Dude Where's My Country - some thoughts

So I'm a couple of chapter's into Michael Moore's "Dude, Where's My Country?"

So far I'm pretty un-impressed. Most of the arguments he makes have been brought up in his movie, Farenheight 911. Also, he has the general pattern of: dig up interesting facts from public sources, discuss how odd they are, and then propose an out-there suggestion to justify them.

So, most of the conclusions he offers to make the facts fit aren't ones I would agree with.

Though, I do give him a bit of credit. He's pretty clear about where the facts stop and his hypothosizing starts. Which means you can disregard his wacky thoughts and still learn something.
