Fahrenheit 9/11

When this Michael Moore documentary was released, I paid good money to see it in downtown Fort Worth during its opening weekend. (Money well spent, at that). I am still stunned when I recall the presence of a Fort Worth Police Officer at the door of the movie's screening to make sure no one under 17 was admitted with parent or guardian. (We can't let young ears hear this leftist propaganda, right?) I seriously doubt that a police officer anywhere in the metroplex was guarding Saw II this weekend.

I didn't even realize it was R rated. I had to go check my DVD case for verification.

Michael Moore is the Rush Limbaugh of the liberal set. Both are idiots in my book.

As for cops being present at movie theaters to card attendees for R rated movies, there are many theaters over here in Plano and McKinney that I see that happening. It does not seem to be every theater every day or every R movie. However, have seen it randomly at at least 3 theaters on a variety of R rated films to include Wedding Crashers.

That cop must have been part of the same vast right wing conspiracy that is after the Clintons.

Barry, I thought you were smarter that that.

By the way, do you really think that the under 17 crowd wanted to see that movie?

Yeah and I am sure Michael Moore knows exactly what he is talking about right? And hell no I didn't vote for bush. When in doubt, vote for Nader!

anon 1132 a vot4e for nader was a vote for bush!
prehaps the cops should have been doing the id check at all th moviesthat were rated r in the theater that barry went to if they were only doing it for one than that would look a little fishy to me to remember that we have rights given to in the bill of rights one is the freedom of speech which means i may not like what you have to say but if i dont like it i dont have to listen pres bush has had a hard time with that since he is using the secutiry to keep those who have somthing to say that he dosent like away we as americans forget why tose men and women and the many men and women before them fought in the wars i take this time to thank them for time in services and say this at least michael moore didnt send our young men and women off to war with improper body armor and improper armor for their hummers wonder who did i will give a hint george the weasel bush thats who

I would say a number of things to you on this board, but it would not be appropriate. So, I will keep this PG+13.

Last time I checked, Nader is a totally different person. I understand, and I sympathize greatly with you. I am sure you graduated at the top of your class in one of our fine Wise County schools. To at least sound partially credible, learn to spell-a period every sentence would be nice as well.

Secondly, Bush may have sent our troops Iraq, Afghanistan; maybe even under false pretenses-I don't care, what's done is done. You can't take back 2,000 lives. But, what pisses me off is when people constantly whine about their children dying or getting killed-which I understand whole heartedly, but then they blame it on the administration. No one held a gun to their heads and said, "Signup or die!
"
These guys signed up under their own free will. Yes, I agree going to war was a bunch of crap-but that is the troops' job. They are told to do something, report somewhere, and fight somewhere they have to do it. I believe every family member has a right to grieve for a loved one. But, it is when you take that grief and channel it into hate towards the wrong source.

Yes, Bush is a large douche bag-but, we need to ask ourselves how many attacks would of occured without the U.S. military intervention? I am sure the valedictorian has something ingenius to say, so I will end with that.

12:39 Is your keyboard lacking punctuation keys or are you just unaware of how to use them? You make some points (I think) but your ability to communicate is hampered by your technique.

For the most part, Anon @ 1:00, I agree with you, BUT I think referring to our Commander-in-Chief as "a large douche bag" put you in the same corner as Anon @ 12:39. That corner being chilled by the lack of respect, dignity and integrity that would give your opinions more credence to a reader.

I've often said it's easy to call the President--whomever it is--derogatory names, but if the
name-callers are so qualified, and brilliant, why aren't they clamoring to run?

Oh, and don't forget, you Amateur Political Pundits out there: We have an election tomorrow. Let's not "forget" or "get too busy" pontificating to vote, ok??

Your right, and I do want to run one day. But, I am only 21.

A Japanese friend of mine said to me once that if their political leaders were discussed with such disrespect, they would be put in jail.

It is horrible the way we talk about our elected officials. It is one thing to politically disagree, but to cut people to shreds is another. We don't stop there. We attack their families, their churches, whatever. No wonder folks don't want to run for elected office. Who wants the hassle?

And when go to the polls and try to cast an intelligent vote (after hearing all of the political blah blah blah), oftentimes we vote for the lesser of two evils, leave the box blank or......

..or join the ranks of the voter apathetic and just stay at home.

It's kinda hard to be positive with so much negativity spewed all about.

...oh well......:)

Michael Moore is still a doofus. He not only had to create a ridiculous "mockumentary", but he also snatched the name from "Fahrenheit 451".
