I'm sorry, but I don't find Michael Moore, or his fans, remotely credible. - Page 4 - U2 Feedback

This thread doesn't deserve a logical, thoughtout answer.

Well apparently everyone else agrees with you as well.

I don't agree, actually. I think most threads do deserve a logical thought out answer, even if the original post wasn't logical or well thought out in the first place. We've had several threads about Michael Moore, some of which have sparked some interesting discussion. This thread didn't really bring anything new to the table, and was just a rant that may have been better served by being a journal entry.

And it only "gets worse" when discussion becomes attack. [/B]
Actually I DID read what she said in the first paragraph, however, I disregarded it as tokenism once the post became diluted with obviously pro MM, anti Bush sentiment. If you read my first post in this thread, you would see that many of the words and phrases she used were throwoffs on my post, so I took it as personally aimed at me.

I have seen plenty of 'attacks' here that have nothing to do with me. I think the time is passed when the message and the messenger can be seperated. People are starting to dislike one another personally based on position, and it is coming through in the posts, even if unintentionally. I do feel this will get worse.

It's like talking to a f*cking wall in here, Lilac.

Well, my effort to kill this thread before it really went downhill was spectacularly unsuccessful.

If ThatGuy hadn't done it...I would have replaced "moore" with "limbaugh" - they really are the same charachter.....just replace Bush with Clinton, and BOOM, you have the same fat, annoying white guy in the media bitching about how horrible our current president is!

I'm anti-Bush but sometimes Michael Moore pisses me off. I guess I love what he's trying to do, but I wish he wouldn't play so loose with the facts - especially since IMHO there's more than enough verifiable facts to show how much harm Bush and Co. are doing to the country without stretching the truth.

Just curious Shart - do you think Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh tell the truth 100 percent of the time?

Given the amount of bitchin thats going on in Interference at the moment re the USA election, is it fair to presume that there will be an increased number of voters this year?

I have always been mystified at the low voter turnout rate in the USA.

I agree with you to a degree, zoney. The biggest difference being that Moore wasn't a big fan of Clinton, and I've never heard Limbaugh blast Bush. I don't see MM treading lightly upon a Kerry presidency, either. Also, rather than just distorting facts, Limbaugh also has a tenedency just to pull them out of his butt.

There is a grey area, you know. I feel the exact same way as HA on Moore, and there's no tokenism involved. Just the belief that life isn't black and white.

Umm you have seen the pathetic bunch of characters we've been asked to choose from eh? Not just this year, every year. Some people just don't feel it's even worth driving to the precinct and standing in line (I am one of them)
