What Religion is the Koch Brothers?

Is it any of my business? Well they sort of with their billions are poking their noses into my private world one way or another.  Their paid for political whores like Scot Walker or Paul Ryan do their bidding in their new property or toy called Wisconsin.

I believe the skinny on them is that they are lazy greedy business men who can bribe with political contributions to do dirty industry at a profit and leave the land behind scarred and unusable for dozens of generations.  Screw the planet!

I want to know what god besides money they worship. What went wrong with their potty training in whatever Sunday school that they were probably chained to as children.

Their father was a founder of the John Birch Society which is some far right white nativist group as if Europeans were the first natives in America.

The thing is this. I am curious and nowhere anywhere is a reference to their presumed basic belief systems for me to get an angle of understanding into my neighbors’ point of view and try to talk to them across an imagined old fashioned town square. Are they atheists?

I see their name on the PBS TV show NOVA which turned me off to watching their science sponsored show.  They do the opera thing in NY where I presume they have penthouses far from the reality of the average American on the average American Street.

I have to wonder who John Birch is. Is he another Joseph Smith type con artist/prophet kind of thing.

I see that one of the infamous Koch Brothers paid $2.3 million in 2011 for the only known early photo or “daguerreotype” of the hired for money gun killer Billy the Kid.  

A lot of money to me. Chump change to him. Still a lot of cash for a piece of what looks like a piece of junk that most people throw out everyday into the trash. Whatever

Still don’t know what religion the Kochs are unless Greed these days in the new global economy is a god and or religion – the only real god and or religion?

John Birch was the first soldier to die in the VIETNAM CONFLICT. He had nothing to do with the foundation and did not personally give his name to the foundation.

John birch was the first American killed in the Korean conflict by Chinese troops not in the Vietnamese conflict.

PI thought that John Birch was the last American killed in WWII. In any case, he has nothing to do with group that takes his name

John Birch was killed in China while he was involved in the U.S. effort to use the defeated Japanese troops to help Chiang Kai-Shek's forces take back control over parts of China that were under the control of the Communist Party and the People's Liberation Army.

This doesn't sound very Christian.

Have you ever read your screeds. You come across as one dumb fucker, who is jealous of other people's money. Stupid shit. Rabble rousing crap. Lazy fool. They give more to the poor than you'll every know. You, on the other hand, deserve only scorn.
