I really don't see how they have a case against FOX.

FOX didn't do anything but break the story. ACORN needs to have all federal funds stripped from them. Man what a screwed up world we live in.

They don't have a leg to stand on. But what is the alternative?

Admitting they were wrong? C'mon!

Yea, they can't admit they are a criminal organization they can only play the race card and disrespect real victims of racism while simultaneously saying they are champions of the poor, minorities, and the working class.

I wonder if FOX will counter sue for slander calling them racist. Now that would be show to watch.

I am going to start an organization called Pinecone.

It will be funded by Republicans and other conservative organizations.

We are going to give advice on child prostitution and how to commit tax fraud.

When MSNBC and CNN bump into each other to report the story first, I wonder how it will all go down?

Honestly, I think providing information on how to get away with tax fraud as it relates to child prostitution; that should trump recording people illegally by not first asking for their permission.

When a crime is committed to expose a bigger crime, the smaller crime should be thrown out.

ACORN is a government funded organization that has employees who gave advice on tax fraud as it relates to child prostitution. This should be a major, Major, MAJOR story.

When Food Lion was recorded rolling the expiration dates on their meat and pouring chemicals on it at one store, it almost bankrupted the company. They ended up shutting down about 50% of it's stores.

It's one thing to have a bad employee. But this kind of stuff is off the chart. Why is this organization still in business?

I will begin to pray that putting common sense back in our government will NOT require violence.

See my signature and avatar. Peace until War.

You bring up a good point, what are they doing for the poor? The minorities? It appears to me, at least, that they are causing more harm for those that actually need their services.

But when have they actually cared about those that actually need their services? It seems like this has been a quasi-political organization from the start.

Can you sign me up? I have all these pesky drugs and guns I need to unload, but don't know how to start a sub-chapter S to get it started.

Thanks for coming to Pinecone.

We'll set up two companies. The first will be a vitamin retailer. The second will be a scrap metal vendor.

And if you have children or illegal aliens working for you, train them to keep quiet.

Oh, let me give you a 50% discount. Don't ask me why. I have no idea what I'm doing anyway?

And what ever you do, don't talk to any Democrats or MSNBC. They don't like us.

Edit to add: The lady playing the prostitute used the name of .........(wait for it).........Kenya! That should have turned on a light bulb in a smart person's head.

Watching an interview on FOX and they (the fimmakers) stated that they had gone to 5 other places. (Other than the two on film)

Look forward to those as well.

Even if they didn't "help" the pimp and prostitute it means that right now 2/7 places will. That means 28% are going to help abet criminal activity.

What a wonderful record for a government-funded agency.

Community organizers should feel soooo proud.

This is bigger than many people think. From what I have heard, all calls to investigate at a congretional level against ACORN, has been stopped. I think that this is going to go blow up in a few peoples faces, and when the truth comes out it is going to cause embarassment for people that many either suspect or bring out suprises. Myself I have written to both of my Senators and demanded that they support a congretional investigation for such, and if need be, may have to get with others to picket and protest outside of ACORNS office, and see what comes out of that.

It's going to be fun to watch. Much agreed. John Conyers even stated that he was going to investigate but was called off by the "powers that be."

Am looking for supporting data now.

It explains why they're suing FOX - ACORN is above investigation, above accountability, above questioning, and FOX did the unthinkable.

They reported their misdeeds and criminal acts, which in this day and age, if your criminal acts are protected by criminals in office, you can get away with anything. ACORN is above the law.

Further, why am I not surprised that the government protects an organization that promotes child prosititution? Gee-wiz George, I'd put those people in jail fast enough to cause a sonic boom, same as those in power would IF they weren't interested in such a thing.

That pretty much reaffirms what I've thought for years.

Nice try Acorn.

You are guilty as hell.
James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles should get the Pulitzer Prize for exposing the
corrupt Acorn disgrace.

They do not have a case.
This is an air ball.
Those tapes are indefensible.
I hope we see another one soon.

Easy. Why erase a tax base? Same for soda. He knows people are still going to drink it. He doesn't WANT to negate more money coming in.

Jeff and Hannah will not get the Pulitzer.

They WILL get audited.

They will get investigated.

They will get smeared by the media.

They are white. They will be branded as racists.

Their lives will be threatened.

Their families will be threatened.

Late night comics will make fun of them.

There will be protests against them.

I know it's not up to par with 2012 predictions, but this I can gurantee!

James and Hannah will soon get hired and promoted by Fox News!
James is the new Sean Hannity.
Hannah is the new Ann Coulter.
Getting attacked by the left comes with the job.
It will only make them stronger.

If ACORN was a right wing group they would have been raided and every branch shut down by the FBI and it's senior staff all sent off to federal correctional facilities.

Obama has Holder drop the investigation into the Black Panther terrorist carrying out voter intimidation with a billy club and now he wont let an investigation into ACORN? This trail of corruption goes all the way to the Oval Office folks. Obama has got to go.

There will have to be an investigation.
We have seen 2 tapes. I think a 3rd is on the way.
