    Let me see, to quote the article

    The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) on Tuesday filed a complaint with the IRS, asking the agency to investigate a Koch Brothers-linked dark money giant.

    I can "file a complaint" with the IRS against you, that does not mean that what I say in my complaint will turn out to be upheld. So as many ask you about to many of your posts......what's your point?

    Remember the IRS scandal (probably not, fell from view pretty quickly), it is highly unlikely that the Koch Brothers were not already given quite an accounting

    yes, but backing liberal causes is ok.
    I mean even the IRS said so as they approved numerous tax exemptions for liberal groups while holding up conservatives groups. To the point that it may have seriously helped Barry win last year.

    Hey, if it wasnt for Ross Perot, we never would have had Billy

    It is well known and well documented that the Koch Brothers manipulate politics and politicians. They are not the only ones either.

    The time has long ago passed where people with large amounts of money must be prevented from influencing the government. That is not "of the people, by the people", it is "of the rich, for the rich".

    And they could care less about us.

    End lobbying then the problem goes away.
    of course
    why kill the Golden Goose.
    When you have unvirtuous politicians elected by an unvirtuous society, this is what you get.

    You said it for me, thank you very much.

    But the Chinese Government lobbying? I doubt that.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


    There are more than enough obscenely wealthy individuals, and corporations manipulating US, and even world politics with their money, to suit their own agendas. And they do not care who or what they destroy to get what they want.

    Dupont.

    Monsanto.

    Exxon Mobil Corp

    Philip Morris

    AT&T

    Sprint Corp

    Ford Motor Co

    Abbott Laboratories

    American Bankers Association

    Pfizer Inc

    Bristol-Myers Squibb

    Merrill Lynch

    Prudential Insurance

    . . . . . . . . to name a few.

    As a result they are eroding the middle class. And the gap between them and the poor is growing.

    Which side will you wind up on?

    How about your children?

    Your grandchildren?


    Unless we do something to end this madness, things will get much worse.

    I'll use one the widely used websites on here that CCX and Mags likes to quote from.. Of course nothing was ever done about it.. It was buried until the current "wikileak" surfaced again.. Ever wonder why they want this dude back from Russia? And mysteriously the Chinese Ambassador was rushed back to China after this made news... Oh yeah, China is very interested in us...
    www.en.wikipedia.com/wiki/1996_United_States_campaign_finance_controversy

    China is "always" interested in what we do sir.... We control their economy.....

    want to bet

    many individuals have enriched themselves by doing "favors" for the Chinese. Remember Billy C taking a little Chinese money to secure his second term

    Get rid of the US Tax Code, you end most lobbying....

    China lobbies DC at least as much as any other entity. John Huang, Charlie Tre, and Maria Hsaugh, or however you spell her name (her Dad was the head of the Red Army) all came to mind....
