Koch Brothers Exposed is the latest progressive documentary by Robert Greenwald.  The film weaves together a series of short films that examines the principals of Koch Industries, one of the nation’s top polluters.  Charles and David Koch are infamous for their funding of think-tanks that aim to deregulate business and scale back government programs such as Social Security, Medicare and the new healthcare reform law.

 “The Kochs are breathing, human representatives of the worst of the 1 percent — it’s the way they use their money to advance their economic self-interest and their ideology,” Greenwald told Alternet. “It’s not just about having money; it’s the use of the money, the use of the power — it’s the use of the money and power to impress and take advantage of others. And it’s the fact that they are fighting tooth and nail to make sure that capitalism has absolutely no restraints on it. And capitalism without restraints is a very ugly beast.”

David Cobb Delivers At June Film/Lecture Series Meeting

David Cobb’s appearance at the June FOP meeting at Poppa Rollo’s was an educational and inspirational event.  He outlined the history of the corporation, leading up to his main theme of the need for a citizens-led movement to amend the Constitution in order to nullify the recent Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court.  He also said that he believes that we are at the beginning of a major political re-alignment in this country.  David’s presentation was laced with good humor as he interacted with the group, and the night concluded with a lively discussion.
