Michael Moore: Private citizens' money is a 'national resource'

Hat tip to Jonah Goldberg. The inside of Michael Moore’s mind must be a very confusing place. Also, smelly.

“They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with our life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this, we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it,” Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.

The money he’s referring to is money that wealth Americans have earned for themselves (or inherited, as if that distinction matters) and keep in banks. In the same interview, Moore also said that private sector jobs are something that “we collectively own.”

Does that mean that we’re all entitled to a cut of the proceeds from Fahrenheit 9-11? I’ll take my slice now, thanks.
