2 I miss his honesty and sincerity. NOBODY can touch this guy, not even now. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on September 28, 2012, 11:27 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
3 "They call it the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it." Uh, but George, if you hadn't kept using drugs and marrying bimbos who took you to the cleaners, you would have made a nice little killing for yourself, and probably still did anyway. Maybe that is America's fault for not outlawing your bad decision making. I'd say that's when he lost me. Not because he was necessarily "wrong", but because he was appealing to chronic complainers when he himself was a squanderer. Speak from a position of credibility, not from the position of someone who blew it, but he was still probably worth several times the average guy when he died, all thanks to that blasted American dream that "doesn't work." Yeah, right, whatever. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 1:11 pm - (-3 votes) - Login to Vote

5 Sorry, I must dissent from everyone else. I'm sorry he's dead but I do not admire his work. I consider him to have been a significant contributor to the decline of civility in discourse that may have initially seemed 'liberating' back in the 1960's but has proven to turn even the slightest philosophical disagreements into crude,juvenile rants which no one 'wins' much less learns anything. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 9, 2011, 9:34 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I admired George Carlins comedy. His wit, honesty, and controversy, gave him a great edge. I didn't like everything in his act, but for the most part he was very enjoyable indeed. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 9, 2011, 12:50 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Did he get political at times?!? Yeah, but the thing was, he was equal oppoturnity at bashing when it came to that, and for the most part, he was straight on the point, and funny at the same time with just about anything he talked about. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 6, 2011, 6:22 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 George Carlin was a great stand up comedian. Some people can argue that he got too political in his later career, and liked to bash religion, but let's not forget that he made fun of environmentalists at least once. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 5, 2011, 11:33 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

10 "Cranky old curmudgeon" my butt. He remained one of the sharpest, most acute, and most savagely witty commentators on the sorry-arsed state of the corporate-subsidized American government/Wall Street/right-wing loonytoon-ism complex that exists today. One of his last, most scathing routines ("They Don't Care About You") should be required viewing for every young person in the country. The man pulled no punches, and deserved to wear the mantle of the late, great Bill Hicks imo. It's too bad he passed when he did; we're living in times where we could use his brand of take-no-prisoners, knife edged wit more than ever. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 15, 2010, 5:09 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 He went from one of the great observational comedians of all time to a cranky old curmudgeon. Very sad. But he was a very passable "Mr. Conductor" -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on September 8, 2010, 8:56 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote

13 I liked George Carlin's style of the 70s and early 80s, when he managed to be funny and irreverent and project a demeanor of "I'll take a swipe at anything that deserves to be made fun of," which allowed for quite a lot of possible comic material. However, in the mid-to-late 80s (I forget when exactly) he released an album that was nothing but one long conservative/religious bashing kick, and instead of being funny he came off like he was out for blood. (Instead of "I'll take a swipe at anything," his demeanor was "Killl 'em all and take no prisoners.") I'm fine with a healthy amount of humor at the expense of my own viewpoint, but that album completely left me cold. It took a LONG time for Carlin to regain any cred (in my view) as a funnyman and thought provoker, and even then, I never bought or listened to another one of his albums, nor did I buy or read any of his books. The world is a poorer place for Carlin's having left it (with one less influence to keep it on its intellectual toes), but as far as I'm concerned, the release of that album is when he boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 6, 2010, 6:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 George Carlin was very funny. He never did lose his edge. The only problem I had was that he spent too much time griping about religion. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 5, 2010, 9:43 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Carlin was good, even great, for a while. The more political he got the less relevant he became. He ended his career as one of the last 60's hippie counterculture dinosaurs to stumble on into the tar pit. He ended up being the shining example of everything wrong and hypocritical about the 60's. -- Submitted By: (BrianBuck) on July 19, 2010, 7:41 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 One of the greatest comics/social commentators of our time. His skits, especially the ones against environmentalists and the seven dirty words you can't say on TV, are legendary. Never grew soft, never lost his edge. Never, ever boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 26, 2010, 9:46 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
