"While you're watching a quiet one, a noisy one will fucking kill you." - George Carlin


u/Jdogy2002 7d ago

I love his setup for this joke in the special it was on, I still crack up when I listen to it! I’m paraphrasing here…. “They always say ‘It’s the quiet ones ya gotta watch’ Lets say you’re in a bar and there’s a guy sitting there quiet, reading the newspaper, not bothering anyone… and then some guy walks in and says ‘I’m gonna kill every motherfucker in this room!’ ….which one are you gonna watch?” Same with a joke from his airport bit… “We will now begin the pre-boarding process. What is the pre-boarding process? I get on the plane before I get on the plane? And there’s another phrase I’ve never understood, ‘Getting on the plane.’ Fuck getting ON the plane, I want to get IN the plane, let EVEL KENIEVEL get ON the plane!” Damn I miss Carlin so much! BTW if you haven’t wanted that special and you’re a standup fan, do yourself a favor. It’s top 5 for me up there with Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, and Dave Chapelles first sets. An absolute powerhouse of observational comedy!


u/ramblingnonsense 7d ago

I was fortunate enough to see Carlin live. Because, as he put it, "you know I'll tour anywhere with a zip code."

u/Galrash 8d ago

Yes but also no. I was physically abused as a kid for years and my dad was an extremely social and well liked person, progressive, and (I'm not kidding) has a career in helping troubled teens. He's a great all around guy EXCEPT for a temper that got me knocked around in private and a secret side family.

Haven't talked to him in 12 years

Yep. My dad was always the "cool dad" but behind closed doors never missed let go an opportunity to hit me for nothing.

Just the other day, some recruiter got my mother's number for some reason trying to reach me and said she was "such a sweetheart." I didn't correct this stranger because it didn't matter, but I haven't talked to that woman in a year and a half

Boebert's son made two calls - one at 6:46 p.m. and another at 6:53 p.m. - to Garfield County dispatch to detail the assault. In the second call, the teenager tried to walk back the accusations before the Colorado Congresswoman, who had been heard yelling in the background, takes the phone to say her son "doesn't need help."

Your missing one more incident, the neighbor calling the police on the Booberts son racing a RZR through the neighborhood and the husband responding then threatens and attempts to hit the mail box of the neighbor with his truck. And dispatch acting clueless as to who they are as the neighbor explains who his neighbors are.

Edit: RZR is a sport SxS that depending on model goes up to 80mph bone stock in case people have never heard of Polaris RZRs.

It reminds me of the daughter of the judge that recorded her room when her dad barged in, screamed at her and beat her steadily as she screamed out for her mother, who didn't come to help. All for downloading some songs. He got off with a slap on the wrist, and it was treated like nothing happened.

u/ClusterFoxtrot 7d ago

How can you hear your child like that and not immediately want to gnash your teeth at the source of it? I don't even know him and my first instict was "find bad thing and disembowel"

I've been that kid, too. I'm always afraid I'm as bad a mom as my mom. Then I remember when my adult 22 year old cousin was tormenting my then 7 year old, and I had the audacity to tell him to stop...well.

Fuck these monsters who perpetuate these cycles. "It happened to me, and I don't have life long traumatic scars". Stop forcing your kids to be "the bigger person" if you're an adult who thinks you have the right to treat a child like a punching bag, you don't deserve children.

Made my blood boil when reading about Conway's daughter but hearing that kid...ugh. Every bad emotion at once.


u/pickypawz 7d ago Hugz

Thank you, I won’t listen to it in that case, things are already kind of tough.


u/ClusterFoxtrot 7d ago

It's OK to skip out on hearing or watching things that can have a detrimental impact in your headspace!

Talking about it and reaffirming it's bad and wrong I'll advocate for all day, every day. Especially if you've been raised in an environment like that. There's always people who don't know to accuse them of "faking" or wanting to "get back at" their parents. I'll revictimise myself if it means saving someone else the grief.

I know you probably didn't need me pontificating at you, but I hope things get better for you!

Unfortunately, this is the exact situation I was in as a kid. Cops came to my house after a child reported abuse, and left when a grown woman told them everything was fine. Police are ill-equipped to handle domestic violence/abuse.


u/AccidentalDM 8d ago

I had a next door neighbor girl (teenager) come knock on our door one night saying her parents were abusing her. She saw me out gardening enough to figure I was the kind of person who might help at that at least a woman lived here (me).

I knew cops weren’t the best option, but I didn’t know what else to do. The cop who came out was decent enough, and mentioned that they were familiar with the neighbors because of numerous noise complaints (I hardly ever heard anything from them).

He walked her back home to talk with her parents, and that was the last I heard of it :/

I just tried to let her know that if she ever needed help again to please reach out and we’d see what we could do.


u/phoebeburgh 8d ago

Please tell me you saw her again after that.

I have called the police for child abuse only once before, and it still haunts me to this day because after the call, there were no more incidents... and I never saw the kids again, either. The parents, yes. But not the kids.

It’s really revelatory of what Republicans think of themselves: little dictators. They are so insecure that it would be sad if the implications for those under their tyranny weren’t so dire.

Let's not gloss over the fact that what makes this even crazier is they have considerable power across the country.

Lots of people unfortunately are in the situation where their unstable parents are abusive and own guns.

The kid is probably scared shitless to say or do anything lest he anger the base or step out of line with mom and dad and be harassed systemically due to their political influence.

“Family values” has long been a dogwhistle for homophobia and sexism. Before that it was also a dogwhistle for racism.

Nothing about Christ suggests he would support any of their bigotry and vitriol.

It's a way to justify them being such shitty people. They pick and choose what they like from the Bible and that's what they stand on. They ignore so much of it and they don't practice any of it. Also, after growing up around a lot of Conservative people and still being around them, it's a way for them to show off to others that they are good people because they go to church and obviously can't be bad. Except an hour after church works out they roll 20 deep into a restaurant to treat wait staff like shit and then leave a measley tip it one of those dumbass prayer cards.

Conservative rallies, among the biggest political rallies, always have the look and feel of TrashyCon. Interviews of conservative spokespersons and supporters are always among the dumbest interviews you'll find. The online space is filled with idiotic conservatives thinking that childishly "owning" progressives (with kindergarten logic) is the peak of political discourse.

And this isn't some small, loud minority.

I've said this for years, the whole point of just about every Republican politician is to tell people that big government can't function, sit around and fuck things up or don't do anything at all and then when shit grinds to a hault they sit there and tell everyone to look at the non functioning government.

They also love to come in, splatter shit all over the bed and walls and then bitch and moan that the Democrats aren't cleaning it up fast enough.

Something tells her she's going to go the way of Palin. She's just not a useful firebrand like Greene has been, she is actively weak in her district and she's constantly in the news for things that are extremely hard to defend politically. She is a woman in over her head that was financed to be loud, abusive and help push legislation but she's shown to be weak almost immediately after damn near losing, now she's getting divorced and this whole thing is a whirlwind. She's not long for the political world.


u/SeanisNotaRobot 8d ago

Yeah she barely won reelection in a red leaning seat in a red leaning year. She's not gonna gonna be in congress too long. Plus Colorado is blue overall so no real other options politically. She'll float around the right wing grift-osphere a bit I'm sure, but overall I look forward to more or less forgetting that she exists in 2 to 4 years.


u/RippyMcBong 8d ago

Newsmax will put her up as a talking head. She's too dumb and not blonde enough for fox news.


u/Frozen_Esper 8d ago

It would be hilarious if they put her on FOX, but made her bleach her hair.

Perfectly normal. My teenage son always calls 911 when I'm scolding him like a normal, non-abusive parent. I mean, they were just love taps. The bruises and marks? Oh, those were there before I beat him...I mean, before he fell down the stairs. I mean, after he fell down the stairs. Oops.


u/CreamPuffDelight 8d ago

"Hm? What? Did I push him down the stairs? You're insane and that's slander! I just brushed by him by accident because I was tipsy and a little drunk. He should've just ignored me because he's a man! Instead he decided to be a pansy and roll over from a tiny little push instead! "

u/themeatbridge 8d ago

I was blown away to learn that there are more people who identify as trans than there are men and women taller than 6'4" and 6' respectively.


u/mattyoclock 8d ago

Yeah, standard deviations are weird. Once you are taller than 6’7 there’s like a 20% chance you’re a pro athlete too.

Don’t quote me on the percentage but that’s close.


u/AdolescentThug 8d ago

IIRC the statistic was that 17% of American men 7’ or taller end up on an NBA roster at some point in their lives (not sure if that includes being a 2-way or G-League player).

I will never understand how any parent can read about Abraham being told to sacrifice his son Isaac and think this book is something to put faith in. The most natural law we have is don't harm your kids. You want us to take orders to kill our kids from an invisible father that we need to love more than our family? Fuck right off. Those are so clearly the wrong values.

Oh God said syyyke you don't have to actually kill him, but I'm glad you were committed to doing it. You shall be rewarded. Just such horse shit right there.

These are the people who want to “protect the kids”


u/bebejeebies 8d ago

Religious Conservatives are the first ones to demand "privacy" for their family drama. Not only to "deal" with it as a family which translates to teaching the kids how to lie about it to protect the family image, but they lockdown for privacy so the abuse can continue. This is true grooming. You have no choice. There is no dealing with it. Don't talk about it to anyone outside the family. Pray on it and change your own behavior. Source: Just ended a long marriage with someone who came from a devout Christian republican family where abuse was violent and common but the kids never got help because they were raised to keep other people out of family business. All that mattered was how put together the family looked at church.

Of course they think that drag queens are abusing children, because it’s what they would do if they were in that situation.
