Who would have thought George would say this.....


I truly believe that George Carlin is an extremely insightful man and has always tried to open people's minds with his comedy, his wife had recently died when he sat down and wrote this.

A Message by George Carlin: The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology canbring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones,because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most o f all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
If you don't send this to at least 8 people....Who cares

I didn't think George Carlin would say this. Check his web site http://www.georgecarlin.com/home/dontblame.html

Dennis,

A friend of mine just called and said he got a letter from a lawyer about a class action lawsuit against Woodie's CCI Club. It has something to do with the donations to Make A Wish he said.

He did not want to be involved so the lawyer told him to send back the letter so he did.

I would like to get a copy of that letter so we can maybe publish it for people who are interested in persuing the lawsuit.

Do you know who is behind this letter? I would like to shake his hand. lol

Sport said...

Yea, call your friend back and ask him who the attorney was. Have him check his cell phone account for incoming calls.......

Of course, your friend will remember who the attorney is since he had to address the envelope....RIGHT?????

And I doubt that any lawyer would say, Well....John just send the letter back to me so my office can spend time opening it and shreading it.

Me thinks your "friend" is drinkin to much of that white lighting..maybe he should switch to red wine like TonyUK.

TonyUK will never be in those tights again after gaining 40-50 pouunds drinking all that red wine, no wonder he and his wife have to fly first class over the pond for charity benefits...I mean trade a longs....no that's not right either...they are called Workshops now because there is no live trading.....no is there TonyUK.

One sales pitch after another and even one on one private trading at $150.00 an hour....nice say??

My friend is an old dude, so his memory is not the best. He just taped the envelope and put "return to sender on it". He did not want to get involved.

I did ask him to check on the phone number thing you suggested. See if he can find it.

He was not involved in Woodie's Room except to download the Esignal platform...not sure how they even got his address? He did make one donation to Make a Wish for $100.

I was awaiting the identity of Judas. George Carlin? I would have never guessed him.

On a ligher note, it's been 45 years or so since I found myself staring at a screen in the afternoon where the main character was always looking over his shoulder for the Park Ranger. You haven't snatched any pic-a-nic baskets from the Park guests have you? Besides, the Park Rangers know they can find you at the Pancake Pantry anytime they need to. You are indeed "smarter than the average bear".. LOL

ROTFL........ok time for a reality check.

Some this old guy who is your friend gets an envelope, opens it, reads the inside and of accoding to you, tapes it backup and sends it back to the attorney.

But, I guess the real questions is why would your old friend go and download anything off a site IF he didn't have an interest in the first place. The best would only grow from sitting there all day listening and read the log and thinking this was the greatest thing since peanut butter met chocolate after the game under the breachers.

Just glad your old friend was able to donate something to the kids...that is more then Woodie has ever done.

I would call your old friend and tell him to take more naps during the day....it's good for the brain power.....

But if you ever find the name of attorney let us know....but you do check this blog alot.....:)

Wonder WHY????

On Friday, it seems that the National Park Service got a call about someone hunting in the park just off the bypass. Five rangers showed up running around this area of the mountain looking for anyone that was hunting.

Which lead a couple of them coming onto our property and going down over the side, so to speak.

They found a deer that had been shot and died. The ranger then called for more backup and removed the deer.

Today they have a suspect and should have an arrest sometime this week.

So Friday was an exciting day around these parts, we are viewing the security dvds to see if anything shows up there.

My junior trader is taking a nap so I have some time to blog.....hehe

Hi Dennis,

I asked everyone I know and their brother, and no one has received a snail mail about any lawsuit. Or any email for that matter.

My friend tried to retrieve it from the postman, but it had gone already. And no log of the call since it was outgoing on a land line.

What we could not figure is how they got his home address to send the letter. That is the most puzzling part. And why no one contacted me about it. I am pretty dang easy to find. Like you I tend to write in blogs.

Funny how this just came out of the blue.

Sport said...

ROTFL.....I can see this "OLD" friend running down the streets trying to catch the postman two days after HE taped it up and dropped in the mailbox...going ...STOP STOP I need to have that letter so we can find the attroney name so I can post it in a blog so people can help me get my money back from that bastard.....
Yea yea....I can see that...RIGHT!!

Myabe your "old" friend actually stole it out of your mail box since you didn't get a letter, after all you are one of the foot soldiers...RIGHT???

An Army of loser going around, I lost my money, I followed this guy right into Bahh, bahh, bahhh....

Bob and Cathy said...

The joke of all this is he never was in the room except twice to listen to me. He never used CCI, was just curious enough to download it from Esignal to take a look because I used it and at the time I thought it was wonderful. He never lost one cent due to woodie unlike me. ROFLMAO

Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Woodie going on before.
Ken, the royal Master, leads against the foe; forward into battle see his banners go!

Refrain: Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, with the zero line cross going on before.

At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee; on then, trading soldiers, on to profitabitlity!
Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise; brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise Woodie just entered the room.

Refrain: Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, there will be better trades down the road, just like before.

Like a mighty CCI army moves the market; brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod. We are not divided, all one body we, one in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Refrain: Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, hold your candle high as we did before.

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, but the CCI constantly will remain.
Gates of hell can never gainst that WoodieCCIClub prevail; we have Woodies own promise, and that cannot fail.

Refrain: Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, all is forgiven and we as we were before.

Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng, blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor unto Dude of Wood this through countless ages men and angels sing.

Refrain: Onward, trading soldiers, marching as to war, with your account a lot smaller then it was before.

YOu need to work on your 'creative ideas' capabilities. This was an excellent start.

The mind is a terrible thing to waist. :)
