It takes an act of congress to drag me to a movie theater...so probably not.

I'm sure I'll wind up downloading it when it hits the torrent scene. Like Ben, I have no desire to fund his coffers, though while I tend to disagree with Moore politically, I do find him to be a fascinating filmmaker.

Micheal Moore is a fat piece of **** and I would punch him in the throat if I ever got the chance.

I watched him on Leno the other night talking about this movie. He openly admitted to being extreme and other things in his previous films and did this one differently (with his same style, of course) and its getting pretty good reviews so far.

I will not, however, go and see it. I will wait for it to come out on HD and download it from hd-torrents.org.

Anyone need an invite to a great HD private tracker btw?

To create a 'new' democracy is the cure, eh?


Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...



Capitalism is not inherently evil.... Corporations, on the other hand....

I'm as far right as you can get but I have seen all of his movies and have "enjoyed" them all. F911 was a bit far for me but most were enjoyable. Bowling for C was a good flick other than the crazy leftist cartoon by the South Park guys.

FWIW, I liked Religulous too (but still haven't seen it's counter at the box office, American Carol). Bill M can kiss my *** but I enjoyed the movie...

Oh, I won't go near a theater (I think Indy Jones part 3 was the last movie I saw outside my house) but will download it or what it on HBO in a year.

I am not a member of the super secret stuff. I pay too much for my own servers to pay for membership for other people's servers (although I do appreciate the access).

FWIW (never came up before now) in 1999 I was $125,000 in debt in my internet business. I have definitely paid my dues for "online communities" since I started building them 18 years ago. I swore I would never spend another dime on them and I have to stick to my guns. I contribute in other ways (i.e. posting links on here) <G>:

Like many, Moore confuses free market capitalism and Corporatism.

The latter is government/corporation collusion in the guise of "regulation".
The investment banks such as Goldman Sachs make their profits by being able to access money close to the point of creation by the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve Act was written by 7 representatives of the largest Wall St. banks of 1910, in order to enable cartelization.

Giving more power to the government or the FED to "regulate" these banks is simply giving more power to the fox that's guarding the henhouse.

The government and the FED both decided that certain politically connected banks were "too big to fail". How is that free market capitalism if the taxpayer bails you out when you screw up due to risky business?

Exactly. Moore is just a profiteer. The only movie of his I've ever seen is Roger and Me, and I won't see another one of his pieces of garbage.

We're all "profiteers", even employees. That's what he doesn't get.

The problem is when government writes "regulations" which are actually favorable to the big corporations and detrimental to smaller companies. Imagine if FM and BEGI wrote, then lobbied their Congressworms for the "Turbo Safety Act" which makes it illegal to sell or install a turbo system that hasn't undergone $20,000 worth of "safety testing". That ain't free market capitalism, that's Corporatism. But that's exactly what Moore is railing against, and he mistakenly believes more government control over everything is the solution. Free market capitalism is about competition on a level playing field.
