The NEW Acorn? - CAHO

As you all may know, ACORN is more or less dead. However, has the phoenix risen from the ashes? Somebody call Glenn Beck!

Over the last four days, yellow shirted volunteers, many thousands, formerly employed by ACORN, gathered together in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Convention Center to move forward with the new ACORN, called:

CAHO 
Community Advocacy and Homeownership Organization

What were they discussing in the convention? (CLICK HERE)
And in case the link goes dead, here is their press release:


NACA Press Conference for Save the Dream Tour: Las Vegas Convention Center on October 8, 1 p.m.

October 07, 2009

- Las Vegas is the next stop of the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America's (NACA) nationwide Save the Dream tour. It is coming to the Las Vegas Convention Center on Friday, October 9, through Monday, October 12, 2009. 

What: Press conference to launch the Las Vegas event
When: Thursday, October 8, 1 p.m.

Where: Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall 3 and 4
This is the third city in the Western U.S. leg of the NACA tour. Los Angeles, the first city on the

 Western U.S. tour, drew more than 50,000 homeowners looking for mortgage restructuring relief, and the second city, Phoenix, drew approximately 40,000 homeowners.
NACA provides a free effective solution for at-risk homeowners with unaffordable mortgages by permanently reducing the interest rate often to 4%, 3% and 2% and, if necessary, reducing the outstanding principal to what homeowners can afford. NACA can do this because it has secured legally

 binding agreements with most of the major lenders and servicers, which covers 90% of the at-risk homeowners.
'Our thousands of volunteers work with homeowners at the event to prepare a budget that verifies and documents what the homeowners can afford. We then present these documents onsite to our over 200 bank representatives for approval,' said Bruce Marks, CEO of NAC

A. 'Many attendees of the Save the Dream tour events come away with a lower monthly payment and sometimes a lower principal. As our tour generates more and more interest, the banks are more willing to cooperate with us which really helps these troubled homeowners.'
Over 230,000 participants have already participated in NACA's Save the Dream tour in Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Phoenix, providing same day

 solutions to thousands of homeowners, helping to avoid foreclosure, restructure mortgages, and reduce interest rates. Click here for media coverage from all the previous events.
The incredible success of NACA was also featured recently on national television. Click here to view ABC News Nightline feature on NACA's Save the Dream tour. The feature went on the frontlines with NACA CEO Bruce Marks, 'a man trying to restore the American Dream.' 
All of NACA's services are free. Homeowners drive and fly from long distances to attend these extraordinary Save the Dream events. The last stop on NACA's Western U.S. Save the Dream tour is

 the San Francisco Bay Area on October 16-20.
Anyone interested in attending the Save the Dream event Friday, 

October 9, through Monday, October 12, at the Las Vegas Convention Center should pre-register for an appointment at NACA.com (https://www.naca.com/members/keepInform.jsp?formType=campaign&campaignID=LV&campaignTitle=Las%20Vegas,%20

From what I can determine, CAHO is a spin-off from NACA, and if it's not the new ACORN, it sure LOOKS like the new ACORN.


The people attending the convention wore the yellow shirts of NACA, but the acronym was CAHO.


What's Wrong with Bill Clinton?

William Jefferson Clinton is the only Democratic president in the last forty years who has not received the Nobel Peace Prize. Even his vice president, Al Gore received the Nobel Peace Prize (for co-producing a movie on global warming, right before global cooling became a big concern). Bill is like the kid that didn't get picked for baseball and ended up watching through the fence.

How did he become the Democratic Party's biggest loser (in the opinion of the Nobel Committee)?

Did he fail the world in pursuit of peace or did he simply not lay down a large enough bribe?


  • He couldn't keep the snake caged?
  • Hillary screwed it up somehow?
  • He wasn't peaceful enough?
  • His books didn't catch on: "Giving-How Each of us can Change the World", My Life, My Life- The Presidential Years Vol. 2"

When you consider that Jimmy Carter, arguably the worst president in US History received the award and Barack Hussein Obama, who is poised to take the dunce cap from President Carter received the award, could it be that President Clinton was simply not lame enough as a US president? Or that his shrewish wife, the current US Secretary of State somehow offended Swedish sensibilities to the extent that he could no longer be considered for the honor of becoming a Nobel Laureate?
