Last I checked, ACORN is just a bunch of goofs running a community action group or something.
Seriously, ACORN is like, the Right's version of the Discordian 'FNORD'.
from wikipedo-- I mean, wikipedia:
"The Illuminatus! Trilogy
Main article: The Illuminatus! Trilogy
In these novels, the interjection "fnord" is given hypnotic power over the unenlightened. Under the Illuminati program, children, while still in grade school, are taught to be unable to consciously see the word "fnord". For the rest of their lives, every appearance of the word subconsciously generates a feeling of uneasiness and confusion, and prevents rational consideration of the subject. This results in a perpetual low-grade state of fear in the populace. This in turn perpetuates the need for Government, because without fear, people don't need Government.
In the Shea/Wilson construct, fnords are scattered liberally in the text of newspapers and magazines, causing fear and anxiety in those following current events. However, there are no fnords in the advertisements, encouraging a consumerist society. It is implied in the books that fnord is not the actual word used for this task, but merely a substitute, since most readers would be unable to see the actual word."
negative 3 on a post about getting together and building a memorial park for the troops and victims of 911.
If you'd rather they spent untold amounts of money on some stupid building that'll just be another target for these psychos, then I can se you could give a damn about the troops, the citizens of the country, or ANYONE.
Stop trying to jive all of us with your 'PATRIOTISM'. LIbertarian/Republican Patriotism is obviously an elaborate troll on the country.
All these jerks like limbaugh and hannity and even Beck are just telling you what you want to hear for money.
none of have you any GUTS.
I hope alot of people read this before the mods/admins delete it.
so much for freedom of speech, so much for reconciliation, so much for unity.
Like I posted earlier, we should build a memeorial wall to the victims and the troops who have died in our service overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.
we should never forgive and never forget.
I think this is something we COULD all get together on and force New York Fat Cats to to do it.
either that, or the Vril Society.
I think we should never rebuild those building in any form, I think it's disrespectful, as it's like trying to replace a loved one.
Build a memorial wall dedicated to the Victims of 911 and also the TROOPS who fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan.
NEVER FORGIVE, NEVER FORGET.
About time someone mentions THAT little clause.
Does that mean I should report this site and Fox News as Rendering Aid to Domestic Terrorists?
I think it does... /me goes to pick up the phone...
yeah, I mentioned that bit.
You also don't know the emotional and physical stress and pain involved in this work.
many of my coworkers have gone to therapy over it.
Have you ever been IN an underfunded (gotta kill that PORK) institution, and watch these people suffer and get sick and have sores and staph infections and leaking G-Tubes and painfully large hydrocephalic heads, not knowing why this is happening, and alot of the time even who anyone is.
And some of them even have full mental capacity, but are trapped in their own bodies, and there's just you and 16 of them to care for over 16 hour shifts.
A nearby institution is being cut off of federal funding, because people have died due to the lack of proper care. And the primary reason for this is that we just don't have the FUNDS to buy the manpower, train the manpower, to buy good quality supplies and enforce standards and practices protocols.
We have to rely on TEMPS most of the time. People right off the street get a week course and are expected to run Behavior Modification Programs as assigned by Psychologists you can never find. They usually never last two days, so theres all these strangers running around doing ignorant things, and confusing-- sometimes terrifying-- my charges.
HAVE YOU ever had to sit with a person who has a five year old's level of intelligence, strong as an ox, absolutely destroying everything and everyone because the one thing they get to have, for example, a toy car, was stolen from him by another resident, and for 8 hours you have to sit and try to talk him down from opening his head on the table and pulling the wound apart.
And you are still trying to care for the 15 others, usually by yourself, and sometimes with a kid right off the street who doesn't know S from shinola.
But no, instead of giving us the money to care for these people, that CAN'T care for themselves, can't appeal to ANYBODY for help, sometimes because they simply can't communicate...
we buy another bomb and start a stupid war and never worry about your countrymen, and the helpless, who you all seem to love to degrade.
And I take exception to anyone saying that this is not real sacrifice.
We have to watch these people wither and die, trying our best, and always failing because we simply don't have enough resources, and nobody has the balls to try their best like us.
I honor your service, and it is HIGHLY disrespectful to degrade ours, to diminish our long, hard struggle and self-sacrifice for the helpless brothers and sisters among us.
That isn't Christian, it isn't American.
I never complain like this, it just needs to be said. We all do our part, and we all deserve respect, although the Armed Forces deserve the Highest Respect.
and that I give
