the Koch brothers manufacture toilet paper called "Angel Soft"
Edited on Tue Mar-01-11 06:13 AM by Syrinx
This just seems so ironic to me, on so many different levels, that I don't think I can adequately explain it.

They pretend to be Christian conservatives, yet they espouse, and actively promote, the philosophy of the far-right atheist, Ayn Rand.

And they have the nerve to name one of their top products after heavenly creatures, while the utility of their product is to clean your most unclean area.

Maybe I am stretching, but I just think those people are bad people.

13. OH yeah, pass it around
Maybe it will end up on a protest sign somewhere :)

Proudly made by a public sector employee, union member, liberal Massachusetts native...pretty much the GOP's worst nightmare :evilgrin:

5. They're Definitely Not Fundies...
These shitbags could care less about a "higher authority" since they feel with all their money, they are the ultimate authorities. The rest of us are just players on a stage they can manipulate with their wealth and influence. Unlike the DeVoss family (where Erik Prince of Xe fame comes from) who do waive their crosses the Koch's only throw their money at people who can further their wealth...rigging rules for no-bid contracts and union busting.

You are stretching a bit about the names of their products. IRC, they bought Georgia-Pacific that makes the stuff after it was named. I laugh at the "Mardi Gras" toilet paper...when your ass needs to party, I guess. These oxygen thieves are pretty straight up on what they are and what they stand for...and don't need to mask it in fundie dogwhistles...

15. But they use the righteous to do their bidding
Groups of good people can be brought together using religion. This is old news, using these groups for nefarious purposes under the guise of god's will is old news too.

10. K&R-Toilet paper billionaires...how appropriate....
I have never thought they support any actual "cause" except their own...they want to increase their wealth and power, and destroy what remains of the union movement and the political left in the USA...even the current version of the Democratic Party is far too liberal for them.
