Senator Demands Investigation of Latest Koch Brothers Donation
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 6 June 2014 | John Semmens

Posted on 06/09/2014 8:48:51 AM PDT by John Semmens

News that the billionaire Koch brothers have donated $25 million to the United Negro College Fund spurred Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev) to demand an investigation.

"In the midst of a raft of phony scandals the GOP has been trying to cook up on the IRS, Benghazi, and now the terrorists traded for a POW, we see that the two most dangerous men in America are extending their tentacles into yet another sector of society," Reid complained. "I, for one, find this latest development frightening. What sinister plan are they trying to implement?"

Reid contrasted "the very live threat represented by the Koch brothers" with what he characterized as "the dead issue of Benghazi where we see the House Republicans ginning up a completely unnecessary rehash of the events on a night long past. The people who died on that night can't be revived, but the people who's minds will be polluted under the guise of so-called philanthropy by the Kochs can still be saved."

The Senator expressed some frustration with "the lack of support from my colleagues in the Senate" and some envy of President Obama "who can with the stroke of a pen order whatever he wants done to be done."

"You'd think the IRS or the NSA would've already been all over the Kochs," Reid speculated. "With all the data they've been gathering the NSA must by now have come across some errant comment or unseemly behavior by one of these guys. And even if there's nothing concrete the threat of an IRS audit alone could've been used to bring these two into line."

The further out you go with your preposterous satires the more plausible they become!

Well, I notice that it is “semi-satire,” but it very well could be true.

Funny how the closer satire cuts closer to home. The funny it gets.

Even though it is satirical in content, nothing hairy does would surprise me, so if it’s announced that some sort of investigation were to be mounted, it’d be no shock. I think he has a man crush on the brothers.

“Stop posting this semi-satire crap.”

I’m with you——I find it extremely annoying.

It’s all part of their dastardly plan to educate negroes.

African - Americans had better educational opportunities under Jim Crow and had better learning skills than they currently have in the Democrat run urban indoctrination centers that our public school systems have become.

Of the 40% that don't drop out of school and actually graduate, more than half have math and reading skills at the 4th grade level.

If it's not clear... it is true. At least the first part:

And leftists are outraged:

Why? What about free speech do you not subscribe? It is clearly labeled and probably most on this forum greatly enjoy John's semi-satire.

When you and SHoople begin complaining about all the continually annying and unwelcome posts from that fake "news" site examinerdotcom I will devote more credibility to your personal 'annoying' opinions.

Meanwhile, for those of us who enjoy this kind of satire, especially considering who it is aimed at, feel free to simply not read the posts from this source.

It is quite simple: do as I do and look at the source posted. As soon as I see more wasted bandwidth posted from the examinerdotcom website, no matter who the FReeper is, I don't bother clicking on it. You should try it sometime. Simply look for the "Semi-News/Semi-Satire" source in the index posting.

Indeed, I insist.

Why don't you stop posting your non-satirical cr*p and waste your time in some other fashion so those of us who find this sort of satire amusing can rest assured that you are no longer being bothered by reading something you most assuredly not being forced to read.

I usually enter a thread from “Latest Posts” and Semi- news/Semi-satire doesn’t show until I’ve clicked on it.

If “semi satire” showed in the header I wouldn’t click on it. The header by itself,without the qualifier, is misleading.

I have no idea what examinerdotcom is.

Then simply closing the window after clicking on it shows the source will quite easily solve your problem(s). No need to keep on reading.

I personally find all the prayers proverbs and religious posts a complete waste of bandwidth, along with a long-gone radio programmes fanboiz continual posting here (hey, it's been like two years since they got canned! Take a hint, already!), but JimRob seems to tolerate it so I don't bother clicking on them.

Try FReeping from the "Latest Articles" so you don't click on anything you do not wish to make any constructive comments towards.

Since it is a libtard like Dingy Harry; who is to say whether it is satire or truth? Thanks to people like him it is getting quite a bit harder to tell the difference.

It might be satire, but nothing is surprising coming from that RAT nut Reid.

While we're at it, should we make him stop forcing you to read it?
