We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Rep Jerrold Nadler, from NY's 8th Congressional District, has been "re-districted" into a very reliable Democratic seat (last republican elected in 1920!) It shouldn't surprise anyone that as Chairman of this subcommittee, he refuses to look at the facts concerning the ample proof of Voter Registration fraud, and Fraudulent Absentee Ballots, from ACORN.
What REALLY gets me mad is that ACORN is a HUGE recipient of federal tax dollars, as "Community Organizing" charity, or some other BS.
Has anyone investigated the links that Pres Obama's has to this organization? Has anyone looked into the effect this fraudulent activity has on the trust the American people have in their election process? No wonder so many voters are apathetic, and feel that "My vote doesn't count"!!
I've had an eye on the activities of ACORN ever since the 2004 elections. In the aftermath of those, the organization's members were convicted of voter fraud more than eight times. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Those of us raised in the Middle West are very familiar with the corruption rife in Illinois politics, centered around Chicago's Daley mob machine. The group is eerily reminiscent of Boss Tweed and the Tammany Hall political machine.
Interesting to a student of semantics is the change in designation of ACORN and its sister organizations to "community organizers." Forty years or more ago we called them "union agitators," which sounds much more violent. And was -- and in a way still is. The White House may have fired its diplomatic advisors when the new administration moved in, but they have a busy little staff of semanticists working away there, changing terminology to fool the foolish... like the Global War on Terror mutating into a harmless and unimportant sounding "overseas contingency operation," something they could more easily abandon when convenient.
"Community Organizations" is a euphemism for "Communist Front Groups", and a "community organizer" is a euphemism for a "commissar".
Using NGO's funded by taxes is tactic straight out of the playbooks of Stalin, Lenin and Mao.
We are in deep trouble. If this is not dealt with then we will never have an honest election again, and "dealing with it" means putting people in jail, and some of those people will have to be politicians who support this tyranny.
It is faily obvious at this point that the GOP is really not up to htis. They have always thought the the Democrats were misguided but basically have good intentions. Nothing could be further from the truth.
