Their employees probably don't need welfare.... Why would yu want another company to move out of the country? Even if they get their way and taxes are lowered that is still more than they would pay our gov't in taxes from ANOTHER country.

Can anyone confirm Koch brothers are polluters, or is it a matter of newyorker spinning this for political brownie points.

@ whaaa. Looks like a lame attempt at propagating disinfo based on personal bias. see rule #1


Considering this from your first link:



Fred Koch, a charter member of the John Birch Society, with an oil delivery business in Texas.


There would be high stakes reasons to politically smear the company.

In the 1980's congressman Larry McDonald's plane was shot down by the soviets near the sea of Japan. He was outspoken against communism and was a member of the John Birch Society. www.jbs.org...

A quote from that congressman before he was murdered.

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." -Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976

Sorry I missed this when you first posted. EXCELLENT find. S&F

The article is well-researched and well-written. The expose is astounding. ...it's too bad the title focuses on Obama - cuz that's NOT the main message of the article at all.

I'm finally getting why the new equation is: "Libertarianism = Corporatocracy."

It doesn't, imo, but that's the new slant. never made sense to me. But now I know where it's coming from.

Question.

Why has government limited corporate liability? Do you think corporations wrote the law.

OHHH wait, yeah the health care bill was written by the corps and the financial reform was written by the corps but not everything! /s

I find it funny that it always goes to the corps and not the politicians that sign the laws. Anyway, I think we should let the government takeover all the corps, that way we would be protected. /s

Tell me folks, if you have a neighbor that poisoned the water, land or air and we had TRUE courts, do you think that JUST maybe we could stop the criminal behavior. Do you think that maybe all the regulations are not really there to protect US, but are there to protect THEM?

Ever think about that!?

Just a little question for you folks.

People think elected officials run the government - but politicians are almost totally dependent on career bureaucrats (who have their own loyalties and allegiances) to make things happen.

Things sure do get twisted, all right.

I'll cut straight to the point:

Let's say you win elected office. You hope to remain truthful and to the point. First of all, how did u get elected? Who gave you the millions you needed for your campaign?

Second, you want airtime, but you can't get it without the support of mostly hardcore, and supposedly conservative, radio/news media.

If a politician hopes to hold office....he has to go the through the corporations to get there.

If you want to kill a snake...you take his head...not his tail....

Interesting mud slinging....

birthers..... truthers....

Maybe i miss understood?

I happen to be evolving more into a person who sees that the libertarian view makes more sense then the other idiots running the country and the ones they took over for.

Thanks for the thread op, I know who I could go to if I decide to steal the next election



Forum mods stay away from the comments they apply. Heres why...

How are the Koch's any different then Acorn's backers?

Here is the first statement of a libertarina I came across that made sense to me...

Do you know why government will NEVER eliminate poverty?

It is its greatest creation....


As for your fears of a corporate ran world. How is it different then now in your nightmares...

The statements made by those of this line are the big bad corporations are going to x.... They will go around every regulation make they need to be punished ... I say you tax them or nationalise them..

Please at this time google
Dictatorship
Socialism

Your statements match these defs...

I assume your not guilty of your thoughts. Your victims
of your environment and the stupidity of a few fearful men...

Take a minute and sit with me... Your mad and upset because part of you recognizes I am right. Ill even prove it to you...

Get a sheet of paper...
Grab a writing utensil..

Grad some thing to drink...

Now you have your drink.. Take a drink.. good...

We are going to use our brains... You know that drink... Yeap thats going to be our example for this game...

starting with you the reader...

How much have you just paid for that drink?

How much tax?

Now before you growl those that got it out of the tap think a minute.... You pay tax on supplies that enabled you to drink that water...

Start tracing all the taxes paid so you could get that drink....supplies, truckers, gas, stockers, ect..

keep going and you begin to realize how expensive that drink is..

Well...

stop right there I am not done... No excuses for that, no justification for one of the rulers greatest scams ever...

How cheap would it all be if we removed all of that tax on your drink?

Well I know your addicted to having to force someone else to pay for that light at the end of the street. It takes time and the first step is to admit you have a problem... Like all drug addicts you have to be nursed off of it...

Now how does this tie in.... Of course businessmen love this model.... I love it... it means all your little government funded gestapos have NO MONEY... you young budding socialist have to WORK for a living...

With this type of model you next will complain about ect....

well in this scenario union and talent agents have a lot more room and pull... After all some people's talents are worth more then others.. GET OVER IT... The idea of our democracy is that it is a fair shake in that you get a turn at bat... what you do with its yours...



These brothers come from a family of hard workers who did this amazing thing called save and sacrifice... They had to rebuild after they where destroyed nearly at first by well meaning protectionist such as those you are endeared to. Next in order to make it daddy did what he had to. Why? because fearful dogs decided not to let them in... (remember libertarians do believe in dueling as part of a social check)

Now after another generation has made it and raised the game up. Waa police show up... Of course if I had money I would not want someone telling me I had to share... It is like a police officer showing up and demanding you hand over five hundred dollars or you go to jail. Its only a tax, Or its for the little children, will the thiefs please make up their maind. I am sick of the need for your safety garbage...

Of course the smart man pays NO ATTENTION to stupid rules.... (how many times do you pull up to a stop sign and not completely stop for three seconds.)

These men are great Americans and I hope they take down BOTH parties this next election. They took their fathers company that he built and raised it to the next level using the same old time worn secret. Hard work... I only hope that in the coming generation my own sons and daughters take what I am building to the next level...

Oh and before I hear the argument that we are spoiling our environment,...

All animals (remember we are still animals) change their environment to suit their purpose... Look at an ant colony, or beavers building a damn... If you think I am wrong I want you to go outside and find an ant hill. Stick your hand into it and pull out the queen. Let her know that she is dis-poling her local environment. She is building structures with out the proper permits. also she has not done any environmental impact studies to see if her or her workers are having a negative affect on the local ecosystem.

While there dont forget to attempt to educate the workers that they can form a union and go on strike.

Listen you can not live into todays world and claim that you yourself do not contribute negatively to the ecosystem. I can prove it. look at the piece of equipment your using to read this..... your carbon footprint just got a little bigger shame on you...

The last thing we need is more laws... That solution has failed to work, 12 times out of 10... They will use the laws if they maintain control to say it is the mandate of the people. Afterall in texas you have to have insurance, registration, and inspection before you even consider the cost of gas... I would love to see a democratic strategy that made sense when it came to the pocket book that does not end in.. Well a few people will pay a little more...

In closing of my little rant, I believe it is important to remember the last person who insisted he to had a plan for change... His like the democrats was based on hate as well



One very pissed Democrat calls

LMAO, philanthropists.


If I make a few Billion dollars, screw over people and nature for generations to come and give a few Millions to some charities that would make me a good person?


Sounds like a play out of the wealthy politicians handbook.
You know, the one the republicans and democrats use every day of the week.

For our economy to grow and be successful we have to produce things...and we have to buy them or in the least....export more than we import.

We are doing none of this.

The problem REALLY started when our country, the people we elected to go to DC, to look after OUR best interests, passed NAFTA and these other "FREE" trade agreements.

I know here, where I live, NAFTA KILLED the fruit industry here.

In these other countries, were we now have this NAFTA "free trade agreement", they can use all kinds of pesticides on the fruit that they sell to the US, which are illegal to spray on the fruit in the US, and sell their fruit here in the US at a lot cheaper price because of it.

Citrus owners, here in Fl., have to spray their trees numerous times a season to keep their fruit "healthy"/eye appealing, so that the consumer will buy it, in these other countries, that we have this "free trade agreement" with, they can use these pesticides, which are illegal in the US, once a year.

Because of that, these other countries can sell the fruit to the US, far cheaper than our own citrus growers here in the US, can sell it here even in our own country.

Free trade with other countries is VERY unfair if both parties don't abide by the same rules.

I like your response would you mind finding a few more instances and post it here. I had glossed over that part in my mind not meaning to. It is a very valid point.

Not only tariffs but the rules governing production in competing countries.

Should a tarring be raised to force matching prices in an economy based on the cost of us regulations versus absence of regs in foreign country.
I starred you post...
