    That's great news. After Bush funneled huge amounts to conservative churches, the tide has turned and groups like ACORN that fight for the rights of poor people will get some funding. ACORN is a very good organization, though out of their thousands of volunteers and part-time employees a few are dishonest.

    Don't you thin the rights of the poor are going overboard with us soon to add health care and two years of unemployment to their "entitlements" ? We've already gone way too far.

    YEAH! screw the poor!


    why don't they just start working harder, and just get more money...? Pull themselves up by their boot-straps....all they need is a swift kick in the pants!


    tax-cuts!

    Basically, yeah. We've somehow moved from immigrants coming over and working 18 hours for peanuts to welfare moms with free healthcare, 2 years on unemployment, EITC, all the freebees, not getting to live the life I want to but living off the rest of us just fine. Enough.

    BF, you know I love ya, you know I was tongue and cheek with mine....

    but

    Its about as sucky a stance as you can take...

    Thats what happens when you eliminate manufacturing jobs, outsource them to build your profit levels, and cut taxes on the wealthiest 1%...

    we are left with no middle-lower class jobs, and no revenue to pay for those who can't find work. Add into that 2 wars, one of them MINDLESS...oh, and lets not bother to add any of that to the actual budget, lets call it 'discressionary spending'.

    Its no longer 'theory'. The process has been put into practice over the last decade and the grades are in (F-minus).

    Its a viscious cycle that has been created by a conservative philosophy. The basic, unspoken, intention of this agenda is to eliminate the middle class, export labor and import foreign educated workers. Its about as unamerican as it gets, yet a lot of people gravitate to this for some reason.

    It's two different issues.

    I am not in favor of exporting all our jobs and would like them back even if it caused higher than normal inflation.

    However - we can't have more and more people willing to take the freebees because although they don't provide for a great life, they're not much less than minimum wage type jobs so who wants to work for that ? You don't work, you don't eat (adults). Quite simple. If there's no jobs, they'd better start working 40 hours a week for their handouts even if it's just picking up trash.

    Notice your depends did not get into a bunch about this disengenuous thread with a misleading title.. however you were all atwitter yesterday about ACORN broke no laws in Brooklyn.. you make my point about selective outrage and while you criticize how partisan that was, you are silent on this thread.

    What happened to the 12 million illegal aliens that invaded America while Bush, McCain, Kennedy looked the other way, where are they, who feeds them, how do they get their heart attacks fixed, who fills their teeth, where do they live, do they have cars, who pays for their cell phones, if health care is so bad where do they get their liver examined......................:D:D

    What happened to the Swine Flu?

    Did Prince Barack put Jessie Jackoff & Little (tub of sh!t) Sharpton out of business?

    The budget is out of control !

    Acorn has already proved, they shoud not be receiving any money.

    They are talking about extending the unemployment benefits until the
    end of 2010 at 10 billion per month.

    What if the unemployment rate is about the same at the end of the year.

    Do we go into 2011, 2012 & beyond.

    Why is it that the labor unions do not have to prove that they are looking
    for work?

    They just keep collecting and working on the side.

    If the unions cannot put them to work, maybe it is time they start looking
    for a new job.

    We should do a study and track people who are chronically on gov't assistance. Unless they have a disabilty, no one should be able to collect assistance their entire lives...ESPECIALLY those that decide to have 4-5 children!

    Make them work 40 hours a week for their money just like we do. Check out roads/freeways, etc, there's plenty of trash to be picked up.

    Right now, Unemployment Check + Sitting at Home > McDonalds Check + working.

    Change that formula to :

    Unemployment Check + working to McDonalds Check + working

    and it looks a little different.
