Ben Carson: I got held up once at Popeye’s — but I told the gunman to rob an employee, instead

Okay now, this guy is just plain nuts.

From rawstory.com October 8, 2015

From the article:

benCarsonHeadShotBen Carson has been bragging all week that he would charge head-on at gunmen, if he ever encountered one — and now he says he actually has been faced with that threat.

The Republican presidential candidate said Thursday morning that he had a gun drawn on him while visiting a Baltimore fried chicken restaurant, reported The Hill.

“I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeye’s organization,” Carson said on Karen Hunter’s Sirius XM Radio program.

Ben Carson is almost certainly suffering from a mental illness. It’s time we address the matter.

From dailynewsbin.com October 6, 2015

From the article:

Ben Carson said today that he’s less offended by a “body with bullet holes” than he is by gun control. Then he said President Obama should skip speaking with the families of the latest school shootings and instead speak to the families of the next school shooting. Last week he suggested gravity isn’t a real thing. He’s also claimed his own cancer was cured by magic beans. At least once a day he says something that doesn’t merely paint his views as insane, but paints him as insane – literally insane – and in a way that has nothing to do with politics or issues. So what is the nation supposed to do when a leading candidate for President appears to be suffering from an actual mental illness?

Ben Carson: I Have No Idea How Gravity Works, But Climate Change Is A Hoax

From occupydemocrats.com October 2, 2015

From the article:

Listening to presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson talk is often slightly less pleasant than listening to someone drag a nail across a chalk board. Listening to him talk about science, ironically, is much, much worse. For instance, in a conversation with a voter at a town hall event at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, Carson (a retired neurosurgeon), forever killed the phrase, “What are you — a brain surgeon?” when referencing smart people.

From the article:

In recent months, high-profile Republicans, sounding quite a bit like class warriors, have complained bitterly about the wealthy benefiting most from the recent economic recovery. Even House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), without a hint of irony, complained that recent trends point to “exacerbated inequality.” The far-right congressman added that only “the wealthy are doing really well.”

Florida House Republicans Pass Bill Allowing Adoption Agencies To Ban Gay Parents

From addictinginfo.com, April 10, 2015

From the article:

Florida is pushing its very own “license to discriminate” law, and it’s not just pizza parlors and bakeries that will be affected. The state’s Republican-dominated House of Representatives has voted to give state-funded private adoption agencies the right to refuse to let gay couples adopt children.

Recently, the state (finally) did the right thing and repealed its flagrantly unconstitutional ban on allowing gay people from adopting children. Despite a court ruling in 2005 that noted its noxiously discriminatory nature, the law symbolically remained in the state constitution before being symbolically removed from it in March 2015. Not willing to let a good deed go unpunished, House Republicans puffed up their chests and decided to strike back. If gay people were legally allowed to adopt, then they would simply make it really hard for them to do so, by giving the agencies in charge of adoption the “freedom” to not help them.
