Does this have to even be said? Moore's fictional movies that masquerade as documentaries in the world of mouth-breathers and morons have one common thread, a complete absence of any truth. Most marginally intelligent people know that, but at least 52% of the population of the United States does not.
I actually watched Sicko and debunked most of the movie before the final credits had finished running. It was that sophomoric. Of course, the leftist moonbats loved the movie, because they are stupid.
Anyhoo, Michael Moore took a huge step into MY particular realm of expertise when he suggested that Haiti suffered so much from the earthquake damage because it is a "Republicans' Paradise" with relatively few building codes or standards.
Please ignore the fact that Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere because of its SOCIALIST government (the political system that Michael Moore advocates), we are talking about philosophy. Well, as much as we can when responding to a mental midget like Michael Moore.
I am in the construction/architecture/development business and I am very serious about what I do. The fun part about this is that I do not even NEED building codes because of my ideology. Yes, I follow them, but they are utterly unnecessary for me, because my PRIMARY focus on anything that I design is that my stuff NEVER kills anyone.
Yes, that is my very FIRST task. I don't need the government to tell me how to accomplish that because of the way that I think. As a matter of FACT, building codes do the exact OPPOSITE of what they are intended to do. They REDUCE the quality of buildings for people that are normally very meticulous in all of their actions. Because of the existence of building codes, designers do ONLY what they have to do to meet code instead of designing a building that is exceedingly AWESOME!
For instance, instead of placing fire extinguishers in logical places that normal people would look, we have to make sure to space them seventy-five feet from any place in the building. Instead of gauging human reactions to an emergency and placing things where they make the most sense, we have to go on an arbitrary distance set by the government and that actually endangers people because THEY (the people faced with an emergency) do not know the building code. Those normal people simply react like normal people.
For anyone to give Michael Moore a forum to spout this asinine stupidity should be criminal. Of course, in a sane and just world, Keith Olbermann would not be allowed to screech his asinine stupidity, either. This is NOT censorship at all. Blatant lying that endangers individuals is NOT protected speech.
Of course, if that was the case, we would have to lock up the President of the United States, too. Like that is ever going to happen.
