The attacks on ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is really ticking me off. The video I just saw of Glenn Beck with his chalkboard of the "who's who" on the ACORN Advisory Council was the straw that broke the camel's back. Is Glenn a Bircher? This is what Birchers do. They put up a bunch of pictures together with names of people who are suspects, who are communists, who are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Trilateral Commission. Since these guys and gals are on the Advisory Council, then they must be some very "bad people." The way things are going with this, these people may need to hire more security guards to protect them from the Glenn Beck nutzoids. It is up to us to get more advertisers to ban Beck's program, since Van Jones has now quit his job as the Green Jobs Czar. We have a problem here. More people are losing their jobs. I am out finding one myself. They are losing health care and people are dying while Republicans want to stall and eventually stop reform.
As colleges, vo-tech schools, and universities increase their enrollments because of many people not finding jobs and who feel they need more training, Republicans if they had it their way would like to cut off unemployment compensation as well as benefits available under the Trade Adjustment Assistance program, or TAA. We are in a world of hurt if Democrats let the GOP have their way. And when is it going to sink in for the Democrats to realize that they cannot deal with the Republicans?
Many of us if this keep going may need to rely on the help from ACORN or organizations similar to ACORN for finding jobs and adequate housing.
