    Whether you like ACORN or not, edited entrapment videos cause quite the sensation.. but have no legal bearing.. it is that constitution thing once again.. even though there is a need for a finding of guilt.. there is no credible evidence.

    It is from the NY Daily News so it has to be right..

    It really doesn't matter that they didn't break the law in this case. It only matters that they were exposed as bunch of scumbags. Good enough for me.

    They can't prove they broke laws, while good enough for the courts does not match your thread title. Not being able to prove someone broke no laws doesn't mean they didn't, though it is sufficient legally.

    Guilty or Not Guilty the whole country knows what Acorn is but of course one has to very careful of what one says about them, don't we?

    But Haliburton and Blackwater have broken laws and there is silence??? What is their budget, at least 10 billion..

    The duplicity is obvious..

    This isn't about Haliburton. It's about more crappy thread titles by you.

    You are correct that they won't be found guilty of breaking laws in Brooklyn. Good for them. That does NOT meant they broke no laws; though it doesn't mean they did either.

    Try writing accurate subjects sometime, not misleading crap.

    +1. There was never really any chance any actual legal ramification would take place, but now all of America knows what a bunch of dirtballs they are.

    The PC police from the right speak once again, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.. no it not about Haliburton, it is about how the right will use any means they want to achieve its goal.. even if it means breaking law. There used to be a modicum of decency, but no more.. guess Nixon started this..

    The right will dismiss the wrongdoings of their favored defense contractors even if they kill, defraud and allow rape to happen then cover it up, and instead focus on what might have happened by staging an event, entraping the "victims" then editing the event to make it look like something completely different.. reminds me of the photoshopping effort for the Pimp outfit in LA...

    If you think this is a right/left thing then you're more pathetically partisan than I thought. Whether it's lies or exaggerations or unprovable facts in the media or lying or hypocrisy from the politicians themselves, this is not just "the right" nor is it just "the left".

    The right had no part of the Breitbart video's did they?? The mouthpiece of the right, Fox News played them early and often... They revelled in the prospect that they had finally gotten the evil ACORN.. ACORN was tried and found guilty, even though subsequent investigations have shown that no laws were broken.. or there were any actions that warranted prosecution..

    The info on Haliburton, and Blackwater/Xe are factual and very well documented.. however there has been no outcry, just acceptance of their wrongdoing.. there has been no effort to stop their funding, even after killing some or our soldiers by building substandard barracks, embarassing the US on foreign soil, covering up rapes, overcharging for fuel oil, not fulfilling contracts, loosing weapons.. it goes on and on.. their wrongdoings are exhaustive, and there has been silence on Capitol Hill.. but the focus has been on entrapment videos of ACORN that have been edited and photoshopped.

    Just like the Left does for equivalent stuff. I have nothing left to say to you that won't get me banned or warned so I am out. Get a clue.

    Haliburton, haven't heard them mentioned since Bush left (just like wars/gitmo)

    Is Haliburton still operating, if so, and if they are the demons the Bush Haters say they are why hasn't our Gracious Lord Prince Barack Hussein Obama gotten rid of them...
    Iraq, Afghanistan, Gitmo, Haliburton we still got em, just like the good old Bush Days...

    CINDY OH CINDY WHERE DID YOU GO

    ACORN was very instrumental in getting Barry elected ... the rest is just all fluff.

    The right???

    President Obama, Why Did You Pay Blackwater $70 Million in February? [Updated]

    For those already outraged at the AIG bonus scandal, here is a fact that should add more fuel to the fire: The Obama administration has paid the mercenary firm formerly known as Blackwater nearly $70 million to operate in Iraq and, according to the Washington Times, may keep the company on the payroll months past the official expiration of its Iraq contract in May. I reviewed Blackwater's recent transactions with the Obama State Department and discovered a $45 million payment to Blackwater on February 4, 2009 for "protective services-Iraq." It is described as a "funding action only." Here is the interesting part: The estimated "Ultimate Completion Date" is 5/07/2011.

    From the huffington post. Another whoops dumb@ss moment for you, and sadly after all the outrage and spittle from your drooling insane lips Acorn is still a bunch of racist, illegal, dirtbags.

    There's a lot more to ACORN that somebody like me can't talk about.
