    Take it or leave it, but it is interesting that ACORN has been completely vindicated for their alleged wrongdoing and mismanagement of government funds..

    OTOH Blackwater/Xe, Haliburton, Wackenhut and many other defense contractors daily defraud the government out of millions of dollars and there is silence... our priorities in this country are backazzwards.. we excuse those who defraud us regularly out of millions and continue to act innapropriately on foreign soil, but we want to punish an organization based on a heavily edited Breitbart Video..

    Agreed. Vindicated or not we all know that Bertha Lewis is a fat lazy eyed troll and Acorn employs ignorant pond scum.

    +1, and it never ceases to amaze me how low some people will go in their partisan blindness.

    Even more how some folks are blinded by the truth, hatred based on lies is the same thing as prejudice.. you don't have to like them, but need to respect the truth

    All the while defense contractors continue to steal, defraud our government, incur collateral damage, allow women to get raped and as a country we turn a blind eye.. something is very wrong here..

    I'm curious what, exactly, people know -- or think they know -- about ACORN. Anybody care to share specifics?

    Obama was part of them at one time, and that is all they need to know..

    Interesting that our congress is continually influenced by big business, the military industrial complex etc. and there is usually silence of fraud, death and overall misdoings.. but here is an agency that has been convicted of nothing, but seems to invoke vitriol..

    There is no reason, except Rushbo said it was bad, and dittoheads must follow, blindly like little lemmings.

    And in breaking news as well as for contrast... yesterday we gave a subsidiary of Xe a 120 million dollar contract, lines between defense contractors and congress blur..

    For ACORN, poor people do not have the power or money to lobby and influence decision making..

    There's no way in hell that you could have posted that with a straight face.

    Last I heard... Acorn was shutting down !

    I figured they would just change their name and get back on the dole.

    Q - Why doesn't the left just pick up Acorn's tab?

    A - The left prefers to spend other peoples money.

    That's Blackwater you're thinking of.

    You guys got in such a lather about this relatively piddling non-profit that you actually got a "Defund ACORN Act" passed last year, whereby the relative pittance in federal contracts they got were cut off cold turkey.

    I'm not falling into the "defend ACORN" discussion w/the jackass contingent; I'll leave it to Chico/Darryl to get straight answers out of you, if indeed you have any.

    Rather I will ask:

    Where is the Defund Xe Act? Where is the Defund BP Act? Where is the Defund Halliburton Act?

    How these sh1tbag outfits escape our collective righteous indignation? PArticularly BP?

    You're really more worried about one member of a community organizing group entrapped by a little punk posing as a pimp, than about the despoilation of whole coastal regions of the United States? No?

    Then why are Republicans apologizing to BP for making them accountable?

    I know I know, you're all very concerned about the plight of "the small people" right?

    :rolleyes:
