    this is going to be my new blogsite for regular rants of mine.

    This hopefully will supplement my webpages.

    please, if you comment stay on subject. I am interested in feedback, especially real thoughtful feedback. if you don't agree with what i believe that's fine too, but argue about why you believe differently, if that's appropriate.

    and of course, this is for fun interest and for something to think about, not to offend anyone's ideas or beliefs.

If you haven’t yet seen Michael Moore’s new movie, “Capitalism: A Love Story”, you should go see it. It is really a movie for the working class, but rich people can watch it too.

One note though, a lady mentions she is in the “Middle Class”. Many in today’s society have been told that the Middle Class is people who make a decent living, usually insinuating between $50,000-$100,000 a year. Good for them, that’s really beautiful for them. but the original meaning of Middle Class was “those who own a means of production”. This means a business, like a mill, which produces a product and residual income. of course, residual income is when the income comes in whether you work or not.

In England and America during the building of our country there were the Lower, working class, the Middle Class who owned the businesses, and the rich who were the Upper Class and did not have to work for a living or depend on residual income.

Michael Moore’s movie is, to me, an update of the “Vampire 2000” paper I read years ago. This link is very similar, “Operation Vampire Killer 2000” , but I think the paper I read was just the explanation part of this website.

There are people who believe that the rich deserve to be rich; that’s understandable, but lots of people do nothing and get rich.

What’s more important to me though I think is the secondary rights Moore talks about in Capitalism. Many poor people are having their homes taken away, of course their jobs, but also their dignity, their healthcare, retirement package, everything.

People should have the right to a basic standard of living like our grandparents had. I should have the ability to work a basic job and have no debt, a house, ability to provide for my children, basic health insurance, and not have to worry about retirement. Big business and insurance companies have reduced the standard of living of our grandparents as well, after they were supposed to have their retirement package’s in hand !

This is the link to FDR’s speech regarding the “2nd Bill of Rights” which Moore talks about in his movie. I don’t think Socialism is the answer, and I don’t think the rich should pay for the poor, but there is some responsibility somewhere for us to help the less fortunate than those rich people.
