Depravity in Baltimore.

This morning I learned on Michelle Malkin's site, that the district attorney (DA) of the city of Baltimore is planning to prosecute two reporters who exposed ACORN employees. These employees were caught using tax funds to promote tax fraud and help establish a child prostitution ring within the community. How is that for a government funded community service organization?

During my recent reading about Ted Kennedy, I realized that morals and integrity have very little place in politics, especially among the Democratic party. He tried to make deals with the KGB and compromised American security, simply to hurt Reagan's chances of being elected. He managed to change the state constitution to prevent a Republican governor from being able to appoint a replacement for a senator. On his deathbed, he tried to convince state legislators to once again change the constitution, just so that a Democratic governor could now appoint his replacement. Rules seemed to have little meaning in his world - anything and everything just to get his way. He really personified the pigs from the book Animal Farm - that some were more equal than others. If rules meant nothing, then ideology and personal association meant everything.

If the Baltimore DA decided to prosecute these reporters for wiretap charges and tries exempt them from the protection normally afforded to whistle-blowers, the press, and people who actually do a beneficial public service such as good samaritans, then this DA is in fact defending and promoting government corruption. In this particular case, the DA would also defend child prostitution and the frequently associated human trafficking and slavery. This will not be a defence of laws which apply to all citizens, as no such prosecution was pursued when a bystander taped Rodney King being beaten by the highway police. What defense would a court offer for recording governor Blagovich and his wife, but prosecuting reporters for recording criminal activity at ACORN offices? This would be a clear political assault on all American citizens.

If we have no right to defend our community from such crimes as child prostitution and child slavery, then this government cannot be reasoned with. The main reason that human beings gather into communities is so that we can protect one another. Our main goal in life is to raise our children. Without children, human kind has no future. If the government has become so deranged in their priorities so to deny protection for the children of our community, then only course left shall be a bloody violent revolt. This time in human history may yet become Biblical.

Let's not dismiss the positive gains achieved in Baltimore during the past few years.
Viewing this Acorn expose video one is struck how much progress had been made compared with the stark reality depicted in the award winning HBO drama 'The Wire'.
Clearly, much more needs to be done, but it's edifying that steps are made in the right direction.

It's going to get interesting. The Philadelphia Office made a big deal out of claiming they had shown the pimp and prostitute the door - and after they had given full voice to their claims, the other shoe dropped...

The ACORN pimp and prostitute videos give people a small window into the corruption that is ACORN.

It is so much more than this... scores of front groups, all founded by the same small group of people, the groups are used as tools in campaign strategies, using one to endorse the other, cross-pollinating in order to look bigger than they are.

The asleep at the wheel press quotes so and so from this and that organization without checking to find that that org popped up the day before, and is created entirely out of hole cloth. But given a name and title the press quotes them and gives them legitimacy. Those articles are then used to bolster the credentials of the phony org as a bona fide organization. With no one paying attention, within a few weeks, the lines of reality are blurred.
