Michael Moore tells it like it is!

I was listening to an interview with Michael Moore today on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio Network (CBC Radio-1) and he made a statement that I hadn't really thought about before, but once I heard it, I fully agreed with him!

(He was talking about his new movie "Sicko" which had it's North American Premier here in London last Friday.)

During the filming of the movie, he took a man whose fingers had been accidentally cut off down to Cuba, and the medical system there re-attached his fingers for him ..... where it would have cost him tens of thousands of dollars to have it done in the U.S. without private insurance.

Universal Health Care and the responsibility of the Government is what the movie explores!

But, aside from the problems with health care in the States, (among other things)he made this comment; "It's so nice to be in a country where you are free, rather than having to look over your shoulder all the time like back home in the States."

When asked what he meant, Mr. Moore stated; "Here in Canada you are free to do what you want. There are no rules to tell you where you can, and can't go, or what you can, and can't do, like in the States.

That's what true freedom is all about!"
He said.

He was of course referring to the U.S. law that forbids travel and commerce with Cuba. This has lead to him being investigated by at least a couple of branches of the Government and there are indications that he might face a raft of criminal charges.

Michael was even afraid that they (The Government) would confiscate his film before it was released, since part of it was filmed in Cuba and this could be construed as doing "commerce" with the "enemy!" (If they wanted to censor him this would be the quickest and easiest way to do it!)

The more I think about what the U. S. Government does abroad, and even to its own citizens, I have come to the realization that I do indeed live in a FREE country here in Canada!
