The Big T Pic of the Day

George Carlin

RIP George Carlin

One of the funniest men to ever walk the Earth is no longer with us today. Comedian George Carlin died of heart failure at St. Johns Health Center in Santa Monica, Ca. on Sunday. He was 71 years old.

One of my favorite George Carlin routines was the seven words you can’t say on TV. Do I need to tell you NOT SAFE FOR WORK? I shouldn’t, unless you have been living in a cave your whole life.

I have compiled my top 10 favorite quotes from Carlin:

“Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?”

“’I am’ is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that ‘I do’ is the longest sentence?”

“I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.”

“I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven't tried that for a while. Maybe this time it'll work.”

“I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me - they're cramming for their final exam.”

“I'm always relieved when someone is delivering a eulogy and I realize I'm listening to it.”

“I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.”

“Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.”

“Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.”

“Some people see things that are and ask, why? Some people dream of things that never were, and ask, why not? Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that.”

The Big T Idiot of the Week.

This story takes us to Canada were Marcel Perrot is on the run from police. Perrot allegedly test drove a truck from a Edmonton dealership, stopped at a bank during the test drive and robbed it to get money to buy the truck, while the car salesman waited in the truck.

Now I have heard Larry the Cable guy say “Sometimes you have to wreck the truck to get the insurance money to make the truck payment,” which I think may have been his greatest moment of genius, but robbing the bank to buy a used truck with the salesman in the truck! That is not so genius; it is just plain idiotic making this guy the Big T idiot of the week.

Big T preparing for Vacation

Not much to comment on here today. I am busy getting ready for my vacation to Phoenix and the Grand Canyon on Thursday. I have reading and viewing from around the web though.
Dick Morris says gas prices are the hot button issue in this election. Maybe, but the most important issue is the war against Islamic terrorism.
A Department of Homeland Security Inspector found FEMA still incapable of doing anything efficiently. Once Obama wins the White House these stories will disappear as if there was never a proble
European officials are worried Obama could upset allies directly talking to Iran.
When a novelist says he despises Islam…well that is grounds for an investigation for a “hate crime!”
The House passed the FISA bill on Friday that protects phone companies from lawsuits for participating in the government surveillance program. Obama and McCain both support the bill.
Barack Obama has devised a plan to crack down on oil and energy speculators and restore “common sense regulation.” I want to know who determines what common sense is? And didn’t John McCain already suggest something similar?
Here is an article explaining how you can double your income by becoming a burden on the rest of society. Isn’t wealth distribution great!
Looks like John Kerry may be in trouble of losing his senate seat in Massachusetts. His polling numbers are way down. In four years Kerry could go from presidential loser to former senator.
Time waster of the Day: Hey guys, you can thank me later for this, but did you know Sports Illustrated has 95 videos on you tube about their swimsuit issues? Very Nice!
