    The only condition he placed on the 'gifts' to the aclu was that he remain anonymous. I wonder if this was the same policy with his vet 'gifts.'

    The aclu plays this same game, they'll 'help' or 'take sides' with a Conservative or non-partisan individual or group, the main theme of course...fully understood.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Islamic terrorists love the ACLU.

    Stupidity isn't illegal but pointing it out is important.

    On that subject, I see you ducked my other post to you.

    Smart move.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Neo-Conservative think tanks have spent a lot of effort going after what they deem to be "liberal" organizations in the past 10-15 years because, generally, these "liberal" organizations represent obstacles to the neo-liberalization agenda.

    This agency fights for the rights of those who can't afford it and it's a keen watchdog of infringements upon the U.S. constitution. I find it disturbing and very telling of the way things are shaping up in American society that there are those who would celebrate the diminishment of an organization that has dedicated its existence to fighting for the rights of American citizens. It may not be perfect in all cases but you have no idea how lucky you are to have such agency, when many places in the world do not.

    Just because a rights organization does not holistically represent your opinions on things does not mean it's worthless and should be tossed out. That kind of partisan blindfold is what is eroding your rights day by day.
    The ACLU has done some great things. It fought against McCartneyism, Segregation, restrictions on Freedom of Speech issues, and other great things, but it's completely dishonest. It says that it's a strict constitutionalist organization yet it's silent on gun laws and bitches about nativity scenes that no one really cares about instead. It also pushes for pot legalization which isn't even in the Constitution. It's selective. It's a socially progressive agency, not completely interchangable with constitutionalist as shown above. There's nothing wrong with this. My problem with the organization is it's dishonest and claims to represent something that it doesn't.

    Exactly, I just commented in another thread about guns, the ACLU is agenda driven, not constitutionally driven!

    It's McCarthyism and if the ACLU fought against Joe McCarthy, then the ACLU definitely defined themselves as the enemy. Joe McCarthy was a great American. Probably saved our country from certain ruin but Communists agents infiltrating our government.
