I don't agree with everything George Carlin has to say, but this was an interesting post that a fellow debater posted on our region's forum.

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 be it Democratic or Republican!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

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, do it in English.

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 watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already.

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA.

I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry rear 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.

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good..... and I'm proud that "God" is written on my money.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making "donations" to their cause.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

And what is going on with gas prices... again?

I believe "illegal" is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA!

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

Gee, I must be a bad amarican too. Better than being a good soviet....

By the way, the link to my site on your sidebar is busted. Just thought you might want to know.

Allegra said...

Yup, I know...fix the link to my site and I'll fix the link to your site. Deal? :P

Good bad American! :)

While those statements generally are true, they are slightly dogmatic. I like the gun one though. Guns are generally just awesome.

Speaking of links - which of your blogs should I link to, Allegra? Or should I just link to both of them?

Allegra said...

Totally. Guns rock. Wow, I wish I had my own. Dad has a .38 that I really love, but it is his...

Y'know, if someone were to come onto this blog, they would think we were dangerous criminals, the way we talk about guns. :)

Ummm...if you're going to link to just one blog, I'd prefer Amateur Journalism, just because Eloquent Journalism is really just my rants. Or you can do both. I don't really care. But thanks for asking!

Mark Watson said...

I'd rather just leave the link how it is now; I'm too lazy to change it. Thanks for linking to my blog, by the way. I appreciate it :).

* Homeland security breaks down my front door and arrests me on suspicions of illegal gun activity *

Guns are awesome. and for the record guns dont kill people, People kill people. Im the weapon my gun is a tool.

I like my guns, I shoot snowmen on occasion.

Mark Watson said...

Of course the same is true of nuclear bombs and chemical weapons, Josh. They don't kill, people kill. I guess it's all risk assessment.

WebN8 said...

This.... Is my BOOM STICK!!! :-P

Yeah, you need to get a boom stick. Putting holes in stuff is fun. I would recomend a .30 06 Mwa ha ha ha!!

*Nice men in white coats come to take me away

Allegra said...

LOL--a .30 06 might be nice, but I need something to stow away in my purse...maybe a .357? I love ours...

Yes, I believe "nice" men in blue coats (a.k.a. policemen) SHOULD come take you away, you evil U.S. citizen. :P

[pretends to know what what I am talking about]
You should definitely get a Beretta...
[/pretends to know what what I am talking about]

I've never actually shot a gun. *is sad* I need to do it sometime... Nate? :P

Allegra said...

Beretta...hmm...

Yes, you need to shoot a gun. It's very important. :)
