We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I have known more then a few small business people who keep two sets of books. One for the IRS and one that is accurate but secret. The NAACP does something similar in that they have a "platform" for the general public and they have a secret one. After all they couldn't actually say or write some of the things they believe in and are lobbying for without suprising and even angering a large percentage of the population. So while you may disagree with their public platform and even laugh that they could imply that their main policy agenda is to get stuff from the government. But in fact their unwritten agenda is no laughing matter.
The Congressional Black Caucus was at the center of the mortgage buble, providing cover for the depredations of ACORN and the like, while demonizing the foundation of finance via leading the Alinsky tactics against bank execs.
"I would think the NAACP should be embarassed about this statement . . . "
There, fixed it for you.
Unfortunately the statement as quoted in the linked article is exactly the type of drivel that I have come to expect from the NAACP. They are all about enforcing a serf mentality among blacks and stamping out any semblance of non-comformist talk. See, for example, Bill Cosby.
