And, do you have links to all the statements that you have made? I have noticed that very little research is done when one is simply looking to be negative about a candidate. I already posted on the pyramids previously, it was his theory and there are other theories but no one can say for sure. So, you need to back up each statement in order that your thread isn't like so many of the other "thread fail".

Tired of the one liners attacking the candidates. Seriously, try coming up with something that is challenging.

You do know that Secretary Clinton was a US Senator for six years and Secretary of State for four, right?

I guess it must be something they develop once they're on the job, huh?

Some things we can say for sure. Such as:
  • The pyramids would be an idiotic design for grain storage.
  • The ancient Egyptians weren't idiots.

The Joseph idea was the wild-ass guess of a medieval monk - Saint Gregory of Tours - who never saw a pyramid in his life.

Regardless of your generalization about "every doctor", Dr. Carson has demonstrated his ignorance repeatedly over the course of his campaign. He thinks the pyramids were grain silos. He thinks that "scientists" claim that the pyramids were built by aliens. He thinks that none of the founding fathers held elective office. He doesn't know the difference between the debt ceiling and the debt. He doesn't know the difference between sexual orientation and sexual behavior. He doesn't know that West Point doesn't even offer scholarships. He doesn't know the percentage of Medicare payments that are fraudulent (but he makes up a number). Etc., etc., etc. He doesn't seem to know anything about anything except brain surgery.

The point is that Carson has made himself a laughingstock with his many, many ridiculous statements since he entered the race. I would say he should get out before he completely destroys his reputation, but it's already too late for that. When people think of Ben Carson in the future it won't be for his distinguished career as a surgeon but for the utterly stupid things he has said. Social media is just reflecting that.

Liars seem to make their way into the white house. I don't find this a big deal personally. Carson has so much more going for him than Hillary anyway. She is one big fabrication. And tell me please, why the media keeps ignoring her growing nose?

This reads "ify" to me. During this time period, I am betting Carson could easily have scored a full scholarship and just needed to apply to get it. Admissions? If you have the right person walking you through, you don't have to jump through the hoops. I didn't see Carson himself saying this didn't happen. Of course, no one other than me knows that schools were trying hard to fill racial quotas during those times and Carson would have been a MAJOR score.

No offense, but having grown up and worked around other blacks, I was always glad not to be black. It is just a fact that some people cannot just leave race alone. Anyone that knows anything about racism knows exactly what is happening by the media picking apart 40 to 50 years old stories that no one can validate.

With all the trash on Hillary, she certainly shouldn't be throwing stones and Jeb, seriously, the man seems "slow" and without the establishment pushing him, there would be no movement at all.

No matter what a black person accomplishes, all some can see is the color of their skin and I do believe that much of what this digging is has to do with the color of the skin. Sad.

So, as a Republican I won't back him. Hopefully. he will fade from view. Credibility is everything.

I guess that's why we have primaries.....It's all too bad. I was a big supporter.
Seriously? One story from a liberal media whorehouse and you are out? Doesn't take much does it? No wonder the GOP keeps losing. Think for one minute about the state of the country if the media and the liberals were sincerely so outraged over lies....The liberal left has lowered the bar so low, cant get any lower. Lies don't matter anymore. I don't think for one second you are a republican......
