So I decided I'll watch this movie..

Actually I just pressed play, anywho..

Watching the Preview, I saw the Release Date which was, "October 2nd".
My question is.. He kept asking the Corps to pay back the American people, and I wonder.. After the Stimulus was put into Law during Obama's Presidency was he going to have the same View? Or come up with some bullshit saying the Stimulus was needed?

Or is he actually gonna stop being a Hypocrite and actually not defend Obama?


Thoughts?

Finally finished watching it.. and wow... I was waiting for some Humor like in his previous "Documentaries"

Instead.. It's full blown Hypocrisy..

To sum up what happened I was actually reading a Blog from Michael Shermer who perfectly Explained it.

What about the people on the other end of the economic spectrum — the bankers and Wall Street moguls? Why aren’t they being evicted. Now, given that I’m a libertarian, you might expect me to come to the defense of Corporate America.

Not so. Here I am in complete agreement with Michael Moore that, as I’ve been saying since the day it was first pronounced, “too big to fail” is the great myth of our time. None of these giant corporations — GM, AIG, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, et al. — should have been bailed out. In fact, they should have been allowed to fail, their stocks go into the toilet, their employees tossed out on to the gilded streets of lower Manhattan, and their CEOs dispersed to work as greeting clerks at Walmart. They gambled and lost on all those securities, bundled securities, derivatives, credit default swaps, and other “financial tools” that I’ll bet not one in a hundred Wall Street experts actually understands. If you really believe in free enterprise, you must accept the freedom to lose everything on such gambles. These CEOs and their corporate lackeys are nothing more than welfare queens who adhere to the motto “in profits we’re capitalists, in losses we’re socialists.” Sorry guys, you can’t have it both ways without corrupting your morals, which you have, along with the politicians you’ve bribed, cajoled and otherwise coerced to your bidding.

The solution? I have some suggestions of my own, but Michael Moore’s solution is beyond bizarre: replace capitalism with democracy. Uh? Replace an economic system with a political system? Even the über liberal Bill Maher was baffled by that one when he hosted Moore on his HBO show. How does a democracy produce automobiles and computers and search engines? It doesn’t. It can’t.

Perfect.. The Whole Bailout wasn't a Left Vs. Right Issue, It's Logic sense..

Michael kinda contradicted himself.. True Capitalism isn't about Bailing out Failing Companies.. It's quite the Opposite! In other words, if you actually knew what Capitalism is about he actually praised Capitalism in a way.. Think about it..

Also, Michael kept portraying Obama as a fucking savior.. Some sort of "I'm here for the Little guy." I'd kinda like to see how Michael Feels about Obama and his Spending ways.. not to mention the Stimulus Package..
