Michael Moore, apparently, has instincts that are not very different from those of Joseph Stalin. He has a solution to the problem with the credit downgrade of the US government by the S & P: “Obama, show some guts, arrest S&P head.” It’s simple: “There’s S&P, there’s a problem; there isn’t S&P, there isn’t a problem.” America’s downgrade is an issue of who the decisive factor is. If the decisive factor is the S&P head, arrest him, and Obama will be the decisive factor. What other solution can there be?
Of course, Moore doesn’t say much more but we can imagine what follows next: A simple arrest won’t suffice. A public trial, forced confession, and then the S&P head against the wall, and . . . boom! For the edification of the others, as Lenin liked to say. Until the final victory of communism.
I’m glad that years ago Moore didn’t advise Bush to “show some guts” and arrest a fat rich lying pig who made false documentaries about America, capitalism, and the health care system of Cuba. We wouldn’t have the cheap entertainment Moore is offering us today.
