Indeed so why should I be financially liable for a bunch of people to stupid to avoid scam-artists. You're saying my taxes should go HIGHER just because a smooth talking agendist who is every bit as vile as the GOP talking mouths you despise showed you a couple statistics. I should sacrifice my financial freedom just because “millions” of americans are victimized by politicians, and ethically void legal entities?
Shove it. I don't like the system, and I won't be trapped into defending it. Yet at the same time the subject of this thread was Michael Moore's film and his trustworthiness. Insofar as that goes I'd rather trust a coyote with my only chicken than take his opinions and films at face value.
I couldn't have crafted better proof had I spent an hour or two fabricating it just for it's tale tell effect on the reader.
There's no need to fix a system when any possible victims DESERVE their victim hood because they were not born to wealth and privilege in a system designed to promote the interests only of the wealthy. This is republican think in it's purest form. Victims deserve victimization for being victims in the first place.
My taxes, my taxes! AWK! Polly want a cracker! Let's put ourselves hugely in debt for generations to come by borrowing against the future in order to give the already wealthy in this nation tax breaks AND finance the ongoing disasters in Afghanistan and Iraq but do NOTHING of any real value for our people at home because that would cost money and come out of MY taxes.
Sadly, these are the very things that Michael Moore routinely points out in his documentaries as the cause of untold misery for millions of people in the lower classes and yet someone endorsing that very system as the best possible system in existence, far, far better than anything else available anywhere else in the world, considers Michael More . . . untrustworthy?
Dude, do you even realize that you just PROVED Michael Moore's primary and reoccurring documentary points and illustrated just why his films and his voice are so very very necessary in this nation that has become hell on earth in many ways for people no born into at least the middle class?
So to bring this back around, yes - as proven by his own diatribe quoted in this reply - Michael Moore is far more correct regarding his analysis of what is wrong in this nation and it's health care system than are the status-quo supporters of the right and far right.
The chances are Black_Kitty that had you come down here to seek medical treatment you would simply have lost everything you had and still suffered all the emotional tragedy and trauma as well. Eventually, anyway.
In this nation money, and ONLY money matters when you are in trouble, in real trouble. Were you in a financial situation where you could have spent tens of thousands of dollars and still recovered from such an expenditure? Because it most certainly would have cost between fifty thousand to a hundred and fifty thousand dollars for any serious and extended medical treatments if you did not possess one of those rich person's elite medical insurance contracts.
Of course, since we are talking precondition here, it's highly unlikely that you would have been sold such a medical insurance contract had you come down to the states. Money and only money talks in this nation.
