Aschlafly - You have such a strong opinion on this film that is still being shown in previews. Have you even seen it? Guitarplayer 16:50, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
- Michael Moore's films: garbage in, garbage out. How often does Sicko talk about rationing that results from government-controlled medicine???--Aschlafly 20:04, 29 June 2007 (EDT)
Front page news
I find it amusing that the front page tells people that Sicko was critically panned but the article itself only features a quote from a critic lauding the movie. I'd ask someone to change the front page if I could to reflect the actual article. Anyway, I've seen the movie. It makes a powerful case - not so much that other countries' healthcare systems are better but rather that our system's failings are much worse. The "Let's do something less bad than this" is a good argument, and the case is made well. --TraitortotheCause 15:30, 30 June 2007 (EDT)
I've noticed that this article does not cover SiCKO's embargo violation investigation. I've written a section on it:
The production of SiKO has brought about a controversy concerning Moore’s adherence to the United States broad trade embargo imposed against Cuba since 1962. A United States Treasury Department letter implied that Moore did not receive authorization before traveling to Cuba to film his documentary; this would be in direct conflict with the embargo’s rules. Moore is now facing a U.S. government probe on the legality of the Cuba trip. He has hired a Washington attorney, David Boies, to represent him in the matter, and states, "I have broken no laws, and I have nothing to hide.”
Should it be added? --Tash 15:17, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
- Good idea, and apparently well-supported. Please add. Thanks.--Aschlafly 09:42, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
It's pretty sad when you call the film biased; when you're review is even more biased. Even if you didn't like, at least try to seem like you see both sides of the arguement.
- Do you realize this is a conservative website? We are not going to have a NPOV. Of course, the film has a liberal bias, as does the filmmaker. You should not be surprised to see a conservative analysis here. --Crocoite 18:21, 10 August 2007 (EDT)
I agree with Crocoite, the only bias there is the liberal bias. Conservapedia has no responsibility to represent their falsehood. --BiancaW 18:30, 30 June 2008 (EDT)
"in fact NHS policies vary between the four constituent countries of the UK" -this is completely inaccurate, NHS policy is the same all over the UK.Also for clarity prescription charges are a flat fee of £6.85 regardless of what the drug costs. NHS dentists are heavily subsidised and only a nominal fee is charged (although if you are unemployed or elderly you are not charged).
