Somebody should’ve given filmmaker Michael Moore a dictionary before he set out to make his latest film. He should have titled the film ‘Cronyism’ instead of ‘Capitalism.’He seems to confuse the two terms. ‘Capitalism’ is defined by Encarta as “an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods, characterized by a free competitive market and motivation by profit.”
A story at CNN said Moore has an “eight figure-net worth,” and I haven’t seen announcements he plans to re-distribute his wealth anytime soon. Same goes for the tax-loving Democrats who control Congress—their latest ploy is another ‘sin tax’ on soft drinks. I don’t like sweet drinks, so I can be objective here. A new tax is not the answer. Government reform is the real answer and no politician to date has the [insert your favorite male anatomy vulgarism here] to take on true government reform. That would involve cutting spending. Dems are completely incapable of doing that and I don’t see the GOP braving that battle either, unfortunately.
