    Well maybe I didn't understand everything as a kid, but I certainly knew about pollutants like oil and the harm they were doing. And that was way before High School.

    Ehhh... I don't know about this, anyway. Why does everyone bother taking the integrity of a news organization that PURPOSELY scours the country every year for any instance of a "Holiday Tree" just so they can put on their annual Christmas Special "War on Christmas?"

    Seriously state and local governments... calling it a Christmas Tree is actually a LOSS for Fox News! I propose every state and town call it a Christmas Tree, then you'll win the completely imaginary battle made up to scare people.

    One of the headline news the other day is how Haliburton helped destroy evidence and coverup their intentional shoddy work and other other factors surrounding the Deep Horizon drill explosion. Haliburton of course, the no bid energy contract company that once had Dick Cheney as CEO and who had him on retainer as he lied his way into war in Iraq which gave them unimaginable profits.

    But here's the thing...people might complain about big oil, big brother technology implanted into Apple products, this or that corporation...but they still use all that stuff

    This is crazy! Cars 2 had the same idea, but not complaints with that movie! (related to alternate fuel)

    It's sort of half imaginary. Is it as bad as they say it is? No. But I do occasionally meet people who are really anal about religion never being mentioned at Christmas.

    Yes and Cars two was an intentional message I believe

    I couldn't tell you what network or what site, but I remember Cars 2 getting quite a bit of flack about the political undertones (real or imagined) in that movie. If this movie had been about gum drops and candy canes the American Dental Association would have boycotted it. Someone is always going to find a hidden agenda.

    The character of Hobo Joe was clearly an attempt to encourage more government spending on the wretched, no-good freeloadin' poor people.

    Wrong. It was clearly an advertisement for fingerless gloves. Product placement is so rampant these days.

    On one hand, the plot involved the character behind the oil company being evil. But in the end, it turned out the organic fuel guy was the one behind everything.

    This makes me soo angry. Really. I just dont understand why its gotta get twisted. Those three idiots clearly did NOT watch the film. And to say its anti capitalism is BS when the whole movie is about these characters WORKING from the ground up to rebuild their business. and to EARN money by performing to BUY back their building. How is this movie anti capitalism?? Even Fozzie working at that club in Reno to stay a float, or Gonzo being a successful, RICH, plumbing tycoon. These people are just trying to find any reason to hate anything artistic, or happy in this world. And anyone else annoyed that they kept telling that girl to sssh so they could talk ish on the president? It is INSANITY!

    Like I said... the whole plan was for an oil tycoon to make alternative fuels look dangerous, driving the cars back into the safety of oil based fuels.

    That's why I loved the second one over the first one, an anti-oil conglomerate conspiracy theory.

    My reaction to Fox News.

    Dominicboo1 Well-Known Member

    Yeah, but he was really trying to make the alternate fuel look bad, by really using gas. Allinol was meant to make a car seem easy to die, so alternate fuel would seem dangerous. (He really was supporting oil)

    Yup I saw that. I have to admit, I was almost positive someone was going to complain about the Moopets for this reason. I don't think that was the filmmakers' intentions at all. But I did figure it would be fodder for people who look for these things.

    A strong undercurrent of America is this virulent thuggish, criminally minded "gangsta" subculture. It crosses into impoverished white, black, latino, southeast asian, and other cross sections(though admittedly, most closely associated with inner city black youth)
    The Moopets perfectly shines an accurate light on this AS does the Tex Richman character with thuggish greedy corporate scumbags:)

    After seeing the film another time, I have to agree. I just noticed so many times
    that an undercurrent of socialist marxism and a spread-the-wealth commie agenda reared its head...and crazy harry, with his islamifascism jihadist propaganda... PSYCHE!;)

    Seriously, how to these right wing clowns take themselves seriously?
