    That's like Michael Jordan saying that basketball did nothing for him.

    Moore said: “Well, capitalism did nothing for me, starting with my first film.You know, I had to pretty much beg, borrow and steal,” he said. “The system is not set up to help somebody from the working class make a movie like this and get the truth out there.”


    here we are ...the full quote.

    What the fuck does he think Capitalism is?????????????

    You think people just throw money at Micheal Moore because he's a fat fuck who wants to make his first film?

    Holy Crap! How can he even make a film about capitalism if he doesn't know what it is!???

    Thanks for correcting the record, Jay.

    Don't ya' just LOVE the way people take quotes out of context to pervert the meaning of the person they're misquoting?
