Posted on 03/22/2010 4:31:09 PM PDT by Slyscribe
This doesnt balance out ObamaCare for conservatives, but it eases the pain a little: The once mighty community activist group ACORN announced Monday it is folding amid falling revenues six months after video footage emerged showing some of its workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute. Well, at least theyre willing to accept responsibility. Oops. Its really declining revenue in the face of a series of attacks from partisan operatives

You had better believe that these criminal leeches are not about to walk away from millions of tax dollars. Especially when Obama and Holder have their backs.
If Republicans regain control of Congress in November it should be a priority to hold hearings on how ACORN continues to be funded by this administration and their sleazy money manipulators. And you can bet that the money still gets to them, no matter what they call themselves.
Don’t believe this bait and switch BS.
AmeriCORPSE, 0’s brownshirts...
when the SA was disbanded after the night of the long knives, there was lots of openings for good little facists, in the SS and the Gestapo.
and so it will be the 0baminations little acorns....
No one is stupid enough to believe this, They may change their name, but they arent dissappearing.
Acorn DBA Chock full o’ Nuts....the Coffee Beans...Chocolatte moussees.....
We should check Domain names for newbees.
Still farmin’, then ...
National Union of anti-Teabagging Screamers
FAUX STORY!!! They will NEVER DISBAND!! They will RE_NAME thoier Org. maybe!!
And tomorrow the group Community Organizer International Opens up instead? COI is the name ACORN changed to several months back.
They are just organizing under a new name.
Are you falling for their diversion?
Are you so simple minded to accept what they say - at face value?
They aren’t going anywhere but to Kinko’s to change the name on their stationary.
It has a rather Commie ring to it, no?
I think that’s what’s happening - Bachmann said their funding was restored by he who would be king.
FReep mail me if you want on/off the list.
I’ve read every reply on this thread - aren’t federal contracts created with an organization by name? I know this congress and white house can do whatever they want going forward, but companies will keep an old name because to lose it means the federal contract is null. The contracts for tax preparation, housing, etc. would all have to be rewritten. Hmmm...
So ACORN, everyone's favorite nuthouse, finally closed its doors. I quietly mourned, just as I had when "Just Nuts" at the local mall shut down. It had 60 kinds of nuts, including the Ogbono - which isn't really a nut, but a drupe. Fun fact: macadamia is neither a nut or a drupe, but a follicle.
Maybe that wasn't a fun fact after all.
Kind of an opposite of a fun fact, if you ask me.
But you didn't. Anyway, with ACORN gone, it leads me to two thoughts. One: if it were a right-wing entity, and the pranksters were lefties - this would immediately turn into a mega-million dollar movie, directed by Steven Soderberg, with George Clooney comically hamming it up as the bad guy.
In fact, they should do that, anyway!
Turn ACORN into a drug company, with James O'keefe and Hannah Giles becoming whistleblowers who discover that the lifesaving cancer drug was made from fetuses! No wait. That won't matter. It's made from puppies! Right! puppies!
Matt Damon could play O'keefe, or possibly even Giles. He'll take any excuse to show off his marvelous legs.
But you get my point. In the past five years, we've had two very funny movies by Sasha Baron Cohen, a performer who used either racist or overly obnoxious characters to create discomfort among clueless Yanks (who, for the most part, reacted politely). But none of his pranks ever exposed corruption or real, deadly hate. I've said it before - Cohen, a Jew, would have scored more points if he hit a Willesden mosque, instead of a southern rodeo.
But he's the star.
Anyway, I look forward to the newest incarnation of ACORN. This stuff just doesn't go away, you know - it only finds another shell.
(What, you thought I wouldn't end with a nut metaphor?)
And if you disagree with me, you're a homophobe racist who bullies overweight flight attendants.
