Can't see what he's looking at PLUS Frank Douglas COMMENT #2 PLUS equating Michael Moore with Sean Hannity= me screaming, pulling my hair out, putting my foot through my computer screen
I haven't seen Hannity's TV show for a long time. How can you win a argument with some jerk that has a flag flying behind his head in lights. And what's with the road signs with Hannity's name on them?
Michael was very graceful to even go on the show, but it's interesting, because I don't think I've ever seen Hannity so civil before and especially with somebody who leans against capitalist/corporatist agendas. Is "The Hannitizer" going soft?

Moore probably told him beforehand what the deal would be - you start going off on me the way you do your other guests, you start pushing me around the way you did that poor sad little man Alan Colmes (bless him for sticking around so long, it must have been a decent paycheck, useless as he was) and I get up and walk out.
Moore didn't need to be there, and Hannity knew it.
So this is Sean Hannity's show. No wonder the US public is so mis-informed. Too bad M.M. can't say that the WTC 911 was an inside job. That the heaps of explosive material evidence prove. That no Arabs needed to participate and probably didn't. The millions slaughtered and maimed, widowed and left homeless for control and theft of oil sure have proved very profitable for some sociopath led, major supply, security, war machine and oil companies etc. To end the madness go;

Now I remember why I blocked Faux News Network on my cable box..
Hannity, the biggest lying sack of crap in the right-wing media world (Limbaugh runs a CLOSE second) didn't bloviate nearly as much as I had supposed he would, and small wonder- Moore was heavily armed with barbs of OBJECTIVE truth.
Almost all of the right wing media entertainment stars trade in SUBJECTIVE RATIONALIZTION (see Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" for the meme). This frees them from, among other things, inconvenient truths and those niggling little details like stubborn facts. In this way, a goon like Tim McVeigh can put a truck bomb right in front of a nursery and justify it because the government has declared war on other goons like David Koresh.

I've seen Hannity behave like this and O'Reilly too. It's rare and it's striking. It happens when the person being interviewed (or interviewing them) really knows their stuff, doesn't get flustered or defensive, has a sense of humor, and unapologetically continues to say the truth. Michael Moore, Phil Donahue, Jon Stewart, Al Franken, and Al Sharpton have all elicited more civil behavior from these Fox bullies. When it simply is impossible for them to bully they don't go there. It's a beautiful thing to behold. They are revealed more clearly for who they are--which is a lot more palatable.
Janeane Garofalo had one particularly memorable exchange in which she completely disarmed Tucker Carlson. He became meek almost apologetic.
Brad has these higher consciousness qualities, too. He perplexed John Fund to the point that Fund simply left the phone interview. Knowing your stuff, remaining calm, unapologetically repeating the truth. It's the way to go.

"I took the 9/11 commission report at its word"
That about sums it up, Sean. And the Bible (except all those parts that Jesus said). And every line the GOP feeds you. That's why you aren't a journalist.
I thought Micheal did a wonderful job of stating the obvious about Jesus vis-a-vis the behavior of the USA and republicanist "patriots", which for some reason, is never stated directly to them. I love the part at the very end about Sean not changing Mike's heart. Priceless!
I heard Thomas Franks, ("The Wrecking Crew", "What's The Matter With Kansas"), being interviewed somewhere recently and I he was lamenting the fact that there haven't been any populist hero's in the vein of Upton Sinclair.
I like Franks and I'm no expert on Sinclair, but I just about fell over. How could Franks forget about Michael Moore?
Overall, Moore is getting as much positive television coverage as I've ever seen, and it's about time!
There was one stupid headline in my local newspaper about "Capitalism, A Love Story", asking "Fact or Fiction?" Where are the articles about Limbaugh "Fact or Fiction" - COME ON!
Oops! That's Thomas Frank, not Franks!

Comment #8 Yes, there are good moments of these people on television. They aren't always like this, though they are enough to note...
"Al Kida, I ain't afraid of no Al Kida, I'm afraid of Al Cracker" - Chris Rock
The majority of the 9/11 commissioners don't believe in their own report, why would anyone else?
I'm not a big Hannity fan, one way or the other. I definitely have a problem with Michael Moore, though. The interview, in my opinion, was superficial. And, knowing what I know about Michael Moore, how he operates, taking for himself and screwing over the little guy, the guy, btw, he says he stands up for. And, yes, I CAN PROVE IT! See the movie, "Shooting Michael Moore."
All the Catholic Church, tax bracket small talk pales to what Michael is really all about. The mentioned movie above was created by an old claass mate acquaintance of Moore, a guy by the name of Kevin Leffler. You can see excerpts of the movie here:
A Leffler quote regarding Michael Moore in the clip above: "Mike will do anything, Mike will say anything, that benefits Mike."
There are many detailed examples of Mike's screwing the little guy and cheating the system in the clip and the movie.
Did Michael Moore cut that guy's arms off! Actually I'm pretty sure he tried to sue Mike and lost.
Is Mike supposed to enrich everybody he puts in a movie. If they would all get behind Mike and work for equality, instead of sitting on their asses complaining, they might get somewhere.
Get out of here!

What are those spooky waves of black clouds that keep rolling in behind Hannity as he speaks...holy shit! His studio's in Mordor!
I saw Moore’s movie last night. It is a power and personal movie about the dismantling of Americas ability to survive and we had better do something about it!
I would only change one thing in the movie. In the end credits it says:
Walmart isn’t calling their employees peasants anymore, but they are still calling them associates.
I would change the word associates to “human resources.” I’ve always hated that term.

Michael Moore is a hypocritical overweight slob who panders his movies to conspiracy theorists. I don’t know what some of you see in this clip above but I see a liar. Mass that week was about the Gospel of Mark regarding marriage and not on the Gospel of Mathew regarding giving your wealth to the poor. In the clip Moore looked a little uncomfortable when positioned with the prospect of giving his millions up. What Moore wants for this country is the same socio-economic system found in Europe. Where you have aristocrats and then everybody else. If you’re not born into wealth then you’ll never have it. What a hypocrite because he surely wasn’t born into it!
Warmonger Hannity Helps Kids Whose Parents Killed By Wars He Mongers For
Saw the despicable warmonger Sean Hannity recently (9/9/09) talking about the “Freedom Concerts” he participates in the purpose of which, he says, is “to raise money for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, which is for the children of these slain heroes. These guys go off and fight for your liberty, for our freedom and for my right to have a big mouth on TV and radio...And so we --- we kind of forget these kids that (are) left behind that don't have their moms and dads so we put these concerts together. And last year was a record. We did eight shows.”
Glossary Note: A “slain hero” being, for jingoist jerk Hannity, any American who died while doing --- well, anything the mindlessly militaristic Hannity thinks is heroic. A somewhat tautological definition, I must admit. But, this is the way moral idiots like Hannity think.
But, no, Hannity, I do not kind of forget these kids whose parents were killed, in part, because of warmonger bastards like you who support these unGodly, unConstitutional conflicts in Iraq/Afghanistan. And I also do not forget the kids of non-Americans whose parents were killed/murdered by our military. But, no concerts for them, right?! Their freedom meant nothing, right?!
And to think you call yourself a Christian! What a liar you are!
Finally, if you were a Christian --- which you are not! --- you would know that all good things, if they are truly good, come from God! Thus, if there is “liberty” or “freedom” anywhere it is due to the grace of God and not our military!
You are an embarrassment to the cause of Christ....

Ahhh the foolish are wise in their own eyes.
Cleaning Sean's clock is a bit overstated. the interview was kind of pointless, neither of them made any strong points. Sounded like a bunch of bla bla bla to me.
As far as MMs comment, what would Jesus do to the Taliban? well, Jesus was not violent, but neither did he condone or tolerate or pat people on the head when they were naughty. He called sin sin and he cast out demons, and told people to straingthen up and fly right absically. Now where people get mixed up is this.
Jesus is not the one who dealt out discipline or "punishment" as some would see it. That was God the Fathers job. God the Righteous Judge. Jesus the Son, is the manifestation of Gods love, and it is his desire that all would come to know Him and accept him as their Saviour. and he plainly has said that if one chooses to not believe and receive then they would be in the lake of fire where there is not quenching of thirst and pain and suffering does not cease. I think that is where the Taliban will be.
I don't think Jesus has a problem with people having wealth. but like the parable of the servant with the talents, what important when it comes to money is whether you are a good steward. Do you hoard and not give at all? the Word also says the man who doesnt work doesnt eat too. I am all for helping people who truly need it, but if you are healthy and able bodied with a nickle of sense in your head, then you should do whatever you can to work, whether it's as a janitor, a fast food cook, a childcare worker, a teacher, a chef a ceo or anything in between. if you don't know how to do it, try to learn. Think of "Pursuit of Happiness" or "From Homeless to Harvard" or all the many other stories of people who were down that decided to not be a victim and do something with their lives.
I give my 10% tithe and I give offerings as led by the spirit. But I also work hard and try to be as wise with my finances as I can. I came from a family that had used gov't aide on occasion, but my parents worked hard too and got off assistance as soon as they could.
All I'm saying is work, be wise in your finances, give charitably, don't baby those who want to suck on the teat and never grow up, but give a hand up to those who are willing to put in the effort. Don't underestimate the power of your enemies, as evil often comes in the form of light. keep your friend close and enemies closer and MOST OF ALL... Trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding. Jesus is coming abck soon, and I am afraid MOST Americans are not going to be ready.
