Some of Carlin's comments apply to Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is under the category of "foreign country" in the US Tax Code, so as to provide special tax benefits for multinational corporations, called CFC's (Controlled Foreign Corporations - we are the foreign component).
It is all but impossible to get by this obstacle to achieve free determination.
Their army of lobbyists, attorneys, and local wealth (remnants of the colonial "sugar barons") are always on guard to protect Puerto Rico's status quo. They will destroy anyone who gets in their way.
Puerto Rico's territorial political and economic empire includes the CFC's, an army of highly paid lobbyists and lawyers, local businessmen, corrupt politicians and greedy individuals, who have full control our lives and future. MJ

An American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor and writer/author, who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a narrow 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. WIKIPEDIA
