For his movie Capitalism a love story... he used non union workers that didn get health care when he could have used union workers! And the teachers union wouldn't take his free tickets in protest... yet there he is in WI! LOL
I have not yet seen the movie, Capitalism a love story, want to.
His Movie sicko, Moore is an example of his point of America physical poor health since more people are dying of obesity than starvation in the world and America are the leader in obesity
I am sure the fat cat rich do not give a dam for the poor and politician protect every conceivable evil known to mankind, as all government are corrupted in degrees. I think Government should more afraid of the people like many places in Europe rather than the other way round like in the USA. I look at Moore as an American hero caring for most people in America, what’s so Hypocrite about that?
I think liberalism is greatly linked to our imagination and the great unknown and conservative is like greatly link to our ego self. Blending the two is a healthy mix and balance, like the natural world and universe expanding and contracting.
Lady love as you notice many people here disagree with you because the great conflict separating natural sources rather than flowing with what is natural in all human being,
The absence of reason of both balance of liberal and conservative is evil
No liberalism is linked to fantasy... the idea that you can elect someone to care for you and serve all of mankind in building a Utopian society without corruption and without force or abuse of power! Reading that it even sounds like a dream unreal imagined. Conservatism is reality it is doing what comes natural fulfilling your destiny its following your dreams and not giving up when you fail... its knowing as long as you're free anything is possible... dreams and reality I can balance fantasy is better left to stories around the campfire.
My dream would be to experience Conservatism liberalism blend. I like your poems yet I don't understand your one-sidedness. When China surpasses the USA for innovation in this decade maybe then you will understand better balance of both and how the people are the true leaders.
Hollywood is the main featured at many of these International world trade shows as American culture as it is a rip off from everyone else’s cultures. What get ignored and was the greatest genocide in human history, the early native Americans in which is the real mystic culture.
Royal China was been civilized and inventive for 10,000 years vs. USA 500 years.
It's not likely to happen for me Ritchie. I have too many people to care for to think about that....unless it happens when I'm 65 or so...which is not beyond possibility.... But, for everybody to be successful, there has to be equal opportunity. And we are far from that.
Ah, fine words Bill but you know that's all they are. Does the mother get two jobs? What about the ill and unfit? What about people who live in areas where there isn't enough jobs for one per person?
So, your paper is full of job postings every day, how many are paid enough for a lengthy commute? How many suit the qualifications of the unemployed? You know we had exactly this debate in the local pub! No shortage of jobs, look the paper is stuffed with them! So, we went through them all and looked for another job for the doubter, a qualified electrical engineer. How many did we find for him? None, even discarding his qualifications we only found a handful of jobs, the chance of him getting any one of them was virtually nil, as he would be over qualified or too old for them.
But that isn't really my dispute is it? Of course it is better to have any job and only erode saving by $25 dollars a week than have no job and erode them by $50 dollars a week. But why should anybody be put in that position when the crony capitalist bosses are making more off them than they make themselves? You don't honestly think it right that somebody should have to have two jobs to make a basic living wage, do you?
But what about those who don't have the benefit of a good job and depend on the government to make up their income to a living wage? You can either pay through the government or end up paying more for your burgers.
If you aren't prepared to bankroll the low paid, why ever do you expect them to bankroll you?
Lets turn your question on its head and ask how much of anybody else's earnings do you think you're entitled to?
Don't feel sorry for me...I grew up nice middle class with good schools and a nice neighborhood. Feel sorry for the little kids who live in poverty, with crumbling, neglected schools, and having to avert gun-fire on a daily basis. Poverty is the scourge of America, and unfortunately, the only thing I see happening is MORE money being taken away from people who really need it. More lousy schools allowed to crumble. More kids allowed to just harden, because they have nothing to loook forward to. But private schools are getting a boost. And wealthy incomes are getting tax breaks.
We are destroying this place because we worship money. And we all bow down to the rich and powerful.
Gvt money IS the "peoples" money! You pay it in exchange for living here, don't you? Some people want to use it to enhance the wealthy...Republicans. Some people want to use it to help the dis-advantaged...Democrats.
Your side seems to think that everybody was born with a silver spoon in their mouth...it's not so. And living in the slums of a city is far different than living in a nice cushy suburb, with all the advantages.
It is my view that the "peoples" money should be spent to make things better for society as a whole. NOT just line the pockets of millionaires, as in Banks, Big Business, Corporations, ALL of whom take a LOAD of the people's money everyday.
Bill, if government taxes were to be abolished tomorrow you don't really believe that the cronies club would let you keep it all do you? Don't forget, if you didn't pay taxes that were distributed to the cronies they would have to make up the shortfall in income.
If you keep electing liberals its never going to happen! We have to go back to what made us great and that is smaller less government less dependence less entitlement more competitution innovation savings investment and the resulting prosperity for us all!
"My dream would be to experience Conservatism liberalism blend. I like your poems yet I don't understand (...) one-sidedness. Its generally called divide and conquer. A thief in the house and the household is catching on. So the thief starts everybody fighting among themselves, such that they forget they are being pilfered.
Michael Moore tweeted recently that he thinks snipers are cowards. Here's a couple of links to some valid news sources that'll explain it far better than I could:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/1 …...
