michael moore - spokesperson for environmental collapse.


I for one don't see a problem with "rational self-interest".
and yet I still think michael moore is a dick, not for wealth but for insincerity, for being a hustler. I used to really like the guy and now I hate him... why?

because he sold out... and I hate sell outs.

also, this moment/movement is a lot of things to a lot of people... for me, the environmental collapse, the depleting of resources, the U.S. using 1000% more resources than the rest of the world is the point, the real issue... and when a fat, rich white guy is your spokes person, well, it sorta sums it all up, the stupidity and excess that is the american way... and it's embarrassing on many levels but the biggest is the level of stupidity, the superficial thought that they, the people, the sheeple, they like mike moore because he's been on TV, and because he's been on t.v., he must be right and a guiding light.

give me a break.

last election cycle the dick actually had the nerve to sell a book on voting… if his intent were pure, he'd offer that shit up for free… but he did not… he sells what his fools will buy.

capitalism a love story indeed.

you want a fighter on your side that makes sense and is pure??
try douglas rushkoff
try adam curtis

although, they aren't so nice about things… or should I say, they aren't so base and pandering to your hate/love of nascar.

***add to note: I was a big michael moore fan and as a young midwestern boy, I found one of the newspapers he put out, that was my first brush with what could have been... it was one of many influences that brought me here... power/greed corrupts the weak... moore has proven himself weak... I wish him strength.

an open letter to the occupiers.

I support the occupy folks and I'm happy to see them removed from the parks.

it's not a free speech issue.
it's a do nothing issue.

you've had the support of many unions, including the teachers union.
and what did you do with that support?

nothing.

you could have done many things, maybe hired investigators to find out why children have out-dated school books or why the veteran hospitals are so horrid yet the parks built for vets are so nice… you could have shamed administrators into action.

you chose to talk.

I believe americans supported this moment, and that support is getting less and less because, get this… we're a results driven society.

what the occupiers have accomplished is creating jobs, albeit in the security and law enforcement sector… you've also offered a great distraction for the politician, who can place blame on you and who seems to be stoking the fire every time the occupy deal starts to fizzle out… ever wonder why??

let me tell you why… because it's better than talking about the issues, the real issues… and the lack of answers the old guard, old minded political has to struggle with.

really, if you want to save face you'd call an end to the camping and use the momentum for community outreach on issues that bind, not divide… we all can agree children and their education is the future and important... and we can all agree that the elders have earned respect and hold wisdom we only hope to live so long to gain… let's do for them and watch as the divide lessens and progress, real, tangible progress happens.

a revolution is the ultimate jobs program.

to pay attention to a park is to ignore the child abuse down the block. cops getting paid. corporations filling orders for pepper spray.
you been played protester.

and the cure for cancer is trapped in a ghetto, in the mind of a surgeon turned dope slinger. do riot cops get paid to cure cancer, plant trees?

seems like a game of lame to me.

and the cure for the worlds ills are stuck in the ghetto, in the mind of a forgotten child who coulda been a contender.

for the forgotten zipcode and the forgotten folks, the forgotten children who have forgotten to care. they smell bullshit in the park and the textbooks are old and the old are shit upon.

some live a life where prison is like a walk in the park.. an escape, a statement. real life problems deserve real life solutions.

My Photo
Name:

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
