    Without offering an alternative to theory A you are strengthening theory B, in this case. And that's not good…
    If Big Coal ran the country we'd be screwed–if the Tea Party gets top office Big Coal WILL ru(i)n this country.

    Soros funds MOST progressive groups including the ones that run the White House. Recently, FCC colluded with Soros and now the UN to make the internet regulated and the UN wants it guaranteed to all free as a 'human right'.

    Further it is the OIL INDUSTRY who is perpetuating the climate change hoax, and funding people like 350.org who are radical groups seeking to shut down industry in this country, namely the Rockefeller Bros… the idea is to get a carbon tax to line their pockets even further.

    The Koch Bros have absolutely NOTHING to do with starting the tea party which happened in 2007 Dec 16.

    You progressives are useful idiots for the corporate elites and the UN and Wall Street crony caps. SHAME on you.
