  •  Revealed: Koch Brothers agenda is eminent domain (18+ / 0-)

    seizure of your property rights so they can make more money.

    The real conspiracy that turned ranchers against Keystone XL was the conspiracy of the oilmen and the politicians to run roughshod over the property rights of Nebraska ranchers.

    One of the biggest jokes told on the news is that the Koch Brothers are libertarians. Libertarians who believe that the government can compel taking of your land & carve up your property so the Koch Bros can transport dangerous materials across your property.

    And then there's fracking and the rape of private property rights...

    There are real conspiracies to take your property rights involving the Republican party. Chasing imaginary black helicopters is a diversion.

      Is the real threat of the three T's (environmental, wage/worker rights, expression/information/privacy/internet rights) too abstract, too nebulous (compared to the dirt under your feet) for our fellow country(wo)men to glom onto?  Or do we speak of the dangers in a language, a style and a frame, that does not connect sufficiently enough to our sisters & brothers?

      The only reason the 1% are rich is because the 99% agree they are.
