Open Thread: Millionaire Michael Moore Demands Rich People Give Back 'Our' Money
While shameless hypocrisy from filmmaker Michael Moore is not exactly news, it is highly entertaining. True to form, Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv that wealthy folks' money is not actually theirs, but is in fact "a national resource."
They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own -- they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it.
I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to -- we need to see these jobs as something we some, that we collectively own as Americans and you can't just steal our jobs and take them someplace else.

Left unsaid was whether Moore will wire the money or just send a check. Thoughts?
