Skip to comments.Taxpayer funded Serve.gov filtering activists to Acorn

The Obama Administration has placed a large premium on what it calls national service. It has launched a website, www.Serve.gov, that is reported to act as a clearing house for Americans eager to give back to their communities. Unfortunately, Americans looking for an opportunity to volunteer may get something they werent expecting.
By typing ACORN into the search field entitled What interests you at Serve.gov, youre transported to allforgood.org where you can choose from a list of volunteer opportunities, including healthcare activist. This particular volunteer opportunity is with the Tuscon ACORN office:

I wish Breitbart would make his headlines so you could copy and paste them. I can’t do it with IE or Firefox.
Anyway...Acorn has already taken this down...
I love this new web site!!! how long befor it gets taken down, or gets a virus, or something like that? I KNOW they are trying to find a way to neutralize these guys!
So Serve.gov filters you to Acorn where you can get a job as a Healthcare activist. However, reporter says
“Theyre unclear regarding financial reimbursement; though past recruitment, like the Craigslist ads in St. Louis, advertised for paid progressive activists, $90 a day, call Lorna 314-732-0131.
Thanks for posting. According to the comments Serve.gov has already pulled the info from their site.
Thanks to Dana Loesch and Andrew Breitbart. OUTSTANDING!
Maybe we should volunteer and not show up for anything!
I think they were wrong. Others are posting it is still there. I am not going to gov sites right now. i don’t trust these crooks.
United Way gives YOUR money to ACORN too. And many other liberal organizations just like them.
The caliber of people that this will attract won’t be activists unless they are paid. Otherwise they wouldn’t need to pay them, right? I don’t think they will get many “volunteers”without it!
I like the way you think: deviously.
Thank you, I try! I didn’t think this way, until I saw how low they will go, they stop at nothing. It makes for a much more balanced fight, don’t you think?
Turning their own tactics against them is stunning them. As long as it is legal, I say do it.
You are right, it seems to get them off balance. I think Alinsky never thought about defense, onl.y offense. I think that’s why they don’t seem to know how to fight this. Defending criminality really doesn’t seem to be working.
The list, ping
