ACORN To Cease Operations April 1 Due To Financial Hardships

March 25, 2010 by  

ACORN to cease operations April 1 due to financial hardships The embattled and highly controversial community organizing group known as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, announced on Monday that it will formally disband on April 1 due to declining revenues.

ACORN’s funding and reputation took a huge hit last year after a widely disseminated video showed several of the anti-poverty group’s employees giving tax advice to two conservative activists posing as a prostitute and pimp. The organization’s credibility has also been tarnished over the last 18 months following several charges of voter fraud and embezzlement.

In light of the video, which surfaced in September 2009, Congress pulled ACORN’s federal funding, while many private donors have blacklisted the organization. Officials with the group have consistently professed their innocence and have indicated that partisan attacks have forced them to close their doors.

“ACORN has faced a series of well-orchestrated, relentless, well-funded right wing attacks that are unprecedented since the McCarthy era,” said Bertha Lewis, CEO of ACORN. “The videos were a manufactured, sensational story that led to rush to judgment and an unconstitutional act by Congress.”

Although the organization will officially disband in April, several of ACORN’s affiliates broke away earlier this year and are operating under different names.

    Good ridance of bad rubbish. Now if they wouldn’t start up under another alias!! I hope the higher up of this organization get brought
    up on charges that they can’t beat!!

    • Gary

      I think we are expected to celebrate this ACORN demise and forget about this organization that did not have the best interest of the freedoms and liberty this nation was founded upon. ACORN was the action wing of the Obama political machine that often operated below the radar screen, and certainly below the Constitutional mandate of a free and unencumbered society. Don’t turn your back and attention away from this form of Brown Shirt organization – it will remorph while you are not looking because Obama Inc. needs them to intimidate voters and recruit more parasites to the government dole, which strengthens their electable power. They are a dangerous cancer in their vulnerable host.

      • TIME

        Joe / Gary, They are not gone nor have they disbanded, I think the term you should explore is diversing in to new units made up of the same base, more like transcending in to a new grouping of the same old thing with new names.

        Now we will have to trcak them down and post what the new names they are going under so everyone will know who they are.
        Keep in mind they are the base of the Marxist movement here in the US, just as the storm troops or the SA brown shirts. there was a period where these SA troops worn no shirts, due to the laws that alledgly disbaned the SA, yet they were still there spwewing hate toward the Jews in Germany as well Catholic’s and the German government.

        Just as in Germany the SA after the night of the long knifes did not fade away, they were overshadowed by the Gestapo from the small unit with the SA called the SS. Not unlike in Russia in 1916 the first groups of Marxist were a like gang of thugs who then turned into the KGB. You all know how that worked out.

      • bab

        ACORN WE THE PEOPLE will find you what ever name you hide under. We are watching

        • momof4

          Bab,
          Yes, we need to watch very closely. I don’t believe for one minute they won’t be out there.

    • http://yahoo fred miller

      Po bertha,now go an get ya some chitlins.

    • Earlw

      I thought I saw in another newsletter that the FEDGOV quietly reinstated the subsidy. I hope I’m wrong! I think it likely they’ll spring up in another form…
      The NWO and “Council of 300″ people want it that way!

      • Mrs.MacTeacher

        I, too, heard that the President had reinstated funding for this group. I hope I heard wrong. Anyone out there know the facts about this ? The article had a quote which included placing blame on “an unconstitutional act by Congress” that supposedly caused them to close up shop. What was the “unconstitutional act by Congress,” I wonder? Any details on that? Reply with answers will be so appreciated. I value facts over opinion any day.

    • jomama

      YAY!!!

  • JeffH

    Well well well! Isn’t that some wonderful news? The Soros/Obama ACORN is finished, finally! Look for another organization just like ACORN to surface soon. Soros doesn’t like to lose, and Obama is still in a position to influence whatever he darn well pleases to. The puppet and his puppetmaster will find another, but Amnesty and Gun Control are the next on the “to do” list.

    • Claire

      Joe H and Jeff H—Good news!! We need some. Does anyone know the names of the factions that broke away and are operating under different names? And I agree- now to take care of the illegals and gun control. I am concerned about the illegals. I KNOW I will keep my guns.

      • denniso

        Claire…no one is taking your guns away. And how can people be so upset about a voter organization registering people to vote,when all we’ve heard for decades is that not enough people turn out to vote? Yes,Acorn did some things they shouldn’t have,but the bulk of their work was legal and needed to empower Americans to take part in their political system. Repubs have done sleazy things as well to try to get their people to the polls. We need more groups expanding the voter rolls,not fewer. Don’t broadbrush all of what Acorn did by the bad actions of a few workers.
        And, Claire, you used to sound more reasonable and less vitriolic…are these hotheads getting to you? I hope not…

        • JeffH

          dennisso, Are you tryig to use the “reach out” chapter in your masterminds manual…”Rules for Radicals”? Yeah, reach out, regain their trust, then bite ‘em where the sun don’t shine.

        • keith

          just another in the ranks of the pissed off and highly aggravated!!

        • Claire

          denniso–No one is “getting” to me. I am simply speaking my thoughts. I just do not believe some of these groups should get involved with the voters. It should be up to the voter to vote whatever way they choose, and not be swayed into doing anything. Shenanigans like this have been going on for years. These organizations should keep a good eye on their employees/workers and make absolutely sure everything is on the “up and up.” Where there is smoke, there is fire. There are a lot of underhanded things going on within these organizations, and they should be called on it. If they are “crooked” run them out of town. To me, this is a form of crooked politics.

          • denniso

            Hi Claire…Most of the voter groups,Acorn inlcluded,only spend time registering voters. And,what I meant about you was that you sound more angry and strident…I hope not,because you’ve been one of the most civil people here.

        • Robert

          It’s not working Denniso. You can make excuses for scumbag groups like ACORN all you want, but all they are/were is another group of left wing extremist termites out to steal what they can from the ordinary taxpaying American. And just because they’re claiming to disband I don’t for a second expect them to just disappear. I’m sure the Obama communists will keep them under the radar under another name until their “services” are needed again.

    • John

      JeffH,

      I’m sure that ACORN was largely responsible for getting this poor excuse of a President elected. And yes, they’re still around they’re founder has already started other like organizations.

      I’m sure they’ll be plying their craft in November.

      • JeffH

        AAAH YES, so true. We’re keeping our eyes open for them.

      • eyeswideopen

        John, do you know how many people are registered to vote? You need to check how many republican voters, voted, and what happened that all those votes didn’t go to McCain. It was Independents and repubs voting for Obama, that put him in office. Acorn didn’t register that many voters. Math is the easiest way to do an analysis of your loss. I would give you the links, but you wouldn’t believe them, so google it yourself and just do the math. Facts are easy to read.

        • JeffH

          Nobody cares what you are rambling about, idiot!

          • denniso

            Eyes makes a civil comment and you respond w/ ‘idiot’…I can see that you’re not trying to reach out, are you…

          • JeffH

            dennisso, trying to reach out? Ha! Give us a break…your mantra is namecalling…and you want a response to that?
            Hypocrite! How’s that, you are one roaring hypocrite!
            You’re dumber than dumb to thing anyone is going to fall for that crap! How many times can you get stabbed in the back before you trust them? Not gonna happen anymore….full assault, locked and loaded with the powder real dry.

          • eyeswideopen

            JeffH, I can see why you have been kicked off other sites.

        • keith

          bub you really need to lay off those shrooms,they are destroying the last couple of functioning brain cells you got left.

        • Robert

          I’m an Independent and believe me, Obama was the last candidate I would have ever considered voting for. However the Republicans made a huge mistake running a left wing Republican RINO against him. At times it seemed McCain was campaigning for Obama. As a conservative Independent I have advice for the Republican Party. Don’t waste time and money trying to put left wing RINOs in public office. All it makes you do is look like you’re trying to be Commiecrats too.

  • Jim H.

    They are to cease operations April 1rst? APRIL FOOLS!!!!!

    • Fed Up Gal in NM

      Jim H,

      He He He…..LoL Funny! How uncanny for April 1st….I wonder now, if the ACORN groups are the fools or are we (as a society) the fools for not loudly voicing our concerns years earlier and thereby allowing such corruption to infiltrate our communities?

      For those who will assume I did not get Jim’s “April Fools” comment, I got it….I was simply making a point.

      Fed Up Gal

      • Nels Nelson

        We will be the April 1 fools if we think ‘they’ have gone away! My guess is that something 7 times worse is ‘crawling’ around out there!
        Nels

        • eyeswideopen

          Nels, yes and his name is Nathan Spouls. Google him and be proud.

          • JeffH

            And what pray tell is there to be proud of? There was no “Nathan Spouls” to be found, as usual.

          • eyeswideopen

            Jeff, typo error, Nathan Spoul. see below links. You just ignore his actions, I have posted this info many times. You are in denial.

          • JeffH

            Either way 15EEEE, what or how does that affect ACORN or this post? It doesn’t, it is meaningless to me, especially knowing the fact I’m not a Rebublican.

          • JeffH

            Eyes with size 15EEEE in your mouth, this is a like your undying efforts to support Soros undying anti-American quest to destroy YOUR COUNTRIES BACKBONE…FREEDOM.

          • eyeswideopen

            Jeff, you continually attack the dems via Soros, while never acknowledging that the repubs have a wealthier man doing the same things that Soros does. I am merely pointing out that the Conservative side also has their big bad boogey man who funds them with never ending money. You are so upset with what Soros does, but you turn a blind eye to Sheldon Adelson. You seem to function under the idea that only you and the conservatives/repubs have the answers and conduct your business in righteous ways. You blame everything wrong in the world on the liberals, which is just ludicrous.

          • JeffH

            eyes, all you do is show everyone how a complete liberal idiot responds to every Soros comment. You just don’t want your NAZI loving hero to be exposed. I’ve formed my opinion after many, many hours of research. It’s all over the internet for even those that turn a blind eye to it. Just accept the facts. Adleson couldn’t light Soros candle and is totally meaningless in the fight to save our country and ultimately our freedom, which you would rather have taken away from you before you wake up! With your eyeslammedshut, you’ll never be able to see any light. Get on the “Patriot Bus” while you still can or let your brain die a slow death along with your anti-American Marxist/socialist pals.

          • JeffH

            Eyes, it is very important that Americans understand that Soros is very much involved and operating behind the scene in the fundamental dimantling of Americas values and freedoms. The Soros name is metioned frequently bt those that aren’t controlled by one of the many organizations and groups he has funded or found.

            “You blame everything wrong in the world on the liberals, which is just ludicrous.”

            That statement coming from you, the master of the “blame game”. open up your eyes just once, just once to see the hypocracy in that statement.

          • Joe H.

            JeffH,
            “do you wear clothes with a bullseye painted on them?? No Jeff, she has one tatooed on her forehead!!!!

            JeffH,
            I’m real glad to see that not all of soreass’ projects succede!! Look at that list and see that with ACORN there are at least TWO FAILURES!!! AIR AMERICA, six years and nothing but static!!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            Jeff, show me the proof that Soros funded those organizations. You can’t do it can you???? Heh Heh, if you could have, you would have. You are a fraud.

      • eyeswideopen

        WHAT NO COMMENTS ON THE FRAUD THAT THE REPUBS TRIED TO FORCE ON THE COUNTRY??? When you can admit that the repubs are equally dirty, maybe the hypocrisy will dawn on you all. You can always FOLLOW THE MONEY to see the illegal activities of both parties. The arrogrance of thinking that the repub party is clean is why more people are becoming Independents.

        • eyeswideopen

          Keith, listen most of us understand that the right wing authoritarians thinking is such that they can’t absorb facts that disagree with their mantras. We post info on this site to allow those who haven’t been fully indoctrinated to view information, and maybe just maybe have a moment of claritiy and start researching for themselves instead of being spoon fed the repub/conservative talking points Via Fox’s entertainment specialists. To quote David Frumm
          We always thought that Fox was working for us, Now we find out, that we are working for Fox. That little statement got him fired from his job that he has had for seven years. Shows how radical your beliefs are. No one can stop goose stepping or have an independent thought or you will be made to pay…

            Keith, nay, I am just like the rest of you, except I have a carry permit for mine. How about you? Keith, you don’t frighten me, the fear tactics that the right uses remind me of the school yard bullies.You act like unruly children who didn’t get their share of candy, or you are afraid that someone else might get just as much. Pathetic. People on this site have admitted they are on SS disability, medicare, medicaid and yet you begrudge anyone else from getting healthcare. You are under the impression that only lazy, or unemployed don’t have insurance. You need to take a look at those on this site that are one hospital visit from needing government help. I don’t understand how they can call themselves Christians. Don’t remember Jesus, saying, get all the money you can and hoard it, don’t let anyone have any benefits that you have, and be nasty, stingey, and hateful to your brothers in need.

          • denniso

            Keith…how old are you? 15? You make no points at all and can only hurl insults and call names…very juvenile and stupid and you can’t win many arguments like that. If you are only 15,there’s time to learn civil behaviour when you speak to adults.

          • eyeswideopen

            Keith, are you the one that just got kicked off of newsvine? If it is you, you were beyond civil. I see you have no control of your temper.

  • s c

    If ACORN disappears (don’t hold your breath), that’s great. However, it’s a good idea to try and understand the devious, diabolical thinking behind groups like ACORN.
    I would be surprised if similar groups don’t spring up. After all, America can’t be properly ‘blessed’ with ‘social justice’ and other starry-eyed, delusional schemes if groups like ACORN don’t exist.
    The one thing these kookoids don’t deal in is truth. As a result, it helps to on guard, lest you plan to take your chances via good intentions. In this world, good intentions act like slow-actng poisons. Until we see what happens, good riddance to ACORN. May it return to hell where it was created.

      Connecting dots: ‘ACORN’s Man in the White House’
      Topics: Political News and commentaries

      Mathew Vaduum writes that newly discovered evidence shows the radical advocacy group ACORN has a man in the Obama White House:

      This power behind the throne is longtime ACORN operative Patrick Gaspard. He holds the title of White House political affairs director, the same title Karl Rove held in President Bush’s White House.

      Evidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration, Gaspard was ACORN boss Bertha Lewis’s political director in New York.

    Subject: FW: Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    As a widow of a military retiree, who stood with her husband for over 20 years while he served this country (which was the greatest in the world until this Congress and President took over), I have to say I agree. Shirley

    As a retired military man that have given over twenty-seven years of my life to my country, I truly feel that what this
    Country needs most is a new amendment to the Constitution . I am recommending that we add the 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Congressman, Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman. Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

    This 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES Will apply to all passed, present and future
    congressman, Senators And Representatives.
    Just think of all the money this would save the tax payers!!!!!

    • Richard Martin II

      What a great idea. I would support this but it, unfortunately, would never fly.

    • eyeswideopen

      Mr. Graham, why don’t you also propose that if we catch them intentionally lying to gain political advantage or points, they will be given one warning, then it is see ya later? The repubs take an oath to not raise taxes, why can’t we have everyone sign an oath not to lie? The are supposed to be representing us, and I don’t lie, so when they do, they should be removed from office. It is easy to fact check things today prior to speaking outlandish things.

  • Kevin A

    I will believe this when I see it. ACORN is like one of George Romero’s zombies – they just keep getting up. I had my fill of ACORN back in the 80′s as a mortgage loan officer. They kept pressuring us to make loans to people that were totally unqualified to by a home, but kept inisiting that they “deserved” housing. [as long as someone else pays for it]

    Death to ACORN…but as it was said, until George Soros runs out of money or gets assassinated, these people will regroup in some form or another.

    • s c

      Here’s a little hint for you, KevinA. If you want to get rid of Soros (put him out of business, etc.) find a way to FORCE him to invest in T bills, dollars or invest his money on Wall Street.
      Soros and people like him don’t get filthy rich by investing in predictable ways. Soros has to rely on insiders and legions of prosties inside many different governments.
      He uses people like Obummer and Gore as useful idiots. He gets filthy rich, and they get easy votes and job security.

      • JeffH

        Well a good thing is that Soros is a miserable old man, who’s life on this earth won’t last forever. He’ll join his comrades to roast marshnallows and hot dogs in the dungeon of flickering flames forever.

          George Soros: Anti-Gunner Who Would Remake America.
          Soros is intent on making American sovereignty subject to international will. He calls America`s actions to protect its citizens from terrorism as “supremacist.” In its place he would have the U.S. adopt the “Soros doctrine.” Under the Soros doctrine, U.S. interests would be replaced by international “collective action.” His support for international gun bans fits hand in glove with his vision of an America subservient to an international collective will.

          With his vast fortune to bankroll his activities, it is clear that Soros wants not only to be the king-maker, but to set American policies to his liking in a nation remade to suit his extremist vision.

You need to work hard for what you want and give some of what you have to help others.

    ACORN will be back – We need to start teaching our children the truth about life.

      Good Heavens, Melinda, how did you buy into that “Oh, the world owes me a livin’” silliness? (Reference to a Walt Disney cartoon, The Ant and The Grasshopper.) At least you now see the truth. I am currently living in a city that is based on ‘entitlements’. What these custard headed liberals do not realize is that the only things we are entitled to are the ones we pay for with sweat and tears. -Oh, and also a grave – unless Fate lets our bones rot unburied. It’s time we kicked out the believers in fairy tales. Tell the people in Haiti that the world owes them a living. Look up and scan the sky carefully. Do you see any pie up there? Then stop listening to all those self serving crooks who call themselves politicians that are promising things they could not deliver even if they intended to.

    Groups like ACORN could never exist if it wasn’t for the greed of past Presidents (and the present one), who choose to repay political donators, like AIG, & Global entities such as Soros. The Clintons perfected “NETWORKING” all over the world,and George Bush Jr. wasn’t smart enough to get rid of the entrenched political appointees by the Clintons when he entered the Presidency. They worked against him. George Wallace said it many years ago: “There’s not a dimes difference between the two parties”,….. (Democrat and Republican).{This is why Scooter Libby was pardoned after stealing confidential ‘TOP SECRET’ Clinton material literature and hiding it in his underwear}. J. Edgar Hoover used to put out a yearly white paper listing all the subversive groups working against the United States. I know ACORN would have been listed, and George Soros would not be in “back channel” power. I doubt if such a paper even exists anymore. The corruption is now GLOBAL.

      Poor Scooter, he’s now accused of stealing documnets.

      We are slowing growing into a NEW WORLD ORDER and I believe our govt. is pushing for it. They’ll find a way to get their hands into this one way or the other and create another organization that people will fall for. Americans, let’s stop being so naive. Maybe it’s time for us to all pray, no matter what religion, to put a stop to the way our govt. is being run. Though they are trying to ban prayers, doesn’t mean we can’t stop praying privately.

      • Robert

        You’re definitely right Annie. And it’s all in the Books of Revelation in the Bible. I honestly believe we’re living in the last days. I don’t believe Obama is the anti-Christ. I don’t believe he’s smart enough to be the anti-Christ although plenty of fools out there worship him as if he’s some sort of God even though he’s nothing but another two-bit communist wanna be dictator. Every time I hear these politicians start yapping and harping on their “New World Order” or their “global economy” it sends a shiver down my spine because anybody who knows anything about the Bible realizes they’re talking about the evil one world govt. spoken of in Revelation.

  • Warrior

    Of course. Some will end up working for the IRS and some will get their edumacation loans from the gov and will take advantage of that nice affirmative action provision in the healthcare bill that states any edumacation entity that takes gov money must employ affirm action. This is good because we all know there are not going to be enough doctors so the whole profession will be dumbed down. In a few short years you will not be able to see a doctor, you will be treated by “clinicians” These clinicians will be none other than……..(drum roll)Little Acorn Offspring!

    • Publius

      Yes, and “great oaks from little acorns grow”. But in this case what is coming up is poison ivy.

      • Warrior

        I almost forgot to inform you, the clinicians will also be UNION! Just a marvelous plan afoot!

        • s c

          Warrior, I don’t know about you, but I’d like to think that the education people SHOULD have by the time they’re done with medical school (and an internship and a residency), they’d be able to see what a union is really worth before someone asks them [OR TELLS THEM] to join a frickin’ union. No one has to be another Einstein to know what that will do to healthcare in America if MDs are union members.
          That will be the proverbial final nail in healthcare’s coffin. Is this the last phase of Obummer’s hope and change SCAM?
          Duh is duh is duh. NO to unions for MDs. NO to any make me rich at your expense, don’t call me a thug or I’ll hurt you, screw Detroit, anti-competition, I’m special, money-grubbing, power-at-any cost, you have to please me 24/7 sons and daughters of Lenin and Marx.
          After all these years, how can anyone look at a union and see something good in them – or their parasitic, vote-sucking, prostie chums in Washington?

          • Warrior

            Maybe MD’s won’t succumb but you can bet everyone else in health care will be unionized.

  • Hello?

    Well, Acorn has already did too much damage by helping elect Obama. We have been sleeping too long. We no longer have a Democratic party, it has been infiltrated by Socialists, Marxists and Communists. What a shame, it is like Cancer, it grows in our body not to be detected until it has taken over. The U.N. is our most dangerous enemy right now and are trying to force a world wide arms ban. At the very least, most of realistic minded people have had their blinders removed. These Socialists alias Democrats have ruined our economy by forcing the banks to loan money to people that they knew that could not afford it and this was no mistake, { Buying votes with working people’s hard earned tax dollars.} The only way that you can take over a country is to cripple their economy. Don’t think that this was an accident. The real Democratic party that we have known has been hijacked right before our eyes and the Republicans are not much better. We need a Patroit in the White House for a change if it is not too late. I hope there is a fix for this, if not we are in deep crap. Please join the N.R.A. and help them fight for our rights to bear arms. Pray a lot! Do a little reasearch, check out the bill that Clinton signed in 1999, I think that it was called the equal housing act. You did not know that you were making more than one mortgage payment did you? Please do a lot of research before you go to the polls next time and if you are not informed, DON’T VOTE, to may just shoot yourself in the head without knowing it.

    I apologizes to “Poor Scooter”. You are correct, (see my 7:24 a.m. rantings!). It WAS poor Sandy Berger, who has moved up Hillarys’ corrupt ladder. They say good journalism is about creating controversy and getting people to think. I see we have some “thinkers” on this blog, and some stinkers in Big Global Government. Check out June/July three part series by Diane Alden, who used to write for NewsMax.com. Read in the ARCHIVES section on those dates about opening up the borders of Canada and Mexico. This plan was signed by Bush, Fox, and the head of Canada, back then. Don’t think this will go away. Trans Canada is trying to open trucking ferries from Canada to Maine, Windmill for electricity, Port Facilities for LPG, and getting 60% return on any electrical power, while sticking Maine with much of the cost, through cooperation with Senator Collins and Governor Baldacci, all done under the radar, in the fine print/add on to several bonds pushed through. The Japanese are trying to push out the fishing industry in Portland, Maine through influence of FEDERAL fishing restriction decisions. The fishing industry is worth one half billion, while the tourist industry, (if the Japanese businessmen move in to develop the Portland pier area), is worth several billions. M-mmm! One side of the scale 1/2 Billion, the other side of the scale several billion, not to mention a huge, future PORT facility. A new Los Angeles or a new N.Y. City port. Meanwhile Nestle a Global Water rights company, not your chocolate company anymore, is secretly buying up water rights, (7 towns in Maine), all over the country and the world. Goldman Sachs is buying up water companies, all in the background. See the DVD “Blue Gold…..”future water wars”. What is happening in YOUR state?

    • Warrior

      Ah yes, and now the propaganda is beginning to surface about the finite amount of fresh water and who controls and uses it. Supposedly, only nine countries control the little fresh water we have and the alarmist have begun to release their inrefutable data about how each american use 6 quadrillion gals each minute to grow oats. Now each one of us have a water footprint much like our carbon footprint.

      We should seek to legislate this immediately. Maybe it could be called “Shower Cap and Tax”!

            OK, Warrior, give me your address but don’t let it get away from you next time, boil it and re-use it. I guess you drink re-cycled lake water full of clorine. Enjoy! My water comes from the Mountains of Virginia and neighbors a half mile away and there is no bacteria.

          I didn’t but I am from his area so I fully understand what fraud has been perpetrated upon the entire country.

          • Hello?

            Warrior , I apoligise as it seems you are an ally and not an enemy. Guess we can’t control where we were born. Actually I live in NC, piedmont area but I have several spots I can move. I bought a farm in VA in 1983 for this very reason and quite frankly, I thought that we would be in trouble long before now. I would not want to be in a large city when it really gets bad, especially illinois, New York, etc. No one will likely come to the wilderness looking for much and as it seems no one had better come to this area in an unfriendly manner. Goes back fifty years when people helped out each other and are self sufficent and a long way from dumb as some may think. I like V.A. better than N.C. by a long shot. We are trying to get the Attorney General to file a law suit on this Obama care but this bunch probably will not.

        • Warrior

          Maybe I can rent your farm in VA. My wife always wanted her own horse but there no way I would have one here, four legged animals get to vote twice and I wouldn’t trust that the horse would vote conservative. (some Ill dem would bribe him/her)!

          • Hello?

            Always room for a Patriot down here! I have a deep feeling that all this Obama stuff goes a lot deeper than anyone , Liberal or Conservative can even imagine. There is a great trogsn horse out there that most people have not even dreamed of unless we study God’s word.

        • Warrior

          Nope, it’s just the good old Chicago Way. Why do you think Chicago has been under democratic control for over 60 years straight? Patronage, graph, corruption, unions, more patronage, keep the minorities bottled up, more patronage, give a few minorities a couple of crumbs, kiss Jessie’s ass a little to keep the minorities in line, oh, let’s have about 50 corrupt aldercreatures, more patronage, and let’s have a corrupt state legislature run out of crook county.

          Hey – this is the perfect recipe to control. I’m pretty sure NY, LA, and every one of the major blue state cities is operating the same way. Also interesting is the fiscal condition of these areas as well, why do you think that is?

          • Robert

            And not only the big cities in the blue states either Warrior. I live halfway between Houston and New Orleans and corruption is rampant in both cities, especially left wing Commiecrat controlled New Orleans. The rest of Louisiana is conservative, but those inner city New Orleans morons would eat dog feces if Obama told them to.

They are the enemy.

      • JeffH

        ACORN hasn’t changed its name. ACORN International has.
        Here’s the deal:

        ACORN International, now Community Organizations International on paper (but not on the web yet), is the breakaway baby of disgraced ACORN founder Wade Rathke — who clung to the outfit after being deposed from ACORN over his brother Dale’s embezzlement of nearly $1 million. Acorn International is not new. It’s been around since at least 2004. In addition to his world travel for the organization, Rathke blogs and mobilizes at “Chief Organizer.org,” his old title at ACORN, and still appears to be using the ACORN name on his Twitter account. His obstinate refusal to leave has caused massive heartburn on the Left — and they’ve tried hard to keep all the legal machinations hush-hush.

        Inside ACORN, the new generation of power brokers has been fighting for a year to wrest control of the ACORN empire from the Rathkes.

    Like the article said, several affiliate broke away and are still operating under other names. I believe that that is what ACORN is really going to do. They will just change their name and continue to operate and continue to get funding from our tax dollars. They are like bad breath. They refuse to go away.

  • eddie47d

    Hello,Tea Partiers and those to listen to Fox and all their talking heads. First of all Acorn got it’s self into trouble,especially in the housing sector. Second, the right also has friends in very low places.They love break ins and other under the radar tactics. Militia member and Tea Party member (vanerdeough) encourged his listeners to go out and sabotage Democrates where ever they are. Mainly those who voted for the Healthcare bill. His objective was to break all the windows at Democrates Party Headquaters and other shinanigans. If this sounds familiar, think back to Krystal Nights in Germany where Jews were intimidated. This American instigator also had the gas line to a Rep.Perriello’s house cut. What this person did is not much different than what comes out of the mouths of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck,or even Ann Coulter.

    • JeffH

      eddie47, d unmitigated liberal hack has nothing better to do than lash out at the Tea Party and militia(?0 whatever that might be other than eddie’s imagination at work. Your accusations are unfounded, but you assumptions are typicaly assinine, which pretty much covers what you are. Based on your comments, we can expect an arrest of vanerdeough, whomever that might be ’cause I can’t find ant referances online, and a conviction in a court of law, not in your little liberal pea brained mind.

      Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., called it “an effort to kind of hijack the debate by coercive elements. I’m glad the Republican leadership colleagues denounce it. But they were very late to do that.”

      “It is unacceptable in America,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who exhorted angry citizens to channel their rage into voter registration.
      The vandalism and threats surprised a researcher at a think tank that monitors extremist groups.

      “I think it is astounding that we are seeing this wave of vigilantism,” said Mark Potok of the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center.

      It would seem that others that aren’t associated with Tea Party groups are very upset with Congress and the Health Care passage and siging.

        JeffH,
        Tell pain in the Ass eddie to think back to the night od the convention where the dems overturned cars, accosted people on the street, broke out windows, and all kinds of other liberal antics that should have landed them in jail but they got very lucky that the cops in that area had been warned away!!!

        • JeffH

          Oh so true wise one.

    • Warrior

      eddie,
      what is becoming clearer each day is that it is certainly NOT Beck, Coulter, Palin, Limbaugh or any other conservative thinker or expouser that we need to worry about. I do not believe any of them has threatened my rights or freedoms. Please advise me if they have threatened your liberties.

    • eyeswideopen

      eddie, while they are all blaming the Dems for the mortgage reform act, maybe checking the facts would show them that one of their own Republican Donald Riegle sponsored S.2733 which was the 1992 Reform Act. He was also part of the Keating five in the banking scandal during the 80′s Savings and Loan Scandal. Easy to check facts.
      But let’s not let facts get in the way of the attacks.

          Warrior, every time one of you radicals spews hate and threaten violence it threatens my liberties. Why do you ask, you are selfish and don’t agree with the Constitution which protects my rights, so why bother asking?

      eddie47d,
      You have got to be kidding me? The left is famous for violence gee remember the GOP. convention in MPLS, I do, the left was making bombs throwing cement blocks from a bridge unto cars below, making feces and piss bombs. overturning cars. Come on you really have alot of nerve you know that?

  • Russell Ricks

    Wrong is wrong, evil is evil, no matter how you cut it. What Acorn has done is pure evil. They got their just reward. However, I think they were only a small part of a bigger world-wide evil culvert secret mechanism that continues to work in darkness. Even though our country is bound for great trials ahead, Truth and Right, Principle and the laws of Natures God will ultimately win in the end. These evil conspirators will receive their just reward. Great and terrible it will be for them and it will be by God’s own hand. The day is prophesied to come when the great cities of the eastern United States will be left desolate. The buildings may stand, but the people will be wiped out and it will be because of their own wickedness!

    Jeff H.; I think most of America has heard of these window breakings so my accusations are founded. I did spell his name wrong and will apoligize for that. It’s Mike Vanderboegh.

    • JeffH

      eddie47d…if you are so quick in your assumptions, judgment and accusation and the blame, don’t forget the leftist liberal radicals that make threats also. This radical blogger represents no one but himself and to accuse the Tea Party of these crimes represents your mindset as well.
      How can I get to your think tank, turn left at the Unicorn or left at the Rainbow?
      I would also like to hear from you about those radical zealots that have been making unmitigated threats to Republicans. Oh, forgot, that would expose you for what you are!
      People like yourself and the media bring attention to these fools by acknowledging them. That acknowledgement fuels their hate. The proper authorities will do their jobs and the culprits will be caught and dealt with accordingly.

      • JeffH

        Here are some comments by Glen Beck that speak volumes, but will be dismissed by Democrats and the lefties as just another “insane” Beck rant:
        Beck: Obama is “poking and prodding” people to commit violence. … “They need you to be violent. They are begging for it.” On his March 24 Fox News show, Glenn Beck referenced the “crazy tea baggers in the streets” and said, “Why would a government continue to poke you and poke you and poke you and poke you? Why would they say these things? Why have these people said these things about good Americans?” Beck later said: “This might be the most dangerous monologue I’ve ever done, because I am telling you now — they need you to be violent. They are begging for it. You’re being set-up. Do not give them what they want.” [Glenn Beck, 3/24/10]

        • JeffH

          This statement says it all, and it most certainly encourage any kind of violent response.
          ” they need you to be violent. They are begging for it. You’re being set-up. Do not give them what they want.” [Glenn Beck, 3/24/10]

          • TIME

            Hi Jeff, As most of you know I don’t have cable TV and have not seen Mr. Beck until just this week on TV.
            This is my view of Mr. Glen Beck, He is a “fine Gentleman” who has from everything I have seen thus far he has “exposed 100% TRUTH” that {can’t be disputed} by anyone.

            So as I see it anyone who has an issue with Mr. Beck doing what he is doing is a “Marxist who just will not admit that they are.”

            On that note anyone who may feel differantly, Disprove anything Mr. Beck has said, he has used teh very words spoken by persons whom he is exposing as the Marxist they are.

            He has a (Red Phone) as in hot line for BarryO to call him if he is wrong, so BarryO if he is wrong why not call him.

            Bravo; Mr.Glen Beck!

          Time, very good observation. You also do your homework. Beck, like everyone on earth, has, I’m sure made some mistakes in his life. He is an educator and is far wiser than the lefty libs and progressive dems give him credit for. You don’t have the amazing surge in listernership and popularity by being stupid. Eventually people begin would not trust you, as has happened with the might O’man.

      eddie47d, thanks for the spelling correction and thanks for giving me this guys name so I can see for myself what a radical he is. He in no way represents the masses of conservative, liberal, dems or repubs in this country, fortunately. You, on the otherhand, have made through your comments accusations that represent your own kind of radicalisms.

      • Barb

        Just heard on the news on my way home at 1:30 PM today that several of the vandalism reports attributed to the so called angry right has turned out to be UNFOUNDED. In other words NOT TRUE! HMMMMM!!!! Seems we violent gray haired terrorists aren’t so violent after all! We are too smart for that we will leave violent protesting to the libs. Sorry eddie but your accusations aren’t founded!!!! In case you are wonder eddie it was on ABC news on the radio!

          Barb, my my, that would seem to dicredit the accusers if it is true.

            Good People and you know who you are, Please resist any form of violence toward any of these marxist freaks, even on this sight.

            We can, and will take back this country in a peace full way.
            So I beg of you all don’t get in to any acts that can be construed as violence. BarryO wants that reaction from all of us.

            They can call us names who cares I mean really who cares let these insults bounce off you like rain on a ducks back.

            As far as the left winged buffoons that post here, form this day forward all of us need to not respond to them at all. Let them rant with the standard rhetoric.

            Work on your friends and neighbors, people that you can talk with in person get them to watch Mr. Glen Beck, let them ask questions then answer them with pure TRUTH and Pure LOGIC.

            Again we can win our country back.

            Let stay on target, and work to get solid American CORE value Congress and Senate people, as well even in your home town local mayor’s etc..

            Ask them questions solid questions about what they how they will fix the problems we face now, if you think they are just giving you a talk job, go to the next one.

            And don’t fall for the clean cut look any more either, thats not always a positive sign, look at BarryO need I say more.

    The Dems and liberal progressives of both parties think the TBaggers are nothing but “a bunch of dumb racist rednecks.” From what I saw on local news reports of the last Tea Party on West Capitol Hill the day before the dreaded HCR bill was horrendously passed was a group of TBaggers that looked tired; and as if they pretty much knew and were resigned to the outcome; yet had not given up the fight. I also saw BamaThugs bullying, harassing, and pushing the TBagers around and some Dem congressmen giving them the bums rush. No one other than their Dem accusers ever saw or heard them spit or address a congress person with the N word. No, this was a fabrication of the left to discredit the TBaggers. So, Becks crazed advice is good; because the more the TBaggers ignore the Dems lethal bait; the better they look; and the worse the Dems look. If this battle can be won; it will be won by patience, logic, control, and intelligent and effective strategies; and never by violence. Altho, it is hypocrital for the Dems to complain of violence as they browbeat, bullied, and threatend captive congress persons to say yes to get their way

    • Warrior

      Merl,

      You just gotta laugh a little, the Newsmax poll indicated 40% of respondents believe O to be a socialist. The guy talks, walks, acts like a socialist and surrounds himself with socialists but only 40% believe he is one?????????????????????????? Now that’s scary.

        • eyeswideopen

          Joe, what one of your own being disrespectful ??? Meanwhile, like an idiot, I still give them respect by calling them the tea partiers. Must be the way I was raised.

  • Merl Elton

    It is dispicable, sickening, and disgusting that people like Stupak betrayed their constituents because of liberal thugs’ threats to their families and their jobs. If people like Stupak had held out and just kept saying no to this bill; then there would have been no dirty dealings. Does Stupak really think the political operatives would really have killed him; or was he held hostage and brainwashed into believing that like other members who turned coats? If he had held out, he would have got the money he wanted, the respect of his constituents, and no dirty money and deals would have been accepted.
    The Dems therefore have no legs to stand on when calling anyone violent. If the liberal Dems want to see violence, they should look in the mirror.

    • chuck b

      merl elton

      your advise sounds like the same rhetoric the john birch society used back in the sixties. they wanted to educate people in the danger of marxism, they made speeches, books and some movies. for the most part seemed well versed and knew what they were talking about. the media saw the danger and immediately started ridiculing and calling them names. it didn;t take long before they ran the birchers out of town.
      and they are starting to do the same to the tea party’ers. the lesson here is you can’t be cordial to these people, they were activist from the sixties and they give no ground, they have only one goal and that is to destroy conservatism and finish their goal of socializing and moving this country to marxism.they have the power of the media an most of the unions, take a look at andrew stern, head of the seiu, he is barry’s good friend and calls at the white house more than most, this is the second largest union in the u.s. and the first is the nea. you know where they stand. so now tell me, are we supposed to be nice and try to talk logical to this group hoping to change their mind, i think not.you only have to look at the bush presidency and see if you think trying to get along works, that was the bush problem and he gave us this jackass we have as president.i say fight fire with fire, its time we stand our ground and run the marxist out of town.

      • JeffH

        chuck b, I disagree with your comment “they are starting to do the same to the tea party’ers.” It ain’t gonna happen. Every assault on the Tea Party movement, which is not a political party, is an assault on everday, freedom loving, tax paying Americans. Attack I say, because the end result will be a further strengthening of the Americans resolve and the belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    A woman in York County Maine who holds Selectman Status in the town of York, was fired and then told the person who fired her didn’t have the power to dismiss her, so a special town meeting will be held in order to “hold court”. Her offense? Sending a derogatory email to Michele Obama. It doesn’t seem fair when one can burn the American Flag, and not face arrest but sending an email can get you fired. The news story said it was about comparing Michele to a monkey, and was sent on a private computer not an official town of York computer. From what little the news people showed of the email it was only implied, but then it’s like the gas line cut on the barbecue of a Congressional Democrat, the implication was that it was a gas line to the house. Half truths are lies.

  • Gary

    I see a lot argument about who’s money is doing what. This is a distraction. Lets take a look at what the big money and influence is TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH.

    America was founded on sound principles and very well defined in the constitution and Bill of Rights. We stand on the order of Law in this nation. Law based on the freedoms granted by God, and defined in the Constitution.

    Now, you have two major efforts underway in America. The first, to “progressively” change what America was founded on and what has made her so great. The other, to defend and return America to her founding fathers principles and return to living under the Constitution the way it was written and intended.

    So it matters little “who” is using “what” money to make things happen. What does matter is what is happening. There lies the battle folks. Do we turn this nation into another third world socialist nation, or do we retain the greatness and freedoms that so many paid such a high price to preserve? It’s a war of principle. Failure is not option. America MUST return to it’s core principles or you can rest assured we will be nothing.

    Our so called conservative politicians are selling us out. They put on a show in front of the cameras, and then secretly pull in pork for their states, after promises from the “red phone”, back channel. The Health Care bill could have been defeated much earlier but Senator Snowe from Maine, who is a Republican, cast the deciding vote to allow it to “go forward”. Between her votes and Senator Suzan Collins votes ,along the way, this bill has been fabricated and blossomed from 1200 pages to over 2500 pages. Now at the last moment they put on a show and voted with the other Republicans to kill it. Too little too late. Meanwhile the Federal grant money has been pouring into Maine. We just got approval from King Obama for emergency flood assistance. Remember it’s not what they say, it’s what they put into legislation. Also it’s about whether they uphold the law,…. I.E. Sandy Berger, stealing top secret files to hide Clinton miss deeds, being caught red handed with documents in his underwear on Federal property, …and getting off “Scott Free”. Write, email,and call your Congressman and Senators, as well writing in these blogs.
