Correction: What George Carlin Didn't Say on New Orleans Hurricane Rules...

If nobody else wants this one, I'll take it. JC...
”Been sitting here with my ass in a wad, wanting to speak out about the lots bullshit going on in New Orleans. For the people of New Orleans...
First we would like to say,”Sorry for your loss.” With that said, let’s go through a few hurricane rules: (Unlike an earthquake, we know it's coming)

#1. A mandatory evacuation means just that...Get the hell out. Don't blame the Government after they tell you to go. If they hadn't said anything, I can see the argument. They said get out... if you didn’t; it's your fault, not theirs. (We don't want to hear it, even if you don't have a car, you can get out.)

#2. If there is an emergency, stock up on water and non-perishables. If you didn't do this, it's not the Government's fault you're starving.

#2a. If you run out of food and water, find a store that has some. (Remember, shoes, TV's, DVD's and CD's are not edible. Leave them alone.)

#2b. If the local store has been looted of food or water, leave your neighbor's TV and stereo alone. (See #2a) They worked hard to get their stuff. Just because they were smart enough to leave during a mandatory evacuation, doesn't give you the right to take their stuff...it's theirs, not yours.

#3. If someone comes in to help you, don't shoot at them and then complain no one is helping you. I'm not getting shot to help save some dumbass who didn't leave when told to do so.

#4. If you are in your house that is completely under water, your belongings are probably too far gone for anyone to want them. If someone does want them, let them have them and hopefuly they'll die in the filth. Just leave! (It's New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a curse on them)

#5. My tax money should not pay to rebuild a 2 million dollar house, a sports stadium or a floating casino. Also, my tax money shouldn't go to rebuild a city that is under sea level. You wouldn't build your house on quicksand would you? You want to live below sea-level, do your country some good and join the Navy.

#6. Regardless of what the Poverty Pimps Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton want you to believe, The US Government didn't create the Hurricane as a way to eradicate the black people of New Orleans; (Neither did Russia as a way to destroy America). The US Government didn't cause global warming that caused the hurricane (We've been coming out of an ice age for over a million years).

#7. The government isn't responsible for giving you anything. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, but you gotta work for what you want. McDonalds and Wal-Mart are always hiring, get a damn job and stop spooning off the people who are actually working for a living.

President Kennedy said it best..."Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Jim, you've done it again. You did it to Robin Williams and now you've done it to George Carlin.

Sir, your integrity demands that you check your sources in future.

'oops'...I got it off an e-mail. Anyhow, kudos to whoever said it. I agree with it.

Who knows for sure anyhow. I wonder why anyone would credit a particular person with such as this. I can't see a motive or reason for doing that.I've seen people say things and later deny them though probably not in this case.

Thanks for the link. I'll bookmark it for future reference.

BWH: There's no honor in gloating but if you need to, don't be second. There ain't no blue ribbon for that!

Aggravating you is all the prize I need.

The motive or reason for doing that sort of thing (like this business with Carlin and Williams)) is surely to lend these statements weight, a weight they would not otherwise possess because these statements usually have some funk of meanness coming of 'em.

Actually, assuming it was Carlin wouldn't mean anything to me. I'm not a fan of his. Evidently someone else is, whoever attributed this to him in the first place.

However, after following the Katrina situation, particularly the New Orleans part, I could have written this myself and wouldn't have been ashamed of doing so.

BWH: Whatever turns your crank...

If aggravating jc is bwh's prize, I think he has won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and I'll donate a blue ribbon if he wants one. LOL
