Ben Carson says Poverty is a State of Mind?

People say dumb things, and Ben Carson says dumb things often. The other day he said poverty is a state of mind. So this means that with the right mind set people can pull themselves out of poverty. Sadly this is simply not true, Contrary to Carson’s point of view most people living in poverty would prefer not to be. There are millions of Americans working everyday for minimum wages and simply unable to get out of poverty. They are not driving luxury cars to the local grocery store picking up ribeye steaks and large costal shrimp. Carson grew up in poverty but over the years he has romanticized the story and his mother is the hero. Sure she might have been phenomenal but to say if everyone had a mother like his there would be no poverty is ridiculous. There are millions of encouraging, inspiring mothers living in poverty who might not ever get out of it but they are doing the best they can and they should be celebrated not accused of having the right mindset.

Newsflash Republicans: You Don’t Get Points for Acknowledging Racism

George Wallace was a racist. He stood in front of the University of Alabama in the face of integration he utter the infamous words” Segregation today, segregation tomorrow segregation forever. He said he meant it and the federal government used him as the welcome mat as black students started attending the school. There used to be consequences for his actions, but in 2016 consequences are non-existent. Donald Trump has said numerous racist things regarding the judge presiding over his fraud case. What have the Republicans done about it? They have acknowledged it but most of them still support him. There are no points for acknowledging. A racist should be vilified not celebrated, and he certainly should not be the GOP nominee,

Dr. Ben Carson to endorse Donald Trump…is the brain surgeon now brain dead?

Really Dr. Carson you are going to support Donald Trump? Trump the man that mocked you and called you pathological? Why would you want to support him. Isn’t Ted Cruz the more logical pairing? Carson could forgive Trump but not Cruz. So the noted brain surgeon is throwing his support behind the tough talking New Yorker? Can we say Surgeon General? Share your thoughts.

Have we become a nation of sore losers?

Last week I watched an episode of Bring It on Lifetime. It is a show highlighting cheer/dance competition. The competition is fierce and every episode features a competition and a 1st and 2nd place team is crowned. The other week a team won the 2nd place trophy but the leader could not accept it. She told her girls they were winners and she would not accept the second place trophy. She hurled the trophy across the room and it shattered. I remember saying out loud “what are we teaching our children?” Ted Cruz won Monday night and seemingly that was accepted as fact that night, but today 2 days later he is accused of cheating by Mr. Second Place, Donald Trump. Sure Dr. Ben Carson has accused the Cruz campaign of playing a little fast and loose with the truth, and they have apologized for that, but Carson is not questioning the legitimacy of the process. There are winners and losers in any competition and people need to not only learn to be a good winner but also a good loser.

Would you let someone operate on you who is not a surgeon?

My husband made this point this morning. While watching a Ben Carson my husband said that Carson studied long and hard to become a surgeon. He went on to ask the simple question, “would you let someone operate on you who was not a surgeon?” The answer is no. You want someone with experience and they know what they are doing. So why would we elect a person to lead this country with no experience in politics? Share your thoughts.

Is CNN on a Dr. Carson witch hunt?

CNN seems to be on a mission, and that is to destroy Dr. Ben Carson, They are going full throttle in pursuit of dirt on the doctor. Prior to this I really did not have Carson on my radar, but their relentless pursuit of dirt is making me take a second look at the good doctor. Politico is also doing their due diligence to take potshots at the good doctor. The doctor is the front runner and with that brings more scrutiny but where is this zeal when it comes to Donald Trump? They are afraid of Trump and not Carson, but let’s us not forget Carson said he has his anger issues under control, but I don’t think it is wise to push it.
