We Got Their Attention

If the goal of our event in Palm Springs was to get the attention of the Kochs, then we surely succeeded. Here’s an image of David Koch and his wife Julia looking out over the rally.

Do these billionaires look happy to see us?

  1. This bores me. Who’s up for a round of Golf?

  2. Maybe they’re thinking “let’s send them back to Sicily.” No, I guess not. That wouldn’t be the Kochs, that would be … Common Cause supporters, who would engage in racist hatred. Wouldn’t it?

  5. Makes me think of Egypt. They are mildly perturbed. They are not moving their funds to a Swiss bank account, yet.

  11. We, the people” need to join our brothers & sisters around the world. We need to celebrate our common ancestry and that we all have the same rights to freedom and the right to pursue happiness! This is the US constitution writ large on the world’s pupils! We have the communications and we now have the power to put into effect “the rights of humans”!
    Let’s say “no” to economic slavery. Why should one man get 100 million a year in pay and bonuses and have five homes while the very poor have no home and eat off the street!
    Let’s stop the monkey need for shiny objects and let’s work on returning the earth to the Eden it once was (but without all those guys in dresses pretending to be “more” human than US!)

      This is amazing! People are really awake and seeing, for what seems like since forever, the true nature of the Wizard behind the curtain. Damn right!

  14. this seems to be one more puzzle to the big question that is at hand.

    who really is in charge here.
    we have monsanto with their control of food
    we have oil companies with their control of energy
    we have bank of america and citigroup and more with control of money
    and somethings up with the federal reserve
    now these guys the kochs brothers
    we have the insurance companies controlling health
    IS THERE ANY ROOM LEFT IN WASHINGTON FOR US? i think that maybe the question.

    all the pieces are coming together its time for Mark Zuckerber to become ironman and do some butt kicking.

    “War children, is just a shot away. Is just a shot away.

    Love children, is just a kiss away. Is just a kiss away.”

    Which way we want to go, people?

  20. @ luis a beltran flores: almost makes you think that those conspiracy theorists who talk about the illumanati, skull and bones, and other groups of that nature might actually know something the rest of us don’t after all. I’m not saying those groups actually exist (except skull and bones at Yale), but it is curious how control of all the things you mentioned is concentratd into so few hands. Just a thought.
