Here is some memorable quotes from his work:

Easy Rider

George Hanson: You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can’t understand what’s gone wrong with it.
Billy: Man, everybody got chicken, that’s what happened. Hey, we can’t even get into like, a second-rate hotel, I mean, a second-rate motel, you dig? They think we’re gonna cut their throat or somethin’. They’re scared, man.
George Hanson: They’re not scared of you. They’re scared of what you represent to ’em.
Billy: Hey, man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.
George Hanson: Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.
Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That’s what it’s all about.
George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s what’s it’s all about, all right. But talkin’ about it and bein’ it, that’s two different things. I mean, it’s real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don’t ever tell anybody that they’re not free, ’cause then they’re gonna get real busy killin’ and maimin’ to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ’em.
Billy: Well, it don’t make ’em runnin’ scared.
George Hanson: No, it makes ’em dangerous.

George Hanson: [holding up a business card] The governor of Louisiana gave me this. Madame Tinkertoy’s House of Blue Lights, corner of Bourbon and Toulouse, New Orleans, Louisiana. Now, this is supposed to be the finest whorehouse in the south. These ain’t no pork chops! These are U.S. PRIME!

Censorship back in South Africa! Another ploy by the super religious wankers to tell us what we may and may not enjoy, under penalty of law!!!!!!!!! Thugs!!!!!!!!!!! This will never pass. It is against the constitution. I will wipe my arse with that bill if they pass it. Malusi Gigaba is a fucking caveman with his head stuck up really far into his own arse. “There is no reason why the internet should be provided without the necessary restrictive mechanisms built into it,” Gigaba said. Ha-ha!!!!!!!! Welcome to China my china!

Ban porn on SA cells, internet – dept

Cape Town – Deputy Home Affairs MinisterMalusi Gigaba is looking at ways to ban pornography on the internet and cellphones.

Gigaba met the Justice Alliance of South Africa (Jasa) this week to discuss its draft legislation on the matter.

He said this was part of his ongoing work in “providing stewardship” to the Films and Publication Board (FPB).

Jasa director John Smyth presented the draft bill and the legal opinion on the constitutional issues related to the bill.

Jasa’s draft internet and cellphone pornography bill proposed that pornography be filtered out at the tier one service providers to avoid it entering the country.

The bill was aimed at the total ban of pornography on the internet and mobile phones.

Gigaba said it was noted that unlike in the physical world where a reasonable effort could be made for pornography to be kept away from children, in the online world, pornographic sites were often “parked deliberately next door” to educational sites, often with names almost identical.

Electronic channels

Current legislation, particularly the Film and Publication Act, provided for a ban on child pornography, whereas the proposed bill provided for a total ban on pornography on these electronic channels using the wider definition of pornography already available in the Sexual Offences Act.

“Cars are already provided with brakes and seatbelts; it is not an extra that consumers have to pay for.

“There is no reason why the internet should be provided without the necessary restrictive mechanisms built into it,” Gigaba said.

He had asked the Law Reform Commission (LRC) to provide advice on the possibility of legislating against pornography on the internet, television and mobile phones.

The LRC was currently researching the matter, Gigaba said.
