Michael Moore was right, and you ALL KNOW IT!!!!!!!!!!

This just dawned on me: where are all those people that said Michael Moore was stupid, out of touch moron and that he should just shut up already? Where are they? I mean, Michael had the guts to slam Bush during the Oscars (nobody else had the audacity to be bluntly honest, or even defend him afterward), and now it turns out he was right about everything!

LOL

Damn it feels good to be right!!!!!!!!!! LOL


Just wanted to rub it in!!!!!!



Laughing all the way to superiority!!!

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

Michael Moore:

Whoa. On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy for this.
I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on the stage with us, and we would like to they're here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction.
We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times.
We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president.
We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons.
Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush.
Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you.
And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up. Thank you very much.

I have to agree when I look at it now I agree with every word. I think more people disagreed at the time because of him doing it at the Oscars. But when I think about it, that's kinda cool. We don't have people speaking out and making statements like they used to. I'm glad he did it when and how he did it.

Agreed ... we need more people speaking out and creating a true democracy.

Whether you agree with him or not, you've got to respect someone for using their right to free speech and calling out the President for the mistakes he's made.

I'm glad people are speaking out too. After all our government is a democracy, not a monarchy.

Exactly. By silencing them, we're stooping to the level of dictators like Saddam Hussein. How can we fight for freedom in other countries if people attempt to stifle it here in our own country?

Yep. Definitely. Especially when you hear some of the things they say involving our president and his policies...they've got some guts.

The United States was never intended to be a "true democracy" nor will it ever be. just wanted to point that out.

What do you mean by "true democracy"? At any rate I think we are talking about freedom of speech, something we are supposed to have. It's true that in the past the vote was denied to women, African-Americans, Native Americans, and other minorities. And when in the hell will we ever elect a female president? I doubt if this will ever happen.

The United States has a representative democracy. We elect people to represent our ideas, beliefs, policies in Washington.

As for free speech, the fact that people are allowed to publicly disagree with Mr. Moore is an example of free speech.

So you mean that you don't class representative democracy as true democracy? Do you think participatory democracy (ie no elected representatives; people represent their own views at meetings, councils, etc) is the only true democracy?

Hey! Stop hijacking my thread!!!!!!

This was supposed to be a open forum allowing all those who were angered by Moore's speech to apologize and pay ME some respect in the process

Stop running off on tangents about democracy and focus on what's important: Danospano was right and many others were wrong

Got it
