Ben Carson CPAC Speech Leaves Door Open To Presidential Run

Ben Carson CPAC Speech Leaves Door Open To Presidential Run

“Excuse you? Who are you to assume he had help from the government? This attitude is exactly what he was addressing: the assumption that because he is black he couldn't have possibly risen up on his own. I come from a family of black MDs since 1945 who worked HARD to achieve greatness sans government assistance. This man did the same. Do not insult his legacy by making uneducated assumptions.”

“Texas has more exemplary public schools than any other state. Especially in Houston, Dallas, Austin and its surrounding suburbs. Educate yourself please. I lived in Va and Illinois and moved back home for the economy and better schools for my child.”

“Wrong. There are lots of drug addicts and illegals that work and live under bridges or in poor conditions due to reasons of their own. Anyone who has a desire to work and have a nice life can easily do so in the state with the lowest cost of living and the BEST economy.”

“At 20 weeks any health dangers should be handled at the hospital, not a clinic. I have a child, I know exactly what goes on from conception to birth. NO CLINIC should be handling a health issue with a 5 month pregnant woman. Women do have rights, that is why they can get the abortion in the first place, along with birth control and adoption options. Abortion at 26 weeks is absolutely insane.”

“Can't believe I wasted 2 minutes on this article. "Breadwinners must stay on the job for family to survive" would have been a better title; no ish wages don't drop, they have to heave-ho back to work as soon as the stitches heal! Warning to all women: don't have kids with a poor-boy, young and broke is romantic; married w/ kids and broke is depressing.”

“No he did not; he proposed to the woman, she said no and proceeded to put a baby up for adoption. Father's have so few rights, but every child has the right to a biological family.”

“Every child does not have a "right" to a biological family. If that were true, we wouldn't make adoption an option in any case where biological family existed. Every child has a right to a safe upbringing.”

“The law bans abortions after 5 months. There is no reason for a woman to carry 9 and give birth, nor shoulder financial responsibilities. 5 months is plenty time to decide.”

“Mean? Hate? 20 weeks is a kicking baby in the womb with arms, legs, a head, and a heartbeat! You are mean! Ignorance? Ignorance=not informed or educated. READ the article. They are not banning abortions. They are banning abortions past 20 weeks (it should be 12) and requiring people who get them do it with their own funds, not on public health. Tax money should not go towards individual's responsibility.”

“Ya, who cares about the woman right? Just in case her health is in danger, which is the reason why these types of abortions are performed. Maybe I should have just said ignorance won, because you are living proof.”

“It means you are a hypocrite and uneducated in general. Why do you assume that gender selection is pro-male? If it is a "woman's right", then she should be able to do whatever she feels necessary. What is the difference in abortion because you and the dad are not ready and abortion because you want a girl not a boy? It is still the killing of a living being, heartbeat and all. What's more, does ANYONE really pay attention to these laws? They are not banning abortions! They are banning abortion on PUBLIC HEALTH (tax payer dollars) and they are banning abortions past a certain time and done in a certain way. If someone wants to use insurance to abort, then they have to follow the rules. Otherwise cough up the money yourself.”

“The judicial system as it is is relatively new... Yet absentee fathers are not. 60-80 yrs ago women had few rights and did not receive help via court system and there were plenty fatherless children. And in countries where women have few rights, even today, with no courts involved, men choose to be absent. As far as the discussion to have a kid, very few people - even married couples-discuss this. But once the seed is planted a loving connection is either developed or it isn't. EXCUSES ARE FOR THE WEAK.”

ucpprod3 on Jul 9, 2013 at 19:35:37

“@Kristen, your comments constitute an excuse and yes, excuses are for the weak. Your whole position is based on a flawed expectation of a male deciding to follow the female lead of letting her be the sole determinate for the two of them becoming parents. Your assumption of females having little power 60-80 yrs ago is just plain wrong.  All of the chattel of the marriage statutes were written then or earlier. Most of the child protection laws were written then also. That is why you have laws on the books that exclude blood tests and now DNA proof of marital infidelity by women if they were married at the time of conception. That is why if a man signs a birth certificate, he can't undo this if the truth is that he was NOT the father. There is NO sense to your assertion about a discussion to have children occuring. This is at the crux of much of the problems encountered today. Men are more likely to remain in engaged to the parenting responsibilities when they are involved in the decision on when and with whom they have children. If more women understood this, the problem would be well along the way to be solved. Women feel that regardless to the reason, or method, complicity or deception involved with conception, that a man is to just accept her position as his own. Women justify to themselves that regardless the lack of religiosity in the conception, the pregnancy is somehow religiously”

“In response to Chris Beahans removed reply to my reply:So your experience on trains and in ghettos in Philly speak for Black women everywhere? I have lived on the West coast, East coast, Southwest, and midwest. I have travelled to other countries and met amazing Black women of every nationality. I am a Black woman from a family of Black women who taught me how to behave and be a respectable, productive citizen of the worl. I have encountered nasty people of all races, especially people who are poor and less educated. Some were Black women, many were not... I say you are not enlightened because you have allowed negative media portrayals and stereotypes to affect your already biased views. There are plenty of positive Black female figures the media chooses to ignore, and if you wanted to find positive Black women in your own community I'm sure you could but you are probably to stuck in you mindset. I hope one day your mind can be opened.”
