Forum Post: Michael Moore on Pierce Morgan said "global warming caused generators to fail"

For those of you who think Michael Moore is really knowledgeable need to look at the interview he did with Pierce Morgan on CNN. When the subject of why the generators failed at one of the hospitals was brought up Michael Moore said that they failed because of "global warming".

But yet when Katrina went through the same catastrophy, Bush was the blame.

The devistation that has happened to NY/NJ is 4 times a bad as Katrina and the shit is just starting to hit the fan. People think that things will be normal in 3 or 4 weeks.

Well suprise - from what I have seen 6 months from now they will be still cleaning up. You can be sure you will hear people screeming for help as you have never before becaue of what has happened.

But yet, you will never hear one bad word spoken about Obama because the news media won't allow that to happen.

However, as all goes, so goes Obama and Mitt Romney will take the lead and make sure business is taken care of.

Obama is done like burned toast.

So Romney can take us one step shy of Anarcho-capitalism. Let the neolibs move us closer to Anarcho-capitalism and the neocons back into war. Great fucking plan. Yeah, you're insane.

Gee maybe there has been little criticism of Pres. Obama's handling of the disaster response because he appointed the highly competent and experienced Craig Fugate as FEMA Director. The same guy Jeb Bush used, who handled many natural disasters in Florida. As opposed to Bush Jr. who appointed the wholly incompentent Commissioner of the International Arabian Horse Association! Who was forced to resign in rightful disgrace after his disasterous fucked up non-response to Katrina.

'you will never hear one bad word spoken about Obama because the news media won't allow that to happen.' - or maybe it's because Gov. Christie has given Pres. Obama nothing but praise for his efforts and leadership and the response of FEMA. I'm fairly certain that if Chris Christie had a problem he would let the press know.

'make sure business is taken care of' - do you have any idea wtf you're talking about?! Business is sitting on 4 trillion dollars of cash, record amounts of cash on hand and continued record profits! If this isn't being taken care of I don't know what is! Business needs to be 'taken care of'?! Wow. Just wow.

But just for snicks, humor me. What exactly do you think Romney will do to 'make sure business is taken care of' and how will it help the economy? lmfao.

From the beginning of this post to the end, you really have no idea what you're talking about. Breathtaking stupidity.

I would think that since Katrina lessons would have been learned but they have not - hospitals shut down because of generator failures - same thing happened during Katrina -

People stranded on roof tops - same thing happened during Katrina

The list goes on and on but today it's acceptable because now they can blame "global warming" instead of blaming the govenor or the mayor

Lets see who does a better job down the road when it comes to taking care of business - will it be Cristie (R) NJ or will it be Cumo (D) NY

[-] 3 points by Buttercup (1067) 1 year ago

Uh yeah you don't know what you're talking about. FEMA was being run by a horse trainer! It was the complete lack of preparation and pre-planning, by a horse trainer! who didn't know what the fuck he was doing, in a position he had no business being in, a complete lack of planning in advance of Hurricane Katrina that was the problem. OMG. Do you read what you write?

Do you read at all? The bipartisan Congressional Report on Katrina, formally titled 'A Failure of Initiative'. As in, complete lack of planning and preparedness!

'will it be Cristie (R) NJ or will it be Cumo (D) NY' - Logical fallacy. Red Herring. Let's try this again. What will Romney do to 'make sure business is taken care of' that will be helpful to the economy?

Because I'm fascinated by neoliberals and Anarcho-capitalists. How come you're in favor of neoliberal economic policies? Do you support all neoliberal policies? Which ones are you most in favor of and why? For instance, do you agree with Romney that FEMA should be eliminated and privatized? How very Anarcho-capitalist.

Maybe Romney will win, make lot's of mob ties and get reconstruction going. I'm thinking 'Big Love' meets 'The Sapranos'.

[-] 2 points by Buttercup (1067) 1 year ago

Romney said he will eliminate FEMA and privatize it. Only for war will Republican's spend federal funds. They have nothing against government spending. So long as it's spent on wars and the military. Education, infrastructure, disaster relief - no.

The hollowing out of the middle class, less and less opportunity for the least fortunate in society, crumbling infrastructure, happening in slow motion over decades. It only takes a day for a hurricanes affects to be revealed. Both are national disasters.

The mob? Romney should know. Same thing as his vulture capitalist business schemes. Wonder who pays more taxes Mitt Romney or the mob.

Michael Moore is a great soldier for the 99%. Does he support Pres Obama!? And he was right that global warming is responsible for the storm and therefore the effects.

FEMA serviced people immediately under Pres Obama.

Under Bush, Brownie (who criticized the Fema response was too fast) took almost a week to do anything. Because hates black people right?

Kanye West saying that on tv about Bush is in my top 10 television moments in history!

I don't really like Kanye West.... but what he said in his off the cuff speech was noble and accurate.

"They have M16s and are locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill and I expect they will," Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco said.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

And when General Honore arrived he berated the troops who were riding around locked & loaded.

I ain't a big Kanye fan either, but it was amazing to see him say that. And the squirming of Mike Myers (I think) was priceless.

LOL.

Buttercup has a problem with future tense references.

It's been 4 days, and the squawking has JUST begun to start percolating. I'm sure that when the pressure increases and things don't get done any more quickly, with any better results, Christie WILL be vocal about it, as well as every other New Yorker.

Bush didn't come under fire right away, and the stuff he gets blamed for today are the exact same things the victims will be able to say about Obama because the Federal Government is a massively corrupt and inefficient monster.

What I find REMARKABLE is that even after Katrina-millions of New Yorkers FAILED to take the necessary and INTELLIGENT precautions to protect themselves and stock up on necessary supplies etc. Even though they had PLENTY of time and warning to do so. They are FURIOUS that they have run out of batteries, and fuel, and food and water and that the STORES aren't fully stocked and ready to go to relieve their suffering! The Government is not backing up trucks into their neighborhoods and handing out the crap they want and they are livid about it.

A city that depends on "city" or "state" or "government" provided transportation, aid, supplies, etc will ALWAYS be crippled when the OTHERS they depend on cannot instantly, or even eventually restore what they have lost. The LESS society depends on it's government to provide for or to them, the MORE likely they are to return their lives to normal quickly and effectively.

ok Shayneh's Mom. It doesn't matter if it was future tense. It was a Red Herring.

And coming from you - a person who denies that extreme levels of wealth inequality is harmful to the economy. And even that it exists at all. Because you know people who have gotten raises! lol. Got any more solid economic data from your friends and neighbors that the world can use?

[-] -2 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Shayneh's Mom? You still pulling umptions out of your *ss? Why is that?

But please...provide the "solid written data" that demonstrates that I deny that extreme wealth inequality is harmful to the economy and that it even exists. Please.

[-] -2 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Yep,. Just as I thought. NOWHERE in what I said do I deny extreme wealth inequality is harmful to the economy and that it even exists. I demonstrated that using generalizations and twisting of statistics to forward your own agenda makes you look idiotic to everyone whose own personal experience proves you're reaching.

[-] 1 points by Buttercup (1067) 1 year ago

ok Betsy whatever you say.

You are right and it's already happening - just watch CNN

[-] -1 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

It's all over various news sources. Funny thing is, I can't find a damn thing showing celebrations and dancing in the streets because people have been told their power will ONLY be out for a week and that they'll ONLY have to wait 4-5 days more to get gas! "Glory be! Our government will save us....eventually!"

[-] -1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

That's what Obama wants everyone to think - Wolf Blitzer made a comment when it was stated that the "Calvary is on the way". His comment was "I hope they get there soon".

He didn't do that with President Bush - CNN was all over him and everyone else like there was no tomorrow. But it's ok for the Calvary to eventually get there at their own good time.

The guys in Benghazi called and pleaded for the Cavalry. They got ignored. Good luck New York.

Try not to compare 2,500 deaths to 25.

The gov is creating a monster with FEMA. Its only a matter of time before FEMA and the TSA are working hand in hand with each other.

They already took the TSA and put them at the NFL stadiums. TSA key word being "Traveling"....with a T....not fooTball.

Looking at the the last 12 years of this government, Im not sure I want them consolidating anymore power.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Do you think Pres Obama will consolidate these organizations use them as his private blue shirt Army and have them start rounding us up right after the election or will they wait?

Or do you think Obama will come after our guns 1st.?

He left the rounding up of us to the state level last time.

I missed that. When did he get the state to round us up?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Don't worry. No one is gonna round you up. We must protest, get arrested and show the law to be unfair like we did in the brooklyn bridge arrest/entrapment case we won!

Risk is part of the battle. Put fear aside, and get yourself rounded up, we have great representation by NLG.

Peace!
