Jan. 25, 2016 The New Yorker’s James Suroweicki wrote “Bundynomics” pointing out that the Wild West benefitted from large amounts of federal funding subsidizing logging, mining and ranching.

Jane Mayer wrote “New Koch” about the Koch brothers attempts to change their negative image. A long time employee said “When you said ‘Koch’, you might as well have said you worked for the Devil.” Apparently they see things not going in their direction and are lobbying to keep they white collar criminals to going to jail. That is planning ahead.

Note: Somebody from the Koch brother’s hometown of Wichita actually read this.
