PAUL'S RECOMMENDATION
George Carlin's "Napalm & Silly Putty"
Highest Recomm

Excerpts below
 

                                        "On Angels"

            "What is all this nonsense about angels? Do you realize that three out of four Americans now believe in angels? What are they, fuckin' stupid? Has everyone lost their goddamn minds?
               Angels, my ass! You know what I think it is? I think it's a massive, collective, chemical flashback from all the drugs--all the drugs!--smoked, swallowed, snorted, and shot up by all  Americans from 1960 to 2000. Forty years of adulterated street drugs will get you some fuckin' angels, my friend!
             Angels, shit. What about goblins? Doesn't anyone believe in goblins? And zombies. Where the fuck are all the zombies? That's the trouble with zombies, they're unreliable. I say that if you're gonna buy  that angel bullshit, you may as well go for the goblin-zombie package as well."

        [reminds me that a recent survey found that about 32% of the American public still thought that the sun revolves around the Earth...]
                   ...and 100 Americans die each year from swallowing ball-point pens...PK]

                                      Carlin #2, for the day:

                                        This classic >>>

                                     Bullshit From The Sky

            "But folks, I have to tell you, in the bullshit department, a business man can't hold a candle to a clergyman. Because when it comes to bullshit. Big-time, major-league bullshit. You have to stand in awe--in awe!--of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims:  religion. No contest.
               Religion--easily--has the Greatest Bullshit Story Ever Told! Think about it: religion has actually convinced people--many of them adults--that there's an invisible man who lives in the sky and watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And who has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do.
              And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to remain and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry, forever and ever, till the end of time. But he loves you!
             He loves you, and he needs money! He always needs money. He's all-powerful, all-perfect,  all-knowing, and all-wise, but somehow...he just can't handle money. Religion takes billions of dollars, pays no taxes, and somehow always needs a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy shit!"

  and to paraphrase Napoleon himself: "Religion is used, quite artfully, by the upper classes, to keep the peasantry
from killing them
