First Person Who Finds Koch Brothers’ Site Wins T-Shirt !

From the San Diego Free Press

Earlier this week we let the cat out the bag that the infamous Koch Brothers, the guys that are pumping $395 million for right wing causes into this year’s elections, are having a little get together in San Diego.

These meetings bring together ultra wealthy individuals to convince them to pool their monies on behalf of right wing and conservative causes. Koch Industries, the brothers’ privately owned oil, chemical and household products company, has sponsored the summits twice a year since 2003.

Past meetings have included big names conservative speakers like political stars like Eric Cantor, Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell, Rick Perry, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck along with Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Thomas.

We’d like to make sure that they get a nice warm “San Diego” reception for their little shindig, but there’s only one problem.

Its location is a secret.

Despite our best efforts, y’know, like Google and Facebook and stuff, we haven’t been able to track down the location that the Koch brothers are using. So we thought we’d put it out to you, dear readers, because we’ll bet that somebody out there knows the score here.

A couple of hints based on past Koch gatherings are in order:

1) these guys don’t think small—it will involve a lot of hotel rooms and

2) these guys have plenty of cash to throw around, so think luxury.

We know of one hotel that’s fully booked for this weekend that fits those criteria, but we’re looking for confirmation that it is indeed the Brothers Koch and friends.

Send your clues and sightings to contact@sandiegofreepress.org or obragblog@gmail.org. The first person in with the correct answer wins a very stylish OB Rag tee shirt.

Help us facilitate the Koch Brothers having a good time here in America’s Finest City.

I have no evidence but since Doug Manchester is a Tea Bagger extraordinaire, I’m guessing it will be at the Grand Del Mar. I would bet on it.

The Grand Del Mar sounds right as it has private villas for the ultra rich with private butler service. Security was tight when they held a previous confab in Rancho Mirage in the desert. These men are very controlling and it will be somewhere they don’t go off the grounds of the resort. Watch for helicopters as some of the rich will not be on the highways.

I would love to be part of the protest for this even, but the rich are walling themselves off in a gated community.

Look for Supreme Court justices who handed democracy over to this small group of right-wing billionaires to show up. Democracy is almost dead in America.
