Michael Moore on Bush

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Latest on New Orleans from Michael Moore. Worth reading......................

    To All My Fellow Americans Who Voted for George W. Bush:

    On this, the fourth anniversary of 9/11, I'm just curious, how does it feel?

    How does it feel to know that the man you elected to lead us after we were attacked went ahead and put a guy in charge of FEMA whose main qualification was that he ran horse shows?

    That's right. Horse shows.

    I really want to know -- and I ask you this in all sincerity and with all due respect -- how do you feel about the utter contempt Mr. Bush has shown for your safety? C'mon, give me just a moment of honesty. Don't start ranting on about how this disaster in New Orleans was the fault of one of the poorest cities in America. Put aside your hatred of Democrats and liberals and anyone with the last name of Clinton. Just look me in the eye and tell me our President did the right thing after 9/11 by naming a horse show runner as the top man to protect us in case of an emergency or catastrophe.

    I want you to put aside your self-affixed label of Republican/conservative/born-again/capitalist/ditto-head/right-winger and just talk to me as an American, on the common ground we both call America.

    Are we safer now than before 9/11? When you learn that behind the horse show runner, the #2 and #3 men in charge of emergency preparedness have zero experience in emergency preparedness, do you think we are safer?

    When you look at Michael Chertoff, the head of Homeland Security, a man with little experience in national security, do you feel secure?

    When men who never served in the military and have never seen young men die in battle send our young people off to war, do you think they know how to conduct a war? Do they know what it means to have your legs blown off for a threat that was never there?

    Do you really believe that turning over important government services to private corporations has resulted in better services for the people?

    Why do you hate our federal government so much? You have voted for politicians for the past 25 years whose main goal has been to de-fund the federal government. Do you think that cutting federal programs like FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers has been good or bad for America? GOOD OR BAD?

    With the nation's debt at an all-time high, do you think tax cuts for the rich are still a good idea? Will you give yours back so hundreds of thousands of homeless in New Orleans can have a home?

    Do you believe in Jesus? Really? Didn't he say that we would be judged by how we treat the least among us? Hurricane Katrina came in and blew off the facade that we were a nation with liberty and justice for all. The wind howled and the water rose and what was revealed was that the poor in America shall be left to suffer and die while the President of the United States fiddles and tells them to eat cake.

    That's not a joke. The day the hurricane hit and the levees broke, Mr. Bush, John McCain and their rich pals were stuffing themselves with cake. A full day after the levees broke (the same levees whose repair funding he had cut), Mr. Bush was playing a guitar some country singer gave him. All this while New Orleans sank under water.

    It would take ANOTHER day before the President would do a flyover in his jumbo jet, peeking out the widow at the misery 2500 feet below him as he flew back to his second home in DC. It would then be TWO MORE DAYS before a trickle of federal aid and troops would arrive. This was no seven minutes in a sitting trance while children read "My Pet Goat" to him. This was FOUR DAYS of doing nothing other than saying "Brownie (FEMA director Michael Brown), you're doing a heck of a job!"

    My Republican friends, does it bother you that we are the laughing stock of the world?

    And on this sacred day of remembrance, do you think we honor or shame those who died on 9/11/01? If we learned nothing and find ourselves today every bit as vulnerable and unprepared as we were on that bright sunny morning, then did the 3,000 die in vain?

    Our vulnerability is not just about dealing with terrorists or natural disasters. We are vulnerable and unsafe because we allow one in eight Americans to live in horrible poverty. We accept an education system where one in six children never graduate and most of those who do can't string a coherent sentence together. The middle class can't pay the mortgage or the hospital bills and 45 million have no health coverage whatsoever.

    Are we safe? Do you really feel safe? You can only move so far out and build so many gated communities before the fruit of what you've sown will be crashing through your walls and demanding retribution. Do you really want to wait until that happens? Or is it your hope that if they are left alone long enough to soil themselves and shoot themselves and drown in the filth that fills the street that maybe the problem will somehow go away?

    I know you know better. You gave the country and the world a man who wasn't up for the job and all he does is hire people who aren't up for the job. You did this to us, to the world, to the people of New Orleans. Please fix it. Bush is yours. And you know, for our peace and safety and security, this has to be fixed. What do you propose?

    I have an idea, and it isn't a horse show.

    Yours,
    Michael Moore

  2. Michael Moore says a lot of sense. I'm an atheist, despite my avatar and username, but his comments about supporting the poor are absolutely spot on. When you can't help those who need your help the most then it simply rips apart the facade of civilisation.

    The catastrophe was one of those accidents waiting to happen - let's face it when your city is below sea level you have to have a lot of trust in your sea defences. The reaction, however, was absolutely criminal. How could Bush claim that the head of FEMA had done all he could. Perhaps leaving the emergency buses until they were under water was a faux pas? Quite clearly he couldn't organise a pissup in a brewery, hardly an ideal coordinator under pressure.

    However...I'd prefer it if he (Moore) got his arrse on some remedial PT and had a shave though, minging fat kahnt.

    GW Bush. Four more years...yeehaw!
     
  3. Moore is a twat and liar of the worst type.

    He is however a fantastic director/politician (in the making).

    He knows how to appeal to the masses, and how to put across an idea without all the necessary information

    It's called indoctrination

    I seem to remember a certain bohemian corporal was good at that game. :roll:
     
  4. Haha Moore didn't even mention that Brown was SACKED from the head of an arabian horse show foundation.
     
  5. Wasn't the delay caused by the Democrat Governor who refused to acknowledge that she had no skill set or experience to deal with the situation?

    Please correct me Mr Moore if I am wrong
     
  6. Here is a prize F**k Witt with his own adgenda. He on some the very odd occaisions makes some sence but I for one am fed up with his ranting and BS!
    What a knacker!
     
  7. Bohemian?
     
  8. Bavarian :roll:
     
  9. Thanks, Bunny, I know. Actually, he was Austrian, but I suppose none of that relates to Michael Moore, whereas .....

    But on the bright side he can at least string a coherent sentence together. Oh, and he can spell. :wink:

  10. http://www.zipperfish.com/free/yaafm9.php

    Michael Moore isn't worth two pence, let alone this much time wasted on the worthless sod. He needs to just go away and be the beach whale that he is.

    He is a liar. And makes money for himself off the suffering of others.
     
  11. I did however hear Bush manage to mention the "war on Terror" during a visit to the Katrina damagede area.
     
  12. He was a bit of a homo though with a penchant for oddly styled facial hair and a questionable choice in music :p
     
  13. It's nice to see the "compassionate" democrat spokesmong Moore bathing in the blood of the victims to further his own political agenda.... as usual.
     
  14. I take what moore says with a pinch of salt, bush on the other hand is a stupid cnut who should be shot
     
  15. Ah yes the new american swearword. You are a liberal. Worse than calling some one a nigger or a faggot... :)

    Got some proof of the lies that M.Moore has been telling?

    He is a fat fcuker (or medium sized if you are a 'merkin) who makes his cash in dubious ways but outright lies??

    I think he is a bit craftier than that.
    He shows you images and tells you what you are looking at and then leaves it up to you to make the connection. A bit like a certain Mr Bush and his speeches prior to the invasion of Eye-rack managing to get the words 9/11 and Saddam Hussein into nearly every single speech he made on the subject,never once actually connecting the two just makeing sure that both of them were firmly connected in the listeners mind.

    Mr Moore does the same thing.
