Health care system in the United States totally licks balls.

Don't get too worked up over what Michael Moore says. There is undoubtedly some truth to it, but he has shown himself time and time again to be an accomplished bulls***ter and word mangler. He thinks nothing of splicing together footage from multiple speaches to make it appear that someone is saying something other than they were saying, if you catch my drift.

This is sensationalist entertainment, not investigative journalism.

He did something like this on his show TV Nation, however he wasn't alowd to say at the time that Cuba had a better servicce then America so was told to say that the Canadian version was better.

Michael Moore is just another doochebag who thinks he will make people change the world, but we should all just learn to live with the fact that we are killing the earth and there is no possible way to make every single person in the world change their life style. People who are rich don't give two s***s because aslong as they have a full bank account and can sit back in their $2000 leather chair and sip expensive wine, they think that their lives will be perfect until that lifestyle turns on them and bites them in the ass.

Kill The Rich.

Nope, independant. I support what I think is right. If it's a democrat saying it, so be it, if they're republican, same goes.

Fact of the matter is that pretty much everything fed through the media is incredibly biased one way or the other. The general public's idea of non-biased is "agrees with me, and is inline with what I believed anyway". People making money from film making recognize this, and give their audience what they want.

A truthful and non-biased account of anything would be bland and boring. Saying that the US healthcare system is bad is completely at odds with my own personal experience. Just a few months ago I went to my doctor with some unexplainable head and back issues. Within a week I had been checked out head to toe, including bloodwork, MRI, and spinal X-rays.

I'd love to see what would happen to the civilized world without the taxes that are being paid by the rich. Not to mention the fact that it's the rich that own and operate the companies that pay all the wages. Rich people are rich for a reason. Live with it.

Eh, I find his movies entertaining. I don't really take what he says as gospel or anything.

And this is the point. Michael Moore is entertainment, and when taken as such, harmless. The problem is that many take it as factual investigative journalism, and go away thinking that it's universal truth or something.

The man is saying what people want to hear, and making a s*** load of cash from it.

true, there's alot of money in preaching to the converted,
aside from that, alot of it seems like its propaganda fighting propaganda.

sacrificing integrity dosn't help a cause.

i enjoy the movies, hopefully at least it encourages people to go and investagate these issues and creates public awareness to a degree.

Good I hope it all is now sorted. I just said that because most americans I' have met agree with his views at least on gun control and G. W Bush. With what you said about the media being biased is true because of the reasons you mentioned but I was shocked at how cowed the media on both side of the Atlantic was during the second Gulf War whilst in this country at least being totaly against the goverment.

Just because what he says isn't popular doesn't mean it isn't so, i know for a fact that if you're sick and need medical attention insurance companies find some way to get out of paying for your care., or they (doctors,nurses) don't take care of you the way they should if you should have to spend time in the hospital. My b/f's mother almost got killed twice by incompetant nurses., and one hospital refused her treatment in the emergency room because her insurance wasn't affiliated with them. its all true.
