And an evening with Moore is seldom without surprises.

Listening to Michael Moore will be a much needed break from all the wealthy Republican complaining and uninformed complaints from those middle class people too stupid enough to realize that the Republican party does not represent their interests unless their incomes exceed $1.5 million a year.

Yet another offensive, lying, hypocrite that needs to be ignored..which he is mostly.

Except when he sells millions of tickets to his movies, and hundreds of thousands of DVD's. Other than that he is ignored. Except when he sells tickets to events such as this. Other than that he is ignored.

I don't think I have ever heard Mr Moore whine about the taxes he pays, THAT is Patriotism!

Michael Moore is the Rush Limbaugh of the left - political, but a total blowhard who just skims the surface of issues, and who's opinions are not very helpful.

Wonder will he answer why is he supporting the 99ers in New York and Wisconsin's protest against Gov. Scott Walker.....BUT....made millions off of "Roger & Me" (but fails to say ONE THING on national TV about the possible Emergency Manager for Flint) and act as if he could not see earlier this year protests in Lansing, Michigan? Will try and get to the event to ask this question (as a member of the blogging press). Wonder if I will get an answer....

You people do not get it. Michael Moore works for the Right and the Left. Or, more correctly, for the establishment. For example, he pushes the Left agenda to restrict gun ownership and for socialism. But, he also covers for the right by not revealing the full extent of the crimes. If anyone want me to explain further, I would be happy to if I am not censored by

I support Michael Moore. You people who knock him are a bunch of liars . It doesn't matter how much money a person has. What is important is what one does with his/her money. Michael Moore stands with the 99% and I support him. -Peace, Kitty

A-- Number ONE hypocrite. Says he speaks for the 99% but is a member of the 1/10th of the top 1 %. His production folks that make his movies are not in unions, they are not paid above average wages. This guy is a fake beyond compare. He eats it all and only the crumbs are left for his little people, what a pathetic fake he is ! Good Day

So, all you geniuses HATE capitalism! Who knew? I am glad that Michael will be in A2 and continue to expose the fraud of the Right! Why don't we have a TeaPublicon genius to come explain what happened to the mythological Trickle Down! There must be countless examples. Ronnie wouldn't lie. Or would he? And Top Cat, can we see the video of your place West of Ann Arbor since we know you would never live here?

@David again Correction to my post above. Moore works for the establishment to cover for the right. That would be more accurate.

@David "I am glad that Michael will be in A2 and continue to expose the fraud of the Right!" He works for the right.

It is great Moore is coming to A2 to rub elbows with his groupies for his book tour. But I wonder if he plans on stopping in Flint? Probably not, no sense hanging out with the unwashed masses.

Groupies! What a great term for his fans. Or bobble-heads.

Michael Moore is a left gatekeeper. He reveals enough to make establishment Republicans and conservatives look bad but hides the really criminal acts. An excellent example is Farrenheit 911. He does some good by exposing unethical acts but helps hides many criminal acts.

@Peter Fahrenheit 911. Made the Bush admin. look bad but left out the really incriminating material.

I could do with less Moore.

Perhaps the evening performance will include a video tour of his million dollar mansion on Torch Lake.

I agree with Top Cat... Michael Moore is an act. The real Michael Moore is a millionaire who actually embodies the exact values he speaks against.

I thought he had a place in Bellaire?
