From this link:

Filmmaker Michael Moore, appearing on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO to plug the DVD release of his Capitalism: A Love Story screed, cited the 250,000 killed in Haiti, which he snidely described as an unregulated “Republican’s paradise,” as an apt analogy to justify further regulation of U.S. banks.

Live via satellite from Manhattan, Moore spouted:

Chile had an earthquake this past week that was 500 times greater than the earthquake in Haiti. But here’s the big difference. In Chile, they have various — very serious regulations when it comes to building codes. So a thousand people died, sadly, but a thousand people died with a 500 times greater earthquake. And in Haiti, where there are no building codes, no regulations — a Republican’s paradise — a quarter of a million people died.

Any thoughts on Mr. Moore’s comments? Please make your opinions know.

    There are no taxes on the rich either making it the perfect world for the republicans. Of course no taxes on the rich and no middle class means no infrastructure so no real economy just millions of people stuck in poverty struggling to survive any way they can. Just the place to send all those smug right wing commentators telling poor americans to just get a job.

    This posting is nothing more than a study in self-pity. People who preach this victim mind-set have not idea how silly you sound. First of all, get over the black/white excuse for failure thing. The real victims are the working people who slave their lives away only to have their hard earned income stolen by the government and “redistributed” to parasites. Second, jobs don’t grow on trees. Risk taking individuals create them. If you want a job, don’t get one…make one. Third, and saddest, this economy is headed downward. Yes, today is the best the “jobs” picture will be for the next 10 years, as redistribution turns this country into the next Venezuela – and you see just how great things are going there.
