GOP senses that the gig is up. They are not going to hold on to power much longer so reallocation time is now. If successful they will be rewarded handsomely come what may.

What would it be like if only voters had some representation and didn't have to pretend that Koch interests were their own? Would employment be more like a career and less like a temp gig?

Next comes the big infrastructure sell off. Time to obsess about attacking each other over LGBT bathroom use guns and what else?

Who cares what the Koch brothers say. They are greedy assholes who are doing everything they can to prevent clean energy becoming mainstream, just so they can profit off of fossil fuels.
Fuck them.

anonymous, self revelation is my least favorite use of patrick.net.

Go ahead though and feel free to disclose your whole situation to this audience, or any portion you feel good about. You might select a name and an avatar you like.

Ask other people how self disclosure worked for them.

Alt-Left was created by Trump on August 15 defending white supremacists in Charlottesville: it appears the alt left makes their living by lying to vast audiences of highly impressionable white people. I'll let you know if I find out any updated information on the alt left, best obtained through the horse's mouth.

Oil and gas conglomerate Koch Industries and its subsidiaries have received at least $422,796,782 in local, state and federal subsidies beginning in 2007, according to research by the Checks and Balances Project using the subsidy tracker built by Good Jobs First. The actual figure is probably even higher: Of the 231 government subsidies to Koch companies Good Jobs First found after 2006, 49, or 20 percent, had an “undisclosed” dollar value.


That's just the actual subsidies. Which is nothing compared to the amount of money in tax breaks and regulations that hinder competition. The koch bros, and the entire ultra rich libertarian clan, want less government for everyone else not themselves.

The libertarian cabal has spent god only knows how much money since the 1970's spreading their propaganda. Very, very successfully. One only has to look at the dogmatic ideological totally divorced from any type of reality postings on patnet every day to see how really successful it is. The libertarians have created an army of people slavishly devoting their time (for free) promoting policies making themselves poorer while making the ultra rich richer. Pretty amazing.

If the Kochs aren't FREE! to buy the government of their own choice, could FREE!dom have any meaning?

Just list occupation, such as "Registered Nurse" or "Bartender" or "Construction." That does not reveal anything personal.

Now, lets roll out some more of those one time bonus checks for 1K or 2K


Those 1K or 2K bonus checks end up being 2% to 4% of the average workers 50K salary, so their actually getting a better deal than the Kochs.

Alt-Left was created to describe the mobs burning and looting and smashing windows throughout Berkeley, DC, etc. They especially hate trash cans.

Those 1K or 2K bonus checks end up being roughly 50% of face value after taxes are taken out, are one time only and people taking in 50K a year are so far behind the 8 ball 99& of them will never catch up, let alone try to save any meaningful amount of money.


Yes but who cares when housing and health care are all but FREE! because of the PERFECTION! of the FREE! MARKET!

I'm so HARD! I can barely move my amsewopwpoqpp, hhhth44thhhg, utttgxh!

Yep, as long as there is some group of people in the world that aren't getting screwed so bad they can't afford shit, capitalism will keep working for our capitalists, but not for us because we didn't stand up for ourselves, we took the easy route by believing the bullshit propaganda they blast 24/7 to neutralize, divide us, us and make us feel powerless.

That is the ace up the sleeve of the oligarchs this time down the rabbit hole, that and the surveillance/enforcement state they got working for them and not us.

Yep, and the alt right morons of 4chan and Breitbart etc spreading their shit all over the web. There is fire there but never warmth; appetite but never food. If conviviality has an opposite, it is this: anti-vivial, anti-genial and, in its treatment of the future, anti-generative.

Alt right bullyboy mentality detests the sensibility of liberalism, and torments SJWs. BECAUSE THEY THINK there should be no regulations to protect the weak, and they loathe the vulnerable: the British journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart’s star writer, encouraged the racist and sexist abuse of American actress Leslie Jones on Twitter, mocked her, saying: ‘If at first you don’t succeed … play the victim.’ This attitude is proto-fascistic --despise the victim for being vulnerable, use that weakness as a reason to treat them with contempt.

Similarly, naive Libertarians scorn individual or cultural sensitivity by using "Snowflake" to describe people who might ‘melt’ in shit storm hate-speech or who want "trigger alerts" to be issued over material that might traumatise survivors of sexual abuse.
