"So, the corporate whores have succeeded in “taking their country” back and now corporate lobbyists and apologists are set to take committee chairmanshipsto help screw over the American middle-class in the next two years. This situation would not have occurred without the so-called grassroots “Tea Party” which were actually bankrolled by the Koch Brothers (who are sons of Fred Koch, one of the charter members of the John Birch Society).
The Koch Brothers are two “self made” wealthy industrialists who owe their immense wealth due partly to lucking out in the genetic lottery, but also to billions of dollars in government subsidies they receive for their oil and gas, lumber, energy, and other resource-dependent companies that could not survive in a “true” free market without such support.
Yes, that’s right, the same folks behind the virulent “limited government” and “cut entitlement spending” screeds this past election cycle, wholly survive by sucking away at the government’s teat to ensure their wealth at the expense of economic security for the rest of us.
Well, although the election has passed and the results that the Kochs were putting the money down have materialized, we can still choose to vote with our dollars.
This past August, a list of Koch Brothers products was posted on DailyKos. The following is a reprint of that list, with a simple suggestion that when you’re at the store and you’re about to purchase one of these products, just take a moment and instead buy a similar product that is just to the side.
It is really very easy to boycott Koch Bros products, it only takes a few seconds during your routine shopping trip. Just because they gobble up our tax dollars in their huge maw doesn’t mean they need to take our discretionary dollars as well. “The power of the marketplace”- isn’t it a fun thing?"
