Occupy Run by ACORN?

The Bible says there's nothing new under the sun. And the

Occupy Wall Street
movement is turning out to be long-time left-wing activists under a new title.

The New York Post has outed the Occupy movement as being led by a renamed ACORN group. Remember ACORN, disgraced for its role in voter registration fraud, plus mismanagement of millions of dollars?

And political insider Elizabeth Warren—the godmother of Washington's attack on big banks—claims she laid the intellectual groundwork for the Occupy movement. That surprises people who don't see much intellect there!

Now President Obama is throwing the movement a bone—saying he will change college loans to put a heavier burden on taxpayers and less on the students. Remember, the Occupy movement wants free college and for their school loans to be forgiven. They claim they deserve the money, because they say they're not greedy.
