The Koch Brothers are attacking democracy and voter rights all across the United States. The brothers are worth about $25 billion each. They are arch right wingers that have bought the corporate wing of the Supreme Court. Below is a film by Brave New Foundation about how the Koch’s are attacking the American system of democracy. Basically, to the Koch Brothers, if you’re not rich, you’re not a worthy American, especially if you vote against what they want you to vote for.

Watch the video below. During the riot to grab two dollar waffle irons, watch the blonde woman in the blue shirt bending over with her back to you. As she does this, her pants gradually begin to fall off her ass. She grabs a waffle iron and walks away with her prized possession with her ass overly exposed. The 1 percent has great hopes for her. I hope the 99 percent don’t need to rely on this person.
At one time, corporations were not people and they still aren’t. But the corporate wing of the supreme court has ruled corporations are people and have all of the rights and none of the responsibilities of people. It’s as if Chief Justice Roberts had walked into a tavern, spied the Exxon Mobil having a drink, sat next to it, plied Exxon with drinks, spoke pretty words to it, seduced it, and then took it home for a night of debauchery. Of course, I only mention this to show the obvious. Corporations are not people, but they are a primary vehicle through which income is redistributed from working people to the rich. Also, it’s more likely Exxon Mobil and other corporations have plied the Koch Brothers/corporate wing of the supreme court with tons on favors. Naturally, the corrupt corporate wing of the supreme court led by Justice Roberts recognized that giving these “engines of income and wealth redistribution” the legal rights of people also gave them more power to redistribute income and wealth from the 99 percent to the 1 percent. That’s why the supreme court has decided corporations are people. Click the link below to see the story of how corporations became people.
Senator Ron Wyden, who has a long history of siding with Wall Street over Main Street, plans to filibuster Protect IP Act.
The Protect IP Act is heavily sponsored by the entertainment industry and the powerful U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobbying group, which sees it as a means to prevent online piracy, which they claim costs jobs. This is a plain lie since the chamber prefers to ship American jobs overseas. They are the most anti-American organization in the US.
On the other hand, companies like Facebook, Google, Apple, Yahoo and AOL say the bill would make it easier for U.S. authorities to crack down on websites accused of pirating movies, television shows and music. The bill would also allow the government and copyright owners to disable credit card processing for sites they claim are engaging or enabling copyright infringement, all without a court hearing.
Normally, Senator Wyden uses his senatorial powers to redistribute income and wealth from working people to the wealthy of Wall Street. This time, however, the battle over this bill is between Wall Street corporations. Wyden has most likely picked the side that gives him the most campaign contributions and other perks.
