    George Carlin (Feb 2007), click on the "show more" below the video at the youtube site and see the whole transcript:

    "...Well, we know what [the owners] want -- they want MORE for themselves and less for everybody else. ...

    ...They want OBEDIENT WORKERS. OBEDIENT WORKERS. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passably accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they're comin' for your SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY. ...

    We live in a nation where doctors destroy health; lawyers, justice; universities, knowledge; governments, freedom; the press, information; religion, morals; and our banks destroy the economy. -- Chris Hedges

      Not even the President.

      They're just angling for dinner invitations, pandering for a raise, scrambling to remain visible, or groveling to avoid dismissal.

      When 1% take 121% of the gains from "recovery", people actually recovering from lost employment are trading down on wages and benefits. Current strategies by moderates don't even consider winning the Class War.
