colbernation.... shows videos of some liberal talk show host trying to use the "ridicule method of mind control" (aka, label something as ridiculous, and no matter how correct it is people would be afraid to even question it... sounds like "get this people, they say that you could save gas by... INFLATING YOUR TIRES! I can not make this up!"). It doesn't help that he has a "fake laugh" soundtrack play along every now and then.
And his arguments are retarded too.
apparently you didnt even bother to watch many (if any at all) of his videos. ever since his own bid for the white house was crushed, colbert has been rooting for McCain (at least on every single show ive seen). and would that "ridicule method of mind control" include cracking jokes about McCain's brother calling 911 to comlpain about traffic? or making fun of ACORN because of their name? Colbet cracks jokes & does stupid things to illistrate his points. for instance, on 1 of his shows, he makes fun of McCain for bringing up his time as a POW so much. Hes trying to bring to the attention of his veiwers the fact that McCains used to answer many questions that usually have nothing to do with his past in any way, with the whole POW speech. hes not brainwashing you hes giving you something to think about.
Acorn... where to begin... what does acorn do?
1. Register (unemployed?) liberals to vote, thus further undermining our economy, military, and government. (this is their STATED purpose and the one that they are open about)
If they just tried to register everyone, and encouraged political discourse where people could come and argue their points it would be fine.
thats funny, ive never heard, read, or even seen any evidence of ACORN registering only liberals. & how is helping citizens excercise their right to vote undermine the country? isnt the right to vote part of the basis of our country?
2. Put pressure on the government to deregulate sub par lending, thus helping facilitate the housing crisis. (also part of their stated purpose).
3. Harass, stalk, and threatened bank execs to make them give out more sub par lowns. (some of it is stated, using demonstrations for example)
4. Sue banks to help them force more sub par lowns.
6. Work on silencing conservatives. (such as the case recently with the claim of threats to obama's life, but for some reason they cannot produce the record of the phone call their representative made).
ive already said that im not a fan of everything ACORN does, so unless you missed that part, then all of that was just to make ACORN look bad (which is totally unnesseccary for anyone who actually did their homework)
5. Bulk register fake votes and use them to vote democrat.
FactCheck.org has a more accurate take on Obama's association with Acorn. It has to be noted that there is no evidence of fraud on the part of Acorn, only of employees trying to meet quotas to keep their jobs.
i think that covers that. & even if ACORN was responsible, then they would need an awful lot of "Mickey Mouse" IDs.
7. Hire convicted criminals to handle the voter registrations (lets rehabilitate criminals by giving them all the info they need to steal a person's identity or plan out some crimes).
well how else would you rehabilitate them? if you cant trust them with having other people fill out forms then what can you trust them with? and do you really think that ACORN would allow the "elite hackers or Identity theives" of the local jails to go unescorted? i doubt it.
The absurd thing is that people protect them. The entire stated purpose of the organization is criminal and harmful to society, and any orginization IS responsible by law for the actions of its employees, why? because they facilitate those harmful actions by not having proper checks and balances, observations, internal oversight, etc...
its not that absurd, think about it. wouldnt you defend the person who gave you a voice? would you jail the person who is responsible for your ability to make a difference in the world? I would hate to be that person if so.
Acorns state purpose?
ACORN's priorities have included: better housing and wages for the poor, more community development investment from banks and governments, and better public schools. ACORN pursues these goals through demonstration, negotiation, legislation, and voter participation.
is that so bad? personally i could use a better house, better pay would b good too. it makes sense that people who hear about ACORN's stated purpose but havent heard about some of the worse things ACORN has done to defend them.
A couple of bad eggs is out of proportion. Multiple states investigating improprieties and felons coming forward with their stories is a deserved reputation. It is a shame you would be associated with such an organization.,That speaks to your character (or lack thereof).
It speaks more of yours to judge someone you dont even know. especially if you happen to call yourself Christian. (not saying you do, but there is that possibility) and for the record, i have nothing to do with ACORN, im just standing up for them because they are recieving a lot more flak than they should.
