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.

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.

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.

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.

These brothers are hell-bent on opposing any climate legislation. Which brothers? You guessed it – the Koch brothers. Here’s how their organization, Americans for Prosperity, contributed to Governor Christie’s change of heart about the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative:
Americans for “prosperity”? More like “mass destruction”.
THIS COUNTRY NEEDS CLEAN ENERGY..Koch Brothers And ALEC Expand Fight On Clean Energy Users: The right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is in the middle of the state- and local-level clean energy disputes that are currently evolving almost as quickly as the solar and wind technologies themselves.
