Well, that was an interesting experience.
The column traced the funding for Americans for Prosperity, and most of the primary foundations funding the Tea Party movement (the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, Freedomworks, etc.) back to the massive and politically aggressive Koch Industries.
I noted that Common Sense Citizens of Washington County, a local political group running three candidates for local office (two of which are self-identified creationists running for positions on the school board), is affiliated with AFP and that these candidates parrot the same anti-tax, anti-government, ant-regulation rhetoric on which AFP has built a following. I noted that this rhetoric, designed to appeal to "just plain folks" actually serves the interests of billionaire industrialists, not working people trying to hang on to their jobs.
Either Conley Publishing didn't like something in the piece or I stepped over a line somewhere.
Next week's column, something about kittens.
