Boycott Georgia-Pacific: The Koch Brothers’ Profit Engine
If you desire a return to democracy, a good way to do your part is boycott the Koch Brothers’ Georgia-Pacific products.
Some right-wingers lament the assault on the Koch Brothers, claiming they aren’t any worse than George Soros; and, of course, he is a billionaire communist. Soros’ billionionaire status doesn’t sit well with all liberal voters, but there is one main difference between Soros and the Koch brothers, which is unavoidable: Soros is quite open about his donations, while the Koch operate from the shadows. Soros publicly declared it his life’s goal to unseat George W. Bush from the presidency and would spend his fortune to do so, while the Koch’s have only recently come into the public consciousness.
With that in mind, we present a list of Georgia-Pacific products. One can easily gather this information with a few internet searches, but we feel it necessary to publish this list so that those readers still unaware might come across it on our site.
Want some mathematics to truly understand how powerful a boycott of Georgia-Pacific could be? Sure you do.
At Wal-Mart, a 36-pack of double roll Angel Soft toilet paper goes for $16.44. Since I am not in possession of hard sales figures of Angel Soft sales, we’ll have to pick some numbers. The population of the United States is 309,000,000. So, it’s reasonable to assume that one million people buy that 36-pack of Angel Soft double roll (or .oo3 of the U.s. population). Georgia-Pacific would thus stand to make $16.44 million off of those Angel Soft sales alone. Combine that with how well Georgia-Pacific does in sales of their other products, and how much of that revenue then floats up to the Koch Brothers coffers. Then imagine how your own money is being spent against you.
All it takes is a few seconds to look for that Georgia-Pacific logo on any toilet paper, tableware, napkins and paper towel. Construction laborers can also boycott the Koch Brothers’ Georgia-Pacific building products (listed below as well).
