    Adam Carolla's epic rant on Occupy Movement

    This might be the greatest thing I've ever heard!

    ALWAYS loved Adam ever since I would hear him weeknights on KROQ for Loveline, then on MTV, and of course all the other stuff.

    I got into his podcast over a year and a half ago or so. Then, come to find out, he's basically a libertarian like I am (small "l" intended).

    Anyway, here is one of my favorite rants. He is a former construction worker than WORKED his way into his income and stature. Anyway, here he is talking to Joel McHale about the regulations in building onto your own house.

    He is right. The "everybody is a winner, nobody is a loser" generation is coming of age. My daughter thought is was stupid when she played soccer in the 3rd grade and they didn't keep score during games. Nobody lost, because everyone is a winner.

    My 3rd grader at the time said that it didn't make sense and people should just deal with it if they don't always win. Instead everyone gets a trophy. All it did was instill a sense of entitlement in kids to receive something they may not have worked as hard for, or earned.

    I have been talking to teachers and some people with varying degrees of post-high school education (Bachelor's, Masters, PhD), all of whom played sports.

    We all agreed that sports taught us things that school couldn't. It taught us to try hard, to compete to win, but also fairly, and that if you work hard you'll find success in some way. It also taught us that if you get knocked down, it's about getting back up and trying again.

    Those that don't get those lessons, we've seen, tend to have difficulty putting it on the line, working hard, and working past obstacles.

    Just anecdotal, but I think something's there.

    a new fan of Adam and daily listener of his podcast. He's very good and I think has a very good point on this.

    i don't completely buy that. Depends on the age. My son played soccer this summer (he was 3) - they don't keep score and they all get a trophy. That's fine. If you're 9 and you have that rule, I think it's stupid.

    Adam always has some great stuff. He's had some great recent ones too. On Herman Cain: “I think he’s been buried in a landslide of poontang and can’t dig his way out,” and “Herman Cain’s penis is like a raccoon in a dumpster.”

    His yelling and groaning in the video I posted had me cracking UP when I first heard it.

    Well done! Haha, caught me.

    I mean I need to start calling people "ass douche".

    I might start with you for pointing it out!!

    Well I think that we can agree that the ass-douche rule does not apply if most of the team requires a diaper change at half time.

    Ass douche? Is it cool to just throw a couple words together and pretend that it's witty or something? Some of this is basically a Carlin rehash, and it fact, it's almost like he plagerized a lot of this shit. Sorry, not impressed. There was no real insight here. It also sounded much smarter coming from George for some reason. hmmm...

    The dude is a bigot and a schmuck. Oh, and for you anti welfare folks... His mom sure loved welfare:

    And here is attacking people that get welfare:
