I saw Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on the news claiming that "they" are trying to take your votes away in reference to the NO folks that are still displaced. They want polling places set-up where they people currently reside. Why can't they just vote absentee? What's with the special treatment.

Should the folks that have been displaced from NO be allowed to vote in the NO elections at polling places where they currently reside?

No. If they're not here and can't figure out how to vote absentee they shouldn't be given special treatment.

That could be literally anywhere. If the refugess want to declare themselves local residents, then they can use local polling places. If they want to remain NOLA residents, there is an absentee process in place.

Jesse and Al want to make the process more open to fraud so that "their people" can keep control of the vote in New Orleans.

A little research shows that in the last Louisiana governor's race, the black Democatic voter base swung New Orleans to the Democratic candidate Kathleen Blanco. New Orleans swung the state in her favor... 51% Dem - 49% Republican. The Republican candidate was a young fellow, Bobby Jindal, a second generation American of Indian (as in the Asian subcontinent) descent. Jindal is a brilliant young, energetic fellow that certainly would have handled the post-Katrina fiasco much better.

I voted absentee once from Ireland. Should be easy to do from Houston. What the "refugee pimps" really want is the ability of their serfs to vote in Texas and New Orleans.

Yep.. the demographics of New Orleans has changes bigtime.

The "black" control over city and parish goverment has come to a screeching halt and Rev. Al and J.J. are pissed.

You should see some of the stunts the black lawmakers are trying to pull here in Baton Rouge.

New Orleans WAS broke.. They are not going to rebuild the slums for them to move back to.

Hopefully now it can be fixed.

I do feel bad for the citys that have to deal with the trash that came out of New Orleans. We have our fair share of it here. The "N.O." people that live around me are trying to pull stunts here that they got away with in N.O. but the citizens and law enforcement are having non of it.

I have lived in this part of town for 5yrs and its always been quiet. NOW, its hoopties with 36" sub woofers rollin' around at 3am. Also, we have had 4 shootings within 1/2 mile of here in since the storm.

And yes, I'm armed..

The correct term is "refugee"

Because the refugees are too stupid to know who to vote for and how to vote unless driven to the poll, paid, and given a ballot to follow. These are some dumb stupid people. Believe me, I lived there for a while.
