Adam Carolla Breaks Down Occupy Movement: ‘******* Self-Entitled Monsters’
The Blaze ^ | 11-30-11 | Tiffany Gabbay

Some people have a way of breaking down an issue, laying it out in its simplest, most rudimentary form. Comic and podcaster Adam Carolla did just that recently when he unleashed what many conservatives will hail an acerbic yet painfully accurate debunking of the Occupy movement and its self-ascribed motivations. The nearly ten minute long lampooning of America’s new “******g self-entitled monsters“ who ”think the world owes them a living” is peppered with very strong language, still, Carolla’s observations are worth listening through to the end.

Among the many highlights in Carolla’s rant, he asks why the top “1 percent” of America paying 50 percent of all income taxes in the country is not good enough for the Occupiers. He also observes how “envy” never before existed among Americans the way it does now, and that it, along with “shame” plays a crucial role in the Occupiers’ motivation and self-justification.

Reflecting on how things used to be “back in the day,” Carolla states:

“You took guys who built something, and you said ‘there’s a guy who accomplished something.‘ You didn’t say, ‘that guy didn’t pay his fair share.’ That guy paid millions of dollars last year, and you paid s*** and you’re pissed at him?”

Excerpted, read more here

Beck is making one without the language to put on the site as well, but the language does add expression. LOL!

Well worth listening too. Very nice of him to translate our feelings into their language so they might understand something...anything.

All the media had to do to see the exact same things Adam just said WAY before he said them was to come here. Even still, I applaud him for saying these things.

I saw this coming back in the 1980’s. Notably the purple or green or yellow participation badges and ribbons. The “We’re All Winners” mentality was rampant back in schools back then. Twenty-five years later these kids are squatting all across the country demanding they have everything the millionaires have.

...and where did the children learn to be 'self-entitled ass-dou***s..?

Public schools.

I STILL see people on relocation/real estate forums all a-twitter about how 'good' the public schools are in such and such an area...get real. They ALL suck.

Come on, America. This CAN be fixed. Homeschooling, private schools, vouchers; whatever. Public schools are NOT getting it done...period.

(Don't worry, parents...this is only a problem at 'other' schools...I'm sure YOUR school is just awesome.) Educators...please don't waste time with PM telling me to 'go fornicate myself'...you're only proving my point. :-)

When you get shamed, there's two things you can do with shame- you can be shamed and say, "I'd better get my sh$t together", or you can be shamed and go "I'm gonna tear that guy's sh$t down". And that's where we're at now. When you feel that shame, get your sh$t together and leave my sh$t alone.

Awesome.

Great point...I have noticed that the liberal elite of New England have difficulty expressing themselves unless they interject the 'f' word into every sentence.

Funny how I RARELY (if ever) heard the 'f' word when living among the 'gun-clinging Bible thumpers' down south. Go figure.

I listen to Carolla’s regular podcast every weekday and his “ACE on the House” home repair podcast every weekend. Love the man. He’s smart and fearless. http://www.adamcarolla.com/

CEO GOES NUCLEAR ON OBAMA (in an open letter to him)
By Gerri Willis, Fox Business
http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/12/01/ceo-goes-nuclear-obama

[snip]

The BOTTOM LINE:

[[[[ NOTE: He is ECHOING what I wrote here back in August 2011: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2764303/posts?page=12#12 ]]]]

“....To frame the debate as one of rich-and-entitled versus poor-and-dispossessed is to both miss the point and further inflame an already incendiary environment.

It is also a naked, political pander to some of the basest human emotions - a strategy, as history teaches, that never ends well for anyone but totalitarians and anarchists.

With due respect, Mr. President, it’s time for you to throttle-down the partisan rhetoric and appeal to people’s better instincts, not their worst.

Rather than assume that the wealthy are a monolithic, selfish and unfeeling lot who must be subjugated by the force of the state, set a tone that encourages people of good will to meet in the middle.

When you were a community organizer in Chicago, you learned the art of waging a guerilla campaign against a far superior force. But you’ve graduated from that milieu and now help to set the agenda for that superior force. You might do well at this point to eschew the polarizing vernacular of political militancy....”

OMG. Adam Carolla can leave one completely speechless, as in..there’s just nothing left to say. I have heard many of his podcasts on many topics and he is more often than not absolutely SPOT ON. Certainly NOT for the prim and proper and easily offended, however. I absolutely love alot of what he has to say!

“With due respect, Mr. President, it’s time for you to throttle-down the partisan rhetoric and appeal to people’s better instincts, not their worst.”

His entire career as a community organizer runs contrary to this. He went into the poor communities and told people to tell him what the government could do for them.

He nails it SO perfectly. A friend of mine recently told me that the OWS people were protesting the bad stuff that everyone knows is going on and that they were like those folks over in Egypt and Libya, etc.. I thought, “How could you have let your mind become so infected?” On the one hand, that’s a crock that they represent some noble, truth-seeking, justice-yearning flower of mankind. On the other hand, I think most of those guys “protesting” overseas are basically the same load of envious, whining, examples of a—douchery that Carolla is talking about that make up OWS.

I deal with a lot of tradesmen in my line of work and this is usually how things are said. To the point with expletives.

A number of years ago Carolla had a house flipping show on TV. The best part of the show was when he went out to buy a new Astin Martin. He went into what it took to buy it and how hard he works to live like he does. He also went into all the years he spent doing construction work and trying to break into showbiz. Adam is a self made man and the total opposite of these parasites. He is really one of the plumber or electrician types I run into and has the common sense that most of us out here have. Screw PC.

These Americans have lost their cultural meaning and the meaning of life through a purposful effort of cultural cleansing by globalists and socialists.

Our society either plants American inspiration, constitutional ideology and Western morals and ethics into the hearts and idenity of our people or there is a void of nothingness that is filled with darkness like materialism, jealously, cruelity, rage and hate. These are not people who can be self governing; they are people made for control under a police state.

Funny how I RARELY (if ever) heard the 'f' word when living among the 'gun-clinging Bible thumpers' down south. Go figure.

Here in SW Pennsylvania we get exposed to both cultures plus a little of the midwest for variety.

My theory is that the New England elites have to say it because they don't get to do it. The rest of us (midwesterners and southern rednecks alike) actually get to do it and raise our kids to be useful adults rather than aborting them or raising entitlement brats.

The Adam Carolla Show Sets World Record For Most Downloaded Podcast

Guinness World Records has confirmed that The Adam Carolla Show has officially broken the record for the Most Downloaded Podcast, receiving 59,574,843 unique downloads from March 2009 to March 16, 2011.

Carolla made the announcement on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

This breaks the previous record held by The Ricky Gervais Show, set in February 2006. The Ricky Gervais Show had an average of 261,670 downloads per episode in its first month (December 2005) and had exceeded 4.5 million downloads, or an average of 379,382 downloads per episode, by the end of its final week

This really is a big deal, A big push back to the MSM over-hyped, over coverage of a rather small group of Occupy protesters.(compared to tea party). It also reaches into Obama's youth base of voters.
