Mr. Moore: How much do you actually know about what you're talking about?
Yes, Michael Moore, that scion of dishonest editing and legendary corpulence has told a crowd of cheering Lilliputians that they have awakened a "sleeping giant".
Protesters in Madison have "aroused a sleeping giant" in the national fight for workers' rights, filmmaker Michael Moore told thousands at the Capitol Square on Saturday, as rallies opposing Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposals wrapped up their third week. "Right now the Earth is shaking and the ground is shifting under the feet of those who are in charge," said Moore, the Oscar-winning maker of "Bowling for Columbine," whose documentaries also include "Fahrenheit 911" and "Capitalism: A Love Story." "America is not broke ... Wisconsin is not broke," Moore said. "The only thing that's broke is the moral compass of the rulers."
Like nearly everything else, Moore gets this all completely backwards. The country is broke. Many of the states are broke, and the "sleeping giant" they have awakened is the American taxpayer, who is expected to pick up the tab for the large living of those in the public sector.
Mr. Moore may be shielded from the unpleasantries of unemployment and government spending run amok, thanks to the millions garnered from his fauxcumentaries, but if he would ever crack open a book or a newspaper (anything but another package of Ho-Ho's), he might learn that spending more than one takes in leads to poverty...being "broke", in the vernacular. His favorite president has spent the country to the near brink of disaster, pushed farther and faster by pandering to the "Green" Wing of the Democrat party.
Moore is clearly either delusional in his grasp of the current Obama economy and mood of the taxpaying public, or he's testing the waters to see just how brain dead his fans are, to gauge how far removed from reality his next fauxcumentary* can be and still make money.
* Fauxcumentary: Art form developed by Michael Moore, using dishonest editing to propagandize whichever cause he feels will make him the most money. Sometimes abbreviated "Faux cu".
