Dining on antelope pâté
Charles Koch takes to the pages of The Daily Plutocrat to pat himself on the back for being brave enough to bruise his heel on the heads of blood-sucking proles and to exhort his fellow oligarchs to not “paint their tails white.” No, really—that last part is a direct quote:
Even though it affects our business, as a matter of principle our company has been outspoken in defense of economic freedom. This country would be much better off if every company would do the same. Instead, we see far too many businesses that paint their tails white and run with the antelope.
What. The. Fuck? Also, you can have your Walmart greeter job back when you stop electing anti-colonial Kenyans:
I am confident that businesses like ours will hire more people and invest in more equipment when our country’s financial future looks more promising.
So one of the nation’s more egregious examples of wealth-building through inheritance and crony capitalism is lecturing us on free enterprise. I look forward to the WSJ’s upcoming self-help series featuring Charlie Sheen on career management, shopping tips from Lindsay Lohan and a good government seminar by Muammar Gaddafi.
