Moore: Obama Should Use Power Over Auto Companies To Kill Cars, Replace With Mass Transit
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/24/2011 6:29:48 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Want to know how socialists think? Check out Michael Moore on MSNBC this evening, wishing President Obama would use the government's power over the auto manufacturers to . . . kill the internal combustion engine.

As everyone knows, politicians and pundits know more about the market than billions of consumers. You don't want to ride the rails? Tough. Watch Moore make his government-knows-best suggestion to kill the engine of progress to Larry O'Donnell this evening.

If Detroit goes under because of this moronic idea, where will Michael Moore get any inspiration for his movies?

No. If you read the headline closely it says “combution” engine. I think if all we have is an internal combution engine it’s already dead. IMHO

Someone like him will never croak. I bet all his arteries are clogged and he still functions and pollutes the air.

And where will he get a vehicle to haul his big fat lardbutt around? As Paul Bunyan would have measured it, his butt is probably at least 4 axe handles from border to border!

I despise liberal a$$holes who think that they know better than everyone else. But then, that describes most liberals.

And pigs like Moore who suckle at the government teat will be the only ones able to afford cars. That should keep us filthy peasants in our place.

Anybody ask Moore how many miles of rails he’s ridden in the past ten years?

I thought not.

The worst part is that the sack of steaming crap knows how many of us there are in flyover country (Outside the reach of mass transit)

great...the time it would take me to get 4 busses to work and 5 busses home, and the 90+ minutes it would take in a single direction would add significantly to the length of my workday and subtract equally from my family.

Who suffers? certainly not fatboy.

So screw you Moore

What a brillant idea from the great thinker of our times! What on earth would we do without such genius to guide us? /s

So, Mr. Moore, when can we expect you to give up your vehicles? /crickets/

He’s chosen to remain in Michigan and infect our state. A little real estate in his neck of the woods is pretty pricey.

The problem is not a lunatic like Michael Moore. The problem is that the media has created Michael Moore. He's basically a stupid nobody. But the MSM has created this wretched creature. He's a big, fat, hypocrite and in a sane country we wouldn't even know his name because he's so inconsequential. But we do know who this pig is because he has been trust upon us by the MSM.

The media is the problem.

So Moore’s initial claim to fame was “Roger and Me” about GM laying off auto workers. Now he advocates policies that will result in the layoff of every auto worker in the country.

Obama should use his power to force Moore to loose 200 lbs. to help save fuel, energy, etc. on harvesting the extra hundreds of acres it takes to feed him.

I find it interesting that someone who launched his career making a movie criticizing GM for almost wiping out Flint and much of the rest of Michigan would now want to finish the job.

Actually Moore’s first movie was a real Hollywood movie called Canadian Bacon.

He’s mouthing a real sharp stick the Left has in their armory, out of view. In my municipality, the Leftist ruling class has an on the books, in your face statement of intent: “we want commuters out of their cars.” You won’t hear Obummer say this before 2013, but if he’s re-elected you’ll then hear him say he wants Americans out of their cars.

Nope I was wrong. Canadian Bacon was 1995 and Roger and me was 1989.

As an experiment, deny Michael access to anything produced with the
aid of an internal combustion engine. Six months should get the
message across...if he survives.

Yeah, I’m sure Old Tubby rides mass transit all of the time. Just like Barbara Streisand hangs out her wash instead of using a dryer.
