Moore ends the message off by saying he'll talk about a committed "Felony" that happened against the film. He's set to reveal it in the next week or
so. I assume there is a lawsuit being drawn up then. Perhaps based upon the new whistleblower testimony.
To the Moore naysayers, I'd say that you color your perception of his films by your politics and not by the substance. Michael Moore had the balls to
go against the producers wish and keep the criticisms of Hillary Clinton and other Dems in the film. In his interviews he's also shared his huge
disappointments with his interviewers about Obama. He's not an apologist for the Dems, but whacks both sides for their inability to support the people
that brought them into office.
For those that think healthcare under Moore's plan or Obama's is pure socialism I would have to say I only partially agree. I'd prefer a private
system like the Japanese that only has cost controls, but allows private system insurance coverage. That said, the Insurance companies in the USA rule
the land and have not/will not compromise, making it necessary to go the govt. route. Make no mistake, the new system under the govt. is still a
monopoly and offers no competition, but at least more people are kept in the coverage pool. Because the Insurance companies watered down the
Healthcare reform, we won't have anything close to what Moore was suggesting in his film and we're worse off for it. The naysayers should be happy
because the Insurance companies got to write our coverage in the new plan.
And a special note to the people who drone on about how our govt.spends this or that on social programs and Healthcare; We've spent far more on the 2
so-called wars where the Trillions could have supported Healthcare, Social Security and more for the next 25 plus years. If you hate the idea of a
base level help for certain services, then keep the fire dept. from saving your burning house, don't accept public education for your children, don't
call the police when someone has your family held hostage, don't let corporations leverage their lobbying to get their taxes down to near zero (you
know you can't do that), and so on.
If you want to keep people in this country weak and penniless, just keep up attacking social services. No other advanced country pays as much for
heatlhcare (we pay 2x more for less coverage) or offers so little to it's people like us. And you know what, those countries will bounce back faster
than us from this current recession/depression and kick our financial butt. So unless you want to cut back on the unnecessary wars and the extra
unecessary military spending that would allow us to afford basic social services without question, then please dont waste my time complaining about
