    ACORN's sourcing - it is a matter of public record. To answer your question, yes I am and it is disgusting that any thought remains to continue any of it. Are you aware of what a few of the investigations are showing? Are you aware that a relative of one of the big guys stole $1,000,000 and got away with - with the big guy's blessing. Are you?

    These highly edited, amateur videos proved that? Really? Where?



    Have you any clue as to what percentage of ACORN's funding is derived from public funds?



    You, the one who has no appreciation for the equal application of blind justice can say this with a straight face? Horse-hockey!

    Obviously, some would prefer to stretch out in the back seat while others get out to push the vehicle at a time when this country needs all hands on deck.
    Thats right! At least they are doing something. Who cares if they are leaking money and committing crimes. It's the intent that matters right? And their intentions are good. Who cares if they violate laws. Thats just not the point. They are trying to make a difference.

    Awesome. One can always count on your positive and uplifting commentary. You should write children's books.

    How many BILLIONS are we still paying Black Water for shooting civilians and child prostitution? Why do we even have them there to do the job our own military is fully capable of doing?

    You forgot the whole Crusade thing. Why not throw that in there as long as we're discussing unproven allegations? If they did these things the organization should not only be defunded but dissolved and the perpetrators imprisoned. Just like ACORN.

    Organizations that abide by the law will fill in the gaps. What would you rather see happen?

    Please name some of those orgs whom you would have fill those opportunistic gaps?

    What would your objection to that goal be? If any.

    What do you think my "objective" is? And what do you think that objective's "logical conclusion" would be?

    It appears you believe you've deduced quite a lot about me, my integrity and my objectives. Would you like to tell us what you believe you've deduced and why you think my objectives would be shocking?

    Shy? I'm just trying to understand what you think is going on here. Would you care to be specific?

    Why are you arguing with me using statements I didn't make? And why aren't you answering my inquiries about what it is you believe to have deduced about me, my integrity and my objectives? You clearly seem to have given it quite a bit of thought.

    If that were true then why argue at all if you have no point to argue? Unless you think you do have a point, which is what I'm asking you to provide.

    This is not an academic exercise. Why not answer the direct questions before you without deflecting responsibility? Seems that would be a much more efficient use of time. IMO, of course.
    Direct questions with incorrect assumptions cannot be answered as stated. That is academic. That's why its important to make sure your assumptions are correct. The only way I can do this without your cooperation is to make assumptions about your point. But that wouldn't get us anywhere, would it?

    Sounds good. But, in reality, I've stated my intent for starting this thread long ago. Its still there if you'd like to look. But since you don't accept that you must think there is some other intent. What is that? And why?

    The question most recently asked: "Who do you support to replace their efforts to register voters among the constituency ACORN previously served?" requires no such assumptions. And the answer is . . .?
    Was that really the question? Or was it part of a larger loaded question?

    The more people like 1thing2add type this insanity and the more liberals defend ACORN, the public option, etc...the happier I get. 1thing2add must really think that the average American is really stupid. Keep on defending ACORN. Keep on making a fool of yourself. This makes me look forward to 2010. Liberals are so happy they won the election that they feel that justifies any absurdity that they say during their leadership. They fool themselves of this so much that they lost touch with reality.

    The American people are waking up. Your ridiculous defense of ACORN and your liberal friends trying to force the public option down our throats with a clear majority against it will be your demise. Keep it up. I can't wait!
