    House Votes to De-Fund ACORN

    House Votes to De-Fund ACORN

    I'm pleasantly surprised by this timely action by the House of Representatives.

    This must have been painful for Pelosi, who has sabotaged 6 previous efforts of other House members who pushed to de-fund ACORN.
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Nice, well I hope they don't just start up another one with a different name.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I'm sure the efforts to do so are already underway, there's still "stimulus cash" laying around.

    Right now Congress really did not have much choice on this. In some ways it is too bad, since the goals of the organization is good. Housing and voter regestration for poor people is something I can get behind. Unfortunately, ACORN has proven to be the wrong organization for the job right now. I hope they get their crap together and get rid of the corrupt people and the idiots.

    Those goals, are not good. Neither of them are the business of government.

    If you want to get behind them, you do it, with your money.

    You clearly do not know me very well. Feel free to keep looking foolish though.
