He complained that his money wasn't buying the kind of influence he expected.
I suggested perhaps he ought to be more discriminating in his choices of butt-smoochers. Obviously he and his brother David know how to make money with their money, but they seem lacking in the requisite skills for choosing subservient two-faced lying bastards, of the kind usually found inhabiting the inner sanctums and outer fringes of the Republican party.
But Charles' crocodile tears are falling on unfriendly ground, and his complaints on deaf ears, because we've done our 'homework' and we know just how extensive the network of the Koch brothers' think-tanks and lobbying organizations is, and how anxious they are not to advertise the fact that those reach internationally and into spheres of influence far beyond the core industries which provide their sources of wealth. They don't have enough to do, and too much money to do it with, so they'd like to buy the U.S. Government, just for the hell of it. Does anyone recall seeing any "For Sale" sign for that?
