    No, the Constitution is just fine, it's the creeps we voted in that are the problems.

    I caught this on Beck while channel surfing. I stopped to see what what got him into his latest tizzy. I was shocked by the video that was being shown. Then I looked it up on the internet and the video seemed so over the top, with these people not even batting an eye on underage prostitution, I almost thought it was a staged show and not a real incident.

    I'm not ready to tar the entire ACORN organization as a promoter of sex slavery, but at the very least they need to seriously change the way they train and supervise their people.

    Which begs the question, why have the other news.org's completely missed this story? Could it be that they feel it might embarrass their incomparably brilliant, moral, and totally transparent Presedent?... who just so happens to have trained, and fully supports Acorn?

    Naaaaaa.... couldn't be.

    Most people have no idea what a "community organizer" is. I was thinking the media is afraid that depicting such a vivid footage will lead people to say, "So THAT'S community organizing??!"

    In other words, "Community Organizer" suddenly becomes a bad word.

    Would your opinion change if the same thing happened, lets say, in their Washington DC offices also?

    Well guess what? It did.

    Hilarious. The reason this isn't a big deal is because these are individuals who acted stupidly. Did the whole organization act stupidly? No. Just like the American people didn't ask for the Republican congressmen and senators to step down. Since when did 1 or 2 people represent the whole group?

    It's also funny that the same people who hate how big the government is, is complaining about how to save money from going into the government.

    These guys should be fired, but to act as if this is independent of one group of people is laughable at best. But, sure. Continue the spinning and conspiracy theories.

    Maybe you missed it, but that makes 2 offices now.

    But hey, we all know that expecting Obama supporters to put morality, or right and wrong before their Messiah, is nothing but a pipe dream.

    Because the right has been screeching lies about ACORN for years, I don't even pay attention anymore. However, having heard something about this on cnn's headline news this am whilst it was on in the background, I worked up a mild interest in clicking on the link. Seeing the screed's posted, I only managed to skim


    Sounds like another ACORN screaming story to me. Sure, probably some random employee did something bad, and perhaps that person will be arrested, but it doesn't say anything about ACORN to me.

    There is video from two separate offices, on this very thread.

    Nice spin job, why don't you go apply to one of the Networks and help with the blackout.
