I have to admit that I kind of liked Michael Moore’s first movie – Roger and Me.

That was the one where he talked about how screwed up General Motors was, and it was. So he told the truth and did it on an entertaining way. Then one night my wife told me she was talking our daughter Natalie to see a movie that was required by one of her school teachers.

It turned out that the movie was Bowling for Columbine and man did I hit the roof when I learned students were being forced to go see it by a left wing school teacher. It took me weeks to undo the brainwashing the two of them were subjected to that night.

If you don’t know, Bowling for Columbine was Michael Moore’s attack movie on the National Rifle Association and the highlight was when he ambushed Charlton Heston, who was losing his mind to Alzheimer‘s disease in which Michael Moore asked the poor guy stupid questions and then made funny faces when Charlton came back with nonsense answers.

Sick, sick, sick, and more importantly, untrue — just like his movie trashing capitalism. To begin with, to anyone who has taken Economics 101, Michael Moore doesn’t seem to understand anything about the capitalist system.

Recently, he did an interview with Bill Saporito for Time magazine in which Saporito asks Moore  a great question, he said — “But aren’t you really a model capitalist? You raise money. You hire people. You create a product and sell it to the public, bearing the risk and gaining the rewards that goes along with it.”

To which Moore replies:

“Capitalism would have never let me be a filmmaker, living in Flint, Michigan with a high school education. I was going to have to make that happen myself. My last movie, I gave it away for free on the Internet: Slacker Uprising. If I were a capitalist I would not give my employees health insurance with no deductible, which I do, including dental, and paid pregnancy leave. That’s not called capitalism, that’s called being a Christian and someone who believes in democracy, so that everyone should get a fair slice of the pie.”

And this is the big lie in Capitalism: The Love Story.

The whole movie is based on Michael Moore trying to sell you his warped definition of Capitalism! He is trying to say that capitalist short change their employees, which is bull. Any businessman who fails to offer competitive benefits in a free market loses his employees and thus loses his business.

But what’s worse is that he tries to claim that all of these bailouts are part of capitalism, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Bailouts are not capitalism – they’re socialism.

By the way, Obama didn’t bail companies out, we took them over, screwed the stockholders and fired most of the executives – that’s not much of a love story.

Capitalism is about exactly what Michael Moore has done in his life. He had an idea (perhaps a little warped) and he sold it to people who wanted to buy it. From there he built a multimillion enterprise – that’s capitalism!

On the other hand, Big Central Government Socialists like Obama love bailouts, so they can get their greasy mitts on limiting executive pay at financial services companies or force GM to build ugly little hybrids that no wants to buy. Pure Capitalists would have let all of these companies fail and have their parts bought up by other entrepreneurs – true Capitalists hate government intervention in business.

Calling Obama’s big government grab a bailout would be like having the government comes in and take your house because you can’t pay your mortgage, then give you pennies on the dollar and tell you that you can live there as long as you stop eating junk food, turn down your thermostat, and shut off FOX News.

Michael Moore has bundled up all of the bad socialist things going on in Washington, falsely labeled them Capitalism, and then made a movie claiming that we Capitalists love this bailout crap!

By the way, who gets a clean pass on all of this in Michael Moore’s movie about Capitalism? None other than the king of big government bailouts — Barrack Obama.

The True Audacity of Deceit

The True Audacity of Deceit

Consider the following facts:

According to an analysis of Federal Election Commission, the 2008 Obama campaign received $12.6 million from Wall Street “Securities and Investment” firms versus McCain’s $7.9 million

The top three corporate employers of donors to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Rahm Emanuel were Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and JPMorgan

Even after they went belly up, the employees of Lehman Brothers alone gave Obama $370,000, compared to about $117,000 to McCain. (No wonder Bush let them go under like a good capitalist should).

In fact, since 1998, the financial sector has given a total of $37.6 million to Obama, way more than McCain

Yet Moore recently told the Washington Post — that “Obama’s election was the best day of the past decade of his life” and he said, “Instead of us piling on him, he needs our support.”

It’s no wonder Moore’s latest epoch of deceit is a box office flop, it is his biggest lie ever.
