I thought the Koch brothers were related to the late former NYC Mayor, Ed Koch.

But they aren't. And their name is pronounced like COKE, not KOTCH.

When I began seeing their name pop up in lliberal thread and posts I started spending more time watching MSNBC and then it became clear.

They are the scapegoats, Boogey-Men, whipping boys of the loony left.

No one else much spends much time on them.

How can you use such poor grammar in public?

Supreme Court denies RNC bid to end voter fraud consent decree - Los Angeles Times


this is a SCOTUS decision for just a year ago.


your party cheats

Do you actually read your own links? Here is a snippet: The case began in 1981 when the RNC created a “national ballot security task force” that, among other things, undertook mailing campaigns targeted at black and Latino neighborhoods in New Jersey. If mailers were returned undelivered, party activists put those voters on a list to be challenged if they showed up to cast a ballot. In addition, the party was alleged to have hired off-duty law enforcement officers to “patrol” minority neighborhoods on election day.

The DNC sued the RNC in federal court, alleging its activities violated the Voting Rights Act and were intended to suppress voting among minorities. Rather than fight the charges in a trial, the RNC agreed to a consent decree promising to “refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities … directed toward [election] districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic minority populations.”


So tell me how making sure that a person is the person they say they are is cheating. The court did rule in a consent decree and the Republicans stopped. But there is nothing in your article that indicates they cheated.

You are replying to someone with a lower than room temperature IQ..She probably lives in her mommie's house. Complete with Hello Kitty curtains and Justin Bieber posters.

The liberal mindset is liberal billionaires good conservative billionaires bad. It really is that simple.

When you can name a single Republican billionaire pouring money into the political system for the overall good of America rather than just personal gain I might believe it is more complicated than that. Otherwise, yes, it is just that simple.

This is about Soros. What does he do that is different from contributors to conservative issues and causes?

DNC v. RNC Consent Decree | Brennan Center for Justice


DNC v. RNC Consent Decree
April 1, 2009|Voting Rights & Elections,Restricting the Vote



In 1982, after caging in predominantly African-American and Latino neighborhoods, the Republican National Committee and New Jersey Republican State Committee entered into a consent decree with their Democratic party counterparts. Under that decree and its 1987 successor, the Republican party organizations agreed to allow a federal court to review proposed “ballot security” programs, including any proposed voter caging.

The consent decree has been invoked several times, by the parties to the decree and by others. Most recently, in late 2008, the Democratic National Committee and Obama for America sought to enforce the consent decree, claiming that the Republican National Committee had not submitted alleged ballot security operations for review. After the election, the Republican National Committee asked the federal court to vacate or substantially modify the decree. The court denied the RNC's motion to vacate the consent decree and ordered the decree remain in effect until December 2017. The RNC then appealed to the Third Circuit, which unanimously rejected the appeal and affirmed the District Court's decision. The RNC subsequently petitioned for rehearing en banc.

This is about Soros. What does he do that is different from contributors to conservative issues and causes?

Forbes magazine published an extensive article about George Soros and his activities. .... He promotes a gross Anti-American hypocrisy, ..he does however champion selected human-rights issues but only when when they are advantageous to his totalitarian agenda .. In his book The Age of Fallibility, Soros writes: the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States

In 2006, Soros met with Obama in New York . A few weeks later Obama announced that he was contemplating a run for the Presidency. Within hours of the Obama announcement Soros sent the maximum contribution allowable under campaign-finance laws. The NY Daily News followed with a story that Soros would support Obama rather than Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

Hillarys fate was sealed at this point , she could beat Obama - a man without a resume seeking the highest office in the land, but she couldn't beat his puppet master. Obamas ideology was wholly aligned with those of Soros, and the Soros doctrine reigns supreme in the Obama regime.....

You are going to completely trash our entire court system to protect your partys cheating?

What proof do you have that YOU are not lying?

You have lies


I have court documents that go all the way to the SCOTUS

You have court cases that are not related to the issue at hand.
That is George Soros and his buying of the democrat party and buying elections of democrat candidates

The Koch brothers both spend more than the number listed. CATO alone costs more.

They spend money on everything from paying Universities to teach their brand of economics to think tanks to direct contributions to political campaigns to indirect contributions to political campaigns to climate change denial groups and more.

The Koch brothers have been far more successful by changing the dialogue through think tanks than with their direct contributions to politicians.

Then it should be real easy for you to post links to support your claims.

Grabbed some random items from the "Issues" section of Americans for Prosperity website, the Koch Brothers front group. Going through page after page the "issues" reads more like a portfolio wish list than a philosophy.

Americans for Prosperity
  • Against minimum wage hike. Does not say if they think there sould be any mimumim wage.
  • For farm bill.
  • Believes Ryan-Murry 2014 Spending Budget does not cut enough spending and is against it.
  • Against passenger rail.
  • End Community Development Block Grants.
  • End government investment in technology
  • End flood insurance subsidies for an additional year.
  • Supports Public-private partnerships such as letting a private company fix a road and then put up a toll booth.
  • Believes ethanol industry is bad for the environment.
  • Against extending federal wind subsidies.
  • Against requiring refiners to blend biofuel in gasoline.
  • Against extending the unemployment benefits.
  • For school choice.

So what's wrong with this stuff?
Passenger rail is a money laundering scheme to funnel public dollars to private sector labor unions. Rail is inefficient. Why the hell would anyone want to spend 10 to 30 million dollars per mile of track on a system that will take 50 years to complete....And that's just the nonsense ion California..
The minimum wage has got to go. It is a terrible burden on small business. I agree with a standard wage in mid and large sized firms. Those with more than 50 full time or 100 part time workers.
I do not think the taxpayers should be funding farmers to NOT grow crops. Unfortunately, farm subsidies are now sacrosanct. No politician in the midwest can get elected without supporting farm subsidies.
Technology( a very broad term) should be left to the private sector. Too often, government wastes billions of dollars on pie in the sky ideas that go nowhere because they are simply not viable. No business no matter how much the federal grant is going to commit resources to something that government has dumped in their laps, if they believe there is no return on investment. One such example, solar and wind energy. many such firms which took federal dollars have since gone out of business.
Why should taxpayers be saddled with subsidizing the poor choices of those who decided to build in high risk zones? Is somebody's beach house MY problem? I don't think so.
The issue of tolling certain roads is not accurate. Many states are considering turning over operation of their toll roads to private interests. The idea is to save operating costs born by taxpayers. Great idea!
Ethanol is DEAD....Even this administration has finally considered ending the 10% ethanol mandate. Ethanol is harmful to internal combustion engines, offers lesser fuel efficiency and does not burn clean rendering a reduction in engine performance.
Blending bio fuels into other than diesel fuel has not been proven useful. Bio fuels are very expensive to produce.
How many extensions of unemployment benefits should be granted? Here were are 6 years after the recession began and people are still getting "emergency" benefits. Enough is enough. The extension is merely a political ploy by democrats to buy votes.
Somebody other than a unionized teacher want to tell me what is wrong with a parent choosing the best educational opportunity possible for their child?
We have public school choice now....It's called a Charter School....Which teacher's unions are battling...and losing....

The left complaining about the Koch brothers, but ignoring Soros is understandable. Just remember, these are the same lunatics who think a black person is black only if they are a radical leftist Democrat, a woman is a woman only if she is a radical leftist Democrat, a Latino is a Latino only if they are a radical leftist Democrat. These people have a profound mental disorder, but this is what you're dealing with.

I miss worded that question....I meant to challenge in order to evoke a response that would only go to show the hypocrisy of those on the left who unconditionally support Soros.

Soros pays for smear campaigns against Republicans. I suppose that's what libturds mean by "pro democracy." The additional voters being registered are dead people, illegal aliens and cartoon characters.
