    Try real hard to educate yourself on the definition of "slave". It's obvious you lack an understanding of the word.

    1) He does not appear to have any degrees that makes his opinion in higher regard than anyone else's.
    2) This is demonstrated by his facile and ignorant views.

    As neither Dr. Carson nor I hold any history degrees we seem to be more or less evenly matched in the academic area, and I appear to be at least marginally more qualified in that I can name multiple tragedies since slavery that far outweigh any negative outcomes of ACA.

    Oh please, your side uses this word as a blunt tool all the time with little to NO evidence. We are not talking about talking about race, we are not talking about acknowledging feelings, we are talking about someone who has a very distinct dislike of a certain race, instantly jumps to conclusions in the cases noted if that race is involved... and goes the exact other way if an African American is involved.

    That is not right, not in this day and age, and is not a person that should have ever been given the responsibility of representing this country and ALL OF ITS PEOPLE to the rest of the world.

    Its embarrassing.

    Yes, there are people of every stripe who use poor reasoning skills. I'm not sure that excuses you for using them.

    And no where has President Obama shown a dislike for any particular race. In fact, you and some in this thread are doing far more leaping to wild conclusions than the President ever has. And yes, your leaping is embarrassing, so stop it for your own sake.

    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.

    Man, you talk about embarrassing... not one shred of real evidence in defense, proof isn't proof just 'cause you said its so...wow...now, my dad might've gotten away with that when I was a kid, 'cause, you know, he was kinda my boss and all...

    But you? You spouting such feebly stupid positions fully expecting that rational people accept that? I mean, knowing you have no shame for such silliness, I am embarrassed for you.

    Would suggest putting some time in on honing your reasoning skills, if you can find such, even more time on supporting your views with evidence. If you started doing that you might just find yourself changing stances as you grasp at wisps of nothing, like you did in this case, in your efforts to defend silliness.

    Just saying...

    Slavery is the new Holocaust for Conservatives. Everything is slavery. Water cooler is broken? Slavery. Got diarrhea? Slavery. Not enough coins for the laundromat? Slavery.

    And talk about dodging the question! Most of this thread is people on the left attacking the good doctor rather than debating his thoughts on Obamacare. It is pretty comical, trying to convince us how he is "not qualified" to argue against Obamacare or talk about slavery. Like it is a really high bar, unattainable by Dr. Carson.

    But, non brain surgeons like Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are qualified to dump this crap on us. "You have to pass it to find out what's in it!" Could be to dumbest thing ever said by a short lived Speaker of the House. God, do you liberals ever listen to yourselves???

    Sounds like liberals crying for more welfare programs to me.

    Broken water cooler? Government.
    Got diarrhea? Government.
    Not enough coins for the laundromat? Government.
