You can catch more bee's with honey, than with vinegar

I can tell that Michael Moore has never heard this phrase. If he has, he must not feel that it has much value. In this article on Yahoo!NEWS, Moore is quoted as stating, in a letter to the U.S. Treasury, "I understand why the Bush administration is coming after me — I have tried to help the very people they refuse to help, but until George W. Bush outlaws helping your fellow man, I have broken no laws and I have nothing to hide."
I agree that the health care industry is in need of a major overhaul. I have corporate provided health care and am still forking over $300 a month for health care for myself, and two dependants. I also agree that George W. Bush has not established his legacy as a revered and respected president. He has shown that his intelligence is certainly not one of his strong points. However, Michael Moore seems to think that everything is Bush's fault. In his acceptance speech for the Bowling for Columbine Oscar, Moore scolds Bush for the war in Iraq. In Fahrenheit 9/11 Moore attempts to display the lackadaisical manner in which Bush responded to the terrorist attacks in September of 2001. In this new film, Moore seems to indicate that the health care problems lie solely in the hands of the President and his administration.
Does Moore provide any ideas for solutions? Or - as so many Democrats seem to do - does he simply provide criticism? I'm asking because I haven't seen any of these films.
While Michale Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 grossed a record breaking $119 million, I can proudly say that none of that money is mine.

Typical right-wing nutjob: Never seen the film. still feels entitle to critize him.

As for ideas, well, for starters get rid off the neo-cons in congress and senate so a health bill that bring the U.S. haleth system up to par with other Westren nations.

Had a bypass surgery in France last year. Costed me 1/5 the price (including plane ticket), took two months less wait and they used a technique that my two American doctors had never heard off but that produces less post-operational pain and takes shorter to recover from. And the hospital food was awesome.

Do they have an answer?...Yes, for a long time, but as long as the insurance companies, the neo-cons and the libertarians keep scarring US citizens into the whole "socialism" BS. nothing will happen.

Maybe 2008....

First of all, this guy posts anonymously... chicken shit.
Then, his grammar and spelling are about as good as a third grader on meth.
I do feel entitled to criticize Moore's views. You may not like what I have to say, but are you willing to give up my right to say it?
You commented, "Do they have an answer?...Yes, for a long time". Okay hotshot. What is it? And what are the scars of socialism (or did you mean that citizens are being "scared" into socialist bull shit)?
Anyway... my point is: learn to speak and spell English. Sign up for a user name instead of hiding behind "anonymous". Then, go reply on someone else's blog. You're an idiot and I don't want to waste my time reading your crap anymore.
