This is the comment left at our blog:
As John F. Kennedy once said, "Where there's smoke, look for a smoke-making machine." The whole "story" of ACORN is a fabrication of the Republican National Committee and those folks in Republican politics who come out with the daily "talking points" for people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. ACORN has had the audacity to register poor people to vote, and those poor people are usually Democrats. This infuriates the Republicans and the right wing commentators. So the right wingnuts find any transgression they can and pump it up and repeat it again and again through the Right Wing echo chambers of Fox News and the conservative talkers. They even had to send a camera crew to one ACORN office after another with the clear purpose of entrapment to get some ACORN people to help finance a small business that might just have some taint of prostitution. Give me a break! Most American people are not falling for this baloney. Most American people know that any organization as large and as active as ACORN is going to have a few people who break some laws. The bottom line is that ACORN does good work, ACORN registers people to vote, ACORN helps poor people get loans from shady and greedy banks, and ACORN as an organization has not done anything wrong. We will continue to hear the drumbeat of accusations and innuendo against ACORN from the Republicans because they have no other issue. The Republican policies of the last thirty years ruined the economy, wiped out the meager savings of a lot of poor people, and made a lot of rich Republicans a lot richer. The Republicans have nobody to blame but themselves. So who do they blame? ACORN, that's who.
Where is the “bear in the woods” pic?
If they are, find out what the going rate is. I’m sure I could do a much better job.
And they DO have money to burn!
Why not they paid for all those “grassroot” contributions to Obama’s campaign.
Just go on to elance.com or guru.com - all kinds of payment-for-blog posting arrangements advertised. Not just limited to politics. And they don’t pay well.
The more blog posts/comments there are pointing to a “home” domain name, the faster that domain moves up in the Google search engine results because of the “relevant” links pointing to it. Hence, companies will hire free-lancers to do the link-building.
Even at 10 cents a post, william pitt must be RICH!
Note the guys name is Magoo
I know the IMDB politics board has paid leftists attempting to control it especially during the busy time slots. They would always appear there several months before an election but after Obama was elected they never went away...someone is keeping the money flowing to them.
Watchoo talkin bout?
someone is keeping the money flowing to them.
...or their delusion is still going strong :)
Might? MIGHT?? How about EXPLICIT evidence of complicity in CHILD prostitution?
I often said liberals are so stupid they would only convict OJ if they had actual video of him slicing off Nicole's head. Now I not so sure...
That post is not unlike many found in my local fishwrap’s online rag...The Austin American Statesman. The only diff I can see is that the local ACORN posters spell Republican as Republikkkan.
Man, I loves me some ACORN—mmmm, child! An’ all tha haters can STEP OFF!
Where mah money?
(Hey, that was easy!)
“Glenn Beck. I hope you die in a fire...If you see him [Glenn Beck] on the street, punch him in the balls for me.”
Every time the Cons smear ACORN I am donating money to the organization. Look at the prankster who made that stupid video. This clown does stuff like calls planned parenthood to donate money to abort Black Babies and records it so he can try to make the group look bad.
Then Planned Parenthood accepts the money and looks bad all on their own.
