ACORN

November 29th, 2009

obamacornI’m not sure if any of you are following the ongoing political saga of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) and the efforts being made to make it look legal. ACORN is a group of activists who have openly tried to steal elections and bring undue pressure to bear on mortgage banks, to name just two of their subversive activities.

The Democrats have been big supporters of ACORN, at the expense of us all. Thanks to Glenn Beck, the heat got so bad that the Democrats went though the charade of cutting all funding to the group. Meanwhile, the forever “hippie” Jerry Brown, Attorney General of California, has tried to make ACORN’s actions in his state look completely legal. ACORN has received a similar boost on a national level from Attorney General Eric Holder.

What I find unique, or maybe stupid, are the loopholes that our government builds into the laws that can affect themselves, but, on the other hand, they see to it that we are burdened to the ground with regulations and laws. The benefits as well as the burdens should apply equally to all.

ACORN and another Obama bunch of strong-arm socialists, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) have continually intimidated voters to the point of beating them. In case some of you don’t know, the SEIU has 250,000 members. Oh, did I mention that most of the members are health care workers/providers.

I feel that both organizations wield far too much power. I’m aware that many of you don’t want to hear anything or consider anything that points to conspiracy, but Attorney General Holder has taken yet another shot at the general population by manipulation of the law. First the Gitmo Five and now ACORN. I’m afraid too many are sleeping when you should be paying closer attention.

    Don’t know if any of you caught this; I ran into it over the weekend

    So much for ACORN no longer receiving federal funding….

    Well, that relates to contracts that were obligated prior to the funding restriction but that are still due payments. That’s probably the right decision, even though I don’t like it any more than anyone else does. The language of the congressional restriction permits it, and ACORN could probably win in court if they challenged an abrogation of otherwise legal contracts. They may also have a legal case on the restriction itself, if it’s judged to be a bill of attainder. It would be interesting to watch a case like that play out.
