Americans for(Koch's)Prosperity

Americans for (Koch's) Prosperity
Index updated February 25.


Recently Americans for Prosperity, the Koch octopus front group, has invaded the Eastern slope of Colorado and my town with its dirty tricks intent on fomenting unrest.   I can't take that laying down, so I'm doing the one thing I can, start collecting and sharing information about the group's agenda and its many deceptions.  I hope it might interest others to learn about the group and the threat they pose to our democracy.  I believe it's time to confront the lies and demand a respect for fact based evidence.  Feel free to copy and use anything from the blog, remember to include original sources where appropriate.

(Since much of this collection is simply sharing the work of others, 
I’m using the pilcrow “¶” to indicate posts that contain my own thoughts and write-ups.)
