Don't ever refer to the KOCH(DOES NOT SPELL COKE) brothers Evil Geniuses. There is not one thing they have done that that term could be used, they are evil corporate criminals, willing to Lie, Cheat, and Steal anything and everything they want. They are pure sociopaths along with these politicians we continue to elect.
Now, regarding buying the Tribune by pooling the American public, ABSOLUTELY. We must regain our 1st Amendment, and currently the United States is completely isolated from the truth. We have to regain a foot hold and besides these institutions should regain the prestige and respect they held in the past. This is a very positive thing that I will be proud to be a part of.

Great idea. "We the People Inc." could own equal shares in these and other Wall Street companies, enjoy equal dividends, and make sure that the companies do right by all the people. This could signal the start of economic democracy.
