'Capitalism: A Love Story'
(Michael Moore, et al / DVD / R / (2009) 2010 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)
Overview: Academy Award® winning filmmaker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, Roger & Me) examines the effect of corporate dominance on Americans in Overture Films’ riveting documentary, 'Capitalism: A Love Story.'
DVD: 'Capitalism: A Love Story,' by Michael Moore REALLY hit a nerve with me ... and I will hope, with all you too. It's not just about Republicans or Democrats, it's about crooks on both sides of the issue. All are accountable in this current and ongoing financial mess.
From Hannity's God-Ronald Regan himself, to Clinton and W, this was a never ending cycle not so much of capitalism, but of greed overall. Banks, Corporations, and money running this country. The Treasury department full of AIG people allowing fellow competition to fail while fattening their own pockets and that of their friends.
All are accountable. This movie really hits home when you see every day people being jived by the very people designed to take care of them. People loosing their homes and being thrown into the streets, one Congress-woman fired up with all the shenanigans going on while at the same time, leading Democrats are making back door deals with Bush and the Republican parties not for the betterment of the country, but for their own re-election.
The outcry became, do nothing, jobs are lost, economy collapses. So in their own personal survival greed, the Congress reached across the board and bailed the very banks who brought us to the brink of economic armageddon, only to see those banks payout their own bonuses before anything else.
In the true world of Capitalism, if you fail, you fail. Nobody bails out homeowners who lose their homes and are thrown into the street. Capitalism in reality is survival of the fittest, and yet here, when the Banks and mortgage companies failed, the Congress, not the people, bailed them out.
