L P : "You have owners, they own you!" [Property of HBO appears on screen]. 2:10

Polish Hammer : They are coming for Social security next. George nailed it

packleader87 : I came back to listen to Carlin to get my hate back. I'm too nice to people

Bacon Maken : I like how everyone laughed along and agreed with Carlin when he said all of this and now we have Bernie Sanders trying to actually do something about it and everyone calls him "idealistic" and claims that he "doesn't understand economics."

Paco Val : hearing this again after many years, I now realize how prophetic this monologue is...

Hache Rodriguez : The worst thing about Trump being president, is that George Carlin is not alive to joke about it hehe

ThunderInTheSun : He is dearly missed. One of the most, if not the most, intelligent comedians ever.

CantolaoTV : Rest in peace are a real American hero


kris c : George most definitely was a man ahead of his time

Merel : All this time, he was right

ANDY MOTL : 7 people that dislike this are exactly what he's talking about.

Viewsk8 : "Property of HBO" pops up as he says we don't own anything.

TheSauljohn27 : Just as the Roman Empire fell, So will America one day. . .

Evan Demon : This needs a "I'm Bernie Sanders and I approve of this message" afterwards

Sara Sherwani : for the American dream.. you'll have to be asleep to believe it.... omg my heart

Meira McMahon : Franklin D. Roosevelt who said, ‘Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to chose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy therefore, is education,’

Joe McIlnen : One of the greatest speeches of all time.

Brian Hansen : so brilliant true and tragic at once

Na'xia Xi'Larn : Is this guy one of the last honest american politicans? He makes sense :-)

racewiththefalcons1 : This has never been more relevant.

kal jan : His words are message not comedy .

Anthony Newman : I really don't like his language but I love the truth. Buy the truth and sell it not. That's what God's Word says. Truth is worth it ... Can be very painful however you cannot have justice honor without it there is no freedom no Liberty American Way

K. De Metter : It's scary how old footage this footage is, and how relevant it still is today.

CHAD FLOYD TV : I love you George Carlin! RIP buddy! You inspire me to be a socialist every day as I watch this. You and Bernie Sanders are the only ones who care!

Joseph Stephan : This one is for ALL the politicians & And the people who vote for them. Time to wake up. It's a selection not a election , if Obama don't finish us off, they will put Clinton or Bush in to do the job.

Cool Breeze : the greatest comedy finish ever...this is the only thing you can "mic drop" on in our day and age...a truer statement has never been said set aside your ego....and understand what is being done to you you are not that smart....they out spend you out think you, out pray you, and out evil you... you never had a chance america...wake up before that option is removed also

J PP : Probably more relevant now than then. Divisiveness is another control mechanism. You hear it from the corporate media and the political class daily. If we're fighting each other, we don't have time to notice the puppet strings. Read the comments, serfs are doing their bidding.

OakTree Brannon : R.I.P. my Hero.

GREATWHITE2 : Notice how the applause starts up later and later during Mr. Carlin's routine?! The people in the audience are thinking deeply about what he is saying...

lisvender : It's funny. I agree with a lot of things Carlin says. I know our government outsources, lies, and tortures, but it also has a serious problem with Donald Trump. The government and media have scrambled everyone they can to discredit him, and it isn't working. I wonder if there's something to that. I don't give two shits about the guy, and I think he'd be a woeful president, but I kinda want him to win just to see the Ferris wheel go off its hinges, and then watch how far it rolls.

Hans Goede : God old George, sure miss him!

John Henderson : America is one big lie and you're a fool for believing it.

Sharist Hoola : No true words have ever been spoken.

supafuckinmingster : Probably the greatest 5mins on the interweb machine. This has to be the 40th time I've watched this.

Boogie ManBK : Lets wake up ppl & stop being distracted

Leonardo La Torre : It's not funny anymore... Welcome TPP.

PayinAttention : I have to laugh at everyone here yammering about Bolshevik Bernie, as if he isn't a part of the system Carlin describes. Karl Marx was bankrolled by the Rothschilds. Leon Trotsky got $$$ from Wall Street to start the Bolshevik Revolution w/Lenin. You've bought a pig in a poke, folks.

Tom DeVito : George is an American hero he speaks the truth

Mr. GoodKat : Truth after truth, after truth.

Aliosha Castro : The comedian version of Sanders. And if you think is Trump the solution, then you are sleeping, believing in the american dream

soypablo64 : This never gets old -- can listen to it again and again -- good points to remember.

magic : And now this country is full of adult children and arrogant trolls that don't help at all.

Connor : We need him more then ever

Native Atheist : What happened to the american dream? It came're looking at it........


Dominique Roy : Truth

SomedayGamin : Funny that he is spot-on to this day

Mr. GoodKat : "it's called the american dream because you have to asleep to believe it."
