Michael Moore ✓ Here Comes Trouble kindle

I had an unusually large sized head though this was not uncommon for a baby in the Midwest The craniums in our part of the country were designed to leave a little extra room for the brain to grow in case one day we found ourselves exposed to something we didn't understand like a foreign language or a salad Michael Moore Oscar winning filmmaker bestselling author the nation's unofficial provocateur laureate is back this time taking on an entirely new role that of his own meta Forest Gump Breaking the autobiogr Michael Moore was wrong When Glenn Beck mused at length on TV about whether or not to murder him finally asking himself WWJD when Bill O’Reilly considered the topic as well and when Bill Kemmer posed this directly to Moore live on TV at the 2004 Democratic convention “I’ve heard people say they wish Michael Moore were dead” Michael should have understood they were just expressing their opinion Not setting off loons in TV ville The picture of Michael Moore as a toddler on the cover under the title of HERE COMES TROUBLE is perfect You should have learned better by now young man After a time he should have known what to say to Kurt Vonnegut when Vonnegut who befriended him wrote Moore was his “hero” and when John Lennon talked to him offering to help “You guys are passé That stuff is gone that part of my life is over The ideals of America the integrity of a person Forget it Believing if you are kind to someone they’ll be kind to you that you should be honest and willing to hear the other person That they should do the same That you should ask uestions especially the ones they don’t want you to ask see what’s happening around you and write it down read all of this should have ended when you closed your dorm door for the last time and walked out into the world”He and a friend who needed to move on and let bygones be bygones should not have demonstrated at Bitburg when Reagan visited the Nazi graves He should not have created a crisis line because of the horrors happening to his friends When a man came in with a shot gun one night threatening to blow his own head off when Michael Moore was alone there he should not have treated him like a hurt human being He shouldn’t have saved the guy’s life The guy like Moore was a coward Let him die if he wants to What would Beck have done if confronted with thatMichael Moore has caused trouble for himself all his life It was his parents’ fault They were on his side all the way Imagine How could he not know this To become a member of the school board when he was 18 all because he refused to take a vicious paddling is so sadly disrespectful Of course if he had listened to people all around him if he had let others define him when he received the Oscar for FAHRENHEIT 911 all those boos and curse words thrown at him by so much of Hollywood would not have happened No one would have keyed his Oscar Of course he never would have won that Oscar His film would not have been personally screened by the Bushes He never would have made a difference in this country by somehow in his soft voice with logic on his side won so many millions over to him He would not have had to hire ex Navy SEALS to protect him and they did such a danger he defending all those nefarious minorities and seeing the irony and hypocrisyBut if he had not caused trouble by holding fast to what we all say we believe this gentle compassionate decent man would not have been able to touch the human heart as widely as he does Read Michael Moore’s book read all of them and learn how humanity connects us all whether we like it or not It’s filled with history personal and of this country Somehow he is able to be honest with himself and to metaphorically put his arm around a person’s shoulder and say somehow we’ll work it outMy phone conversation with an ex friend“Don’t go see that movie”“Movie you mean GODZILLA” That’s what we were talking about with the bad special effects wasn’t it“No that movie by that guy you know”“You mean FAHRENHEIT 911”“Stay home and vote your conscience”I’d had enough of pretending of keeping uiet I had done that all my life So I took a huge breath and said“No I’m going to see that movie His name is Michael Moore Not only do I like his movies I like his books and TV programs and him”The friendship a good one though we tried hard to save it ended when I stopped agreeing with everything said After that conversation I cried Like Michael Moore like my friend like me like everybody in this country we love America If only we could see we disagree for the exact same reasons Oddly enough I said that to my friend one night and we agreed I think that is exactly what Moore is sayingMichael Moore is the man who believes what they taught us in third grade After all if you’ve got to be wrong this is a pretty good way to do it And btw he has an infectious laugh that makes you feel good too This is also a very funny book He is such a graceful writer Kurt Vonnegut said to him “ít has become impossible to write fiction and make it believable” As Moore said at the Oscars we live in fictitious times The stories in this book are real and very personal to him He tells you about a gay kid in school and what happened or a Jewish man in pain of history or a girl he knew who died of a botched abortion and he has to at least touch our collective souls I think we still have onePeace

doc º Here Comes Trouble ✓ Michael Moore

Here Comes TroubleAphical mode he presents twenty four far ranging irreverent and stranger than fiction vignettes from his own early life One moment he's an eleven year old boy lost in the Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in the next he's inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan Fast forwarding to 2003 he stuns the world by uttering the words We live in fictitious times with a fictitious president in place of the expected I'd like to thank the Academy And none of that even comes close to the ni I purchased this book after reading an excerpt published in The Guardian I was shocked to discover how much Moore's life has been affected by his activism work or to put it bluntly just how many people are eager to stop him from using his voice to raise awareness about rising ineuality and the devastating effects that is having on American societyThis is also a fascinating and fun to read biography If you think that Michael Moore the activist was born when he decided to make his groundbreaking film Roger and Me think again That's where this book wraps up after describing the uestioning mind and the passion for justice that often got him into trouble earlier on in life and fast forwarding to the recent past when he was forced to hire Navy Seals to protect himI'm going to share my favorite uotations from the book in the uotations area here at GoodReads so they can be discovered by people but I'll leave you with these two from the final chapter Gratitude in the meantime On the rise of economic ineuality in America Few foresaw how the taking of just one itsy bitsy little thread and pulling it out of the middle class fabric would soon unravel the entire tapestry leaving everyone struggling in a dog eat dog existence a weekly battle to keep one's head above water On one level it was pure political genius because the electorate so consumed with its own personal survival would never be able to find the time or energy to politically organize the workplace the neighborhood or the town to revolt against the mad scientists and politicians who had engineered their demiseOn the making of Roger and Me It would have a point of view but not the point of rigid unfunny Left I felt no need to fake the sort of objectivity that other journalists deceitfully hid behind And I could sit there in our cramped edit room and see an imaginary audience in a big dark theater howling cheering hissing and leaving the movie house ready to rumble
