Adam Carolla Interview on Glenn Beck: My Mom Was On Welfare, And It Made A Cripple Out of An Able-Bodied Woman

Good interview with Carolla, who explains that he doesn't feel bad about telling people to get a job and get out of poverty because he did so himself: "I feel uniquely qualified to tell people to get off their ass." (Video embed below the fold.)

In other right-leaning comic news, Rick Moranis wants to know how hard he's supposed to think about the social effects of his buying decisions. Like the impact on unions, or local businesses (if he buys from a national retailer).

A sillier passage is about funding Al Qaeda

The traffic was terrible. Here I was, going nowhere, idling in a quick-ticking metered medallion taxi, driving up the price of oil, edging the country further into runaway inflation while spewing noxious fumes into the precious air around me. I am such a horrible person.

The driver, a pleasant Middle-Eastern man who I did not suspect was part of, or supporting, any terrorist organizations, was sipping a very large cup from one of several dozen popular coffee shop locations within a three-block radius of my home. I was pleased that at least one of us was supporting the hardworking baristas of this great nation.

I wondered out loud if the driver thought the price of his beverage would be higher or lower if baristas were unionized. He told me that in his country only men could be baristas and if a woman was caught even trying to be a barista she would be roasted, percolated and covered in scalding, foamy nonfat goat's milk. He said "Only America is free. Only America is great. God Bless America."

It sounded a bit suspicious to me. Was I seeing something? Should I say something? I threw him a 10-spot and decided to walk. I wondered how much of that $10 would wind up in the hands of our sworn enemies and felt a pang of pride in the dedication of our defenders.

Thanks to BenK; second item via Hot Air's headlines.
