George Carlin Predicts the Future

At YouTube …

Carlin’s American Nightmare
.

In 2005, George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) reviews the selling out of America from Reagan through Trump/Clinton:
“They want obedient workers– people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the moment you go to collect it.”

Here’s the prediction part: ” Good honest hardworking people, blue collar, white collar– doesn’t matter what color shirt you’ve got on, these are people of modest means– continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t care about you. At all. At all. At ALL.”

And don’t miss the clincher, the reason this clip is called Carlin’s “American Dream” meme-generator, and possibly the best three minutes of this singular genius’ career:

“It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.”
