You crack me up! Given all the systematic and highly illegal behavior advocated by ACORN, you focus on this?

Even if this charge sticks, Keefe is going to get a slap on the wrist, maybe probation. Big deal.

Its a small price to pay to take down today's legalized, government funded mob, ACORN.

(Given that Congress voted to yank ACORN funding and ACORN still gets government money, proves how corrupt our Federal government, with Democrats in charge, truly is!)

This is going to be nothing more than a show trial meant to scare conservatives from challenging liberal mobs like ACORN.

Translation: "Don't pay attention to the way free market Republicans have shafted the middle class...don't pay attention to Republican efforts to gut Medicare and Social Security...."

Repeat the lie often enough and nearly everyone will believe it.

Ha. I have no doubt that Kevin S. would be one to jump on Weakland's case like Grothman did, but he offers the same pseudo-rationale as the Catholic church: this would be a major offense, but it is a minor one in this case. "Big deal."

Kevin, you and Monte should get together and compare notes. From the paper today:

"Secularism emerges
as nation’s religion
A recent letter described a survey of School Board candidates and their responses to a question about teaching alternatives to evolution. The writer pointed out a Supreme Court case prohibiting the teaching of creation with the intent of advancing a religious view.
The case is not as clear-cut as the writer suggests. The court also concluded that “teaching a variety of scientific theories about the origins of humankind to school children might be validly done with the clear secular intent of enhancing the effectiveness of science instruction.” It seems there’s wiggle room.
I’m not going to argue this case. I will say public education, if it must be a platform for secularism, is unconstitutional. It is essentially anti-religious. It adopts a secular definition of science and maintains that the only true science is a secular one. Is truth not real unless it’s secular? What if it’s not? Then our schools are intentionally teaching falsehood behind blinders of secularism. The Supreme Court seems to leave room for debate.
The Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Were the signers mistaken? Without truth, without creation, without God, there are no unalienable rights. There are only opinions, and then life and liberty are at risk. The secular socialist agenda is an enemy of freedom.
The letter writer is quick to raise the specter of lawsuits. Rather than debate the merits of evolution, creation or intelligent design, let’s just threaten lawsuits and hold the religious doctrine of secularism sacred. Perhaps the Supreme Court rightly has something besides suppression of truth in mind.

MSNBC sez the naughty lads were merely trying to disable the phones to make an allegorical point about not listening. Or something.

The real moral of the story: wingnut welfare recipients should get real jobs and stop being a menace to society.
