Michael Moore to conservatives

Michael Moore, I've read your "pledge to disheartened conservatives". I'm not sure I belong entirely to the target audience of your pledge, but I do appreciate the sentiment. Your laundry list of pledges and commitments, while breathtaking in its naiveté, is no doubt well meaning.

But regarding point number 9... you will never, ever take my handguns, you fat piece of crap.

Thank you, that is all.


Wow, a new "Contract With America" ... yawn.

Yes, #9 shows a rather poor grasp of the Constitution. Guns aren't specifically protected for the purpose of hunting, gun ownership is protected to keep us safe from our government. Therefore we need machine guns, not deer rifles. Tactical nukes, too. I want one!

Is this going to be the strategy of the marginalized Left-wing of the Democratic Party?

To ignore the Conservatives, evangelicals and pro-lifers who voted in New (Conservative) Democrats last Tuesday???

Is their message to these New Democrats,
"Shut up, we were here first, this is about OUR agenda, not yours?"

Certainly seems like it.

But Michael Moore seems a might confused about a number of issues in his offering. A slew of Ballot Initiatives/referendums made the "American people's voice" very clear that day.

"2. We will let you marry whomever you want, even when some of us consider your behavior to be "different" or "immoral." Who you marry is none of our business. Love and be in love -- it's a wonderful gift."

Well, gay marriage was voted DOWN by better than 2 to 1 across Ameirca...and many New Democrats ran on that issue (against gay Marriage).

On health care - "When we make America the last Western democracy to have universal health coverage, and all Americans are able to get help when they fall ill, we promise that you, too, will be able to see a doctor, regardless of your ability to pay."

Uhhh, that's NOT the Liberal Democrat agenda on health care, that's GM's & Ford's agenda, as both auto makers, along with a consortium of other business leaders recently made clear, they don't want "bail outs," but instead want government to pay for the health care costs that companies have traditionally borne.

In FACT, that's been the stance of BIG BUSINESS on that issue for over two decades.

The plan is to eventually put all low level and first or front-line (lower level) workers into large, government funded HMOs, while preserving private insurance networks (like the old GHI) for higher tiered (more valuable) workers and wealthy owners/investors.

Interesting that Moore would support a system that seeks to ration/limit health care for the lower paid workers and the poor, while offering much broader coverage more valuable employees and those better off.

And he ends by, in effect, declaring war on the very New Democrats responsible for changing both the face of the Democratic Party and the balance of Congressional power last Tuesday with, "We will discourage religious intolerance and fanaticism -- starting with the fanaticism here at home, thus setting a good example for the rest of the world."

Hey numb nuts!

Heath Schuler and the army of socially Conservative, pro-life and evangelicals such folks brought with them are Democrats now.

Not a good strategy to alienate those who brought about all those changes.

Maybe Rahm Emanuel can help Moore wise up to the new realities of the "New Democratic Party."

Moore, Al Sharpton, Babs, and the embarrassing Gay Pride Parade o' Fruits was conspicuously absent this last election cycle.

Every time they open their mouths, the Dems lose votes, just like big-haired preachers having gay sex loses the Repugs votes.

Both sides have their embarrassments.

If Moore truly loved his party, he would stuff another cheeseburger in his fat face and SHUT UP.
