The Koch Brothers and George Soros: No Difference/Same Thing

53 posts in this topic

Ideologies are obviously 180 degrees apart, but, is there any difference between the roles each side plays in the American Politic fabric. Koch is essentially running the same playbook that Soros does: align with so-called non-profits, and fund and fuel your agenda.

 

There is no difference.

Keep your filth to yourself. Soros is a billionaire who cares about the middle class. The Coke brothers are billionaires who care about the ruling class. Hence the union busting, and tax breaks for the rich.

Koch Trust fund babies versus Soros.

 

Trust fund babies like the Koch brothers want to be protected behind security guards and gates rather then meet any real people. So, they hire stooges to suck the toe jam out between their toes. and obviously there a lot of people willing to suck.

 

 

"Soros immigrated to England in 1947 and, as an impoverished student, lived with his uncle, an Orthodox Jew. His uncle paid his living expenses while he attended the London School of Economics, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Philosophy in 1952.[22] While a student of the philosopher Karl Popper, Soros worked as a railway porter and as a waiter. A University tutor requested aid for Soros, and he received £40 from a Religious Society of Friends (Quaker) charity.[23] He eventually secured an entry-level position with London merchant bank Singer & Friedlander. He has a cousin from that family era, Caron Enlander (née Weiss) in New York."

 

 

Now, I agree with you to the extent that democracy is undermined by big money.

 

However, when the government protected media corporations make billions of dollars from election advertising and coverage but, also depend on billions of dollars from their customers, Exxon/Mobil, Aetna, .... The people are screwed.

Ok. Looks like some libs are blinded by their own fury that it clouds their logic and ability to read. The first part of my post states, "ideologies aside..." nor does my post ask for differences in how the acquired their wealth, nor does the post defend or postulate which one cares more for an economic class. The point of the post is that Koch plays the same role or resource for Conservatives that Soros plays for Liberals.

Koch Industries employs 80,000 people and makes a wide range of industrial products. Soros got rich on currency speculation and sinking the Bank Of England. IOW, he got rich in precisely the kind of way that liberals most loathe. Their hypocrisy is noted.

You heralded "No difference" in your thread title. Then, you want limit the facts upon which you draw your conclusion and deprive anyone else of comment.

 

I do not want to limit competiton of individuals by allowing some, by virtue of birth, to crush the aspirations of others.

Libbies don't like having their own tactics used against them. It sends them into a frothing, gibbering an tittering rage as they become totally unhinged.

 

Just a friendly note.

 

Maybe you might want to reconsider using words like "unhinged".

The spelling is correct and the usage is apt. Of course, calling the barely sane, on the best of days, Libbies, unhinged does tend to make them go completely batty as they bray wildly at the moon.:P:D

Drug dealers employ more then that.

 

And they were not born with Koch Brother silver spoons.

 

Does the amount of people employed produce some counterpoint?

"Unhinged" is totally appropriate when addressing Liberal Insanity:

 

THE LIBERAL MIND:

 

The Psychological Causes of

Political Madness

 

By Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D.

 

http://www.libertymind.com/

 

 

 

 

The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness is a book written by Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D. The book explains why liberals think and act the way they do.

  • The degree of modern liberalism’s irrationality far exceeds any misunderstanding that can be attributed to faulty fact gathering or logical error. Indeed, under careful scrutiny, liberalism’s distortions of the normal ability to reason can only be understood as the product of psychopathology

  • ...the adult drive toward omnipotent control of others, in any arena whatever, is rooted in fears of separation, abandonment loss or abuse--the residual effects of early attachment gone wrong

About the Author

 

Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D. received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago. He is board certified in both general and forensic psychiatry and has diagnosed and treated mental disorders for more than forty years. He has been retained by numerous public offices, courts, and private attorneys as a forensic psychiatrist and has consulted in more than 2700 civil and criminal cases in both state and federal jurisdictions.

If you guys spent half the time worrying about Goldman Sachs as you do George Soros your points on Soros might be easier to swallow.

 

It is interesting to note those on the left spend more time worrying about the Koch brothers.

This is correct. It is amazing to see the outrage on the left because there are those on the right doing the very same things they are. Total hypocrisy.

It's posts like this that will keep most here from taking you seriously. You actually type it like you really believe it.

I've never heard of them. But Soros is a sideshow in comparison to the effect Goldman Sachs has had on the average American.

The fact that the Koch brothers are a topic here on this chat board is a testament to how much attention they have gotten from the left.

 

I agree with your statement on Goldman Sachs.

So, gainfully employing 80,000 people and making a wide array of useful products is to be derided? How much in taxes do you think this company and its employees pour into the treasury each year? Perhaps, you'd rather have them on unemployment and complaining that they aren't getting sufficient handouts. Oh, and all those products could be made elsewhere. Sounds great.:rolleyes:

Goldman Sachs can have such an effect because of... wait for it... a big and powerful central government.:)

I would think twice about the term "handouts" since that's what the Koch brothers received at birth.

 

If all they did with their handout was continue to enrich themselves. No problerm.

 

But, they are born into a system that allows their Unearned Money to have a greater effect in influencing government then those who are born with not much and earn their money through hard work.

 

An oligarchy is not the democracy that we were taught the US represented.
