It appears to me that the influx of issues worthy of column dedication, happen at such an accelerated rate, that it might be good to step back once and awhile an update my readers as to any progress or changes that might have occurred since first publishing my columns. With that in mind, here we go!

ACORN:  Since the recent video driven flurry of activities regarding ACORN funding and possible future investigations, a few key items have happened. Congress has voted on legislation to de-fund ACORN, yet the President has not signed off on it yet. Makes sense when you consider the President only last week reported that he was not aware of ACORN receiving such funding. ( Oh Please! The degree to which they see us all as idiots is insulting.)

In my recent column concerning ACORN and their activities, I charged our elected Officials both Nationally and Statewide to find some backbones and aggresively combat the corruuptive organization. This article was composed on Friday Sept. 11th, as the story based on hidden camera footage were first coming to light.

While my article did not officially release into print until Thursday the 17th, I feel the need to reply to the actions taken by some of those whom I addressed and who did re-act to this situation.

During the Presidential Campaign and even up to his inaugural address, President Obama had repeated his claim to “Change”. The desire he professed for a new way of doing business in Washington, free from the constant partisanship and gridlock that has stalled Congress for decades, enhanced even further by what he described would be “the Most Transparent Administration in History”.

On Sept. 09, 2009 national news broadcasts played hidden camera footage of an encounter within Baltimore and Washington D.C. offices of ACORN. The community organization that has found itself involved in countless charges and convictions relating to voter registration fraud in many states.

ACORN, who’s history of thug tactics and intimidation applied to lending institutions and others, is closely affiliated with through his training and legal representation efforts for the group with now President Barack Obama, who during his 2008 campaign funded ACORN’s activities to the tune of over 800 thousand dollars, with some reported 8 Billion dollars heading their way via the stimulus bill. ( Can you say what the? )

As August came to a close, Congressman Charlie Melancon (D), from the 3rd District announced that he would be challenging Sen David Vitter for his seat in the upcoming election of 2010. Once again illustrating the major problem with our elected officials and their unending quests for power.

While I am not a proponent of another term for Sen. Vitter, ( I believe in a 2010/2012 cleansing ), Rep. Melancon’s decision elicits many questions within me, that need answering.

One thing most Americans can usually agree upon is that when discussing Washington and our elected Government officials, as they pontificate and legislate from seemingly pious positions, is that there is far too much Bull coming out of our Congress and the White House.

Even President Obama cited this while on his recent “unscripted” town hall forums on health care reform in Montana and Colorado. ( Insert tongue in cheek here.) But the point was on target and easily relatable to most.
