    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.



    And that is exactly the course you liberals are going down that very path with your top down, centralized mindset...



    Well, then maybe you're not cut out to go up against people that think differently than you...Just sayin'



    You don't have to do that, unless you just can't handle it....



    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?



    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.



    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.
    20? I thought you were 20? I'm 64 and also have Dr. in front of my name, but in sociology with a specialty in social inequality, which actually makes me more qualified than Carson (I'll defer to him on neurosurgery), and probably you, doesn't it, since you seem to place a great deal of value on "Dr." There are many, many people with whom I disagree who don't turn my stomach (including on Fox) ... but people who trivialize slavery and Jim Crow do. You and the doctor are indeed free to say what you want, and as much as Carson's speech sickens me, the last thing I want him to do is to stop saying the things he says ... the more people on the right say these things, the better it is for those on the left ... Limbaugh calling that young woman a slut helped, Akins' comments about rape helped, etc. ... when those of you on the right make statements like this, it turns my stomach since so much of what you say is tinged with hate, but instead of trying to shut you up, I want you to climb to the highest mountain and say things like, "ACA, a law that can be repealed, is as bad as slavery, worse than thousands of lynchings." Say it loud, say it often, with my blessings.

    It seems your stomach is easily turned, Mikeafone. which must have been difficult for you in the rough and tumble world of sociology (with a specialty in social inequality).

    Given your degree and related experience, what is it about Left Wing politics that attracts you and why do you feel these policies would make the Unites States a better place to live?

    Well, that's very interesting Doc. No, I am a long way from my 20's...I am 51. Tell me, what exactly is entailed in obtaining a "specialty in social inequality"?

    Ah, I see, 'social stratification'.... Dividing people into classes politically, as well as socially...hmmm...have fun with that..

    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.
    The only buffoon is Dr. Ben Carson, a man who may have brains in his hands and it very capable in that work but when it comes to his own brain and what comes out of it he proves that he is at times makes moronic comments.

    I also stated things from American History that are much worse than Obamacare is and there are loads and loads more things. The great depression is also something that was much worse than Obamacare.

    I am sorry, but becoming president is a much bigger genuine accomplishment then becoming a brain surgeon is. Dr. Ben Carson has a talent for his work and is respectable in that way and I admire him for his work but that is not more diminish the accomplishments of Barack Obama.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Do you really need a list of the extremely stupid things Barrack Obama has said before and since he became President? Are you unaware of them?

    What as BHO accomplished in any posts he has been named to? There were no accomplishments prior to the Presidency and certainly none after, despite spending trillions of dollars. Just a trail of broken promises and unparalleled corruption.

    and you were so excited -- giddy actually -- about the "Dr." in front of Carson's name ...you're also fickle .. oh well ... J, you take care, and take comfort in knowing that you are never too old to learn new new things, but you have to remain open to new ideas, new ways of thinking ... you need to think more critically ... you have to learn to scratch the surface, things often aren't what they appear to be ... it's one of the many lessons of sociology ... and clearly you googled "social inequality" before you responded, and it seems you came up with social stratification, and that's O.K., but they're not exactly the same thing son, but I think the lesson will be lost on you ...

    Not at all, I respect what it takes to get a doctorate, as much as I do anything else in higher education...But please DR. don't be so quick to place yourself on some pedestal thinking you are better than others because your an educated man....The rest of your post seems to be little more than a thin insult, and therefore not worth addressing. I am however disappointed that you refuse to then give me an explanation of what your specialty is exactly then if I have it wrong.... And why that should make your opinion of any more value than mine.

    So you feel BHO's accomplishment was becoming President, not anything he has done as President?
