Last Thoughts Before the Turkey Comes Calling …a letter from Michael Moore
Thursday, November 25th, 2010
As I head off for Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a final thought with you about this past week’s news regarding the health care executives who sat around that table in Philadelphia four years ago and decided on a course of action to, if need be, “push Michael Moore off a cliff.”
Having spent the week reading all their secret documents (and the book “Deadly Spin”), it’s clear that there was something far more scary to these companies than me.
They were, in fact, scared of you. They were afraid YOU would end up pushing them over their own greedy cliff.
Yes, they spied on me and my family in the hopes of finding something with which to smear me and my film, “Sicko.” Finding nothing (sorry, guys, I live a pretty boring life), they then resorted to the old chestnuts that have been hurled at me by General Motors, the Bush White House, the National Rifle Association and others since my first film 20 years ago, and they essentially boil down to this:
“Don’t listen to him! He hates America! He hates our way of life! He’s not telling you the truth! He plays fast and loose with it! Patriots, don’t waste your good money to see his movie!”
And it’s that last message that’s at the epicenter of their biggest fear. Back in 2007, these health insurance companies believed that if you strolled inside a theater showing “Sicko”, their golden goose would be cooked.
They knew, according to former health care exec and whistleblower Wendell Potter, that the truth was up there on that screen — and the LAST thing they wanted was for millions of Americans to be exposed to it.
Why? Well, we need look no further than the document containing their own secret directive on how they should deal with the movie:
“[We Must] Prepare for the Worst Case…SiCKO evolves into a sustained populist movement.”
There it is. Their biggest fear. Their “worst case” scenario. That YOU, the American public, would rise up against them. I wasn’t their worst nightmare — you were. Their own research and private polling showed that you were getting fed up with how they were screwing you, gouging you, ripping you off, denying you coverage and flat out just kicking you off the insurance. They knew, according to Potter, that they were killing 45,000 of you every year simply by denying you coverage.
We Americans don’t like people who kill us. We’re the kind of people who will throw billions of dollars and the mightiest military on earth at just one guy because he killed just 2,977 people. What would we do if we discovered who’s killing 45,000 of us every year? How fast would we act to sever the head of that beast?
You don’t need to answer that question because the executives of the country’s health insurance conglomerates already know it — it’s their big “What If”, followed by an even bigger “Holy Shit.” “What If the millions of average Joes and Janes ever got it together enough to bring us all down, to end our profiting off the misery of others? What If the citizenry one day begin electing representatives who couldn’t be bought and who would end our for-profit health insurance racket?” Holy shit, indeed.
Yes, they feared that day more than anything else, and a movie coming out before a big election year with two popular Democrats pushing for some vague version of universal heath care was all that was needed to get Big Insurance to spend millions of dollars to attack me. These corporate kingpins knew they had pushed their luck too far and now they were worried that a movie — a movie! — could ignite a “populist movement.”
All that money spent smearing me because they thought you would get up from your theater seat and start a revolution.
It’s a great compliment to you. They fear the power you have. But that’s ’cause they’re good at math. They know there will always be more of us than there are of them. And unless they can repeal “one person, one vote,” they know they are doomed. In the meantime they will try to maintain the power they have by buying off politicians, dumbing us down, distracting us with Dancing/Ice Skating/Drinking with the Stars and getting us so scared we’ll acquiesce to having naked pictures taken of us at airports this Thanksgiving weekend. Over the river and through the body scan, to grandmother’s house we go…
So let us give thanks today that the richest 1% begrudgingly know that we are still, on paper at least, in charge. It is, I believe, a glimmer of hope of what we could possibly accomplish in the coming new year.
thank you very much for your time! 🙂
just a silly video…
BAZZINGA!….and thank you for your time!!! 😀
When I first saw Toy Story in 1995, I felt in love with all the characters I specially liked Rex, the green and nice dinosaur. Toy Story 1 was the beginning of a new wave of children’s movies. Movies that touch our hearts and that move, not only children hearts but also teenagers and adults.
Pixar movies success began. In 1998 Pixar release’s it second movie A Bug’s Life, also directed by John Lasseter but also co-directed by Andrew Stanton who also was one of the three writers that wrote the film. A Bug’s Life won $363,398,565 worldwide.
The company released a sequel of Toy Story, in 1999, who was the third highest grossing film of 1999, and far surpassing the original! Toy Story 2!
Pixar Animation Studios continue it’s success in 2001 with the film Monster’s Inc. John Sulley the top scarer of the Monster’s Inc, and Mike Wazowski his partner who accidentally let a 2-year-old girl scape into the Monster’s World. Now, these two monsters must take the girl back to her world!
Then in 2003, Finding Nemo was released winning $867,893,978 Worldwide! The story of a clownfish Nemo who gets catched in the sea and his father, Marlin who along with a regal tang fish called Dory, searches for his son Nemo.
In 2004 Pixar released his 6th film: The Incredibles! At the beginning is the story of a superhero family: the Parrs, and they’re life trying to fit as normal civilians, but when the father of the family, “Mr. Incredible”, has the opportunity of being a superhero again he secretly accepts a job that will result into a major conspiracy.
In 2006, Pixar released: Cars. The story of Lightning McQueen, an anthropomorphic racecar, who gets lost in a little village, Radiator Springs, in the U.S route 66 but that with the construction of the Interstate 40 that allowed people to bypass the town, was erased from the map. Cars is also the second pixar movie, after “A Bug’s Life” to have an entirely non-human cast.
Then in 2007 Ratatouille was released in 2007, it’s the story of a rat who want’s to become a professional chef in Paris!
Then in 2008, Wall•e was released! The story of a Robot whose mission is to clean the planet earth that fall’s in love with a female robot called Eve!
and then in 2009…UP! The story of an old man who decide’s to fly to South America in a house suspended by helium balloons! And was released in 3D!
then in October 2, 2009 Toy Story 1 and 2 were released in Disney Digital 3D!
and finally in June 2010 Toy Story 3 was released in 3-D! Personally I believe this movies is the best of the trilogy!
critic by Wikipedia!
The film opens with a Western style action sequence, with Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye and Rex plotted against Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Hamm, Slinky Dog, and the Aliens. However, it is revealed that the sequence is only a visualization of Andy’s imagination as a child, and the camera pulls back to play home videos of Andy when he was still a child.
Now seventeen years old, Andy has outgrown his old toys and is preparing to move to college. He decides to take Woody with him and packs the other toys in a garbage bag, intending to store them in the attic, but Andy’s mom mistakenly puts the bag on the curb. Believing that Andy no longer wants them, the toys sneak into a box to be donated to Sunnyside Daycare. As the only toy who saw what really happened, Woody tries to clear up the misunderstanding, but they are driven to Sunnyside before he can. The toys receive a warm welcome from the toys at Sunnyside, led by Lots-O’-Huggin’ Bear (aka Lotso). Woody tries to convince the others to return to Andy, but they decide they are happier at Sunnyside, so he leaves without them. The others soon discover the children Lotso assigned them with are too young, and they are innocently abused and tortured. Buzz goes to ask Lotso to transfer them to the older children, but is instead caught by some of the Sunnyside toys and reset to his original, deluded space ranger self.
In June 2011 a sequel of Cars: Cars 2 is scheduled for release in theaters!
according to Wikipedia:
“Lightning McQueen, his pit crew and his new crew chief, Mater, head around the world for the “Race of Champions” taking place in five different countries: Japan, Austria, Italy, a 24-hour race in France and the United Kingdom. However, Mater, involved in a case of mistaken identity, saves the life of a British secret agent named Finn McMissile and finds himself embroiled in his world of international espionage”
in June 2012 Brave is going to be released! It take’s place in the mythic Scotland, when Merida (Reese Witherspoon) a daughter of royalty, would rather be an archer!
and finally in November 2012 Monster Inc 2 is planned to be released!
Pixar Animation Studios has created such a big empire of movies that can be enjoyable not only by kids but for any person!
Thank you for your time! 😀
