    The Attorney General says, that ACORN CAN BE FUNDED............AGAIN !
    Where is the outrage!

    NY TIMES: Attorney General Says ACORN Can Be Funded by Federal Government – (Audacity of Hypocrisy) | barryfail.com

    This certainly is another demonstration of a government OUT OF CONTROL.
    We are led by IDIOTS and MADMEN.

    When will this arrogant, self rightous BS stop and one question folks.

    Who's Country is THIS?

    It appears that these people in Washington D.C. think it is THEIRS personally, without any citizen involvement!

    Everyday we wake up and see another unbelievable event with this administration.​

    That's a question only the attorney general can answer. Or Glen Beck. But as far as HUD money:

    archer daniels my bad


    The Archer Daniels Midland Corporation (ADM) has been the most prominent recipient of corporate welfare in recent U.S. history. ADM and its chairman Dwayne Andreas have lavishly fertilized both political parties with millions of dollars in handouts and in return have reaped billion-dollar windfalls from taxpayers and consumers. Thanks to federal protection of the domestic sugar industry, ethanol subsidies, subsidized grain exports, and various other programs, ADM has cost the American economy billions of dollars since 1980 and has indirectly cost Americans tens of billions of dollars in higher prices and higher taxes over that same period. At least 43 percent of ADM's annual profits are from products heavily subsidized or protected by the American government. Moreover, every $1 of profits earned by ADM's corn sweetener operation costs consumers $10, and every $1 of profits earned by its ethanol operation costs taxpayers $30

    in 1980 alone....this company got about 700 million dollars.....but you keep on being distracted by acorn

    People have a particular distaste for setting up brothels for the slave trade bones. It doesn't matter how much money it is. They need to be put out of business.

    i cannot disagree with that statement but i still think its merely a distraction from the bigger picture. government spending could be curtailed by many methods but they will all cause some job loss...do we really need the huge layer of middle men that have created themselves a nice little corner of the market for doing what? many states have cut budgets simply by ending programs that have become outdated. the yearly roll over funding that is done, based on how much you received and got rid of the year before is not a good way to run a business. if you want to see abuse of government funding look at halitburton...if you want to discuss brothels etc....look at the no rape policy that was voted on...if you truly want to look at the blackness of our government you need to look at more than acorn...on the total radar...acorn is not even a blimp
