    Again Ron, fake registrations mean nothing to the election. Fake voting does. There has been no evidence of voter fraud.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    FYI Boo. I do not respond to your posts anymore.

    You have demonstrated on numerous occasions that you are not a serious or credible poster.

    Please put me on your ignore list.

    Meaning you're projecting and have nothing to offer factually. Gotcha.

    I don't see ACORN as some evil group, merely really really stupid and poorly run.
    It was a $5 bonus. There were going to be lazy employees with or without the bonus.

    Why is it always ACORN and their sub-groups like Project Vote who get convicted of turning in tens of thousands of false registration forms?

    Bad advice from their lawyers?

    Let me google that for you

    They weren't "convicted of turning in false registrations." (Thanks Fox News) The organization ACORN was legally required to turn in registrations, even the ones they know to be false. They did so, flagging those registrations and turned over the responsible employees to the election board and police.

    Has anyone commented on the ACTUAL news item? Talk about jumping the shark.

    ACORN hasn't gone away unfortunately.

    Community organizers never go away, they just transmogrify like Dracula turning into a swarm of rats.

    A few employees of an organization that is responsible for registering voters were being paid in a manner that is legal in many states, but not legal in Nevada. Those same employees chose, of their own volition, to fake paperwork to trick that organization into paying them more money. These employees were found out by the organization and reported, and the fake registrations were annulled so that no fake votes could be cast. And no fake votes were cast. The employees were brought to justice, and the organization they worked for has correctly decided not to clog the legal system in trying to pretend that they didn't employ this unorthodox payment tactic, and are justly paying for it in Nevada. This same payment style is legal in many other states and apparently works just fine there.

    Why is the outrage directed at ACORN as a whole, and not at the specific people who broke the law? I thought people being responsible for their own actions was a major tenant of conservativism and libertarianism.
    Let me get this straight, managers aren't responsible for their employees' actions on behalf of the company?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Not if they discover the crime and turn it over to the proper authorities promptly, no, they aren't criminally liable for those actions.

    Responsible? Yes. Sure. That doesn't mean they're corrupt or even incompetent. When an airline pilot has a few drinks, goes to work, later gets discovered and canned for it, has the airline acted improperly?

    If said airline then took steps to further ensure such a thing doesn't happen again, I'd say they did exactly what a reasonable person would do.
