Just watched Spkr's Ryan and McConnell announce they are on board the Trump train.

I thought I saw Spkr Ryan experience a premature ejaculation when he said he was making people's lives better with a better healthcare plan

Bannon has hidden the pea and Republicans in all their arrogance think they know where it is

Instead of "dumb" and "dumber", Trump's cabinet can be described as "odious and odiouser" - between Sessions and Pruitt. But then, there are DeVos and Carson...

Unqualified and more unqualified is the way I see it.

I think I've mentioned before that this is going to backfire in a way that makes "Helluva job, Brownie" seem like small potatoes.

Carson at HUD? Why? Is he bored with his life of leisure? Don't I recall that he was promised a position in Trump's government for his support? And that it was illegal at the time for him to do this?

Perhaps he'll turn some empty buildings into grain storage units.

Just the pyramidal ones.

Dr Carson (in my opinion) was the singularly the most unqualified Republican presidential candidate in the last cycle. He had no grasp of any issue except his belief God would guide him. Being born into poverty does not make one an expert on it nor does being a conservative allow for pragmatic solutions to urban problems.

Carsons Pyramid Scheme



In spite of the somewhat satirical source, it provides some interesting insight that demonstrates that his delusional state is nothing new, and can be shown almost 20 years ago to include his pyramid scheme. His explanation of it is even more disturbing, particularly since at that time he was a practicing neurosurgeon. It must have made for some "interesting" rolleyes discussions in the multi-hour OR sessions, where the surgeon is the unquestioned captain of the ship.

Carsons Pyramid Scheme

Quote:
The list of Weird s*** Ben Carson Thinks grew by one item this week, as BuzzFeed dug up some old video of Ben Carson sharing his Personal Theory of the Pyramids at a university commencement speech in 1998. This is important for two reasons: 1) It demonstrates that Ben Carson has long believed some pretty weird s***, and 2) It moves back by at least 17 years our earliest evidence for the “Ben Carson Has a Broken Brain” hypothesis.

Why would Dr. Ben Carson explain his Theory of the Pyramids during a commencement address for Andrews University, a Seventh-Day Adventist college where biblical literalism is just as much a part of the curriculum as it would be at Bob Jones or Liberty U? Why wouldn’t he?
