|all of these actions....the court ruling and the concerted attacks on labor at a level not seen in modern times, is of a piece.....it is part of a long-term plan developed with the support and I would guess, the active participation of the Koch family.Because unions have for the most part, been the single most powerful counterweight to the vast and growing amounts of money being channeled from global sources through shadowy third-party groups in support of conservative political causes, politicians and interest groups. We are incredibly naive if we believe this is all happening spontaneously. It has been clear for some time now that the Koch empire is investing millions in support of conservative causes, but what seems almost certain is that these investments are not being made without a specific, careful and well coordinated plan in mind.|
