    Thanks for the quote. Some thing other than the obvious has been bothering me about this movie and your quote crystalized it for me. This "film" took no risks whatsoever. Pure cowardice.

    So, Certain facts speak for themselves (no matter what political offiliation you have)!

    If the Governor of Florida is a relative of Pres. Bush and the person in charge of vote-counting is a relative of Bush, and the head of Fox news is a member of groups like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderburgers (eg. related to Bush in as many words)

    AND...

    Bush wins Florida without actually having the votes (and Fox announces it) then something is wrong. Sure his family simply played the politics game better (and got $1.4 Billion from the Saudi's as well...) so he gets to play President.

    That's America, stand proud and say we took what we could and gave nothin back!


    I liked the movie; it gave (mostly) unbiased, honest facts about America's current government officials. From the Bush/Bin Laden many, many year lucrative connection, to the obvious Cheney/Halliburton connection. Also pointed out a few things like the Saudis made 237 Million dollars on the day Iraq was attacked due to being majority stock holder of the company that manufactures Bradley fighting vehicles/tanks.


    Enjoy the movie! Everyone on earth should see it! If for nothing else to see some plain facts and see how you personally want to deal with that knowledge.

    Sounds pretty close to what BJ Clinton said about Monica...

    Glad you like the movie.

    I know... I've got a few jabs comin' my way after that but I'd rather be (mostly) upfront with I think.

    Saying that the file was mostly unbiased has to be the most ludicrous statement ever posted on this board.

    I gotta tell this story:

    A couple of guys I know wanted me to go see this with them.

    They kept razzing me about how I have no reason not to see it while they promoted how cool, right, and honest Moore is. (insert BARF smiley here....)

    These socialists proceeded to razz me about having issues with Bush and yet just being stupid about not wanting to get the REAL info. -So one decides to ask me:

    IF I gave you $10,000 would you see it?

    My reply: NO.

    100,000?

    NO.

    1,000,000?

    NO.

    Now they are laughing at me calling me an idiot.

    1 billion dollars!?!?!?

    NO!

    Them: WHY?

    Me:

    Because #1, I know quite simply who and what he is about. I also know his opinions and some of the statements in the film. I know at least SOME of his "facts" are non-backable opinions based on guesses with ZERO foundation. A whole pack of foggy assumptions does not equal truth.

    #2, I DON'T COMPROMISE MY MIND by opening it up to such sewage so repeatedly as to start to BELIEVE IT.

    ------

    I shut them up, but their opinion of me remains lower.

    I don't care.

    Let them watch their 6 hrs of tv everyday while their beta waves are manipulated into relaxation causing an openness to suggestion.

    Let them claim "world view" is what determines moral standards and that everyone can have their own because the thought of an objective RIGHT and WRONG is "unfair" and impossible to determine.

    Let them think Moore is cool and correct.

    These guys are in for a GNASHING OF TEETH.

    I saw the movie and I could not believe the crowds! All the shows were sold out and my husband and I had to wait in a line that started inside and wound up outside for about 30 mins. They even put the movie in two seperate theaters for the same time because of how many people were there. I don't think I have ever seen the Esplanade that packed before.

    I thought the movie was pretty good, but not shocking or surprising like some critics said it was. I guess, primarily because most of the stuff I already knew or heard about. But it was still good and provided some info, footage or what have you, that I hadn't been aware of.
