    We do not have to bribe SR to ban Hazlenutless. If that were necessary, I'd happily kick in another $50 to the pot, but I do not believe that this is the case. Just sayin'.

    It seems to me that they've truly given back to the world. For anyone who has had a family member (or themselves) with cancer, the Koch's are doing quite a bit to help. The libs generally complain that Republicans are trying to destroy public funding for the arts. It seems to me that the Kochs are helping quite a bit.

    It shows that generous donations from private benefactors decreases the government's need to tax us to death (and to control us).
    Trying to follow some logic here.

    If "you can't tax corporations, because they will simply pass it on to consumers", then consumers are paying the corporation's taxes. Ergo, if a guy like Koch donates millions to charity to offset his evil, isn't it actually the consumer who is paying the charity?

    So because I buy Brawney paper towels, I am actually the donor. I think somebody should make me a sammich.

    Here are some facts:
    On July 25, 2000, Clinton’s EPA sent a letter to Charles Koch congratulating his company on plans to reduce emissions at the Pine Bend and Corpus Christi refineries. “I appreciate that Koch took the initiative to work with EPA to develop an agreement that would advance the common interests of Koch, EPA, and the general public,” wrote Office of Regulatory Enforcement director Eric V. Schaeffer. “The Koch representatives were outstanding in their cooperation throughout the negotiation process.” None other than Janet Reno said she was “pleased” with the agreement. Koch’s cooperation, said then-EPA administrator Carol Browner (now President Obama’s climate czar), was “unprecedented.”
    More?
    Since Obama’s inauguration, Koch companies have been recognized more than 280 times by local, state, and federal agencies for safety and environmental stewardship. In 2009 Invista voluntarily agreed to a huge settlement with EPA. “Invista is making a clean start in a settlement that achieves significant environmental benefits,” an EPA administrator said at the time.
    Still more?
    In October 2009 the EPA gave its SmartWay Excellence Award to Georgia-Pacific for reducing pollution in the freight industry. In October 2010 Flint Hills Resources agreed to a deal with the federal government over permitting rights at its Texas refinery. “The process we have agreed to with Flint Hills Resources is an excellent one,” said EPA regional administrator Al Armendariz in a press release, “and we look forward to working with the company to complete the work to transition their permits.”

    There is a lot more, but reading facts and researching history is not the principle activity of ideological zealots. Their activity consists of bumper sticker slogans and mass hysteria encouraged by the barking dogs who call themselves The Left. They have to call themselves that because they sure ain't right.

    Only a lunatic like you would call Koch evil.

    So, while I pour myself a jack and coke...

    Thank you QC for your outstanding good sense and math ability. :D

    It's a shame when hatred and bigotry blinds some of the libs from the good work that these people do. I don't see Biden contributing much to charities.

    Liberals will dismiss that with whatever excuse they can find.

    For clarity what I meant was if they gave all their money...made all their charitable donations to Liberal causes and politicians...no one would care who they are.

    No more like the productions costs not the quarterly taxes. It's the purchase of said roll of paper towels that goes towards them paying their taxes...along with their employees.
