    That's not even close to what I said. You might want to consult your eye doctor. I said show me the language in the bill earmarking money specifically to acorn or in the words of sarah palin: "how about honoring our troops overseas and quit making stuff up". If you read her resignation speech you'd see how ridiculous that line was. The point is quit making stuff up.
    That's exactly what you said. How 'bout an apology to all the service members on the board for dragging their service through the muck.

    No they weren't. You keep claiming it but have already shown that you don't know what you're talking about. I'll take this as you conceding. I asked you for the specific language earmarking ACORN for billions. You could not so I'll take that as you making things up.

    That's not even close to what I said. You obviously can't read. I was quoting sarah palin and telling you to quit making things up. How about you apologize to every member of the board for having to sit through your continued ignorance?

    Yeah you are. You still haven't shown me the language in the stimulus bill specifically earmarking money to ACORN as you claimed

    That is besides the point in regards to what pouge moran was saying when he quoted Sarah Palin.

    Tell us the other community orginizer groups that were in the running for the money? To say that ACORN would receive none of the money is ludicrous. All the help they gave to the Dems to get them elected and the Dems are going to leave them out of the pecking order? Somehow, I seriously doubt that's going to happen.


    I'm not making up anything, unless you can prove to us where it was specifically stated that ACORN wasn't going to receive any Stealfromus money. Can you?

    I think we all know what you said. You owe us an apology. Might as well go ahead and get it over with.

    Again I ask you since you stated they were earmarked for the stimulus money. Where in the stimulus bill is ACORN earmarked? You state something try proving it for once. Not everyone is as paranoid as you apdst. I know how to look at a bill and read what it means meanwhile you rely on people like Malkin to tell you what it means. Besides the neighborhood stabilization program. Do you even understand what that is?

    Translation: "I can't prove it so I want you to prove me wrong." Logical fallacy you're asking me to prove a negative that would be like me asking you to prove that you're not a child molestor. Again if you state something so emphatically the onus is on your to prove it. Now I suggest you prove it or stop derailing my thread.

    I know what I said and so do others who can read. I don't owe an apology for something I didn't say. You owe me an apology for trying to libel me for claiming I said something I didn't. You also owe the board an apology for having to sift through your continued trolling ignorance.

    But that is NOT what you said. You said:

    I mean, why investigate an orginization that was earmarked to receive 8 billion dollars of taxpayer money

    So, you're claiming that there's no way that ACORN was going to get a piece of the 8 billion dollars earmarked for community organizers? You can't be serious.

    It shouldn't be hard for you to prove that claim, since obviously there would be some specific language saying that ACORN was inelligible for the funs.

    Hell, even PBO admits that ACORN was getting a, "whole lot", of federal money.

    You know, itís ó frankly, itís not really something Iíve followed closely. I didnít even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money. --PBO
