From what I've seen of Dr. Carson, he's an inspirational example of what you can accomplish in America if you work hard and stick to principles that are time tested and proven. The story of how his mother, with her 3rd grade education, worked so hard to raise him and instill in him the importance of education is a testament for the road to success.He seems to be a good man and would make a good inspirational leader.Unfortunately, he seems to be too good for the cesspool of the District of Corruption. He'd be eaten alive by the slimy liberal media. He'd be a babe in a woodland filled with political wolves. If he is the man of principles he appears to be, he wouldn't take to being handled and managed by political advisers and media handlers.It pains me to say it but America has sunk too low for a man like Dr. Carson. Everything good and decent is open game for ridicule in today's America.
That is an unfortunate consequence of today's political enviroment. Very sad indeed RN, although it can also be positive when people start listening and paying attention they may wake up to the nastiness they have had enough of and expose those those very people who are causing the discourse. I say go for it. Thanks for stopping by
"Thanks for stopping by"It's my pleasure, as you see,I'm not too particular about who's blog I comment on. Even yours.Good day.
Please believe me when I say I’m not trying to insult you with my next comment, but perhaps the reason why your blog won’t/didn’t get as many hits as the progressives ones do, it’s because that they have more interesting things to say than you do. Based solely on your comments for this blog and the last one, I can tell that you are a Right-leaning person. You prescribe to the majority thought process of relative truth, which is very much in vogue with popular media. Perhaps people are more interested in a counter-cultural blog such as this, than anything that would reinforce or support the view of popular media. Again, I’m really not trying to be insulting but rather bring up possible reasons why their blog is popular and yours isn’t/wasn’t.In today’s society. Anybody that tries to stick up for traditional or conservative values is consistently mocked and/or torn down. Just look at all the scorn heaped on Phil Robertson for expressing a personal opinion. Or at the nutty Basketball owner, or Paula Deen. Compared to other commenters such as The Redneck you usually take the time to engage the content and not just dismiss it or the author. At the very least I can respect you for not resorting to such cheap “comments” such as “You’re an @$$hole” or “F**k You!”.Getting a reaction doesn’t necessarily make your point stick well, especially if you use an admittedly crowd drawing tactics. That sort of comparison is like saying Howard Stern is effective because of his being a shock jock and doing excessive stunts and the like. He gets a reaction, but one can say that he’s still a crude individual in using that as a method: even if it’s technically effective.I’d say I’m only partly left leaning, but I lean more towards the Libertarian’s point of view. and it’s in terms of civil liberties and the like. But you should be the “Shaw” of the right and you’d see how your blog would flourish.
Actually I am not really looking for more commentors,I just like to vent here. I do find though that many conservative blogs such As Geez and Western Hero tend to have more traffic than Shaw's . While she may be quite knowledgeable on some things ,she can be insulting to those who don't lean as far left as she does.
I guess what I mean is I am not looking for notoriety. Of course I welcome all comments,even Shaw's,lol
Late Breaking News!Ben Carson refuses to declare political party — or rule out 2016 runHe wouldn’t declare a political party or admit to making any plans for a 2016 presidential run, but Dr. Ben Carson assured a wildly supportive audience at a National Press Club luncheon Wednesday that he has no plans to fade from the political scene. (Washington Times)
Whatever he decides I am sure he will be a positive asset
This year's 9-9-9
Why is that Ducky because he's black? Seriously?
Could it be that Dr Carson did as Colon Powell did and voted for Obama because he was perceived as black? And now can't own up to his mistake? 90% of "blacks" voted for obama and from what I can tell voted for him solely because they perceived him as black. A more racist action I can't think of.
Yes that is that saying "voting for someone based on their skin color is just as racist than not voting for someone for the same reason"
Rand Paul is a doctor, Howard Dean is a doctor. They seem to come in all flavors.
There you go,thanks BB
