate that scam myself.
