Michael Moore's obsession with Canada- a country in which 60% of the citizens would fail their own citizenship test (apparently only six out of ten polled can recite the first two lines of "O Canada")- should actually be a national embarrassment. Not only are Canadians not up to his intellectual snuff (re: POLL, COMPLETE INABILITY TO PASS CITIZENSHIP TEST) but I personally doubt that Moore would give up his wealth and celebrity (or should that be notoriety?) by renouncing his American citizenship for Canadian citizenship which would entail higher taxes, longer waits for a GP and for various medical services, as well as in the emergency room (indeed, this report suggests that there is dissatisfaction of the current system. Strange.), no absolute right to property, a skewed electoral process and lower audience levels. Out of a country of over 31 million people, halve that significantly by those who cannot by his books or see his "movies", don't know who he is, or don't care, and those who don't like him. He can prove me wrong, but his record at proving anything is extremely poor.
Several cases in point:
The French are so far in the red, they can't actually pay for their own healthcare, despite what Moore claims in his new "movie", "Sicko".
Cuba is a Third-World dictatorship whose hospitals can be described as "filthy". There are no basic medicines. People die from conditions that would be treatable in the US and Canada (yes, Canada).
He's not working-class, nor is he from Flint, Michigan. What a pretender to the blue-collar throne.
The one "blue-collar job" he had he quit. This little lie is listed with the complete omissions of terrorist training camps, Saddam Hussein's dictatorial rule of Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Has he been under a rock that he does not know what's going on? A million-dollar rock in Manhattan, maybe.
Moore has no problem taking support from terrorists, such is his hatred for America, the only country that would allow him to be a big, fat, albeit rich, liar.
The healthcare system in Canada is not universal. Dental health and drug plans are covered separately. Various procedures and treatments are no covered at all. A family friend- a nurse who worked in the system was betrayed by the system. She had a kind of cancer that was not covered under our "universal" system. She has since passed on. To me, she embodies the failure of a system that was supposed to help her. In America, you don't get what you don't pay for. In Canada- at least for my friend- you don't get what you DO pay for. There is a good set of criticisms here. Better yet, just ask sick Canadians- or any Canadian who has been in a Canadian hospital- how satisfied they are. Moore never factored this in. Canada is the opposite of the US. It has to be, or wannabe socialist/uber-capitalist Moore could not function.
Charlton Heston in Bowling for Columbine seemed to change his neckties in under two seconds. His infamous (at least by Moore) speeches after the deaths at a high school in Columbine were the height of insensitivity- if they occurred, which they did not. There are several factual errors in that "movie", as well as others, but this one stands out for me.
In short, Michael Moore is incapable of exerting any intellectual effort into anything. It is easier to lie than it is to tell the truth, that being that Moore is despicable man whose hatred of the very system that allows him to do what he does and get away with it get in the way of very simple truths.

Four out of ten Koreans between the ages of twenty and forty can't give the correct date of the war that separated the well-fed and materialistic South from the starving and utterly brain-washed North. It's as though they became victims of Canada's history program. Their views on the Chinese and Soviet-backed invasion are dim, at least verbally.
These college students do not need the benefit of certain special interest groups. They've got the irresponsibility and selfishness thing down-pat.
This managing director is glad to shoot himself in the foot for Cannes-award winning actress, Jeon Do-Yeon. Good. She's like Helen Mirren, I think. She doesn't need to shill for anything like lesser actors and actresses do. That is a very un-Korean thing to do but it's all about substance, baby.
For people who still think Islam is a woman-friendly religion of peace and hugs need to view this. Here is lovely bit of misogyny:
The weakness with which women were created is the secret behind their attractiveness and appeal to their husbands. It is the source of women’s seduction of men, and one of the elements strengthening the bond between husband and wife. This is one of the wondrous miracles of Allah: The strength of a woman lies in her weakness. Her power of seduction and appeal lie in her emotions, which might overpower her mind at times. ...
People still whine about Saint Paul. He never went anywhere near this crap. In Islam, a woman, stupid, weak and yet wily though she is, is to go to her hsuband no matter what she is doing. In the middle of changing the baby? Tough. Get a move on, girl, before he whacks you with the frying pan.
What was said in the letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians:
22Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.[a] 28In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30because we are members of his body. 31"Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." 32This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
I don't recall reading in that the Koran, or from the loony Saudis, how, though a
wife must respect her husband, a man must lay down his life for her and his
family. It is likened to Christ laying down His life for the Church. O, the chivalry! Is this seen in the Islamic world? Is here, here, here, here or here? Maybe in Saudi Arabia where women must cover from head to toe and not drive cars. Wait. That doesn't sound right.
The Taliban is on a mission, and that mission is to be the scum of the earth, as witnessed here.
But, but... I thought it was supposed to change everything. Gee, I guess it was all a gigantic waste of taxpayer's time (and money...and democracy...and common sense...and decency...and personal views...and pretty much everything).
I hardly have the space to type how completely stupid the world is at the moment. I'll just stop here. It's far too depressing to continue.

The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions:
Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois
Cases in point:
Special-needs children were left to die in an Iraqi orphanage. Parallels to orphanages in Russia and Romani are drawn. The countdown to American blame is on.
The Satanic Verses author, Salman Rushdie, is awarded a knighthood and Pakistan threatens attacks. The level of dhimmitude that has gripped parts of western Europe and North America is so great that someone will likely placate these bearded fascists. Margaret Thatcher never placated the IRA and she was a real...
A rough creature slouches before Bethlehem. If the Palestinian Christians entertained any illusions that the same Muslims who blow themselves up and invaded the Church of the Nativity were their friends, they should no longer do so. It is also time they stopped running. Bethlehem is Jesus' land. People have run from Christ before and it's never ended well.
Similarly, Gaza Christians are warned to submit to Islam (which, I'm sure, some will liken to a spiritual quest). Submit to this.
I thought hogwans were supposed to make people smarter. Not Ban Ki-Moon, obviously. Global warming triggered the crisis in Darfur, not the Arab-backed Janjaweed.
The UN continues to be sickening.
North Korea fires another missile. South Korea does nothing as its end approaches.
North Korean lackies go bankrupt. Japan still wants a pound of flesh (well, so does everyone who has been invaded by Japan).
Korean presidential hopeful, Lee Myun-Bak, proves he is no better than any other craven capitalist out to make a won over North Korea. Kaesong is, in truth, an intended North Korean cash-cow, part owned by various South Korean companies. It is not as lucrative as some may have wanted it, however.
Now they've done it! No one messes with Christmas! Can we stop with the multi-cultural, feel-good sentiment now and tell the ingrates to go to hell?
The Vatican issues Ten Commandments for drivers. Who says the Church is never involved?

Father's Day- like a barbecue...for your dad!
Someone is in a rush (or is a Russian, as the case may be) to give Kim Jong-Il his misgotten gains. I don't believe the closed nuclear plants will remain so for very long. Where is the incentive? North Korea has had 60 days to comply with demands to shut down their reactors and allow inspectors in. Nothing has been done. Back to square one.
Maybe someone should ask this moron where his Mohammed is. An Edward G. Robinson or Police Chief Wiggim voice would be good for effect.
In case we forgot that moral relativism as it pertains to the "wonderful" world of Islam was a complete pile of dingo kidneys, the preceding are very good reminders.
A pastor is nearly killed by raging mob for his beliefs in India. This is another thing we should be concerned with. One would think that India would be the complete opposite of its mortal enemy, Pakistan, even if for no reason other than to be contrary. India has a law against conversions, albeit impractical and rather discriminatory. Before conversions are decried as forced or unwelcome, think of it this way. Someone could ask another about his religion. Under the law, that person could be fined. The law also smacks of government interference in the lives of adults. Whose business is it if a man converts from this or that religion? Providing he is not coerced, why would anyone care? One would think that India would worry more about its air quality and maintaining its economic boom than the private lives of its citizens. The pastor in question was not like a certain religion one could mention. Let's not forget how a Christian spent her adult life looking after the poor the Indian government couldn't deal with.
Now for something completely different....
Liberals stealing money and covering it up? No! It can't be! They've never done that before!
Paris Hilton is still in jail. Angelina Jolie must take her self-righteous, self-important persona off the radar NOW.
I will close this with a shot to end all shots.

So many things happen in June.
Did you know that June 2nd is Festa della Repubblica in Italy. Remember- no one ever says Italy.
June 17th is Father's Day. I realise in this day and age when we should fight male oppression...or something....we should not celebrate UnWomyn's Day (or is is Dae...Dai...damn you, teachers, for teaching me how to spell!) but really, who is the man who opens jars for you, drives you to your friend's house (the one with the swimming pool) and teaches you how to make scrambled eggs? Are you trying to say that scrambled eggs are wrong? I don't want to live in a world without scrambled eggs and toast!
Here is a recipe for scrambled eggs and sausage.
June 19th is the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival. The excitement, the danger, the paddling! I don't know about you, but my money's on the green boat!
June 21st is the summer solstice, the start of barbecue season for people who don't like meat.
There are some birthdays and other things tucked in there but I think this wraps up the bulk of things going on in June.
