ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census

First there was Obama's attempt to grab the census away from the Department of Commerce. Now ACORN has signed on to help administer it.

Gee...maybe they'll do for the census what they did for voter registration. Amazingly, this has completely escaped the mainstream media. Big surprise there.

But...but...Expatriate, isn't that Fox news? Why everyone knows fox just lies. Only KosTV is reliable! Well maybe Krasny Pravda too. Right? So how can this be? Laugh

Yes, komrade...only politically approved sources of information blessed by the Dear Leader are acceptable to true citizens. I obtained that article from a capitalist sympathizer at great personal risk.

ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census

I have a little game I play lately with any news source. I read until I hit a lie. In this case it was the first sentence.

"one group with a history of voter fraud"

Of course we know there were a grand total of 23 cases involving local elections in West Virginia and Kentucky, and none whatsoever connected to Acorn. That's out of a total of a hundred and how many votes? Funny that those applachian states have problems with local elections, must be Boss Hog running for sherif.

ACORN is a community organising group advocating for the underserved. For that they earn the eternal rath of big money Republican Bankers, so what.

ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census

Once again, you're arguing that we should excuse Jeffrey Dahmer because Curtis LeMay killed more people. I wouldn't support any other fraudulent organization working with the census, either. And voter fraud occurred in far more places than Appalachia.

We're talking about ACORN. This is an organization that was blatantly committing fraud with voter registration. How are we to believe they'd be any different with the census that determines congressional representation.

ACORN is also at the epicenter of the sub-prime mortgage ponzi scheme that got us into this mess in the first place. And now that things are collapsing, their "community service" has embraced sending people to occupy foreclosing homes in violation of the law.

But if you dare to question or oppose them, you're racist.

ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census

I'm less concerned about ACORN being involved than I am the underlying issue of the White House taking over the Census anyway. If there's an actual good reason for it I havn't heard it yet. Has all the outward appearances of a good ol'-fashioned political power grab.. or at least the beginings of one. I've been saying this a lot since Obama took office, but I hope I'm wrong.

ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census

Sage I hate to be the one to state the obvious but the Executive branch does all that stuff. Congress legislates, Executive does, Scotus decides if it's all legal. Been going on for a couple hundred years more or less. If you'd like someone else to do it vote. Oops. We did. Guess those folks that got elected do it.

No need to count Kevin, just take the number of adults and multipy by about .01 then you have the # of nuts, (wing nuts)

Sez you. I never heard of ACORN being convicted of anything, just a bunch of old nutters crying in thier soup.

Cheney was never convicted nor charged with war crimes either but that doesn't stop you from prancing around yelling "war criminal, the sky is falling" now does it.

What is "sez"?

Who "sez?" Laugh Laugh Once again, Civet announces that something never happened because he refuses to accept it. Here are some examples of ACORN's way of doing business:

So you're saying the Census was not, in fact, taken away from the Dept. of Commerce and that the White House has been doing it all along... this story is actually a fabrication? I admit I'm not as up on the news or as knowlegible about what part of the government does what exactly as you appear to be, but I sincerely don't follow what you're saying. Anyway, still looks like a good-ol'-fashioned power grab. And yes, the people voted in are able to do that. Fine. Doesn't make it right.
