Phuck Politics - There are a lot of us who miss him. I know I really do.

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Thanks, Grandpa. That's the best laugh I've had in a long while - a perfect lead-in to my vacation starting tomorrow.

Grandpa Eddie said...

jeg43 - I'm glad ya got a good laugh outta George.

You have yourself a fantastic vacation. Relax and enjoy yourself. We'll all be here when you get back.

David Aquarius said...

Thanks Ed....I needed that. A little laughter is good today.

Got the news that as of Sat., my work is cutting us back to 35 hrs a week and suspending all raises and bonuses... for hourly workers only. Don't you just love corporations? Not like I can get all upset and quit over it.

They know we can't do shit about it, we're the most vulnerable and the easiest to shit on.

Grandpa Eddie said...

David - I am sooo glad that helped!

I am so sorry to hear about your hours being cut, and the suspending all raises and bonuses. Of course they're not going to do that to the salaried employees. If they did that they wouldn't be able to reward themselves for saving the company money by not giving the hourly workers raises and bonuses.

Like you said, they've got all of you over a barrel.

count me among the perennial mourners. he spoke as closely to my sentiments in my words as anybody in the public eye EVER did...

In the universe of labor economics, that has a name: "worker discipline." Fancy phrase for "we got'em by the short and curlies."

You are also learning why you never learned about Marx and Engels in school...

Grandpa Eddie said...

Woody - I think there's a lot of us who can be counted as perennial mourners. I know I'm one.

As for your Marx and Engels comment...there's a lot of truth to that.

George Carlin and Bill Hicks. Two intellectual comedy giants who are missed immensely.

Grandpa Eddie said...

ZIRGAR - Damn I had forgotten about Bill. I'll have to start posting some of his stuff, too.

I feel bad about forgetting Bill. Thanks for reminding me, pal.
