    ACORN | $350,000 | Affiliate | The Daily Caller

    So it still looks like we're funding this agency- (just under a different name)-As you remember ACORN was being investigated in 17 different states for voter fraud. Undercover people went into to ACORN offices--to discuss underage prostitution--and the employees at this agency advised them on how to get away with it--along with how not to pay any taxes--and the Federal Government cut them off.

    This should be no surprise. Obama has to buy his support now cause the whole hopey, changey bubble burst.

    This is the exact reason why NO NEW TAXES are needed.

    This is why we need to abolish many of these federal departments. Too many of them lack oversight and have too broad authority to do what they want.

    I don't know what you all are complaining about. Right there in the enumerated powers of the Constitution there is something about funding ACORN-like organizations, I'm just sure of it.

    In all seriousness, it's a drop in the bucket of debt, one of thousands of federal pet projects that, as of today, has each of us that pays taxes owing $131,604.

    In my best obnoxious DJ voice: "On it's way to 200 grand with a bullet, it's the latest hit from the boys in Washington, "Printin' Benjamins!""

    Over an equally obnoxious rap loop:

    We be printin Benjamins all day long
    We be spending for mo hoes up in down da schlong
    When da mailman bring me the bill to pay
    We say fuck 'em we'll blow his ass away
    Yea we're entitled you muther fuckin' bitch
    We'll spend what we want and we take it from the rich

    Blatantly unconscionable.

    This stinks so bad that not having a congressional criminal investigation of this flagrant corruption is simply unacceptable.

    How do these corrupt organizations get our tax money so easily when all I want to do is keep alittle more of what I earn? These people with political ties can get our money, but we can't. It's just wrong on so many levels.
