The sun is shinning, the meadow larks are calling, the ACLU closes it’s doors in N.D., all is right with the world. According to the Bismarck Tribune
FARGO (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union has closed its North Dakota office.
The organization attributes the closure of the Fargo facility to the poor national economy and to losses major contributors suffered in the Bernard Madoff scandal. The New York financier is serving a 150-year prison term for a giant Ponzi scheme.
State ACLU officials say a board of directors will remain in place in North Dakota and continue the work of former director Jennifer Ring, who lost her job when the office was shuttered.
People seeking to reach the organization now have to call the ACLU’s Minneapolis office, which has dedicated a phone line and a part-time staff member to North Dakota issues.
The ACLU is a national organization that advocates and defends rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution.
Oh, No! What of the now unemployed former N.D. Democrat state legislator Jennifer Ring? My money is on her as the next Party Chairwomen of the North Dakota Democrat Party after David Strauss splits. In fact I would expect a ringing endorsement from the Obama administration on that idea (Obama has 82% ACLU Congressional Score Card rating). Keep your eyes peeled on this one.
The last line of the quote, from the Tribune article, likely from an AP author as the article is unattributed, is maybe, a little bit of a stretch. According to the website of Stop the ACLU there are ten reasons for stopping the organization “that advocates and defends rights and liberties”:
#1. The ACLU fufills its agenda using my tax money.
#2. The ACLU supports child porn distribution and child molesters like NAMBLA.
#3. The ACLU Defend the enemies of America.
#4. The ACLU Opposes National Security.
#5. The ACLU is anti-Christian.
#6. The ACLU advocate open borders.
#7. The ACLU are pro-death. Not only is the ACLU Pro-abortion, it’s the ACLU’s top priority.
#8. Their outright hatred of the Boyscouts.
#9. The ACLU does not believe in the Second Amendment.
#10. The ACLU was founded by Communist.
It just goes to show, sometimes if you look hard enough, good things result when very bad things happen. At least, perhaps, Bernie can look back for many years on what little good he did (at least for N.D). On the other hand…...if Jennifer Ring moves to Bismarck to run the N.D. Democrat party…...
