ACORN acting out - Obama No Comment

by Mac McMullen / October 12, 2008 8:59 AM PDT

The Republican National Committee said it will spend $2 million to beef up security at campaign offices around the country in response to recent vandalism. The move comes as supporters of both presidential candidates have ratcheted up the rhetoric.

RNC Chairman Robert M. "Mike" Duncan said in a statement over the weekend that "violent intimidation tactics" have been adopted by some supporters of Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama. Mr. Duncan cited vandalism at a McCain-Palin campaign office in Missouri and harassment of campaign workers by members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as Acorn, who staged a rally outside a McCain-Palin campaign office in Pennsylvania.

The Obama campaign declined to comment on the issue.

I think these folks think their cause is righteous.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
