The same ACORN with a new name.

It’s like a beast that can grow new heads as fast as you can cut the old ones off.

This organization (ACORN, aka COI) gets our tax dollars. If tax dollars were filtering into the TEA Party, the libs would throw a screaming hissy fit.

Too bad the GOP pansies won’t do a damned thing about it.

The Soros-financed people behind Occupy (We Can’t Wait!), are the same exact people and Soros-funded orgs that were behind the anti-war movement (World Can’t Wait!), and the 2005 La Raza Protests.

Remember kiddies, we aren’t dealing with your father’s Democrats anymore. These are the Radical Chomsky/Zinn useful idiot Wanna-be Communists.
