Koch Brothers Exposed


Recommended Posts

 

Koch Brothers Exposed documentary began as a series of 13 two- to twelve-minute viral videos intended to portray David and Charles Koch’s negative impact on a variety of aspects of American life.

The billionaire Koch Brothers have been described as “the poster boys of the 1 percent.” Their conglomerate, Koch Industries, is one of the largest private firms in the nation, with estimated annual revenues in the range of $100 billion. Liberal organizations argue that their extraordinary wealth and overwhelming political influence harm many progressive causes, such as the environment, education, campaign finance, and labor rights.

Some of the alleged wrongdoing highlighted in the film includes:

  • Efforts to gut Social Security. Spending more than $28 million, the Kochs have funded hundreds of reports, commentaries and books which popularized the fiction that Social Security is on the brink of collapse.
  • Attempts at re-segregation. The film reports on Koch-funded efforts to remake a North Carolina school district’s diversity policy, in effect re-segregating the schools.
  • Voter Suppression. Koch money has supported voter ID laws in 38 states. These laws are billed as a way to avoid voter fraud, but the film argues that they are actually intended to make it more difficult for Democrats to vote.
  • Keystone XL. The Kochs use their influence to sway legislation regarding the Keystone XL pipeline. Koch Industries has a significant financial interest in this oil and gas project.
  • Cancer in Crosset. A Koch paper plant pollutes the air and water of a community in Arkansas. The film explores a link with a cancer cluster in the small African-American community.
  • Higher Education. The Kochs give millions of dollars to universities, with the stipulation that the schools must hire Koch-sympathetic professors.

Robert Greenwald attempts to evoke a visceral reaction from his viewers by telling the stories of individuals whose lives have been harmed by Koch activities. Regarding this film, he is quoted as saying, “You reach the heart first. What I always try to do is make the political personal."

They love them in NY.

 

They give millions to charities

 

What the morons don't realize is that they come into contact with a Koch Industries product in their life at LEAST 20 times a day.

 

And Koch employs 10's of thousands of people, gives as much TO society as they garner from it, and if that is wrong, then tough shit for you liberrhoids!!

The charities are a front to pull the wool over peoples eyes = effective on conservatives.

 

No matter how good they look that does NOT give them the right to over throw the government or to make

trillions off of tax dollar supported services. These boys are anti american.

 

Yes grocery stores are full of their products such Great Northern toilet paper,Rubbermaid and more then there is Phillips 66, Conoco,etc etc etc. Boycotting Koch products is easy to do.

 

These boys are looking out for themselves and don't give a shit about most people on this board or republicans or democrats or Tea Party people or small time libertarians AND they spend tons churning out lies about whatever they want to own.

 

Their lying misinformation machines are second to none = there is a sucker born every second. Worshipping the corrupt wealthy is like worshipping corrupt politicians.

 

Several government services and programs are worthless,don't work,are going broke yet they want to own them and all of the tax dollars that support these worthless ventures = obviously these are the best functioning government services available and DO WORK VERY WELL.

 

Not all wealthy people like the Koch brothers and their associates = fact. And some are boycotting their products.

Why are Social Security’s protections irreplaceable?

The best part about Social Security benefits is that, in contrast to savings in a 401(k) or IRA, they never run out (until surviving children become adults). Furthermore, in contrast to a pension, they are fully portable between jobs. And in contrast to both 401(k)s/IRAs and the vast majority of pensions, benefits are protected from erosion by inflation, through the COLA.

So WTF? Every year, dozens of Hells Angels charters participate in local Toy Runs. The money and toys are donated to local Toys for Tots programs, crisis centers and various other places. In 2008, members of the Las Vegas charter donated over $5,000 to Jerry's Kids. Members of the Hells Angels have been arrested for rioting, robbery, drug trafficking, drug making, extortion, weapons charges, attempted murder and successful murder.So when are you having them over for dinner?

 

 

WHERE DID THAT DOPER ZO GO?
