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.

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.

 

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!!!!!

 

Still thinking about voting for John McCain? May 23, 2008

As we get closer and closer to what one might say will be the biggest election allowing us to change the direction of our great country we must soon decide who best can achieve that lofty goal.  If you think John McCain can do the job you had better watch these two videos.  They show exactly what you will be voting for.

McCain vs. McCain
McCain vs. McCain 2

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

 

Arrogant war monger. March 20, 2008

It isn’t bad enough that George Bush keeps spewing garbage about Iraq or that his self-centered arrogance and fumbling orations have really made me dislike him and his ilk even more another moron has finally gotten my dander up and gets a good dose of a Gatzbo Rant. 

This past week, while being interviewed by a well known and respected newsperson, Dick Cheney was confronted with the fact that 75% of Americans do not approve of the war in Iraq his response “So?” followed by a smirk that made my blood run cold.  This arrogant fool has added fuel to the fire of my dislike for the current administration.  Oh sure, he and George will be out of office in due time, not soon enough by the way.  So lighten up right? Wrong?  If you, the voter, believe that Republicans have a hero in John McCain, think again.  When he was interviewed and confronted with the same facts he said, “Well I disagree with the majority of Americans.”

 Don’t kid yourself America.  If a Republican gets into office you definetely get more of the same.  I will cast my vote for Mr. Barrack Obama.  He has stated that he will pull our troops out of Iraq.  The naysayers state that if we do pull out of Iraq we will have lost and Iraq will fall into chaos and civil war.  So be it.  Let them be responsible for themselves.  Take the billions and billions of dollars spent and are being spent and use it to create jobs, figure out what to do about health care, finish the job in Afghanistan and rebuild our image around the world.

 

Outrage is too soft a word. February 1, 2008

Filed under: Gatzbo's Rants,Iran,Iraq,Muslim,Osama Bin Laden — Robert @ 7:41 pm

I just heard the news regarding the latest bomb blast in Iraq.  The reports that two women with Downs Syndrome were blown up via remote control killing and maiming many.  Muslims around the world continue to say that Islam is a religion of peace.  Yeah Sure!  As of yet no one considering themselves as a peace loving Muslim has condemned this latest outrage.  If we, non-Muslim’s, are to believe that Islam is what we have been told these murdering bastard criminals  must be found and prosecuted to the full extent of international law.  Additionally, any Muslim that condones or looks the other way must be held responsible for aiding and abetting and held to the same law.

 

Open letter to all Americans. October 24, 2007

It matters not if you consider yourself Republican, Democrat, Independent, Liberal, Conservative, Right or Left as long as you call yourself a concerned American this is for you. Each and everyone of us must do whatever it takes to insure that the current administration and its penchant for war is stopped short in its tracks. We cannot allow the warmonger leaders of our country the ability to place us and the world further in harms way. The recent comments about creating World War III, wether taken in or out of context, should scare the living daylights out of one and all. If you believe that Iran is a threat by having nuclear weapons a/k/a weapons of mass destruction, harken back to the day when this government used those words to push us into a conflagration that sees no end in sight. Our attention is best placed fighting the terrorists that brought us to 9/11. We must remove all of your troops, not only from Iran, but Korea, Germany and other nations where we currently have a military presence and send them to Afghanistan and finish what we started – wipe out al Queda and the Taliban and anyone else there that harbours them or gives them aid. If our representatives in the House and Senate cower to the demands of this President and his cronies they must pay the price of being voted out of office and/or impeached. This is madness, pure and simple.
