THE KOCHS, ER, MARCO RUBIO NEED MORE WELDERS: Errand boys come in all shapes, sizes, and demeanors. In the past few months, we have seen the Koch brothers' water carriers change in form from a sleazy third-world-style dictator who would "disappear" you for a nickel (Scatt Wanker) to the well-scrubbed preppie that is suggested by Marco Rubio. Quite a change in bearing, but the same old shit for sale.
Well, I guess Charlie and Davey must need a whole bunch more welders for their oil n' gas fantasyland, cause now Rubio sez we are producing too many philosophers and not enough welders. Who knew?
Which is the tip of the iceberg of the entire Koch philosophy: Their version of America doesn't work so well with an educated populace*, and that's why Scatt Wanker has so relentlessly attacked all forms of public education in Wisconsin, including technical colleges. But now, through the code-speak of new spokesrobot Rubio, the laboratory states of Albonsin and Albansas are being ordered to ramp up tech college funding because the Kochs need more welders.
Don't expect any calls for philosophers anytime soon. In KochAmerika, all people who receive four-year university educations will be personally selected by the company. The rest (including the welders, more than likely) will be easily replaced wage slaves. The entire system of voucher schools, which is already replacing public education in the laboratory states as public schools wither and die on the vine, is ultimately to ensure that only the children of the wealthy are able to attend quality schools that could reasonably prepare them for a university education.
Follow the money carefully. The GOP candidate, unless it's Trump, will more than likely be the spokesrobot for the ALEC/Koch empire. And don't ever forget--a vote against the Kochs is a vote for America!
*Get it straight: A city can be "populous," meaning well-populated. The people who live in that city are the "populace." If I read another sentence like "The populous was ready to revolt," I'm gonna...
