Re: Michael Moore's message to conservatives

My next Netflix for Sat is..

This Divided State

When Michael Moore was invited to speak at Utah Valley State College in 2004, his reputation as a liberal firebrand took center stage, igniting an ideological clash between right-wing opponents and left-wing supporters -- and necessitating the appearance of Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Weren't the first Fuel Economy standards put in place in 1972, under Republican Leadership?

Aren't we ALL breathing cleaner air now because of it. I love how he tries to twist it all.

Wasn't the Emancipation Procla... oh, sorry, never mind -wrong topic.

MM is as bad, maybe worse than the far right wing wackos, IMO.

That's what I'm worried about.

... Honestly -- nothing would please me better than for SOMEONE -- Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Martian -- to make things better for us all.

Some Republicans are, too -- hence the election results.
Wow peggy, I just went back and read this thread from the beginning. Your post nailed my feelings exactly. Great job. Anyone jumping in should go back and read the entire post - I just snipped a bit.

I love how MM started it all off by setting up that straw man that we are 'dismayed' and 'distraught' by this. It goes downhill from there.

I think it's sad that people take him (or the right wing equivalents) seriously. Sad.

I agree, the reps have a lousy current record on the environment. I just take issue with MM and one sided views.
