Sedition is What This Is

There is no other word to describe the shutdown in D.C., not to mention the possibility of the government defaulting.

The Kochs, of course, are behind this shit:

The current budget brinkmanship is just the latest development in a well-financed, broad-based assault on the health law, Mr. Obama’s signature legislative initiative. Groups like Tea Party Patriots, Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks are all immersed in the fight, as is Club for Growth, a business-backed nonprofit organization. Some, like Generation Opportunity and Young Americans for Liberty, both aimed at young adults, are upstarts. Heritage Action is new, too, founded in 2010 to advance the policy prescriptions of its sister group, the Heritage Foundation.

The billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, have been deeply involved with financing the overall effort. A group linked to the Kochs, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, disbursed more than $200 million last year to nonprofit organizations involved in the fight. Included was $5 million to Generation Opportunity, which created a buzz last month with an Internet advertisement showing a menacing Uncle Sam figure popping up between a woman’s legs during a gynecological exam.

When are those two going to be charged with sedition against the United States? They are as anti-American as anybody can get.

From a local point of view, my representative Greg Walden is probably cooked for telling the truth.

Or maybe not. The district is almost as wingnutty as the second congressional district in Nevada.
