But if Sorus funded an identical gathering of Hollywood elites along with Pelosi and Reed, that would be an awesome display of free speech.

Mr. Koch’s comment “prosperity is under attack by the current administration and many of our elected officials.” displays the greed and self-absorbed attitudes of all these corporate lice. Most poor and middle-class people in this country are in terrible financial staights, in constant struggle to take care of their families– looking for jobs sold overseas to the lowest bidders for laborers, and all the unfair labor practices that entails– and all Koch and his like worry about is “their” prosperity!!! When the revolution comes to this country, it will make Egypt look tame. And the corpocracy and its minions, like the Supreme Court buddies, will be responsible.

Corporations are taking over the world. We must fight them. The short term corporate profit interest rarely promotes the long term societal interest.

Apparently they are quite happy to have organized labor removed from the restrictions too. Common Cause, another Soros, Open Society Institute funded gang of lefty jack-booted thugs.

I’m glad we live in a country where we can share our views. I’m a classical liberal, and I fully support the first amendment (not to mention the rest of the Constitution). I don’t agree with what the protesters were rallying against, but I support their right to do it. I just wish they were able to defend their view philosophically and ideologically. It always seems to boil down to rich people are evil, and corporations are destroying America. This may well be true, but they are forgetting the all powerful enabler of such atrocities; social structures like governments.
