I used to listen to his radio show Loveline when he was on with Dr Drew Pinsky.

Carolla is an intresting character

I find it interesting how more “hollywood-liberal” types are now starting to wake up.

Great Rant!! Beck was just playing it....and Adam is spot on!

Oh, I’m not sure Carolla was ever a Hollywood Liberal.
Former co host of The Man Show, with Jimmy Kimmel, and worked for years and still does time to time as a building contractor. An independent, and very funny.

They’ve been called WEINERS! Maybe all have hearing deficiencies caused by too much iPod time.

Corolla is funny. Best bit he did on Man Show was Ask Mr. Hardware.

He would insult the hardware store customers.

Language is way over the top, but if you can weed thru all the profanity, there is a lot of truth to what he says.

It is a good rant. I noted at the end that he talked about (paraphrasing here) one envious failed culture that can’t live right alongside another culture that’s successful - so the envious, failed culture tries to destroy what the successful culture has made. The female co-host called it sibling rivalry. This sounds like Islam and the West.

The Mellenial Generation is a product of the Self Esteem Movement of the 70s and 80s. Adam Carolla is correct.

I heard the edited version.

He describes the OWS crowd, exactly. A psychologist couldn't have done any better...except that he might point out that the Left is generally “projecting”....

Adam Carolla Thinks OWS Is Driven by Millennials
I agree 100% and I've said it 1000 times here on FR.
They're the generation that was taught that answering "5" to the question "what's 2+2" was okay ...
... and every player in any sporting event was given a winner's trophy.
Amazing how many turned out to be losers after all. NOT.

In the summer, I listen to his podcasts when out on the tractor cutting grass. Pretty good show. I’m suprised SiriusXM hasn’t picked him up.

Nice to hear people saying it like it is, especially people out of Hollywood.

I just don`t understand why some people have to use the F-bomb all the time to make a point.

Have to agree. If he could clean it up, this is a message that really needs to be heard, he’s nailed it.

I think he has a point. That wearethe99percent website is overflowing with people who, upon making their first encounter with adversity, went into a complete crack-up.

His radio show has flashes of brilliance. Several years ago, they did a blindingly funny riff on the meaning of the lyrics in Sammy Johns’ “Chevy Van”.

The thing I never could understand, why did Kimmel get the job? It should have been Carolla. Gotta like karma and how bad Sarah Silverslut f’d over Kimmel...

Whoa he has nailed the Millenials to the church door. The Defective-And-You-Can't-Return-Them-For-Your-Money-Back Generation.
"Self-entitled pricks who think the world owes them a living...snow globe of a life...where there's no losers...you get out into the real world...there's no more participation trophies. .... They haven't been prepared for life...the real world doesn't give an f...now, your plan is to come back and throw a brick at my window -- that's your plan, that's what's going on. It's this envy and shame and there's going to be a lot more of it..."

He was great, along with Jimmy Kimmel, on "The Man Show." I miss that show.

Each time someone utters the words “social justice” in the context of OWS, I respond with “everybody gets a trophy!”

Adam’s got a bad mouth. I can stand a little of this, but what really got to me is the woman, whoever she is, putting up with this kind of language. No self respect on her part. Had to leave well before the end.

Sometimes profanity is quite appropriate when identifying and/or discussing the profane.
