    And the Kock bros. depended on inheritance and govt largesse to make their money. Again, not an example of adding value. More like stealing from the people
    Try reading for once. It won't make you look so silly and desparate.

    I said the Kochs increased their wealth hundreds of times over by the work the put into their company.

    You are the straw man builder. Selling product to the government is not welfare nor is it a handout. You are being silly.

    YOu have said that socialism is wrong, but now you seem to think it's OK
    As I said, and virtually everyone would agee, that selling products to the government is not handouts. As to selling to Stalin, let's assume this were true. Charles Koch did not sell to Stalin. Are you saying that the "sins" of the father fall to the sons? If that is your belief, are the children of Ted Kennedy killers of women?

    I don't believe that I ever denied that Koch made money off the government. Could you show where I did? You own nothing, but silliness.

    And I suggest you do the same. I've been saying, and providing documentation for, that the Kochs' are the recipients of govt handouts. Receiving a check from the govt is not work. Receiving an inheritance is not work

    This may be true, but if it were true, it would be yet another problem with the Federal Government and not Koch Industries.

    Sure it is. In addition, you have ignored the other proof I have posted about their recieving govt handouts. Even if you don't think doing business with the govt (at inflated prices) is an example of govt handouts, using govt land at below market price is. Taking natural resources off govt land at below market prices (for pennies on the dollar) is. Receiving subsidies (which even Koch Industries admits it does) is.
