If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Reader, Kevin O’Brien smells a rat:
-It’s a typical these-voters-are-such-rubes stunt; the House and Senate voted to defund ACORN on different bills.
-The Senate bill is a housing bill, the House bill the federal takeover of student loans. Each bill will wind up in conference committee where the ACORN ban can be quietly stripped out, behind closed doors and secure from prying eyes. Then the org can keep on doing its important work of voter fraud and pandering to presumed pedophiles.
-The most useful principle to hold close when considering members of Congress: they’re all crooks

Damn, I didn't notice...but he's absolutely right

What can be said? Finally, this organization is being shown for what it really is. My only fear is that it will come back under a different name...

Yeah, but I hope that it's not all smoke and friggin' mirrors. That's my major concern.

If you notice 80% of the voting members of the black caucus voted against the defunding. And since acorn changed its name back in June to community organizers international, they can continue to receive funds.
