|Fantastic Spy Punking: Governor Walker Talks to Poseur Koch.
||[Feb. 24th, 2011|08:15 am]
I can't think of a better person for this to happen, except maybe every enthusiastic Republican asshole.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker thought he was talking to billionaire David Koch; the following is a fantastic conversation that should be of no surprise to anyone who realizes the road to hell is paved with finely-shredded souls of similar politicians.
If anyone needed proof as to why unions are necessary, well, duh, this kind of bullshit, right here.
Good job, America. The majority voted for countless numbers of these monsters. And all of us will reap the fallow fields they sow. Unless, of course, you wise up for once in your miserable collective existence, and you stop fighting amongst your small selves and band together to tear apart the misguided elite.
From the article:
So there you have it, kids. Government isn’t for the people. It’s for the people with money. You want to be heard? Too fucking bad. You want to collectively bargain? You can’t afford a seat at the table. You may have built that table. But it’s not yours. It belongs to the Kochs and the oligarch class. It’s guarded by Republicans like Walker, and his Democratic counterparts across that ever-narrowing aisle that is corporate rule, so that the ever-widening gap between the haves and the have-nots can swallow all the power in the world. These are known knowns, and now we just know them a little more.
But money isn’t always power. The protesters in Cairo and Madison have taught us this—reminded us of this. They can’t buy a muzzle big enough to silence us all. Share the news. Do not retreat; ReTweet.
The revolution keeps spinning. Try not to get too dizzy.
