    I am looking forward to another well-produced Michael Moore documentary. I will never understand all of the Michael Moore haters who repeat unsubstantiated claims of brainless haters that he twists the facts, etc. What are THEY doing to make the world a better place?

    Did you catch the Larry King interview, last night?

    I think this guy's on to something. Yeah, he's sensationalistic, but I think that's the point.

    Yeah, good interview. Moore has covered some powerful vignettes in his movies, especially in SICKO. I hear this one is also similar.

    And thus, why rampant deregulation was a bad idea.

    I agree.

    I remember watching CNN a couple of weeks ago. They were doing a story on the anniversary of MLynch bankruptcy.

    One of the money managers when asked, made the comment he was not surprised that it failed. that it was the same managers who managed a $30B company were now managing a $380B company. i know they say hindsight is 20/20, but i immediately wondered where was he at the time? was he not drinking from the same trough?
    And isn’t this part and parcel of capitalism practices. We have companies gorging themselves on smaller ones, cheered on by wall street even though everyone knows full well that such mergers and acquisitions are pretty much doomed to failure – aol/time warner , At&t and whoever airlines …and the list goes on… yet we stumble on because of the profits generated for such transactions for a greedy few

    What people fail to realize is that the smaller people have the most power, if only they would use it. If people did not buy a product, or decided to boycott their health insurance company, or not watch a TV show, they could, we could, control everything around us. We can control where all the money goes. It just takes a group effort.
