    Now if you want to go down the rabbit hole.  Check out who his Granddaddy is.  Eugene Pulliam.  They ran the Indianapolis Star a right wing newspaper.  Dan's Daddy was a Bircher.

    •  I have done hours of research done this (14+ / 0-)

      rabbit hole.

      No one listens.  I believe Veritas and Cerebrus have created a shaddow military based on the companies they have absorbed over the past 5 years.  Quietly, under the radar.

      Veritas just sold Cerebrus to DynCorp, for instance.

      And Citi, Boa, Barclays, and Deutsche banks funded it.

      This is why I fear the backers of Palin.  The real forces listed above, would love to install a narcissistic Stalking Horse that can dog whistle the American Taliban to rid the world of liberals, unions, and social safety nets.

      The heat has been turned up with use of dog whistle phrases and words like Blood Libel and Pogrom.  Good grief!

      The Republican Log Cabin group pushed DADT repeal.

      The volume of Us vs Them (all not belonging to one of the militant God's Army churches) is getting louder.

      And we don't seem to see the real dangers of a potential mobocracy rule which will be free to escalate as states cut back on police budgets.

      These are facts, and the right wing is doing all they can to twist these facts so they end up appearing as CT/looney theories.

      They have exceeded Orwell's wildest expectations.

      Citizens Unite being a prime example.

      If we don't see the waves heading our way, how can we properly create the levies?

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

    •  Koch Bros daddy founding member of the Birchers (7+ / 0-)

      Fred Koch was one of the founding members of the John Birch Society. Probably why the Birchers are such a big part of the Tea Party.

      This is from Wiki but doesn't it sound like what we've been hearing from the Tea Party and the Rightwing media:

      The society says it is anti-totalitarian, particularly anti-socialist and anti-communist. It seeks to limit the powers of government and defends the original intention of the U.S. Constitution, which it sees as based on Christian principles. It opposes collectivism, including wealth redistribution, economic interventionism, socialism, communism, and fascism.

        I know the Red Scare was optimized by the CEOs and purveyors of the MIC.

        Now it's the Gay Scare, AlQueda/Taliban Scare, the Scarcity Scare, the Jobless Scare, the Foreclosure Scare, and the Devil/Witchcraft Scare.  Heck, there's too many scares to list.

        To me, it's like the wealthy see themselves as "better" and want to keep the rest in the status of "cockroach" so they won't feel too much guilt as they do whatever they feel like doing to cull the masses.  

        In the Uber Wealthys' self-centered, self-righteous hearts and minds, "The end justifies their meanness" (just made that up)

        Ouch.  That hurts!  

        Look how Haiti has been treated like forever!!!!

        •  You know how Fred made his money? (2+ / 0-)

          War on Error, Larsstephens

          Working for Stalin.  He developed an oil refining process that nobody was interested in here so he went to the Soviet Union and made his money selling his wares to those dastardly commies.  The irony, it burns.

            The billionaires are the dreaded zombies.

            We've been looking i the wrong direction.  Cause you would have to have sold your soul to make a $$ with Stalin.

            I understand Standard Oil made their $$ selling their's to Hitler.  Nice.

            No wonder they don't give a crap about people.  They really have nothing to lose.

            Thanks, now I won't over eat.

            Dkos is great for my fitness program.

            snark

            love to you
