    Re: Dr. Carson: Obamacare The Worst Thing That Has Happened Since Slavery

    The suggestion that the ACA is as bad as slavery is a carelessly hidden insult to people who oppose slavery. While at the same time showing how the teabaggers are able to so easily make the comparison and draw a similiarity. In essence it's letting us all know that slavery was quite acceptable to them. And it's also showing us that the baggers are still whining and crying about losing the civil war and they still haven't go over it. They're using Obama and their ugly racism toward him in an attempt to fight it all over again.

    Precisely, so when something is unconstitutional for 230+ years, then , suddenly it's not. I would question the integrity of that judge. In other words, any judge who violates the constitution should go down for felony perjury.

    What's your opinion on where those "disconnects" are? Very important to figure out what these are. Too many students are unprepared for college, and I don't mean just academically, although there is that. They are also too intellectually and emotionally immature to do the work.

    Remember "Why Can't Johnny Read?" That was a generation ago.

    Nope, sorry Joe, but I remember our conversation very well, and with the technology of being able to go back and read, it is really easy....On page 85 you started diverting into wild assertions that I never made, in fact it was like, out of a long post you were only focused on a singular aspect that was between myself, and another poster, that I had already corrected. But, for a whole page you wanted to beat that horse, and then when you realized you were starting to look foolish, you switched the tact on the next page to reparations, which, while still relevant as a side conversation, still not what Dr. Carson was talking about. Then on the next page, you took that argument about reparations, and used it to insert "education" into the conversation. It is all right here....http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1062449842 and that is the first mention of education at all into the conversation, made by YOU....

    Now, just to recap, you insert yourself into a conversation dispute between myself, and another that is already settled, then you shift the conversation off topic by adding another issue, then you take it a step further by changing the focus all together by arguing totally off topic about education for the next 8 pages.

    Now, I really don't any longer want to talk about you, or your off topic diversions Joe, so if there is something about the thread that you'd like to discuss honestly, then by all means post it, and I will absolutely read it and respond, but I am not going to get into trouble by entertaining your wild diversions.

    There is no evidence it was unconstitutional before. If an issue hasn't been up before doesn't mean it was unconstitutional before. You're making a logic error I think.
