    The irony is even greater.... most folks that have any investment whether it be a 401k or some pension, their fortunes are tied to the well being and health of corporations. Yet many sit here day in and day out calling for the utter rape of the "evil empires".

    Hopefully it is just abject ignorance and not outright stupidity. Or, perhaps, they have nothing invested in our economy so the just don't give a shit. Who knows.

    It's outright stupidity. Some people do not want to know the truth, even when confronted with it. They are just fine with their own mythology and will fight to the death to defend it.

    Wait wait wait just minute.

    So you're telling me that all the benefits these folks are getting are coming from the union investing in the Koch brother's industries?

    So these union members need to be thanking and rooting for the success of Koch Industries?

    That is the richest, sweetest of irony!

    The obvious, rationale answer is this:

    The evil corporations should liquidate all assets and just hand them over to the workers. Easy enough, why can't us right wingers realize it???

    Definitely irony.

    I still have no idea why they find the Koch brothers so evil to begin with.

    I just can't comprehend the irony.

    That the unions get more money as the Koch brothers company profits more. Less Koch profits means less money for union members. Yet, union members rip them.

    Kinda like how employees of a private company will harshly hate the boss and CEO......although they make more if the company does well.
