Michael Moore✔ @MMFlint

When our democracy is hijacked by Wall Street, the too-big-to-fail banks and the Koch brothers, then we are ALL in chains.

Never mind that the White House itself has chosen to double down on Vice President Joe Biden’s comment to a crowd in Virginia Tuesday that a President Mitt Romney would “put y’all back in chains.” Moore, Biden admirer and author of “Stupid White Men,” has deemed the backlash “made-up outrage,” picked up the tasteless metaphor and run with it.

When u finish college $100K in debt, YOU are in chains. When u are denied medical help, YOU are in chains. When u r evicted, YOU r in chains

When the avg. net worth of white households in this country is $110,000 and for blacks, it is $4,995, those black citizens are in chains.

The transparent race baiting of Biden’s slavery metaphor was bad enough, but worse still is how casually the metaphor can be extended, apparently with a straight face. Student loans are the equivalent of chains? Who fit those chains, exactly?

@MMFlint - By the time I graduate I'll be close to $200k in student loan debt. That's if my loans don't get pulled first. #WeAreInChains

The most uncomfortable chains are the ones you chose to apply yourself.

We all do it; we all regret it. Areas where we had control and made a poor decision.

When the government takes away your choices- that’a a whole ‘nother deal.

WHAT a hypocrite this man is. Look at the color of his skin, look at how much money he makes, and look at the size of that BELLY!

If we look at 3 goldfish in a fish bowl, two are skinny and one is over sized and fat. What can we assume is happening in there?

Michael Moore is a fat goldfish shouting out to its owner "FEED those two poor fish more you greedy scumbag!"

Hey MM - I am not in chains in any way, shape, or form. I know you elitists would like for us to feel like we’re in chains for this or that reason, and look to you-all as our salvation. FTS. I am free and no-one, not you, not your {expletive} socialist friends, no-one can change that. I am free and I have the means to ensure I remain free.

You're right. I read that and all I can think is "Waaa waaa. I was unlucky. I made a bad choice. I want someone {else} to pay to be my safety net and protect me from myself."

Hey lady, two thoughts.

First, suppose your hubby was wildly successful and along came the government and confiscated most of his earnings and redistributed them to whiners like you? Would you be good with that? Really? Because there are lots of people in the world who would love to make 60K a year. So you've already had that windfall. Start re-distributing the wealth you have right now. Still good with it?

Second. Get off your backside and/or get your hubby off his and make a change. Don't think anyone else is going to come along and fix your problems. Get another job, get a different job. Get yourself out of debt. Don't even try to complain that there are no good jobs out there. That's your boy hussein's fault now. He and the MSM created the sense of gloom and doom and drove this Country into a recession. His policies have deepened and prolonged the recession. There are jobs out there. Employed, even at minimum wage in a second job, is better than sitting on your ever-expanding backside on a couch. Work to better your lot in life.

After Lying About His Wealth on National TV, Michael Moore Admits He’s A One Percenter

By Noel Sheppard
October 28, 2011

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2011/10/28/after-lying-about-his-wealth-national-tv-tuesday-michael-moore-admits

It really is something when a man lies to cover up his lies.

I made the decision that I would never buy a share of stock (I didn’t understand the casino known as the New York Stock Exchange and I did not believe in investing in a system I did not agree with).

After all, in 2005, Peter Schweizer in his book “Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy” included a copy of Moore’s schedule D from one of his tax filings showing that the schlockumentarian at one point owned almost 2,000 shares of Boeing, nearly 1,000 shares of Sonoco, more than 4,000 shares of Best Foods, more than 3,000 shares of Eli Lilly, more than 8,000 shares of Bank One, and more than 2,000 shares of Halliburton.

Do all these whiners live in some alternative universe or on a different planet than I do? We all make choices as we travel along life’s journey. Some good ones and some not so good ones. But for heavens sake, can’t some of you people start taking responsibility for the consequences of your own choices and lives and quit trying to make it sound like “the man” or Wall Street or bankers or the Koch brothers or evil Republicans or someone else made you do it so now your are “in chains”?

Give it a rest people. Grow up. Take control of your own lives and quit expecting someone else, including the government, to solve you problems you, yourselves created. You stepped in it and you need to learn to wipe it off you shoes and move on. Geez!

‘Second. Get off your backside and/or get your hubby off his and make a change. Don’t think anyone else is going to come along and fix your problems. Get another job, get a different job. Get yourself out of debt. Don’t even try to complain that there are no good jobs out there.’

HAD a cousin in the same fix....one who litteraly never knew which end of a hammer to hold onto. He borrowed some money a miniscule amount, made the downpayment on a ‘fixer upper’ then had his friends teach him the fundamentals of carpentry and plumbing carpet laying...a little at a time as need be...he rented it out..used the proceeds to buy another one then another and so on. As you might imagine he’s out of debt ..as you may not imagine he now owns 26 units. I’m wondering if this gal’s hubby can’t or won’t do the same. Not sure if there is any physical or mental handicaps there but absent that...time to get a move on, kids! Hope this helps.

That's because the DemonRAT politicians YOU supported could care less about affordable college and decent jobs for American citizens. They spend all their time whining about passing the DREAM act so the "undocumented community" can attend college at cheaper rates than your husband, and then they can take his job thanks to affirmative action quotas.

Talk about liberal stupidity.

"student loans"

The uncomfortable fact is that most of these deep-in-debt students should have went to state-run tech schools where they would have had a much better chance of getting a job and virtually no debt to pay off. Most college degrees aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

Nobody made you go to a massively expensive private college. Nobody made you take out hundreds of thousands in loans.

Take responsibility for your own actions.

There are all kinds of free and very inexpensive training programs all across this country. Apprenticeships, the military, community/junior colleges, trade schools, etc. Right now trucking companies will PAY YOU to become a truck driver. That’s right, not only is tuition free, you get paid in training!! The military, of course, is long famous for that. The oil and gas fields in North Dakota, Texas and other states are SCREAMING for truck drivers and other workers. Hard Work U (College of the Ozarks) just requires students to do work/study. Most companies have training programs and tuition reimbursement. Teachers and servicemembers can get their student loans forgiven.
