nothing i can say that hasn't been said before, i know..... it's incredible watching facts and facts and facts and.... facts, then wondering wtf is going on  :confused:

i'm amazed Michael Moore hasn't been assassinated by the CIA or FBI, frankly.

It's amazing what context and clever editing can do...

It's fair to watch both sides of an issue, there is also a movie called fahrenhype 9/11 which is a direct response to fahrenheit 9/11.

Really, Moore is known for being sensationalist and playing with things...

it doesn't matter that much the order and edit choice, if the facts are striking enough. i'm not talking about ownership of companies etc etc, or even the usa/saudi money links, just the fact that bush spent the 7 minutes after toldbout the 2nd plane hitting, looking shifty and keeping on talking goats to a class of under-7s. is that leadership?  :confused:

I had already figured Bush our before Farenhite9/11 hit the stores. I knew he was playing the system when he got elected the first time.

I have a hard time dealing with Bush supporters.

The man's an idiot.

yes he is. the saddest thing is that outside usa, nearly everybody has figured that out, and treats all americans accordingly. we sorta decide that if you elect a fool as your leader, that makes you all fools.

thank god for the shroomery for giving me the other side of the coin - plenty bright folks here, but even you guys are exposed 24/7 to the us party line. sigh.

oh well, sorry to be a downer. :confused: :thumbdown:

"facts"

I'm very much opposed to Bush being the president of our country, but I can't stand Moore. He's hurting his cause more than helping it. Distorting the truth to make people see things how you see them is NOT how you wake people up and educate them about what's going on.

"Here people, here is yet more bullshit for you to devour so you can feel smart"

Doesn't matter who's making it or how it's slanted, it's still bullshit, and it's just as wrong

moore may be a bit of an over-zealous idiot at times.. which seems to detract a lot of people from taking his stuff seriously.. but regardless he brings up many many good points and facts. He's not afraid to do or say whatever.

I have to ask.. what things were taken out of context in F-911? The part where he goes to Iraq and the civilian woman is crying and screaming to god because the americans killed her whole family? What's so out of context? Or the part where he finds that woman who lost her son in Iraq, and she goes to DC to get answers and gets none? What's out of context? That IS the context. Bush family with Al-Queda? No distortion of facts there.. this is real life folks.

Sure... a lot of it is highly emotionally charged. And for good fucking reason. The man is trying to make a point. You may not agree with his style, or whatever.. but the issues he brings up are REAL issues. he's part of the yin to the yang of corporate media.. who likes to brainwash the populace with taking things out of context and clever editing, only in the other direction. Fox News much? About as fair and balanced as bill gates eating a feast in somalia in front of 300 starving people.

bottom line is.. Moore has balls, and he's out there doing his thing trying to get people to think. He may push some buttons here and there.. he may distort a couple facts.. and he may not be the smartest man in the world.. but so fucking what.. compared to what his opposition is doing.. he's mother fucking mother theresa. He's closer to the truth than half those douche bags on TV.

I just don't see how people can call moore a crackhead or whatever, when all he is doing is telling it like it is. People say he's twisting facts and shit to suit his own agenda. And what the fuck is the Bush administration doing exactly? Fight fire with fire motherfucker.

Not to mention farenheit 911 is pretty light. He had to edit out about half the stuff before they would let him release it... hence the release date kept getting pushed back for almost two years. F-911 barely touches on some important issues. There's another (foreign) movie like farenheit 911, that came out last year and supposedly goes into MUCH more detail about a lot of things moore left out. I can't remember what it's called though.

Moore > Bush

Then nearly everybody outside the usa is an idiot and a fool...  Only a little over half of the voting population of the US voted for him - less than that the first time.  Also, YOU can't talk - you've got Blair :wink:

bottom line for me.. is I respect Moore for doing what he is doing. I have respect for anyone that has the courage to go against the government like that. He's not perfect.. (who is?) but the man brings up good points and real fucking issues. And for everyone that says oh he's just trying to make money not educate people.. I call bullshit

http://marc.perkel.com/archives/000468.html

Also check out.. Dude.. Where's my Country?

He may be a bit cynical.. who the fuck wouldn't be after living in this country their whole life? but at least the man has a sense of humor. Does anyone remember in bowling for columbine when he went to the bank where you get a free shotgun when you open a checking account. He opened one and walked out of the bank with a shotgun they gave him. then he asked them.. do you think it's wise to be giving away guns at a bank? he does crazy shit like that to make a point. Pointing out irony and hypocrisy is sometimes the best teacher.. especially for other cynical fucks like me. I have a brain.. I can see through bullshit.. Moore has not brainwashed anyone. Bush is another story.

If it's propaganda.. well it's some pretty fucking good material. And it's anti-propaganda.


long live moore, and may 5 million others like him be spawned.

I have the fucking right to bitch and moan all I want. That's part of being American.

Some people don't have the option of leaving.

And some people don't want to just leave the country they were born and raised in..where all their friends and family are. They want to change it. That is also our right as Americans.

And you don't think the affairs of the US effects the rest of the world? think again.

I didn't say anything about it not affecting the rest of the world. I'm just saying bitching about it isn't going to solve anything. Everything that could have been said or thought about being said about Bush has already been said. So all I'm saying is that pretty much everyone is sick of hearing about it.

Do you live in the US?
Are you pretty much everyone?
I know I'm not sick of it. And I know I'm not the only one bitching.
Only thing I am sick of is this BULLSHIT we call a government.

So instead of bitching should I just shut up and go watch MTV, talk on my non-existant cell phone and go shopping at the mall? Become a good docile consumer citizen like they want me to be? fuck that. I'm going to speak my mind, and I'm going to keep doing it until it's heard.

And bitching isn't the only thing we do, ya know.

this is the exact attitude that perpetuates this madness. You have about 400 million americans saying.. I don't like it.. but there's nothing we can do about it. Yeah, of course there's nothing you can do about it if you don't do anything, and just accept that "that's the way it is" like a good conformed citizen. What can 500 million american citizens do? a fuck of a lot. But not when they are so docile and controlled and too caught up in their "busy schedules".. and getting that go-nowhere apathetic attitude.. "there's nothing we can do about it.. so why try." Bitching is the first step to doing something, and getting other people involved. Why look.. shirley knott made this thread, and she lives in the UK. Americans are not the only ones concerned with the fucksticks in office that are ruining lives. Bitching makes other people see that people are pissed off, for good reason.. on real issues. We can sit around jerking off all day if you want.. but that's not going to change my government.
