Michael Moore to Obama: ‘Show some guts,’ arrest S&P head
The Washington Times ^ | 8 Aug 11 | Victor Morton

Posted on 08/08/2011 2:14:11 PM PDT by seanmerc

Liberal firebrand Michael Moore called on President Obama to respond to the U.S. credit downgrade by arresting the leaders of the credit-ratings agencies.

On his Twitter feed Monday, the Oscar-winning film director also blamed the 2008 economic collapse on Standard & Poor’s — apparently because it and other credit-ratings agencies did not downgrade mortgage-based bonds, which encouraged the housing bubble and let it spread throughout the economy.

“Pres Obama, show some guts & arrest the CEO of Standard & Poors. These criminals brought down the economy in 2008& now they will do it again,” Mr. Moore wrote.

Michael Moore is of course, one of the biggest fans of Fidel Castro’s healthcare system. This advise of his simply follows the playbook of his hero.

Michael Moore and other liberals — when they don’t agree with you, arrest them, confiscate their property and throw them in the gulag (or kill them).

Scary if not funny.

He may have a point.

And there I always thought that it was George Soros, a Nazi collaborator, that bought dodwn the economy in time to throw the election to Hussein Sotero. :)

After all, Palin was leading until the economy crashed.

This is good.

Go for it Mikey - drop the mask off the left’s agenda.

The quickest road to leftist defeat is the exposure of the truth.

Arrest Moore and charge him with being criminally ugly. At least that charge would be credible.

The usual leftwing show trial crimes: dissent, treason, danger to the state.

It isn't that a clymer like Moore says such things, it's how many people will pick up on it including members of Congress.

Moore obviously agrees with most other people active in politics. From popular political speech, the more analytical readers see the beginnings of a banana republic.

This is hilarious, in a pathetic sort of way, yet it’s very good also. When the loudest moonbats are calling for drastic action and the Malignant Narcissistic man-child does his usual hide-out-on-the-golf course routine, his popularity will dive even further. The worse it gets the more shrill will be the leftist demands for ‘strong’ action. The fraudster who voted ‘present’ almost two hundred times is incapable of giving it to them. Their heads will explode in due course.

Michael Moore sez............."let's play Shoot the Messenger"!!

If Moore thinks this is all an ideological game, or that S&P have deliberately put a turd in Obama's punch bowl just to cause trouble, he's an even bigger idiot than he appears. We've gone way, way past ideology. From here on out this is simply about math. It's about when we arrive at the point at which our ever diminishing tax receipts are no longer able to cover the payments on our ever-spiraling debt and we default.

Moore better take a Prozac because this is not the end, it's just the beginning. S&P have made it clear that there are more downgrades coming unless we get to grips with this monster.

Not much different than some "conservatives" who disagree with the outcome of a jury trial and want the defendant dead.

Mikhail, you big, fat, ignorant sack of beans, it was Wall Street fat cats like Goldman Sachs who brought the economy down in 2008 and that led directly to Urkel's election and then those same evil fat cats ended up in his administration.

So, if Idiot Stick does arrest the S&P Big Wigs, look for them to end up in his administration.

What a moron.

Guys like Michael Moore can call themselves ‘progressives’ but they’re really totalitarians. This is a perfect example of how these communists think. Although the corpulent Mr. Moore has a valid point regarding S&Ps high rating of the mortgage-based bond markets, that is a separate issue, and he knows it. Urging the president to have some umpires of the economy (S&P) arrested and jailed because the presidents spending is making the U.S. economy less stable is indicative of the brutal totalitarian government people such as Michael Moore long for - right up until it happens and they are cast aside (jailed, property confiscated) because they are no longer ‘useful idiots’.

He can’t be that healthy.

Heaven forbid he’ll need a heart transplant and have to get on 0bammiecare’s ‘obesity’ waiting list because he’ll need to lose weight first.

But then again, he’s a privileged socialist 0 suck-up so he would get to
go to the head of the ‘waived’ line.

For those of you unfamiliar with politics or history, this advice is from the “dictatorship manual of operations.” Just so no one is left wondering about MM’s political philosophy.

There is a hard core on the left that would welcome a communist dictatorship (which they call call progressive)in the US because they think they would be among the ruling elite.Moore’s suggestion of dictatorial tactics by Obama lifted a corner of the curtain on their true aims.

“Michael Moore Sues for more money- who’s greedy now?”

Posted by NewsEditor on February 8, 2011

http://www.westernjournalism.com/michael-moore-sues-for-more-money-whos-greedy-now/

“At least multimillionaire Michael Moore didn’t have the chutzpah to sue Harvey and Bob Weinstein in a court in New York City where they’re based. Because I bet there’s no way a jury in the urban center that suffered through the attack on the World Trade Center twin towers would give Moore a penny. Today, Moore filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraud arising out of his audit of his controversial war on terror documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore is seeking at least $2.7 million from the Weinstein Brothers in what he claims are “rerouted” and unpaid profits. Why is it I think Harvey has finally met his match in Michael, and vice versa? The Weinsteins have already paid Moore $19.8 million for his backend profit participation in the movie.

Further, the bros are bitching that they were blindsided by the lawsuit: the Weinsteins for the past six months offered to go to mediation on what their reps are calling a “standard accounting dispute” — isn’t that what studios and producers always claim? — but Moore kept rejecting that. Even more bizarrely, as recently as last week, the Weinsteins were chatting with Moore about doing another movie together because insiders tell me that Moore next wants to direct a fictional feature film. (Of course, some partisan circles found the Fahrenheit 9/11 documentary to be claptrap exploitation while others saw it as courageous exposure. But I digress.)

Now the Weinsteins will have their Hollywood pitbull litigator Bert Fields defend them against Moore. “He made $19.8 million in backend profit on a 9/11 movie. And now he wants to beat up the Weinsteins for another couple of million dollars,” an insider complains to me tonight. “He redefines the term greedy for someone in this business who claims to be a Mr. Poverty indie documentary filmmaker.”
