The fun begins! ACORN plans to save all the homes that would be foreclosed on if they didn't stick their nose into it. I wonder how much tax money THAT will cost us. It almost sounds like they are threatening violence. Of course, they are being careful not to phrase it that way, but you can bet that violence WILL flare up when they try to stop a home from being taken over, especially the ones already vacated that they think they can just march right back into. You know, the banks and the government are already working on a solution that is going to cost us WORKING taxpayers, who actually DO pay taxes, a fortune. Why does ACORN think they just HAVE to be a part of the problem? Can you say PAY OFF!!!!???? Here's the link to ACORN's own website article with the disgusting details. Be sure to see page two also so you can sign-up to be a "HOME DEFENDER"! TA DAT TA DA!! Is that like a superman or spiderman or wonder woman or something? Here I come to save the daaaaaay! Mighty Mouse is on his waaaay! Won't that be fun, staging a sit-in with a really cool bunch of the nicest people you ever want to meet? Just think, you can take a break from your daily grind of working just to pay for the things that Uncle Sam would be glad to give you, and why work to pay those nasty taxes, nobody else does these days. Here's the first couple of paragraphs:
On Feb. 19, ACORN members will launch a new tactic in fighting foreclosures: civil disobedience. Participants in the ACORN Home Savers campaign nationwide will simply refuse to move out of foreclosed homes, or in some cases, will move back in. ACORN homesteaders intend to squat in their homes until a comprehensive, federal solution for people facing foreclosure is put in place.
"What else can you do?" asks Louis Beverly, co-chair of the Baltimore ACORN Foreclosure Fighters. "After you've used all your legal options, your last resort is civil disobedience. We're talking about families who have been in their homes 20 or 30 years. People who are assets in the community, who look out for the elderly, who have community associations, and these are the people being kicked out of the community."
