that’ll EARN ya

Do you know who owns more than a 6% stake in the maker of .223 Bushmaster rifles, like the one used last Friday to murder 20 first graders and seven adults in Newtown, Connecticut? California public schoolteachers…


the Wisconsin Retirement System owns $5.5 million in Georgia Pacific corporate bonds. (Georgia Pacific is owned by Koch Industries.) This is the retirement system in which the overwhelming majority of state and local employees participate. These are the pension benefits that public employees are trying so hard to protect…

    Does he mean the bushmaster rifle that was in the trunk of the car ?

    The reports I’ve heard so far state that a Sig Sauer and Glock (handguns) were used by the murderer. But finding the truth is a secondary occupation for today’s newswriters.

    Here’s a rather honest discussion of the firearms terms.

    The CA Teachers’ Fund is seriously considering divesting those funds. I’m OK with that (unlike the loons who want their churches &c to divest from companies doing business with Israel. Like Caterpillar – but they have no problem to speak of with Caterpillar dealing with a truly repressive regime, China).

    If Caterpillar was really thinking, they would have come out with a special edition Rachel Corrie Model™ dozer a
    long time ago.
