DUDE, WHERE'S YOUR WEBSITE: MICHAEL MOORE OUT-SOURCING DESIGN, SERVER TO CANADA!

Advocate Michael Moore may have released a book titled DUDE, WHERE'S MY COUNTRY?, and may have vaulted to stardom documenting worker's rights and corporate malfeasance in Flint, Michigan, but that has not stopped Moore from outsourcing his website design and servers -- to companies based in Canada!

Cannes-bound Moore, the great protector of the U.S. working class, has outsourced the design of his Web site to a foreign company in Canada, records show.

PLANK -- based in Montréal, Québec -- is the development and design company behind MichaelMoore.com.

Meanwhile, Moore's site is hosted by a foreign owned company, Webcore Labs, of Calgary, Alberta Canada. [

How many people does it take to run his website? One, maybe part-time?

Or blowhards of any sort. And to vaguely quote a Jon Stewart joke, Canada exists up until the U.S. runs out of all of it's natural resources.

Maybe he does this not for cheap labor but because he thinks these companies do the best job available.

Out of curiosity... can you show me how having his website hosted by Canadians is contradictory to anything Moore has said?

Yod don't find it mildly ironic that the guy who writes a book entitled Dude, Where's My County? and started on his path to being a millionaire by talking about the loss of Jobs in his hometown of Flint, Michigan being hypocritical? Sure, it's minor compared to some of Moore's other BS, but nobody said Michael Moore should be taken seriously anyway...

Oh yeah, because Flint is known for it's huge IT industry.

And even if it was, Moore's site is but a mere rain drop in the torrential drought of unemployment in Flint and in the country in general.

BTW, he has shown much love for Canada. Conversely, he has tried over and over again to show just how messed up America is. In a way, it almost makes sense.

And I don't want to hear anyone who has ever said, "If you don't like it, get out!" complain about this.

I suppose then it's do as I say, not do as I do.

So the solution to our problems is to ship American jobs to Canada?

Sound advice is sound advice, whether the person giving that advice actually follows it or not. Not that I'm saying that he has actually contradicted his words (I was playing Devil's Advocate to show that even at worst it still isn't very bad)

OR...

Maybe just the solution to HIS problem(s) (assuming he had/has one). But feel free to spin one person's actions as being indicative or even suggestive of OUR actions.

Do you ever get dizzy from spinning so much?

So, does that mean you do NOT watch any TV show nor movie made in Canada? Do you not watch wath Raw nor a sports game in Canada because you'd be supporting them?

My problem is NOT that he outsourced the jobs. That's his personal choice.

My problem is the fact that he he is hypocrite, plain and simple.

Then why do you support ANY politican or political advocate?

Almost EVERY politician can be shown to be a hypocrite. Including your boy "W."

So don't give me any B.S. that you don't like him because he's a hypocrite. Other wise you wouldn't post anything about anything political.

You don't like him because you don't agree with his politics.

Plain and simple.

I see no problem with allowing the best company you find do a job for you, just because it isn't american. I have caught myself not buying clothing because it said american made quite a few times, mostly because I've found that american jeans don't last as long as others I have bought.

Also, all the best video games are asian, does this mean you never played METAL GEAR SOLID or a FINAL FANTASY game because they weren't 'All American'.

Maybe Vince is right to change Benoit's home town.
