The Koch way of doing anti-environmental business brothers
The Kochs sit at the top of Koch Industries, a mammoth multi-purpose enterprise, which explains their fierce animosity toward the Environmental Protection Agency, climate change and anything else that threatens to cost them a buck or two from liberal politicians like Sherrod Brown. On the other hand, they are friendly to Brown's Republican opponent Josh Mandel, who also believes, among other nonsensical things, that climate change is a hoax. And that greater coal production is the wave of the energy future for a healthy economy.
There are times when I hear Mandel's utterances that I have to believe they came directly from the Koch's office suite.
So the voters will have to decide whether they consider Kochs' mailers are from people concerned solely with their welfare, or whether we should avoid returning to the days of Elizabethan England when the air could be inhaled with a spoon.
