Charles Koch has been caught whining that he and his brother are 'In Front of the Firing Squad'. Wa...wa.  Ah, poor little rich kids. Typical behavior of the playground bullies who get caught and then start to sob. Not out of remorse but because they got caught.
The Kochs have been taking potshots at every American citizen for years. Shooting from behind those bushes like snipers. Making sure they weren't seen as they bought off politicians but vigilantly careful that we all felt their entire impact. Now that they are out in the open and exposed for their dastardly deeds, they resort to whining. Yes, apparently they are now the victims. Say it isn't true. Poor David and Charles. I was thinking of starting a fund for them to help them through these tough times. No, that was just my humor going on a ski trip.
Did they pass out flak jackets for the people who were hit when they fell from middle class to lower class? Did they offer to open up their mansions for homeowners who lost their jobs and homes? What about sticking up for women? How about deciding that we made too much on minimum wage and hiring a few of us to do their lawn work for $2 an hour?  No, well I guess not.
As one of those people who has been run over by the economy, I can tell you that I'm not real sympathetic to the Koch whine. I work part-time because my employer has bought into the new business model of hiring part-time workers to avoid paying benefits. After spending years looking for a better FULL-TIME job, I've had to admit defeat. So I live under the whipping slave master who expects me to appreciate the hours that I get and do those trainings and emails without being paid.
Now that the gruesome twosome are out in the open they don't like it. It was fine while they worked behind the scenes - because pulling those puppet strings was easier than taking the flak they deserve.  Poor little rich kids. It is so hard to live in the real world with real people. I'd like to send a sympathy card but I don't have money for a stamp.

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.
