    Again you would be wrong; I am guilty of nothing more than pointing out the obvious efforts to lie and distort by a forum member who appears desperate to make this an issue about me and my partisan views when nothing partisan has been made.

    In addition, it is not a cheap shot to call someone correctly a liar when that is what they are doing and have proved that the person is indeed lying by his own admission and words.

    I am curious about your selective outrage and why you haven't asked PogueMoran to stop his attempts at offtopic lies and distortions that have nothing to do with the thread topic; why is that?

    Did any of you people read that article? The pimps met with the sting operators IN a Burger King... nothing is said about the perps working for BK, sheesh!!!

    The five were arrested on Friday night in a Burger King at 79-01 Queens Boulevard in Woodside after Mr. Pun offered to sell sexual services provided by the girls to an undercover detective from the Manhattan South public morals division.

    Acorn on the other hand derives a significant amount of money from the American taxpayer to operate what amounts to a PARTISAN political organization. Everyone should be OUTRAGED by this.

    This would be tantamount to the Government sending millions to the Christian Broadcasting Network; imagine the liberal outrage if that were the case.

    At least $53 million in federal funds have gone to ACORN activists since 1994, and the controversial group could get up to $8.5 billion more tax dollars despite being under investigation for voter registration fraud in a dozen states.

    It's only the Democrats defending Acorn.... and that will get a lot of mileage come next election.

    While you question his selective outrage I questioned yours. You were dismissive of the report the inspector general filed claiming he had a political agenda, calling his conclusions bile. I called you out on it because you were bitching about Acorn yet seemed very dismissive saying no crimes took place over at the department of the interior.

    TD - I don't see him projecting onto you his own behavior, the way you are projecting your own bad behavior onto him. You are the one who is making yourself the issue with your obnoxious behavior, and I'm starting to suspect that that's exactly what you want.

    Exactly. ACORN average 3.5 Million per year in Federal funding.

    Literally, ten of Billions (for our right wing friends there are 10,000 Million in 10 Billion) are unaccounted for by military contractors and the GOP is opposing Federal investigations into where the money went.

    It goes back time and time again to the same root cause.

    Ignorant white, poor and middle class voters who are not sophisticated enough to discern what issues are important to their livelyhoods and what issues are red herrings designed to distract them.

    Here is a wonderful article on how absurd this all is........http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwa...ria/index.html

    Democrats have been flaming law abiding citizens how carry a gun and speak out against the President's lies, all while defending child prostitution and promoting taxation without representation to "solve" a problem which has been proven not to exist.

    Elections have consequences.

    About carrying guns to town hall meetings, there's a time and a place for everything. What exactly is the point of bringing a gun especially when one guy brought one within proximity to where the president was going to be. That same guy goes to the church of the pastor who wishes death on Obama. That same guy with the gun told people he wanted Obama dead sooner rather than later. One guy was arrested carrying a knife to the president's town hall meeting and had a loaded gun in his truck. Defending child prostitution? Sounds like the ACORN employee was trying to find ways for the "ring" to hide their activities. Didn't seem like the employee was supporting child prostitution no more than your accountant giving you advice of where to hide your money offshore. Both cases are illegal and the person doing it should get in trouble but there's more focus on one over the other. Also taxation without representation? I didn't know congress was disolved.

    I have a hypothetical question for all the "conservatives" on this thread.

    If you had to pick one option that would occur what would it be?

    A. ACORN is fully investigated. Anyone determined to have committed crimes is brought to justice. Some of the Federal Government's money (less than 5 Million at most) is recovered.

    B. Military Contractors are fully investigated. Anyone determined to have committed crimes is brought to justice. Some of the Federal Government's money (32 Billion spent on Blackwater alone) is recovered.

    Well, I'm definitely on the liberal side of the fence, and I have to say, I'd like to see both happen. I doubt that the results will shut up any of the loudmouths on either side of the fence, though.
