ACORN: THE ACRONYM: IS FALLING FROM THE TREE. AGAINST CORPORATIONS ORGANIZING TO RIP OFF THE NATION THAT IS THE NEW ACORN



It's poetic justice. There is another acronym for ACORN. It's called the ACORN ACT (Against Corporations Organizing To Rip Off the Nation) introduced Minnesota Democrat Betty McCollum.

The new acronym added to the list is ACORN meaning Against Corporations Organizing to Rip off the Nation is the new one added to the list. It’s getting close to Halloween and the Republican witch hunts need to be met with righteousness instead of the mockery from fringe Republicans’ lunacy.

Minnesota Democrat Betty McCollum introduced the ACORN Act. HR 3679 which seeks to "prohibit the Federal Government from awarding contracts, grants, or other agreements to, providing any other Federal funds to, or engaging in activities that promote certain corporations or companies guilty of certain felony convictions."

"It's time Congress get serious about taxpayer funding of corporate cheats, crooks and criminals," said Democrat Betty McCollum
IMO, Betty McCollum's bill respects the constitution since requiring a corporation to be guilty of a felony before their federal funds are cut off which means Acorn could actually receive federal funding because they have not been convicted of anything.

In the fiscal year 2007, "United States Attorneys' offices opened 878 new criminal health care fraud investigations involving 1,548 potential defendants.

The time is now to take on these crooks, who incidentally have killed Americans like Halliburton with faulty equipment that killed people and solders and the drug company Pfizer marketed a fraudulent arthritis drug.

ACORN, the community organizing group is guilty of helping get a living wage and getting people to vote in this country. It’s ironic, you know, ACORN is the embodiment of all the evil things poor and moderate income people are criticized for working hard and having a voice in this democracy. Isn’t it?

Oh, what a can of worms the Republican witch hunters opened up!

Editor: Please delete these two treads I just posted. I thought I had posted the first one in Trivial Tangents. I thought when I reposed it; it was in trivial tangents. I made the same mistake twice. Sorry
