I’ve always said that our environment encompasses everything around us.  Now our form of government is under attack by large corporations.  We cannot turn a blind eye to these wealthy, powerful, and influential people who may use there riches, their power, and their influence in an attempt to overthrow our government.

If you are not familiar with the Koch brothers and you’ve never heard of the American Legislative Exchange Council, Citizens United, or other organizations.  Do some research!  Don’t be afraid to talk politics.  In what I would call a very revealing and well written article by Jane Mayer entitled: Covert Operations (The billionaire brothers who are raging a war against Obama) was published in the New Yorker and is indeed a masterpiece.  An excerpt from her article reads:

But Charles Lewis, the founder of the Center for Public Integrity, a nonpartisan watchdog group, said, “The Kochs are on a whole different level. There’s no one else who has spent this much money. The sheer dimension of it is what sets them apart. They have a pattern of lawbreaking, political manipulation, and obfuscation. I’ve been in Washington since Watergate, and I’ve never seen anything like it. They are the Standard Oil of our times.”

There is allot of work ahead and loads of information gathering needed before next week.  The following links have been updated from the 18th of July to Present:
