4. No because if the Republicans couldn't pay for their prostitutes,
it might wreck the economy, they're too big to fail.

3. More from his twitter account-
"In the Democratic Congress, MoveOn was condemned, ACORN defunded, telecoms immunized, Bush eavesdropping approved, Wall St. bailed out."

5. so what?
did they do it on the floor of congress/in their political capacity? did they facilitate child sex trafficker

i could not care less if ACORN employees were boinking prostitutes on their own time.

i have a problem with them using federal monies to facilitate child sex trafficking and using federal monies to tell purported criminals how to evade paying taxes and how to file false documents

6. Their salary is federally funded.
Their very livelihood depends on federal funding. The taxpayers paid for their prostitutes.

7. rubbish
if you can;'t distinguish the difference between boinking a pros on your own time (i don't even think prostitution should be illegal, and i could not give a flying fuck if a politician solicits one), and USING your job (and federal monies) to help a PIMP ( i don't look down on prostitutes. i LOATHE pimps, and i have dealt with plenty of them. ) facilitate his child sex trafficking ring, then you aren't being intellectually honest.

i don't care if a senator (or an ACORN employee) uses their salary to break victimless crimes. if ACORN employees are smokin' pot or boinking pros' , i do not care.

but that's not what they did

sorry, analogy fail

10. really....just about the entire Bush II era represented a vast
criminal conspiracy, designed (quite successfully) to effect the largest transfer of wealth in human history from public to private coffers

they weren't incompetent, which is the way the M$M, and most hapless/feckless/complicit dempols chose to interpret the era of government-enabled corporate criminality. they were successful beyond their wildest dreams, and my wildest nightmares, even knowing at the onset, as I did, that this was the worst group of venal monsters ever assembled, including the Nixon and Reagan admins (lookit all the similar names infesting all three regimes, all criminally effectuated, btw)

11. But... but... but, they're white rich men! Move along. Move along.
Meanwhile, white racists with billions of dollars backing them take on an organization who work day in and day out to assist poor folks, let's destroy them.

Oh.

And paulsby is an oligarchy supporting ass.
