I saw the footage. The people at ACORN clearly, CLEARLY, know these two kids are full of shit a playing a prank so they go along with it. I can't believe this is even a scandal. It is all just an episode of Jackass.
ACORN is going to need that million. Doesn't matter who brought about the tapes. Doesn't change what's on them. I can't wait to see what the other tapes have on them. Like Jon Stewart pointed out, the most disturbing part was how the employees acted like this whole scenario was commonplace. "Tanja get form D" LOL It is kind of scary. How much illegal activity has ACORN helped "legitamize"? Aren't there other groups we can fund that don't engage in this behavior? There are thousands looking for gov. funding that can do the same good work. ACORN is out of control. Don't hate on these kids, ACORN were the fools caught with their pants down.
I have a Halloween costume that looks more or less exactly like that...You know, the one with the little leather halter top and a sarong that shows off my shaved crotch.
ACORN should hire nuns to work for them. They work with prostitutes all the time without "good Christian soldiers" getting up in arms about it.
"ACORN should hire nuns to work for them. They work with prostitutes all the time without "good Christian soldiers" getting up in arms about it."Nuns don't help them set up shop, and bring in underage prostitutes to be sex slaves.
Neither does ACORN...Did you even see the videos? The scandal is that the ACORN worker told them to not report their illegally obtained funds.Have fun in Crazy Land!
Pirate Bunny you are in nutsville if you think that ACORN didn't advise these kids how to run their business. I have watched ALL of the tapes, have you? The ACORN employees didn't know that the scenarios weren't real. The lovely ladies in Maryland offered to prepare the fraudulent taxes for the pair. Even to give them a discount. The guy in California thought he would be helping to bring in underage girls. You are whack if you try and defend this kind of nutty.Can't wait to see what's on the other tapes. Of course it won't matter to the true believers. Nuns try to help women of the night get out of the business, not help them with their business. Nice try. Fail.
Hey anonymous, Acorn used to get $3.5 million a year from the feds. They are scary black people helping the very poor. Focus all your outrage on that group. Don't look at the real waste that is going down. Haliburton gets 3.5 million dollars a day has wasted hundreds of millions and does such shoddy work that several soldiers have been electrocuted in the shower. Blackwater - whatever they are called now - continues to get similair funding when we have films of them driving down the highway in Iraq shooting up Iraqi's for no apparent reason. (that sure helped win hearts and minds.) They also have wasted millions. Depending on whose numbers you use, we lost 8 to 12 billion in cash in Iraq, with no answer who got what. ("Three Kings" come to life). In 2002 UHC was fined $4 million for bilking Medicaid. The CEO at the time is now helping lead the charge against reforming insurance. Phizer just agreed to pay a fine of 2.3 billion for voilating the law. I could go on and on (Boeing).Where is your outrage? Shouldn't it be a hundred fold more intense than the outrage over Acorn? Oh yeah, Halliburton, Blackwater, UHC and Phizer don't get poor black people to vote for democrats.
I looked at the picture before reading the blurb, and assumed it was a still from "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell." Not far off, and yet...
Um, son where is my mink stole? I need it for that party at the Seinfelds tonight.
Hey Einstein(aka Mart) how do you know I am not outraged over Haliburton? Please try to stay on topic. I believe this blog was on ACORN. Haliburton has nothing to do with the sleazes at ACORN. Classic tactic of someone losing an argument, is to divert the argument. There is no defending this behavior. Like Dr. King says I chose to judge people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin. ACORN failed the character test. Why won't Ms.Lewis open the books? And please keep your answer focused on topic. How racist of you to assume that a black person would only vote for a Democrat. Why would a black person be concerned with higher taxes, bigger government, or perhaps abortion. I mean all they need to concern themselves, by your estimation, is entitlment issues. Get a life.
You know, I feel a bit like a jackass. A bit off topic, but the other day, on your site, I (we) were bantering about terrorism issues on US soil and laying fault in a political context. If you read the headlines today, it appears that there is some serious shit going on right now. In fact, it is likely, as we have been told, a threat is on-going. You know, we (you and I) throw blame and credit for this politican and that politican, but at the end of the day, we pay some hefty taxes to people who are working to keep us safe. The past 7years, regardless of the administration, we have been fortunate to have people who are working tirelessly to keep bad things from going down. Those very same people, beyond election cycles and political rhetoric, are working their asses off to keep us safe.And they have, at least for tonight been successful. I hope that when they do fail, and they very well might, that we are reserved in our criticisms of them and whomever is at the helm at the time. And for now, I only say; Thank you.
Sigh... This old shit? Isn't there something else we can be doing other than discussing this stupidity?
From Eric Alterman..."The plan from the very beginning was to damage the reputation of the organization. O’Keefe (the pimp)admits that his enmity for ACORN derived from its success helping Democrats win elections, not from any charges of corruption. The Post also points out that in Philadelphia ACORN employees called the police when the duo left the offices there." Being an Einstein (thanks for recognizing my smarts) I know poor black people vote well over 90% democratic as they know the republican race strategy. I was trying to get at how we get played to divert our attention from the big boy crimes. These two are not journalists, they are a political hit team. They likely broke privacy laws, and I believe no crime should go unpunished just like you. You inferred I was defending Acorn's behavoir on the tapes. Where did I say it was OK for them to give illegal and immoral advice? Classic tactic of someone losing an argument, is to divert the argument.
