This content is user submitted and not an official statement

When asked if he would acknowledge that he was rumored to be worth $50 million, and isn’t he part of the one percent, Moore replied, “I do very well.”

Cassimy: “How are you helping these people?”

Moore: “Because I do well, I want taxes raised on people who do well, including mine.”

Cassimy: “How are you helping these people with your $50 million?

Moore: “I don’t have $50 million.”

Cassimy: “That’s what it’s rumored you are worth.”

Moore: “Well, really. Is that what you do is sell rumors?”

Cassimy: “We’re asking you for the truth.”

Moore: “You’re just punk media is all you are. You lie. You lie to people. Stop lying to people. Stop lying.”

Cassimy: “Are you not part of the one percent?”

Moore: “Just don’t lie, okay?”

No thats it. I'm just glad that he supports the movement. Thats all I want and thats all I care about.

Great...so we can further define some of the one percent is ok and others are not.

[-] 2 points by moediggity (646) from Houston, TX 2 years ago

Ya'll keep talking as if we are here to blanketbash the "1%'ers" and we aren't even doing that. We are railing against the !% that are gobbling up all of the wealth,outsourcing our jobs and are bribing our politicians. Moore hasn't been guilty of any of that. Now Alec Baldwin on the other hand is an obvious attention whore. I don't accept his involvement because I will not accept someone that goes to OWS one day and then becomes the spokesperson for capitol one bank.

[-] 1 points by Joyce (375) 2 years ago

Hard to tell, who or what represents the one percent has yet to be defined.

well heres a quick example

Michael Moore=Ok Koch Bros=fuck them!

moores never shut down a factory or stolen my money from me or has propped up bs candidates to further his agenda.Thats about as succinct as I can get.

Great, then leave me and my $$$$$$ the fuck alone and we'll be friends.........because unlike m Moore, not only have i EARNED my money, but I employ a lot of good people who make more than a decent wage. So fuck off on wanting to tax my ass any more than I already am if you Are of that ilk.

[-] 1 points by moediggity (646) from Houston, TX 2 years ago

No one at OWS is asking for your money. You aren't even a 1%er. You never will be. I'm sorry, but the people that we are rallying against,as george carlin put it(if you need a reference) "the big club". And you and I will never be in it.You have never done anything to me so why do you keep thinking that I want anything to do with you? You need to know how the tax code works and who it is that we are rallying against. Just because you have money doesn't mean that we are "after you".

[-] 1 points by Joyce (375) 2 years ago

No, the reality is that my wife and I more than qualify as the one percent...and trust me, if you knew us, you would Never know it....just the way were are..And yes, many here espouse a vindictive way to resolve things...my favorite edict to turn to is progressive radio host Norman Goldman......his first broadcast on chicago 92.7 sent me on a path to vigorously fight blanket ignorance... On norms first show he repeated, with great zeal....."you make, we take"........that has stuck with me and resonated in a terrible way...so, I will defend what I have earned........by whatever means needed.....with no perimeters.....

Michael Moore made money putting out a product of value..The fuckers on Wall Street sold shit like it was gold to people who they intended to cheat out of their money...

There is a difference and all because you make 50 million a year and are part of the 1% doesn't mean you that you don't want to do something to help the 99%..If we aren't for the 99%, there won't be a 1%, because there won't be an America left. No one, even the 1% should want this country to turn into a banana republic. But that's where we are going..

I'm glad I can make someone laugh at my insane rantings...I guess what I'm saying is this: Once upon a time we were all Americans and we are all were in this together for the betterment of all the people of this country...It's not that way anymore..and it needs to be, for there to be an America...We are running out of time..

Please...if it is not apparent, than this conversation is more evidence of OWS stealing air.

[-] 1 points by nickhowdy (1104) 2 years ago

The air was free last time I checked..but I hear they are working on a solution to that...So Moore is part of the 1% but cares what happens to the rest of "society"..and your point is what?

[-] 0 points by Joyce (375) 2 years ago

Another example of an ill-defined movement.....who or what represents the one percent is whatever suits my argument best.....kind of like the s. walker shout- down in Chicago.....Per usual, I want to rewrite the laws, but established, common decency does not apply to me. This is exactly what will drive opinion away from OWS. Since our agenda trumps the rights of those gathered to hear Gov. Walker, we will simply disrupt and begin our immature rant. Why would anyone be proud of this video? It proves that a group can impose their agenda, forcibly?

[-] 1 points by nickhowdy (1104) 2 years ago

I thought it was great..Better than the speech Mr. Olive Pitts for eyes was going to give..Walker SUCKS!

[-] 1 points by nickhowdy (1104) 2 years ago

Oh, I see, you want a definition of the 1%...Sorry it is so ill-defined...I'm guessing that you are in the 1% and have actually "earned" your money..Good going..

When:

  1. People make money by selling a product presented to the buyer as having value while secretly knowing said product is "shit" and

  2. Laws get passed by our corrupt politicians beforehand to ensure that Wall Street would be able to extract wealth from the real economy to themselves, with impunity, and that their actions would eventually destroy the economy..

then...

It's called FRAUD on a massive scale and no one went to jail for it. That tends to piss people off...The politicians, bankers and multinational corporations are the "people" who colluded against the American populace and are sucking the life out of this country for some crony capitalist wet dream. It's still happening. If you are wondering what part of the 1% people are pissed off with, it's the crooks and grifters in the 1%..

Problem #2 Our country has been hi-jacked by these entities. This should be of concern to everyone..We no longer have a representative form of government, it's a Plutocracy.

@Joyce you "yawn" but why do you think anyone could be excited by your status quot, let the bad guys win, as long as I'm profiting position? That warped mindset will destroy you and this country with it.

It's the same thing the Tea Party did at the health care townhalls.

Hope you are consistent enough to be revolted by that as well.

I have stated no love for the tea party nor any one entity for that matter....feel free to trace my protracted sentiment here. Per usual, no one will directly address the issue I have brought up. Just as was displayed at a NY DOE meeting...no on seemed to care we just shout.

The ugly truth. America's wealth is STILL being concentrated. When the rich get too rich, the poor get poorer. These latest figures prove it. AGAIN.

According to the Social Security Administration, 50 percent of U.S. workers made less than $26,364 in 2010. In addition, those making less than $200,000, or 99 percent of Americans, saw their earnings fall by $4.5 billion collectively. The sobering numbers were a far cry from what was going on for the richest one percent of Americans.

The incomes of the top one percent of the wage scale in the U.S. rose in 2010; and their collective wage earnings jumped by $120 billion. In addition, those earning at least $1 million a year in wages, which is roughly 93,000 Americans, reported payroll income jumped 22 percent from 2009. Overall, the economy has shed 5.2 million jobs since the start of the Great Recession in 2007. It’s the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression in the 1930’s.

Another word about the first Great Depression. It really was a perfect storm. Caused almost entirely by greed. First, there was unprecedented economic growth. There was a massive building spree. There was a growing sense of optimism and materialism. There was a growing obsession for celebrities. The American people became spoiled, foolish, naive, brainwashed, and love-sick. They were bombarded with ads for one product or service after another. Encouraged to spend all of their money as if it were going out of style. Obscene profits were hoarded at the top. In 1928, the rich were already way ahead. Still, they were given huge tax breaks. All of this represented a MASSIVE transfer of wealth from poor to rich. Executives, entrepreneurs, developers, celebrities, and share holders. By 1929, America's wealthiest 1 percent had accumulated around 40% of all United States wealth. The upper class held around 30%. The middle and lower classes were left to share the rest. When the majority finally ran low on money to spend, profits declined and the stock market crashed.

Of course, the rich threw a fit and started cutting jobs. They would stop at nothing to maintain their disgusting profit margins and ill-gotten obscene levels of wealth as long as possible. The small business owners did what they felt necessary to survive. They cut more jobs. The losses were felt primarily by the little guy. This created a domino effect. The middle class shrunk drastically and the lower class expanded. With less wealth in reserve and active circulation, banks failed by the hundreds. More jobs were cut. Unemployment reached 25% in 1933. The worst year of the Great Depression. Those who were employed had to settle for much lower wages. Millions went cold and hungry. The recovery involved a massive infusion of new currency, a World War, and higher taxes on the rich. With so many men in the service, so many women on the production line, and those higher taxes to help pay for it, the lions share of United States wealth was gradually transfered back to the middle class. This redistribution of wealth continued until the mid seventies. This was the recovery. A massive redistribution of wealth.   Then it began to concentrate all over again. Here we are 35 years later. The richest one percent now own over 40 percent of all US wealth. The lower 90 percent own just over 10 percent of all US wealth. This is true even after taxes, welfare, financial aid, and charity. It is the underlying cause. No redistribution. No recovery.

The government won't step in and do what's necessary. Not this time. It's up to us. Support small business more and big business less. Support the little guy more and the big guy less. It's tricky but not impossible.

No redistribution. No recovery.

Those of you who agree on these major issues are welcome to summarize this post, copy it, link to it, save it, show a friend, or spread the word in any fashion. Most major cities have daily call-in talk radio shows. You can reach thousands of people at once. They should know the ugly truth. Be sure to quote the figures which prove that America's wealth is still being concentrated. I don't care who takes the credit. We are up against a tiny but very powerful minority who have more influence on the masses than any other group in history. They have the means to reach millions at once with outrageous political and commercial propaganda. Those of us who speak the ugly truth must work incredibly hard just to be heard.

And, am I to do what?

Spend your money as wisely as possible. Especially in middle and lower class communities. Check the Fortune 500 list and limit your support of high profit/low labor industries (Hollywood, pro sports, energy, credit, pharmaceutical, cable, satelite, internet advertising, video, and music, cell phone, high fashion, jewelry, ect.). Cancel all but one credit card for emergencies only. Call the provider and demand a lower rate. Be persistent. You may get it. (By the way. I gave this piece of advice long before NBC. I'm not looking for kudos. I'm telling you that NBC is directly affiliated with the credit industry. They could have given you this piece of advice years ago. Instead, they stood by and allowed their parent company, sister companies, and network sponsors to RIP YOU OFF. Even now, they give the occasional 'good guy' financial advice only because they are pressured to do so. They carefully balance every piece of 'good guy' advice with their primary goal to GET YOUR MONEY. Which is why their 'good guy' advice is so often followed by a plug for one of their sister companies, sister channels, network sponsors, or coorporate partners. For example: They tell you to pay down your credit card debt. Good advice. They should have given it years ago. Then, they tell you to GET MORE CREDIT CARDS and use them. Bad advice. One week Jean Chatzky tells you to avoid the 'free credit report' scam because it is always followed by a monthly service charge. Good advice. They should have given it years ago. The following week she stands by as her paid fellow advisor Carmen Wong strongly implies for you to have your credit monitered on a monthly basis and praises a caller for doing so. Bad advice. This is actually a plug for one of their network sponsors, coorporate partners, or parent company. The praise is nothing but a psychological trick. DON'T FALL FOR IT. Don't take ANYTHING they say at face value. Instead, read between the lines. Carefully weigh every piece of 'good guy' advice given against their primary goal. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY.). If you need a cell phone, then do your homework and find the best deal on a local pre-pay. You may be able to get one for as little as $10 a month. Don't text. The charge may seem low at the time but their profit margins are obscene. If you want home internet access, then check for a locally based provider. They can be found in nearly every city nationwide. Otherwise, use the least expensive big name provider, and share accounts whenever possible. If you need to search, then use the less popular search engines. They usually produce about same results anyway. Don't pay for any internet download. Their profit margins for such data transfers are obscene. Don’t pay to see any blockbuster movie. Instead, wait a few months and rent the DVD from a local store, borrow it, or buy it USED. Then loan it to a friend or family member. If you prefer the outing, then choose a film produced by the lesser known studeos with lower paid actors. If you want to see a big name game or event, then watch it in a local bar, club, or at home on network TV. Don’t buy any high end official merchandise and don’t support the high end sponsors. If its endorsed by a big name celebrity, then don’t buy it. If you can afford a new car, then make an exception for GM, Ford, and Dodge. If they don’t increase their market share soon, then a lot more people are going to get screwed out of their pensions and/or benefits. Of course, you must know by now to avoid those big trucks and SUVs unless you truly need one for its utility. Don’t be ashamed to buy a foreign car if you prefer it. Afterall, those with the most fuel efficient vehicles consume a lot less foreign oil. Which accounts for a pretty big chunk of our trade deficit. Its a reasonable trade-off. Anyway, the global economy is worth supporting to some extent. Its the obscene profit margins, trade deficits, and BS from OPEC that get us into trouble. Otherwise, the global economy would be a good thing for everyone. Just keep in mind that the big 3 are struggling and they do produce a few smaller reliable cars. Don’t frequent any high end department store, mall, or any business in a newly developed center or upper class community. By doing so, you encourage greedy developers, make them richer, and draw vital support away from industrial areas and away from the middle and lower class communities. Instead, support the local retailer and the less popular shopping centers. Especially in lower or middle class communities. If you can afford to buy a home, then do so. But go smaller and less expensive. Don’t get yourself in too deep and don’t buy into the newly developed condos or gated communities. Instead, find a modest home in a building or neighborhood at least 20 years old. If you live in one of the poorer states, then try to support its economy first and foremost.

Be on the lookout for commercial brainwash plots on TV. They are written into nearly every scene of nearly every show. Most cater to network sponsors, coorporate partners, and parent companies. Especially commercial health care. In particular, high profit pharmaceuticals and excessive medical testing. These plugs are countless, calculated, and VERY well written. They have commercial brainwashing down to a science. DON'T FALL FOR IT. Get off the couch and take care of your own body the way nature intended. There is no substitute. If you must see a doctor, then DEMAND that he/she give you more than 5 minutes of their undivided attention. Otherwise, dispute their unreasonable charges. Be prepared with written questions about your condition and get them answered one at a time. If they refuse, then dispute their unreasonable charges. If they prescribe excessive medical testing, then ask if they personally own the equipment or if they are paid a commission for each test. If they find nothing new or signifigant, then dispute their unreasonable charges. If they prescribe a pharmaceutical, then ask for a generic. Better yet, concider a change in lifestyle or simple tolerance. If they still recommend the name brand pharmaceutical, then ask about any financial ties or conflict of interest. If they get offended, then dispute their unreasonable charges and consider a new doctor. If you must drug away your sniffles, worries, jitters, aches, and pains, then at least do your homework. Be aware of the possible side-effects ahead of time. Don't be surprised to find yourself back a week or two later feeling worse. In which case, you should dispute their unreasonable charges. If you are diagnosed with another medical condition, then ask your doctor what he/she has done to rule out those possible side-effects. Otherwise, dispute their unreasonable charges. Don't let any greedy doctor treat you like a number, make you wait an hour, or rush you out of their office. Otherwise, dispute their unreasonable charges. Don't fall for this CRAP that doctors have no choice but to over-book their time or over-charge their patients because of a high overhead. ITS A LIE. YOUR DOCTOR IS MOST LIKELY A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE. The same goes for their bogus claim to over-test so many of their patients because they are afraid of missing something and being sued for it. THAT IS ANOTHER FLAT-OUT LIE. Afterall, if this were true, then it would only explain some of the unnecessary testing. NOT THE OBSCENE CHARGES. It also wouldn't explain their own financial ties directly to the manufacturers of said testing equipment. Thats right. Most doctors hold stock in the very same companies that produce that equipment. Its another conflict of interest. So don't fall for their CRAP. Demand their undivided attention and respect. Afterall, they took an oath. If you have the opportunity before being admitted, then check the record of your hospital. Check to see if they have been investigated or sued for providing unnecessary treatment, excessive medical testing, or fraudulent billing. Dozens have already been caught doing so. Do all of the above regardless of your coverage. Don't force your employer to cover the obscene and often fraudulent charges of a corrupt health care industry. By doing so, you make the problem worse. Keep your guard up when watching ANY talk show. These people are not your friends. They are not your advocates. They are paid actors hired to get your attention and your money. Some of them are also executive producers (Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Degeneres, and Dr Phil.). Nearly every word, smile, and stupid joke is rehearsed ahead of time. Including those which take place so often during what appear to be 'technical oversights' (Today Show. Even their stage hands are mixed in behind the scenes so that you can hear them laugh at every stupid joke.). Its all fake. Its all calculated. These people are not trying to make the world a happy place. They are trying to entertain you only because their marketing studies have shown that you are more likely to drop your guard and support their sponsors. Nearly every segment is about marketing some over-priced product or service. They will use any excuse to plug a gadget, fashion item, travel destonation, credit card, university, drug, medical test, surgical procedure, movie, TV show, book, magazine, song, website, ect. Almost all of it over-priced. Almost all of it resulting in higher profits for their sponsors, partners, and parent companies. DON'T FALL FOR IT.

Agree Squared.

Moore's films are mostly trick editing. You'll notice people's ties changing colors in mid-speech. He's taking pieces of interviews or speeches, jumbling them together, and thereby Making the speaker say things he/she never said. It used to be called "taking out of context" but Moore is using modern technology. The Illusion of Truth (B5 episode).

ALSO the guy claimed in an NBC interview, "I'm not one of the 1%". He flatout lied. He owns millions in Banking and Megacorp stock. He is part of them. And yet denies it..... why?

I was not aware that Carleton Heston was a "disgusting people" such that he deserved to have 3 of his speeches chopped up, reedited, and rewritten into words he never said. Oh that's right. He didn't. Michael Moore is just a propagandist in the tradition of Goebbels.

Michael Moore is a master of the art of deceit through audio-video manipulation. As prime example of how this journalistic propaganda works, watch "Illusion of Truth" from Babylon 5. Don't allow yourself to be so easily duped.

I'm all for 2nd amendment rights, but having the NRA meeting in Denver shortly after Columbine wasn't the smartest thing to do.

Now Charlton Heston was suffering form ill heath during the Michael Moore interviews..Was it fair to take advantage of Charlton Heston considering the shape he was in ...NO...

Micheal Moore isn't Goebbels though and I can name a few folks out there in propaganda land that more resemble a Goebbels and use words such as Liberal like Goebbels used the word Jew....

When this country goes full Fascist, I know who the authorities will be going after..

That's just my observation...I'm just a guy who doesn't "believe" in any of this shit anymore..I have no political affiliation, no ideology, no religion, nothing.. I'm for what works and bottom line none of this sh*t is working.

having the NRA meeting in Denver shortly after Columbine wasn't the smartest thing to do.

Now see? That is EXACTLY what I'm talking about with Michael Moore. The NRA did not have a meeting in Denver after the shooting. They had the meeting before the shooting, but Moore used "creative editing" to make you believe the opposite (basically he rewrote history). He's a propagandist.

Or to put it more bluntly...a liar. "I am not part of the 1% rich," he claimed on national tv. Yes. Yes you are Mr. Moore. Why deny it? There's no need to lie to us... you're rich. No reason to hide that fact.

But that's his modus operandi. Obfuscation, twisting the truth and if necessary, flat-out falsehoods. Moore is a master...

NRA Meeting was scheduled way before hand but happened after Columbine..

The working class of this country is going down the shitter and Moore's movies highlight the issue...If Moore's movies aren't accurate overall, then we don't have a 9.1 unemployment(actually about 20%) and everything, including shit, smells like roses around here...

Get over it.

If Moore's movies aren't accurate overall

They AREN'T accurate. You might as well be getting your history from the Bible. (Yes that's how inaccurate Moore's films are.)

I don't know how people can be so easily duped... bit like how people watching Beck are duped. It's all just distortion.

Well please come up with something besides "you've been duped". You don't really think people are going to put up with your BS without some reference...

the guy claimed in an NBC interview, "I'm not one of the 1%". He flatout lied. He owns millions in Banking and Megacorp stock. He is part of them. And yet denies it..... why?

So GypsyKing is easily duped into following liars and calling them "heroes". He'd probably have joined-up with the SS too in 1930s Germany. Useful idiot.

We should all eat Michael Moore. He is very rich, and very very fat. It is estimated that 357 families of four could eat for two months off his carcass. And his fortune could end hunger and poverty for all for all eternity.

Michael Moore would be proud to be eaten by the 99%. Let's make him proud. Let's eat him. Bon Appetit!

Moore talking about lying, isn't he the guy that implied that George Bush and Osams Bin Laden were best of pals

[-] 2 points by nickhowdy (1104) 2 years ago

George Bush and Osama Bin Laden went to the same preparatory school in Saudi Arabia, they were roommates and did nasty, sinful things to each other..I have the pictures.

[-] 1 points by thebeastchasingitstail (1912) 2 years ago

I believe it was the Bin Laden family that Moore said the Bushes were pals with and it is true.

Why do you hate Michael Moore for telling the truth?

[-] 0 points by Joyce (375) 2 years ago

Yes, Moore sucks!

So what is Michael Moore doing for the people? I think there's a pretty good answer to that question. How about making movies to expose the corporate slavers we serve.
