ACORN: "This our house now."

ACORN, who inexplicably received $4 billion in the so-called economic stimulus package, has apparantly decided that covert voter fraud in 13 states wasn't enough shenanigans for their taste and has taken up open warfare on the law.

Breaking the padlock off of the front door of a foreclosed property, a representive of ACORN proudly states, "This is our house now." The property, incidentally, has already been sold.

"Tresspassing"? No, that's breaking and entering.

"Civil disobedience"? No, civil disobedience is a protest; an in-action taken against the government, not a bank and certainly not a private property owner.

ACORN is, at its core, a criminal enterprise. The only surprise is that they are so brazen about it now.

Actually, ACORN didn't get any money in the stimulus package. That's a right wing myth that has been debunked all over the place.

By golly, Hawkeye, you may be right about that.

I'd read that several places, googled to find out the amount and found many references.

Thanks for the heads up on that fact.


Q: Does the stimulus bill include a $5.2 billion payoff for ACORN?
I would appreciate having look into whether ACORN will receive $5.23 billion from the Obama stimulus package under the guise of “stabilizing neighborhoods.” I have been bombarded by e-mails from an acquaintance about this. What can you find about this? Thank you.

A: The bill does include funds for which ACORN would be eligible to compete - against hundreds of other groups. But most is for a housing rehabilitation program ACORN says it never applied for in the past and won't in the future.

Now back to the topic at hand.

You will be seeing more and more of this in the near future. People can't afford to lose their houses while the banks hoard all this bailout money that was supposed to be used to help the property owners. Screw the damn banks, and I hope more groups help people stay in their homes. The civil unrest is just in "warm-up" mode. I promise you, you haven't seen anything yet.
