Quoth the largest Socialist in America:
"They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own -- they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it," Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.
"I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to -- we need to see these jobs as something we some, that we collectively own as Americans and you can't just steal our jobs and take them someplace else," Moore concluded.
I wonder how Doughboy defines "wealthy". I suspect that like most who advocate confiscation of other people's money, he defines it as anyone who has a dollar more than he does.
I note for the record that Michael Moore has not voluntarily surrendered his wealth to the US Treasury for redistribution to those in need. He hasn't even given it to charity as far as I know. Nope. Lumpy wants your wealth taken away, and mine too, assuming that I become sufficiently wealthy, but he, like most liberals, wants to keep right on enjoying his wealth.
When fat boy Moore sells his California mansion and his luxury cars, donates all of his money to the government or any charity and moves into an apartment in Watts that's near the bus line, then he can talk about other people giving up their wealth. Until then, he needs to just shut his pie hole and go back to making anti-American movies that no one goes to see.
Oh, and I like his idea about how jobs belong to everyone and not to the employers. Every time I drive past an auto plant, I see thousands of union schlubs who can each put a part or two on a car as it passes by. Together, they can usually manage to turn out a car that's second only to those made by the Germans, the Japanese, and practically every other country that makes cars. But without the brains at the top--those "evil wealthy capitalists", there would not be raw materials coming in, or a distribution network to move the cars, and the factory itself would probably never have been built. So who really deserves the credit for the finished product, and for the jobs themselves? It might be fashionable in stupid circles to hate the rich, but I've never seen a poor person offer another person a job.
