Bill Moyers Journal on PBS is one of the last shows on that focuses on important issues, and this episode examines the critical mistakes we have built into our "representational" Government.
While most of the media has been held spellbound by a little boy Not trapped in a balloon, Big Banks and Insurance are quietly paying off our elected officials - to represent the interests of their profits instead of the American people or economy. Michael Moore's new movie, Capitalism A Love Story, gave people a small peak into some of these issues. We need to stop deluding ourselves into thinking that we have a democracy - we, the people, are no longer calling the shots. Our government has become a nightmare wrought with legal bribes and embedded corporate goons. Corporate personhood is the biggest issue standing in the way of a true economic recovery. Allowing the Corporation to infect every decision made by the government ensures a result that is bad for the consumer. A Healthcare bill with mandated new customers is nothing short of crafted lies from the Administration. The bailout, bonuses and foreclosures perpetrated by the Banking industry are nothing short of treason. Ignorance has come back to bite us in the @ss - now we are held hostage by Corporate bandits that demand tribute on every bill passed.
"Treason is a strong word, but not too strong, rather too weak to characterize the situation, in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the America people as any invading Army could be..." David Graham Phillips

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert took exception on Wednesday to the claim in Michael Moore's latest film that "capitalism is an evil and you cannot regulate evil."
"No, you can't regulate evil," Colbert acknowledged. "But I think I've got a way to chop it up, rebundle it, and sell it to Goldman Sachs."
Colbert then welcomed the "enemy of capitalism" himself to the show to talk about Capitalism: A Love Story.
Moore began by explaining the title of the film, saying, "The 'love story' applies to the wealthy, who love their money -- and of course they love our money too. ... They love all money, and they've tried to take as much of our money as they can."
"There can never be too much love," Colbert objected.
"It's not a democratic system," Moore retorted. "Capitalism is the enemy of democracy, because the people don't have a say in how this economy is run."
Colbert then raised the subject of the bailout, suggesting that "Wall Street was pissed off that they might get that three trillion dollars -- because it might come with strings attached. But they forgave Obama when he didn't add any." He noted that Moore is also a critic of Obama because "you think he's in the pocket of guys like Goldman Sachs."
"I point out in the film that Goldman Sachs is his number one private contributor," Moore agreed. "But I voted for the guy, I'm still hopeful that he's going to do the right things and side with us and not Wall Street. But the jury's out on that."
"You argue that things like Goldman Sachs have too much influence," Colbert went on. "Who then, Mr. Moore, do you think should have that kind of influence?"
"The people," Moore replied to loud applause. "The people of this country."Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert took exception on Wednesday to the claim in... more
This heart smart savvy story infused with humor, sprinkled with
sadness, flowing with hope got a standing ovation & there was
a standing ovation for Mr. Moore as well. He & his team touched
people's heart with this love story. Capitalism:, "alas my
love you done me wrong..."
Filmmaker Michael Moore's premier screening in Hollywood of Capitalism: A Love Story had a full house, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at AMPAS. It was organized by Overture Films.
Mr. Moore thanked everyone who worked with him on the film & noted people
like Jonas Salk family that was in attendance. They got a standing ovation.
The film was inspiring. One of our fellow Jelly Noosers got to meet her
hero MM and she quotes of the film :"I lauged, I cried, and I cheered.
It shows that no matter who we are we are in the same boat.
I admire Michael Moore's stance."
Now most everyone who saw the film is surely to be wondering, when will FDR's 2nd B O R
will be enacted, as I certainly am. America is a true democracy as it should be with
separation of church & state as well as seperation of economic system & state.
Here is a glimpse in pictures.This heart smart savvy story infused with humor, sprinkled with

Traverse City -- Michael Moore, by far the most successful documentary filmmaker of all time, is thinking of getting out of the business of making documentaries.
Not right away. He's got the sure-to-be-controversial "Capitalism: A Love Story" due in theaters Oct. 2. But after that?
"While I've been making this film I've been thinking that maybe this will be my last documentary," says the Flint native, who filmed and starred in such hits as "Sicko," "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 9/11." "Or maybe for a while."
Those three films make up half of the top six documentaries ever made, according to boxofficemojo.com. "Fahrenheit 9/11" is handily the highest earning documentary ever, with a domestic take of $119 million.
But now Moore's looking to branch out as a director.
"I have been working on two screenplays over the last couple of years," he says. "One's a comedy, one's a mystery, and I really want to do this."
Hmm...he actually has worked as a feature narrative director before....
Canadian Bacon anyone?

Oscar-winning documentarian Michael Moore (Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine) finally has given a name to his newest film. Capitalism: A Love Story opens Oct. 2. According to Moore, the film explores the effects that corporate dominance and uncontrolled profit motives have on people’s lives.
In a written statement, Moore said he thought it was time to make a relationship movie. “It will be the perfect date movie. It’s got it all — lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It’s forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s Capitalism.Oscar-winning documentarian Michael Moore (Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine)... more
