    I like where this is going, but I'm nervous because I feel I need more dox before action is warranted.

    Paper products? Surely those boys own a conglomerate of companies, no?

    BRB, trolling SEC database...

  14. agent156 Member

    Wow the mob must be pissed legal no bid contracts.... here is the bill search for 16.896

    this is the bit copied from a pundit blog...

    16.896 Sale or contractual operation of state−owned heating, cooling, and power plants. (1) Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state−owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b)…

    Can you imagine what it would be like if it wasn't winter there? I predict a long hot summer is coming.

    For every dollar put into the Wisconsin State union employees, the employee put up 100 cents. Their pension is entirely funded by deferred payments and no money comes from Tax payers.

    At 10:39 the utility bit gets mentioned

    I think boycott idea this might be a troll by some union supporters who want to stir things up. I say this because it seems like an idea that is full of fail.

    When you're David you don't tell Goliath you're gunning for him. Instead you act natural, sneak across his perimeter when given the opportunity, grab loots, beat feets, and THEN issue a press release.

    IMHO the only people likely to be hurt by a short term drop in sales at Carlisle companies are workers in production facilities, not the uber-wealthy in bed with politicians. Plus I just don't see a populist boycott actually happening. How would it work? How do I, Joe Sixpack, boycott a manufacturer of roofing materials and SIPs?

    I think we should scrutinize the Koch brothers and their social network closely. The appropriate operation will arise once the community has a better understanding of what these boys are about.

    Boycotts never work as boycotts.

    Calls for boycotts tend to go viral very fucken fast... and this one caries the no bid message that needs to get out.

    I have never been a big fan of boycotts as it does tend to hit the average worker first, but sometimes you have to hit the corporations where they live, in the pocket book. I agree that there needs to be more investigation into the Koch Bros but their investors need to be made aware of the fact a boycott of their products may be necessary and it will affect their pocket books.

    Notes taken from a lengthy SEC filing here.

    Figures below are in millions:


    To recap: Carlisle has five divisions: construction, transportation, interconnect, foodservice, specialty products. The first two are the biggies. Overview of construction division below:

    Lol so its safe to say he made a lot of money off the housing bubble. I already knew GP made a massive share of the engineered wood products used today.

    Transportation is down in a extra bad way also.

    Looks like Walker already lost the game.
    The Koch brothers need to lose the game also.

    If looking for shenanigans like no-bid deals at inflated prices, I would start with ECS. Custom high tech solutions are hard to price objectively.
