Once again, as with so many agencies supported by gov't funding, the "few" bad apples spoil the basketful. Once upon a time.. in a land whose principles stood for honesty and integrity, helping their fellow man, woman and child was commonplace. This still exists in many areas of the country.. though, it is evident the core is slowly becoming infected and rotted, an that is NOT selecting one particular group of people or race over another. It is merely distinguishing the selfishness of a large portion of today's society. And in short, many power hungry individuals believe themselves to be above the law and mightier with the self-appointed power to do as they please, when they please, and to whom they please... thereby, changing things for their benefit.. or pleading, "I didn't do it..." or "I'm innocent!" Sadly, the true victims no longer have the rights the criminals do.
Case in point... the current administration's attack upon the itegrity of the CIA. Though, that will change the day when, another terrorist attack hits us square in the heartland of America. Of course by making such a statement opens my own self to the critics (liberal left-wing assholes) who actually have the distorted belief that "all men are equal and should be allowed a proper defense of judgement for their criminal acts." It has been this type of belief that is the catalyst for tearin down of the aforementioned principles of honesty, integrity this country was founded upon. And to those who find my words objectionable and disagree with me... too F****** bad.
Who says you're right? Who are you to judge? And as it was several years ago, the statement was, "if you don't like it here, leave... and take your absurd idealogies of socialistic wisdom (or lack thereof) with you.

If it's run by the government, you can rest assured that there is going to be waste and mismanagement. The people running the show at this point in time are pushing for more government involvement, while at the same time telling the public that they are going to save money while doing it.

ACORN is the type of community organizing group that the President wants to expand all over the country. Well guess what Mr. President, we already have community orginizations all over the country. We The People like to call them states (I know he's familiar with the term, because according to him, we have 57 of them).

We have to admit that ACORN was a good idea, on paper only.
This organization is the sole reason for the bad economy.
With all the "ninja" loans (no income, no job, aplications)that they gave out to undocumented americans, we find ourselves here. I belive now, that we should also investigate all ties to any and all voter registration that they, ACORN, had any activity with. I also think we should have a recount to see If Mr obama really did win fair and square.
I think we would all be surprised at the real tally.

8 years ago, President Bush ordered the Justice Department to investigate widespread allegations of voter fraud in the 2000 elections. This resulted in the President firing of several attorney generals who failed to diligently investigate the matter.

I seem to recall that many of the allegations involved voter registration fraud, unlike that activity of Acorn in the last election. Was Acorn also involved in the 2000 election frauds?

Amazing how easily the various Acorn offices were taken in by the hidden camera imposters. Leads me to think that Acorn enables fraudulent activity by its clients on a regular basis.

I bet Acorn is busy burning, shredding, and filling dumpsters with its client files and memos while the various US and State attorney generals are fiddling time away.

But then again, Acorn never tortured any enemy combatants, so why should we bother with them.

Ct is in the process of changeing the law that would allow voter registration on voting day. Hope acorn goes down they would have a field day with the new law.

I don't think ACORN ever issued a loan. The only person who's been prosecuted and convicted of felony voter fraud in Federal Court in a decade was a Republican operative in New Hampshire. He was prosecuted by a Republican Administration for tampering with Democratic phone systems in the 2004 elections. Ironically, the same administration later purged other Republican prosecutors who felt there was insufficient evidence to go forward with cases against alleged Democratic tampering.
