Michael Moore: The Million Dollar Man To the Rescue
Nobody Reports: Michael Moore was out in Wisconsin yesterday, demanding that all the rich who are hoarding our money hand it over. And because he is one of the rich, he said he was going to take all his money and make it into a bunch of million dollar men, made up of hundred dollar bills, to be handed out to all the teachers unions in Wisconsin.
Actually, he didn't say that, I did, which is why Michael Moore complaining that the rich don't pay their full share is such a joke.
This is what he DID say on his blog, and how Nobody answered.
Michael: I have nothing more than a high school degree. But back when I was in school, every student had to take one semester of economics in order to graduate. And here's what I learned: Money doesn't grow on trees. It grows when we make things. It grows when we have good jobs with good wages that we use to buy the things we need and thus create more jobs.
Nobody: It doesn't? Don't tell that to the woman who knew when Obama was elected she would not ever have to pay for rent, or gas for her car ever again. To many people, it comes in the mail for free. So do food stamps. Michael economics 101..Okay...keep going Michael.
Michael: It grows when we provide an outstanding educational system that then grows a new generation of inventers, entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and thinkers who come up with the next great idea for the planet. And that new idea creates new jobs and that creates revenue for the state.
Nobody: America spends more money per student on education than any other country in the world, Michael, and yet, we do not have an outstanding educational system. In parts of Wisconsin, half the kids don't even graduate high school. And why is that Michael? The unions. By the way, who was your high school economics teacher? Was his name Karl?
Michael: But if those who have the most money don't pay their fair share of taxes, the state can't function. Just 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined wages,
Nobody: Well hey--I agree with that! Sixty percent of the people pay no taxes at all. Let's get them to start forking over. And guess what? Even if you took all the money from all 400 rich people, (who I agree, some should be in jail) you would not even make a dent in the deficit. Go back to the chalkboard, cupcake.
Michael: The schools can't produce the best and the brightest who will go on to create those jobs.
Nobody: Has it ever occurred to you to go back to your first lessons of economics and privatized the schools? Get all that union money and big brother out of it? No, I can see you're not feeling well.
Michael: If the wealthy get to keep most of their money, we have seen what they will do with it: recklessly gamble it on crazy Wall Street schemes and crash our economy. The crash they created cost us millions of jobs. That too caused a reduction in revenue. And the population ended up suffering because they reduced their taxes,(Nobody says..huh? Where?) reduced our jobs and took wealth out of the system, removing it from circulation.
Nobody: Michael, one of the reasons you are a multimillionaire is because you have stock in all those great big companies you hate. What happened? Did you lose some money in the stock market? Or is this all about your next movie; "Bloviating Socialism in Wisconsin" ?
Michael: They have bought and paid for hundreds of politicians across the country to do their bidding for them. But just in case that doesn't work, they've got their gated communities, and the luxury jet is always fully fueled, the engines running, waiting for that day they hope never comes.
Nobody: Well, here's the catch. Michael has a point on this. Our big corporations, banks, and politicians, are not separate anymore. Everyone knows it, and Michael is using the pain people are felling right now to guide us all into a communist state. He blames the rich, instead of where the blame should be put: corruption in our government.
Sadly, Michael Moore is the prime example of why our educational system has to be overhauled completely. Look what it did to him.
As our founders reminded us: only an educated people can hold on to a Republic, and it's up to us to keep fighting the unions.
Now, somebody give that man a wheelchair before he has a heart attack.
