I use to like Michael Moore. I remember enjoying his book, Stupid White Men, which was about white men having privilege and high access in this life. I even helped his book sales by reading it to and from work on the bus back in 2003. It should be no surprise that most reactions to the book came from black men, especially when they found out the author was white. I would always hear, “I am going to get that book.” Most did not know anything about Michael Moore, but a few knew of his far leftist positions on the issues. I liked him for coming out for the little guy, while ignoring his far left bent.
Michael Moore, an oxymoron who worked his way into the millionaire ranks through capitalism, acts as if he is a struggling underpaid overworked line level employee. He is all for socialist/communist solutions to worker issues. Mr. Moore really thinks it is all right to just take other people’s money for any financial solution. It’s a national resource! Here is a snippet of his speech at the Madison, Wisconsin teacher/public union protest.
This country is broke and the states have terrific shortfalls in their budgets. Michael Moore is coming across like a people’s republic comrade. Who does not want the best education for children? But the money isn’t there and we have to do the best with what we have, not spending with what we do not have. We have to deal with money that is not there for employee benefits. We must redirect the course from the paths taken in the past that got us to the horrific economical state we are in now. After, Wisconsin and Ohio, my state of Pennsylvania is up next. Gov. Corbett just unveiled PA’s budget and as you can imagine, there are deep cuts. There are already Michael Moore thinking people in PA going into attack mode.
