Michael Moore Owns Nine Homes
Free Beacon ^ | 7/22/2014 | staff

Posted on 07/23/2014 7:26:54 AM PDT by bkopto

The divorce between filmmaker Michael Moore and his wife is bringing many details to surface, including that the two own nine homes in New York and Michigan, according to the Detroit News.

By reaching a settlement, Moore avoids a trial that could have aired dirty laundry common in high-proile breakups and impugned his long-hewn image as a common man by disclosing details of his comfortable life.

His hit movies and best-selling books have begat a lifestyle far from most ballcap-wearing, duck-waddling denizens of Flint.

Moore and Glynn own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo that once was three apartments. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs their wealth at $50 million.

Unless all those homes are run by gerbils on wheels, quite a carbon footprint.

Let me be the first to say, as a person who was born and raised in Flint, Michigan that Michael Moore was not born in Flint, never lived in Flint, never went to school in Flint. He was born and raised in Davison where all the whites moved to get away from forced busing.

Perhaps, an up and coming avante garde film maker can stand outside all of his homes and make a film about “Michael and Me.” A tale of excess, enrichment and duplicity.

Why do all the “carbon footprint” preachers live in mansions, own multiple mansions and fly on their private planes all over the planet? The carbon footprint of the Middle Class family in this country is minuscule compared to that of these climate change frauds

In each of those homes, one room is a kitchen and the rest are bathrooms.

I think secretly Moore votes Republican, because he can only make money with Republicans in office.

The wife should stay married to him.

He’s one cheeseburger away from a fatal heart event, and then she would inherit everything.

But, but, he’s for the little guy because he’s just a little guy too. And he’s VERY concerned about preserving the planet. Haven’t you seen him wag his finger to shame you for driving to work to your $10 an hour job? You should walk or ride with criminals on the bus to work.

Shame. SHAME on all you little people for not doing your part to save the Earth for the extremely rich sultans like Mr. Moore....

He thinks Capitalism is disgusting and he doesn’t want any part of it. Here’s to his wife’s lawyer relieving him of some of his hypocrisy

Do as I say, not as I do!

Don't you know that Michael Moore is BETTER than the rest of us peons? He has to pretend that he's one of us or his scam may be revealed to the dullards that believe him.

“Obey Michael Moore! Viva government supremacy!”
~Mr. Moore's internal dialog

Maybe he can move to Cuba and work in a factory where things as so much nicer- according to him

She never had any kids for Moore (smart move), but has a daughter by a previous relationship. Also claims that she met Moore “when he was poor,” so I’m guessing there was no pre-nup. So, Mr. Moore better be prepared to hand over the keys to half of those homes, and a good chunk of his wealth, to boot.

Couldn’t happen to a “Moore” deserving individual.

And lets not forget wagging his finger at crony capitalists who take film subsidies. Never mind getting a million from Michigan taxpayers to make Capitalism, a love story.

And lets not pass over the fact that employees at his theaters make a living wage and have full medical benefits. It doesn’t matter that he took HUD money to open the theaters and staff them with volunteers with one or two actual employees to run movies he faces lawsuits from studios for unauthorized use.

I remember Pete Townshend took him to task because Moore wanted to use “Won’t Get Fooled Again” without paying for it.

If there weren’t a sucker born every minute, Moore would be living under a bridge in Traverse City with Madonna’s brother.

The Left’s “tax the rich” meme is really a call for increased taxation of high wage earners. I think it’s time to eliminate the income tax (an immoral tax on labor) and replace it with a wealth tax. Fifty percent (50%) of all wealth over $1 million should do it. That would have an interesting and hilarious effect on Hollywood and Wall Street and would have full support from all wage earners, high or otherwise.

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/millionaire-filmmaker-michael-moore-capitalism-did-nothing-me

September 30, 2009

CNSNews.com asked: “Critics may say, when they see this movie, Michael Moore has amassed a fortune of over $50 million, some have said and –”

Moore said: “Really? Are you kidding me? Seriously? Wow. Where did it go?”

(snip)

Moore said: “Well, capitalism did nothing for me, starting with my first film.”

“You know, I had to pretty much beg, borrow and steal,” he said. “The system is not set up to help somebody from the working class make a movie like this and get the truth out there.”

“In fact, in Fahrenheit 9/11 if you remember, capitalism, the Disney Corporation, tried to kill that film—tried to make it so that people couldn’t see it,” said Moore. “My book Stupid White Men—Harper Collins tried to kill that book so that people couldn’t see it. It’s only because I put the light of day on it and told people what was going on did people get the chance to see these things.”

(snip)

“Look, you know, I mean, I make documentary films,” said Moore. “So, clearly, I’m not loaded in the way you described. But I do well, obviously because my films do well.”

“So, that means I have an extra responsibility to make sure I spend my time trying to make things better for the people that don’t have what I have, right? I mean, everybody should do that,” he said.

I once met Rhonda the Rabbit Lady, one of the stars of his first film Roger & Me. She was slinging hash in a Kmart cafeteria.

Obviously Moore does not believe in spreading the wealth around.

Adam Baldwin smacked Moore on twitter the other day. Some 25 odd years after Baldwin’s first big role in Full Metal Jacket, he’s still working. 20 years after Moore’s only Hollywood movie, he’s reduces to carnival barker scamming the rubes.
