Update 4:

Except the settled lawsuit has undoubtedly forced (ACORN has said as much) Citibank to make subprime loans to unworthy folks, similar to those previous "unworthy" people they had loaned to in the past... who just happened to be white devils like Rev. Wright warned me about...

Like those devilish white people weren't damned near 3/4's of America's population and junk, LOL.

As you were saying, ageandscholar, I'm embarrassed to admit that I've forgotten your point due to its weak, weak and even weaker than weak nature...

Try harder next time.

    Some phoney with jughead ears and a permanent suntan. I won't mention any names, but his initials are Barack Hussein Obama.

    Well - the push to have banks give loans to people who couldn't prove their ability to repay the debt started with the Carter administration. The push was strengthened during the Clinton years. PRE-President Barak Obama, as a "community organizer" certainly would have been "encouraging" people who couldn't afford to pay back loans to take advantage of the pressure from D.C. to grant such loans to the communities he was working for.

    Not sure if his involvement in this, or something else, was the cause of him being *asked* to no longer practice law. I guess both he and Michele could clear the air about that... we could look in their records, except the FIRST piece of legislation that President Obama signed was an Executive Order sealing his records. Go figure.

    Ahh, good. A Conservative asking about ACORN.

    I've been waiting to sock this question to ya....Why did the Republicans demonize ACORN and crush it to the ground, then turn around and characterize the provisions of Al Franken's Anti-Rape Bill as an attack on business [If I'm correct, Hayley Barbour said that]? While fraudulent organizations are definitely a concern, why didn't Haliburton receive the same treatment when it was revealed that they refuse their employees to take them to court, should some type of wrongdoing afflict them on the job?

    The case that brought this to wider attention was one involving a girl who was gang-raped while working in Afghanistan, then shut in a storage unit for three days. She was shot down after requesting a trial against the coworkers of Haliburton who attacked her.

    Al Franken took them to task and started the bill....Democrats and Republicans each voted against it, but the most vocal objection came from THIRTY Republicans, who voted against it, and fought for Haliburton.

    Why didn't they work harder on THAT?

    And when you guys get started on your anti-ACORN sermon, why should I take it seriously when the politicians who lead the argument complain when their own principles are applied in favor of the well-being of a rape victim?

    The only time Obama represented ACORN was when he was also representing the DOJ in enforcing the National Voter Law of 1993.

    It had nothing whatsoever to do with sub-prime loans.

    Source(s): Except that that case did not involve ACORN and did not force Citibank to give a loan - it merely stopped them using discriminatory reasons to refuse a loan. When you have been shown to be wrong, refusing to address the rebuttal other than to call it weak over and over again does not strengthen your point. Obama was a bit player in that case, he was not representing Acorn, and the case was about laws against discrimination. You are wrong on every point.

    Forced banks to loan? don't understand how banks work do you? Put the kool-aid down and step away from the fox machine, you're in danger of being turned into a parrot.

    The guy who was a failure as a lawyer over at Sidley and Austin. I think his name was B. Hussein Obama. Extortion via legal coercion was the best that Obama could muster.

  • 9 years ago

    I guess you're looking for someone to say Obama, but since he didn't have a "law license with ACORN" and didn't force subprime loans, I don't think that answer will be forthcoming.

    Edit: Oops, guess not.
