Sicko - Michael Moore movie is incredible

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

"Sicko" is a Michael Moore movie/documentary about the state of Americas health care system compared to other nations. Whether you are Republican or Democrat please go and see this movie. Michael does not choose sides in this movie he simply tells it like it is. The movie is out June 29th in theaters. Sicko is endorsed by Oprah Winfrey and even FOX News.

This movie might make you cry, and will certainly make you pissed off at what the wealthiest, most powerful, greatest nation on the earth has not done about health care for it's people.

No one likes government run programs right? Everyone is afraid of a socialist state, all of the politicians scare us with words like socialism, communism, terrorism, and other ism words.

Well then why do we have public schools, police service, fire service, national park service, NASA, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Drug Administration, Department of Health & Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Interior, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of the Treasury, and Department of Veterans Affairs.

Give me a friggin break, whats one more government run program? If we are going to have all of those we may as well have a Department of National Health Care.

NY Times talks of the growing support for the film.

Here is the trailer for Sicko:



Speaking of first class health care here's a story about a Woman who dies in an Los Angeles Emergency Room lobby as 911 refuses to help and nurses ignore her.
