"Who Owns America?" - George Carlin

I've had a love/hate relationship with Goerge Carlin over the years. A lot of his humor was off-color and at odds with my beliefs. However, I've appreciated his political commentary. He told it like he saw it, and was often right on target.

"Who Owns You?" is one of his most perceptive pieces. In fact, I'd say the more you disagree with his political commentary, the more of a "blue pill" person you are.

Until we wake up and cut through the spin and bromides that keep most of us ignorant and apathetic about today's political realities, our country will continue to go down the drain.

"This Country is Finished" is an interview with Keith Olbermann last year. You can find plenty more on YouTube. Be warned some of his language is off-color, and he doesn't have kind things to say about Christianity, but don't let that keep you from seeing whatever is truth in what he says.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get out a more substantial post. There's a lot going on, and it ain't pretty!
