Ben Carson: US Like Ancient Rome; Obama Not My Target

World-renown pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson told conservative radio and television host Armstrong Williams on Friday that his attacks on the nation’s ills in his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast this week were not directed at President Barack Obama.

In his first interview since upstaging the president at the event on Thursday, Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore said his comments were “directed at the situation that is going on in our nation and how we can solve it.”

“It’s not an attack on anybody, but it’s saying there are logical solutions for our problems and there are things that we can all get behind — be we right wing, be we left wing,” Carson said Friday on Williams show “The Right Side.”

“It doesn’t matter, because we need to do the things that will benefit the entire society and get us moving in the right direction. We need to be able to have open discussions.”

Opening his remarks with quotations from the Old Testament books of Proverbs and Second Chronicles, the neurosurgeon blasted the nation’s $16.4 trillion debt, its cumbersome tax system — and its “inefficient” health care system.

President Obama showed no reaction to Carson’s attacks, simply sitting stoically at the dais table. First Lady Michelle Obama also was in attendance.

“Our deficit is a big problem,” said Carson, who last spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1997. “Sixteen-and-a-half trillion dollars. You think that’s not a lot of money? Count one number per second. You know how long it would take to count to 16 trillion? 507,000 years. More than half-a-million years to get there.”

“What about our taxation system?” he continued. “So complex, there is no one who can possibly comply with every jot and tittle of our tax system. If I wanted to get you, I can get you on a tax issue.

‘It doesn’t make any sense. What we need to do is come up with something that’s simple.”

He then discussed the biblical principle of tithing.

“God has given us a system. He didn’t say, “If you crops fail, don’t give me a tithe.’ He didn’t say, ‘If you get a bumper crop, give me a triple-tithe.’ So, there must be something inherently fair about proportionality.

“You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10, you put in $1,” he said to applause from the audience.

“But some people say, ‘That’s not fair because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made $10’ — but where does it say that you have the hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don’t need to hurt him.

“It’s that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands,” Carson said. “That money needs to be back here — building our infrastructure and creating jobs. We’re smart enough to figure out how to do that.”

As for health care, he began, “We need to have good health care for everybody, but we have to figure out efficient ways to do it.”

Carson’s solution: “When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account (HSA) to which money can be contributed — pretax — from the time you’re born ’til the time you die.

“When you die, you can pass it on to your family members, so that when you’re 85 years old and you’ve got six diseases, you’re not trying to spend up everything,” he added. “You’re happy to pass it on and there’s nobody talking about death panels.”

He added: “For the people who are indigent who don’t have any money, we can make contributions to their HSA each month because we already have this huge pot of money. Instead of sending it to some bureaucracy, let’s put it in their HSAs. Now, they have some control over their own health care.”

In his interview with Williams on Friday, Carson said likened the United States to the ancient Roman civilization.

“The Roman Empire was very, very much like us,” he told Williams. “They lost their moral core, their sense of values in terms of who they were. And after all of those things converged together, they just went right down the tubes very quickly.

“When you look at America, it’s not too hard to see great similarities. We’ve spread ourselves all over the place. We have incredible expenses. We don’t adjust — and, consequently, we expand the deficit and the debt and entitlement programs, and not living within our means and not adjusting programs and not adjusting people’s expectations.

“When it comes to wanting things, people don’t really care about the national debt,” Carson said. “They don’t really care about the future; they just care about, ‘Give me my check so I can eat next week.’

“That’s understandable, but we have not created the right kinds of expectations — and we really need to start doing that or we will face a similar fate.”

    Instead of stirring rhetoric filled with hope and promise, Obama pledged that under his leadership, “our path is harder” and “our road is longer.”
    Seriously? After four years of the worst economic recovery since the Depression, falling incomes, lower-paying jobs, increased hopelessness and exploding debt, all Obama has to offer is that he’ll make this nightmare last even longer?

    WASHINGTON — A increasing number of House Democrats are bringing people affected by gun violence as their guests to next week’s State of the Union, with the list now including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.).

    Pelosi announced Friday that she plans to bring a fourth grader from Newtown, Conn., along with her mother, as her guests to President Barack Obama’s annual address to the nation. A Pelosi spokesman said the student does not attend Sandy Hook Elementary School, the site of a December mass shooting, but attends another elementary school in Newtown. Her office is not releasing the names

    (Washington Examiner)

    On a Reddit AMA (Ask me anything) yesterday, former CBS broadcaster Dan Rather (Now with AXS-TV) was understandably asked a question about ‘Rathergate’ – the story on George W. Bush’s service in the Air National Guard that used forged documents in the report.

    Rather responded brusquely:

    Number 1 – the facts of case are not in dispute.

    Number 2 – no one had ever established that the documents were forged (those who attack them argued that we didn’t do enough to demonstrate that they were not forged)

    Biden Holds Meeting On Mental Health With… Actor Bradley Cooper?…

    Vice President Biden met with actor Bradley Cooper and director David Russell on Thursday to discuss mental health issues.

    Biden’s office tweeted out a photo of the meeting with “Silver Linings Playbook” star and director, noting: “VP Biden, Russell & Cooper agree on the importance of acceptance, understanding, and access to treatment for those with mental illness.”

    In the film, which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture, Cooper plays a man with a bipolar disorder trying to get his life back together. He was nominated for Best Actor. Russell was nominated for Best Director.

    Final voting for the Academy Awards begins Friday and ends Feb. 19.

    Biden has been working on mental-health issues as part of the administration’s effort to reduce gun violence.

    Discussing these things with actors is so much more productive than talking to actual mental health professionals, after all…

    Brown Student Health Insurance To Cover Sex Changes

    Students at Brown University who decide they want to change genders will now be covered under the school’s generous student health insurance plan.

    Beginning in August, Brown’s student health insurance plan will pay for more than a dozen different sexual reassignment surgery procedures, including scrotoplasty, labiaplasty, clitoroplasty and placement of testicular prostheses, reports The Brown Daily Herald. The plan as currently configured will cover only students, not staff.

    “We identified this as an important benefit for students to have access to,” Director of Insurance and Purchasing Services Jeanne Hebert wrote in an email to the school’s student newspaper. She added that the new health care benefit is part of a broader effort “to support all students” at Brown

    Twitter is just newsfeed essentially that you can personalize. It works in the browser. http://www.twitter.com. You can be anonymous. You just favorite other @people you like to hear and then they appear in your newsfeed. Twitter has more spontaneous content and faster spreading content then blog or a website.

    what is the ‘authentic’ black community and its white liberal enablers going to do to discredit Dr. Carson in order to protect their cult-god Obama?

    Steven Seagal To Join Sheriff Joe Arpaio Training Volunteer Posse Members To Defend Phoenix-Area Schools

    The self-proclaimed “America’s Toughest Sheriff” is joining forces with action movie star Steven Seagal to train volunteer armed posse members to defend Phoenix-area schools against gunmen.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced the controversial plan in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting in December.

    The exercise is planned for Saturday at a closed school site. Sheriff’s officers will act as shooters, and 25 teenagers will play the part of students during mock scenarios involving up to three gunmen.

    The sheriff’s office says Seagal, best known for his roles in movies such as Above the Law and Under Siege, will lead training on hand-to-hand defence tactics, among other techniques, drawing from his expertise in martial arts.

    Well, I don’t know how you cover the prayer breakfast (which is all BS IMO anyway) and ignore Carson.

    OTOH, the WHITE enablers sure as hell do know………

    So you think he’ll be ignored?

    I certainly hope not…he’s a sensation, and there are many more like him…people like them need to step up…the black community will heal itself from within, if at all…but the MSM owns America right now and they have to want what’s best also, usually they don’t

    Nope. Sometimes I can be a bit anal. I have certain things I have to watch/read/do before I allow myself to continue on. In the meantime, I collect and catalog.

    On my current ‘watch’ list is all the episodes of that televison show 24, which I never got to see. I’m on season 7, episode 4. Next in the catalog is McGinty.

    You don’t want to know about the ‘read’ list. Current is “Taste of War” ” and “Gulag” (they have to be understood together). Next up is “The Naked Communist”.

    On my “do’ list is organizing new computers for the office and preparing just general household stuff (all my spring cleaning is done -- pantry, closets, kitchen cabinets etc.)

    I really appreciate your recos -- please don’t think that because I don’t follow up right away they are wasted.

    *smooch*

    Oh I’m glad you’re here. I’ve missed the last 2 weeks of Justified (and NCIS) -- we were at the animal hospital w/the beagle. If/when you have time would you fill me in. In order not to derail the thread, the admins have my permission to give you my email.

    You know, Netflix has saved my sanity. Up at all hours w/Molly because she can’t sleep and I just take us both and the laptop down to the family room to let Hubby rest until Molly can fall asleep on the sofa. I’ve never been a television person, more of a book person…but there is some really good stuff out there.

    Don’t be silly. I watch the movie WHILE I clean the closets. 15 mins on, 15 mins off. Makes everything tolerable and nothing is a stretch. Pacing is a lot of mgmt.

    thanks! bookmarked. gotta go. Molly the Beagle is puking again -- something that doesn’t come in 15 min increments.

    I don’t want to belabor anything, but for those of you who pray and for those of you who don’t but just understand the power of good thoughts…

    Please send them her way. She has terminal liver cancer and melanoma in her mouth was just diagnosed last week -- surgery for that is next week. She’s almost 11 yrs old -- in April if she makes it -- and is the epitome of a ‘hilarious in your face’ dog. She has been the joy of our life all these years and we just want her passing to be as easy as possible.

    Thanks

    Now for the paper towels and the powder stuff….

    @ eaglesoars:
    @eagles, just a quick question… why surgery next week?

    Is it for you or for Molly?

    I have to ask, are you prolonging her suffering? I really don’t know, only you know that answer.


  93. eaglesoars
    94 | February 10, 2013 1:50 am

    @ Calo:
    Hi Calo,

    stopping by to shut down all the windows.

    The surgery is for Molly. The growth is on her lower left lip but fortunately not involving the bone. She doesn’t even know it’s there. I found it by accident Sunday before last as we were playing -- I had her on her back, tickling her and her lips/mouth fell back in laughter (yes, dogs laugh). I had her to the hospital on the following Monday -- i.e., the next day -- and the x-rays did not show any spread/mestasis.

    The liver cancer will kill her. When she was diagnosed last Sept she was already more tumor than liver and it was in ALL her liver nodes. Not operable.

    The lodestar is her quality of life and the baseline for that is how does she want to eat? And is she in pain?

    I have had to give Molly pain med exactly once -- and her docs have calibrated her meds to control her nausea, etc.

    This growth could outgrow its blood supply, rotting in her mouth, etc. -- I could go on.

    Your question -- is Molly’s suffering being prolonged -- is well-meant. knowing you from your postings here.

    Molly will NEVER suffer. She’s nauseated sometimes, she sometimes doesn’t want to eat, sometimes I have to get a fever down -- but suffer? Never. She has the best doctors in the world -- that is not an exaggeration. Someone once said to me “You will never regret letting them go one day too early. You will always regret letting them go one day too late”.

    I won’t let that happen to her, I would give my life.

    Here is the medical community taking care of her.

    Southpaws. Sharon Shaefor is her primary oncologist.

    @ eaglesoars:
    Thank you for your reply eagles.
    It just is a question I ask others and even myself when nursing along an ill pet or even a family member, for that matter. I’ve seen a lot done in the guise of modern medicine to prolong life at the expense of quality of life.

    I know how much you love your dog, Molly.
    And, I am thankful you are such a wonderful “mom” to her.
