911 FAHRENHEIT IS REALLY, REALLY HOT

It was painful, brutal, shocking, and at times funny. Fahrenheit 9/11, by using a cleverly woven collection of news footage, scorches away George W. Bush's thin veneer of legitimacy and exposes his presidency for the complete failure it has become. While the movie is well worth watching, one serious drawback is that it was written and directed by such a detestable character like Michael Moore. It was really painful forking over the eight bucks knowing Moore would get a piece of it.

That being said, it is hard to see how anyone who voted for Bush could view this movie and not kick themselves in the rear while screaming, "What was I thinking when I voted for a man who cannot even string two intelligent sentences together?" Of course, it is hard to understand how Bush's miserable three and a half year record of; illegal wars, exploding budgets, huge government expansions, attacks on our freedom and the death of millions of American unborn children, would not elicit the same screams from every thinking American.

It seems we Americans are quite content chewing on the blue pill.

I staggered out of the (packed) theatre after seeing Fahrenheit 9/11, feeling like I had just been through a 10 round fight. I am not sure which emotion was stronger, the anger or the disgust. Anger, that we have been so thoroughly manipulated by George Bush, and the warmongering CRAP (Cheney, Rumsfeld And Powell) he hired to carry his water. Or disgust, that we willingly allowed a pack of bloodthirsty madmen to so easily and completely take over our country.

Do we need any more lessons as to why we should NEVER vote for the lesser of two evils - EVER AGAIN- no matter what?

You can find just about any flavor of Fahrenheit 9/11 movie review you would like. There are those who call it a pack of lies and there are those who declare it to be an heroic piece of journalism. Take your pick. But it is hard to understand what all the fuss is about. It is obvious that Moore intended the movie to be a slanted, one-sided view of the "war on terror." In other words, let the viewer discern. Taken from that perspective, the movie makes some very good points.

One of the questions asked was, "Did Bush have clear, advanced warning of planned terror attacks inside the U.S. using civilian airplanes?" It would seem that at a minimum, he certainly should have, because the evidence was out there. But for some inexplicable reason, the best minds in the business "missed" all the clues. Why Bush did not fire every head of his "intelligence" services after 9/11 will remain one of the great mysteries of his wretched four-year presidency.

It was particularly noteworthy that Moore called to task Senator Tom Daschel, John Kerry and the rest of the Democratic hypocrites who voted for the Iraqi invasion in October of 2002. The time for them to voice their opposition was before the war started, not after everyone has figured out it is a loser.

One other important question Moore asked was, "How could 15 of the 19 hijackers have been from Saudi, yet we invaded Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11?" That is a great question, one that Bush has avoided answering since his invasion of Iraq.

An over-riding theme of Fahrenheit 9/11 is that the "war on terror" has nothing to do with fighting terror. On this point, Moore was dead on. The rainbow colored terror alerts were exposed for the joke that they are. And the patriot act was exposed as a freedom choking fraud. A frightened people will do just about anything to secure their safety, and the Bush folks have played the fear card very, very well.

Moore was getting close on the proper way to fight the "war on terror," when he called for pulling every one of the 300,000 plus American soldiers out of whichever strange country we have left them to rot in, and bringing them back home to seal up our borders. But he failed to mention that we should restore our second amendment rights aboard airplanes, so knife wielding lunatics can never crash them into buildings again. Or that we should kick out all the non-citizens who have no right to be here and that we should quit letting so many of them come here in the first place.

But as we know, none of those things are even being considered, because the "war on terror" is not about fighting terror. It is about controlling the American people by keeping us in a constant state of fear.

Fahrenheit 9/11 correctly points out that we need to get over the, "they hate us because we are free" delusion. Because first of all, we are not free. Second, "they" couldn't care less whether we are free. They hate us because we keep poking around in their business and occupying their lands! The Middle Eastern hornets nest we have managed to set loose would largely go away if we would just treat people the same way we would like to be treated.

One of the most compelling scenes of Fahrenheit 9/11 was the interview with a proud, patriotic woman whose son was fighting in the Iraqi war. That same woman was interviewed again later, after she learned her son was killed in battle. That interview by itself is worth going to see the movie. Her story was made all the more tragic when compared to the number Congressmen who have sons stationed in Iraq - which is exactly one, according to Moore. That so few congressmen are willing to risk their own flesh and blood defending a failed Middle Eastern policy, should tell us volumes about their commitment to this war.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is unlikely to end up among the great classics. But Moore did us a service by burning off some of the fog that has shrouded the Bush administration from the scrutiny it deserves. If in even a small way, the movie helps to take down this failed regime, that would be a good thing. It is a shame the major media has largely abdicated their responsibility to investigate the allegations in Fahrenheit 9/11, which leaves us stuck with an oversized slab of human debris to put this puzzle together.

Unless people begin to wake up, the only real consequence of this movie will be that the Democrats will harden their support for Kerry while the Republicans will redouble their efforts to re-elect Bush. What a brilliant strategy for those pulling the strings behind the one-party charade. No matter which "side" wins, the result will be; more government, more spending, more debt, more wars, more dead children and less freedom. The march toward tyranny will not even miss a beat in the Bush/Kerry parade.

We can only hope and pray that enough Republicans and Democrats will regain their collective sanity and vote for a real American patriot like Michael Peroutka in November, because neither Bush nor Kerry has the foggiest clue how to pull America out of the 911 fire that is burning through the last remaining shreds of our freedom.
