George Carlin 1937-2008

The world is less funny today. It's less quirky, less intelligent, less radical, less profane, less a lot of things, that it really, REALLY needs to be!

The reason is because the incredible, irreverent, inimitable George Carlin passed away yesterday from heart failure at the age of 71, after complaining of chest pains.

Seven words you can't say on television? Shit, piss fuck, suck, cock sucker, mother fucker, and tits? Fuck yea I'll say 'em! Damned straight, I'll say 'em! George took the case all the way to the fucking Supreme Court so I can say 'em!! In fact I think I'll just go out in the street and say 'em all day! I'll walk up to strangers on the street, shake their hands, and say "Shit, piss, fuck, suck, cock sucker, mother fucker, and tits!" and walk away! I'll just walk the fuck away, and leave them standing their with that look on their faces that defies explanation! I will do these things, and George would flat out dig it!

Nobody ever made me laugh and think quite like George Carlin, and the world will be a sadder, and dumber place without him!

RIP George!

As the writer John O'Hara wrote seventy-one years ago this week when he learned of the death of his friend, George Gershwin, so can be said (with only slight re-wording for George Carlin.

George Carlin is dead. But I don't have to believe it if I don't want to.

Nice going, Stoney!

All the best,
Tom Degan

George Carlin, and George Gershwin were both one of the the voices of their age.

As long as their works are remembered, they will never really die!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm trying to teach the American Public that there is another point of view out there, beside the Right Wing's This country's on a greased chute to Hell with Bush as it's Captain! I for one will not sit idley by while he drives the land that I love into the ground! This is my gift to this country. Maybe it's a little crude at times, maybe, it's a little rude at times! But in my world, rude and crude works! I'll post what I damn well please here and invite people to post comments the same way! Rant all you want!! I do! Freedom of Speech is the order of the day here! Like it? Let me know! Don't like it? Let me know! Silence me? AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! So welcome one and all to STONEY'S RAGE!! It's all for America!
