It looks like video footage from FIVE different ACORN offices of employees offering advise on how to get a loan to set up a brothel, or ship underage girls into the country to be prostitutes was too much. (I suppose four examples was one thing, but five...)
Via the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) – The House has voted to deny all federal funding for ACORN, the community organizing group that has been caught up in several scandals.The House action came several days after the Senate took a similar vote to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN.
Odds that the ban is total by the time it reaches Obama's desk?
After he spoke up during Obama's speech last night and said what everyone was yelling at their television screens, my own Congressman from here in SC is being targeted by the liberals, as you can imagine.
They're doing their best to get all the leftie "nutroots" crowd around the country to go to his likely 2010 Democrat opponent's website and give him money. So far, they claim they've raised over $100,000, but who knows.
What we do know is that there are a lot of conservatives around the country who feel just as "emotional" about the fact that Obamacare will indeed provide health care for illegal aliens as Joe did during Obama's speech. And we've got money too.
Solution. Click here and contribute to Joe Wilson's campaign. Today.
Then pass a note on to others and encourage them to do the same thing.

Joe's a good conservative. And he deserves our support.
The thing that really gets me about this is the mock ingignation of the folks on the left over this. These being the same people who cheered on as dozens and dozens of Democrats booed Bush during State of the Union speeches. read more »
...now, for something completely different
The folks over at Human Events took it on themselves to host a "Solutions Day" for conservative policy ideas - which offers something completely different from what we've been hearing out of DC lately - and today's the day.
From their lead article...
But there are better ideas than Obamacare, budget-busting government growth and the economy-killing “cap and trade” global warming tax. Unsurprisingly, they are ideas that conservatives have been proposing all year and on which the national media has imposed an electronic blockade. The hackneyed calumny “Republicans have no alternative” has been applied to everything from the faux-stimulus to Obama’s bloated budget to health care. Enough.
Today, HUMAN EVENTS is devoting itself to reporting and commenting on those ideas. We’ve rounded up many of the conservative leaders in congress to explain -- at one time and in one place -- the keys to economic recovery, health care and energy independence. And here -- in brief -- are the top five of those ideas. Fortunately for the nation, there are many more.
Here's a roundup of some of the interesting articles they're featuring...
Health Care: The Conservative Alternative in the House: (Rep. Tom Price)
Our solution is built upon the principle that when individuals are given control and ownership, we will achieve full access to coverage and see the entire system move in a positive, patient-centered direction. ...
That is correct, we are now the terrorists; that is according to the far left African-American wing of the Democratic Party.
I am, of course, referring to this absolutely asinine rant here. I would quote that bunch of nonsensical prattle on this blog and respond to it directly; but I am afraid that my emotions would get the best of me and I would say something that I might regret later. Leave it to the idiotic Socialist Liberal Democrats, to turn a fact finding mission, about an admitted Communist, who said everything and I do mean everything; under the damn sun about white people into a "White vs Black" witch hunt; starring of course; Glenn Beck.
The truth is folks, this had nothing to do with "White vs Black" and everything to do with Right vs Wrong. In fact, here is Glenn Back's Statement about Van Jones's ouster:
The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.
