What a terrible loss to humanity when Carlin died.

Carlin is one of my heroes.   If only we could get that flicker of a flame to flare and burn bright.

I've always thought he gave up on life in his old age. In his late sixties, he became a bitter old ranting fuckwit, a whinging idiot. One line of his which I despise: "I always hope things get worse for humans, no matter how bad the disaster", or something to that extent. This is a filthy idea. He hates humanity and he wants its demise. Some hero!

I too always considered him a despicable human being. The only person worse, George Galloway.

I know some people don’t like his attitude... but he is a cynic, and you know what, for all the negativity, there is a lot of truth to what he said and he was not afraid to say it, and for that I respect him.  Also I agree with him, we are all humans, we are all freaks, and we are all fracked. Have a nice day. ^_^

I agree with him!  Some people have seen the horrors of humanity and what we are capable of doing.  We are products of evolution but we are so self contradictory it's frustrating!!!  Sometimes when i feel so powerless and pessimistic about humans i indulge in imagining our extinction before take all other life forms with us.
