    Two secular proverbs come to mind:

    He takes his money to the bank in a front end loader.
    He cried all the way to the bank.

    I don't know too many people conservative, moderate, liberal, etc that take Michael Moore seriously outside of California.

    Ironically though "capitalism did nothing for me" it is precisely because of capitalism that he can make his movies.

    Unfortunately, the one group with which Moore does have credibility...has seen to it that this pinhead gets waaaay too much publicity.

    You got that right! Talk about an ungrateful little cuss...

    ...OK, an ungrateful "big ol'" cuss... :D

    And just exactly what do you weigh? Are you morbidly obese?

    BTW, I have a lot of respect for Michael Moore and look forward to seeing his latest film.

    Um...(wow, I can't believe I'm having to explain this...) you see, Tinytim was pointing out that Michael Moore, because of his obesity, really can't claim the moral high ground when it comes to lecturing anyone regarding healthcare.


    And as long as truthfulness, civility, and the ideals that made America great are discounted...I'm sure he's the best director since Roman Polanski.

    Robert and others are actually going to contribute to Moore's use of capitalism to make a living peddling propaganda to the weak minded.

    Now I get why some people can't drive while listening to music...
    Some can't even walk while chewing bubble gum...

    Logic must be a rarity amongst liberals...
    Or was that statement too hard to follow...

    Let me put it another way, so that the most ignorant liberal among us can understand...

    Liberals are idiots.

    Michael Moore: "Capitalism did nothing for me."

    My response: "Neither did Jenny Craig, charm school, journalism class, or 8th-grade civics."

    I saw a picture on your church website of you and your family. When it comes to overweight, you certainly have no room to talk!

    Here's a website you might find useful.

    http://www.oa.org/

    I take being called an "idiot" by the likes of you a badge of honor!

    Did I call you an idiot? I don't recall doing that... I called Michael Moore an idiot... and In post 13, all I said was "I think I found another way of saying "Idiot"... but I didn't say what that way was... I had just finished reading the post before mine which said "Weak Minded" That's another way of saying "idiot"...

    BTW.. .I LOVE IT!!!.. you are the second person in my last 6 yrs here that have resorted to referring to my weight and personal features when they were losing an argument!! I am just glad you didn't call me ugly!!! Whew.. that would have drove me to tears... boo hoo hoo.....

    The first one was in 2004.. and told me I should check out Dr. Adkin's diet.. So I took his advice.. and gained 50 lbs... LOL...


    He was banned....

    I really hope you get to stick around...
    You're fun to play with!...

    LOL

    OK, Now back on track after detouring for our commercial break for Overeaters annonymous... LOL
    (BTW, I personally like Weight Watchers... It would work if could stick to it... :) )

    Which is why I am not lecturing about healthcare...

    The way Michael Moore is....

    That is what I am trying to say...

    It would be like Jessica Simpson being a spokesperson for Mensa!
