Filmmaker Says Capitalism Has Wrecked His Life
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 3 Oct 2009 | John Semmens

Posted on 10/04/2009 12:21:07 PM PDT by John Semmens

Though he has profited by over $50 million selling his product in the marketplace, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore contends that capitalism hasn’t done him any good. “If I made all that money, where is it?” Moore asked.

While wags may jibe that there is ample evidence that Moore has put a large portion of his profits into augmenting his personal girth, Moore contended that “a system that allows a person to frivolously spend on items that endanger their health, like America does, victimizes people.”

Moore argued that “a socialist government like Cuba would’ve still let me make movies, but would also have provided the external discipline to save me from my vices. I’d have been able to become a big man politically without being allowed to become a big man physically.”

Anybody but Michael Moore, I’d say this was satire.

“If I made all that money, where is it?”

The cash registers of McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and Dunkin' Donuts know where it went.

So Mikey please do go on the Cuba diet. Whatever they’re eating in Cuba, be it rice measured by the teaspoon or whatever, you eat that too. Even better, do it in Cuba.

The rest of us American fatsos will have to look to Weight Watchers and the like.

Manufacturing Dissent remains a watershed film by LIBERAL documentary producers fed up with Michael Moore's lies, self-serving manipulations, and a clinical psychosis to squash all dissent to his ways.

Does Moore keep his money in a coffee can in the back yard? If not, he is a capitalist by extension and a pig of the first order.

If this yahoo is so unhappy here, then there is nothing stopping him from leaving our capitalistic country and going to cuba. Go on fat boy, if this place is so bad, then get the hell out. For the most part, it works for us as long as the govt. gets the hell out of our way.

Oh yes, the author is a long time favorite here. When he started a few people mistook his articles for news so he now puts a warning label on his posts.

However, the reason this is such great humor is there is a large element of the con man to Moore's self serving posturing. Moore is a hypocrite and a fraud pocketing 10s of millions from gullible fools by hysterically whining all the time about the “evil rich”.

He has meet the enemy, and he is it.

Poor fat baby. In Africa he’s be starving (his big belly would be only a swollen stomach from starvation) and in Germany he’d be told to go exercise for a month. In any other country he’d stay where he started—son of a working class father growing up to work for the gubermint or the factory. Neither of which would make him rich and he would be taxed even more to the max then he is now.

Well, let's see...

- Food to feed his fat arse.

- Continually re-clothing his increasingly fat arse

- Taxes on what little is left

Only a fool continues to work at something where he isn't making money. Perhaps he should find another endeavor... like a job.

Another Home-Run "Semi-Satire" from AzConservative.

If only Michael Moore grew up in the anti-capitalist paradise of Cuba!

Is this how he explains that he is a big fat pig? Capitalism? Put the spoon and your fingers down Michael. Step away from the quart of ice cream. No one’s to blame for your hateful, fatness other than yourself.

"In response to a letter Michael Moore wrote about CNN's reporting on his documentary "Sicko," a CNN spokesperson released the following statement:

"It's ironic that someone who has made a career out of holding powerful interests accountable is so sensitive to having his own work held up to the light by impartial journalists, as we did in our examination of 'Sicko,' " the spokesperson said..." CNN's Response To Michael Moore's Sicko

What "wrecked life"....The only wreck I see is a slovenly, fat, self loathing son of a bi-ich.

Moore, as far as I know lives most of the time in the United States...still the greatest nation on the face of the earth.

People here are free to choose to be happy or unhappy. It don't take money to be happy...it don't take fame to be happy...all that is required is for you to decide to be happy, no matter what.

It is clear that Moore has the resources and intelligence to make a good living and be happy.....so the only conclusion that can be made is that he made the conscious decision to be unhappy.

Too bad for him....it has to be miserable life going around looking like a bum and trashing your own country every chance you get.

...as for me, I choose happiness.

My grandchildren love to come to Gerts and my home(married 51 years yesterday)...we have a small amount stashed for a rainy day...I am still working and intend to until I fall out of my chair at work..

What Moore does or does not do makes no difference in my life, or that of my family. I intend to arrange my affairs so that nothing Obama and his merry band of gay blades do affects us much.

Yes, I choose happiness, and I would pray that Michael Moore would also choose happiness, and to join us who love God, our family and our Country.

Moore wants us to “spread our money around” even to groups we can’t stand and disagree with ( like ACORN ) - I want to know what Rush’s take is on Moore’s millions? My guess? Not a dime./

If he was born in Cuba he wouldn’t be fat! there might be some truth to that because he would NOT have had money or excess food and he would be working in the cane fields his entire life. He might be lean and hard. Can we ship him to Cuba on a raft or would the currents not take him there?

I’d have some tiny amount of respect for him if he gave away all of his worldly goods to others. Not going to happen of course.

Yes, all the indulgences America’s poor have experienced will soon come to an end as the anti Americans make them too poor to waste time pretending to be poor, but they’ll have people who care, like Moore.
