By Michael Moore. New York: Crown, 1996.
Let’s All Hop in a Ryder Truck
It is well worth looking into the truth about the Oklahoma City bombing, and the evidence for the FBI’s involvement therein.
Would Pat Buchanan Take a Cheque From Satan?
Watch “The Secret Right Volume 1” for information on an organization Pat Buchanan is a part of, the Counsel for National Policy.
“Don’t Vote-It Only Encourages Them”
The kind of politicians we have to vote for is ultimately determined by the spiritual condition of the people who make up the nation.
Democrat? Republican? Can You Tell the Difference?
This is the only truly good chapter in the book.
Not on the Mayflower? Then Leave!
First of all, most immigrants in the past have come to the United States (and Canada) legally.
Also, up through the Ellis Island era, immigrants were coming to supply workers the country didn’t have. The immigrants before them were actually settlers, people who had come to literally build the young country.
Nowadays, we have immigrants (certainly not all of them, but a lot) who come to North America to take advantage of social programs.
They also undercut the job market. Americans would do the jobs leftists claim they don’t want to do, but for proper wages and fair working hours.
Hey, Michael Moore, how about encouraging the Hollywood types you hang out with to hire people from the poorer areas of America to come work as the maids and gardeners to said rich Hollywood leftists?
Incidentally, it’s interesting he mentions Martina Navratilova, who, 23 years later, is now regarded by the left as an enemy for her stance on transgender athletes.
In fact, since it will increase the hit count, I will now list all the immigrants in the list at the end of this chapter who have died since the publication of “Downsize This!”
Most of these people probably immigrated to the U.S. legally, including coming over on visas and later taking out citizenship. Hardly the same thing as a hoard of Central Americans barging across the border.
The following people from the list are dead:
I. M. Pei;
General John Shalikashvili;
It is also worth noting that, while not an immigrant, Ross Perot died while I was reading this book.
Big Welfare Mamas
I actually quite agree the issue of corporate welfare is a big problem. However, someone has to provide some objectivity to this thing.
Daniel M. Tellep: Did Lockheed pay back the $250 million federal emergency loan?
Firings often occur when mergers take place because two companies that were formerly each doing the same thing have now become one company, thus you now have redundancy.
What about the other $27 million of the federal government payment?
One could argue a lot of the “welfare payments” listed amounted to smart political moves as Lockheed Martin does so much business with the U.S. Department of Defense.
Dwayne O. Andreas: Dwayne O. Andreas has died since this book was written.
Helmut Werner: It could be argued Alabama’s incentives to Mercedes-Benz were necessary because of the economic benefits of the factory being built there. Probably the reason Alabama was facing across-the-board budget cuts was because they’ve been screwed over by the federal government, which has been happening ever since Reconstruction.
Incidentally, Helmut Werner has died since this book was written.
Edward A. Brennan: Personally, I think Sears would have been better to move out of Illinois.
Since the writing of this book, Edward A. Brennan has died.
Art Modell: Read “The Fix is In” by Brian Tuohy to find out how little owners care about the cities their teams are currently located, as well as a whole lot more interesting stuff.
Like all but one of the other welfare mamas profiled in this chapter, Art Modell died after this book was written.
Let’s Dump on Orange County
I wonder how many members of a certain tribe were responsible for Orange County going bankrupt?
How to Conduct the Rodney King Commemorative Riot
Moore’s characterization of white men-the same kinds of people he says he cares about and is trying to help is exactly the kind of attitude that got Trump elected in the first place.
Incidentally, since “Downsize This!” was written, Rodney King has gone on to whatever he has gone on to.
Hey, Michael, along with encouraging Hollywood stars and executives to adopt poor, white Americans as workers for good wages and fair hours, how about helping to establish colleges in the poor parts of the country to retrain unemployed Americans to do the jobs the immigrants are currently doing.
Germany Still Hasn’t Paid for Its Sins-And I Intend to Collect
This fat hypocrite admits this kind of thinking after World War I was what led up to the Second, but he wants to go ahead with it anyway. After all, all money has to come from somewhere.
So You Want to Kill the President!
I’m sure there are plenty of grounds for jailing you and your fellow lefties for things you’ve said about conservatives.
Show Trials I’d Like to See
“The People versus Saturday Night Live”: Has “Saturday Night Live” ever actually been truly good, even in the era of the Not Ready For Prime Time Players?
“The People versus Senator Strom Thurmond”: I’d like to see “The People versus All The Propagandists Who Said Homosexuality Was Fine And Just An Alternative Lifestyle.” The defendants would be people like Michael Moore and his cronies, as well as the heads of the leading lgbt organizations (who, by the way, I’m told, are all members of a certain tribe), as well as several past and present politicians from governments all over the world. The plaintiffs would be loved ones of homosexuals who have committed suicide, died of alcoholism and drug addiction, been murdered by abusive partners, or who’ve died of AIDS and other such diseases, and of homosexuals who have or are currently experiencing these consequences of being told this by the defendants and thus acting on their attractions to other men or women.
Depending on how pathetic the defendants sounded, they may or may not get to finish speaking up for themselves before they were literally stoned to death in public by the plaintifs.
Incidentally, since “Downsize This!” was published, Strom Thurmond has gone for his dirt nap.
If Clinton Had Balls
Since everyone is thinking it anyway, I’m going to make the obvious joke: Ever since the release of the Starr report, we know he does.
Honestly, when a guy is as rotted out with scandal as “Slick Willie” and is even alleged to have raped women and to have fathered a son by a black prostitute he refuses to acknowledge, could we not just treat this guy like those homosexual propagandists I mentioned above? (Read Chris Anderson’s “Bill and Hillary: the marriage” for more on this topic.
Steve Forbes Was an Alien
There are Aliens Among Us. Order the series from Scriptures For America if you don’t believe me.
Corporate Crooks Trading Cards
William S. Stavropoulos: If a certain tribe, through their media, didn’t tell women they had to look a certain way in order to conform to the standard of beauty that tribe put forth to them, than far fewer women would have been harmed by silicone breast implants.
David H. Hoag: Cleveland probably felt obligated to help LTV in 1986 because they were such a large employer. It could be argued that by 1993, market and/or other conditions had changed making it necessary for LTV to do what it did then. A corporation doesn’t technically owe any abstract thing, such as gratitude, to anyone.
David H. Hoag is another person who has begun pushing up daisies since this book was written.
Phil Knight: It could be argued that outsourcing work to the factory contracted to make shoes for Nike has helped boost the living standards of those in developing countries.
It could also be argued that the costly endorsements of people like Michael Jordan are necisary for Nike to be Nike-though I bet they wish Colin Kaepernick wasn’t involved in their advertising anymore.
Ralph S. Larsen: This man also got dead since 1996.
Why are Union Leaders So F***ing Stupid?
I would like to take this opportunity to complain about some public unions.
In the spring of 1997, the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) went on strike, thus meaning students of the W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind couldn’t attend till it was over.
In 2002, OPSEU went on strike again.
In the fall of 1997, the public school teachers in Ontario went on strike and the teachers in the Separate school board (which included WRMS as well as the schools for the deaf in Ontario) threatened to go on strike, it being averted at the last minute.
In the spring of 1999, the Separate schoolteachers threatened to strike again, taking work to rule action. The strike was averted just before the beginning of the 1999/2000 school year.
During the 2012/2013 school year, the public school teachers staged walk-outs and worked to rule.
In the winter of 2004, Ontario’s college teachers threatened to go on strike, it being averted.
In 2006, the college teachers did go on strike and did the same thing just a couple years ago.
Parents do not send their kids to school, and students do not pay good money to attend college or university, so you unions can threaten to walk off the job and pull various other shananigans all the time.
Balance the Budget? Balance My Checkbook!
Read Deuteronomy 28 for greater insight into why are nation is having the problems it is.
Mike’s Penal Systems, Inc.
It would appear the U.S. is now doing away with private prisons.
Mandate? What Mandate?
Too bad Michael Moore’s reaction to the Republicans taking the house in 1994 wasn’t fatal.
“Our country was going to be dismantled by these wide-eyed zealots.”
And you aren’t a zealot?
“So you could say that just one person brought on the entire mean-spirited Engler revolution in Michigan.”
Takes one to know one.
We had 78 percent voter turn-out in the last Canadian federal election and look who we got in office as a result.
My Forbidden Love for Hillary
Telling women they should like Hillary Clinton because they should be in favour of what she is in favour sounds pretty sexist to me.
A Sperm’s Right to Life
Now we come to another one of Moore’s frequent specious arguments.
Neither a sperm nor an egg by themselves can make a human being. Only when the sperm and egg have joined and adhered to the wall of the uterus can this happen. From that point on, what we have, whether in the embryonic or fetal stage, is a human being in its developmental stages.
Capital punishment for all women who have abortions. Then jerkwads like Moore would accuse us Christians of being hypocritical and not showing mercy.
Rather than execute mothers who’ve had abortions, I personally think we should execute propagandists like Michael Moore and those at the head of the abortion movement who deceive women into thinking having an abortion is not all that much more of an invasive or difficult procedure than having a wart removed. Afterwords, when the women are bleeding copiously or having nightmares or on antidepressants or can’t go to their dentist because the drill reminds them of the vacuum used to abort the baby, they then know the truth.
I would definitely support executing those people, as well as those who perform abortions knowing all the potential side effects it has.
Actually, abortion is an antiwoman practice that seeks to control women and keep them in their place. Watch “The Feminist Case Against Abortion” for more on this.
Let’s Pick a New Enemy!
“Canadian Bacon” is an awesome movie, so Michael Moore has at least done one good thing in his life.
Since this book was written, the U.S. has invaded Libya (under the presidency of a black democrat and with Hillary Clinton as secretary of state) and Muammar Khaddafi has been murdered as a result.
The U.s. and Canada may be headed toward some kind of hot or cold conflict with China, what with all this trade war and other business-related stuff.
The Zionist crypto-Jew Donald Trump may take the States to war against Iran.
Iraq. “Done that.” Well, 1996 Michael Moore, you guys did it again, twice if you count the fight against ISIS as a separate conflict, the latter of which finally got Canada to send some troops over there which you Americans had been wanting us to do since 2002.
North Korea: Depends what minute it is.
Since the putting forth of this book, Kim Il Sung’s son was chosen as leader, died (possibly as a result of being murdered) and was replaced by Kim’s grandson.
Switzerland: Nah, too many guns. There’s a reason why they’ve always remained neutral.
Burkina Faso: You never know. Seems like there’s a new war or a rumour of one every day in the second decade of the twenty-first century.
Those Keystone Cubans
Read “I Will Die Free” by Noble Alexander to learn just what a truly horrible person Fidel Castro was.
Since Moore spewed out this publication, Fidel Castro has been given the divine death penalty.
What America Needs is a Makeover
“Ever since I can remember, the United States has not been a very popular country. Take a poll, from Zimbabwe to Uruguay, and for some unexplained reason you’ll find that other people just hate our guts.”
Which I guess is why so many people from other countries are currently streaming across the U.S.’s southern border, eh Mike? Or it could just be the social programs.
O.J. is Innocent
No, he wasn’t and I’m glad he finally went to prison.
The “Liddy Problem”
Read “The New Babylon” by Michael Collins Piper.
I Try to Commit Bob Dornan
Rock and roll songs (at least a lot of the most popular ones) do have satanic messages in them. Visit Good Fight Ministries to find out more.
Since this book was published, Gerald Solomon and Helen Chenowith have both died.
Skip the Candidates-Vote for the Lobbyists!
I think Willis Carto of Liberty Lobby should have been president.
Harassing Gays for Extra Credit
I seriously think Westboro Baptist Church is actually a front for the LGBT movement and was planted to make those who are against homosexuality look bad.
It would be cool if high school students could get extra credit, community service hours or co-op placements working at a repairative therapy clinic; a place that lovingly reaches out to the lgbt community and helps deliver them from the terrible deathstyle of homosexuality.
Since the publication of this book, Fred Felps has gone on to be with someone.
Take That Pen Out of Bob Dole’s Hand
Watch Jeff Censored on YouTube.
Free Us, Nelson Mandela!
Look up “Nelson Mandela necklacing” and “Nelson Mandela terrorist activity.”
NAFTA’s Great! Let’s Move Washington to Tijuana!
Donald Trump is bringing jobs back to the United States and Michael Moore still hates him.
