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.

2016 presidential contenders include: an egomaniac, a socialist, a liar, a man who can’t keep his campaign money separated from his personal money, a failed Fortune 500 executive, a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who never learned to fight, a man who overcame the hood to perform amazing surgery, a man who can’t get along with his colleagues, a man who has a problem saying no to donuts, a man who stands proudly with lawbreakers and a man that is a military hawk. All of these people want sit in the oval office and none of them are perfect. We have that in common with them, but even if you disagree with them they are doing something. They have an idea and a commitment to this country. So as we sit on our couches with our popcorn waiting on the next shoe to drop give them a little credit for at least being willing to try.
This election season us proving to be amusing. Dr. Ben Carson has the calmest demeanor. he has been described as unflappable. He makes his point without raising his voice. He refuses to get in the mud with Donald Trump even when Trump hangs the low energy moniker on him, but what makes this funny is America is quick to label a black man as angry. Carson is the opposite and his calm demeanor seems to be a bone of contention. SMH
We will elect a new president in November of 2016, but judging by the media obsession one would think that election day is next month not over a year from now. Somewhere along the way politics turned into entertainment and entertainment populates the media on a 24/7 basis. Candidates make the rounds from state fairs to late night television all in search of voters. They will do stand up, sing-a-longs, baby kissing…you name it nothing is off limits, but is the way we want to select the most powerful leader on earth? Share your thoughts.
Jeb Bush was questioned by a white audience member about the lack of black people at his meeting last night. Bush said “our message is one of hope and aspiration. It isn’t one of division and get in line and we’ll take care of you with free stuff.” Where is this free stuff? I never got any of it nor was I looking for it. I come from a family of hard workers who never looked for government handouts and i am sick of candidates pandering to the base. It’s statements like this that keep blacks away from the GOP not their desire for free stuff.

Donald Trump loves to talk, but he wants to control the conversation. If a media person asks him a question he does not like or does not know the answer to they are in the wrong. First it was Fox News darling Megyn Kelly. She asked a hard question during the debates and he went on a Twitter/media attack on her. She was a terrible reporter not fit to question the Emperor. Now Hugh Hewitt is a 3rd class radio host. Not fit to shine or lick the Emperor’s boots. So now we know the Emperor will not answer difficult questions. He will attack because the Emperor is wearing no clothes, and soon all will have to acknowledge that fact.
If someone asked me my favorite Bible verse I would say Jeremiah 29:11. There would be no hesitation so Donald Trump recently declared that the Bible was his favorite book. He made this declaration while standing in the heart of the Bible belt. Some might say he was pandering to the locals but it was great to see some journalists finally challenge him and to see him respond with non answers and generalizations.

I have never been a fan of Hillary Clinton, but I do have respect for her. She has survived the Bill Clinton sex scandal, she was elected to the Senate and she is a former Secretary of State. She is a smart and shrewd woman. So to see her playing dumb during this email scandal insults our intelligence and it demeans hers. I am sick of hearing news stories on the daily about the emails. If she was sending emails from n unsecure server why didn’t someone say something during her tenure as Secretary of State? When they were receiving emails that had (dot. hillary instead of dot.gov) did anyone get a clue that maybe something was wrong? Clinton needs to come clean and simply admit it was wrong. Was it criminal? Who knows but we do know it is political. Does this disqualify her from being president? No but it will make the fight a little harder. This can’t simply be dismissed. It is a big thing but it is not the end of the world.
