Flint, MI – (SatireWorld.com)
Despite being a $50 million dollar man, director Michael Moore believes he can still be part of the 99% that are protesting rich people at the Occupy Wall Street protest in NYC. The lard-assed director and activist recently took to his blog to share his feelings about the movement that he’s been supportive of since its inception in September.
In his writing, Moore recalls how he too was once unemployed in Flint, Michigan when the cesspool pumping company he worked for accused him of taking his work home. It was then that he created guidelines for himself and how he would handle his wealth. In the guidelines, Moore agreed with himself to pay his taxes, buy fattening food, give to charity, buy lotsa desserts, and avoid stock ownership and instead to rely on other peoples efforts to generate his own money.
Moore went on to explain himself in his blog. “How can you claim to be for the poor when you are the opposite of poor?’ It’s like asking: ‘You’ve never had sex with another man — how can you be for gay marriage? Actually, I’m for both myself.” He also drew comparisons to an all-male Congress giving women the right to vote, as well as white people who marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The blog came after Moore’s appearance on Piers Morgan, where Morgan attempted to “discredit” Moore’s motives based on his apparent wealth. At that time, Moore denied he was rich but later revelations showed he was worth almost $50 million and profited from Haliburton stock deals.
“I am devoting my life to those who have less and who have been crapped upon by the system,” Moore said on the show. “And that’s how I spend my time, my energy, my money on trying to up-end this system that I think is a system of violence, it’s a system that’s unfair to the average working person of this country, of course, I’m not average and I deserve that $50 million for directing silly films made on the backs of those who work for me for peanuts.”
Moore declined to talk about his daily calorie intake that exceeds the combined daily total for the entire nation of Somalia.
