    The billionaire fanatical right wing brothers Charles and David Koch were the money men behind the Teabagger movement. Some have called for boycotts

    If we actualy made black Friday Black they would have got the message quick fast and in a hurry

    if there's a hell below they all gotta go

    boycott every darn thing.


    but the big question remains

    are we proactive or reactive?

    while they have attacked government benefits that Black taxes pay for that the Black community depends on and that we have not created a safety net to duplicate,
    like medicaid in Texasa
    and welfare in Georgia,
    school closings , and Black children's basic education relegted to a friggin lottery


    what are our rich and wealthy contributing, out of a trillion dollars

    to a fund a national Black political agenda, and action network in defense?

    Know what?

    Boycott every darn thing, what is the big deal we were supposed to do that the day before election day

    if there is hell bellow they all gotta go!

    I never understood why we think we can fight something with oen hand?

    Strategic voting is the right hand and a 10 billion dollar black political agenda lobby group in Washington- coupled with the ability to use face book and twitter to network across the nation to boycott

    every time we are disrespected.

    There you go. :toast:

    This speaks to what I said in another thread expressing how economics and
    politics go hand in hand.

    We can rip on the teaparty all we like. Surely, I'm no fan of them.
    However, their voice is being heard..., to the degree that we find
    political candidates running on a teaparty platform. Correct me
    if I'm wrong, but did some of them win some of these recent
    election?

    However,

    They don't care what others think of them.
    They are moving with their agenda.

    We can't say for sure what would become of this party had they not have
    the backing of those billionaires. However, we can look at parties that
    have come and went, mainly because they didn't have the economic
    infrastructure to fund them so that they may get their agenda on the
    table and in motion...

    Found it!


    :toast:

    -Brawny Towels
    - Dixie Cup Products
    - Angel Soft Toilet Paper
    -Mardi Gras Napkins
    - Quilted Northern Toilet Paper; and,
    -they own Georgia Pacific -- so, check out what that company makes, . Stainmaster Carpets. (They have numerous environmental citations. Also, their companies are some of the biggest polluters in the world.)
