    When ACORN was alleged to have committed fraud after being entrapped by some videographers there was a following shytstorm and nothing really happened, now when Blackwater is bribing the Iraqi's for a cool million... there is silence... the response of the fools on the hill was to stop ACORN funding... but the silence about Blackwater, or XE is deafening...

    Have to remember where Blackwater gets its money from, the US taxpayer...

    Guess that this fits under the guise of security or the fog or war, or some other such nonsense and is not newsworthy...

    The voice of intelligence... but in reality Congress and all the rest of the decision makers do not even notice.. the beat will go on.

    The other part of this is that we do not know how much we give them, it is top secret...

    Acorn should have spent their time killing innocent muslims- then they could change their name and no one would have been upset.

    Let me refresh your memory, you loved Bush..'member

    You started to hate the war after Obama was elected.. not before.. you loved the idea of bombing women and children, when Bush was the boss... this is all new for you.

    I changed when I realized no WMD's existed.

    It isn't about me it's about the Phony Anti War "Idol Worshipers" they now have their beautiful SAVIOR, he has done "sh!t" they waved their little signs with tears streaming down their little groupie faces the signs read "Change" this Liar President will Change Nothing things are getting worse, watching him this week immediately following the Ft Hood slaughter was scary, our President is a Cold Fish.

    So many good decent people voted for this Politically Correct Poster Boy thinking "Change" now reality is setting in.

    The man who stood up in congress and yelled "You Lie" should be given the Congressional Medal Of Honor a statue of him should be placed on the Capitals steps.

    The Bush Years:
    Hollywood and millions of outraged Left Wingers were constantly Whailing and demanding Change and the end of the wars, Where The Hell Did They Go.

    How is Blackwater comparable to ACORN? This is a ridiculous comparrison. One is guilty of voter fraud here at home, and the other is a security force bribing people in a war zone, in a corrupt foreign country. I'm not condoning anything that Blackwater does, but the two situations are very different. Plus, who in here even likes Blackwater? If Blackwater were bribing US officials here at home, then I can guarantee you it would be front page news.

    Quite simply.. when there were allegations of misconduct of ACORN there was the response by Congress to pass a bill to stop the funding for them... as best as can be determined ACORN has gotten 53 million since 1991.

    Blackwater continues to exist, involved in all types of misconduct, including murder etc. and now bribes, they are bribing with the taxpayers dime...and there is silence.. no one knows how much Blackwater has even gotten over the years as it is hidden in the Defense BUdget..

    It is about duplicity and double standards, ACORN gets an immediate response and legislation is passed about something that did not happen... Blackwater continues to muddy the water and there is silence.. Capiche??? Why do we demonize some folks, and say nothing about others...

    If they're using your tax dollars for bribe money (and tbey are) then who in the hell cares where the officials are? Cripes, at least if they were bribing US officials our tax dollars would be staying at home.

    Both of you need a dose of reality. Any type of fraud that waste's tax payer money, is wrong. That goes without saying. However, REALITY is what it is, and people are obviously going to be more upset about a supposed not for profit that commits voter fraud here at home, and is on video telling citizens of the country how they can cheat on their taxes, when they bring in under age, illegal alien prostitutes from Al Salvador. It is what it is. That's my point. Blackwater bribing corrupt officials in war torn Iraq, will upset people for sure, but not nearly on the scale of what ACORN did here at home. Some people will see the bribe in a war zone as being the reality of the environment. The US military pays people as well. It's the nature of the beast there. AGAIN, I'm not condoning the act, nor am I supporting a mercenary company like Blackwater. I'm merely explaining why this comparrison is ridiculous. Blackwater runs security in a war zone. ACORN is not for profit here at home. They are apples and hand grenades. Or would it be hand grenades and apples? :confused2:

    Posta story about Blackwater bribing a US congressman a million bucks to vote for a bill, and you will see an instant defunding of the company. I guarantee it.

    Thanks for the dose of reality:rolleyes:this whole thing is duplicity and hypocrisy, ACORN was not defunded due to voter issues.. it was defunded due to the entrapment videos, and the play it got on Glenn and Fox News... it was a knee jerk reaction..

    ACORN has not been convicted of anything... your idea of scale is seriously lacking good judgement, all of the defense contractors have actually done things and have been found guilty or are pending judgement.. and the beat goes on.

    The reality is that Haliburton, Blackwater and the rest of the defense contractors have been ripping off this country 100 times more than ACORN and their is silence... no one is defending ACORN, just an example to show the absolute hypocrisy within the beltway...

    When they were doing sex acts and hazing in the Afghanistan Embassy, by Wackenhuts Armor All, was there an effort to defund???... no just a warning...

    The biggest donors to most of those folks who we "elect" are defense contractors... and they get their money from the taxpayers... WTF...

    Not quite sure where you get the bribing stuff from..

    Does Prince Barack have the power to get rid of Blackwater?

    Dear Mr Clooney,
    Is everything ok, we haven't heard from you since our New Prince was coronated.
