Sicko!!!


So I know someone who knows someone who knows someone...and I saw the new Michael Moore movie Sicko. It doesnt come to theater until next friday.

If you are an American, or international other looking to move to America, please see this movie. It was a real eye opener and has honestly made me retihink moving to the states in september.

It doesnt matter if you loath Michael Moore, or Love him to peices. This movie is so important.

**Sicko is about the American Health Care System

Caution: Spoiler ahead....

Best line of the movie?

Michael takes three 9/11 rescue workers to Guantanamo Bay, the only U.S. soil that offers free health care.....to prisoners, real threats to national security.

Michael Moore is in a boat of the coast of the prison, and through a mega phone screams "theses 9/11 rescue workers want health care, because they cant afford it. Please can we have free care. Like the free care you're giving to Al Qaeda"

I cried laughing....

Best Part of the Movie?

One of those narrow minded assholes runs an "I hate Michael Moore webiste". This guy was going to have to shut down his website, becuase of his sick wife and medical bills. He could no longer afford to keep the webiste up.....

Michael Moore sent him a check for 12.000 dollars to cover the costs of his wife's medical bills, ANONYMOUSLY. The guy has no idea...until the movie comes out next week. LOL!!!!

I saw that bit on the trailer. I cannot wait for this movie. As someone with two sick people in my family, I can attest to the failure that is our health care. I wonder if we are ever going to see change.

Welcome back to Blogland. We missed you. And yes, our health care system does suck. That's one thing the Canadians definitely do better than we do. That and producing acting giants like Dave Coulier.

Oh, Michael Moore is such an extremist... I approve of his work though and the attention it gets. These topics need more attention.

I am looking forward to the movie. I just watched Roger and Me yesterday - very depressing flick.

I wonder which number is greater, Americans travelling to Canada to use our healthcare system or Canadians travelling to the US to pay for better healthcare.

Vote Ficus!

You're thinking of moving here?

I saw the movie today, it was great. America is nver going to change, so unfortunetly the movie will serve no purpose.

Princess Pessimism said...

Ben, I think it will....Regardless of what your politics are, or beliefs are, or whatever...you're affected with this problem if you live in the states. Wasnt it great when he took them to Cuba, and they got free health care?? LOL!!

I am interested in seeing this movie, especially since my husband and I own our own business, are tax payers and we can't even afford our own health insurance b/c they charge much more to sole proprieters since they do not have a group health insurance.

If it could work here to have socialized health care, I would do it in a heart beat. But, they have too many problems with people flooding this country every day that innidate our health care system and everything else and until that is fixed, we will not be able to do it.
