    Why didn't Martin Bashir say the same thing about Dr. Carson that he did about Palin for bringing up the Word slavery?

    American civil war
    Second world war (may not have happened in the US but it cost hundreds of thousands of American lives)
    9/11
    Vietnam war

    all of the above are much much much much much worse than Obamacare can be or ever will be.

    Over arching centralized government control over one of the most important aspects to life, being Health Care? Absolutely.

    More selective? eh, maybe I don't know you, nor you me. But, what I do know is that when a government can control something like your health care decisions, then it can control you...Having other people control me is a definition of slavery, so in that respect, yes Dr. Carson is spot on.

    But that isn't the only avenue that demo's have enslaved people with, the welfare state is another.

    even accepting your false characterization of what ACA is, that's worse than some 4000 lynchings of black folks, segregation which meant inferior education, pay, housing, health care, basic human respect and dignity, etc.? You're starting to turn my stomach, so I'm not going to keep this up much longer ... get in your last few comments and I'll move on ... but thanks for the reminder that we still have a few young Bull Connors among us ... luckily you're in the minority among young people ... recommendation: There is a series on the Civil Rights Movement called "Eyes on the Prize" ... check it out, learn something ... and Carson was a beneficiary of that movement, so for him to trivialize Jim Crow in this way is especially repugnant ...

    I am going to break this up a little because you need to know exactly what it is that you said which was not only liberal pap, but pure Bull ****. I falsely characterized nothing. For God's sake, wake up man.....

    that's worse than some 4000 lynchings of black folks,
    And as gruesome and repugnant as that time was, rational people in the future will look back on this time and wonder how we let 400K, 4 million, 40 million be digitally lynched by an advisory board that denied treatment of our grand parents because the young generation of today doesn't respect their lives. Seems like the same mindset to me.

    segregation which meant inferior education, pay, housing, health care, basic human respect and dignity, etc.?
    And that is exactly the course you liberals are going down that very path with your top down, centralized mindset...

    You're starting to turn my stomach, so I'm not going to keep this up much longer ...
    Well, then maybe you're not cut out to go up against people that think differently than you...Just sayin'

    get in your last few comments and I'll move on ...
    You don't have to do that, unless you just can't handle it....

    but thanks for the reminder that we still have a few young Bull Connors among us ...
    And there it is....Don't you progressive libs ever worry that you so overuse the 'racist' charge, that you take all the power out of it?

    luckily you're in the minority among young people ...
    I'm not a young guy anymore...When I was, I was probably a little closer to your own mindset, but with age comes wisdom, the wisdom of living life, and seeing the damage that policies have wrought over time....But you'll get there too one day.

    recommendation: There is a series on the Civil Rights Movement called "Eyes on the Prize" ... check it out, learn something ... and Carson was a beneficiary of that movement, so for him to trivialize Jim Crow in this way is especially repugnant ...
    Well, thanks for the suggestion, and maybe if I have time I'll look it up, but to tell me to "learn something" is especially insulting coming from a 20 something still looking for his own path in life, so you should maybe refrain from telling people you don't know, smugly to "learn something", it makes you look small. As for Dr. Carson, (maybe you forgot the Dr. before his name) he wasn't trivializing Jim Crow, or anything like it. In fact he was putting his finger on exactly what policies that seek to control peoples lives through central control do to the psyche of free men. You don't like it? Too bad. As far as I know we still have free speech in this country.

    Now, as for you making excuses, and running away, you can do that if you wish, or you can man up, and debate....Either way it matters not....Have a good one.

    Dr. Carson specifically said 'in America', not in the history of the world. If that was the case then of course the break-up of the Beatles would be right up there as well.

    Did you support Barrack Obama, a street hustler who received the benefit of affirmative action but who never really accomplished anything in his life apart from getting elected and, as we all know by now, has made things a great deal worse for the United States and the world as well?

    Dr. Ben Carson, in sharp contrast, is a man of genuine accomplishments and is world famous for them. BHO, on the other hand, has become an international buffoon.
