I don’t care, though it seems like he didn’t. Just usual political reporting from the national media.
Either way, whatever he said didn’t result in innocent people being killed. It didn’t violate the Constitution or get us into another war of occupation. It didn’t result in a tax increase or force me to comply with some new regulation.
It’s so stupid that something so trivial in his past is a cause celebre.
It’s amazing that everyone focuses on this trivial aspect of a presidential candidate’s life. If he were found to have four mistresses and six illegitimate children but no blood on his hands, he’d still be morally superior to the typical politician running against him. Yet the illegitimate child would do him in faster than 70,000 murdered children due to illegal wars of aggression, or bombing a hospital.
By the way, I don’t mind watching politicians get crucified, but when they do it bothers me when they’re crucified on the wrong cross.
Carson is not always wrong, but neither is he always right. What plagues so many otherwise rational thinkers is the idea that they should support or oppose a person instead of the ideas they espouse. Thus, they must defend or attack a person even when he is wrong or right.
By doing so they are forced to resort to fallacies of some sort, as I once did.
