Insane in the Membrane
The other night we watched Micheal Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story". I AM a fan of Michael Moore and think his work has been so revealing and inspiring, albeit depressing at times (the truth hurts). I read a review by a certain movie watcher called "Bamboo Nation" and found his thoughts amusing:
"After I saw "The Cove," I knew I should tell people not to support marine animal parks or swim with dolphins. After I saw "Food Inc.," I knew I should start cutting high fructose corn syrup out of my diet. After I saw "Terminator 2," I knew I should never buy a robot because machines will eventually try to kill us. After I saw "Capitalism: A Love Story," ... I left the theater in the same state that I was in after all of Moore's previous movies: paralysis."
My sentiments exactly… Our country IS ruled by corporate greed and political corruption, and while it's good to be aware of this, what can I do?? Tell me, Michael Moore, WHAAAAT??
What I do know, is I'll be attending John Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity on October 30th. Sure, this rally will probably not change the world. But perhaps gathering with a large group of normal, mostly level headed American's who have a sense of humor will bring about some much needed cohesiveness. We are living in divisive times. Coming together to have a little fun sure can't hurt.
See you there?
