4. He's a media "personality" who is in the top 1% (actually, the top 0.1 %)
The last time I heard of him, he had a radio show where he incessantly joked about how many times a day he masturbates. Since I'm over 15, I'm not in his demographic. So I don't know what he's doing these days. But apparently he's still in the overpaid media biz.

13. Are you serious?
Is he really in the top 1% (actually, the top 0.1 %)?

What does it take to reach being in the top 1%?

8. Be careful, he might.
Carolla will do almost anything for money...except actual work that produces something of value.

14. I listened to this jagoff on the WTF podcast. Basically, his parents were dicks to him.
Edited on Mon Dec-05-11 06:15 PM by Guy Whitey Corngood
He went out did some shitty jobs for a while. He got lucky because someone thought he was funny. So everyone who claims they can't get a job is full of shit. Because he did it... once.

My fucking brain hurts having listened to that verbal diarrhea.

15. Used to like this guy
I used to watch him on the Man Show, and thought he was funny.

Now he's just another mute-button-able pos wind bag.

16. His mother was on welfare and when he asked her to take a job
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 04:42 AM by jakeXT
she didn't want to, because she would lose the welfare money.
I think he was traumatized by that.

I don't know if raising the top income tax rate will help the problem.
But he doesn't read and probably doesn't know why it has been lowered or where the money went instead.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Income_tax_in_the_United_States#History_of_top_rates

There are bigger problems like world reserve currency, exponential growth of debt, derivatives etc.


He believes the official 911 story and had Jesse Ventura on, who by the way could have done a better job.

He rants about the Michael Moores of the world and had him on.

17. Yes...those multi-billion dollar companies that are getting refunds...
...due to tax loopholes and shelters are definitely paying their fair share.

I just don't get how ignorance rules the world. We are doomed.
