    A scenario that has been described is that ACORN may transfer, or morph into an alternate incorporation.

    Same mission, most of the same people, same shameless criminal sleaze,…
    Same special place in the heart of our Agitator-in Chief, our own Barack Obama.

    Anyone care to offer a ‘naming contest’ -??

    Now Steve, don’t pull the namechanging card. Blackwater did the same thing, and Diebold (I think? One of the election machine companies associated with the 04 controversy).

    Diebold and Blackwater, compared to ACORN, are like comparing apple’s to road-apples.

    Blackwater has nothing to do with politics – these are former SOCOM Operators, who contract to many parts of the world, for their military skills.

    Diebold made polling machines – and for their corporate associations to come within a light-year of anything slightly partisan, would be the biggest ‘dumb-crook’ blunder.

    What do either of these two companies, have anything in their history, that is ANYTHING like the serial-criminal-thug-election fraud record, of ACORN-?

    Perhaps Blackwater may have been a little too trigger-happy,… oops-!
    Anything partisan in that-?

    What did, in all respects, Diebold do-?

    Any indictments-?
    Any convictions-?
    Anything credible asside from urban-myths-?

    Anything close to the long history ACORN has-?
    These thugs are on film-!!

    So – where exactly is the hypocracy, in poking fun at, the prospect of ACORN changing their name-?

  2. Steve T.: Clearly you are a master at the acronym, which you toss off the way Bill Evans tossed off improvizations at the piano. Still, I’ll submit my feeble entry for ACORN spin-off: CRIME: Criminal Reprobates Involved in Mendacious Enterprises.

    Vegas: Even Jimmy Hoffa’s body would be easier to track down than Nancy Pelosi’s sanity.

    Tyrone: Yo-yo-yo: what you drinkin’ tonight? Must be strong, going by your comments. Just sayn’.

    Face it Manuel: Not Diebold, not Blackwater, not NO organization or company other than ACORN would contain such a high quotient of arbitrarily selected representatives having no problem (in five cases) in helping to implement child smuggling and child prostitution. Or maybe you believe that were an undercover leftie to visit five Shriners or Knights of Columbus members he would find similar universal eagerness to indulge such unspeakable depravity?

    Manuel, Blackwater is sort of like a direction action community activist group. Only they are somewhat MORE direct in their ability to eliminate problems and or bad guys. Blackwater is not about making friends. Sometimes you need that snarling dog to care of business once in a while. While Obama is holding the bad guys at bay with his silver tongue and sincere apologies. Its nice to know there are organizations like Blackwater ready to deal with those who don’t accept the terms of “Really really sorry” as a means of ceasing violent operations against the people of the United States.

    Were you going to bring, or would you include Halliburton into this, when you noted “…et al.”-?

    If so,…
    The never-ending liberal
    derangement over “no bid contracts” is a telling example of how ignorant & detached liberals & Democrats are from the realities of the private business sector.

    Perhaps I will name my next cat, ‘Halliburton’.

    My point was, that ACORN isn’t the first to do it, and is far from the last. Acting like they’re THE ONLY ONES EVER TO DARE CHANGE THEIR NAME THOSE DAMN LIBERAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSS is what I take issue with.

    @Steve – if Halliburton has changed their name…or unloaded everything to a subsidiary group, effectively changing names that way, then yes.

    Manuel,…Perhaps we have a misunderstanding, in addition to disagreeing;

    In and of itself, a company changing its name is not what I am criticizing.
    History is replete with corporations and organizations changing their names for a variety of legitimate or other transparent circumstances.

    ACORN – given its long serial criminal & sleaze history, is not much different that Tony Soprano changing the name of sanitation company to another, so as to continue his usual activities.

    The key focus is ACORN’s shameless, lawless pattern of assorted things, to include election fraud – this is their ‘meat & potatoes’, it is the heart-beat of their existence.

    Whomever (irrespective of party) is guilty of voting or election fraud, it is an blatant & obvious threat to the foundations of our freedoms.

    The premise here is that ACORN is a non-profit organization … WE, the taxpayers finance them and their unethical & criminal actions (comparing the name changing to private companies is irrelevant and distracting) … but just like an effective “mole”, ACORN will go below the surface and find a way to resurface and continue operating … that’s all!!

    Great job Zack!!

  4. Well said, Ikabod. The “we’re really sorry we’ve been such a bad country” approach will not move a single individual miscreant on earth, acts in fact as an encouragement to their type to proceed with their attacks and venom, as witness the three separate terrorist attempts this week on our country (mainstream media may not yet have these stories). This ramping up of violence against the U.S., 9 months into Obama’s Hope/Change administration, amply prove the inneffectuality of his “let’s be friends” approach.

  5. Thanks KWM. I’d give anything to have less material to work with.

    Joseph: Smoking is fiercely, almost religiously, non-PC (on the left especially)– unless it’s done by the god Obama. Then it aquires a certain cool rebellious aspect and is never mentioned or admonished by the left once in the last 9 months.

    Good points, Steve T… I’d use your Sopranos comparison in my next ACORN cartoon except that I already referenced Tony’s gang in a recent Ted Kennedy joke.

    Nice summary, Melek. I haven’t the slightest doubt that if the country is fatally saddled with Big Health, some of the ACORN gang will be staffing it. Some may even be your next doctors, nurses or misc. health professionals –an ominous career placement for people who have difficulty differentiating between living and dead voters.

    Why is “OMAHGAWD OBAMA SMOKES HYPOCRITE!” still such a buzz topic? He’s trying to quit. And there’s nothing beneficial to be gained from smoking other than profits for the tobacco industry.

    Not even gonna get into the topic of “election fraud is the meat & potatoes of ACORN” thing because that’s just silly.

  7. Blackwater kills fourteen civilians and several employees are indicted some of them pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter. “Well, maaaaybe they were a little trigger happy, who knows, I’m sure as an organization they’re awesome.”

    ACORN reports its own employees committing voter fraud, some are indicted. “DON’T YOU SEE IT IS SYSTEMIC IT’S A CORRUPT THUG MONSTER AND ANYONE WHO HAS TOUCHED IT IS TAINTED WITH ITS DECREPIT FILTH”

  8. And everyone’s dogged use of heavily edited tapes courtesy of a demonstrably lying political operative who has pretty much zero credibility shows how little a case anyone can rationally make against ACORN. This is not a love letter to ACORN, I don’t think they’re blameless or perfect or whatever nonsense you will doubtlessly throw in my face rather than actually addressing my points.

    People on the right are upset that ACORN exists, that it helps register poor people to vote, that it helps poor people, that is contributes to the Urban Myth of WELFARE QUEENS and whatever other fanciful demon you use to denigrate poor people.

    If you relentlessly investigate any large organization and take every misdeed committed under their umbrella as a sign of monstrous endemic corruption, you will eventually be proven right. That’s the relevance of Walmart and Blackwater and every other group to this conversation. Any set of data points can be concocted into a FRIGHTENING WEB OF BOOGEYMEN.

    Butbut Chris, there are 5 letters in ACORN. And two of them, with three other letters, makes OBAMA. And we all know how OBAMA sounds like OSAMA. The proof he’s an evil socialist terrorist who wants us all to have socialist healthcare, the fiend.

  9. No Manuel, it’s his policies and positions that make him a socialist. A system of government that is diametrically opposed to the government currently in place here in the USA. What part of that do you not understand?

    People have actually made the exact argument/statement I did vegas, being totally serious about it. Great job glossing over Chris’s serious and very salient point to go after my offhanded comment tho. You sure are a great debater.

  12. I wasn’t referring to his post, I was referring to yours. Chris E will defend ACORN until the end of time, and I will no longer waste my time refuting his weak arguements. ACORN is a corrupt organization and conservatives don’t like ACORN for that reason. There are plenty of organizations that help the poor that are not corrupt. What you did was a variation of the race card and a weak one at that. Obama, Osama how clever of you.

    What really irritates me about the race card is that I have to constantly show my students how it’s not racist to criticize the president for his political views because the race card gets flung about with such reckless abandon. It’s hard enough to teach them English as it is so give it a rest.

    Let me leave you with this quote from Teddy Rooselvet

    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

    And this definition of socialism:

    socialism -noun
    “Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.”

    Healthcare is about 16% of the economy and he wants to run it. He fired the head of GM and then forced two of the three automakers to accept HIS bankruptcy deals. He wanted to void legal contracts between AIG and its employees. I could go on but I have a stack of papers to grade, lesson plans to prepare and church to attend.

    Hey Vegas,

    You and I are in strong agreement.

    From Pres. Ronald Reagan, I learned about a very important quote in our Republic’s history.

    This quote goes right to the heart of what seperates the secular-left culture, from those of us who want to preserve the original intent of the Constitution;

    Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
    –John Adams, ‘Argument in Defense of the Soldiers in the Boston Massacre Trials,’ December 1770

    For liberals, (they like “progressives”) what governs them is;
    – their inclinations
    – the dictates of [their] passion[s]

    …and, with the indoctrinations from Marxism.
    Add to this, no shame in being dishonest, no shame is being crooked,… just add water, and you have ACORN-!
    -and Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Bill Clinton (his Hilda-beast), Al Gore, Jeremiah Wright, Saul Alinski, Bill Ayers, et al.

  13. Conservatives did not like ACORN long before these manufactured scandals occured.

    You’re using an incredibly loose definition of socialism, if you believe the bills currently being debated “control” health care than the government has has “control” over the entire economy for decades.

    I am not the person who has repeatedly been snubbed when asking for specific facts. I am the person who has provided facts and asked for facts to support your contrary opinion. Instead, I am given inspiration quotations I agree with, but think you are grossly distorting.

    Please continue with your childish “nuh uh” responses, though!

  14. How manufactured are the voting fraud charges in NV and other states? The AG here is a Democrat so you can’t use her party against her either.

    I did provide plenty of links in an earlier cartoon Chris E but you either failed to read them or simply ignored them.

    And I had never heard of ACORN until this election when the voter fraud charges began to pop up around the country.

    And if the government has a public option and the same government also sets the rules for health insurance companies what the hell do you call it?

    If you really wanted to make it more affordable all you would have to do is to allow us to buy insurance from across state lines, make insurance portable and enact real tort reform. We can buy all sorts of things from across state lines why not health insurance? Competition is what breeds lower prices and better products after all.

  15. Excellent suggestions though these are, Vegas, they would clash mightily with the Leftist Dream. Your suggestions speak of choice… freedom… individuality, whereas Chris E, like Marx and Obama, believes in a strait-jacketing of the human soul into one big Hive where individuality is crushed and nobody can rise to the higher level to which his soul leads him– whether it be more individually tailored healthcare, greater prosperity, or what have you. Such personal elevation, bringing a person closer to his dreams and above some of his less ambitious neighbors, would gain him the resentment and jealousy of less inspired or hardworking sorts (and from the leftists who seek to give voice to their reductive, one-size-fits-all vision). So the dreamers must be brought to heel. (For more detail see Orwell’s 1984 or Huxley’s Brave New World, nightmarish dystopias both, from which Obama and the Obamites seem to draw their society-shaping inspiration.)

    Oh come on Zack, you’re seriously using 1984 to support your views? That’s pathetic. He would be a rabid leftist today and you know it. Next you’ll be telling us that Colbert is REALLY on your side.

  16. Let’s see… DHS has memo about extreme right wing terrorists that fit a large portion of Americans, the White House has that deal with they ‘fishy’ email for citizens to use if things don’t smell right, the democratic leadership routinely slimes anyone who dares disagree with them (you know nazis, evilmongers et al) and the race card gets played more times than penny slot machines on the Las Vegas strip and the press no longer does it’s job, one that the founders considered so important they gave them special protection in the Constitution.

    1984 indeed…

    The same DHS Bush set up.

Is this true?” The race card bogeyman that’s just plain silly when there are people who STILL think Obama is a Kenyan Muslim. An elderly census worker getting LYNCHED in Kentucky.

    Yep, that sure sounds like 1984 to me vegas.

    err, “to forward emails saying such and such thing.” Mis-typed and all. You can see what I’m getting at.

    And the Bush era DHS could detain people for whatever reason the saw fit pretty much in accordance with the Patriot Act. In addition to a costly war that was originally started because “THOSE DAMN AL KAYDERS” then “WE KNOW SADDAM HAS WEAPONS.” Then “Well he didn’t have them it turns out BUT HE COULD HAVE WE HAD TO STOP HIM BEFORE HE DID.”

    I’m just trying to make sure everyone knows that Geroge Orwell was a socialist. He wrote 1984 about the possibility of a dystopian future where one man kept a shred of independent thought in a right-wing dictatorship that kept an inhuman degree of control over the populace. Here is a short passage from ‘Why I joined the Independent Labour Party,’ an essay he wrote in 1938:

    “For some years past I have managed to make the capitalist class pay me several pounds a week for writing books against capitalism. But I do not delude myself that this state of affairs is going to last forever … the only régime which, in the long run, will dare to permit freedom of speech is a Socialist régime. If Fascism triumphs I am finished as a writer – that is to say, finished in my only effective capacity. That of itself would be a sufficient reason for joining a Socialist party.”

    And my question about “Obama is such a hypocrite for smoking!” still stands. Seriously. There are NO benefits to be gained from smoking, so why do people freak out so much about taxes on it going up? It hurts “those leaching welfare queens” just as much as “the good upstanding working man.” Plus, yknow, no benefits to em AT ALL aside from profiting the tobacco industry.

    “For some years past I have managed to make the capitalist class pay me several pounds a week for writing books against capitalism. But I do not delude myself that this state of affairs is going to last forever … the only régime which, in the long run, will dare to permit freedom of speech is a Socialist régime.

    Really should have made just one post, but oh well. Here’s what that Shakespeare quote means. It’s broken up a lot, because it’s sort of complicated.

    Some context: the character of a queen in a play within Hamlet is vehemently affirming her love for her husband, the king.

    Hamlet is watching the play with the woman who says that line you quoted, Zack: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

    The woman watching the play began to suspect that the queen in the play within Hamlet wasn’t in love with the king at all, because she’s acting far too much in love.

    It’s like asking an embarrassing question to a small child. They’ll say it’s not true so many times that you’ll start to think it’s true. This works the same way, but in Hamlet, that situation is reversed.

    Politics aside, I feel I have to comment on a couple of things, given my name here.

    Zack, as Liam says, you’ve completely misinterpreted that Shakespeare quote. It is in no way even applicable to this line of comments, this cartoon, or the issues you’re trying to discuss.

    Additionally Obama’s government or political philosophy can in no way be represented by both 1984 and Brave New World. Yes, they both portray futuristic dystopias, but to try and imply there’s a philosophical parallel in any way between them is to essentially admit to never having read one or both.

    [“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

    –Shakespeare]

    How many more misunderstood cursory name-drop references are you guys going to vomit up pretending to know or have read anything at all? Is there ever a point you reach after being shown just how many ways you’re wrong where you actually turn inward and realize, on some level, that your political beliefs and protestations are an incoherent farce?

  18. Soy, Longfellow, Liam, and all other ladies who doth protest too much: Of course it is grammatically true that the term “protest” we understand today is not that which Shakespeare had in mind here (he meant “affirm”), but: 1) the famous quote is popularly understood to follow the currently accepted meaning for “protest,” and 2) your priggish outrage over this issue is beside the point, self-congratulatory and utterly irrelevant. The comment in question was one in which I critiqued certain commentors here who had risen to a fervent tizzy after my comparison of Obamism to the dystopias of 1984 and Brave New World. [And by the way, inasmuch as these books detail the nightmare existence of nations dominated by Big Government, my point stands vis-a-vis their similarity to many Obamist goals. As Dennis Prager has wisely pointed out, “The bigger the government, the smaller the people”– an absolutely unambiguous damnation of the kind of centralized, dehumanizing, Statist “utopias” outlined in both of these books and also in many of Obama & company’s schemes.] But to my original point: whether the outraged comment-cacophany that arose after my dystopia comparison was hysterically “protesting” my point or hysterically “affirming” their disagreement with it, is rather childishly irrelevant; the common factor to both is the suspiciously hysterical defensiveness on display, and it was that factor which I had addressed in quoting from Shakespeare.

    Not putting words into your mouth when you said, and I quote. “The only good they can do for mankind is to swig copious amounts of Drano.” That’s you fully endorsing people who disagree with you, Liberals in this case, should kill themsels. There’s no other way you can spin it.

    Everything else you said is a red herring for this bit of “debate” because, again. Your exact words were “The only good they can do for mankind is to swig copious amounts of Drano.”

    There’s your trouble, Sparky – you seem to think everyone here should engage in “debate” with you, author included. But that’s not what I’m here to do, and the sooner you get that into your thick skull the better.

    On top of that, you’re the one eating all that “red herring.” What kind of tartar sauce, or better yet, w(h)ine would you like with that? (of course I can mix a little bit of Drano in there if you like) 😉

    Seriously, Manny… put a sock in it.

    Recommends a board game in which kids “learn” “why Marxism is superior,” and it calls me a retard. Hoo boy. This place is getting crazier and crazier. More grist for Zack’s mill. 😉

    And Manny, if you’re still unable to decipher the hidden meanings behind these little emoticons (THIS IS A HINT, STUPID) then you’re a bigger fool than I thought. Seriously, put a sock in it.

    I have one damning truth about you, Manny: you have no sense of humor. Well, either that or it’s been seriously diminished by your apparent crusade to turn us all into Obama-worshiping political correctness junkies. I’m not the one getting all butt-hurt over a joke about drinking Drano. You, on the other hand are. In fact, you’re so uptight that – well, I’ve no need to repeat the old joke about coal, a certain orifice, five minutes and Tiffany cuff links.

    In fact, the more you make yourself look like some kind of moral police officer for a site that isn’t yours (“He would even JOKE about suicide? How DARE he!”) the more I’m ready to retract the joke part of it in your case.

    Run along now, Sparky, I’m bored of you.

    Oh I have a sense of humor, but not for humorless people like yourself. Joking about wanting people to kill themselves because you don’t agree politically is not funny. You don’t know a thing about me. If you actually had made a decent joke, I’d be amused. But jokes about killing people you don’t agree with is not funny, nor is suicide.

    Please do tell that “joke” though because I don’t know it.

    Jakey: Disappear in your own words… right back down that river and up your own ass. You got nothin’, pus-sucker.

    Manny: I’m the one laughing up a storm over this whole thing and you’re calling me “humorless”? Good God. I’m willing to wager that you suffer from South Park Derangement Syndrome.

    As for the joke: You’re so uptight that if they took a lump of you know what and stuck it up you know what, after you know how long they’d pull out you know what. In your case, however, it’s not really funny, because… well, it’s not a joke.

    Why is it that everyone responding to Manuel and me has to get so… angry? Almost every response has this aloofness and venomous spite that’s entirely uncalled for.

    Do you remember when Ronald Reagan was President, and the USS Vincennes launched missiles at Iran Flight 655? You know, the commercial airplane with 290 civilians, all of whom died because we thought they might be communists? And the official US government response was, and I quote:

    “I will never apologize for the United States — I don’t care what the facts are… I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy.” -Vice President George H. W. Bush

    That’s a lot closer to 1984 or Brave New World than anything Obama’s proposing. The idea that we can never be wrong or make mistakes, or that we never have to apologize because we’re just too good to apologize. That’s actually one of the major themes in 1984: the government IS NEVER WRONG. That the US government is apologizing for what’s happened in the past is the exact opposite of anything in either of those books.

    And besides that, the meaning of the word ‘protest’ today has no bearing on the meaning of the quote, nor does how it is “popularly understood.” This isn’t Wonderland: simply believing does not make it so. That you don’t care what the quote means has no bearing on its significance.

    And about “The bigger the government, the smaller the people.” That’s not true. France, the United Kingdom, and Canada all have larger governments (not in the sense of size, but in the sense of how involved the government is with the country) than the United States does. And yet, the general populace of these countries has a greater control over their governments than we do over ours. This is because in each of those countries, the government is controlled by the people much more directly. The French government is afraid of the French people, and rightly so: they exercise an amount of control over their government that everyone in the US can only dream about. Their government is much more pervasive than ours is, but the people are (to use Prager’s metaphor) larger than us because they retain their power as citizens to a far greater degree than we do.

    “they retain their power as citizens to a far greater degree than we do.”

    Butbutbut, we have the 2nd Amendment, so our people have more guns. Everyone knows that the size of your “peoplehood” is based on the size of your arsenal.

    Guns are the solution to everything, might makes right, Reagan is Jesus, if the US killed them they weren’t civilians because the US is never wrong, we should only distrust the government when a black man is in charge, abortion is murder but murdering civilians is freedom, welcome to the Republican Party.
