    I watched about 1/2 of Moore's film, and I was wondering what anyone found in it that wasn't the truth about capitalism and the downfall of America to the rich and corporations?

    Thoughts?

    Jesus. First a John Q thread, now a Michael Moore capitalism is bad thread?

    Do all you liberals really get your ideological views from HOLLYWOOD MOVIES?????

    Let me ask you this: Capitalism made Micael Moore rich by allowing him to make edited movies for retards like you to pay him for. Unless I missed the part about Michael Moore giving away all his money except $50,000 a year for living costs??????

    I guess Moore left out the other deleted scene in that movie:

    (Moore): "See, under capitalism, I can make a movie ranting about capitalism, and then retarded left wingers will flock to buy a ticket, rent it, or buy the DVD and make me rich!!!!"

    You're just now seeing it dude? Awesome documentary.

    LoLing @ it being a "Hollywood Movie"

    It depicts how far and overboard capitalism has gone.

    People who intectually stick their fingers in their ear and scream "la, la, la, la la!" absolutely crack me up.

    There never was a downfall, that's a myth, thanks to the bailout they all have their wealth again...its everyone else that has to suffer now, if the US economy actually collapses then they will take their money and try to flee the country, but I am sure a few will find themselves lynched before then, including the President, Congress, the Senate and their cronies should they themselves be foolish enough to try anything similar. I think its been said so many times, but French Revolution anyone? :lol:

    I have no interest in what that asshole has to say.
    I used to at least watch his documentaries,(left wing propaganda movies), and laugh at the nonsense he spews. But his rich, half ton ass bitching about the healthcare system was the last I waste any time on him. His money, and American healthcare, will save that hypocritical whales' ass one of these days, and do you think he will give any thanks for it? No fuckin' way, there will be a movie about how he woke up with an itchy ass or something.

    Marc....Moore is like Dean....bring up a good point.....and then start slinging some bullshit.....Bowling for Columbine was pretty one sided.....his Medical thing Sick....was very biased.....he never showed the other side of the Island and showed how the "Peasants" receive this great Medical Care he says Cuba has.....all in all Moore has an agenda.....give us his view on things and the bottom line>......$$$$$$$......

    I watched part of it.

    It's not a documentary b/c documentaries are based on all the facts not the ones liberals like.

    You guys are fools. You know he's a whack job and yet you buy his crap like it's gospel.

    Who DOESN'T show mostly their side of things when presenting an argument?

    He was counteracting the current meme that said that everything was hunky dorey. Keep that in mind.

    How leftist eat up Moore is fascinating.
    Anybody who has bothered for even a few moments of study on the man will learn he is a fraud in almost every detail going by to the very beginning of his career.
    The man to this day still lies about where he was born an raised for Pete's sake, despite concrete absolute proof he was raised in a wealthy town called Davison near Flint.

    His films are chocked full of falsifications, grossly edited footage and outright, unapologetic lies. He even says so himself.
    But yet, leftist still call the films "brilliant" "great" etc. etc.

    It boggles the mind how someone can accept a lie, and then call it brilliant.
