7 Fascinating Facts About Dr. Carson

"The epic speech that Dr. Benjamin Carson gave at Thursday’s Nation Prayer Breakfast has gone viral. His address, which was delivered just feet away from President Barack Obama, railed against political correctness, with the doctor subsequently taking overtly-conservative stances on key social and political issues. The respectful tone and boldness with which he spoke has created intense intrigue.

So, TheBlaze has assembled some key information about Carson in an effort to tell you more about his truly captivating life."

The Fact The He Pissed Obama Off

is enough for me! Hah!

skippy

Ben Carson is a true self-made man

He is a great example and role model to young people and his advice about education should be heeded. He knows by personal experience the importance of a thinking people. Why you guys have to go do the rabbit hole of what you believe and what you think he should believe is beyond me. The fact that he had the guts to stand up there and give a politically incorrect speech right in front of Obama and railing against what is truly the blight and bain of our country's situation - the horrid educational system, is what I applaud.

You realize if we had a thinking, educated people, we might have hope of getting out of the mess we are in. It does not matter what he believes about all of the other dribble, what he is preaching is revolutionary and he also happens to be black and has lived it. Obama hasn't a clue what being raised black truly means. This man does and look what he has accomplished and he doesn't believe in excuses and special privileges. Appreciate what he is instead of trying to fit him into your mold.

He has given a lot of people a lot of food for thought and I am thankful for that. He was a great inspiration to my son when I was homeschooling him and we read his book. Also, if you know anything about Seventh Day Adventists - their philosophy is revolutionary and don't go with the political system so he isn't part of any "club" as some of you are implying. Before you all go off on your Carson bashing, you might want to read some of his books and look into what he has accomplished in his career. Then come back and discuss who is Ben Carson.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

there was a big sign that wanted me to sign up for

The Blaze that kept me from reading the article.

I think it's only natural to want to try to find out if someone is a 'plant'. Maybe he is; maybe he isn't.

Maybe he is the real deal, but that doesn't mean he has to run for a political office.

I don't know--

I believe there are still some good men/women left who haven't necessarily aligned themselves to either the good or the evil--

but if he's good, they'll try to bring him down--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

7 much more interesting questions about Dr. Carson

1. How does he feel about vaccinations?
2. How does he feel about alternative cancer treatment, and my right to access "alternatives" FIRST, if I so desire?
3. How does he feel about the right to home school?
4. Does he have any questions about 9-11?
5. What does he know and feel about the USS Liberty incident?
6. What does he think of the SPLC and AIPAC?
7. What does the SPLC think of him?

A "made for TV" movie about him already? C'mon folks, we are being spoon fed. How did he get on that podium to begin with? When is Chuck Baldwin going to be invited to the prayer breakfast?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I wonder if Chuck Baldwin

would even consent to attend such an event.

The autobiographical movie is 5 years old.

How did he get on the podium?

Have you done any research on this guy?

A pioneer in pediatric neurology, he was the first surgeon to develop techniques to successfully separate Siamese twins joined at the brain!

He was the Head of the Department of Pediatric Neurology at Johns Hopkins when he was 33 years old. He is brilliant! He is full of common sense, and he is spiritually driven.

I find it quite distressing that you, FC, dismiss him so easily.

Among other things, he just stood on that podium and smacked down the man we all despise for falling in line and continuing to throw our country into the trash can of history as our education system and welfare system destroys us.

Chuck Baldwin absolutely has a place in this discussion but to make these unfounded accusations against this man (who is a TRUE AMERICAN and has LIVED the life) from poverty to world recognition of his contributions to medicine and the youth of America (Carson Scholarships) is, in a word, absurd.

I would hope you would do a little research on this man before you say anything else. To dismiss him from the table displays a serious lack of integrity in your argument.

9/11 Truth.

I did not dismiss him, I asked more questions

I am having this man crammed down my throat as a great hero, and frankly, I don't go for the "hero" thing - it always makes me suspicious. When I get answers to any or all of my questions, I will decide if I think he is legit, or the next "controlled opposition" tool.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

fair enough...

agree--

this man is a 'doctor', though, so a bit more neutral, perhaps--

Chuck would be so very obviously righteous that--

he'll never make it to that podium! LOL!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

good questions

Check out the story about Benghazi

in The Blaze, and send every Hellary loving person you know the picture of her. Is this the face of a woman you could trust? I think not!

What sounds too good to be truth...

Probably is!

What's his political party?

Who did he make political contributions to?
What is his foreign policy?
What is his position on the cannabis issues medical and industrial?
Is he pro-choice or pro-life?
What's his stand on the second amendment?
What does he think about the UN Agenda?
What does he think about rights for people of color, women, children, unions, people who come to the USA illegally, have children here?
Those are questions I've got off the top of me head.. and of course, where does this leave Amash?

(( Granger ))

:-( According to this, Carson contributed to obamney !!:

Wow, you really must want the r3VOLution car badge.. that is the SECOND time that you have mentioned Amash! Go Justin!

Great questions. I would also like to know where he stands with Massie, Rand and Judge Nap :-)

I think that I may have to send Dr. Carson the 2012 Tampa Presidential Comparison Sheet. He can definately learn a thing or more from PAF ;-)

Using your open secrets link I found this:

BTW - I still have a 1991 red Jeep Cherokee that I bought brand new. LOL

(((((PAF)))))

Well, Maybe Dr. Carson had a revelation?

Or maybe tptb manipulate us by giving us speakers, messengers like Ron Paul and Dr. Carson? left, right, black, white, and the least of the issues become their strongest issues, because that's what the ptb actually want, no matter how many people fill stadeums, and vote? Ron Paul and Dr. Carson are like boxes of chocolate....

I have contemplated getting a car badge since the first day RobHino posted about them. I especially like them because they look like my banner: rEVOLution, and not r3VOLution.

I'm sorry that you think I'm mean. I think maybe growing up with more teasing than LOVE, I've developed a thick skin, and am not so sensitive, to protect myself. I LOVE people and it hurts me to think that you think I'm mean. Being you think I'm mean is enough to say I am undeserving of a car badge from you, so please forget it.

More than a car badge, I was really trying to wrap my mind about how to fundraise for the convention.. I am going to my committee meeting on Saturday and I am going to ask those who are not going to help me with the costs. I really think that because I'm representing my county district and the county, that they should be funding me (or providing fundraising events enabling me to get funds). I fancy the idea that friends on DP would step up.. but not until after I ask my county.

It was very kind of you to say you would buy me a car badge. Thank you for being nice to me. I'm not going to hold you to it.. buy yourself a couple of beers and some wings instead.

LOVE ALWAYS, BBG http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN3E9Yyd1HA

Continued luck with educating people on Amash!!

*** GRANGER ***

Whoa, slow down!! I do NOT think that you are mean, lol. I was being humorous in that post and thought that you would have gotten it!

I know that it is a forum and you cannot see when I am having fun with you.. please do not take me so serious when I make wise-crack comments. Well, unless I do mean it ;-)

Granger, I offered you the gift from my heart, your badge will be in the mail this afternoon :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

(((((((PAF)))))))

Since it is from your heart.. now hear this:

I still have my first car, a 86 suzuki samurai, I bought because I have this thing for going to hot springs that are off road.

I always took really good care of my car. About three years ago I smelled gas, took the car to a mechanic for repairs, then parked it for two weeks. I decided to run the engine, started it up, and it caught fire. I had an extinguisher, put the fire out, and it took me some time, but I had the wiring replaced and began using it as a farm truck, hauling feed and supplies.

I decided to have it painted last year, and took it to a shop, where the guys all LOVED my car. When they were finished, the owner of the shop said, "I bet you didn't think you were going to get a new car." RIGHT. I didn't think I was going to get a new car.. but they gave the suzuki the OZ treatment.

When I went to pick up the car, the person who gave me a ride wanted to see the car, so we went inside and I was about to touch it, when the guy who painted the car told me, "DON'T TOUCH THE CAR!!" I asked, "What's wrong?" He said, "You don't touch cars like this.. you get a compressor and blow the dust off."

WHAaaaaaaaat? That's right. They wanted me to go to car shows. I'm not going to car shows. It was crazy.

The car is in perfect condition. There is not a speck of rust or bondo anywhere. Everywhere I go, people come up and tell me what a awesome car.

Now when they painted it, the one thing that happened that I wasn't happy about is they removed the suzuki signage from the back swing door. It looked empty, and I thought... what a perfect place for a rEVOLution car badge, when I saw RobHino's rEVOLution car badges. What stalled me was I know those car badges are not removable. If for some reason I wanted to remove the car badge.. I'd have to get the swing door re-painted. So I think about this ALL the time. Should I, or should I not? I've thought, "Sure you should, because it would look good, the car is a beautiful original red, white removeable hard top with sliding, tinted windows, the carpet is black, the upholstry is charcoal grey, with brushed aluminum and charcoal checked inserts, and perferated gray in the center of the seats. I have a personal license plates with a message of LOVE, and the license plate holders are Jesus Fish. The rims are original, sand blasted, and repainted original white, and I've got all weather terrain tires that are totally perfect. The car is the envy of all the suzuki club out here.

If I was to put a rEVOLution car badge.. everyone would see it BIG TIME! My plans for the car is to make it my work truck for the professional cheffing business I'm starting in April (after I get my recertification and catering license).

So ((((PAF))))) I don't know how much more I can do to tell you I LOVE you, than by applying the rEVOLutiin car badge to my beloved samurai, besides post a picture on DP. Which I will.

((( Granger )))

Awesome story, I really enjoyed it :-)

About the badge being permanent, I considered the same thing about removal. Not because I would ever want to, but in case something happened to the car and I want to preserve the emblem. No problemo: 3M makes a lot of automotive products which I use. They have automotive double-stick tape which is made for this exact purpose - emblems and side molding.

Remove the emblem carefully, use 3M double-stick and use a knife/razor to trim the excess :-)

I will definately want to see pictures!
