It's funny, isn't it? A two million dollar house? Ooooooh, so posh.

Nothing at all like a fourteen trillion bailout though, is it?

I'd say go for it, but i know you're far too lazy to actually have a go at it. Hey, prove me wrong. Let's see how Sonnnnnnnny-style journalism works

I dont like pandering.....honestly.

But it would be a good film if I did.

Opening scene..............Roseanne Barr,playing herself.

I take her to OWS NYC,to get the crowed fired up.

"I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay… back anything over 100 million in personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of 100 million dollars and if they're unable to live on that amount then they should go to the reeducation camps, and if that doesn't help, then be beheaded."

The crowd goes crazy!!

Then I hand out blankets......cause it gets cold at night.

First day of shooting ends...........(not literal) Directors laziness personified.

Go home,and eat my way to Michael Moore's level,cause that what Fat Americans do...............

What I find MOST astonishing is that hypocrisy didn't ruin Al Gore's career, and it won't ruin Moore's, I'm sure.

Michael Moore makes his money honestly, he creates films, people choose to pay to see them and buy them. He is not taking advantage of or manipulating the system.

If you worked or made films and your income made you a millionaire.. would you donate all of it to charity and live in a 2 bedroom apartment with your family? I highly doubt you would.

You should research his charity work and donations.

Since when do we condemn people for spending the money they earned in the way they want to? Should every successful person not spend their money? Should everyone live in the same size house? People don't want to support OWS because they think it has some socialist or communist agenda.. yet they criticize people like Michael Moore for their association to it because he's not living like he's in a socialist or communist country?

If Mr. Moore bought that house for $2M, he got an exceptional deal.

and BTW....the 1% he's complaining about are the ones with all the control....Mr. Moore has no control in America's finances.

He raised awarnessabout the big issues to millions of people, i say he deserves it.

I think the people against occupy and things like that are really stretching for an argument if they have to attack and individual person.

I agree with you. Michael Moore made his money exposing corruption and hypocrisy in America...he brought a lot of awareness to many through his films. He made some good money...and I say good for him!

Michael Moore has NO problem pimping out the masses for his "quick buck" agenda.
He is taking advantage of the Big Corporate movie studios who perpetrate in the very essence of greed.

Ironic,wouldn't you say?

Looking at the fat bastard, i bet most of his "donations" go to KFC and McDonalds

I never liked that guy. Most of his so called 'documentaries' have been proven to contain fake and staged footage, out of context things. He's CNN for conspiracy theorists, who more often than not are as stupid as the 'sheeples' they make fun of.

The 1% Produce Nothing of Value....

The Fundamental Difference between Michael Moore and the Bureaucrats and 1% is that Moore produces something of value in his documentaries and in educating the public.

Whereas the 1% contribute nothing of value but only take from the working public in the form of taxes and banking fees for example.

Michael Moore doesn't threaten the public with jailtime if they don't pay to go to see his movies.

The Bureaucrats certainly do threaten you with violence and/or jailtime if you don't pay them their demands for part of your wages (called income taxes) or their Banking fees.

Your Bank will extort your money from you in the form of penalties and fees and even ruin your credit rating if you refuse to pay them.

Michael Moore doesn't hold a gun to anyone's head to view his movies.

Granted Michael Moore does own a nice home to show for his work but relatively speaking we also pay our political blood sucking leaches called Politicians quite well for doing what ?

Only Making more laws to extract more money from those that work and produce something of value in order to support the Bureaucratic system run by those who do not produce anything of value ?

This is the basis of the attacks upon people such as Moore simply because he speaks the Truth about those that don't want to hear it or have the TRUTH revealed.

Until Moore is the COE of a bank selling fraudulent mortgage backed securities, crashing the economy, then taking tax dollar bailouts to assign himself a record bonus, he is not the 1%

you guys can keep trying this, it just gets more sad and pathetic the more you try.

Watch bowling for columbine, or any episode of "the awful truth" and remind me again how he's so evil? Is it the episode where he goes to bat for a man who is dying without a pancreas transplant and his hmo refuses to pay for it? And, for the record, Moore GOT him that pancreas and saved his life.

no one is asking you to like him, but your pathetic smears against him, and OWS (they have never supported the ridiculous crap you guys keep saying) aren't working.

Instead of attacking someone loosely affiliated with them, or even OWS, why don't you explain to us how the system isn't rigged, how the system isn't corrupt, and how AWESOME the markets are right now.

Everything Moore does is hypocritical.

He's a grossly overweight, slob of a hypocrite.

I dont really like the guy or the movies he makes. Hes probably working for the Goverment but hes not %1. A couple million dollars is not %1. We are talking about the familys witch own most of the worlds wealth. A couple million dollars is nothing today.

Michael Moore makes films for profit. From where I'm coming from he's in the 1 % and I'm pretty sure those who pay to see his movies aren't. How is he different from Disney and Spielberg et al? To me he's one and the same.

What an inane post.

Seriously, what the hell? Hello, wake up, we live in a capitalist society. People (including Moore) wouldn't have it any other way. Not a single OWS participant considers moving to North Korea, and I'm not even sure about France.

I know a guy who works his butt off, he's a contractor, goes to work at 5:00 am and supervises a large project. He makes a lot of money, and hey, he does it for profit! According to your "logic", he's the "1%" and evil. Bleh...

Making anything for profit does not mean that you are not fair or incapable of thinking.

None of us can pretend to know what's in someone else's heart and mind. Michael Moore could have ulterior motives, he may want to piggyback onto OWS just to line his pockets with more cash simply through feeding into people's paranoia. He may be a vocal OWS proponent because he's preparing his next blockbuster and his protesting will make great footage for it. Or he may legitimately support the movement. The point is no one knows, just like know one knows what's in the hearts and minds of any of the "1%" of which Moore clearly belongs. The protestors have been adament that the 1% are the "rich elite", but now that Moore has been outed as one of the rich elite then suddenly there are exceptions to the definition. "WE HATE THE 1%!!! Except Moore, he's OK! Oh and Johnny Depp, I really like his movies! Heck, let's just give all the movie stars a free pass, so now, we hate the 0.5%!"

Michael Moore did not invent that giant computer game called "Mortgage Backed Securities", neither he played it for a few year accumulating hundreds of millions of dollars in the virtual casino. He didn't quietly kill the Glass-Steagall act, which provided more leverage for the gamblers. And guess what, these gamblers did their gambling with your money. And when the casino went bust, they still kept their ill-gained fortunes.

Anyone who doesn't get this does not have business talking about Moore being in 1% or whatever.

I LOVE Michael Moore

funny thread.. he is doing somehing, even if just creating a debate about somehing... is alot more then anyone else in this thread.

posted on Nov, 17 2011 @ 11:10 AM
Really. I had to comment. Why are you bashing him at all? Even if he was the 1%, he still is in support of OWS. He showed his face. So much more than, I am sure, any people you "look up to" have done.

Hipocracy would be him calling it baseless and just a bunch of unemployed hippies, and then going and showing support, or vice versa.

People CHOSE to go watch his documentaries, which while deemed "controversial" by the media, are merely subjects that people were unwilling to face before, or simply too afraid to put in the public eye, so as to "disrupt" the status quo

I applaud him for supporting the movement. For realizing his DUTY as an American to restore our country.

BTW 2million mansion... you must not get out much, buddy. I am not from a wealthy family, but my average four bedroom 3 bath two story house is worth around 400k max. I have friends in 2 million houses. Not mansions, houses. Go up to any upper class suburb and you'll be seeing much much more than that. Also, that's a 2 million mansion in MICHIGAN. Not exactly the most expensive state to live in. Lovely state though especially up north, if I had $$$ I'd build me a fortress there.
