On the Acorn thing
The only thing I will say is that is what the ACORN employees did is no worse than the mortgage brokers 3 years ago were doing when they were giving out ARMs to anyone with a pulse.

5. I'm pretty sure someone could have walked into a mortgate broker
in 2006 with the same story and walked out with a house.

11. That wasn't the comparison in the OP
And if someone did do that they should get reamed for it.

16. A Real Hate Crime
I have to put this here because I can't start a thread yet.

FBI: Beating at Cracker Barrel may be hate crime

http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/09/16/cracker.barrel.beat...

This is a bad story.
Take a look at the picture of the slime ball.
If that is his booking picture it shows savage hostility.
You are looking at a white savage, and a real racist.

I hope that they throw the book at this piece of *expletive deleted*.
