Here's an idea that has occurred to me, in response to the Koch brothers who are involved in many different business activities through Koch Industries. You know who we're talking about: those greedy, selfish filthy rich billionaires who have decided that they want more money and power and will use everything in their power to make the poor poorer, decimate the middle class and, otherwise, try to make the working people of this country virtual slaves to them and their fellow billionaires.

What is this proposal?

To me it is the only reasonable response to corrupt, power hungry egomaniacs like the Koch brothers, people who are so totally, abjectly corrupt that they think there is nothing wrong with simply going around purchasing themselves governors and legislators to do their evil bidding.

What is this modest proposal, you may ask?

It's simple. Now that the Koch brothers and their owned, bought and paid-for, co-conspirators like Wis. Governor Scott Walker have been exposed, the sweetest possible outcome of their actions would be to...unionize Koch Industry employees.

Wouldn't it the be the ultimate pay back if, as a result of the overreaching by these megalomaniacs, who already have more money and power than they could ever want or need, but who want even more and will subjugate American workers in order to get it...for this entire episode to boomerang on them?

Our priorities right now are clear: we first need to prevent this blatant attempt to kill off unions. And then, after having achieved that, our number one priority should be to...immediately start a campaign to get Koch Industry workers to unionize.

Unionization of Koch Industries and all of its various holdings: What better pay back could there ever be?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
