Koch Industries, Brawny Paper Towels

Not a soda, I know, but I couldn't resist writing a letter to Brawny telling them I wouldn't be buying any more of their paper towels because they are owned by Koch Industries. Seriously, that mustachio'd gentleman who traditionally adorns the wrapper would not approve of what the Koch dicks do.

Here was the response:

Thank you for contacting the Georgia-Pacific Consumer Response Center.
Georgia-Pacific places tremendous importance on the opinions we receive
from our consumers.

Georgia-Pacific is a wholly-owned, independently managed subsidiary of
Koch Industries. Koch companies, the Koch family and Koch foundations
have worked for more than 40 years to make the world a better place by
supporting market-based solutions to society's challenges. The company
believes that emphasis on market-based solutions is important, because
extensive historical and theoretical research shows that economic
freedom best fosters innovation, environmental stewardship and an
improved quality of life throughout society.

I am completely baffled at their belief that economic freedom is equated with environmental stewardship. And the idea that a company can believe anything is ridiculous. It's frightening that I've used these paper towels to blot up messes, as they were obviously designed by retards.


  1. Is this company paying for Zimmerman's defense in the shooting of Tayvon (the Florida youth). If so never will I buy anymore products producted by this company, and will circulate this information.

      Here's the important thing, though: The culture of the right created the laws which make the murder justifiable in the eyes of many. The ultra conservative Koch people help create and fund that culture as a whole. Even if their companies aren't directly handing money to Zimmerman and patting him on the back, they have helped create the political situation that makes so many American's assume the killing he enacted was justified.

      You're paper towel purchases helped create the entire political climate that made the Zimmerman prosecution into a divisive issue. Without Koch money driving the attitudes of the right, we would probably have more common sense in our society.
