The video above is from the Washington Post titled “Here’s How You
SupportPersonally Benefit from the Koch Brothers,” with a little editing of the title and one segment of the video below, to reflect the fact that voluntary market exchanges are “win-win” or “positive-sum” outcomes, meaning that they benefit both the buyer and the seller:
And whether or not you agree with the Koch Brothers, youve probably
contributed to their fortunegreatly benefited personally from the products and services they provide. Ever use Brawny paper towels? Theyre made by Georgia Pacific, a Koch company. Another Georgia Pacific product – Angel Soft toilet paper. Do you drive a car? Well, a Koch company operates 4,000 miles of fuel pipelines, and according to Forbes, has enough refinery capacity to supply 5% of U.S. daily fuel demand. Wear anything made of Lycra? The Spandex brand is Koch-owned. Stainmaster the carpet company? Yep, Koch-owned. Own an iPhone? A little connector ribbon inside is made by a company called Molex. Who owns Molex? A company called Koch Industries. And do you like fruit? Well, Koch Ag and Energy Solutions sells a lot of fertilizer to the farmers who grow it for you. We should all be grateful to the Koch Brothers and their companies for providing consumer products that make our lives better off and help raise our standard of living.

It’s nearly impossible to tell who owns what these days. I’m sure a few of my dollars unwittingly support ‘Rat enterprises.
Heck, my TAX DOLLARS support abortions! Grrrr!
Anyhow, the best you can do is shop locally as much as you can. I was chuckling at a knucklehead in Farm & Fleet last week, whining about not being able to find rope that wasn’t made by ‘Those EVIL Koch Brothers.’ *SMIRK*

More documentation of the deeper slide into partisan shilling by the Washington Compost since the leftist moron Jeff Bezos took over.

Where do they stand on amnesty for illegal aliens? I have noted that many business owners are sadly on the opposite side of this issue from FReepers.
