Is there anything more hilariously hypocritical and laughingly pathetic than a self-proclaimed anti-capitalist fighting over profits?

Filmmaker Michael Moore has sued Harvey and Bob Weinstein, accusing the brothers of “Hollywood accounting tricks” and “financial deception” that cheated him out of at least $2.7 million in profits from the hit documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.

For more on what motivated this lawsuit, watch Moore’s movie, “Capitalism: A Love Story.”

    Perhaps Chrysler should have used Michael Moore in it's Super Bowl ad instead of Eminem. What Moore preaches is what we live here in Michigan. Complete and total destruction from liberal/social policies.

    Mark Stein who was sitting in for Rush yesterday really pointed out the hypocricy of the ad and you should hear the liberal weenies crying today. Even the Rino's are crying about being picked on. But everything Mark pointed out about the ad, the policies that put us in this position and those that support this welfare state, is 100% correct.

    Hell, Dave Bing, the mayor of Detroit, is now offering homes for $1000 to police officers if they will move back into the city.

    Michael Moore is the biggest belly acher about profits and social justice. He was born in Michigan, has made big time money off of the state and still cries and whines about getting "ripped off". Cry me a river!!!

    Ain`t it funny how a British-Canadian-Granite Stater / "undocumented anchorman" can get it so right !? I wish he had his own talk show…

    Just curious, under what authority does Mayor Bing GIVE a home to ANYONE for $1,000. ? Does he personally own these homes ? Or does the city ?

    No sorrow or sympathy for michael moore….

    I believe I just saw an article that said 53% of the properties in Detroit are either abandoned or forfeited due to unpaid taxes. So yeah Detroit owns a lot of real estate.

    Wow, that answers that ! Are there "nice" neighborhoods left?

    The one caller actually sounded convinced that Detroit was coming back, but he didn`t fool anyone else !

  9. nannykins on February 8th, 2011 4:37 pm

    The neighborhoods Bing wants them to move to are gated communities with their own security which defeats the purpose of wanting to have cops move back to be part of the city. The rest of the areas are either bombed out, burned out or so drug infested that it is pretty much a war zone.

    Any contractor who works in Detroit HAS to have armed security with them or they get robbed of their equipment. Even the electric/power companies have to have armed security with them when there are power outages. They steal the vehicles right out from under them while they are up on the poles.

    Some contractor aquaintances reported similar robberies while helping to restore New Orleans after Katrina; one was robbed of his valuables while up on a pole (they didn`t take his truck), so when they left, he climbed down and came home saying, "N.O. can rot in Hell before he`ll risk trying to help the ungrateful bastards again !"

    We do have crime here, but nothing so brazen as that ! Thank GOD !

    I’m surprised so little has been said about naming a TV show ‘Detroit 187’…sad.

    My husband was born in Detroit and along with his parents lived at his grandparents home in his early years and I had many relatives who relocated to Detroit prior to WWII for jobs and remained there after the war. They lived in beautiful, stately homes even though they were blue collar workers. When I was young we visited family there and going downtown Detroit was awesome. The big city and the big, absolutely beautiful buildings were such a thrill. Hudson's was the big trip – Sander's candy counter with fountain Vernors soda pop, white gloved elevator operators, the glamorous sales ladies. Then there was old Tiger stadium. It was quite the sight for an up north country girl. Now, those glorious buildings have been torn down or are gutted. The immediate downtown area is okay – but it will never be the city it was in it's heyday. No pride in ownership, drug infested neighborhoods and lots and lots of welfare. There is a 100% entitlement mentality and no one cares.

    The city of Detroit is the largest employer in the area and they only have a 25% graduation rate in their school system. Very sad.

    Mark Stein, who sat in for Rush on Monday, was spot on in his assessment of Detroit. And……. there are not that many auto plants located in Detroit proper. They are in the outlying areas. So you can call it the Motor City but it really isn't anymore.

    I hear your sadness Nanny, my own small town, a paper mill town and once, the region`s largest employer, once nearly 10,000 pop. now just over 4,000 has several empty bldgs. The unions moved in about 1967 ish and the town went downhill ever since. Depressing to remember how vibrant the town was BU !
