February 10th – Got 27 minutes? Watch the video below, it’s worth every second. Dr. Benjamin Carson was born into poverty in Detroit in 1951. His single mother with only a third-grade education worked 3 jobs, never labeled herself a victim, did not allow excuses from her sons and forced young Ben to read 2 books/week. Dr. Carson is now the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. With President Obama in attendance, Dr. Carson spoke last week at the WH prayer breakfast. He took on the PC police, the dumbing down of America and the federal debt. The Doctor spoke on how Jesus was his role model, the fairness of the flat tax and the need for health savings accounts. He ended with the tale of the American flag still flying high after the attack on Fort McHenry. It’s a shame Dr. Carson isn’t the first black president. There would be no trillion-dollar deficits, no class warfare and no Obamacare. President Obama only clapped once, politely at the end. O didn’t much appreciate getting his clock cleaned by a much better man. P
