War, what is it good for? December 24, 2010

Profit of course. Many companies with strong ties to our government are making billions in wars that nobody wants. These twenty-five companies are the most egregious when it comes to profiteering.

When will people wake up and put a stop to this, one might wonder. It’s very possible that since all or most of the major media outlets just don’t or won’t cover demonstrations this more recent one didn’t get a nickle’s worth of notice. Imagine if the draft were still around, imagine the riots and demonstrations that would be taking place now just like the 60’s and 70’s. The government wants us all to follow along like fat dumb sheep. Stand up America, do something for a change.

 

Health Care Reform March 23, 2010

It was inevitable that the debate on this subject would not be assuaged just because the President just signed the Health Reform Act into law. Many on blogs across the country continue to critique and disparage the event now taking place.

According to those that keep track of such things the country is split almost 50/50 on whether or not this is a good outcome or not. Yet if you look at the percentage of Americans who actually voted in 2008 (56.8% in case you were wondering) that 50/50 split rings hollow.

If you are one of the 43.2% that didn’t vote just shut up for you have not earned the right to complain.

 

Coming to a school near you! January 25, 2010

I pledge allegiance to the Logo of the Corporate States of America, and to the executives for which it stands, one nation under Human Resources, indivisible, with no liberty and injustice for all.

 

Supreme Court and Big Business. January 21, 2010

You have had to be living in a cave if you are not now aware of the recent Supreme Court decision allowing Big Business to dump millions of dollars into campaign coffers to get those that they want into government. It is not enough that we already are held sway by large corporations with highly paid lobbyist cajoling Senators and Congressmen to vote the way these big business bullies desire.

This is the most egregious assault on us, the voting public, ever known. We all must immediately contact our Congressmen and Senators and have them bring about an effort to get laws written that preclude corporate bigwigs and their giant coffers to put their puppets into office.

Now THAT is a mandate. November 5, 2008

With the election of President Elect Barack Obama, a man I am proud to say for whom I voted, I have faith in the belief that we will see a tremendous change in how we are looked at across the world.

I have faith in the belief that we are truely one America an America where anyone can succeed in their chosen career.

I have faith in the belief that our economy will grow and the current financial difficulties will soon fade from our memory.

I have faith in the belief that our children will be able to learn and grow.

I have faith in the belief that health care will be available to one and all.

I have faith in the belief that we will stride harder to harness renewable energies.

The overwhelming victory is a mandate, a mandate for the change we all have sought.

 

ONE POINT ONE TRILLION DOLLARS! September 29, 2008

That is what all Americans lost today.  Even if you think you are not an investor think again.  The drastic fall in the stock market which reflected the inability of our government to do something to jump start the economy has produced a mind boggling loss for one and all.  This is just another example of what the Bush policy has done to this country.  You might think this has no impact on you well guess what you are DEAD wrong.  The guy/gal on the corner who owns a business, you or someone you know, needs a home, car, credit to send your kids to school lost today.  The people you elected spoke their minds are they speaking yours. 

So you say this whole thing has no impact on me! WRONG!  This impacts all of us, the world, maybe even the universe.  Something must be done.  Yes I do not want to pay for some Wall Street bastard or his Wall Street bastard cronies greed but I do not want my friends, family or this nation to suffer any longer.  Get the god damned thing fixed.  Get those republican bastards out of office, get the fuck out of Iraq, get this country back on its feet. 

IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!!!!!

 

Recession? Part two. February 23, 2008

Filed under: economy,Gatzbo's Rants — Robert @ 3:05 pm

A recent post on my blog “Recession? Yes” discussed how I came to the conclusion that we were in a recession. Since that post national pundits seem to agree with that position. However, there is light at the end of tunnel. That same friend of mine commented how his business was picking up along the same lines as had been slowing down. So cheer up America. While it might take several months to happen we can all rest easy that we are in an upswing.
