Micheal Moore issued a subpoena by Bush Administration?


www.starpulse.com

Sicko director Michael Moore has been subpoenaed by the Bush administration, the filmmaker announced on The Tonight Show Thursday evening.

“I haven’t even told my own family yet,” Moore said. “I was just informed when I was back there with Jay that the Bush administration has now issued a subpoena for me.”

This is just narly interesting. Are we going to witness a blatant public example out of Mr. Moore? My feelings are such that after this plays out, we will all see the government for which we now reside in. Or it could just be a scare tactic, but I doubt it!

They will send Moore to Guantanamo as a Traitor.

TBH I hope they do. I don't like Bush, but I hate idiotic film makers more....


Will be interesting to see this play out.

This is just the case of the little boy who didn't believe in sticks and stones, words will never hurt me. Georgie is used to getting his way and using his influence to get it. Only "he" gets to be the bully, and if you outsmart him he's only whooped, not beaten.

This is obviously a retributive measure, and Moore was scrutinized. Finally they found a way to put the screws to him for the humiliation he caused the Bush Administration.

For those of you thinking this is retribution....

In 2003 the New York Yankees settled with the US Government for $75,000 for violating the Cuba embargo.

Seems like the Yankees were smart and settled quickly. Since Moore was so blatant, and flaunting about it, the fine should be much higher.

Yay, go non-existent freedoms of which the American citizens are so very proud of.

Sure, Micheal Moore is not exactly the nicest thing to look at on screen, sure he can be obnoxious... but quite frankly, his latest movie Sicko is just a load of truths. I've personally been to most of the countries he went to in that movie, and that is EXACTLY how it works here, and there.

Trying to tackle Micheal Moore because he let a few movie-goers know the truth... thats no better than the book burnings. And we all know what happened to those racist, fascist little rascals, don't we?

And so what if he wen't to Cuba... here I was thinking we had the right to travel where we want to... or is that Canada I'm thinking of.

Can't say I am a fan of Moore, but I like what he says in the article.
What I would like to know is what are the laws in the U.S. for travel to and from Cuba?

Apples and Oranges, the Yankees are an American Icon, a symbol of national pride. They got a slap on the wrist as punishment for their semi-public voraciousness for carribean talent.

They were only ratted out because they had a bigger payroll and a near monopoly on buying the loyalty of these formally dirt-poor islanders. This is rampant all across baseball, but someone on the inside thought the yankees needed to be punished for their illegal monopoly, their "financial edge". Someone Jealous...

Moore is being targeted because he is a perennial thorn in the side to the Bush Administration. He has revealed it's complacancy to actually listen to it's constituents, and a whistleblower on the corporate take-over of our government. Our Laws are guidlines for the rich, and beauracratic draconian quagmires that drain the resources and time of the little-man.
The litte-man loses eminent domain style. He spends his money to live, not to fight inequality against a nearly limitlessly funded behemoth, with an agenda.

Don't stand in the way of Big G-dub Gubment...

For those of us that live by common sense, and see this for what it is, it's a legal dirty-fighting, sand in the eyes, retalitory maneuver.

I think he's just making things up.

Anyway, the administration usually can't issue a subpoena on its own, it has to go through the courts.

Plus, you don't find out you're served with a subpoena on the phone -- they have to physically give it to you, and they usually take your picture holding it in the process.

I have received numerous subpoenas to testify in criminal cases, and half were mailed to me the other half were sent in person my the sheriff's office. The mailed one's had two copies, one for personal records, the other was to be signed and returned immediately. I did not do that, just showed up and everything was fine. I was not home for the first subpoena delivered by the Sheriff, but they left it with a resident of the house to give to me. The other's were signed and dated in the presence of the sheriff. So I am not sure where this photograph business comes into play? Is that just for "important" subpoenas?

In the article i read, MM was handed the subpoena.

What a joke...Here we go- how dare MM make documentaries against America's health systems?

Another shocking bit of news.

Well whatever the case, if he did something illegal, he should be held accountable for it.

Oh, those dang perceived, and imagined, illegalities again! Have you made up anymore lately? You know Bush went to Afgahnistan and personnaly killed Pat Tillman don't you?


If an "American Icon" like the Yankees can get in trouble for Cuban dealings, then Michael Moore deserves the same if not more of a punishment

Michael Moore knew this was coming, that is why he flaunted it. What better publicity than saying "The Government is out to get me, because I dared to humiliate them." I think Moore's feelings would have been hurt if they turned a blind eye to his illegalities.

So you believe your Iconic status should affect your severity of sentencing?


Besides, the Yankees suck.

I put "American Icon" in quotes because someone earlier in this post refered to them as that.

The point being...that if you break the law, you shouldn't be surprised if you are punished for it.

I like the Yankees, they are often such high favorites on the moneyline, if you would have bet against them on every game this season you would be in +++$$$ for the season so far!

It is illegal for an American to go to Cuba. You will be fined for alot of money. I don't know if they can send you to jail or not for it. But it's been that way for a long time.

Does anyone know what the chages are for Moore?

thanks for the information. I do not know what the charges are, but if charges are going to be filed, I just hope it will be done fairly.
His next movie may very well be on the justice system.
