From Flint MI to the Upper West Side of Manhatten. Moore is less

A fat phoney gets rich by being an "advocate" for the working class.

Sheesh, he escaped Flint. Madonna escaped Bay City. More power to them.

Moore is less, take 2

-- (roland@hatemail.com), March 22, 2002.

Look at it this way Rolo, if it weren't for the working class you repug scums wouldn't even have computers, so you could no longer get paid to sit around and bash people all day. You should be grateful to them, otherwise you freeloaders of capitalism might be forced to do something productive for once in your life. Methinks you weasels would most likely die off if you actually had to work for a living.

-- (what@whining.scumbag), March 22, 2002.

I have much respect for the working class but not much respect for fat cynics like Moore who make big bucks by pretending to be a prole.

Are you a blue collar person?

-- (rollo@hatemail.com), March 22, 2002.

I am a white-collar professional, but I've done my share of back-breaking blue-collar work before I got here so I have the utmost appreciation for our labor workers. They are the backbone of this country and they need people like Michael Moore to fight for their rights, otherwise the greedy lazy repugs like yourself will continue to shit upon them. You say you respect blue collar workers, yet you bash one of their most valuable advocates. In a chickenshit kind of way, you are really showing that actually don't respect them at all, otherwise you would be supportive of someone who works very hard for them.

"A fat phoney gets rich by being an "advocate" for the working class."

LOL! If Moore is getting "rich" then what do you call all the "fat phoney advocates" for the capitalist pigs in this country? Rush Limbaugh got filthy stinking rich (and FAT too!) by preaching to the conservative scum how they can be even more greedy than they already are. Lately the media has become infested with these conservative scumbags, but I don't see you bashing any of these fat pigs.

Yawn is right. They hypocrisy that you repugs constantly spew is so predictable that it is way beyond boring.

-- ho-hum (repug@party.line), March 23, 2002.

"Yawn is right"

The scoldmeister agrees with me. This is alarming. ROTFL.

-- (roland@hatemail.com), March 23, 2002.

Won't pretend I have the stamina to endlessly rehash reality with you but answer one for me. What is it that upsets you so about a business philosophy that has produced the highest standard of living in the world for your blue collar heros? Is that white collar making you feel guilty?

-- Carlos (riffraff@cybertime.net), March 23, 2002.

Hey I didn't start this thread! LOL, why don't you ask Mr. "Hatemail"?

If he thinks that people like to listen to him bashing Michael Moore for being fat and "rich" (hardly!), then he should be prepared to either take a taste of his own medicine, or face the fact that he is a hypocrite.

He did not try to defend his ignorant attack, so at least he appears to be smart enough to stop short of proving himself to be a total hypocrite. I'll take the "yawn" as a sign that he was willing to swallow his medicine. He passed the test, this time.

-- (erase@the.hate), March 23, 2002.

Why do I seriously doubt that this guy is white collar?

-- bogsworth (running@on.8cylinders), March 23, 2002.

To the ignorant asswipe giving Roland a hard time on this thread:

Your obvious penis envy of all things Republican and productive is noted. Michael Moore has made a fortune by pimping himself to fools like you. Without those ‘corporations’ you so detest, there would be NO blue-collar jobs available.

I realize this is a difficult concept for you to grasp but so it is.

Now, get your lame ass back to work before you overcook the fries.

*Now, get your lame ass back to work before you overcook the fries.*

-- spoken like (a@true. asshole), March 23, 2002.

Carlos, just a minor caveat. The USA does not enjoy the highest standard of living in the world - especially if you are a blue collar worker. By the most meaningful sorts of measures we rank about tenth, behind many of the more socialized countries that you are likely to despise. The lack of universal health care in the USA hits hardest at workers on the lower end of the pay scale. If we want to be #1 in the world, we need to act more like Norway. Ask Anita for details.

-- Little Nipper (canis@minor.net), March 23, 2002.

The fat phoney knows he is a fat phoney---

Moore dismissed criticism over his purchase of a million-dollar home. "I'm a millionaire, I'm a multi-millionaire," he proclaimed. "I'm filthy rich. You know why I'm a multi-millionaire? 'Cause multi-millions like what I do. That's pretty good, isn't it? There's millions that believe in what I do. Pretty cool, huh?"


Hey, I just post his quotes.

Capitalism is a very good system. The problem is those who abuse it, like the guys at the top of Enron, or Rolo the imbecile, who probably pulls down a nice salary to sit at his desk all day and play childish games on the internet since he isn't even smart enough to figure out how to close an HTML tag (how many times is that now?).

-- (too many pigs getting @ free. ride), March 23, 2002.

I don't clutter my mind with nitty gritty trivia like HTML tags.

-- (Roland@hatemail.com), March 23, 2002.

Obviously not, but why do you even attempt them if you don't have the intellectual capacity to make sure they are done correctly? Methinks this is probably your overall approach to all things in life... never capable of doing more than a half-assed job of anything, but the first to moan and bitch about what others are doing. In short, just another typical hypocritical idiot repug.

-- (incompetent himself @ but hyper-critical. of others), March 23, 2002.

Scoldmeister----will you marry me?

-- (roland@hatemail.com), March 23, 2002.

To answer your question Rolo, no. While it is true that I am light in the loafers, you Repugs tend to be too much man for me to handle. Now get a job.

-- (repugs@disgust.me), March 23, 2002.

"Your obvious penis envy of all things Republican"

LOL!! Repugs have penises?? Better check with Kenneth Starr on that one, he seems to think the penis is some kind of blasphemous disease which only infects Democrats!

-- LMAO (I definitely don't @ envy. repugs), March 24, 2002.

I definitely don't envy repugs. I obsess on them, wet-dream on them but I sure don't envy them. No way, I just want their love and approval.

-- (BWAHAHAHA@ROTFL.LOL), March 24, 2002.

ROTFL, now YOU'RE dreaming! I'd be very satisfied with the Repugs if they would simply learn to shut the fuck up!

-- (hee hee @ haaw. haaw), March 24, 2002.

If they shut up they might not be too much man for me to handle.

-- (shut@up.repugs), March 24, 2002.

Obsession alert

-- (Roland@hatemail.com), March 24, 2002.

Nip, as a Finn/Swede/German mutt I don't admire the Nordic model. Free riders since WWII. Pampered, protected children occassionaly imputent and never carrying the burden of their freedom. Give them a coupla million "no habla" folk and see. Naw. Won't happen. Not blond, not blue not wanted. The 90210 of the free world bought and paid for by other zips.

-- Carlos (riffraff@cybertime.net), March 25, 2002.

Excuses, excuses, excuses, Carlos. I don't see Norway getting foreign aid handouts from other countries. I rather suspect they pony up more per capita in aid programs to other countries than the good old USA does.

You say they don't pay their share of their own defense. Did you know that, if you consider the world's top 10 military budgets, the US military budget alone is larger than the next 9 put together? Maybe Norway is pretty smart not to throw that kind of money down that particular rat hole.

When you get right down to it, Carlos, when was the last time an American government defended Norway's political interests, without regard to American political interests? I think you'll find the answer is: never. Sometimes what we want happens to coincide with what is good for Norway, that's all.

-- Little Nipper (canis@minor.net), March 25, 2002.

Norway is indeed smart not to throw money down the selfdefence rathole. Why should they? New North Sea oil production is more important to us and other importers than to them. Kick back I say. Kick back, slurp the bucks and spend a few on taller fences.

-- Carlos (riffraff@cybertime.net), March 25, 2002.

Norway has nothing that the rest of the world wants and few would go out of their way to live there. Norway is the ‘Maine’ of Europe, a land mass with citizen’s that just don’t quite connect with the rest. The people are interesting (I live with one) but they can be a little thickheaded occasionally. But then, so can we all.

What bothers me about punks like “Little Pecker’ is his relentless bashing of our country. He is the typical liberal who is more than willing to ‘live’ here, but not ‘love’ here.

-- Send (mo@money.please), March 25, 2002.

Norway is a small country. We are proud of our heritage and our culture. We must keep Norway for Norwegians!

-- (Jens Olerud@Liv Ullman's.boudoir), March 25, 2002.

Send mo money: "What bothers me about punks like 'Little Pecker' is his relentless bashing of our country."

Since this "bashing" is "relentless", I am sure you can quote examples where I was engaged in this scurrilous activity -- to devastating effect. Except this may prove difficult, since I don't actually "bash" my country and I do love it.

Just for giggles, Mr. Send, what would your opinion be of someone who criticized you for calling Mickey Rooney "short", or for pointing out that Sumo wrestlers are "fat", or for saying Janet Reno was "ugly" -- on the grounds that people who loved said folks might be offended?

My guess is your reaction would positively drip with scorn. You'd break out your most condescending rhetoric and brand your critics as moronic fools. Because, without a doubt Mickey is short, Sumo wrestlers are fat and Janet Reno is ugly.

But, when I point out that the USA doesn't have universal health care and that by the most meaningful standards working class people in the USA are worse off than working class people in about a dozen other countries (out of about 180 last time I counted), you get in a snit. These are cold facts. I am just speaking the truth and you, sir, are just whining.

I love my country. If you don't like to hear the truth, you can just bite me.

-- Little Nipper (canis@minor.net), March 25, 2002.

Shame! Janet Reno is not ugly. She is "pulchritudinally challenged".

-- (lars@indy.net), March 25, 2002.

Please ignore the sicko "send mo money". He is very psychotic and severely sick in the head, as witnessed by his offensive and insensitive attack on Cherri. He is just trying to get attention from others because he hates himself so much.

-- (ignore@the.sicko), March 25, 2002.

The really cold fact Nip is that if federally mandated healthcare happens your working class will become indentured slaves for a generation just to pay the bill for us boomers.

-- Carlos (riffraff@cybertime.net), March 27, 2002.

Carlos, you make it sound like such a bad thing.
