    Why don't people like Moore and Penn and Glover just move to Venezuela and Cuba since they adore their governments there so much?

    What would they have to whine and complain about then? Besides that, they'd be poor with little chance to make money... the MO here is they have to be able to make millions while complaining about making millions. Can't do that in Cuba or in Hugo's backyard.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

I just hate this guy, especially since the amount that he has profited, and yet continues to hate capitalism, and it's promoters.

    If you actually saw it, you'd know that he doesn't hate capitalism. He hates some of the inherent unfairness that has developed in the version of the capitalist system we've created.

    His suit would actually fit in with his view - i.e. - he (and his crew) did the work on the film; but corporations are taking money from him instead of paying him what he deserves.

    Thinking that workers deserve a share of the profits from their work doesn't mean you "hate capitalism". It means you think it should be practiced more fairly. Obviously, that's not "pure capitalism". But there really is no such thing.

    However, claiming that government bailouts are evil - and then taking them - is (to me) more hypocritical. Because that's much more black and white.

    Not at all; I said that he thinks that workers deserve credit for their work. That's not "hating capitalism". That's suggesting that people deserve to be paid fairly for their work.

    Do you think capitalism is about NOT paying people for their work?
