  •  This is the thing about the Koch's funding now; (10+ / 0-)

    The Kochs have money, but before they also had the other heads of business, Chamber of Commerce, and Wall Street following their lead because it all seemed like a good idea, and the Kochs we're smart guys. But all those other guys were finally scared shitless at the prospect of what was going on, and tanking the US and world economy. Now the Kochs may be ideologues and don't care, but the rest are interested in only business, and making a profit. And they are NOT going to put up with this shizz again - so the Kochs may very well be on an island alone, with the other business leaders actually fighting against them now. And they may also make a deal with Obama (if they haven't already), because his policies are now a hell of a lot closer to what they want (let's not forget the record corporate profits and Stock Market performance under Obama, which carries weight) than what the Teahadists are all about.

    Businessmen take calculated risks to succeed and make a profit, but as a group they are not interested in taking insane risks for little profit, and risking losing everything if they fail. It's not good business.

    They called Einstein 'crazy', too..... until he started KICKING ASS!!!

      if I were religious, I would say "Praise the Lord and pass the ammuntion." In other words, that would be great, but I'm not sitting back and relaxing.

      There are no sure things anymore. The crazies are on the plane with guns drawn. The other businessmen have to organize a SWAT team and get it on-board before the crazies blow it up.

      I'm all for sane businessmen. I just hope they aren't already too late.

      The CoC and ALEC are going to up their game.

      25 years ago, there were only two handful of people in the world with more than two billion dollars, and outside of Pablo Escobar, I doubt that a single one could have produced $100 million cash at the drop of a hat; it's mostly equity.

      But when you have people worth $40 or $50 billion today, "mostly equity" translates into billions in cash. Or, guys who earn $1 billion or more in income a single calender year can drop $50 million into ALEC like we might spend $1000.

      I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.
