Teachers Union Slaps Michael Moore-on

Oh, Michael. You enjoy the trappings of life that only capitalism can provide, yet you claim to despise capitalism and even make a movie about it. But you don't use socialist union people to make this movie. Bad, bad, very bad, Michael.

You know who cares about that kind of stuff, though? Union members!

The porcine provocateur is promoting his anti-Wall Street jeremiad by giving free tickets to unions, but the American Federation of Teachers has turned them down because Moore didn't hire any members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

Liberal hypocrisy from the Moore-on. Who'd'a thunk?

Wow - those unions really stick together, don't they? I mean, the teacher's union and some actor's union?

There are some union protesters from a local builder's union that have been sitting outside of our DOE for the past year. They're protesting because the Superintendent hired a building company to do some (badly needed) work on the schools that had some non-union workers working for them. (It was also alleged that they had some undocumented workers as well, but I don't believe that was ever proven).

There are always two guys sitting on either end of a huge sign that says "Shame on (the superintendent's name)" - and they're out there no matter the weather, sitting in chairs under big umbrellas, usually asleep. What a waste.

I'm sure unions started out as a good idea, but something went wrong somewhere.

I haven't seen the capitalism movie but it reminds me of Milton Freidman.

People would get up in a huff and talk about the evils of the free market and he would calmly agree with them but then ask them to tell him what would be better.

Capitalism is not perfect but everything else is worse.

Moore's bad treatment of his employees has been an open secret for years. It's not much of a surprise that he'd hire non-union workers while continuing to pretend to be a pro-union guy. But this was at the NY Post so it probably doesn't count. Let know when the NY Times takes Moore to task for his hypocrisy.

Christ, Miller, I'm a bleeding heart liberal and Michael Moore embarrasses ME! Find a different name for him. He makes liberal a dirty word. Kinda like Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly for you guys.

The difference is that the three you mentioned love their country. Moore-on hates his, at least when Republicans run it. Remember his remark that the Iraqi insurgents were like the Minutemen, and they will win!??
