Since the National Prayer Breakfast a few days ago…. (which is videotaped routinely)..the 26 minute guest speech by Dr. Ben Carson….of Johns Hopkins hospital’s pediatric surgery..has gone viral on Youtube and elsewhere. Dr. Carson has been interviewed multiple times by news outlets and articles about his speech and his career and family background are also going viral.
Dr.Carson spoke out about issues that
Americans have been concerned about for quite some time…including the impact of national healthcare (known as Obamacare).
Dr. Carson boldly shared his own views on Obamacare, the national debt and deficit, and the moral decay of our nation. Anyone who has seen the tape or heard his interviews knows very well that he is a strong Believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all New Testament born- again believers. His expressions of his strong faith would be expected at the National Prayer breakfast but to hear some who were stunned by Dr. Carson’s speech, you would think that he was committing the gravest of offenses by actually speaking about spiritual qualities at a PRAYER breafast.
Leftist Liberals have gone bonkers over Dr Carson’s speech. I have heard more than one bona fide Liberal say that Dr. Carson “should not have said those things in front of the President”.
This goes to show how Liberals are willing to suspend the First Amendment rights of both freedom of speech for those who do not agree with their views —and freedom of religious expression if anything “offends” “President Thin-Skin” whose life motto is “MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY. We have heard this LIberal song and dance over and over in the past 4 years.
Liberals had no quarrel with the insults, calls to kill past Republican presidents at rallies by the Leftists(recall the videos of Pres Bush 43 being hanged or set fire to via realistic Bush effigies). President Bush 41 and Ronald Reagan were subjected to the vilest of insults and accusations of being too stupid to know how to tie their own shoes. Those remarks did not bring any howls of protest from the Libs who participated in it gleefully.
But when “their” Obama has to sit through a speech that obviously bothered him, Libs go ballistic. Hypocrisy reigns as usual. If all the terrible insults toward Conservative leaders could be replyed in one long series it would take hours or maybe days…. to watch and listen.
Dr. Ben Carson has triggered an uprising of approval because he spoke about issues that have been on at least half of America’s mind….certainly not on the minds of the Dependent and Helpless ones who feed at the Government troughs in counties, states and the nation…and who made sure that the President was re-elected in whatever way it took..but only by a 51-49 percent margin. That is NO MANDATE!
There are still half of Americans who see things in the same way as Dr. Carson.
His life story is inspiring. He grew up as the son of a single mother (who divorced his father when she learned of his Bigamy). Carson and his brother were fortunate to have such a strong parent…their Mother made them take responsibility and she never took the welfare road..she worked as a Domestic for years and managed to support her sons and instill in them a strong ethic of work, study, and reading…and of academic accomplishment.
She controlled the television set to only include 2 hours or so per week..otherwise her sons were reading books and writing book reports for her (which she could not read but they did not know it!)
I find it amazing and inspiring to hear Dr. Carson describe his childhood years with his strong and determined mother who would not let her sons sink into the morass they observed among other children in the school and neighborhood.
Dr. Carson’s amazing testimoney in his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast has fired a new zeal among Americans who agree with him.

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!

One thought on “DR. BEN CARSON”

  1. President “thin-skin”! How true, he does not tolerate criticism well. Same for all of the liberals who have bought in, and now are discovering what they have really bought into. I look for lots of rats leaving the ship as this plays on, but some can never admit they have made a mistake, and will soldier on into oblivion.
