A new Moore film!

Capitalism: A Love Story premiers tonight and is supposed to hit theaters October 2nd. I'm looking forward to watching this. I'm generally a great fan of Michael Moore's stuff and I really think we need more muckrakers and askers of hard questions. Our recent experiences with the Shrubian misadministration and our current experiences watching Obama, like some half-hearted Don Quixote, failing to face the corporate windmills and create a miniscule change in a collapsing health system have made me increasingly convinced that the American people, like some raging alcoholic, simply haven't quite hit bottom yet and so aren't willing to admit that they've got a problem. Of course, just as alcoholics have a limited time to seek help before their liver and brain turn into silly putty, nations and peoples (or, for that matter, intelligent species) have a limited time to alter their trajectory. I'll be interested in seeing Moore's take on the problem.

as long as my taxes don't go up even further than they already have been...we will be the poorest country all around if we continue in this fashion...people, wise up!!!

The problem isn't taxes, but what we get for our taxes. We already pay a good portion of what other countries pay, but these other countries have free healthcare, free college, and free baby formula. All we get for our dollars is free hand-outs for war profiteers.

I saw previews for this and it looked interesting. I agree, we need more people asking the hard questions.

Karlo's right - What we get for our taxes is a major issue and needs to be looked at by the screaming lunatics at town halls.
