    Yeah, just how in the world ever would the actual prosecutor actually prosecuting the case know anything, ANYTHING AT ALL, about the case, eh?

    Do you know how absolutely stupid that position sounds to the rest of us? To heck with how it sounds, that position is just a flat out completely void of one shred of sense.

    Does go towards, just throw this one in the hugh pile with all the others, proving that you folks on that side are blinded and do not want to see... that's it...so LIED TO and want to be LIED TO.

    Got it.

    Well, unless you are an expert in bull****. In that case, you'd have me.
    Nice try, but being a brain surgeon isn't a free ticket to expertise in every other department. Listening to his hyperbole on healthcare with the tag line "He's a brain surgeon!" sounds a little too similar to those anti-flu vitamin C tablets sold in supermarkets that have the words "invented by a school teacher!" written on the box. It sounds kind of credible for a second until you realize it means nothing.

    You'd trust a Community Organizer" though, huh?

    How does his biography compare with Obama's? Or Hillary's for that matter. Ben Carson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Left will start demonizing everyone just in case one of them might be a Presidential candidates. That's why you get stuck with a jackass like Barrack Obama.

    So Dr. Carson must have stayed at a Holiday Inn because now you think he is an authority on EVERYTHING.

    Your post is juvenile and not related to anything said. Try not to be a leftist for 24 hours and it will be the best day of your life.

    Oh I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you with your puckering up to Dr. Carson's ass. Care to comment to what I said instead of mumble?

    Try not being a wannabe extremist right wing tea party wannabe for 24 hours and you might find out you don't have to be a bigoted, narrow minded, hateful, spiteful, confused... (word I can't say).

A lot of slaves knew better and were anything but content to have his master provide and make decisions for him. They did not accept being forced to accept those terms and conditions and ran off or rebelled. In either case, the slave was oppressed and he was prevented from making decisions in his own best interest unless he freed himself from the shackles of forced behavior.

    Along comes Obamadon'tcare. The government is not forced to mandate the terms and conditions of a persons health care but it did and now it's subjects are forced to accept them. Does that ring a bell? It should. But the very second someone objects to an increasingly all powerful government that forces it's subjects by mandates they are called "crazy", "stupid", "lunatics" and such by those in favor of people being forced to comply with it's mandates.

    Dr. Carson hit the nail on the head with his remarks.
    I can accept your analogy from the perspective of someone who is held in bondage wanting to break free -vs- those who just settle for forced servitude. But again, this is why I'd much rather have had the CLASS Act over what we have now.

    But I'd never suggest that a slave "knew better". Fear and ignorance ruled them, not knowledge. Thus, the risks for freedom for some was too great just as was the odds of gaining said freedom. Therefore, "staying put" was preferable to any alternative including death.

    One case does not a fanasty real. You have to show large numbers. You can't. Neither can he.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
