George Carlin once said, "We buy stuff we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like.

George Carlin once said, "We buy stuff we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like.
The above quote by Carlin perfectly matches what's going on today in our country, its the story of American capitalism today.

It amazes me that people will buy a new car every 4 years, whats crazy is not that long ago, our parents drove their cars until the car was completely & thoroughly finished, the weird part is, cars in that era were not made that well, although you could work on them.

I'm speaking mostly of the 70s. So our parents just made do. Today, cars are light years ahead of the older cars, if you just change the oil regularly, its easy to get 200,000 or even much higher mileage out of them, so what do we do now that cars are so well built cars are so well built that they will last a very long time? WE trade them every 4 years to get a new car!
Be strong, be of good courage, God bless America & long live the republic. .

Why would you get your wisdom from that man?

In that quote he falsely accuses millions by painting with a broad brush.

George Carlin bothers you?

It’s called social commentary.

He’s dead on.

You are quite right and brave for declaring this social issue, as most people are totally oblivious to it.

I find it nauseating how Joe Normal parades his idiotic ego on four wheels. These ugly and artless modern cars I hate and the fools who think that they express themselves satisfactorily by driving in them takes me another step away from my fellow man.

It might be okay in the USA but in Britain,where I live, the roads are small and now every moron needs to own a big SUV. Just one person with a small brain driving about in their own stupid world.
I will go further than you and declare that the people you are alluding to are utter and total pricks.

George Carlin did nothing for a living. But prop his useless self up.

Boomer hero.
