Koch Brothers: “Thank God for Obama’s Stimulus Package”

No, of course they didn’t really say that. Rightwing shitwads are notorious for condemning something and benefiting from it at the same time, without admitting or even grasping the irony.

There have already been jillions of news stories about politicians and VIPs blasting the stimulus bill as nothing but “socialism” and “government meddling,” and then taking part in the groundbreaking ceremony for a project that was made possible by that commie stimulus. These stories have already been done to death, and people whose IQs are higher than their shoe sizes are probably tired of hearing the 800th variation on the same story.

On the other hand, the “failed stimulus” inbreds could be told the same fact eight million times and still never comprehend it. So anyway, Choir — today’s sermon is:

The Koch Brothers held one of their numerous fundraising gatherings over the weekend. (Do they ever do anything else?)

About 1,500 protesters, organized by Common Cause, gathered outside the meeting. Law enforcement officers were called to maintain order and protect the VIPs inside. Some of these officers were Riverside County sheriffs, whose jobs had been SAVED by that dreaded stimulus package.

Thanks to the police protection made possible by all that excessive government spending, the Kochtopus and its tentacles could safely rant and rail against that Socialist in the White House and those tax-and-spend Democrats.

I so wish I could get a complete list of who attended. Man they don't even hide they are going. Cantor and a whole bunch of them complete with knee pads.

It's as if we are living in a bad "B", or made-for-TV movie...except, there's no happy ending boys and girls.

All resemblances between Koch and Cthulhu are purely coincidental and erroneous. The latter will destroy everyone equally.

Take note of this line: "There is even a line in the federal tax code, written by Koch lobbyists, specifically benefiting one of Koch Industries’ refineries in Minnesota"

Then go read "Perfectly Legal" by David Cay Johnston. How many of you knew there was a special Tax Board that can make specific change in the Tax Code (so as not to bother congress with the little details)? If I wanted to get out of paying taxes and I had the money to hire the high priced lawyers to write it and argue it, and that board agrees, I can now get out of paying taxes and only congress can turn that over. Congress the same people that tell us these people like the Koocks <--- yeah that's about right, need more tax breaks.

Ed Schultz just said Fox on-air "talent" have been told to refer to Obama as a socialist.

What do you want to bet Roger Ailes, maybe Murdoch, too, attended that Koch-suckers confab?

Good for the protesters, BTW. I'm sure the millionaires and billionaires in attendance were spared hearing anything the protesters had to say, but the fact those protesters turned out said something. Which was, not all Americans are sheeple who will stand by quietly while the rich and the corporations buy off and finish off democracy.

Tim: LOL, I hope somebody brought enough kneepads for everybody.

jadedj: Nope, no happy ending and you can't change the channel.

Randal: Equally, well that's a good thing.

Erik: Not surprising. These robber barons pretty much own the government and dictate which laws they want and which regulations they'll put up with. As Molly Ivins wrote a long time ago, bribing Congress (or any government official) is by far the most lucrative investment anyone can make.

SW: I'm sure the Koch-suckers confab included Murdoch and Ailes. You're right, Bravo for the protesters.

Anonymous: So it runs in the family.
