The evil Koch brothers
These guys would sell their grandmother if they thought they could get a nickel for her. They've made it a life's work of screwing over people, bribery and environmental murder. One of their pipelines in Texas leaked gas and incinerated two teens, An independent engineer hired to investigate the "accident" said the condition of the pipeline amounted to Swiss cheese. They have been sited many times for oil spills and fined hundreds of millions of dollars yet continue to make billions.
When a brother Bill Koch decided that he had had enough of the business he sold his shares only to be shortchanged by the other two.
The two (David and Charles) are behind the Tea Party movement and are hell bent on ridding this country of corporate regulations as well as Social Security and Medicare. Their role model was their father who had a helping hand in the founding of the John Birch Society. That, if you're forgotten is the extreme wing of the republican party that Barry Goldwater ran off in the 1960's as being too extreme. Well they (Birchers) are back and under the tiny tent the republicans set up.
When you're out shopping and you run across these products I hope you'll skip them as the profits go to the Kochs.
Lycra fiber and Stainmaster carpet. Georgia- Pacific LLC, which Koch owns, makes Dixie cups, Brawny paper towels and Quilted Northern bath tissue.
No wonder I can't afford TP.
Yeah I think it's time to rise up and take back our country and I'm not talking about the 1890's either.
