Ben Carson, admirable man with a mistaken philosophy

......Yet black Americans know better than to believe those traits are enough to guarantee success. History taught us better. Just look back over the last decade and a half. In 2000, according to the U.S. census, less than a quarter of black Americans -- 22.5%-- lived in poverty. By 2010, that number had risen to 27.4%. Was there a sudden outbreak of indolence among black folk over that period? Or were there outside forces that conspired to knock them back down the economic ladder? As long as the Republican Party refuses to acknowledge that, it will have little to offer workers of color -- and declining appeal to younger whites. They, too, understand the limits of self-reliance.

To be helpful to the GOP, Carson would have to remind them of the caprice of capitalism and the generational reach of racism's barriers. Instead, he sounds like the standard-issue Ayn Rand acolyte, no different from Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan. He opposes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and supports a flat tax. For good measure, he's also a religious conservative who disputes evolution.

Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local governments.

The annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117. The fiscal impact per household varies considerably because the greatest share of the burden falls on state and local taxpayers whose burden depends on the size of the illegal alien population in that locality

Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion. Nearly all of those costs are absorbed by state and local governments.

At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens.

Most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming tax credits resulting in payments from the U.S. Treasury.

Yes I did know that. I don't understand how my asking AL a question regarding Sloopy has any impact on you or anyone else on this thread. As a result, I do not consider it a "game". It was really just a joke specifically to AL as I have not seen Sloopy in a while. No scheme or plot behind it Jax.
"I do not consider it a "game". It was really just a joke"

LOL! Big difference. Eh?

Despite my opposition to most of what this man claims to believe I have remained respectful and I have not questioned the honor of his military service.
You jumped in and said that not only was he a coward who had never served, but he had avoided the draft by claiming to be homosexual even though he wasn't.
I don't need to discredit you.
You did that yourself.
Still using this man to whine.

If he needs to say something, please let him do so.

In your mind, you are nothing but polite and caring.

Don't think so---let the man talk, stop using him to defend your ownself.

Coward and never served---making up things now to serve YOUR purpose.

“Peace”
