The thing I absolutely cannot stand about the blistering hypocrisy of wealthy socialism peddlers like Michael Moore, is that they used the ladder of capitalism to climb to dazzling heights. Once there, they want to yank away that ladder from the rest of us and then hand us the rickety rope of socialism. There is only one word to describe this behavior and that is selfishness.
We all know damn well that if these zany redistribution of wealth schemes were ever enacted the way Moore suggests, his selfish lard ass would be one of the first to hide and protect his own fortune.
If Michael Moore wants to convince me or anyone else of this "finite money" theory and the need to share, then he needs to start writing some really big checks to the U.S. Treasury. If Moore isn't willing to do that, then he needs to find a quite corner somewhere and start eating a really big STFU salad!
I am a black conservative from a black conservative family. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and finally settled in New Jersey. Throughout my life I knew I did not share many of the common beliefs of other American blacks.
For starters, I never took to the term African-American. I have meet too many real Africans who are now Americans, to ever with a straight face say we share something in common other than skin tones. Their history and culture is truly a unique and is a completely different experience from my own. My culture is distinctly American, from the way I speak, think, dress and act and you know what else? I love it! So for me, I will always be an American who just happens to be black.
I put myself and my beliefs out here in cyberspace, to show my fellow blacks that there is something more. That one need not accept the false promise of the next social program, the belief in government as savior or the next Democratic candidate will right all wrongs. That true Hope and Change comes from belief in yourself, in a nation that allows dynamic movement if you are bold enough, smart enough and brave enough to make it happen.
