NEWS!!!: Michael Moores new film 'Sicko' Leaked via P2P

Post by hyipo » Tue Jun 12, 2007 5:29 am

It seems like now while the government may try to confiscate his film now even before it's release it is shared on Bittorrent filesharing network and is confirmed it is the real copy of his documentary and not a fake.
This happened right when the government was doing a investigation against Michael Moore for his trip to Cuba which the government claims he wasn't authorized to goto Cuba. So now the government wants to confiscate his film for the investigation so he stashed a copy in Canada for safekeeping but what if he also stashed it in the P2P filesharing networks, and made it so many downloaders grab a copy of his film so the government can't attempt to confiscate every filesharers copy of Michael Moores new film.
"A film that I'm not sure is even released is being shared on P2P filesharing networks" Brian says. Well the confiscation attempt is looking like a political attack against a documentary guy just because medical companies could be lobbying the government millions of dollars to make money from the hurt and sick.
"Freedom of speech should be supported and Michael Moore should not have his film confiscated because He wants to bring out the truth about the U.S Healthcare system" says Brian.
Two files on torrentz are the real live documentary of Sicko and is just being shared on there. Hopefully maybe everyone can download a copy of sicko so we all know about the truth and the Americans can do something about it like contact their Senators and tell them to reform the Healthcare system.

Like they really give a crap about that manipulative schmuck :rolleyes: :tard:

Seriously, you need to lay off the Kool Aid just a bit if you honestly think the government is going to confiscate the movie before its release.

If you don't mind people that will skew the facts to suit whatever point they're trying to make, I guess you're right. If you ask me, he's just as dishonest as the people he's trying to speak out against.

I don't know.. I've seen most of his movies starting with "Roger and Me" and I'd love to see a well articulated argument (with sources) against his movies. The guy may be a bit crude and he surely begs for a fight with the way he makes his movies, but I've yet to see where he has outright lied or purposefully was misleading. That's more than you can say for just about any elected official in the entire country.

Here's a start for you:

BTW, I never claimed that current politicians are any better. I just think that lying to make an argument shows that you have a very weak argument.

I have to admit that I have not seen the Bowling movie yet (it's still awaiting in my torrent directory), but the link you gave will make it all the more interesting - if not like a homework project.

The little thing in there about the KKK and NRA is interesting. When you think about it, of all the KKK members who are registered to vote.. how many would you say voted for W in the last two presidential elections? How many would you say are registered republican/conservative vs. democrat/liberal?

No idea, but correlation != causation either ;)

So far I haven't really seen any claims of doctoring things except from (surprise) the right wing. The exception seems to be the apolitical atheist Hitchens - who's latest book is outstanding. When 95% of his critics are republican, that tells me he's probably on the right track (no pun intended).

On another note, I have seen more than a couple prominant conservatives sing high praise to his latest movie Sicko. This is probably because the target taking the most amount of fire in the movie is Hillary Clinton. While the lambasting of Hillary is more or less justified, it makes me wonder if the conservative fans of the movie agree with the general messege of the film or want to promote negative press against the democratic front runner.

That would seem the most logical to me given who he's targeting. Lest we forget, he was sitting next to Theresa Kerry at the Democratic Convention in 2004. Why would the Democrats attack him? He's been their posterboy! Besides, you're essentially saying that somebody's political leanings automatically invalidates what they're saying, even if it's the truth. Quite frankly, that says more about you than them ;)

It's no secret and I've never attempted to hide my absolute contempt for the right wing. Someone's "political leanings" tells you a lot. I'm sure that my own turn off quite a few people and I have no problem with that.

I saw the film and it's the least politically biased movie he's made since Roger and Me. He takes a few jabs at politicians in both parties, but mostly his target is set at the profit-motivated health care industrial complex. That movie savagely owns the living daylights out of American health care, particularly HMOs, and the hypocritical, distorted view of socialized essential services.

Michael Moore, who IMHO is a physically repulsive amorphous blob who's narrative tone I find immeasurably insufferable, made me cringe because despite his film full of typically annoying Michael Moore-isms, it was so...right. Socialized health care, it's evil! It's communist! It's.....the only essential service to a community NOT socialized by the US government. Police, Fireman, the military - all government employees paid for by tax dollars. Would you like to privatize your local police? Have your local shopping mall security guard who works half asleep protect your neighborhood? Have your 911 calls outsourced to Indian call centers on behalf of an HMO?

When you bring a bunch of 9-11 emergency workers hailed 6 years ago as heroes who can’t get any insurance to cover their illness to the docks of Guantanamo Bay to request the same health care that the Al Qaeda evil-doers across the fence receive – you know there is a problem.

Now I know why Canada, the UK, and France laugh at the US healthcare system. While their own health care systems are far from perfect, it's pathetic that the greatest country in the world has the worst health care among prosperous western countries. You have to laugh at the right-wing fear mongering barfed day in and out about socialized medicine all the while every other critical community service in the USA is in fact socialized. US taxpayers fork out half a trillion dollars to support a military industrial complex who’s bureaucracy rivals any health care industry’s (and still can’t find one lone jihadist piglet hiding in a cave somewhere in PakiSatan).

Yeah, that evil socialist medicine. I'm sure that UK doctor in the film who has a 1.2M house and gets paid close to 330K a year (160K GBP) ponders each day how much better off he would be if he practiced in the United States instead of the communist regime of NHS.
