I've been waiting for this movie since last year! Can't wait to see it. It comes out June 29th. Reserve your seats people.

The healthcare system in this here Canadian province can be hellish at times, and the government is letting it fall into a shambles, but I can hardly even imagine the barbarism people suffer under in the USA.

My roommate saw a girl once with one of her ears mutilated. Her earring had been torn out, she explained, and she was living in the States at the time, so there was no way for her to get it fixed at the time of the injury. The only other place I can imagine seeing people walking around with mangled messes of untreated scarring, are third-world countries.

uh, micheal moore voted for ralph nader in 2000.

he had a chance to vote for gore. he told us gore was the same thing as bush during that election.

ps what ever happened to moore's 2004 guy wesley clark?

Funny, today I was on the phone with my insurance 'provider', after recieving a bill from the hospital.

I had an accident injury a month ago that I thought was covered by my insurance. Turns out they cancelled that part of my policy 4 years ago, so I have to pay the total bill myself. Less benefits while raising my rate every year, too.

I've paid this company thousnads and thousands of dollars over the years. Never had a claim untill now & they wont pay anything on the bill.

Have looked at other companies, they are all the same-and you have to sit with a salesman who pitches a bunch of bs.

Health insurance is a scam. I cant wait to see this movie.

I agree, health insurance is a total scam -- hell, the very idea of health care as a for-profit industry is completely barbaric...

Health care isn't welfare; it isn't a hand-out. It's just basic fucking compassion. No one gets sick or injured intentionally -- you know, hoping to leech off of the taxpayers' monies... No one wants to be in a hospital.

A society can be measured by how they treat the smallest, weakest, and poorest amongst them. For all of this country's good sides, I fear we don't rate too good in this category...

Painful experiences and interesting thoughts you share. Moore's movie seems to unvail something we all knew.

The funny thing is that we, in Europe, still have a decent social security system, but it's going away at fast pace. For example, France has just elected a president who doesn't hide his projects to destroy existing public services completely (diminish public workets by two in four years but doubling his own security services), to privatise and make all people "responsible" for their own medical care. We know now what that means.

So true my man, so true. Dzwonka, if you don't mind, I'd like to use this sentence sometime.

Thank you Norm - for this interview and the interview with Gore, and all of the thought-provoking links, and everything. This is such an amazing resource - I really appreciate it!

Omar, of course, you're welcome. I have no idea where I got that from though -- I mean, looking at it now, it seems like a classic quotable... Seems too snazzy to have just come off the top off my head, heheheh.

I have heard a few variations on that phrase. It is so true and I think very important regarding the measure of a country.

i quote from a comment above: "…France has just elected a president who doesn't hide his projects to destroy existing public services completely". Everybody has their opinion, and mine is that this is total crap. i am French, have lived ten years in the US where i think the Health system is a disgrace. But to suppose there is no space possible in France between US-style market forces and our bloated public service freewheeling on everyone's taxes is irrational. The writer may dislike Sarkhozy, fine, but as he/she wrote, "France has just elected a president…". Yep, it's called democracy. So, do you really think 53% of French people voted for the complete destruction of their public services? Ludicrous.

jean-paul, you've lived in the US for 10 years and yet you doubt that people will vote against their self-interests? People are sheep.

Whew! Thankfully Michael Moore will be engaging in yet another tireless quest to use popular opinion and really unfunny 'comedy' to make himself a few more million dollars. The system works!

If Michael Moore was born 40 years earlier in Germany, He probably would've been in Gerbbels place as Propagandy Minister. He is such a jerk and twists the truth to suit him. Yes our country has problems, but it is still the greatest nation on this planet. Mr . Moore, this is America, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT. you made enough money from your propaganda that you can take your fat ass to any communist country and live like a king, GO.

I'm sorry, is this YOUR America? Somehow I missed the civics lesson on where America's laws and practicies are immutable. Speaking of Propaganda, did you seem to forget the Freedom of Expression principle this country was founded on? Moore has the freedom to call our government, corporations, and laws out on their inadequacies, whereas you have the same right to refute Moore (yet you'll be much more convincing without the ad hominem).

You sir are the one who desires to live in a fascist country apparently. Since when are either fascism or communism accomidating to democratic principles? I thought the Cold War was over. Are we really still deathly afraid of Communism? More and more it seems that rampant capitalism results in the same mess, the powerful and rich controlling everything.

Isn't it obvious that we need parts of both to have a society where everyone has a better chance of having success and happiness?

Oh and just to make this complete, and to remind us all of the wonders of the internet... jerk ass. :)
