A Review of Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story”

Michael Moore, the leftist the right would like left behind, has done it again.  Capitalism: A Love Story is in theaters around the nation.  As much to annoy my right leaning friends as anything else, I attended opening night.  I’ve always enjoyed Moore’s work even if he did every now and again take a bit of literary license.  His intention has always been to be provocative.  Love him or hate him, you can’t deny he’s been successful at that.

This person has no business collecting a paycheck. He should be relieved of his job of fleecing the taxpayers and cheating the children of America so he can return to whatever cave in which he has been living. If he typifies the American teacher, it is no wonder our competitiveness in the international arena has become so pathetic. Continue reading
