THIS IS ONE OF THOSE "MUST SEE" VIDEOS, IRRESPECTIVE OF YOUR POLITICAL PERSUASSION.
Famed Baltimore neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carsonaddressed the National Prayer Breakfast on last Thursday morning on healthcare. Dr. Carson, an African American, spoke powerfully, beginning with comments on personal responsibility and our current social condition, and then discussing Obamacare and government involvement in healthcare
He spoke unabashedly of his disdain for political correctness, calling it a “dangerous” and “horrible thing” that has led to stifled conversations and a lack of actual political debate in this time.
Dr. Carson goes on to discuss the current state of our education system and how it is failing our society and our children. Dr. Carson, a black man, likens the inadequacies of our current education system to a form of slavery.
He also talked about the moral decay of American, and cautioned of a Rome-like fate, and — in front of Mr. Obama, who sat just feet from the podium — confronted the issue of America’s debt and current fiscal policy.
President Obama sat just a few feet away as Dr. Carson encouraged a program where newborn babies are given health savings account as an alternative to Obamacare.
I have to give the President some credit, he tried to keep smiling as long as he could as the words stung, bit by bit.
