ACORN Taking What The Obama Campaign Promised Them

" Police in Baltimore today made what is believed to be the first arrest in a civil disobedience program aimed at supporting homeowners who refuse to vacate their foreclosed homes.

An activist with ACORN — the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now — faces criminal charges after breaking into a home in southeast Baltimore on Thursday to protest the foreclosure crisis sweeping the country.

"This is our house now," ACORN member Louis Beverly reportedly said after cutting a lock with bolt cutters at the home."

Their house. Their country. Their President. Their rules, not the rule of law.
Anyone else has this strange feeling America is quickly becoming a third-world Banana Republic where a gang of thugs rules by intimidation and force?

In the UK in the 1980's there was a wave of this stuff, with homeless people taking over homes when people went on vaction. The squatters usually took months to evict, the judical system being so caring of the poor dears.

If ACORN really gets away with this stuff, then look for this other bright idea to crop up.
