Why single out ACORN? This whole bailout madness is about Washington politicians granting favors to those they deem worthy.

If they really wanted to help the ecomomy, they would drastically cut corporate and business taxes, immediately improving the climate for all.

But we can't have that. Such actions would place the benefits out of their sphere of influence. It's all about control - their control over us.

Show us where Mickey Mouse actually voted. Otherwise, you might not want to fall back on that particular fallacy as it might make you look dumb.

Just visited that link in the first post. OMG, the Republicans and some wingnuts think that ACORN may, possibly, somehow, get TARP money... say it aint so. So, is there any actual facts to support this claim or is it more sky is falling crap. The election is over. You guys lost. Please get over it.

These are facts. But instead, our new leaders are focused more on a private jet and a redecorated bathroom. These are propaganda tools aimed at turning public opinion against the private sector, paving the way for greater control from Washington.

So, the concern over the jet has consumed 100% of everyone's time? Do you really believe this or are you just trying to rile people up?

Citigroup looks like a bunch of inept a$$holes over this jet deal in this current economy. With decision makers like this in charge of the large financial institutions, no wonder they are in so much trouble.

Too much time is spent propagandizing, and that's all this is. The jet deal is up for debate as fare as how wise it was for Citigroup, but for the government to step in and advise people how to spend money wisely is laughable IMHO.

Your link and your first post was propaganda. Geeze, get real.



Okay then, do you think ACORN should receive TARP money? If so, please explain why and how this would boost the economy.

But its perfectly ok for the Right to whine and cry about "welfare queens" and other forms of "socialism"? Meanwhile, the TAXPAYERS are bailing out a financial institution that is wasting money on a corporate jet and you dont think the Government, you know, the people that gave them that money in good faith for LENDING, shouldnt be telling them how to spend it? Indeed. I ***WANT*** them to specifically tell them exactly, precisely what they are allowed to spend it on. I suspect though that if the Obama administration hadnt stepped in, you would be on the other side complaining about how they are letting bailout funds get spent on frivolous things. Nothing pleases you folks.

And this 'distress' so earliy into Obama's administration from the people who were so supportive of Bush? It's going to be a long four years. Obama has done more in five actual working days than Bush did in his first 100 days in office.

No disagreement Hawk. But when does Washington get their feet held to the fire to the same degree?

It's pretty easy to hide in Congress when you're just one vote out of many. But the havoc these guys cause far outstrips what any single business could ever inflict.



BTW - loved the baby seal tapas last night! How about tonight we go for polar bear kabobs?

Um, yeah...both were a monumental waste of TAXPAYER FUNDED BAILOUT MONEY. The wild ass speculation from a bunch of Right Wingers that TARP funds might, maybe, possibly, somehow go to ACORN? Not so much.

Propaganda tools? Like trying to ensure that bailout money is used for actually investing in our economy rather than solid gold toilet seats and a kewl jet? Unreal.

We can't, all the polar bears fell in the ocean and drowned when their icebergs melted from climate change...

Who said ACORN was getting TARP money? I mean besides you and your right wing blog?


As if you would find this in a left-wing blog? Please suggest a neutral place to get information, then. I'd be interested in looking at it.

I'm sorry, I thought you were smart enough to use search engines, read different sites, and figure these things out for yourself. I apologize for overestimating your abilities. It won't happen again.


No problem....But, I've noticed that whatever source a person uses on HTW is only as good as the person posting it. The source gets debated - not necessarily the content.

Do any of y'all even read blogs? I'm just curious. I don't. I bet I haven't read 10 blogs in my life. When I post something here, it is a news article, usually from whatever source I can find, because I usually first see it on one of the cable news shows.

I like to read the syndicated newspaper columnists, but other than that, I can form my own opinions without reading what some guy at a computer thinks. I'm sure there are some good blogs, with good ideas and commentary, but if the bloggers on the right lie as much as their spokesmen on TV do, I'll just stay away from that world altogether.

Oh, and about the ACORN thing, they are not the boogiemen Rush wants us to think they are. As far as them getting TARP funds, if some of them go to help rebuild New Orleans, I'm OK with it. ACORN has a large office there, and are doing good work. But I hope someone is watching how the money is being spent.

As was shown earlier regarding Pelosi's air travel, even something seen on cable news must be fact checked.

My question is, who is there to fact check Snopes?

When a link's posted by someone on the Left, it's a "news source"

I love to read blogs. Lots of them out there...totally unrestrained when it comes to information, point of view etc. The only real caveat is that you need to check the sources of the information, which most bloggers readily provide. As a matter of fact, bloggers do a far better job of news gathering than our traditional media ever thought about doing. Beyond that, Ive learned of things on blogs a good 3-4 days ahead of the mainstream media.

True that, but additional information is always a good idea IMO.

Im sure you will be shocked to learn that RW blogs typically are far more dishonest than the Left. This is one of the reasons I suggest the fact-checking for yourself if its something you care about.
