DU Today: Koch Brothers Are Mean Because They Won’t Just Give People Money

So far, I’ve personally stayed away from most discussion of the Koch Brothers, because it just enables the insane left to come up with more conspiracy theories, but, this one at the Democratic Underground by LynneSin takes the cake: Dear Koch Brothers: You have BILLIONS of dollars! Why keep the rest of us from having some?

Honestly, I can’t even fathom owning BILLIONS of dollars. I mean I get happy feet when I see that I have just a thousand in my bank account and I know for many working families they don’t even see that much.

Maybe you should get a better job and work hard, instead of expecting Someone Else to just give you money. How do you think Charles and David Koch got rich? Or, conversely, you could marry someone rich, like John Kerry.

I mean you could spend a million dollars every single day of your life and you’d STILL never see an end to all of your money. But for many families, every single day they’re checking underneath their sofa cushions and inside their pants pockets just to find a few extra dollars to help pay the bills. And this just isn’t the homeless, the unemployed or welfare cases – this is working families who want to give a good, safe home to their families.

Say, I wonder what several hundred extra dollars not spent on union dues would do?

What I don’t understand is why you begrudges us having healthcare. You realize that no matter what somebody pays for the healthcare whether or not we have a healthcare plan. The difference is this – if our country had a solid, affordable healthcare for every person then the cost of healthcare overall would go down. Why? Because for the poor, they can’t afford to do things like yearly checkups and PCP visits when they are sick so for them their main form of treatment is over-the-counter remedies, expensive emergency room visits and a prayer that it’s not life-threatening or bank-busting.

Based on your belief that ObamaCare will reduce costs, I’d assume that you’ve been taking lots of PCP. Good thing there is this Medicaid program to help poor people out, along with other programs. If you weren’t sitting on your couch saying everyone else should give you money, you’d know that.

Jesus once said ‘It is easier for a camel to go thru the eye of a needle than a wealthy man to reach the kingdom of Heaven’. That quote wasn’t geared towards us working class but for people like you – Charles & David Koch – and any other filthy rich gazillionaire who would try to squash the working class in order to boost your profits. Sure, people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckenberg are billionaires but at least I see them giving money back to the community with massive donations to help make this world a better place. Like you 2, they probably couldn’t spend all their money if they tried but at least they are doing good with it and not just making themselves a fat pig.

Actually, that quote was meant for those who worshiped their money over God. Speaking of God, I find it interesting that LynneSin picks the one translation from Matthew 19:24 that uses the word Heaven instead of God. Yet, the Koch brothers seem to be much more religious than the Progressive left. Oh, and then there’s the $600 million in charitable donations the pair have made over the past decade, much to medical centers, schools, and the arts. Oh, and that they support drug legalization, gay marriage, and reduced military spending. Oops.

But, of course, we have to end with typical liberal civility

So shame on you Charles & David Koch. May your time in Hell be painfully hot and forever eternal and may the faces of the people who you squashed in order to reap in your billions haunt you every single day. I would suggest you read Dante’s “Inferno” for surely there is a hell like that for you.

Funny how lefties suddenly believe in Hell.
