That's the situation in Citrus County, where the Koch Bros.-funded Pacific Legal Foundation ("Rescuing Liberty from Coast to Coast") and the charmingly-named Save Crystal River, a coalition of well-connected owners of waterfront property, have joined in a suit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, demanding that the protection status of the iconic Florida mammal be downgraded.

Rev. Barber said that today’s moral fusion movement in the form of the third reconstruction must be effected not in a right/left manner. He said it is not about Democrat or Republican. It is about a moral principle, the establishment of justice.

"It's the countries where neo-liberalism is most hegemonic and with strong neo-liberal regimes (both in power and lurking on the sidelines to retake power) that have bred the most active denial campaigns—US, UK, Australia and now Canada." (Neoliberalism is an economic philosophy centered on the importance of free markets and broadly opposed to big government interventions.)

Koch High: How The Koch Brothers Are Buying Their Way Into The Minds Of Public School Students Lesson plans and class materials obtained by The Huffington Post make the course's message clear: The minimum wage hurts workers and slows economic growth. Low taxes and less regulation allow people to prosper. Public assistance harms the poor. Government, in short, is the enemy of liberty.

A good example of how the Koch Bros bribe your representatives to sell you down the river.

The Koch Brothers pick their stooges carefully, but they still cannot get quality help.

Mississippi, dependent on federal largess, murders their cash cow today: It gets worse—those same conservatives are eagerly accepting the aid of the Koch brothers in their effort to oust Cochran. Why are the Koch brothers opposed to Cochran? Because he stood in the way of their insurance companies raising flood insurance premiums. So congratulations, Mississippi Republicans, you're helping the Kochs jack up your insurance rates, and punishing the guy who protected you.

This is what happens when Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner and a gang of the world’s richest people meet behind closed doors.

You wonder why the Koch's give money without strings to Liberal institutions until you see that PBS was the recipient of one such grant and the Kochs threatened to pull the plug unless the Public Broadcaster refused to air an unflattering (but truthful) documentary that was made about them.

Koch Charitable Foundation and allied groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, BP, Exxon Mobil, Dow Chemical, and the Searle Freedom Trust.

Why are the Koch brothers opposing solar energy? Because solar energy is taking off. Because the efficiency and durability of photovoltaics have been skyrocketing, in part because we had the wisdom to use some mild incentives to boost an important new industry the way public roads spurred the rise of the automobile.
