You can't make this shit up......


In a talk to his new employees at HUD, Carson outdid himself. From the San Francisco Chron:

It's been less than a week since Ben Carson was sworn in as the secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, but he's already making headlines.
Speaking to HUD employees Monday, Carson referred to slaves as immigrants who dreamed of better lives for their children in America.
"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," Carson said. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land."
Slaves were really immigrants. Who would have thought......

  8. What the hell was he talking about?!. I think he might be under the effects of some kind of anesthesia.

    Every day brings us more and more craziness.

  9. Before he dropped out of the running, this guy was the favorite of one of my neighbors, who told me "it will just depend on whether the people want another Lincoln." Ye-gods!

  10. The sheer stupid incompetence might be what brings this whole edifice down. It's like watching a Mythbuster's water heater explosion. So unpredictable, the mounting pressure, the odd noises, the suspicious bulge... then more waiting.

    One day, though. One day.

    BOOM!

  11. What a freaking MORON...
    Our country is being run by a circus troupe.
    I saw the video and could not believe that he actually said that. EVERY DAY there is new piece of lunacy from these people.

  13. I know people who supported Carson for president. Maybe it's my own fantasy, but I always thought some of them were throwing in my face: I am not a racist . . . see, I'm supporting a black man.
