Mr Koch didn't get to be one of the richest men in America by being stupid.

Wine can be a pleasure, or an investment.
There can also be a pleasure in owning a rich and rare object, even if it is never used, and can be sold down the road at a profit.

Yes, that's what teabag reactionary "job creators" like the Kocks do. They have so much money they make frivolous purchases of bullshit since they already own everything else. Then complain they pay too much in taxes. Well then Bill, tell me how Fred the father and the rest of the clan made so much money if they paid so much in taxes? My accountant told me not to complain about the amount of taxes I paid. He said be happy, the more you pay in taxes means you made that much more money.

I never told you that the Koches pay a fair load of taxes.
The father was a founder of the insane John Birch Society, which I consider to be a hate group.

The Koch money comes from petroleum refining, rolled into amalgamating various industries.

It certainly would be better if the Koches put more of their riches into American jobs creation, rather than spending it on frippery.

I know you didn't tell me they payed a fair load in taxes. They are the ones that complain they pay too much. But they still have more than enough to fund the Teabag movement and every other frightwingnut organization you can think of. And I know Fred was a Bircher. Where do you think the rest of the family got their beliefs.

The Kocks are American, believe in America and support American Charities..

Your messiah nobama's biggest supporter George Soros has bragged of bringing down America.

Many former mob members served honorably in WWII and were decorated soldiers..

Nobama's biggest contributor George Soros was a Nazi collaborator..google it, genius. Soros conducted murderous speculative assaults against the nations of the developing sector, causing countless deaths. By his own admission, in his own words, and in the words of his own father, George Soros was a witting participant in the Holocaust, as a Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary.
George Soros went on to adopt the identity of the godson of a mid-level Hungarian official, responsible for the confiscation of Jewish property of wealthy Jews shipped off to Auschwitz. In at least two television interviews, in 1994 and 1998, Soros freely admitted to his Nazi collaboration, and declared that he felt no guilt over his actions.

Capone was a spit in the wind, billy boy.

Dick Cheney was 'too busy,' and GW Bush is STILL AWOL.
Bush's grandfather was king collaberator & arms dealer to Hitler, so what?

And how old is this SOROS, 120?
No, he would have nbeen a teen in WWII, and besides, was a jew.
The subjecct is phony wine, moron.

Here are some lessons for you:

Learn subtraction.

Don't believe asshole FOXLIES or other moronic webites or broadcasts, they are lying to fools.

Stick to subject.

Don't blame NAZIs on Jews.

Serves them right! I told the damn fools that diluting the wine with Red Bull would give it away!
