Chainsaw-wielding 11-year-old back in custody @ 03:09 pm

The best thing about telling people that I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 this weekend is that look they give you. You know the look. It's the look like I just dug up Ronald Reagan's still warm body and analy raped his corpse. It's just a movie people, and Michael Moore is just a guy.

I can understand people not liking Mr. Moore, that's your perogative. A lot of times I think he's a jerk, and that messes up his message. But there always is a message there, and it's usally pretty good. People argue that he's too one sided, or that he has some hidden agenda. GREAT! Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. I don't believe every word he says, just like I don't believe every word anyone says.

I don't trust Michael Moore and more than I would the local news, the President of the country, or my own grandmother for that matter. Well maybe my grandmother. The way I see it he's got a message, I think it's an interesting message, and even if you don't agree with his message it's an interesting view point. You owe it yourself to hear as many view points as you can find, do some research, and make up your own mind.

Needless to say, of all the negative feedback I've received about Fahrenheit 9/11, zero people have actually seen the movie. That seems awfully close-minded to me. Besides it's really easy to dislike a movie you've never seen.

"It's the look like I just dug up Ronald Reagan's still warm body and analy raped his corpse."

GAAYY!!

I think Michael Moore doesn't hide his agenda at all, which is one of the positive aspects of him. There's nothing hidden. He flat-out says what his agenda is: to promote liberal and democratic values and to get GW kicked out of office (or at least not re-elected).

I hope you didn't consider my comments to be negative feedback; they were concerns I had with him, which I have specifically because I DO want him to succeed, and the sooner the better. I just worry that his methods may end up alienating some people that could've otherwise been won over. I still do plan on seeing the movie, though, and I don't object at all to him doing what he does. My only desire is for him to be as effective as humanly possible, because the more effective he is, the better the world will be. At least in theory.

Wow, I don't like a lot of people, but I still respect their opinion. I'm kind of surprised people are giving you a hard time about it. I catch the Howard Stern show in the mornings, does that make me an extremist? Sheesh.

Seems that all the people I've talked to are extremely closed minded about a lot of things. Close minded people suck.
