I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

NAACP chief makes switch to GOP

Found this in the Orlando Sentinel:

As of this week, Derrick Wallace, head of Orange County's NAACP, has switched parties -- to become a Republican.

"I've thought about this for two years," Wallace said Tuesday afternoon, just a few hours after returning from the elections office. "This is not a decision I made yesterday."

This had to be a difficult decision for Mr. Wallace. The treatment of Lt. Gov. Steele in Maryland can't be encouraging. His move makes perfect sense.

"It's purely a business decision. Ninety percent of those I do business with are Republicans," he said. "Opportunities that have come to my firm have been brought by Republicans."
Wallace elaborated that his "business" line of thought also referred to the NAACP. Behind many of the power desks in this town sit Republicans. And he said he wants his organization to be part of that structure. Just as importantly, he said, he didn't want people to immediately brand -- or dismiss -- NAACP concerns as synonymous with those of liberal Democrats. "I want this branch to be respected," he said.

Many more black people will come across the isle in spite of the oreo cookies and other insults thrown at them by their liberal, and former, friends. The Democratic Party has taken the minority vote for granted of way too long for anyone to ignore for much more time. The example of Louisiana legislators as reported in THE WASHINGTON TIMES:

A Senate panel this week passed a bill, introduced by state Sen. Charles Jones of upstate Monroe, a Democrat, that would loosen identification requirements because, Mr. Jones said, "an unprecedented number of persons have been temporarily displaced from their parishes of residence for an indefinite period."

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, have charged that relocating refugees across the country was "racist" and designed to move black people, who overwhelmingly vote Democratic, out of Louisiana.

They assume that the party will get their vote and will do anything to make sure they vote. After the election one is hard pressed to see any advantage gained for minorities when Democrats are in power. The fear in this case seems to be that the displaced population will find living elsewhere will be better than the state they left. How will the Des keep their cushy jobs if their "people" aren't there to be shuffled off to vote.
