I think the most interesting thing to come out of the ACORN affair, is
how easy it is going to be to identify a Republican pimp in the future.
Just look for the skinny white guy wearing a blazer under a faux fur
coat in 90 degree heat in San Diego in the Summer.

The failed banks were fed to the predator banks, BofA, Wells Fargo,
CitiBank, etc. who got those assets at massive discounts.

No carry permit!
OH Bill! Not only are you criminal, you are actually stupid.
Even those guys who showed up to the town hall meetings were smart
enough to do it within the Law, by not concealing their weapons which
were all clearly visible on belts, or slung over a shoulder.
One of these days we are going to read about the angry old guy in
Oregon who blew away a meter reader.

Here we go with rays typical response. There was no lack of regulation ray,
you really need to read up on the SEC and how it came about.
