TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- A film festival being organized by left-wing director Michael Moore has some right-wing competition.

This is my first time posting an article. Not very good at it yet, but at least I managed to include a link.
The woman that organized the alternative freedom film festival was on the local news last night.She looks very lizard-like and was basically saying that anyone who would go to the Traverse City Film Festival is a freedom-hating, god-hating, anti-patriot. Unreal. I almost felt insulted but I considered the source.

1. These people confuse....
blind nationalism with patriotism. Of course with their limited intelligence, vocabulary and reacting only with primal instincts, what would one expect?
I'm sure it will be the anti-social event of the year.

2. I love the classic Rightwing argument of...
"anyone with a conflicting view point hates freedom, god, and America!"

3. Different article about Traverse City Film Fest
http://hub.lsj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050707/... City has 'Mad Hot' start to movie week


Excited movie buffs queued up to buy tickets for the inaugural Traverse City Film Festival - and to meet its founder, the Oscar-winning director Michael Moore.
"It's a great thing you're doing," Mimi Bruder, the first person in line, told Moore, who stood behind the counter as sales got under way. Bruder chose to see "Mad Hot Ballroom," a documentary about 11-year-old competitors in a New York City ballroom dancing exposition, which will be shown on the festival's opening night.

Moore, a Flint native who now lives in northern Michigan, announced the lineup for the July 27-31 festival. Among the 31 films are four classics that will be shown free of charge on a 40-foot-high, inflatable screen in a park beside Grand Traverse Bay: "Jaws," "The Princess Bride," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Casablanca."

"Broken Flowers" was the grand prize winner at this year's Cannes International Film Festival. It stars Bill Murray as a ladies' man searching for a son he may have fathered, and features Sharon Stone and Jessica Lange.
"People will see it in Traverse City before the rest of America sees it later in the summer," Moore said.

4. Traverse City is a really beautiful area
I was up there for Memorial Day, my grandpa lives out on the Old Mission Penninsula. Lots of sandy beaches and nice scenery, plus free winetasting at some pretty good vineyards in the area. I personally recommend Chateau Chantal-their wine is the best and the view from the main building is unmatched.

The film festival should do well there. There are a lot of old people and freeper-types, but there are also plenty of liberals, too. I do think they managed to pass a city ordinance banning discrimination against gays, or to incorporate that into their city charter or something like that a few years ago. There was a big controversy. If they did, they managed to do something Royal Oak wasn't able to.
