Probably the usual entertaining load of liberal crap being released as a "documentary" but he himself has said his movies in the past are op-ed pieces.

He has been accused of creative editing in prior movies to support his agenda by sequencing footage in a way that doesn't necessarily reflect actual occurrences, that his movies are documentaries like Oliver Stone's "JFK" is a purely factual account of the history of the Kennedy assassination.

I'd rather have teeth pulled than sit thru a Michael Moore documentary.

Well, of course, if the bloke is going to be consistent with the theme of his movie, he shouldn't charge anyone to see it. After all, that would be making money and profit, wouldn't it? So let's all go in with video cameras, bootleg this, and pass out pirated copies all over town and the Internet for free.

My personal opinion on Michael Moore is that if he didn't eat so much there would be enough surplus to end world hunger. just sayin.

@ GDA and Babs.
Which part of Sicko was wrong? the part where the woman testifies before congress that she was told to deny claims no matter what the reason? Or that part where the prisoners of Guantanamo get better health care than most Americans?
Or wait, that part about the woman who had to go to JAPAN to get a brain tumor treated because her insurance wouldn't cover it.
Yeah. shame on that liberal Michael Moore.

Pointing out inequities in a deeply flawed healthcare system or making a case that the Iraq war was senseless will always guarantee the wrath of the USA #1 foam finger brigade.

jmgiordano,

No comments on Sicko, I've not seen it or wanted to given the director and previous work.

He's proven to be on other occasions to be the kind of guy who insist that government loans to businesses, which are being paid back with interest, are bailouts, like the government is rich father throwing money at his misbehaving kids problems just to make them go away.

Just because it's actual footage doesn't mean it's being used to tell the legitimate truth.

There was a critique of Fahrenheit 911 about things like instances of sequencing footage making people look like they are making decisions on information they knew, but would actually learn later, and ignored to make them look foolish or callous. But then he was so rabidly anti-Bush that even at liberal functions they couldn't contain his tirades and get him off stage fast enough.

There was a TV and print news item about how he filed charges against a former employee who was making a movie about him in the manner he makes own movies. Apparently, you can't operate by his rules if they are going to be used against him.

No, he doesn’t inspire confidence that you’re getting a honest argument on a subject. but he is good at telling like minded people what they want to hear.

Bowling For Columbine and Sicko were interesting, though a little one-sided. He does make valid points, but he doesn't refute any opposing points. That's the difference between a good argument and propaganda. Fahrenheit 9/11 was just blatant propaganda and completely one-sided. I'm guessing his new one will be more like 9/11 than his other work. He goes into all his documentaries with an opinion which he just hammers in for 90 minutes... a better way would be to go in with an open mind and develop an opinion as the research unfolds. ...But that's simply not his style.

Yeah, Michael "Fast Bastard" Moore has made a fortune thanks to capitalism and free market, yet he attacks it. Using half truths is his mojo, and that's what makes him the biggest liar.

Like a good drug dealer, he gets some people hooked on "free" stuff, and then charges through the nose.

wow since Jon isnt having fun no one else is going to have fun...Kate Plus 8...I give it 2 seasons.

michael - look gina just gave the subject for your next documentary, unless your going to get inspired to make canadan bacon 2.

Right-winged bastards! All of you! You should be ashemed of yourself. Turn of your TV and get some real info on how the world is run at; www.therealnews.com

Michael Moore points out that 95% of the wealth is now controlled by only 1% of the population in the United States. Does this statistic bother anybody? Imagine an elementary school class room at the beginning of the year. The teacher lays out a whole years school supplies on a large table. Then the teacher ask the students to collect the supplies they need. But instead one student rushes over to the supply table and grabs 95% of the paper, crayons, binders, pencils, text books, erasers etc. Then that student turns to the largest bullies in class and tells them to beat up anybody that tries to take my stuff!
If you are born into a country with natural resources and wealth, at what point does that wealth belong to the commons and at what point does it belong to a very few powerful individuals who have the political clout and power to keep it for themselves? There is no such thing as a rugged individualist who made it on their own. People who are super rich got that way by exploiting the commons and tipping the rules in their favor.
The oil in the ground does not belong to a few individuals who happened to come along at the right time and exploit it. The top soil does not belong to a few wealthy individuals who want to use it up for short term profits. The air and water do not belong to a few individuals who pollute it at the expense of future generations.
Americans need to stop catering to the super rich and powerful and stand up for what is right.
All wealth is accumulated at the expense of the commons. Wealth is created where there is an educated work force. Wealth is created when there are controlled market places, when there is a controlled monetary system, when there is a police force, when there is government sponsored research, when there are laws governing ownership and contracts, when there are roads and highways, when there are managed natural resources. All of these are a result of the commons. One person does not have the right to exploit the commons while huge numbers of citizens become poor and the environment is destroyed.
The only way to reverse this trend is to tax the super rich and spend that money wisely by using it to promote sustainable economic activities.
During the Eisenhower administration in the 1950s the top tax rate for any individual who made over 3.5 million dollars a year ( adjusted for inflation ) was 95%. That effectively caused the longest continued expansion of economic growth in American history. When wealthy individuals are forced to reinvest their wealth back into their companies or give it to the commons in the form of tax’s revenues than the greatest benefactor is the middle class.
The legislative branches of our government are being controlled by a small number of individuals who have accumulated unprecedented levels of wealth. This is evidence by the fact that the American tax payers recently bought 2 trillion dollars of junk mortgages from the banks to protect the losses of the investor class, but only gave 1 billion dollars to the cash for clunkers program to increase employment on main street.
We need a Sustainable Economic Activity Initiative Ballot in every state. The goal of the Sustainable Economic Activity Ballot Initiative would be to dramatically raise the state tax’s on the wealthiest individuals and corporations and redistribute that wealth to small businesses that promote sustainable economic activity within each state.
The revenues collected should be distributed to the counties based on population. The individual counties should have the power to decide which sustainable economic activities they want to promote and how the funds are to be spent.
The initiative needs to clearly define how the additional revenues are to be collected and what the new tax rate will be for the wealthiest individuals and corporations. The initiative needs to clearly define what is considered a small business. The initiative needs to give general guidelines to the counties defining what is considered sustainable economic activities.
I believe this will create huge voter participation in local county politics as small organizations and businesses attempt to lobby each county government to support their particular concept of sustainable economic activities.
In 1979 1% of the population received approximately 37% of all the income in the United States. Today 1% of the population receives approximately 57% of all the income in the United States. The unchecked growth of wealth accumulation by a very few super rich individuals is destroying the economy and our democracy. Over the last thirty years the middle class has seen a significant decline in long term asset accumulation in exchange for leveraged debt. At the same time the lower class has become increasingly poorer.
The United States economic system and democracy where founded on principals that favor a strong middle class and a strong democracy. In order for a strong middle class and democracy to flourish all levels of economic activity must adequately support a sustainable commons and infrastructure. The end result of our current economic policy is wide spread debt peonage and a reduced standard of living for everyone but the very wealthy. At the same time we are experiencing extreme world wide environmental degradation.
The true unemployment and underemployment rate is closer to 25%. The number of bankruptcies and foreclosures are at the highest rate since the great depression. The percentage of incarcerated citizens is also at an all time high. Environmental degradation has reached a level that seriously threatens long term climate stability and even long term food security.
The influence of well financed lobbyist has made it virtually impossible to pass meaningful legislation that will reverse these figures. Participation of the general population in the political system is very low and could ultimately result in major unrest.
Over the last 30 years worker productivity has dramatically increased. Yet at the same time average wages have dramatically decreased. The super wealthy pay a much lower tax rate and the middle class pay a much higher tax rate.
The Sustainable Economic Activity Ballot Initiative is designed to bring about a major shift in economic and environmental policy by transferring the control of resources away from the new American oligarchy and into small scale and local businesses that practice and promote sustainable economic activities.
History has shown that widespread poverty and injustice goes hand in hand with a few privileged individuals accumulating a disproportionate control over a countries resources. Super wealthy individuals tend to accumulate additional assets from predator lending practices, monopolistic businesses, bribery, favored tax status, corporate welfare, insider trading, financial market instability, control of the media and financial market gambling.
Wealthy individuals, corporations and cartels favor privatizing any profits that can be squeezed from the needs of the commons and socializing losses once the commons have been stripped of their vitality. These activities are apt to devastate the long term viability of the economy and environment. An analogy can be made to a tape worm that drains all the life out of its hose but leaves its host just barely alive so it can continue to drain additional vitality in the future.
The Sustainable Economic Activity Ballot Initiative will appeal to those citizens who feel powerless and presently disenfranchised from the political system. The proposed change in the tax structure is designed to significantly increase honest employment in areas that will encourage improvements in the natural environment, energy security, food security, economic stability and holistic health.
The ballot initiative is intended to significantly increase the collection of tax revenues from the super rich and transfer that wealth to small businesses and non profit corporations as direct subsidies and grants to support long term sustainability and growth in the private sector.
The current tax structure encourages debt accumulation at the expense of asset accumulation and savings. It also favors short term profits over long term sustainability. Businesses that make money by selling financial services are taking away investment in real goods and services. Corporations and industries that damage the environment are lowering the standard of living for generations to come.
Wealth accumulates from the exploitation of natural resources at the expense of the commons. Therefore the only way to sustain viable economic growth is for the commons to benefit from wealth accumulation.
Industries and activities that encourage long term sustainability often require a larger investment of manpower. Subsidies and grants from tax revenues is the only way to encourage promoting activities that require additional manpower over activities that depend on depleting finite resources such as oil, top soil, clean water, and forest.
It is easy to cut down a forest and sell the lumber. It is more expensive to replant the forest. But over the long run an economy that replants its forest will be much healthier for everyone.
The local counties are best suited for making any final decisions as to which businesses and organizations will best serve improving the long term wealth and sustainability of the commons. This will encourage additional participation in local democratic institutions. The initiative specifies that tax revenue’s are to be distributed to small industries and non-profits to better facilitate a more fair distribution of recourses. Small companies and organizations produce more overall employment and economic diversity than large corporations. Large companies and organizations tend to create monopolies that stifle ingenuity and crush competition. Large businesses and organizations tend to outsource employment while small companies and organizations tend to hire local employees which has the added benefit of an economic multiplier effect. Large companies also tend to overpay top level executives through capital gains at the expense of poorly paid and expendable employees.
The initiative needs to be simple and to the point. We need to place a huge tax on the very wealthy, and transfer that wealth to the commons. But it needs to be invested in promoting sustainable economic activity so that the investment promotes additional economic activity over and over and over. We need to make sure the initiative is legal and can not be arbitrarily knocked down by the courts at a later date.
For example it has been shown that every dollar of government subsidy spent on promoting ethanol fuel has a multiplier effect of around 21 times in the local economy and returns between $4-$8 in additional tax revenue dollars.
All of the money gained from increasing tax revenues from the super rich needs to go towards creating long term sustainability and economic activity that will create jobs and increase tax revenues from the middle class.
I believe the middle class would not rebel against paying more tax’s if the rate of unemployment where closer to zero than to 20%.
The super rich have made it impossible to enforce existing antitrust legislation designed to prevent an American Transnational Oligarchy from controlling our legislature and laws. For years progressives have talked about taking away the tax incentives to large corporations who send our jobs over seas. But nothing ever happens. For years progressives have talked passing legislation to promote using renewable resources. But very little has been accomplished. For years progressives have talked a national health care plan. But if the middle class is becoming too poor to pay for a national health care plan, than it will also never happen.
The goal of the initiative is to put the power to control our destiny back in the hands of local governments.
For example solar voltaic panels and wind mills pay for themselves after a number of years. After that they supply relatively low cost and clean electricity. Over time the cost of energy goes down and the standard of living goes up. Over time the cost of cleaning up global warming and pollution also go down.
The only businesses that increase employment are small businesses. Therefore the transfer of wealth needs to be to small businesses that promote sustainable economic activity.
Another example is growing organic fruits and vegetables. The meat and diary industries receive so many subsidies that some economist estimate that the true cost of meat should be around $95 per pound. Counties could choose to set aside funds to subsidize fruits and vegetables that are grown organically and farmers that use perennial poly culture techniques that build top soil and reduce our dependency on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Over time this would lower the cost of healthier foods, it would lower the cost of health care, it would lower of the cost of cleaning up water, air and soil pollution, it would create more labor intensive employment, it would increase middle class tax revenues, it would have a monetary multiplier effect on other support industries and lower the cost of restoring our topsoil.
Another example is recycling industrial waste. The initial cost of recycling industrial waste streams is usually more expensive than just storing waste in toxic land fills. But ultimately recycling industrial waste is actually very cost effective and would pay for itself many times over. Please send any comments on this idea to JeffHeaton@comcast.net

Jeff,

Do think you write a concise abstract that people will actually spend the time to read? then the ones wishing fuller information can read your magnus opus of comments ever written and entered.

Presumably you want people to read the above or at least some of it, as it stands, people will look at lengh and blow it off as a rant.

Jeff, my eyes are bleeding.

Oh, look at Jeff, he can copy and paste huge swaths of rants. And then click "post" twice.

So can I. But I won't.

From an interview on Larry King Live. "...Capitalism is the legal system that allows this greed to take place and in recent times what it means is that the regulations and rules that use to keep these people in check is no longer keeping them in check. I don't believe in a system in which the richest one percent should own or have as much wealth as the bottom 95 percent combined.

Michael Moore points out that 95% of the wealth is now controlled by only 1% of the population in the United States. Does this statistic bother anybody?

Yes. That statistic bothers me because it is completely wrong. Michael Moore does not make that claim. He has claimed that the top 1% of earners control more wealth than the bottom 95% of earners combined. Not that the top 1% control 95% of total wealth. That's not a subtle difference.

But as this is not a political blog, I'll refrain from commenting further.

What bothers me is that an awful lot of people will watch the current MichaelMoore crapfest and swallow everything without questioning how true any of this is. The same people who think "An Inconvenient Truth" and it's creator deserved to be unquestionably and aggressively defended. The same people who never actually pick up a piece of newspaper except to throw it into the recycling and the only thing they know about people like Rush Limbaugh are out of context sound bites, with a commentator's opinion and think they actually know something about the person and what he believes.
Regardless what you think you know and believe, do your own googling and find out more about the topic and the people who make these things.
