    Perhaps the information we saw on the tapes was just too practical. After all... they were just trying to help a poor white trash couple import some underage hoe's for some lovin'. That's part of the American dream ain't it?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Priests all over the world committed horrible crimes against children, and their superiors in some cases helped cover up the crimes:

    Catholic Church moved abusive priests abroad, says AP report

    The GOP has had a troubled history as well:

    Ney Pleads Guilty to Corruption Charges

    Should these organizations be disbanded and their leaders jailed, or do those standards only apply to ACORN?

    Well, the church is tax exempt, no? The GOP, as far as I know, is not funded by tax dollars but by voluntary donation.

    Is your point that corruption only applies to those who receive government contracts? Because my point is that the wrongdoing of individuals within an organization doesn't automatically taint the entire organization. In other words, individual instances of corruption do not prove systemic corruption. You disagree with that?

    But you do raise in interesting point. Government funding actually increases accountability. After all, government operations in this country are subject to all sorts of sunshine laws and disclosure requirements. Because of that, private entities are more capable of successfully covering up illicit action.

It disturbs me that someone like Okeefe can create a narrative and you fall for it no matter how many times hes caught lying. What disturbs me is how he goes after organizations who get little from taxpayes and help minorities while ignoring organizations like Dyncorp who set up real underage prostitution rings and receive billions from taxpayers.
    You failed to answer my questions.

    Re: Former Head of ACORN Bertha Lewis

    Does anyone here think that Lewis is correct in her prediction that what's going to happen to them [she's talking to Socialists] is going to be like the Internment Camps?

    No. I certainly hope not. Though I'm not a socialist and don't advocate socialism, it's not illegal to be one, nor should it be.

    I think you've said this before. Who is implying that it should be illegal? That's just silly.

    Well, the implication is that socialists will be rounded up and incarcerated. Maybe illegal was a poor word choice. Anyway, I don't think that will happen -- is that not what you were asking?
