I hear they'll start hearings on making Pan-AM the official airline of the House soon.
 
2013-06-04 01:18:00 PM  
At least the IRS isn't singling out ACORN for scrutiny of their tax-exempt status, just because of their name. That would be a SCANDAL!

There's that laser-like focus on jobs, jobs jobs promised by the House leadership.

What I believe this bill is supposed to do is to prevent any federal funds from going to any group that was a subsidiary, ever affiliated, or was started by somebody that had any type of ties to the former ACORN. Basically they don't want anybody doing any ACORN type activities even though ACORN never did anything remotely wrong or illegal. Basically proving the point that they want people to remain uniformed of their rights disenfranchised.

Here's something I noticed the other day. Numerologically speaking (and of course I am speaking of a 6-point numerological scale, some people use 2 or 3 or even 4 point scales but trust me they don't know what they're doing), Acorn has a value of 306. That really doesn't mean much of anything, I'm afraid, but if you add up the value-weighted digits in 306 (3+6), you get 9. Multiply 9 by 306, what do you get?

2754.

OK, that's interesting by itself, but take a close look at the last two digits there: 5 and 4. Notice something? Right, they add up to 9. As do the first digits (2+7). So what we're looking at here is a triple 9 factor, a real power indicator. We need to account for that by taking a single, double, and triple 9 (9+19+27) and adding that to 2754. Total? 2808.

Ok. Interesting, still. Let's take a closer look at this number. 2+8+10=18. We're in the second variable of our determination, which means we divide. 2808/18=156.

Now it's time to go back to our 6-scale numerology. That's the natural value of Z, but you can also get there by adding together G (42) and S (114). GS. Know anyone with those initials?

George Soros.

Now, 156 is the Zeta value, so we only use his last name. SOROS equals 516, which by itself would be fairly meaningless, but his actual name is a palindrome...aka, it's the same going forward or backward. This portents great power, so we must count his name twice, for a total of 1032. Now add Acorns' value (306) in, and what do you have?

1338.

Seem innocuous? You're forgetting to add them up. 1+3+3+8=15. So, 15. Remember that. Now add back the power number of 9, for 24. 24 is the numerological value of D, the fourth letter of the alphabet. Fourth letter, fourth month....4/15. Anything significant happen on that date? 4/15 ring a bell to you?

That's right, tax day. It's all there, subby. Acorn, George Soros, the IRS and its slowly unfolding corruption and scandal. The insidious power of groups like Acorn never goes away, subby. It's always there, waiting. You just have to know how to look.

Jennifer Hing, a spokeswoman for House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), defended the passages as routine language that House Republicans always include. "These provisions are typically carried every year in appropriations bills," Hing said.

Even if we accept that argument (ridiculous as it is), these are the same people who biatch that legislation is too long for their wittle brains to handle.

And you know what?  Stupid and unnecessary habits should be broken.  Not used as a justification for nonsense and a waste of legislative time.

So basically they got to hold ceremonial and meaningless votes against ACORN, Black Panthers and Karl Marx just so they can go back to their DERPY Districts in a year and run  television ads saying "I voted against militant and uppity darkies as your representative, and you if you re-elect me I'll continue to put to a stop to  Chairman Fartbanjo's agenda".

So why is it wrongly partisan for the IRS to look into right wing groups  to see if they are following the law but it's ok for Republicans in congress to defund groups like ACORN on a completely political basis?

It was probably the same reason I did. You were trying to be "open minded" about things. Later then I realized voting for any Republican gave the one's that are the most conservative more power. That the "liberal" Republicans was really just a trick to give the Republican Party more power.

No, a bill of attainder is for criminal charges to deprive someone of (usually) civil rights.  Congress passes funding bills targeting specific organizations all the time.  It's called a budget.

(Note, I don't agree with what they're doing here.  Just pointing out the attainder argument doesn't work.)

But think about what they are doing. By passing this they are looking to defund any group that has ever been associated with ACORN in any way. So lets say that Planned Parenthood did work with ACORN, then they would be able to defund Planned Parenthood. If the NAACP ever did any work with ACORN, then they could defund the NAACP. Lets say a public school system did work with ACORN, then they could defund that public school system.

Since ACORN was a community activism group they did work with a lot of different entities in poor communities. This is just a round about way for Republicans to crush a lot of those "liberal" groups, and a way to further push their agendas.

That's all well and good, but your argument has one huge gaping hole - 2+8+10 = 20, not 18.  Please clarify how this affects the rest of your results.  Or were you doing 2+8+8?  In that case, what about the 0 in 2808? 2+80+8 = 90, maybe that's what you were looking for.

According to TFA, the bills don't define successors--but mention ACORN by name. And your explanation is too logical. You need to think politically about this, not in terms of policy. What is happening is that current House Republicans are doing this so they are not vulnerable to any primary challengers who could "technically" claim they didn't vote to defund ACORN, therefore sozializms. Its all about protecting their own hides from their base, which is even less intelligent than they are.

FTA

Struggling with the bad publicity and loss of federal funds, ACORN dissolved in early 2010. Just to be sure, however, Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) included this language in a government funding bill introduced on May 28 of this year: "None of the funds made available in this Act may be distributed to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) or its subsidiaries or successors."

Section 545 of a bill put forward the next day by Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) delves still deeper into faux certainty, extending the funding ban to "any prior appropriations Act."

In fact, ACORN has no subsidiaries, because it has not existed for three years. Neither bill defines "successors," but the broad language of the original 2009 funding ban left little room for leeway, extending to "Any State chapter of ACORN registered with the Secretary of State's office in that State," "any organization that shares directors, employees, or independent contractors with ACORN," and any organization that "employs" someone "indicted" for violations that ACORN was initially charged with.


Like I said, the specific purpose of this is to go after any group that has ever had anything to do with ACORN or is run by or has anybody employed for them that has ever had anything to do with ACORN. It is just a round about way of defunding things that they would never be able to get the votes to defund otherwise.

Pocket Ninja: OK, that's interesting by itself, but take a close look at the last two digits there: 5 and 4. Notice something? Right, they add up to 9. As do the first digits (2+7). So what we're looking at here is a triple 9 factor, a real power indicator. We need to account for that by taking a single, double, and triple 9 (9+19+27) and adding that to 2754. Total? 2808.

It's like the movie Terminator.  If they write a bill de-funding ACORNthen send the billback in time to 2007, they can change the timeline and make John McCain president. It's the only way we can prevent Judgement Day. The only problem is they took money away from the sciences, so they're having interns spin in circles in the parking lot until one of them ends up in 2007. It's not going well.

I had some minor contact with ACORN when it existed in my area. My impression was the local group mainly focused on housing problems - e.g. helping poor people force their landlords to fix a broken toilet.

They had their focus and networked with all the other poor-aid groups (food banks, women's shelters, etc.) to come up with some help for their clients. It seems all of these other organizations could be banned for this association.

The Republican perspective seems to be that if poor people want aid organizations then they should pay for them themselves.

jaerik: Heron: ongbok: What I believe this bill is supposed to do is to prevent any federal funds from going to any group that was a subsidiary, ever affiliated, or was started by somebody that had any type of ties to the former ACORN. Basically they don't want anybody doing any ACORN type activities even though ACORN never did anything remotely wrong or illegal. Basically proving the point that they want people to remain uniformed of their rights disenfranchised.

Wouldn't that be a bill of attainder; a law that singles out a specific class of people or organizations for legal punishment without trial?

No, a bill of attainder is for criminal charges to deprive someone of (usually) civil rights.  Congress passes funding bills targeting specific organizations all the time.  It's called a budget.

(Note, I don't agree with what they're doing here.  Just pointing out the attainder argument doesn't work.)


Bill of Attainder doesn't apply to just criminal charges.  Similar stunts like this have been attempted and they've all been struck down as Bills of Attainder.  The GOP tried this back in 2009 and it was struck down as well.

I believe we should legalize prostitution and help them unionize. Sisterhood of the ladys of the night we'd call it.

I would legalize pot to the same extent as alcohol.

I would cut the defense budget by 60 percent.

Finally i would push for a government takeover of the private sector and put caps on executive compensation.

So no i don't think i would get elected.

2754.

So what we're looking at here is a triple 9 factor, a real power indicator. We need to account for that by taking a single, double, and triple 9 (9+19+27) and adding that to 2754. Total? 2808.

Ok. Interesting, still. Let's take a closer look at this number. 2+8+10=18. We're in the second variable of our determination, which means we divide. 2808/18=156.

Now it's time to go back to our 6-scale numerology. That's the natural value of Z, but you can also get there by adding together G (42) and S (114). GS. Know anyone with those initials?

George Soros.

Now, 156 is the Zeta value, so we only use his last name. SOROS equals 516, which by itself would be fairly meaningless, but his actual name is a palindrome...aka, it's the same going forward or backward. This portents great power, so we must count his name twice, for a total of 1032. Now add Acorns' value (306) in, and what do you have?

1338.

Seem innocuous? You're forgetting to add them up. 1+3+3+8=15. So, 15. Remember that. Now add back the power number of 9, for 24. 24 is the numerological value of D, the fourth letter of the alphabet. Fourth letter, fourth month....4/15. Anything significant happen on that date? 4/15 ring a bell to you?

That's right, tax day. It's all there, subby. Acorn, George Soros, the IRS and its slowly unfolding corruption and scandal. The insidious power of groups like Acorn never goes away, subby. It's always there, waiting. You just have to know how to look.

But in the fall of 2009, Congress banned federal funding for ACORN using broad language that applied to "any organization" that had been charged with breaking federal or state election laws, lobbying disclosure laws or campaign finance laws or with filing fraudulent paperwork with any federal or state agency. The funding ban also extended to any employees, contractors or others affiliated with any group so charged.

Don't you understand?  Groups like that no matter the name actually empower poor people, makes them harder to exploit, and gives them a political voice(some for the first time).  That is an extremely alarming situation for "job creators" and other wealthy/privileged people who feel their position in life entitles them to a greater voice in how the nation is run than "poor people"; because the "poor people" strawman is "lazy", wants everything for free from the government, and are leeches on society.  While complaining about a government "big brother", they want to be the "corporate big brother" in their employees lives (look at the controversy over employers wanting to deny employees contraception coverage based on the employer's religious beliefs, with the employee having no say despite it being the employee's body and health being addressed).  Again, groups like ACORN prevent that.

Republicans aren't "anti-big government", they are just "anti-big government helping the working class and poor".  If it is a rich person or company that donate$ a lot, well that is different.  "Big government" is OK then because it is maintaining the status quo and the fiscally based "caste system" which they want to create out of American society.
