Moore News About Fahrenheit Movie

leave a comment »

I haven’t talked about Mikey Moore in a while, so I feel obligated to report a veteran suing him for $85 million because Mikey used his image without permission in “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

A U.S. war veteran has filed a $85 million lawsuit against Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Moore for falsely portraying him in the documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Sergeant Peter Damon, a National Guardsman from Massachusetts who lost both his arms in the Iraq war, claims the film caused him “a loss of reputation, emotional distress, embarrassment and personal humiliation” after it featured a clip of an interview he did with NBC’s “Nightly News.”

Damon claims the way Moore edited the clip made him look to be anti-war by depicting him as “voicing a complaint about the war effort,” when he was actually complaining about “the excruciating type of pain” from his injuries.

Damon is seeking damages in the lawsuit filed in Suffolk Superior Court, Massachusetts, claiming Moore never asked for his consent to use the clip, adding, “(Damon) agrees with and supports the President (George W. Bush) and the United States’ war effort, and he was not left behind.”

Damon’s lawyer, Dennis Lynch, says, “It’s upsetting to him because he’s lived his life supportive of his government, he’s been a patriot, he’s been a soldier, and he’s now being portrayed in a movie that is the antithesis of all of that.”

While I doubt nothing will be done about this, I would be disappointing my fan base by letting the obvious “I guess someone might not be able to super-size his meals for a month” joke go by. So there you have it.

Tax-Cut It Out

leave a comment »

So I was listening to RIGHT-WING RADIO today, and during one top-of-the-hour newscast the guy said that the state of Pennsylvania has, surprise surprise, a budget surplus. And that our wonderful Ed Rendell said he wanted the surplus to go toward, get this, tax cuts. You know it’s an election year when tax-and-spend Democrat pieces of shit want to give you back your hard-earned money. The sad thing is the rank-and-file of his party will actually believe Swin-dell’s line of bullshit.

Not A Good Val-Pack

leave a comment »

I am usually a stickler for reading the fine print of an offer or deal. However, there was one coupon that I contend was intentionally misleading. Every month or so I get these coupons in the mail called Val-Pack. Most of the stuff is for pizza parlors not close to my residence or for products that I have no need for, like aluminum siding. Well, this one vision place advertises in this Val-Pack, and last month I used a coupon for an eye exam and two pairs of contact lenses. So far so good. I then decided to use another coupon a few weeks later for a pair of eyeglasses. Now the coupon says get $75 off a pair of frames and lenses. I look at the fine print to this coupon and it says “Minimum purchase $175.” Fair enough. When I returned to the eye place for my second pair of contact lenses and a follow-up exam I showed them this coupon and said I was interested in getting a pair of glasses; the last time I got my eyes checked was six years ago, and I can’t remember when I got my last set of glasses. Anyway, this lady tells me that the frames I picked out don’t qualify for the discount. When I asked why she said the minimum purchase had to be $175 after the discount, so the frame/lens total had to be $250. She then proceeded to act like I was three years old and said that many people don’t read the fine print of coupons. Uh, bitch. I did read the fine print. I’ve just never had the “minimum purchase” be used after the applied discount.
