He is absolutely right. The thing that kills me about Michael Moore is that he is in business with these same people he rails against at these rallys. His movies have worldwide distribution and that is only possible with being involved in huge corporations. He has cop to this, so this is no diatribe against the message because what he is saying is the truth. The people who control this country are not some shadowy group who only come out at night in black helicopters. They are bankers and Wall Street executives who have bought our democracy and politicians at every stage of the game.

Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you’ll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke. Not by a long shot. The country is awash in wealth and cash. It’s just that it’s not in your hands. It has been transferred, in the greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich.
Today just 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined.
Let me say that again. 400 obscenely rich people, most of whom benefited in some way from the multi-trillion dollar taxpayer “bailout” of 2008, now have more loot, stock and property than the assets of 155 million Americans combined. If you can’t bring yourself to call that a financial coup d’état, then you are simply not being honest about what you know in your heart to be true.
