It’s ACORN!!

Acorn Breaks into Home

Some community activists could face criminal charges after breaking into a home in Southeast Baltimore.

Police were at the home Thursday night looking for fingerprints and other evidence.

The activists who staged the break-in belong to the Association of Community Organizations For Reform Now or ACORN.

After snapping a lock with bolt cutters, ACORN member Louis Beverly told supporters “this is our house now.”

ACORN staged the demonstration to protest the foreclosure crisis sweeping the nation.

The home in the 300 block of Ellwood Avenue used to be owned by Donna Hanks. She lost this home in September, after owning it since 2001. When things got tough she struggled to make her payments. Her mortgage? $1995 a month. Her income? $2200. Donna’s story is one that ACORN is taking a stand against.

How stimulus plan creates nation of squatters

I’m sorry, we’re supposed to have sympathy for someone who takes out a a $1995 a month mortgage on $2200 in income? Gee, think that’s maybe a little too much house there? Is home ownership some sort of Obama given entitlement now? And just how is AcORN trespassing and squatting going to pay the mortgage?

And who pays for ACORN? You do.

Stimulus Includes $2 Billion in Neighborhood Stabilization Fund

Those advocates will be happy to learn that the final compromise bill includes $2 billion for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. That’s less than the $4.2 billion passed by the House, but surely better than nothing. After all, it was the housing crisis at the root of this recession.

Is anyone stupid enough to believe that a sizable chunk of that $2 billion won’t go to ACORN? That’ll pay for a whole lot more illegal break ins, trespassing, and squatters.

/your tax dollars at work, the Obama way

I Voted For Obama And All I Got Was This Lousy $13 A Week

Remember on the campaign trail when Obama hammered home, again and again, his promise to give tax relief to 95% of Americans?

Well, here it is, enjoy, don’t spend it all in one place.

Obama: People should see tax cut help by April 1

It took only weeks for the notoriously slow Congress to pass the $787 billion economic stimulus package. President Barack Obama signed it into law less than one month into his presidency.

So when should most people hope to start seeing the benefits of tax cuts in it?

By April 1, according to the president.

“Never before in our history has a tax cut taken effect faster or gone to so many hardworking Americans,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address.

The president said his signature two-year “Making Work Pay” tax break will affect 95 percent of working families, and, in six weeks’ time, a typical family will start taking home at least $65 more every month.

Taxpayers won’t get a separate check mailed to them like many did with last year’s one-time payment designed by the Bush administration to help boost the economy.

Instead, Obama’s credit — up to $400 credit for individuals and up to $800 credit for married couples — is to be doled out through the rest of the year through paychecks. Most workers are to see about a $13 per week increase in their take-home pay. In 2010, the credit would be about $7.70 a week, if it is spread over the entire year.

Oh, and if you’re disabled or on Social Security, you get a whopping one time payment of $250. Better than a broken stick in the eye, right?

Hey America, Obama promised you that 95% of Americans would get tax relief, you fell for it, you [expletive deleted] up and voted for him, and this is how he kept his word. He never promised you a rose garden. Now sit back and relax while he finishes completely destroying the U.S. economy.

Obama to Unveil an Ambitious Budget Plan

President Obama is putting the finishing touches on an ambitious first budget that seeks to cut the federal deficit in half over the next four years, primarily by raising taxes on business and the wealthy and by slashing spending on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, administration officials said.

Again, read carefully, that’s “cut the federal deficit in half over the next four years, primarily by raising taxes on business and the wealthy“.
