These Gazillionaires REALLY Care About the 'Little People!'

The Koch Brothers Hero?

02.25.11

The REICH-Wing Koch Brothers Are Stealing YOUR Future

Wisconsin has a proud history of standing up to the PTB and protecting the working men and women of this once, great nation.

Like Robert La Follette, Wisconsin's governor from 1901 to 1906, and U.S. Senator from 1906 to 1925, who developed the Wisconsin Idea, as it came to be called, was that efficient government required control of institutions by the voters rather than special interests, and that the involvement of specialists in law, economics, and social and natural sciences would produce the most effective government.

That type of progressive thinking must horrify the Koch Brothers, cut from the same cloth of those who helped bring into power fascists like Mussolini.

The Koch's probably figure if they can break Wisconsin unions and let fascism take over, the rest of the states will be easy pickings.
Walker Pranked by Koch Impersonator

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker fell victim to a prank on Wednesday by a blogger pretending to be the right-wing billionaire David Koch. The blogger, Ian Murphy, spoke to Walker in a 20-minute recorded phone call. Impersonating Koch, Murphy offered to help Walker plant "troublemakers" at the demonstrations.

Ian Murphy, as David Koch: "We’ll back you any way we can. But what we were thinking about the crowds was planting some troublemakers."

Gov. Scott Walker: "You know, well, the only problem with—because we thought about that. The problem with—or my only gut reaction to that would be right now the lawmakers I’ve talked to have just completely had it with them. The public is not really fond of this. My only fear would be, is if there was a ruckus caused, is that that would scare the public into thinking maybe the Governor’s got to settle to avoid all these problems."

Who or What are the Koch Brothers?

Multi-Billionaires Koch Brothers Stealthily Fund the Tea Party
Commenting on the Koch brothers, the New York Times’ Frank Rich wrote, “There’s just one element missing from these snapshots of America’s ostensibly spontaneous and leaderless populist uprising: the sugar daddies who are bankrolling it, and have been doing so since well before the ‘death panel’ warm-up acts of last summer. Three heavy hitters rule. You’ve heard of one of them, Rupert Murdoch. The other two, the brothers David and Charles Koch, are even richer, with a combined wealth exceeded only by that of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett among Americans. … Their self-interested and at times radical agendas, like Murdoch’s, go well beyond, and sometimes counter to, the interests of those who serve as spear carriers in the political pageants hawked on Fox News. The country will be in for quite a ride should these potentates gain power, and given the recession-battered electorate’s unchecked anger and the Obama White House’s unfocused political strategy, they might.”
Trashing the environment and killing people to make money? Just another day in the life of the Koch Brothers
The Kochs are longtime libertarians who believe in drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy, and much less oversight of industry—especially environmental regulation.
Hit These Fascists Where it Hurts, in Their Pocketbooks
Boycott These Koch Industries Companies

Georgia-Pacific paper and pulp company, maker of Brawny paper towels, Angel Soft toilet paper, Mardi Gras napkins and towels and Quilted Northern toilet paper.

Invista, a polymer and fibers company that makes Stainmaster carpet, and Lycra fiber, among other products.
These rich sleaze bags even scare people with lies about universal health care by funding a front-group called "Americans for Prosperity."
A week before the Nov. 2, 2010 mid-term elections, AFP began running an ad featuring a Canadian resident, identified on the AFP website as Shona Holmes, who said she developed a brain tumor in Canada and would be dead if she had relied upon the country's state-run health care: “Many Americans wonder what the new health care bill will do. Well, I know. If I had waited for treatment in my government-run health care system, I’d be dead.” The ad does not mention that the U.S. health care bill does not, in fact, legislate public health care.
Shona DID NOT have cancer, but a cyst on her pituitary gland

Anyone want to bet who will get in trouble, the prankster who tricked His Royal Majesty, Wisconsin Governor Walker into admitting he'd gladly bust some heads by sending in hired goons posing as 'union' protesters, thereby breaking state and federal law or the genius who tricked Walker into admitting he's a thug?

Libertarians? The Koch brothers? I can slap a Fresh Peaches label on a can of dog shit, that doesn't make it peaches. Fascist is the correct term, lets call a spade a spade. They are an insult to all the true Libertarians of America, myself being among those ranks.

And they won another victory. After posting this, read that the union busting bill passed the Wisconsin legislature.

But I got a feeling this ain't over, each day, more and more Americans are waking up to the fact that this is a dictatorship, not a democratic republic.

Now we know how they decorate their gazillionaire castles during Christmas - toilet papers loaded up with s*it everywhere.

Curious... does spamella geller have phone numbers of koch brothers? I bet she is probably acting like an animal in heat to call 'em up and create some type of unholiest alliance to keep America muzzie free.

I saw the wisconsin legislation passed.

Being an outsider looking in at the US, I gotta be honest, if the globe is going to have real change, it has to begin in the US.

I have been thinking about this for a while, hate to put it all on the Americans, but that is what it boils down to.

The US grip extends world wide and no other nation can throw the death hold off, unless the americans start to loosen the grip.

Like the saying goes, the truth hurts and what you said is the truth; it all begins here.

Between the world's most powerful military, the world's most corrupt banks and politicians and the world's largest counterfeiting outfit, the Federal Reserve helping those 'Too Big to Fail" Wall Street bankster gangsters launder illegal profits from drugs and weapons sales, the USA has indeed become the 'Great Satan.'

Until Americans wake up and realize that what's going on in DC is a helluva lot more important than some Lady Gag Gag gossip or who won some sporting contest, we'll continue to be slaves and the PTB will use our stupidity to make misery around the world.
