And aiding and abetting hookers, child prostitution, and illegal immigration in support of both. Meanwhile, they hide embezzlement, and commit fraudulent acts in registering voters, illegally influecing elections, and much more. There's your 'community organizing'.

And lets not forget how addressing perfectly valid 'redlining' means loans to people who will default...and lead to where we wound up.

Please show your work. Provide for us the evidence, in their own words, not your twisted perception, of any free market supporters stating they want to kill the folks you say you support.

My point is that not all Republicans, or even all Republican Representatives, dislike ACORN for the reasons you attribute to them.

I have heard you yourself make that claim, as well as most wingers. You know it, so do I.

Sure. that's why they didn't call the cops, that's why they gave advice evading messy questions so they could get a loan for their child hooker house.

Anyone who even attempts to defend ACORN is or is just merely trying to get a rise out of those who would argue.

I personally LOVE acorn. With them around, one needs to look no further for a clear illustration of how fringe lefties in positions of power operate.

I like him too. I know he is smart and just playing a game with us, he believes very little of what he posts. Keep it up, it's entertaining.

So far as I can recall, I have only addressed the subject once before, and then I said essentially the same thing that I said today. There is evidence the ACORN has attempted to improperly influence the outcome of elections. I don't recall ever saying conculsively that ACORN has actualy done so - just that there is enough evidence to cause concern.

If I am correct on that count - that evidence sufficient to cause concern exists - then suspicion of ACORN is a perfectly reasonable thing. After all, there are few crimes more dangerous to democracy than subverting an election.
