Thought for the Day – June 24, 2008

Rest in Peace, George Carlin – George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008). You will be missed. Another one gone…

Recalling George Bush’s ranting about how the endless “war on terror” is a battle for freedom, Carlin echoed James Madison’s thinking with a simple question: “Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?”

From George Carlin, American Radical, By John Nichols, TheNation.com. Posted June 23, 2008.
