Ben Carson makes excuses for his embarrassing ignorance — but his explanations don’t add u512

If my Oreo joke was a TOS example of racism than so is this cartoon. Anyone not getting the cringeworthyness of Carson's All Over The News "Oreo" gaff are dead.  The already long established racial implications of the word "Oreo" are exactly why it is, "The Gaff That Spawned A Million Memes". Trying to pin that on me is pure bullshit...

OMG, I heard parts of his testimony. I don't understand how he managed what he did in the past because now he is a complete moron.

Yes, and false grace is less than no grace at all. The only thing more malignant than Trump appointing Carson to head HUD with the explicit purpose of harming, defaming and defunding a much needed and very important department of our government was the utterly unprepared Carson accepting the job out of pure spite for the poor mostly nonwhite Americans who depend upon HUD. Oreo? My Ass! 

3.1.4  Texan1211  replied to  JBB @3.1.3    last year

Congress defunded HUD? 

Why would Democrats do that?

Because we no longer have a legislative or judicial branch, and we don't hold elections anymore.

Amazing thing about republicans?

Sure.  Idolizing a...……..uh...….'dude' hanging with a porn star while the 'wife' was home with the baby.  Now, that takes guts.  Got to hand it to them.

5.1  Ronin2  replied to  bbl-1 @5    last year


If only Trump had that all important D behind his name.  Everything in the world would be right then.

5.1.2  katrix  replied to  Ronin2 @5.1    last year

Nope, Trump had a D behind his name for decades, and was a lying, loser piece of shit then, just as he is now.  There is nothing partisan about recognizing what a narcissistic charlatan he is and has always been.

5.1.3  Ronin2  replied to  katrix @5.1.2    last year

Dems loved him when he had the D behind his name. They only turned on him when he adopted the dreaded R, and tried to become the Republican king maker.

Of course the same can be said for some Republicans- they hated him when he had a D behind his name; and loved him when he adopted the R.  Trump is still a Dem, and does thing no true Republican could ever support- starting with trying to end all foreign US military engagements. Protectionism, that is something no Republican would ever preach. Tariffs, Republicans are free trade all the way (Though Trump is trying to get US to true free trade; or at least more equitable free trade. I don't Republicans supporting him; but Nancy and Chuck sure are). 

As for partisan. I will believe that the left isn't partisan when it takes a deep breath and says; it is over. Then starts concentrating on a platform that isn't so far left that it only appeals to hard line socialists; cleans up it's overflowing clown car of candidates; and actually gets a front runner that isn't a leftist hack, or so socially moronic (Joe Biden we are looking at you), that they can't understand they need to change the way they conduct themselves around women. 

Partisans on both sides are hilarious.  When it was about Obama's birth certificate the hard right lost it. Not realizing that if even if it was fake, and Obama was removed from office, it would have torn this country in half. Now it is the left with their impeach Trump at all costs, since Hillary lost a fair election.  Not realizing that if they succeed, and their followers might very well force them into it, they will fracture this country irreversibly.

5.1.4  katrix  replied to  Ronin2 @5.1.3    last year

I find it really hard to believe that there were people even back then who didn't recognize what a lying jerk he is, regardless of his political party.  But sadly, you're probably correct.

Holder served as the 82nd Attorney General of the United States from 2009 to 2015 under President Barack Obama. He was the first African American to hold the position of U.S. Attorney General. This was back in the day when a U.S. Attorney General and the President served the people.

Someone printed this garbage; and actually believes that Eric Holder has the right to lecture anyone? Eric Holder of Fast and Furious fame? Eric Holder that had Barack Obama grant him, and his wife no less, executive privilege to keep him from having to testify in front of Congress about it? Holder who was Obama's self described "wing man" while DOJ? And I thought the left had no sense of humor. Well they don't still don't. What this shows is they really lack is a sense of reality, and ethics.

6.1  Ed-NavDoc  replied to  Ronin2 @6    last year

Don't forget Holder was a major player in the Danforth Commission and Waco cover-up.

6.1.1  bbl-1  replied to  Ed-NavDoc @6.1    last year

What Waco cover-up?  That Koresh was a nut bag and a child molester? 

6.1.2  Ed-NavDoc  replied to  bbl-1 @6.1.1    last year

Why don't you go back and read up on how that fire that destroyed the compound really started and the Danforth Commission's part in it afterwards and then get back to us. Holder was up to his neck in it. 

6.1.3  bbl-1  replied to  Ed-NavDoc @6.1.2    last year

I know all of that.  So what.  The 'compound' was just another Jim Jones redoubt.  Good riddance.

'I know all of that.  So what.  The 'compound' was just another Jim Jones redoubt.  Good riddance.'

Agreed 1000%.  Who would want to keep the reminder of what Koresh did to those women and children?

6.1.6  Tessylo  replied to  Ed-NavDoc @6.1.2    last year

What cover up?

Also, Koresh was responsible for the deaths of all those women and children.  NO ONE ELSE.

6.1.7  Texan1211  replied to  bbl-1 @6.1.3    last year

ATF could have easily served a warrant on Koresh on any one of his many trips into Waco.

And thus avoided the whole damn mess and the multitude of deaths.

They deliberately chose not to go that route.

6.1.8  bbl-1  replied to  Texan1211 @6.1.7    last year

Warrant my ass.  The blood is on Koresh's hands and no one else.  As far as the children, the parents brought them there.  The parents were worthless.  At least that gene strain ended.

6.1.9  Texan1211  replied to  bbl-1 @6.1.8    last year

Sorry you can't recognize a botched mess when it stares you in the face.

6.1.10  Ed-NavDoc  replied to  Texan1211 @6.1.9    last year

Another case of there being none so blind as those who will not see...

6.1.11  Texan1211  replied to  Ed-NavDoc @6.1.10    last year

Some people think that if you dare to suggest that the government could have handled the whole thing differently, you are supporting Koresh.

Isn't that rather stupid?

Simple fact is, Koresh came into Waco often. He could have been arrested without incident had govt. chose to do so.

They are no longer an actual political party, they do not serve the American people only less than 40% of their own base and their PAC's, money it their motivator and propaganda sells it to the ignorant.

They care nothing about serving Americans or America any longer and in fact they no longer even try to hide their sell out to foreign countries and their sell out to lobbyists and special interests. 

Trump just let them take off their masks and show the swamp for what it is and Republicans are the toads we always knew them to be. The level of corruption, incompetence, the number of people investigated, fired, unable to be confirmed, those who have pled guilty to crimes, those who are currently in jail or awaiting a jail sentence are the Republican legacy.

The Bush era was bad, and completely collapsed along with the economy but Trump was not the answer to restore the party.

Your post is nonsense and furthermore communist redistribution of wealth programs by the Federal Government violate the limitations placed upon the Federal Government by the Constitution 

In Federalist 41 Hamilton argued that the “general welfare” clause could not be used to expand the federal government beyond what was intended.

It has been urged and echoed, that the power “to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts, and excises, to pay the debts, and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States,” amounts to an unlimited commission to exercise every power which may be alleged to be necessary for the common defense or general welfare…But what color can the objection have, when a specification of the objects alluded to by these general terms immediately follows, and is not even separated by a longer pause than a semicolon?…For what purpose could the enumeration of particular powers be inserted, if these and all others were meant to be included in the preceding general power? Nothing is more natural nor common than first to use a general phrase, and then to explain and qualify it by a recital of particulars. But the idea of an enumeration of particulars which neither explain nor qualify the general meaning, and can have no other effect than to confound and mislead, is an absurdity

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, elaborated upon this limitation in a 1792 letter to James Robertson:

With respect to the two words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators. If the words obtained so readily a place in the "Articles of Confederation," and received so little notice in their admission into the present Constitution, and retained for so long a time a silent place in both, the fairest explanation is, that the words, in the alternative of meaning nothing or meaning everything, had the former meaning taken for granted.


“If Congress can apply money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may establish teachers in every State, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public Treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post roads.  In short, every thing, from the highest object of State legislation, down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress; for every object I have mentioned would admit the application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the general welfare.”

James Madison, on the House floor during debates on a Cod Fishery bill [February 1792]

James Madison Federalist No. 45, Alleged Danger from the Powers of the Union to the State Governments Considered, Independent Journal, January 26, 1788;

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.” – 


"The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like state governments, whose powers are more general.Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government."
-- James Madison, speech in the House of Representatives, January 10, 1794
