Will History Repeat Itself?

Cheeky cheeseburger eating (and darling of the left) Michale Moore, says capitalism is evil. Since the current Congress and administration are spending the majority of their time attacking and demonizing our free enterprise system, while nationalizing large segments of the economy, I would have to conclude they are in agreement with their chubby soulmate.

But history would teach us much differently:

"Barack Obama [and Congress] is committing the same mistakes made by policymakers during the Great Depression, according to a new study endorsed by Nobel laureate James Buchanan."

I think I'd be listening more to respected economist Buchanan than I would lefty filmmaker wacko Moore.

Story here.

How bitterly ironic that the report gets attention from a UK media outlet.

As for Moore, that more have not commented on his patent hypocrisy (this multi-millionaire who became such ONLY by virture of our wonderful capitalist system, not despite it) is a testament to how willfully ignorant most leftists are, as well as how clear their ideals are do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do.

JL - You're right. Moore's fat face, evidence of his own over-indulgence, is a testament to his hypocritical condemnation of Americans who ostensibly consume too much of the world's resources. What a buffoon; similar to Al Gore lecturing us all on our "carbon footprints" while he burns energy at his TN mansion like there's no tomorrow.

Such is the attitude of elites.
