    Well, you threw the word "is" in there, I didn't. So, that doesn't properly relate to what I said.
    And, to be clear, are you attempting to make my statement have a different meaning than that which was intended?

Dr. Carson's rhetoric only demonstrates anew the reality that superior performance in one field does not necessarily equate to superior performance in another field. He is a talented and successful neurosurgeon. One can't say the same with respect to his role in the political arena.
    and see, I look at it as it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see that forcing someone to labor against their will is slavery. This is different from taxation because you are being forced against your will to provide another "citizen" (thank you Citizens United) with a portion of your earnings. If you are providing a portion of your earnings unwillingly than you are providing your labor unwillingly. Forced into labor against your will for another isn't slavery?

    Well, he wouldn't want to be called a know nothing, partisan hack, now would he?

    Typical leftist response. Standards apply to someone else, never to them. By your standards, you should have never commented about Dr Carson.

    Well, you are usually wrong, so that would stand to reason... sure not me that is ignoring all the reams of evidence that the guy he is defending is a racist.

    Maybe it would be better if I ask which flavor of kool-aide you prefer, if the word color is too closely associated with race or something...

    Your hypocrisy is well noted. Probably won't take long for it to show up again.

    What is your basis for determining that I hold such double standards?

    Not true. I have no reason to suspect that Dr. Carlson's neurosurgery qualification are in suspicion. However, I haven't yet heard any reason to hold other thoughts of his in high regard. Neither what he's said (which seems to disregard all the deaths of the influenza epidemic, WWI, WWII, Viet Name, the Cold War, Mao's Revolution, and of course all the massacres by every dictator since then) nor any studies, publications or degrees of any kind on the topic of history.

    You need to be a little more discerning.

    Whatever hypocrisy you've "noted" is based only on a strawman and on no position I've held.
