  •  It's also infuriating that the Koch bros put (7+ / 0-)

    their names on Science Centers and Science museums while they push and peddle junk science.  They seek to validate their nonsense and brand science as they see fit.  

    What's more, I think both Koch bros went to MIT, so they should know better, and they should have respect for science; they have none.

    How many billions are enough?  They have 30 billion between them.  Why don't they just enjoy life instead of using their money to manipulate the lives of millions?  Long after the Koch bros pass on, their manipulative and controlling money will continue to harm honest debate and democracy.

    Here's some of the Science Centers bearing their name and making a mockery of science:

    It's infuriating.

    •  one of the Koch bros said a warmer earth meant (2+ / 0-)

      more places to grow food. Stunning stupidity.

      What doesn't make sense is that it's virtually impossible for everyone involved with their operations to be that stump stupid. Some people have to be thinking about their kids and grandkids lives, ...at least. They have to know that the climate crisis isn't like a problem in the neighborhood that their gated communities compounds can solve, and having the money to live anywhere will not ultimately matter.

      I also hope the Koch brothers, and their ilk, are looking long and hard at what's happening in Egypt right now. I hope they dream about it nightly, and I hope those aren't good dreams.

      I remember reading about an engineer who was a Tea Party member.His wife worked at the Creationist Museum.How strange.

      Cynicism leads to Inactivity. Hope leads to Action.

      and the cunning they have been working behind the scenes pulling the strings for this. I  have little doubt that they were influential in having Sarah Pallin (sp.. ooops can't even put those keys together without getting crazed) on the ticket and they certainly are behind the 'making crazy' and 'keep 'em dumb and eager and the its all about kansas shit.

      Frankly, neuroscience is actuallyl finding that the brains of these people have actually altered genetically mutated and have developed the inability to feel empathy.
