Are we going to fall for the PR sham that we shouldn't let 'Uncle Sam stick his finger up our butt?'

"Uncle Sam got this gig on Craigslist, where ads now running seek actors to wear the costume for a weekend in exchange for $275 from Generation Opportunity, which is billionaires David and Charles Koch’s delivery system for this dirty bomb."

I've seen the ad, absolutely disgusting, bordering on pornographic and an assault on the beloved image that stands for our country. There is no icon the Koch boys will not sully in their effort to make every last nickel they can, dollars before people, as always with them and their like. And they are all just as disgusting as the "creative" mind behind that ugly, and lying ad.

I wish I could have a few hours alone with these two OLIGARCHS. I'd like to play the role of "GHOST OF CHRISTMAS YET TO COME," and make them watch.

Morons. Complete & utter misogynists. These a**holes do not deserve their billion$. They are destructive to the human race. Please let others know. We need more active campaigns displaying the greed of these two and their various shady enterprises.

It is a shame we can not make and win a case of them being anti-America and terrorists and take all their monies and possessions and bail the government and the people out. But we would be called the same by the minions and meat puppets and unfortunately they are well placed in the government, banking and corporations to stop or destroy what or whoever to save the Koch's ass. They Koch already have a head start for shoving something up our ass and they just what to be special "Oh so very special"

I read the article in disbelief and with mounting disgust. If you have money or if you are a politician (and too many combine both), you are above the law and you can tell whatever lies you can think of. Thankfully a lot of people see hem for what they are: lies, but the people in general seem to buy into this crap. People have been brainwashed for so long by TV and its commercials that they can no longer think for themselves. They lap up whatever the Kochs vomit out in front of their noses.

Classic projecting there is a very strong suspicion that the Koch Brothers would find a creepy guy dressed as up as Uncle Sam giving people unwanted medical examinations a big turn on.in fact they would pay for that sort of attention I suspect about $275 on Craigslist.

I agree it was a most disgusting ad and a horrible use of the icon of our Country. The Koch brothers and some other Plutocrats have no concern for our Country nor the people within it. They only care if it makes them money or saves them money, then they care.

One one hand they push to have the Government up women's private area for these ultra sounds before they can have a medical procedure, even if their Doctor feels it isn't needed nor the women want. An ultra sound that must be paid by many poor women without medical insurance.

The tell the youth to take responsibility, but when the youth are offered a health care plan so if they become sick or break a leg they can be covered rather than passing the emergency room visit onto the taxpayers or leave themselves in debt with a high medical bill they can't pay. What kind of responsibility is that. These 1% Plutocrats spin it always to their favor and will have us all continue to slice our throats for their benefit over and over again.

Don't be fooled!

Koch is a 4 letter word......I think the Kochs need mental health/greed counseling.....maybe they don't have insurance and should be shown how the ACA will work????
