As penance for making a slandeorus post elsewhere that accused the Koch organization of

Last edited Mon May 18, 2020, 09:48 PM - Edit history (1)

producing Charmin, I have edited that post and present here the straight skinny. Some of this information is old but still valid and a good learning experience for me:

Koch owns Georgia-Pacific headquartered in Atlanta and produces paper products under the Fort James brand name plus these others:

"The only way to stop people like the Koch Brothers is to turn off their money spigot. We the American people can do this by not buying their paper products, which include VANITY FAIR, QUILTED NORTHERN, ANGEL SOFT, SPARKLE, BRAWNEY, MARDI GRAS, AND DIXIE."

"Companies Owned by Koch Brothers and the Products they Sell(...)

The Koch Brothers (David and Charles) own:

Koch Industries
Invista
Georgia-Pacific
Flint Hills Resources
*Dupont
Koch Pipeline
Koch Fertilizer
Koch Minerals
Matador Cattle Company"

much more at link: https://progressivenetwork.wordpress.com/2013/03/23/companies-owned-by-koch-brothers-and-the-products-they-sell/

Let's keep it up, we already got rid of one of the brothers!

3. I haven't spent one cent on any Georgia Pacific product since Act 10.

And I never will!

4. You forgot Mike Pompeo.

He used to be just their wholly owned congressman from Kansas and then their Director of the CIA. Now he is their wholly owned Sec. of State.

5. Silly me. I was so focused on my own transgression and those of the Kochs that I ignored

Pompeo. But I haven't forgotten him. Doesn't he belong to tRUMP now? I think picking off the people
around tRUMP is good strategy. It looks like time will be our ally too. David died in 2019 at age 79
and Charles is 85 now... While I was searching around I also found out that Keith Rupert Murdoch is 89. Hmmm Koch, Murdoch coincidence or not?

Thanks for expanding my universe and helping me double down on getting rid of all these people.

6. It's hard to avoid Koch-related products!

They have their greasy little fingers in everything, right down to the stuffing in your chairs!
