It’s time for a Viet Nam style protest to get us out of Afghanistan May 16, 2011

It’s time for a Viet Nam style protest. A true get out the masses young and old to finally put a stop to the war in Afghanistan. I’ve been without TV for a while, well a couple of weeks at least, so I use the interwebz to get the fix I need.

I like certain programs so I search out any web content of them to view. I enjoy “60 Minutes” so I went looking and watched the last episode. The one that really made me mad at the government and their efforts with the war was the Lara Logan interview with Amrullah Saleh the former intelligence head in that country.

What made me madder was the fact that our government knows now and has known for quite some time that what Mr. Saleh has said over the years and is saying now is not only true but so accurate in the details that without some action more of our young men and women, will die so as not to upset the relationship this country has with Pakistan. Mr. Saleh was asked by Ms. Logan what should we call Pakistan, an ally or a very good ally, Mr. Saleh without blinking an eye said terrorist nation.

Pakistan according to Mr. Saleh not only harbors al-Queda and Taliban principals but supports their efforts against our troops. He also told our intelligence agencies that the now dead Osama Bin Laden was holed up in a town in Pakistan which although was incorrect it was a town a short 12 kilometers from where he was found.

We provide billions of dollars to Pakistan, they take the money, flip us off and continue to aide and abet those who would dance in the streets when Americans die.

If you haven’t seen the interview go Google/Bing the episode of which I speak. If it doesn’t piss you off I pity you.
Unite brother and sister Americans, get the word out, get your Senators and Representatives to put an end to this madness. Write, cajole, scream, organize do whatever you can.

Undiebomber. February 1, 2010

As you might have surmised by some of my posts here I am a liberal so much so that sometimes I have problems with right turns. There is currently a debate being discussed on my local radio station as to whether or not the Undiebomber should have the right not to talk after being read his Miranda rights.

My take is that he should be provided the same rights he would have in his country therefor if he has little or no rights there why should he have any rights here.

not only has a history of raping this country through fraud, over-billing and bribery (with their cronies in government turning a blind eye) you can add total disregard for the rights of women in their employ.

It seems that Dick Cheney’s old employer made prospective female employees sign a waiver stating that they could not sue the company in the cases of sexual assault.

What? Are you kidding me? And when newly elected Senator Al Franken proposed an amendment to federal funding legislation that would ban money going to any contractor that limits/bans female rights to sue one would think this legislative amendment would pass with not one nay vote. Well guess again. Thirty, yes thirty elected officials voted against it

I’ll make it easy for all who read this, here is a list of the thirty senators so you know who to vote out of office when their term(s) expire:

Alexander (R-TN)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Gregg (R-NH)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kyl (R-AZ)
McCain (R-AZ) remember this guy?
McConnell (R-KY)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)
Wicker (R-MS)

Vote these people out of office, period.

 

With fewer than 90 days left, George Bush is still at it. November 21, 2008

I was so excited that we would soon be free of this current administration. Those that actually come here to read my sometimes rants know of my total disregard for George Bush and his cronies. So when I came across the following tidbit I just had to put my thoughts down again.
Georgie B is going to use his Midnight Regulations power to rape the environment again, stick it to “average joe worker” even plumbers, allow federally funded institutions to turn down abortions to name a few. Read this, I did, and it makes me sick.

 

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!!!!!

Want a third Bush/Cheney term? That is exactly what you will get so wake up and make the change.
