Obama Admin Gives ACORN 1 Mill to Fight Fires


Despite the uproar over the pimp-friendly organization promoting teen prostitution, the Obama Administration gifted the pro-Obama community organization with $1 million grant earlier this month to fight fires(?)
Senator David Vitter (R-LA) reported this at Big Government:

Earlier this month and despite the public scrutiny over the voter fraud and felony criminal activity associated with ACORN, the Department of Homeland Security went ahead and granted $997,402 to ACORN under the FY 2008 Fire Prevention and Safety Program.

To most people, the timing and the amount of the grant would seem off base, but when you take into account the fact that DHS awarded ACORN–an organization with no clear expertise in fire safety and prevention–a fire prevention and safety grant, it’s just plain offensive.

With fire departments all over Louisiana – and the rest of the country – struggling to make ends meet and get the equipment and training they need to protect their local communities, the idea of a million dollar grant going to ACORN is unsettling, to say the least.

Fight fires? Wow, community organizers turned fire fighters--this is just disturbing, but let him do it. People are paying attention now.

I'd think the Firefighter's Union might have an opinion on this, is the SEIU setting-up a take-over?

LL said...

I can't imagine a situation where the US government would pay ACORN to empty an outhouse cistern.

Love your teen pimp picture!

WoFat said...

The lass in the photo is a beautiful child.

Bill, He will do what he will. And folks like us will shine the bright light of scrutiny on it.

DirtCrasher, I can't imagine that real fire fighters can feel OK with this allocation of funds. Just more graft and corruption leaving the true good guys doing without.

Opus #6 said...

LL, don't give them any ideas. That will be the next excuse to dole out stimulus funds.

Opus #6 said...

kyslp, the picture is great. And I gotta tell you, these kids are my heroes. The way I see it, the FBI wouldn't do it. The Justice Department wouldn't do it. The congress wouldn't do it. So these little kids went under cover and uncovered a rat's nest of corruption. Amazing and truly heroic.

Opus #6 said...

Wofat, she really is amazingly beautiful. I can't believe the ACORN folks thought she was a real prostitute.

I could believe ACORN starting fires. Not putting them out.

Opus #6 said...

LOL, Fuzzy's Dad! Too true!

INSANITY!

You know, I wish you'd show more pictures of Hannah Giles on your site. Because I personally think she's a symbol of freedom in this country, and all websites should have her picture there to remember the work she's done to keep our country free from, er, corruption. God Bless Hannah Giles...(and james o'keefe too)

If Glenn Beck finds out this, he may digg into it deeper?!

What an absolute insult to our intelligence.

Opus #6 said...

Redhead, totally! How did they think they would get away with this!

Opus #6 said...

Candle, she's a cutie pie, huh.

Amusing Bunni said...

Hi Opie, that is just plain NUTS! Fight fires, those crooks will probably START fires, to pretend they are doing something. Then they will roast all their nuts while the cities burn...either that or pee on them to put them out. Crazy!
PS, you were right, I luved Odie's Cinchilli Video, I also posted a new squirrel vid and it has cool links, enjoy.

The_Kid said...

These two kids are seriously cool.

Rock on.

Opus #6 said...

Rotti, I hope these people are stopped, along with their corrupt (SEIU) affiliates.

Opus #6 said...

Bunni, your squirrels are models of martial art perfection.

Opus #6 said...

Kid, they DO exude coolness, don't they.

Soloman said...

Oh.. I'd say they've got some fires to fight, alright.

That million is a drop in the bucket compared to what they're going to need, once discovery begins and the truth really comes to the surface.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

I'm unsettled.

Opus #6 said...

Sol, lol, legal fires.

Opus #6 said...

Odie, me too.
