OSPIRG to screen “Sicko”

Speaking of everybody’s favorite money-grubbing, off-campus political group, OSPIRG will be screening Michael Moore’s “Sicko” at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Willamette 100. Guess who has two thumbs and isn’t going? (Hint: I’m pointing at myself with my two thumbs right now). According to the poster, the movie is “a shocking look into the United States health care system.” I don’t feel the need to say too much about this, since the good folks at Reason already gave the film a proper thrashing.

P.S. Who wants to bet the movie will be followed by a high-pressure sales pitch to join the OSPIRG army?

P.P.S. If anyone wants to go for the chuckles, let me know how it turns out.

    The real question is do you want the same geniuses who brought you the TSA and the post office running your medical care? I don’t.

    The Reason article hits it pretty well. The film starts well, but then turns into annoying propoganda. It is the perfect documentary to feed off of naive minds, what a great match for OSPIRG! It is tough to compete with Moore ‘great charm,’ thou. I have a friend who always claimed to be strongly conservative, and after watching Sicko was convinced that socialized health care was the only answer to America’s problems.

    People assume that since there are some scumbags in the private sector, we should move all power to the government, which we all know in this day and age has just as many scumbags as any entity. Don’t hate the whack game, hate the whack players.
