That the pyramids were built to store grain or that Carson believes it?

I like this one even better...

Trump is an embarassment.

Over on your side, the primaries are dominated by a woman who (1) claimed she was under sniper attack at an airport, and (2) claimed that her husband didn't cheat on her, but rather was the innocent victim of a GOP conspiracy. In second place, we have a card-carrying socialist, who thinks we should be like Denmark. Denmark is a tiny country that is overwhelmingly white, and they don't like to let anyone else in because they know they can't afford it. Other than that, it's exactly like America.

Back it up Jim. The guy who you support thinks that the pyramids were built to hold grain. That is about as delusional as you can get. Oh wait... Is he a creationist who believes the bible is the final word on everything ?

Does he still believe in Santa Claus ?

I kind of switched to Rubio when Carson said he didn't think we should have invaded Afghanistan after 9/11. Carson says too many strange things for me to be comfortable with. That said, if he won the primary, I'd happily vote for him over anyone on the other side.

"That is about as delusional as you can get."

Is it? Do we know for a certainty that the pramids, in addition to holding mummies, weren't also built to hold grain? The guy who built them, isn't around to ask. So how certain are we that Carson is wrong? Look, I agree it's strange.

How is that nearly as delusional as Hilary saying she came under sniper attack at an airport, when the video shows no such thing ever happened?

I'll take a guy who understands elementary school arithmetic (which no one who subscribes to liberal economics has any grasp of), but is off base about the storage intentions of those who built the pyramids.

I'll tell you what. In Chicago, the federal courts have recently ruled that schools cannot tell boys to shower in the boys' locker room, and girls to shower in the girls' locker room. That's discriminatory to kids who choose not to define themselves that way.

If that's "progress", well, you can keep it. I don't want to go back to the Stone Ages, but a return to the old fashioned common sense and family values of the 1950s, would be fine by me.

Just in case you missed it, here it is again. From the New York Times, mind you...

Conservatives give more than liberals, and the reason is religion.

Spence, studies aside...you really think that in this country at this time, religion makes people less charitable? Do you genuinely believe that atheism leads to greater generosity, than judeo-christian principles?

In all seriousness, that post of yours actually made me sad. I didn't know that you were that unable to think rationally when it comes to politics.

Paging sea dangles. Come in sea dangles. Time for a taliban retort


Umm there are these things called hiloglyphics. They depict a story and they are all over the insides of the pyramids. People have actually read them and they tell the story of the Pharos and which ones were buried there. And oh my gosh!!! This happened before Adam and Eve. Is that why you believe this ?

OK, you got me and Carson there. As I said earlier, it's a weird thing to say.

"Is that why you believe this ?"

I don't know what it is you think I believe here. But whatever it is you think I believe, you are most likely mistaken.

As weird a thing as it is to believe that...it's not nearly as crazy as Hilary's claims of sniper fire, for which we have video evidence to show that she absolutely lied through her teeth.

Carson isn't lying, he's just most likely wrong. Has he ever said why he believes this?

He's probably saying this as a vieled (did I spell that right?) outreach to the American taliban who view the bible as gospel truth and make every one of life's decisions based on it. While this might be a wonderful approach to the head of a household it is a nightmare as head of state who has to deal constantly with other nationalities who are non believers.

The current Repub. party has bc the party of "crazy birds" or whatever McCain called them.

His admiting he tried to kill someone, his stabbing someone, his attacking his mother w/a hammer, throwing a rock at someone's face, punching someone w/his fist around a lock won't make a bit of a difference to Repub. They will say it makes him strong.

If he wants to ramp up his fund raising, he needs to start throwing more insults around.

OK, so every single Republican in the country, is gauged by the dumbest, meanest things that the current top 2 candidates say?

The top 2 on the other side are Hilary and Bernie. You want to be associated with the most outlandish things those 2 have said? You want to be held accountable for the fact that Hilary said that Bill didn't cheat on her, but he was being framed by the Republicans?

I think the 'Twilight Zone' theme could be the official song for the top 2 on both sides.

On the GOP side, it's unlikely that either Trump or Carson will be the nominee. Iowa is a funny state, sometimes fringe candidates do well there, and quickly fade away immediately after. I believe Rick Perry and Rick Santorum were the 2 previous winners in Iowa. Iowa is an early state, and carries a lot of weight early on.

You are right, it's embarassing to me that these 2 guys are in front. If I were a Democrat, I would be similarly ashamed of the top 2 on that side. SImilarly, Hilary can tell one lie after another, blame every scandal on a right wing conspiracy, and the voters don't hold her accountable (see every post by Spence in the Benghazi thread for examples of what I am referring to).

It's not unique to the GOP. But it's deranged, and I don't like it any more than you do.

Carson and Trump need to step aside and let the adults talk.

Come on fellas, U did not C the chickens picking on the ground around them tombs.....had to B grain silos........LMAO.....

That is almost as bad as your president sitting in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years saying he never heard Wright put down the United States.....

And what about this nut case Nancy Pelosi has drawn conservative scorn for her salacious lie about conservatives, this time accusing Americans protesting ObamaCare of wearing “swastika armbands”:....

Maybe Carson can go feed the chickens...lol...

Well isn't that what do do constantly? You find some liberal that did something you don't like and start a thread about the damn liberals.

Reagan would have problem these days. He incr. taxes. Nixon started the EPA. A hero like McCain gets made fun off and Trumps popularity goes up. Both sides have crazies but the Repubs. Have gotten way worse.

It has become like that fake wrestling stuff. You can't make it up. I find it sad that Jim is on here speaking as a republican as I can assure you they are not all towing the line. His Salem witch trials style of debate only bolsters the opinion of those who may think otherwise. To describe it as a dead horse would be generous.

Turn it around--would it be a nightmare to have a President who is a non-believer constantly having to deal with other nationalities who are believers--or as an American having to deal with other nationalities?

May sound like a silly question, but how would Carson's belief in the pyramids as graineries theory debilitate his ability to be POTUS? Did it hurt his ability as a neurosurgeon? How did past President's who were believers, even those considered "great," manage the task without creating nightmares because of their belief?

Why did you consider a bigot someone who would not support a Muslim being President? Why would a believer such as a Muslim who believes not only in a supernatural being, and needs, what you belittle, that little book to tell him how to live, and who believes in a governing system that is in total contradiction to your belief in what a government is allowed to do--why would such a believer not be a nightmare? You prefer that to one who would follow the Constitution, which would not let his peculiar beliefs about pyramids or any other thing to affect his duties as President? Are you a bigot?

There have been effective Presidents, even great ones, who have had strange ideosyncracies.

Would you refuse his services as a neurosurgeon in an emergency because of what he believes about pyramids?

I would much rather have someone at the helm of this country who had both eyes on the road and not both in the clouds.

As for operating on my brain, I would review his track record... If he had good success with many patients, then sure.. Crack my skull and work your magic.

His track record is superior . . . to say the least. And it includes success with a lot more patients than most. And it has required of him to have both eyes on the road.

Read this short article then decide whether he keeps his eyes on the road, and whether he can handle both the road and various clouds of his preference, and whether the clouds interfere with his ability to also keep both eyes on the road:

http://www.fastcompany.com/33611/brain-surgery

It gives a brief insight, as well, in how he handles pressure, planning, leadership, team cooperation, various problems. And also gives insight into his skill (a science based skill by-the-way), ability to communicate, essential need to be realistic (reality rather than clouds) in surgery, and his calm demeanor which infuses confidence in those around him in his ability creating the calm necessary for a successful outcome.

All the above would be qualities which would lead to a successful President, not a nightmare. Even if he has strange notions about pyramids.

I'll take an honest believer over a calculating liar any day....I find that it doesn't take much brains to lie....just practice..if you lie enough and get away with it..you end up thinking you're really smart...it doesn't really make you smart.....as we've seen


I was curious about this although on the totem pole of things I care about regarding the intelligence, character and honesty of a candidate it's right at the bottom(read Carson's bio if you think he's an idiot), I'd say that it seems the construction and purpose of the pyramids is still quite a mystery about which there are many theories despite all of our technology and wisdom...I don't care how they were made or for what purpose they were constructed

the grain storage theory was first proposed by Gregory of Tours (540-594) who thought that Pyramids were granaries built by the biblical Joseph in which he kept the harvest of the fat years.

that some here are so animated and disturbed by this quote just demonstrates how sad the situation is for the fans of the remaining leftist candidates who represent both a calculating liar and an honest believer(in a system of governance which is deeply un-American)
