    Huh.

    That's...interesting. Compartmentalized intelligence is one thing, but being a surgeon and not believing that, say, bacteria adapts to become resistant to antibiotics would seem problematic to me.

    I'd still take my car to a mechanic.

    So then you might take your car to Tyson. Just in case you never noticed, there's all kinds of auto parts stores that sell parts to mechanics of all shapes and sizes. Tyson just might be one of their customers.

    I'm relatively certain Kobie's point was that expertise in one area doesn't automatically grant expertise in others.

    Well, here's part of what he said: " that doesn't make him any more qualified to comment on legislation".

    That doesn't show why he is not qualified to comment on legislation. And it certainly doesn't show that legislators passing laws have any qualifications on any legislation, heath care or otherwise.

    I'm relatively certain Kobie's point was to try to discredit him just because Kobie doesn't like what he says.

    ...in response to the notion that being a surgeon automatically does.

    It's less about what qualifies him and more about what disqualifies him, and what specifically disqualifies him is his ignorant and facile statement that "Obamacare is the worst thing to happen since slavery."

    Let's go back to that Neil DeGrass/mechanic analogy: you bring your car to him because, after all, the dude is an astrophysicist and has an IQ of 600. But...whoops!...all the guy has studied up on is astrophysics and he leaves your car in worse shape than when you brought it to him. All you wanted was an oil change and yet somehow your car has ended up with the entire engine block removed piece by piece and he has no idea how to put it back together. If, after observing this, are you going to insist he's qualified to fix cars because he's an astrophysicist with an IQ of 600?

    In that case, Id say I screwed up by not telling the man what I wanted done to my car. Plus I'd find it hard to believe a man with a 600 IQ could manage to disassemble a car engine but couldn't figure out how to put it back together. Guys with way lower IQ's manage to figure it out all the time. And at this point I'll have to say that Neil DeGrass needs to find something else to talk about as he's clueless about how mechanics learn things.

    What? That Neil DeGrass doesn't know his a** from a hole in the ground about mechanics?

    That has nothing to do with Dr Carson.

    LOL yes it does. A full-on neurosurgeon disqualifies himself from talking about legislation and insurance by making a comment that's less informed than a junior highschooler, and an astrophysicist disqualifies himself by completely bullocksing the repair of a car.

    Same thing.

    Dude, you had the point. You had it! And you just...let it slip away.
