    Just got done watching Micheal Moore's movie, "Sicko". I watched the added features section, and one was on the country of Norway, and some of the things that the citizens enjoy.

    Anyone else seen this, and what do you think?

    I have it but only seen about 40 minutes of it. When I get to watch the rest of it I'll give a review. It seemed pretty good what I watched of it.

    I believe this is the part you're referring to Paul. Apparently, it was CUT from the movie.

    P.S.

    No, I haven't seen the movie.

    Those of ya that are so against Micheal Moore should sit down and watch this film. Ya I know it would just be a waste of time to see how bad the health care system is here in the US. After ya watch the film ya may just wanna MOVE THERE.

    In countries that have different ways of handling things, the culture is different, thats why they don't have our kinds of problems. Is the video insinuating that police with guns cause serious crime?

    Aint going to happen Jason sorry. Even if whatever he put out actually was good and put out good info which I dont belive it will (at least to me) I would not see it. If you had a pirated version I still wouldnt watch it. Not one penny of my paycheck and not one second of my time will go to that blowhard

    Yeah, we can't use Norway as model for our society because we are a breed apart. Virtually none of their systems would work here. I'm glad it does work for them, but it just wouldn't work here. Put the Cryps, and the Arians in that prison together, and see if it still would function. :embarassed:

    Anyways, like I said...I'm happy that they have found their virtual eutopia. Wouldn't mind visiting there, but couldn't EVEN live there.

    They do have some good heavy metal, so some rock shows would top my agenda if I went there.

    So, Commando...What do YOU think???
