Capitalism a Love STory NOT in the Gulag so far...

I have been looking forward to Micheal Moore's latest film, 'Capitalism a Love Story' but so far, even though it has been out since last Friday.. no Gulag showings. Part of the problem is that there is only one family that owns all the theatres right in the Yakima Gulag. Now to be fair to them, years ago they courageously showed 'The Last Temptation of Christ' a very bold move for a conservative Catholic family, and in our Gulag this was brave indeed because the theatres owned by the Mercy family were picketed for showing this film.

So odds are the fact that Micheal Moore's latest film is not showing here yet has more to do with distribution and profits than with the fact the owners are fairly conservative. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt because they HAVE in fact shown other Micheal Moore films.

HOWEVER these have frequently been special showings arranged by people who are in the Peace and Justice community. So maybe that will happen here. I sure hope so because I badly want to see this film. Odds are though, my friends and I will have to rent a copy, make mucho pop corn and watch that way. Steta. no ... SRAMOTA!
