Just glad someone like Dr. Carson is not afraid to come right out and say what a lot of us are thinking.
It would be sweet poetic justice, however, if he were to become the next black Republican president.
Then we'd get to call you all racists. Fortunately for you, the majority of conservatives don't stoop that low.
"Despite his academic improvement, Carson still had a violent temper. In his interview with the American Academy of Achievement, he recalled trying to hit his mother over the head with a hammer because of a disagreement over what clothes he should wear. In a dispute with a classmate over a locker, he cut a three-inch gash in the other boy's head. However, at the age of 14, Carson reached a turning point after he nearly stabbed a friend to death because the boy had changed the radio station."

You hypocrites would have called him a thug and Galt would have applauded if a Zimmerman had shot him...and Herman Cain is a cheater who used his position to sexually assault white women...Alan West should have been court martialed, but they're all great guys when you want to attack the president.

If he's more liberal than conservative, he most certainly will lie. Though not liking Obama is admirable in and of itself, he's way too liberal for me.
It's called principles. Just as I don't compromise on conservative principles, Obama hasn't on Marxist principles. I'm not willing to support anyone just because he's a little less liberal than Obama.
liberal?

Here are a few examples of Obama's effective conservatism:

His stimulus bill was half the size that his advisers thought necessary;
He continued Bush’s war and national security policies without change and even retained Bush’s defense secretary;
He put forward a health plan almost identical to those that had been supported by Republicans such as Mitt Romney in the recent past, pointedly rejecting the single-payer option favored by liberals;
He caved to conservative demands that the Bush tax cuts be extended without getting any quid pro quo whatsoever;
And in the past few weeks he has supported deficit reductions that go far beyond those offered by Republicans.

Further evidence can be found in the writings of outspoken liberals such as New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who has condemned Obama’s conservatism ever since he took office.

Conservatives will, of course, scoff at the idea of Obama being any sort of conservative, just as liberals scoffed at Nixon being any kind of liberal. But with the benefit of historical hindsight, it’s now obvious that Nixon was indeed a moderate liberal in practice. And with the passage of time, it’s increasingly obvious that Clinton was essentially an Eisenhower Republican. It may take 20 years before Obama’s basic conservatism is widely accepted as well, but it’s a fact.

Rush is right!!! He's got you progressives scared to death! The man isn't going to run for office. He can do much more out of office than in. Did you know he and his wife sponsor hundreds of scholarships each year? That he was brought up poor? The man is a genius with real accomplishments. Not some carnival backer community organizer.

Exactly, and the notion that if a person is passed out drunk that she becomes fair game is outrageous. The girl was underaged and drinking, as were all of them. Someone should have called her parents and told them to come pick up their daughter.
Hopefully this case will have been a wake up call to teenagers regarding drinking, sex, taking and posting photos of someone naked and being abused, this is never funny and that fact that they thought it was is testiment to the sickness that has become part of our society. Joy and laughter at the expense of someones misfortune and pain is sadistic.
This case should be discussed in all schools, by all coaches. Football players have that cocky attitude that they are above the rules. And, the coaches encourage and cover it up.
Galt generally agrees, but doubts this was the first time this individual got drunk, came home drunk, and wonders where the parents are in situations like this.

Where does lily draw the consent line on alcohol level?

When your daughter does drugs with her friends and then has sex, is that "rape"?

Obama & the Democorrupts in the White House lie!

The administration promised that the stimulus would knock unemployment down to about 5.5% by now. It has not even come close to that mark.

Sure am glad we spent/borrowed all the money, for nothing.

It has definitely become a game of surviving the liberal tactic of targeting their greatest threat and then systematically going about destroying their character using dirty campaign ads, lies and smears and digging up the same old social issues that are ignored until an election year to make liberals look like angels among demons and to avoid defending their own political positions on the very important issues...but Dr. Carson has apparently been besieged with requests to run for political office.

He may just prove to be a tougher nut to crack than the liberal lean mean machine probably has in their crosshairs already to target just in case.

Galt does not think Syria and its entire population is not worth one single American life.

As long as the crazy people are just killing each other, who cares? Kind of like Chicago in the Middle east.

Soldiers should never be court-martialed for killing the enemy, which, in a guerrilla war, is the entire population.
