    Michael Moore - Love 'em or Hate 'em

    OK first let me say I'm no Michael Moore fan. We all know the guy's typical agenda especially when it comes to guns.

    However.....

    I have a friend who is in the entertainment industry and I just saw a pre-screen of Moore's new movie "Capitalism: A Love story" and all I can say is ....WOW!

    Everyone has to watch this movie, it is unreal. And shockingly it is not about a Liberal V. Conservative story or issue. I don't necessarily agree with Moore's whole Capitalism is dead theory, but if you can look past the moron in the movie you will be annoyed beyond belief.

    It is flat scary what is going on in this country right now and it seems that NO ONE knows it, or cares about it. I'm just so disappointed in what is going on in the financial sector in this country. I knew it was bad, but this movie points out a whole bunch more stuff than I even knew.

    And folks this is not one of those deals where Moore takes quotes and spins them to look bad. This is straight up in your face facts that are not being spun or anything. It is just pathetic. Totally pathetic!

    Every politician in this country should be hanged for their crimes against the people. Republicans and Democrats alike, they are both culpable and they are both fooling and lying to all of us. And they are doing it with the money from Wall Street. Very sad.

    I read that the guy is worth some $50 million personally?

    I want him to practice what he preaches and share some of that money with me. Aside from the points in his movie, we have no one to blame but ourselves for this mess. As I have told many of my cool-aid drinking relatives and others, go look in the mirror if you want to assign blame. Yes, we can fix it, but first we have to go out and vote these imbeciles out of office, then revert our government's laws back to the way they were to prevent people like this from ever gaining power again.....

    Oh don't get me wrong I'm not telling anyone to pay for it. But people should see it before they toss it away as another Moore flop sweat stinker.

    Let me guess, the moral of the movie:

    The solution is more power to the Fed and more power and intervention by the government (even though the Fed and government intervention screwed us up, and has been doing so for over 80 years).

    Free markets for free people. When markets are not free, disaster results.

    Moore does have the talent for being very persuasive. Just remember he is an actor, what he presents as facts many times aren't. The whole point of his endeavors are to push his socialist agenda. Just remember that America was, prior to the last decade or two, the wealthiest nation on Earth with the highest standard of living.
    The rest of the world envied our lower, lower class. Things started going wrong when government decided it could do things better and started interfering with the free market.
    As usual once government stepped in things started going wrong. Want a good example of government running the economy, Cash for Clunkers.

    That guy bugs the crap out of me. I'm not sure if I could stomach any more Moore in this lifetime.

    It's hard to believe he would present anything factual.

    What did you think of his earlier movies, Fatcat? Did you think they were factual or trumped up hot air?

    I would rather donate the $10 movie or $30 (family) and donate to the National Rifle Association.

    Funny how he uses Capitalism to launch his movies to market yet he publicly despises it. A moron and an idiot from a political standpoint, he feels that because he is a movie maker, that he suddenly is a spokesperson for the Left and the Marxist policies.

    Rather than perform speaking engagement, he should be the Before Person for Jenny Craig.

    If I do see it I will buy a ticket for a different movie and then accidentally go in the wrong theater.

    I seen him on Leno, his head looked like a pea on a 55 gallon drum. I do not want to fork over a dirty rotten cent to that pile of bloat.

    He represents one of the minions of Ministry of Propaganda for the Obama Administration. Besides donating cash to the NRA rather than a Moore movie, I would also include cash to ASPA. I would rather treat an animal better than contribute to that moron's bottom line.

    Thats a good idea Jetpiolet007. The next time me and my wife go to a movie I won't take her to the michael moore film, and I'll also donate the amount of money we spend to the NRA.

    Imagine heading into the local Men's Wearhouse and looking for size "55gal" in the racks.

    Whatever else can be said, whether a person likes or dislikes the method and the madness, he's been bright enough to explore opinions and attitudes sufficiently well to accumulate a few $bills at the bank. A PhD. psychology he's not, but he does peel back the onion to help folks think and consider, even if his aim is at a certain level.
