    Michael Moore's fat bloated self was on CNN a few minutes ago. Larry King asked him about the oil spill.

    Moore kinda got teary eyed looking, gazed up and away from the camera, and just began speaking with wonder saying "You know, this is America, that was a 7 inch hole, 36 inches tall....the pipe was 36 inches....and it took us 90 days to plug it"......"What happened to us? We're America, what happened.....nothing works anymore" (he then blasted oil companies and corporations for having so much power)

    Well, Mr. Moore, I agree with you. WHAT happened to "us"? Our morality went down the crapper for one. Thats why people act the way they act these days. Values like modesty, integrity, selflessness and thrift have been thrown out the window.

    As for why we couldn't fix the hole quicker, well, it takes research and development to make technological leaps like that. It takes............GASP:eek:............PROFIT to fund R&D. Oil companies need......gasp.....profits to pay for extracirricular research and development. We need things like NASA, yes the same NASA whose budget Obama just slashed and who he told their job would be to make Muslims feel good about themselves.

    Mr. Moore, we need evil, greedy, profit driven corporations like Boeing, Locheed-Martin, Microsoft, Exxon, and yes, even the diabolical Haliburton, to turn big profits so they can field research and development teams to come up with innovations to tend to future unforseen problems.

    It takes big profits in the medical field for them to fund studies and experiments to innovate and create new medicines and cures. Evil, stinking slimey profits.

    Mr. Moore is right. "What happened to us"? We have fallen. In innovation, in morality, in manners, all as the country has slowly drifted more and more liberal.

    Mr. Moore asks "What happened to us" and he'll probably blast conservatives next for wanting to "take us backwards". Backwards sounds pretty good some days.

    Excellent post!:)

    What's happened to us? We've become fat, complacent, and on the lookout for government cheese.

    Yep, pretty much.

    We've become fat and lazy, but bitch about wanting affordable health insurance.

    We've become selfish, lazy, greedy and feel like we are entitled to everything....and wonder why companies don't want to hire us.

    We demand companies not make obscene profits, yet bitch and moan when a new problem we've never seen before emerges and the company hasn't done research and development on ways to solve the problems that haven't arisen yet.

    We want freedom, but want protection from failure.

    Liberals say conservatives just want to take us back 50 years. Well, there are some values of 50 years ago I wouldn't mind seeing us rediscover.

    Key point, that is what happened to America. You cannot have freedom without the possibility of failure and that is precisely what we are pushing these days - protecting people from their own bad decisions.

    Does one rich company being irresponsible mean we should confiscate the profits of all major companies?

    BP is going to be the poster child for all liberal causes for the next 75 years. You guys are down on your knees thanking the Global Warming Santa aren't you?

    I would be shocked if Moore had a freaking clue about anything other than junk food and junk journalism. He's proof that the trailer parks aren't all republicans.
