Happy Labor Day

In honor of America's workers, today is Labor Day.
Not to be confused with May Day, which is the "Labor
Day" for workers in the rest of the world. I've always
thought it would be interesting to see one of these
military hardware parades on May Day in Red Square
but of course, haven't been able to. The closest I've
come is just missing by a week the military parade
that was going to go by our apartment in Quito.
While I'm on the subject of Socialism, (nice segue eh?)
I noticed that Michael Moore is producing documentary
exposing the horrors of Capitalism. Nice. I'm sorry,
but I feel that Mr. Moore is a hypocrite and a phony.
I extremely doubt he will be donating all proceeds
from his movie to a charity. I'm sure he also lives
in a nice house, drives a nice car, etc etc. Also, I'm
sure he will try to find some Hollywood studio to
release and promote the film. Hollywood is one of
the largest Capitalist promoters in the world.
Mr. Moore...give me a break!

I'd have to agree with you there, Tom, about Moore. Such a hypocrite....

GIve me a break... He is just trying to open up middle America's eyes. He always states first and foremost he loves America. But he also likes to try and expose things going on in our, his , your country. NO one is forcing you to watch it. But i thank him for trying to open up some close minded people's eyes.. Even though i may not agree with him all the time!!

Thank you Anonymous. You are entitled to your opinion as I am also. However, as a middle of the road kind of guy, I've found that some of the most intolerant people are very liberal or very conservative.
Mr. Moore would fill the former.
