  •  Those poor victims the Koch brothers (10+ / 0-)

    How dare the other 310 million of us gang up and them and their billions of dollars?

    To the Koch brothers, free speech means whoever has the most dollars gets to run the country, Democracy be damned.

    On a related note wasn't Bastille Day a few days ago?

      they seem to outnumber us. Even on some of the friendly sites.

      The Koch's will stop at nothing to get their way.

        sure who they are talking to in an anonymous space. And the Kochs do want dissent!

        I'm talking about the fact that people are saying Obama gets free passes for everything on this site when he doesn't. He has been criticized constantly since he was elected.

        But you point this out to them, and they stick their fingers in their ears and are like "lalalala"

          Yet after a bit of practice you can become very sure of the type of people you're dealing with little effort.

          It's the little things, like typing styles. Quotes. Patterns. Always gives those trolls away.

        on Koch Bros. sponsored busses.  

        That's the difference between us and them.  We come because we believe.   While they may believe, they also come because the Kochs like to show off their support among the peasantry.

        Their supporters are old.  And love the free bus rides.

        They just can't conceive why folks like us do what we do, and all without being paid for it.

      They're trying to position themselves as being somehow opposed to media monopoly?  I'm sure that they are well aware of the actual history of media monopoly in the United States over these past three or four decades.  It has been supported by their friends, not ours.  It's all a matter of public record.  This is so stupid, it's insulting.  

      Rooting for Democrats!!!

      but most of the big parties were Friday and Saturday so people could eat drink and be merry without having to worry about work the next day

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
      Drop by The Grieving Room on Monday nights for support in dealing with grief.
