For those of us following developments in Mad-city the Beast Prank is “old” news. But if you’re trying to catch up on all the fuss, I’m doing my tiny part to help out. I think we’ve all got Dictator Scott Walker under our belts by now. Walker’s Koch connection might need a little of that transparency which is the current media byword that seems to have replaced truth, honesty and integrity. Every time I hear the word all I can think of are see-through dresses–huh? Yeah, go figure how my brainpan spills regarding word associations. Enough of my egocentric language allusions.
Let’s start with getting some visuals on the Koch Bros courtesy of Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! headline:
If you’re wandering around capitol square in Mad-city, be sure to pay a visit to the Kochs’ lobbyists’ office there. I’m sure it’s clearly marked for tea party tourists and progressives liberals alike. Shh! Don’t let on if you support Greenpeace environmental actions.
Still scratching your scalp and thinking hard to place these fellows? Koch who? Wanting more info? No problem, Greenpeace has the goods on the environmental blues billionaire brothers.
Desiring something less esoteric than Greenpeace satire? Perhaps the Turks are more to your brainpan’s liking. The Young Turks clarify the Koch agenda via the Kochs’ own letters:
Oh my, where are the teabaggers when Kochs need them? These folks sure are NOT buying what the Kochs are selling. Some coverage of a recent rally to protest secret meeting of Kochs with other big wig movers and shakers, including Clarence Thomas and Antoine Scalia. Yes, those supreme court justices are Koch cozies. OMG–is this what corporate personhood is all about???
In case the Beast link FAILS, you can read a transcript of WI Rep. Gov. Scott Walker’s fun and games with faux Koch at –>
Ian Murphy of Buffalo Beast poses as David Koch and gets more ear respect from Gov. Walker than he gives to the people camped in the capital building. Being a Billionaire has benefits, right? The Beast site is back up and running. You can read and hear yourself Ian Murphy’s prank foreplay and Walker’s shamelessness:
Craving some floor sight human interest news? Views of the occupying force camping at the capital charm:
Another quick kick at the Kochs and their billionaire cronies:
So, now is everyone “good” on the elusive Koch Bros? If you’re not a conservative billionaire Republican or a Supreme Court Justice willing to play corporate personhood ball, they could be a tough click capture for your camera safari on the mean streets of Wichita, Kansas.
BIG picture parting shot. Does your child have a dark side? Mine sure do. I don’t wonder why. I think they’re in cahoots with this kid. –>
