CLEANUP ON AISLE 4...Have you READ the piece Rand Paul wrote for Time on the Koch Boys? HAVE YOU???



Idea men

Charles and David Koch are well known for their business success, their generous philanthropic efforts and for their focus on innovation in management. Some also know them for their activism in the political realm. All of these are important contributions to society. What is underappreciated is their passion for freedom and their commitment to ideas. Unlike many crony capitalists who troll the halls of Congress looking for favors, the Kochs have consistently lobbied against special-interest politics.

For decades they have funded institutes that promote ideas, not politics, such as Cato and the Mercatus Center. They have always stood for freedom, equality and opportunity. Consistent with their love of liberty, they have become prominent advocates for criminal-justice reform. The Koch brothers’ investment in freedom-loving think tanks will carry on for generations, reminding all of us that ideas and convictions ultimately trump all else.

Paul is a U.S. Senator and a 2016 presidential candidate

1. We deserve it, we are not doing anything about it, we deserve it.

3. I'm surprised there's no photo of him kissing a ring or kneeling at their feet.

It's obvious he's sucking up for donations. Why not take it all the way?

4. Not Bright

 

Each new tidbit of Rand Paul information just reinforces my impression that he's not very bright.

6. Yep!

He's not very astute on what's going on in the country — those two plutocrats are not liked at all by a large swath of the electorate who see their funding of extreme right candidates and organizations as attempts to buy elections.

Good move, ayn Rand Paul , keep it up.
