"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." -- Voltaire
What Carlin says bears repeating:
"And nobody seems to notice, and nobody seems to care. That's what the owners count on; the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white, and blue dick that's being jammed up their assholes every day."
"In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first."
