JustMegawatt: BS. I love George Carlin and his comedy but I've never heard these
'replacement' phrases used more than their original. For example health
maintenance organization, I've never heard that used more often than simply
'hospital' in fact I rarely hear the former at all.
thewrathofshane: Not afraid of getting old or death, believing in Jesus Christ has this side
LockNLoadTV: "Rich people" became "job creators".
Big Al: Carlin predicted tumblr this is amazing.
DameunPutazo: Carlin was a beast. Never made it it to one of his later shows, and I'm too
young to have been at his earlier ones.
While I know many do not agree on his positions (politics/religion), I
think we can all agree that his delivery was masterful.
narfle: Oh George, when will we ever see the likes of you and Bill Hicks again.
Thank you for the work the two of you did and thank you to the wonders of
technology for preserving your material for coming generations to enjoy and
Zack Zander: This guy was the best!
Brian Paone: *"Why are you so HARSH, Paone?!"*
I get asked this question far too much, and no one really likes sticking
around for the answer. Maybe George Carlin can explain it.
It's not like *I* have a freakin' problem with it. ;-)
Anthony Utter: Why I don't like euphemisms.
Kurone Shizuhi: This is just too awesome. George Carlin rocks!
Иван Мосев: Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do
freedom fighters fight?
Arjaya Mahajana: TRUTH Plain and simple. George has a way of reaching many different levels
of people. OM.
AWESOMEO: What the freak? Did he actually just compare terrorists to Israeli soldiers?
Sorry, but we kill in self defence, they blow up on our citizens.
Alex Metslov: I'm sick of this polite bullcrap and therefore I find George hilarious!
Tim Beeker: YES!!! JUST what he said!!!
Alexey Zhulin: Very actual speech... I'm very sick about this "soft language" in modern
james carwell: Carlin was the best comedian ever, just a visionary genius. I remember
seeing an interview of his where he hints at alien interaction saving us.
Theres a series of books in the UK at the moment causing a bit of a buzz
(been pushed by Dawkins) where it hints at exactly that happening - it
features a visionary, humanitarian, working-class genius politician in
carlin's mould. Just read the first book and it's genius in parts, worth
checking out, called the chronicles of hope series
Markus Beer: One goody more
Dave Taht: Newspeak gets to me. That said I could be more PC... Or just comfort myself
with someone as plain spoken as they ever came since mark twain.
Alexandre Guillaume: Excellent ! :D
Sariel Har-Peled: Unwilling sperm recipient.
George Carlin on Soft Language
Marcio Gualtieri: "Minimally Exceptional"... lol
Forfex Sceleris: As a linguist, philosopher, and intellectual terrorist I also get very very
anxious with them euphemisms.
It's the kittyfication (term coined by Carlin) of reality, life, and
society through language.
Alex Niedt: I really, really love this.

Horacio Chagas: Capo capo
Bruce Rick: #george #carlin on #softlanguage
FistsFull O Truth: Our dishonest politically correct language; built to hide the truth and
to condemn those who speak the truth.
John Dunkelburg: I don't necessarily agree with everything he says, but I entirely agree
that is you control language you control the thoughts linked to the words.
Lane Ward: look at him dan...he's 90 years young.
lebronjordan3: 5:35- 5:40- this couLd be a memorable qoutation from george carLin..

Ian Castle: An excellent bit from George Carlin
Zak Kaufman: My Bullcrap Adviser....
Luna Z.: "Bath tissue" is sometimes called "crap tickets."
I Piss On Your Grave 卍卐: 3:50 that skip was hilarious
Jürgen Schulze: wie bei uns
shadowwalker7777: Miss you so much George. Your fearlessness in saying what you mean is a
quality more of us need. (Including me... and I'm working on it. :) )
