Pompous Bloated Rich Guy Complaining About Other Rich Guys Having Money

by lewwaters

Leave up to Michael Moore, who has amassed more wealth that the vast majority of citizens could ever imagine, to sit down and complain about other wealthy people having money.

“They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it,” Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.

“I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to — we need to see these jobs as something we some, that we collectively own as Americans and you can’t just steal our jobs and take them someplace else,” Moore concluded.

I have to say that I am not only shocked, but very disappointed in the Supreme Court Decision granting the Westboro assholes the ‘right’ to protest funerals of our fallen heroes and disrespect families and loved ones in their moment of grief.

By a decision of 8 to 1 the Supreme Court rules First Amendment protects church’s right to picket funerals, granting those inbred slime from Topeka, Kansas the ‘right’ to disrupt the funerals of fallen Military heroes, trampling over loved ones right to a moment of personal grief and sorrow.

I couldn’t disagree more with the Supreme Court over this. Such decisions may be legal, but that doesn’t mean they are just.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, concerning the Westboro inbreds’ actions, “is certainly hurtful and its contribution to public discourse may be negligible. But government cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker.”

Really? But I can be brought up on hate speech allegations for uttering the word “faggot” to a gay or worse yet, using the inciteful ‘N-word’ towards a Black person? But the scum from Kansas can disrupt funerals with signs and chants of “God hates fags” and that is protected?
