After reading the article I thought, why don’t people read. Because if they were interested in current affairs they would know that things are starting to work for the country. TARP is a huge success and now the Stimulus is working.

But unfortunately people only know that unemployment is bad, so they are very unhappy. Sad, but for years I’ve watched how uninformed our people in the US really are.

Perfect example is the war in Iraq. The average person didn’t research to make sure that this country was in a war because of 9/11, many of them, if you ask them think Saddam Hussein was the reason for 9/11. They just took the word of the Bush admin. Didn’t read newspapers, magazines, or even watch cable news. I remember when it was disproved that Hussein had not been the cause of 9/11 people didn’t even realize that. How do I know? Because I have a big mouth and I always engage strangers about issues if the moment arises. And I’m stunned at how ignorant people are.

So I am truly hoping that maybe, just maybe, they will start listening.

Michael Moore’s ‘Capitalism: A Love Story’

Posted by Audiegrl

It’s a crime story. But it’s also a war story about class warfare. And a vampire movie, with the upper 1 percent feeding off the rest of us. And, of course, it’s also a love story. Only it’s about an abusive relationship.

It’s not about an individual, like Roger Smith, or a corporation, or even an issue, like health care. This is the big enchilada. This is about the thing that dominates all our lives — the economy. I made this movie as if it was going to be the last movie I was allowed to make.–Michael Moore


For anyone who would like to read Michael’s diary on DKos and send him a message, you can find it here.

The movie will be in theaters on October 2nd.
