Thanks for the link, I didn't see this original post.

Absolutely unreal. I suppose no investigation will ever be in order.

The organisation ACORN isn't even written in the stimulous bill.

Seriously before you post anything from Fox News, or someone called newsmax do a google search. Myself I'd be embarrased to post something so patently untrue. If Fox told you martians were invading would you believe them. Is it any coincidence that no respectable media ran with this story? Good Grief. I log on here for some entertainment and find this?

The bill is not going to state "who" gets money. What the bill will state is "what" types of organizations and companies will be eligable to recieve funds. There was a push for a type of funded program in which ACORN would be eligable to recieve funds. Again, its one of those deals where if it is not brought into the light would it happen? Who knows, but should people sit around and just wait to find out?

Seriously, I don't need news source advice from you.

Ditto. Civet, do your homework and come up with some facts or logic to refute what has been presented. America has had enough of empty left-wing rhetoric. Now that the left is in power, we actually expect it to grow up, answer questions, present facts, justify itself, and present itself with some maturity -- this includes you.

Myself, I'd be embarrassed if I couldn't put together an argument any better than you.

So we agree. The bill says nothing at all about giving acorn 5 billion and saying so was "untrue" (I'm being kind)

JTapia I think you do need some advice on sources, otherwise you would chose with a little more thought. Since when is posting untrue stories a good thing?
