Michael Moore Film Beamoans Capitalism

Talk about Irony: Film Maker Michael Moore is at it again this time its Wall Street. On Sunday at the Venice International Film Festival, the Oscar awarding film director Says Capitalism is evil and need to be replaced in his new movie “Capitalism: A Love Story,”

“Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil,” the two-hour movie concludes. “You have to eliminate it and replace it with something that is good for all people and that something is democracy.”

The villains  are banks and hedge funds gambled investors funds in complex derivatives  that few people understood.

The film show the closure of a window factory in Chicago, who gave little notice to workers that the were closing and didn’t provide back pay. So the workers held a sit in  outside of the plant. The federal government got involved along Project Rainbow/ PUSH leader Rev Jesse Jackson. The workers got back pay and severance but the plant closed away.

Another example  a of citizens(led by the group ACORN) took over a foreclosed  home in Baltimore area. The lender called the police but the police relented.

The Moore film ignores  to tell the viewers about the actions of Federal Government which created housing debacle via Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with Adjustable Rate Loans, no income verification, no job, bad credit  history encourage by liberal members of congress including US Representatives like Maxine Waters(D-CA), Barney Frank(D-MA) and others  shown here.

It’s funny how Michael Moore points out the evils of capitalism and hate while making boatload of Money. So making money on wall street bad but make a film showing the evils capitalism is good. What ever.  If Moore make a profit for himself. Give it away to charity. How phony can you get.

A team of scientists from Britain, the United States and Papua New Guinea found more than 40 previously unidentified species when they climbed into the kilometre-deep crater of Mount Bosavi and explored a pristine jungle habitat teeming with life that has evolved in isolation since the volcano last erupted 200,000 years ago. In a remarkably rich haul from just five weeks of exploration, the biologists discovered 16 frogs which have never before been recorded by science, at least three new fish, a new bat and a giant rat, which may turn out to be the biggest in the world.

The discoveries are being seen as fresh evidence of the richness of the world’s rainforests and the explorers hope their finds will add weight to calls for international action to prevent the demise of similar ecosystems. They said Papua New Guinea’s rainforest is currently being destroyed at the rate of 3.5% a year.

“It was mind-blowing to be there and it is clearly time we pulled our finger out and decided these habitats are worth us saving,” said Dr George McGavin who headed the expedition.

“These discoveries are really significant,” said Steve Backshall, a climber and naturalist who became so friendly with the never-before seen Bosavi silky cuscus, a marsupial that lives up trees and feeds on fruits and leaves, that it sat on his shoulder.

“The world is getting an awful lot smaller and it is getting very hard to find places that are so far off the beaten track.”
