Have you heard of ACORN? Come on, I know you have. Have you heard of President Obama? He worked for ACORN. He said many times throughout the campaign how much he supported ACORN, and how much he owed to the organization for helping him be all that he could be as a community organizer.
ACORN got put in the hot seat a few months ago for instructing a couple on how to set up a brothel of underage and illegal slave girls. Congress rightfully (in my opinion) voted to deny future funds to ACORN until further investigation. Which brought about an interesting question: Does ACORN still get the money promised to them by the federal government before the ban occured?
Today, the Attorney General’s Office concluded that ACORN cold continue to receive taxpayer money.
Which of course, being a taxpayer, got me hoping mad. As I usually do, I started muttering to myself and sat down to write a blog post. My husband overheard me muttering, and we got into an interesting conversation about whether or not ACORN should continue to receive funds despite the overwhelming evidence of corruption and the fact that 90 percent-ish of Congress voted to strike funding from ACORN.
“But it’s WRONG!” I asserted.
“But it’s a CONTRACT,” my darling, play-by-the-book husband responded.
Which got me thinking… Whether or not ACORN should continue to receive funds because of the contracts promised it, shouldn’t the government be a bit more careful about who it promises contracts to in the future? Maybe take a look at the organizations that will benefit from the trillions of dollars racing out of our pockets and into special interest groups and lobbyists under the disguise of “affordable health care” or a “clean air act.”
Maybe the government, the media, the American people should take some time to investigate the groups that will recieve so much of our money before the bills are rushed through in midnight votes and the contracts are signed.
Because some of us don’t appreciate our tax money funding slavery.
