ACORNS Jumping In The Courts!

Three news items about ACORN and their fight against the right wing today –

This First one is un-Constitutional, and I don’t think could stand up under Court challenge. ESPECIALLY since the SCOTUS granted “person-hood” to corporations. This one is a violation of the corporate person’s Civil Rights – and might be subject to Criminal, as well as Civil penalties in my view.

ACORN Gives Up Ohio Business License, Won’t Return

The community organizing group ACORN has agreed to give up its Ohio business license and not return under another name, as it has in other states, under a settlement struck with a libertarian center that sued it.

U.S. District Judge Herman Weber, in Cincinnati, signed off on the deal, which settles claims brought by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law against ACORN’s voter registration practices. Other terms of the deal are confidential.

The center alleged in a lawsuit filed in 2008 that ACORN’s voter registration drives amounted to organized crime because the group turned in a pattern of fraudulent forms.

Center attorney Maurice Thompson said restricting ACORN’s ability to support or enable other groups to ”do what they do” was crucial to the deal, especially in a state he characterized as ”ground zero” to their voter advocacy efforts.

This one is from Breitbart “hisself” – which means it doesn’t have much credibility.

Court Dismisses ACORN Suit vs. ‘Pimp’, ‘Hooker’ and Breitbart.com

A state court in Baltimore has dismissed ACORN’s lawsuit against James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Breitbart.com LLC after the plaintiffs failed to serve the complaint on the defendants within Maryland’s 120-day limit.

And last, but not least, Constitutional vindication of ACORN. Now, those of you with strong stomachs can read the one from Faux News, with a decided “Fair and Balanced” slant from the Faux Outhouse News Outlet… Read the rest of this entry »

A Change in the Winds

The Health Care debate, and wild hysteria on  the right has finally pushed Democrats to the wall, much like a misbehaving child’s screams and tantrums finally push accommodating and loving parents into instituting quiet time in the corner, or for less patient parents…

Bringing out the “switch”.

What’s gathering here is the push-back, against Republican hysteria, Republican lies, and Republican racism, and over-the-top accusations against the President, Bill in Congress, and resistance to any sort of rational debate…

This first one is an ass whippin’ delivered by Representative Allen Grayson to Republican Georgia Congressman Paul Broun. Keep in mind here that Broun graduated Harvard Law School with honors, and was later a law clerk in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (1984-85) under Robert Bork, Ruth Ginsburg, and Antonin Scalia – so you’d think he would know his stuff about the Constitution. Broun knows damn well that the bill proposed by Republicans to deny any contracts by the Federal Government to ACORN, and ONLY ACORN  is unconstitutional…

This second video is of Senator Al Franken, who a lot of folks seem to want to underestimate because of his background as an entertainer. The person being questioned is Elizabeth Edwards from the Hudson Institute, who is testifying opposing Health Care Reform –

The Adults, indeed have reached the end of their patience.
