    I'm not shocked by this, as Obama has a history of looking the other way when it comes to enforcing the law on their supporters. One only needs to look at the tacit approve Obama gave the Black Panther 'Obama security detail' with their batons blocking white voters to see this trend.



    How anyone can still support this man, I'll never know. Good that he is down in the polls and his socialist agenda is losing traction every day.

    Meanwhile, actual important issues are going on.....

    I'm sorry, I don't know enough about this, but to me its small fries compared to trying to actually get **** done with this country that is getting more and more pathetic by the day as we stagnate.

    A trend is not established by one instance.
    Which man?

    You didn't really think that he would authorize the investigation of the organization that helped elect him?


    It's called The Chicago Way if you are interested....

    Perhaps because there is yet to be proof that they did anything illegal?

    This organization is required by law to submit any and all voter registrations.

    And they have absolutely no control over whether or not these allegedly false voters are even registered.

    If this organization is so allegedly backward and corrupt, how could they have been organized enough to steal an election?

    Black Magic, of course. Don't you know that all liberals are Satan worshippers? :rolleyes:;) I mean just look at my avatar. I'm sure that "666" is watermarked on all those applications. :)

    You are looking at this the wrong way round. What you should be asking is "If this Kenyan liberal progressive fascist communist was elected despite my righteous contempt, how could it have been otherwise than by means of the election being stolen?"

    Clearly you don't understand how the criminal justice system works. There was an investigation, and it was determined by the prosecutor that evidence did not warrant criminal charges.

    Nice try though.

    It's always funny how they're bitching in one thread that healthcare reform and salt bans take away their constitutional rights, but bitch in another thread that someone got their constitutional rights :rolleyes:

    Actually they do. They can change the way their canvassers are compensated based on how many registrations they turn in. Simple right? Of course no one wants free-loafers working for them, you have to demand results.



    Black-magic of course. Kind of like how Bush was such a complete Nazi retard corrupt right wing-nut that he was able to steel two elections and pull off 9/11 to bring the world to the brink financially with two wars. With one hand tied behind his back. What's the word? Diabolical?

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. ACORN only submits voter registrations. They don't approve them. They have no control over whether or not the person on registration they submit actually gets registered. If that were the case, there would be very well-documented rampant voter fraud.

    Mmmm....Bush did steal the election in 2000. A majority of Americans voted for Gore. Bush became president.

    As for 2004, the accusations by the left about voting machine fraud aren't any more credible than the ones about ACORN from the right (in my opinion).

    Clearly you don't understand how politics works.

    For example, the Black Panthers had pending civil rights charges. However, Mr. Obama dropped it all, to the displeasure of the US Civil RIghts Commission.

    Same thing here, the people who would be charged were clearly allies, and therefore got special treatment.

    Same thing in Health Care where the in-groups get the 'good treatment', the Unions get sweet heart deals, the trial lawyers get sweetheart deals, and he hides the negotiations that help give them these perks - in direct opposition to campaign pledges to hold open negotiations on CSPAN.

    Yes, it was politics that found that there were no charges that could be brought to Acorn, not the legal system. /sarcasm

    The black panther case is a whole different issue, I admit I don't know enough about it to comment, but I think you like making links that just aren't there because they fit in with your worldview, which could easily fit on the head of a pin.

    Ok, first, the civil charges were not dropped. An injunction was obtained, and charges against the less culpable were dropped from the case. The administration won the case, and elected to not pursue monetary damages. What more do you want?
    ACORN... ahhh, wow. I think it is you that doesn't understand politics. If you did, you would realize that you have been manipulated into believing ACORN did something terrible, and deserves to have everyone associated with it charged criminally.

    Why? POLITICS! Someday, maybe you'll understand.

    "Location: standing by for the Go Signal"

    What's this "go signal" you're waiting for? I have my suspicions, I'm just wondering if I'm right.

    I don't like the whole concept of voter registration drives. I think if you want to register to vote you should have to walk your lazy ass down to the County Clerks office and register in person.

    It's an abbreviation for the "GFY signal".

    Is there something wrong with wanting more people involved in voting for the future of the country? You'd think you'd want as many people as possible, regardless of how "lazy" they are. After all, its supposed to be the will of the People right, ALL the people?

    I just think people should be personally responsible for their involvement in elections. A third party who may not have the interest of the individual voter in mind is completely unnecessary and leads to things like voter fraud.

    All they do is sign people up, they don't vote for them.

    Okay then. Exactly how does registering someone to vote lead to voter fraud? Can you cite an example of this?

    What about people who are unable to secure/afford their own transportation to get registered? Are they somehow unworthy to vote?

    Clearly they should pick up a 3rd job so they can afford such things! Lazy bastards. :rolleyes:
