Michael Moore is a disinfo artist. He will try and co-op the movement and dilute it. Beware.

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

That is not my impression of him at all. He long was hated by the authorities, but then so were Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King... Great men must often face "the calumny of the world".

[-] 1 points by superman22x (188) 10 years ago

Jesus Gandhi and MLK didn't lie to their followers to get them to follow.

Where Micheal Moore is.. I avoid. Where Micheal Moore supports, I antagonize.

I cannot stand that man.

[-] 1 points by mindhawk (175) from Jefferson City, MO 10 years ago

This troll is programmed to strike quickly upon the mention of any celebrity.

Its dedication to antagonizing us is a sign of our continued effectiveness.

Viva Michael Moore!

Excellent article about how right wing groups are created: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/08/30/100830fa_fact_mayer

Someone needs to ask Michael Moore WHY he supports a movement attacking the WRONG people?

http://www.forbes.com/forbes-400/list/

This is the newest Annual list from Forbes of the 400 Wealthiest People in America-the ACTUAL 1%. Read the list.....how many of them are BANKERS or CEOs of banks????? Hardly ANY.

So WHY did this movement choose to attack Wall Street as part of the "evil 1%"?????????

Perhaps, in a sense...

But as was pointed out earlier today, "Michael Moore made millions on these issues...true....but he has also given millions away to support the fight. He is a 1%er who gives back selflessly."

Viva Michael Moore!

Pierce Organ will be interviewing the self appointed spokesperson for the OWS movement Michael Moore tonight at 8PM on CNN. They will be taking questions from an audience so what does that tell you? SHILL.........word is 20K fee.

[-] 1 points by paulg5 (673) 10 years ago

Michael Moore is a media prostitute, he will tell you exactly what you want to hear for a buck. I prefered OWS old idea of not having a spokesperson much better than taking on this schmuck!

Michael Moore is a fat corporate shill. He made millions off you dirty fuck wads. He is a grease eating fat filthy fucktard. He would eat butt cheese out of a commies ass.

When the revolution happens and we redistribute all wealth should we make an exception for Michael Moore? What do you guys think?

[-] 1 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

I for one think... that I smell a troll.

[-] 1 points by 71353933 (85) 10 years ago

Michael Moore??

He personally made millions on the issues of OWS..

[-] 1 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

He had the GUTS to be one of the first to address the issues and stood his ground in the face of death threats, and for that I salute him as the quintessential American patriot and hero. History will not forget him. We love you, Michael!!!

[-] 2 points by 71353933 (85) 10 years ago

That may be true....but he still made millions personally because of the issues he spoke about.....

Kinda ironic relative to the OWS movement.....

Only in America!

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

There WAS NEVER ANYTHING WRONG OR IMMORAL about being wealthy... so long as you remember: "It's not MY money, it's the money God (or Life, if you prefer) has LENT me for a little while and which I am meant to SHARE with all who are in need and would truly benefit.

As I mentioned earlier, even Jesus had some rich friends. Mary of Magdala was rumored to be well to do and shared selflessly. In fact, Mary and a few other rich women were the first backers of the "Jesus Movement". That's even stated in the Gospels, I just don't have time to research the quote.

[-] 2 points by 71353933 (85) 10 years ago

So you think Michel Moore tithes 10% or more of what he earns a year to those less fortunate?

Don't know for sure but I doubt it.

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

I wouldn't be surprised if he gave much more than 10%.

He is a deeply committed, "Christic" man.

[-] 0 points by PipeWench (4) 10 years ago

and what have you done to show millions of people what is going on, worked hard at it did ya?

why yes......!

[-] 0 points by bpk (13) 10 years ago

I would like Michael Moore to give his money (he doesn't have to show his celeb face) - the movement should petition all 1%ers (most of the movie stars fall into that category) to give money, if they do not, boycott their movie.

[-] 0 points by Howtodoit (1232) 10 years ago

Moore has his own agenda, we need a focused solaation. I've studing this since 2008, and this is what they fear most:

How we can easily Reform Wall Street: Take away their powers once again.

"We are here Congress because we want to bring REINSTATE the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 http://www.investopedia.com/articles/03/071603.asp#axzz1aPEc3wX which help saved our country from the Great Depression by preventing investment companies, banks, and insurance companies from merging and becoming large brokerage firms; instead of just being Banks and Insurance companies--can't we learn a history lesson here Congress? Btw, why did most of you vote for its repeal in 1999? http://www.counterpunch.org/2008/09/19/shattering-the-glass-steagall-act

Think about where we are now, it all started in 1999 with the subprime loans Senator Phil Gramm was peaching on Senate floor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKQOxr2wBZQ&feature=related

Furthermore, we also want you to CHANGE the Commodities Future Modernization Act of 2000 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodity_Futures_Modernization_Act_of_2000 BACK to where it was before 2000, which since has deregulated energy markets and has allowed for such scams as The Enron Loophole; whereas in the early 2000's Enron Corp. was charging 400 bucks plus for a kilowatt hour...They all when to jail for this. But, the Enron loophole is still not closed, for example, allowing speculators to resell barrels of oil over and over again before it reaches the gas station owner. It's basically, legal gambling at our expense. What were those lawmakers thinking then? What are you thinking now? Either do the right think, or you're part of the 1%."

Why are oil prices high? The Enron Loophole

Michael Moore is the man!!

[-] 0 points by KGochanour (4) 10 years ago

Michael Moore has always been a 1%er.....lets not forget though that at one time he represented the 1% of the population that had the fortitude to stand up against corporate greed at the public's expense. He questioned the ethics and legality of the same folks and institutions at a time when it wasn't popular and no one else was doing it. I agree that he has in some way profited from the suffering of others and that he should NOT be allowed to thrust himself into the limelight as some sort of spokesperson for the movement, but the man has been making these points for several decades now. He IS on our side and if it weren't for him, many of these protesters wouldn't have the courage to stand up and speak out...

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 10 years ago

ABSOLUTELY!

Even Jesus had some rich friends. Mary of Magdala was rumored to be well-to-do and shared selflessly. In fact, Mary, Joanna and Susanna were the first patrons of the "Jesus Movement". That's even stated in the Gospel of Luke:

""After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, [2] and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; [3] Joanna the wife of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means." (Luke 8: 1-3)

So Jesus never "hated the rich". He only rebuked the sociopathic rich who refused to share with the less fortunate. He would have a field day here in contemporary America! In fact, Jesus would probably have been one of the first to OCCUPY WALL STREET.

Many more people will come to your side when you are proactive (for “new” Business & Government solutions), instead of reactive (against “old” Business & Government solutions), which is why what we most immediately need is a comprehensive “new” strategy that implements all our various socioeconomic demands at the same time, regardless of party, and although I'm all in favor of taking down today's ineffective and inefficient Top 10% Management System of Business & Government, there's only one way to do it – by fighting bankers as bankers ourselves; that is, using a Focused Direct Democracy organized according to our current Occupations & Generations. Consequently, I have posted a 1-page Summary of the Strategically Weighted Policies, Organizational Operating Structures, and Tactical Investment Procedures necessary to do this at:

http://getsatisfaction.com/americanselect/topics/on_strategic_legal_policy_organizational_operational_structures_tactical_investment_procedures

Join

http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/StrategicInternationalSystems/

because we need 100,000 “support clicks” at AmericansElect.org to support a Presidential Candidate -- such as any given political opportunist you'd like to draft -- in support of the above bank-focused platform.

Most importantly, remember, as cited in the first link above, that as Bank Owner-Voters in your 1 of 48 "new" Business Investment Groups (or "new" Congressional Committees) you become the "new" Congress replacing the "old" Congress according to your current Occupation & Generation, called a Focused Direct Democracy.

Therefore, any Candidate (or Leader) therein, regardless of party, is a straw man, a puppet; it's the STRATEGY – the sequence of steps – that the people organize themselves under, in Military Internet Formation of their Individual Purchasing & Group Investment Power, that's important. In this, sequence is key.

Why? Because there are Natural Social Laws – in mathematical sequence – that are just like Natural Physical Laws, such as the Law of Gravity. You must follow those Natural Social Laws or the result will be Injustice, War, etc.

The FIRST step in Natural Social Law is to CONTROL the Banks as Bank Owner-Voters. If you do not, you will inevitably be UNJUSTLY EXPLOITED by the Top 10% Management Group of Business & Government who have a Legitimate Profit Motive, just like you, to do so.

Consequently, you have no choice but to become Candidates (or Leaders) yourselves as Bank Owner-Voters according to your current Occupation & Generation.

So please JOIN the 2nd link, so we can make our support clicks at AmericansElect.org when called for by e-mail from the group in the 2nd link, and then you will see and feel how your goals can be accomplished within the strategy of the 1st link as a “new” Candidate (or Leader) of your Occupation & Generation.
