Thread Name: BS: Spread the Truth About ACORN
Subject: RE: BS: Spread the Truth About ACORN
Recently our defense contractors like McDonel Douglas have racked up 3 billion dollars in fines regarding the 70 billion dollars in contracts in which they have been caught cheating.

Bear in mind that these fines were levied by the Bush administation which was not looking very hard for wrong doing.



If we use ACORN as an example:
do we deny all funds instead of penalizing with fines as we do with Government contractors?

nope

Even Blackwater is still on the US payroll.

ergo we should not treat ACORN more harshly for a crime of speech without action, than we do all the rest of US contractors.
