Michael Moore was on Larry King Live last night with Wolf Blitzer, and there was a classic moment after Moore calls insurance companies "thieves and jackals" and says they'll take the fines rather than help people. "The question should never be, 'How much money are we going to make on this?'" Moore said.

BLITZER: Isn't that the basic nature of American capitalism?

MOORE: Yes, it is, Wolf. That's why this economic system we have is broke, it's bankrupt, it's corrupt, it's unfair, it's not just and We need a more democratic economic system where the people are having a say and the richest one percent don't control the whole thing.

Can you help us out?
