Weekend Reading: ACORN is Toast Edition

by Darwin on September 19, 2009

acorn-broken-pictureAnother week of great reads. These are entries from blogs I frequent, and I hope you will too (just come back!). I’ve also included various finance/investing carnivals that published my material this week as well as my posts within my network since the last weekly links.

This week’s edition coincides with both the Congress and the House voting in bi-partisan fashion to revoke federal funds for the now infamous ACORN. It’s amazing what a little undercover camera work will do to get politicians to run for the exits when they previously supported the group that was doing what we all knew, but now they can no longer claim they don’t know what we know.  I know…  Anyway, people don’t come here for politics, so I won’t opine in any great detail – other than to say it was big news this week and it’s the only thing I can think of lately that both sides of the aisle generally agreed on.
