    it was a massive transfer of wealth from the taxpayers to the rich, to replenish, to socialize their huge losses

    but you seem confused ... that inept bailout was approved by dubya - prior to the election

    You seemed more confused. The Government AFTER Bush, nullified contracts companies had with Employees to appease Obama's far left fringe. Nice attempt to deflect the issue.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Which you seem to be ignoring was legislated under Bush. Technically, Obama cannot void existing contracts under the 2nd TARP legislation. He can only do so under the first TARP legislation which as I pointed out and you seem hell bent on ignoring, was signed by Bush. Furthermore, you seem to be again hell bent on ignoring how the Acorn bill does not have the language you claimed it did.

    Just because the literal text of the bills does not conform to your view doesn't make the bills says whatever you want them to.

    no. i insist; it is you, who remains confused. you asked the question ... highlighted in my reply above ... about the bailout
    if there was deflection, it was at your elicitation

    and the OP is about the withholding of federal dollars from acorn - and the justice department's determination that estoppel is effective only for any contract awards committed after the anti-acorn legislation was passed. the federal contracting officers now have legal authority, bith under the justice clarification as well as the federal acquisition regulations to pay the contractor for goods/services received

    but you have yet to explain to us why that finding is found unreasonable

    You mean companies like Dyncorp who were twice busted running a prostitution ring but still receive millions from our government because they're a military contractor. Some values.

    Of course you've never heard of them they only get millions from our government every year as opposed to the 52 million acorn got over 15 years. No Dyncorp are active enablers of child prostitution and human smuggling. Acorn had a few bad employees **** up their job for a fake pimp and fake hooker. Surely you can see the difference. One actively committed a real crime against our government but still get funded while you complain about Acorn. Dyncorp gets 95% of its 2 billion annual funding from the federal government

    Acorn helps a lot of poor people in this country. People have heard of dyncorp just not you. Most people who aren't dedicated to partisan hackery know about them. Dyncorp isn't heard of because they're military contractors. How often do you see people on TV bitching about them? If you weren't as partisan as you come off Prof you would be commenting more on Dyncorp who commits actual crimes, gets more funding and has gotten away with their crimes. If Acorn is "very bad" as you claim then using your metric Dyncorp would be the devil.

    Re: Justice Department Says Acorn Can Be Paid for Pre-Ban Contracts

    down with dynocorp!

    acorn, meanwhile, enables child prostitution and human trafficking

    very bad

    obama, i believe, got his start with the association of community organizers

    i'm pretty sure even non partisans are pretty aware of that

    oh well
