MICHAEL MOORE PREDICTS “ASS WHOOPIN OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS” FOR DEMS

Like a lot of cocktail-party progressives, the porcine provocateur is increasingly frustrated that the Dems can’t get Obamacare done, even with control of Congress and the White House. In this interview with Joy(less) Behar, he makes the following prediction: They are in for an ass whoopin of biblical proportions … If they don’t turn this [...]

SOCIALIZED MEDICINE & CAREER CHOICES

Jethro Bodine, that inimitable character from the old Beverly Hillbillies show, could never quite decide whether to become a brain surgeon or a fry cook. Sadly, such such career dilemmas are all too real under socialized medicine. Arnold Kling relays the following gag that illustrates this reality as it manifests itself in Cuba: One Cuban young woman complains to another. “He lied to [...]

CUBAN HEALTH CARE: THE TRUE COST

I just stumbled across this excellent post about “CastroCare.? It’s author does a great job of summarizing the questions that should be asked of anyone still clueless enough to think Cuban health care is “free?: Would you trade your right to sue a doctor for free healthcare? Would you take a 96% pay cut in [...]

STOSSEL BUSTS MOORE ON CUBAN HEALTH CARE

It looks like ABC is the only representative of the establishment media with the testículos to expose Michael Moore as a fraud and to tell the truth about Cuban health care. In a 20/20 segment, John Stossel debunks the absurd claims made by the porcine provocateur about Castrocare. For example, on Moore’s claim that the CIA verifies his [...]

SOCIALIZED MEDICINE, GOVT BUREAUCRATS AND BOGUS HEALTH CARE STATISTICS

It is common for advocates of government-run health care to quote WHO statistics in order to document the alleged inferiority of American health care. A perennial favorite purports to show that the U.S. barely edges out Cuba in some categories. I have pointed out before that the WHO makes no attempt to verify the health [...]

MICHAEL MOORE’S CUBAN FRAUD: REUTERS COMES CLEAN—ALMOST

Among Michael Moore’s many contemptible characteristics is his willingness to capitalize on the misery of ordinary people. His disgraceful exploitation of Lila Limbscomb in Fahrenheit 9-11 is probably the most egregious example, but his shameless use of three 9-11 responders in SiCKO was nearly as bad. The one redeeming feature of Moore’s Cuban odyssey was [...]

CUBAN HEALTH CARE & THE USEFUL IDIOTS AT REUTERS

In an article purporting to analyze SiCKO’s absurdly flattering depiction of Cuba’s system of socialized medicine, Reuters is studiously credulous about the quality of medical care under Castro’s regime. After a perfunctory caveat about the “shabby? condition of Cuban hospitals, the “analysis? recites the following canard: The health system built by President Fidel Castro’s government [...]

Cuban Health Care Stinks According to the New York Times

Like the proverbial broken clock, even the New York Times is occasionally right. Although the psychic pain of doing so must have been immense, the editors of the Gray Lady allowed Anthony DePalma to include a couple of actual facts in this piece on Sicko and the Cuban health care system. Particularly poignant are the passages relating [...]

Michael Moore: Would You Buy a Used Car from this Man?

It has long been my belief that, however much contempt Michael Moore may feel for conservatives, it is as nothing compared to the disdain he has for the “progressives? who actually take him seriously. How else can one explain the following howler, produced in his recent Time interview? Every fact in my films is true. [...]

Cuban Health Care: Moore BS

The “news? media is already providing fleshy film-maker Michael Moore with plenty of free publicity for his upcoming “documentary? about American health care. The latest example is an interview in Time. Among the softball questions tossed in Moore’s direction was a predictable query regarding his recent trip to Cuba. In response, Moore provided a shopworn [...]
