    Re: Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech at prayer breakfast

    Somewhat off-topic, but if anyone wants to know more about Mr. Carson, read his autobiography Gifted Hands. It's amazing and Mr. Carson tells the truth, he doesn't try to make himself look like some goody-two shoes.

    I guess to you all blacks look alike; this thread is about Dr. Carson, not Herman Cain.

    Were you the first to mention race as an issue on this thread or were there others?

    Holy crap! A news anchor asked a question and a democrat said that it was really appropriate!

    Why that's *exactly* like a stoning !!

    What does one have to do with another? Would you care about his beliefs on evolution if you needed brain surgery?

    Attacking the person's character rather then his argument is just cheap.

    Obama claims to be a Christian also but perhaps the leftists realize he's just kidding.

    Re: Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech at prayer breakfast

    I'm just glad someone with a back story similar to mine is getting positive attention on the national level. I've always been irritated beyond what you can believe by people making excuses for their lack of effort. Dr. Carson and I both came from single mothers who were poor but hard working. Excellent work ethic was taught by example to us, along with determination, leading from poverty to upper-middle class by means of academic efforts.

    My grandfather was a strict Catholic, so he was shamed when my mother got pregnant with me her senior year of high school. I was due just two months after her graduation. He gave my mother the choice between putting me up for adoption or moving out of the house. She chose the latter and moved to the Baltimore area, where I spent my early childhood. She made the mistake of marrying a loser early on, but she realized this soon after my brother was born. Determined to take care of her sons on her own, and get away from her abusive husband, she divorced and enlisted in the Navy. Witnessing the sacrifices she made to give us the best she could, my brother and I were instilled with a strong work ethic. We both went on to 6 years college off of loans, majoring in multiple areas. I had my employer chosen back in high school, specifically one which would pay for my graduate education as I worked so that I could earn my math PhD and teach at university level.

    It's funny how Dr. Carson became much more well known recently by his speech in front of Obama, because I'm in the process of writing a book about the lack of logic and ethics in society. I call out the people who expect handouts for being poor, rather than working hard to make sure their kids have a better life than they had. I explain how the tax system shouldn't penalize success, the justice system should make the risk greatly outweigh the rewards with respect to crime, and even why the voting system should be a weighted sum rather than all votes being counted equally. I agree with Dr. Carson that I wish there was a "logic party", but at least the Republicans are significantly closer than the Democrats to being such.

    What's sad is that such basic, plain, "duh" logic is now considered way out there in the minds of the great unwashed.
