From our local Coffee Party (the progressive answer to the rapidly fading right wing Teabagger extremists):

The event will be held on Thursday, March 14, from 7-9 PM at All Souls, 1157 Lexington Avenue at 80th Street. The panel will be moderated by Laura Flanders of GRITtv.org.
The renowned panelists will tackle what the Koch brothers have been doing, and what they have been funding, to co-opt our democracy and make it work for themselves. It will cover their activities during the run-up to the last election, in American colleges, in the American Legislative Executive Council (ALEC), in climate change denial, and in the corporate effort to destroy organized labor.

For my part, I have started boycotting Georgia Pacific paper products since they are owned by the Koch Brothers. I don't want to be giving these anti-democracy right wingers money each time I wipe my ass or blow my nose.
