ACORN absolutely must have access regardless of criminal indictments.  The Democrats have to pay back for getting The One elected.  BTW, did anyone hear news las night about 34% of overseas soldier votes were thrown out because they were "lost"?

Sour grapes, get over it, Obama won.
"There are plenty of good reasons for fighting, but no good reason ever to hate without reservation, to imagine that God almighty Himself hates with you, too. Where's evil? It's that large part of every man that wants to hate without limit, that wants to hate with God on its side." - Kurt Vonnegut

It may take a while to get over the fact that our country is going down the tubes with the leadership of President Obama. 

And yes before you ask, I believe we are WAAAAAAAAAAAAY worse off today than we were four years ago.

Obama has no intention of pullling this country back up.  The longer he can keep it down and get people to "think" he can pull it back up by taking "drastic" measures, like control businesses and banks and insurance the better he will like it.

Obama hates the United States it is obvious by all his speeches he makes apologizing for everything we have ever done in the last 250 years.

Well, we have done some pretty crappy things in our history.  The least we could do is cut it out; ie. torturing prisoners & invading sovereign nations under the cloak of bullsh*t, just to name two.

I think if you put the crappy things we have done on one side and the good things we have done on the other side the good outweighs the bad by a bunch.

Yes, bad things happen, slavery was a terrible thing, allowing babies to be aborted is terrible, I happen to think torture is OK, the name of this thread is payback time.  If people are being tortured it is payback for 911, USS Cole, previous attach on the WTC.  If you want to run with the dogs you have to pay the price if you get caught. 

We should not be apologizing to people who have not gotten an education.  I know a lot of people who are not rich and do not come from rich families who did whatever it took to get the education they wanted and they appreciate their education a lot more than the people will who get their education handed to them.

Health care is another issue.  I pay over $250 a  month for my health care.  No I can't afford it but I can't afford not to have it either.  I am a cancer survivor.  God forbid the cancer ever comes back I want to see the doctor of my choice and when I want to see him, not when the government tells me to. 

I wish we had not gone to Iraq.  I think we had bad information and acted before it was proven.  I don't think the people in Iraq really wanted to be liberated or they would step up to the plate now so our troops could leave.  Big mistake for the US, but, we are doing what we can to make things right now, including giving the lives of some of our young men and women.  What more do people want from us.

Anytime someone, anyone has asked for assistance from us we have given it.
I am proud to be an American, in spite of Barack Obama.

Hmm, ask the Afghan mother who had a pallet of food dropped on her head from 5,000 feet if that's true or not.  Or better yet, ask her kids if America has made them better off.

I'll jump in here for just a few minutes and put my two cents worth in. We as a nation have made some misstakes during our history, but for the record look at the good we've done. Now let's consider this not as a democrat or republican, I am neither, but as thinking American's capable of thinking for ourselves. I don't know if we went to war over bogus information or not, stop and think how long ole Sadam had to remove his WMD's to Syria or any other friendly Arab nation before we took action. These weapons had been there prior because he used them with his war with Iran, just a thought. To the last part of this post, yes we probably have done some crappy things in our history, but sometime ask yourself was it crappy to liberate other people with the blood of American military personnel. If it was I suggest you go to Arlington National Cemetary, Normandy, Pearl Harbor, and the other cemeteries around the world and tell the loved ones of those you made the ultimate sacrafise it was crappy. Or carry yourself to the Vietnam Wall, I have several friend's with their name on that wall, and as for a veteran myself I don't think it was a mistake. Just my opinion.

Back to the original thought on the thread.  The dems are paying back ACORN by giving them our tax dollars, despite more than one indictment for voter fraud.  THAT is not sour grapes.  That is fact and to me is fraud.

Who do you think ARMED Saddam with the WMD's you mistakenly claim were moved to Syria and other countries?

Reagan.

As for liberating countries, if that is the US's job, strap on your feedbag because most of the WORLD needs liberating, and many of them have legitimate WMD's.

Well said, but it is not hard to understand you only post out of hatred for the Bush administration. You wouldn't have slightess idea about liberating anything. It is apparent that you have nothing but disdain for this country, and before someone comes on and says this is a personal attack, that couldn't be further from the truth. You don't have to be a genius to figure out you post from a totally bias opinion.

You are mistaking disdain for the Bush admin. for disdain for the country.

Not the same.

Just as disdain for the war in Iraq is not the same as "hating the troops."

You are trying to wrap my arguments around the wrong issues.

As for whether I know anything about liberating any countries, that didn't seem to stop Bush from trying to "liberate" Iraq, nor did it stop him from appointing people to run Iraq that had less experience than he had in "liberating" a country.

If it requires experience in doing something to ever do that thing, nobody would have ever accomplished anything throughout the history of mankind.

I don't need experience in liberating a country to know Bush royally effed up in Iraq, just like I don't need to know how it feels to get shot in the head to know its not something I want to experience.

ACORN will be registering thousands of voters for the next elections. Most of which will vote democrat. The GOP is going to lose more seats in the house and senate. No wonder they are grasping at straws in their attempt to discredit ACORN.

I'd rather be considered a "liberal troll" than a Limbaugh "ditto head" The GOP has lost its way. They are now following a draft dodging, drug addicted "entertainer" who is making fun of generals such as Colon Powell.

ACORN is under several indictments.  Why should they be allowed access to taxpayer funds?  Oh and the indictments are for...gasp....voter Fraud.  Naturally, the dems want this to continue to happen so they can "lose" more soldier votes and get the winos and the other uninformed to vote for a change to a new society that ignores our Constitution and it's precepts.  The dems got more sophisticated at stealing the election this time around and were able to circumvent part of the election process.  Gore was a learning time for them.  They have it down pat now.  Once the 2010 elections are done, IF the dems keep or gain more seats, then look forward to all kinds of legislation violating the Constitution of the United States.  Over half the country will be labeled right wing extremists and as domestic terrorists.  They have already set the groundwork.

Did what?  Serve our country in war...done it twice so far & have 5 years to go before retirement.  You think you have some special pedestal for serving?  Your voice or opinion means more because of that?  Going to burst your bubble, but it doesn't- not one iota.  Last time I checked we have the same rights as anyother citizen- even the homeless bum living under a bridge.  To discount someone's opinion because of, lets say military service, is ignorant and narrow minded.

Won't discount opinion when someone has been there before.  It is those who voice their opinion about the military I discount.  As for ACORN, they are under several indictments and funds should br frozen from them before we find out how much fraud was committed by these "community organizers."  You too have already been marked as a right wing extremist by the MIAC report and Napalotano's "assessment" of veterans.
