Mary Katherine Ham took Michael Moore’s idiot idea of confiscating wealth and using it as a “national resource” and basically showed how much of an idiot he is

The grand total of the combined net worth of every single one of America’s billionaires is roughly $1.3 trillion. It does indeed sound like a “ton of cash” until one considers that the 2011 deficit alone is $1.6 trillion.

Michael Moore on why people own guns

Here comes Michael Moore again.  The last time we saw him, he was telling us how great health care is in Cuba.  Now he is explaining to us that the reason people own guns is because they are scared of a poor person or a black person breaking into their houses.  I always love it when people use verbal slight-of-hand to denigrate a group of people.  And in this case he managed to not only throw in some class warfare (don’t let them poor people steal my stuff!), he also managed to label gun owners as bigots.  Gotta love him!
