In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, all pigs are equal, but some pigs are more equal than others.
In the case of Michael Moore, some slobs are more equal than other slobs.
Moore’s most recent effort, Capitalism: A Love Story, took aim at businesses that used shelters to avoid paying taxes and took government bailouts during the market crash.
The thing is, Moore used similar tactics, taking advantage of a Michigan tax break to fund the making of his film–which raked in millions, by the way. Michigan taxpayers–already hit hard with the collapsing auto industry–were left holding the funny money bag for that one.
Maybe the taxpayers should pull together for the sequel, Socialism, a Fraud Story.
