The Koch Donor's boner.

The Koch brothers accidentally left a confidential document at their last donor conference...

A list of one-on-one meetings between VIP conservative donors and the Kochs and their operatives offers a revealing look into their mighty political machine.

...The document lists VIP donors—including John Schnatter, the founder of the Papa John's pizza chain—who were scheduled for one-on-one meetings with representatives of the ... Kochworld.

Don't forget to hate Peyton Manning too. Besides being a straight, married white man, he owns a bunch of Papa John's franchise locations.

you could be right...

Elway... was asked by Chris Wallace why he is a Republican.

“Well, it goes to what my beliefs are,” Elway said. “I believe that we’re giving the opportunity to succeed or not succeed.”

“I don’t believe in safety nets,” he said. “Obviously, we’ve got to have some kind of safety nets. But I think my philosophy is when given the opportunity to go take advantage of that, I think that’s when you get the best out of people.”
Said the man with a $145 million safety net of his own.

As the Daily Kos points out, perhaps it’s time the “non-profit” NFL stops being a taker and starts paying taxes.

Thanks for the tip, Ned. I'm sure it will be easy to avoid Manning's franchises along with all the rest. I'll be sure to pass this along to everyone I know. :wave:

Oh, and you are projecting again - "hate on"? I suppose if that is your only outlook, it's the first thing you accuse others of :wtf: . Maybe by losing business, Manning will reflect on the poor choices he made - you know, that whole "personal responsibility" thing that republicons so love to shove in everyone's faces. :thumbup:
