Michael Moore's next target: the next Pit Pirates' BBQ event.






This idiot will just continue to get more and more insane just to try to stay in the spotlight of those who are even more insane than he is because they believe the crap that spews out of his mouth.

i would guess that VP Dick Chaney would never let this happen. its always about someone else, never about these bumbling idiots that are running this country

A Letter from Michael Moore: 'Sicko' is Socko in Cannes!

May 23rd, 2007

Friends,

Well, as you may have read by now, our premiere of "Sicko" at the Cannes Film Festival has been an overwhelming success. The 2,000 people inside the Lumiere Theater were alternately in tears and laughing during the two-hour film -- and when it was over, they gave it a standing ovation that seemed to go on for nearly 15 minutes! Many came up to me and said (and critics seem to agree) that this is my best film yet. I don't know about that, and it seems weird to compare any of these movies in the first place. But I do feel safe in saying that I am very, very happy with this film and I can't wait to show it to you when it opens on June 29th.

Cannes is a crazy place. There are film lovers here from nearly every country in the world. And then there are the people in "show business." These dark forces have virtually ruined this art form (invented by the French and nurtured to brilliance by the country I call home). There are so many bad, awful films now and less and less people are going to the movies. Many who run Hollywood believe that the American people are too stupid to enjoy a film that respects their intelligence.

At the press screening for "Sicko," the Wall Street Journal reported that hardened reporters and critics wept. Even those who have been harsh to me in the past, or who have not agreed with my politics, were moved. Aside from my stated desire that "Sicko" ignite a fire for free, universal health care (and a larger wish that we, as Americans, do a better job of treating each other with a true sense of solidarity and respect), I continue to hope that I can make a contribution to the art of cinema and give people a good reason to get out of the house for a few hours.

At my festival press conference, the only negative word came from the Canadians. Two critics didn't like all the nice things I said about their health care system. Yes, Canadian health care has its flaws, but when I asked the two critics if they would exchange their health care cards for mine, they said "No!" Of course they wouldn't. Canadians live longer than we do and their infant mortality is not as high as ours. Their system is underfunded because their leaders have been trying to push for more American-style health care.

The rest of the week has been good and I am now on my way back to the U.S. The New York Post reported Sunday that the Bush administration, in addition to going after me for filming scenes in or near Cuba, may now go after the 9/11 rescue workers I took with me to get the medical care they were denied by our own government. I couldn't make up irony like this if I wanted to, and I will do whatever is necessary to defend the human right of these true American heroes to receive the medical attention they deserve.......

......I will soon have a special section of my website devoted to "Sicko." Until then, we'll move forward toward our June 29th release date. Hope to see you all there that weekend!

Yours,
Michael Moore

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

So this was trumped up? Oh I guess every country on the UN security council as well as just about every expert in the filed was in on this charade then. Listen everyone....EVRYONE....thought they had WMDs. Dems, Reps, dogs, cats, mice... and guess what? They did. They didn't have the nuclear precursors like everyone thought but they have caches of mustard(ps?) gas as well as delivery systems. Oh but that doesn't get widespread media coverage does it.

An opposing viewpoint from Kyle Smith:

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

I went to see this yesterday. You can't help but walk away feeling that our system needs some serious help. I know that nobody's system is perfect, and yes Moore is giving us a one sided view, but it still doesn't change my thinking that healthcare should not be handled by private industry. When companies are profiting from providing care for others, I think that's a seriously flawed system. Greed corrupts everything, and it's clearly corrupted our healthcare system.

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

He's a jackass, always has been, always will be. EVERYTHING can be better, no matter what it is, so he makes money off of telling people that things need to be better, but is nowhere to be found when things actually need to be fixed. Not to mention the fact that he lied left and right in that Farenheit 911. (for those that saw that, you really need to see farenhype 911)
I'm sure this has already been said, but his ass should be in jail for going to cuba. He broke the law ON FILM. Throw the book at him boys!

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

I just paid my water bill. Now, water is the most basic of human needs, so if healthcare is a "right" and should be "paid for by the government" ("free" to the less economically astute among us) then surely water should be as well. Ditto food, heat, and in certain areas AC (we can't have grandma falling over from heatstroke). Sex is a basic human need or "right". I expect Hillary to do something about that as soon as she is elected. Well, not her personally, but perhaps a voucher for the Bunny Ranch or something. Those greedy prostitutes, making money off of a basic human necessity. Down with hos and HMOs. And these constant Bear attacks. I am so sick of these constant Bear attacks.

I did see Columbine (forgot the actual name) and farenheit 911, both I saw for free cause my friend had it...I would never give money to that jackass. There is no doubt he has no intentions of helping people. He is more interested in twisting things and making a slew of money. But hey, if you want to give money away to see lies and a person twist issues, more power to you.
