Government Shutdown: Blame it on Koch Bros of 740 Park & 74260 Desert Rose...
Two men from Kansas who took control of the state governments of Ohio and Wisconsin now plan to shut down the US government, through their bought and paid-for US Representatives in Congress, who also represent states other than Kansas. The idea is to overthrow the US government. To do these things, they are using Congressmen elected by Koch's suckers in the Tea Party. Those voters are little people, wannabes fooled by the Tea Party into voting against their own self-interest in favor of the billionaires.
Bring It To Koch Bros at 740 Park Ave & 74260 Desert Rose Ln
THE ELUSIVE KOCH BROTHERS
---A California student tried to meet with Charles Koch, owner of Koch Industries and the radical Tea Party, at Koch Industries in Wichita to discuss Koch's enmity for green causes. Charlie wasn't in a conversational mood and the student was told to stay on public
---Two thousand protesters tried to petition Chuck at his conservative confab at a desert resort in Rancho Mirage, CA, but police in riot gear kept most across the street. Those who crossed were arrested. http://www.kesq.com/news/26669952/detail.html
---Brother Dave, who with brother Chuck comprises "America's 4th Richest" on the odious Forbes list, at about $42 billion dollars evenly divided between them, after they cut two other brothers out of the company (increasing with gasoline prices), was caught looking back at the protesters (in photo with wife Julia) at the resort. http://witsendnj.blogspot.com/2011/02/something-wicked-this-way-comes.html
Ironically these hicks from Kansas can be legally protested very easily at any time. You see, "We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto."
The Wizard(s) of Oz are too good for flyover country. David is the richest or second richest man in New York and he runs the Tea Party, which he founded, just like his old man, Fred C., helped found the John Birch Society. Dave once ran for president on the Libertarian ticket. He's something of an roue, having bragged ever since his days in the Kansas Air National Guard about a physical attribute having to do with his surname. (Locker room companions say he is right.) His name was found in the "little black book" of Jeffrey Epstein, a Florida and New York billionaire convicted of procuring underage prostitutes for the rich and famous. http://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/news/jeffrey-epstein-address-book-holy-grail-of-famous-1315130.html
Charlie is the president of Koch Industries and head of most of the front groups (research institutes and political foundations) controlled by the family.
Dave is ensconsed in the New York City building, "740 Park," where the Masters of the Universe live (photo), a two-level (fourth and fifth floor) apartment at the corner of Park Ave. and 71st St.; and Charlie lives in a gated compound on the grounds of The Vintage golf course in Indian Wells, CA, on a cul-de-sac at the end of Desert Rose Lane.
Peaceful street protests are still allowed in this country. The Koches' takeover is not complete.
