My apologies for the cussword in a post title, but there was no other way to summarize this one. I've got my favorite George Carlin clips - I'd never seen him or heard an album (I guess it'd have been an album, right) in his heyday - but I knew the baseball vs. football routine and more recently the "Save the Bees" bit.
This one is new to me. I can't find a date for it on the internet, but Mr. Carlin looks fairly old there, so maybe mid-00's? (He died in '08.) Mr. Carlin did a great take here on helicopter parenting, which can turn out lots of young adult snowflakes. To think this was at least a decade and a half ago - things have not gotten better in this regard.
I noted that Mr. Carlin said a little bit about the big deal about getting the kids into the best kindergartens. That's mostly just a NY City (maybe San Francisco or LA) thing. I wonder if Steve Sailer has seen this, as he is very into the struggles of the upper middle class to get their young ones into the best schools, from kindergarten and up to the Ivy Leagues. I get neither the bug struggle nor the fixation of Mr. Sailer's with the whole thing. Let the elite do their thing. Beat 'em, don't join 'em.
Hey, and if you want to learn a little Spanish, here's a start.
I've got some more anecdotal Kung Flu stupidity coming, but other than that, I think Peak Stupidity will lay low until 2022.
