George Carlin Talks About Abortion

I don't know if this has been posted already, but seems timely. Hard to get around the logic.

1. And then there's the line

“Have you ever noticed that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn’t want to f*** in the first place? There’s such balance in nature.”

2. One of the things I like about George Carlin....

.... Is that he just lays it on the line.

3. First time I saw him on Johnny Carson a century ago


I fell in love with his quirky mind.
And I made sure my kids knew who he was when they were old enough to appreciate his thinking.

we were so lucky to have him with us for as long as we did.

4. I agree with you 100%

You're absolutely right. We were lucky to have him for as long as we did, but, what he left us with was a treasure trove of humor that we can pluck from the airwaves for almost any situation that arises, such as this video on abortion. His rare sense of humor is in a sense, timeless.

6. The one that has stayed in my brain is his take on the climate problem.


He basically said, don't worry about the planet, it will fine.
WE won't, but Earth will.

"Mother Nature is gonna shake us off like a bunch of bad fleas, and go right on existing."

I felt wonderfully centered after hearing that.

8. It reminded me a video I watched....

Sometime back about what would happen if Humanity disappeared from the Earth, and sure enough it was projected that Mother Nature wood reclaim everything, and it would be as if Humanity never existed.

10. What I am curious about....

....is what happens beyond extinction. My curiosity led me to this Google Search which provides several different scenarios, a few of which are pretty fascinating.

5. That could be my personal favorite George Carlin rant ever...

...and so relevant now that it literally hurts (laughing).

7. I know

When I ran across the video yesterday morning while surfing my FLV player videos, my first thought was this video had relevancy today. I was not disappointed. Funny as hell, but sadly, so much truth.
