Just finished watching this movie...moore was pretty on target, at least as far as the collapse goes, but it was very surface level. he talks about a lot of the stuff Jones does too, which i found funny. the second half was garbage. it was very partisan, which wasn't surprising. i would disagree that capitalism is the cause of the recent financial collapses, and mishandling of money. i would place the blame on corruption within the system.

anyone else see this movie? opinions?

Yes I liked the partisan part where Clinton was responsible for the whole thing, and the partisan part about how only the Republicans voted for the bailout.

I saw it. I thought he was pretty accurate, minus the whole bailouts = capitalism angle.
I think he took it easy on Obama for the simple fact that Obama hadn't had a chance to do anything at that time. If there's a follow-up to this, hopefully Moore tells it like it is and rips Obama a new one.

Capitalism with goverment oversight, particularly in the financial sector, is best.

A relative of mine is interviewed in that movie: Rep Marcy Kaptur from Ohio. She is one of the smartest women in politics (and is the kind of woman who should get a VP nod over a hockey mom like Palin).

I haven't seen the film yet, but I know her stance. Watch this one from the bailout; I love it.


You have perpetrated the greatest financial crimes ever on this American Republic. You think you can get by with it because you are extraordinarily wealthy, and the largest contributors to both presidential and congressional campaigns in both major parties.


Always keep in mind the goal is to privatize gains to a few, and socialize losses to the many.

Ayn Rand, that little toad is the Machiavelli of economics... don't blame the businessmen for their ethics because what they do is amoral... yada yada yada. Blech.

I'm all for capitalism, but every action has its consequences. Rand allows those who see themselves as "producers" to look down on anyone they wish as a "moocher" rather than as a person who contributes to society as well. It absolves the a**hole of the need to be wiped clean once in a while, if you understand.
