ACORN: Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now was given billions of Federal dollars. This organization corrupted our elections and lead to the mortgage meltdown by corrupting the lending process. ACORN was the most corrupt organization in recent memory.
What was Barry Obama's resume: Community Organizer, elected by ACORN.
Yeah, Barry has three more weeks, then he can go back to community organizing.
No, it's not 2008. The hopey changey has turned to blame and lie. Too bad you got fooled again.
ACORN and The Center for Responsible Lending, the liberal group that forced banks to lend to people that couldn't afford it. The cause of the mortgage meltdown.
Summary: The Center for Responsible Lending
presents itself as a tireless advocate of
poor and downtrodden borrowers facing
a credit industry of greedy banks, payday
lenders and other fi nancial predators. Yet a
review of CRL’s advocacy paints a different
picture of the organization. It is intimately
tied to some of the worst actors in the lending
business and its advocacy has too often
hurt, not helped, the very people it claims
"Seeing as 4 million were eligible to retire in 2009 alone you are welcome to believe what you want."
"The labor force consists of all people aged 16 and over either employed or actively seeking work. It does not include discouraged workers, people who have retired, or those on welfare or disability who are no longer looking for work."
"And yet the only group currently being investigated for commiting fraud is registering Republican voters."
It is good to see that you are controlling your hyperbolic hysteria, Bugs. The other day you had the the group tried and convicted. At least now you are admitting that there is just an investigation going on.
It is good to see that you are controlling your hyperbolic hysteria
of course republican fraud is just not as sexxy or interesting as imagined dem fraud.
Does ACORN ring a bell inside your echo chamber? ACORN was also instrumental in the mortgage meltdown.
Before “subprime” became a household word, ACORN waded into the mortgage market, supporting policies that helped lay the groundwork for the catastrophic lending collapse of 2008. Working with another activist group, the Center for Responsible Lending, ACORN lobbied legislators and banks to ensure that any person, regardless of credit history, income, or assets, would qualify for a mortgage. They mastered the art of pressuring banks – often through radical and controversial methods – to
provide subprime loans to all comers. It was many of these “toxic” loans that defaulted and sparked the subprime mortgage crisis.
"They are greeters and paper checkers. They were never intended to deter an attack. Its a non issue move on."
It is only hardcore Obama deadenders who believe that the death of an Ambassador along with the death of three other valiant Americans is a non issue.
Didn't I tell you earlier that the Ambassador's father asked that his death not be politicized? Why do you continue to do so?
If you had any shame, you'd find a sword and fall on it.
You are an idiot. I said the fact that the Libyan door guards were unarmed is a non issue. Nowhere will you see me say the same about the 4 dead Americans.
"On the other hand if you want to compare Obama to Bush or Biden to Quayle by all means lets do so."
Barack Obama is 50% more irresponsible and unpatriotic than George W Bush according to Obama's own standards.
Joe Biden makes Dan Quayle look like Einstein.
8 million Boomers retired in the last four years, Bugs? Is that the line of BS that you want us to believe?
Seeing as 4 million were eligible to retire in 2009 alone you are welcome to believe what you want.
"What part of the Obama campaign supporting it as well eluded you Paul?"
Democrats have a track record of trying to disqualify military votes.
The only ones with a track record of disqualifying votes are the Repubs and all the voter suppression bills they keep trying to push through in various states.
"Why would you arm foreign nationals?"
Duh! It was Benghazi, Libya, Bugs. We were the foreign nationals there.
"And yet I have never taken a dime from the government in my life and I still support the president."
You don't have an Obamaphone, Bugs? How sad.
Ahh but to use your own logic, a tax rebate would be me getting my own money back as opposed to a government hand out.
I see it as a mark of patriotism and pride that I am able to pay taxes to help my country and its citizens. Only you are okay with that fact that Romney gives more than twice as much to his cult as he does to the country he wants to govern.
So, now you admit that the government confiscates your money through taxes? So, you don't like paying a large percentage of your own income to the government, BUT you believe that everybody else should.
Romney is taxed on capital gains, which is a different rate. Then he voluntarily gives 30% of his income to charity which does more good for people than the federal governments handouts. But, that won't get Barry Obama votes.
As long as they pay as big a percentage in federal taxes as I do then I have no issues. And yet Mittens pays much, much less.
Does that not apply to all taxpayers, Bugs? Even the ones that earn more money than you do?
