Michael Moore

It is a cliche that you are either part of the problem or part of the solution, buit cliches exist because there is truth in them.

Now, I haven't seen the movie Sicko, mostly because I don't care what Michael Moore has to say about anything. I know the movie is about the health care system in this country. I saw a clip on youtube where Moore says that it is important that we "remove the profit incentive from health care" in the US. That was enough for me.

Anyway, a guy in the public eye as much as he is has the ability to make an impact. I think he should lead by example. So do my friends Jim Labadie and Ryan Lee. Check out: http://michaelmoorehealthchallenge.com/

I think Micheal's movies should be a 'profit free zone' as well.

I never knew propagandists could make so much money! (The guy's a millionaire for those who may not know)

I'm not exactly sure what the challenge part of the challenge is. It just says "we'd like to see him do more" than lose 30 pounds.

Do you have a clearer sense of what your colleagues are asking Mr. Moore to do? WHat would be the evidence of successful acceptance of the challenge? There are no terms as far as i could see.

Best,

I am a fan of Micheal Moore, and not because he is always right IMHO. He does make me think, I appreciate anyone who can give a fresh perspective.
