.....AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR DISQUALIFIED CANDIDATES



Ben Carson has joined the ranks of the disqualified.  This retired neurosurgeon (He actually was a great surgeon, having been the first to (successfully) separate twins conjoined at the head.), turned politician and right wing tea-bagger, can not answer a simple question on Meet the Press yesterday as to whether the bible has authority over the Constitution.  His answer boggles the mind of anyone who actually has a basic understanding of the Constitution.

The President's oath of office (as specified in the Constitution) requires that the President "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. . . "  That includes the First Amendment.  So you don't feel left out, Dr. Carson, I call you out as an imbecile, idiot and moron.

Apparently the Professor, while mildly impressed with Dr. Carson's ability to save the lives of twin fetuses conjoined at the head, is only really gung-ho about supporting candidates who take donations from Planned Parenthood, who will make sure only the "head and legs are crushed", in order to preserve the parts that can fetch some money.

Im trying to imagine the average LSAT at any law school that would employ the "Professor". As a matter of fact, because he is probably too old to have taken the LSAT, Professor, can you state your IQ before we engage you any further? Given your smarmy delight in the "tea bag" pun (get it? get it? lol, like Tea Party but it has to do with balls!), Im guessing about 105.

Stay on subject 9:33. I do not address my objection to any of those I have labeled as moron, idiot or imbecile on any issue other than their inability to understand or put the Constitution above their religious beliefs. That is under the 1st and 14th Amendments to honor the beliefs of others as opposed to making a religiously based value judgment on the supremacy of the constitution, or the Constitutional rights of others. No matter which side you may take in the issues you attempt to get me to engage, it still comes down to the Constitution. So I will not engage with you.

In Dr. Carson's case, he fails to understand that the supreme law of the land is the Constitution, and the Bible, the Koran, the Torah or Tanach or any other religious based law has any place in our Constitution or our laws. Therefore the answer is simple. The Bible does not have authority over the Constitution. Easy question. Anyone who can not answer that is disqualified from being President.

As far as your personal attacks, believe what you will, it matters not to me.

What about the Hialeah municipal code?

Had dinner at THE REN (a venue) and Miguelito was on his game with an appetizer of braised bison cheeks with a plum/cherry reduction, a small angel hair pasta dish with a beautiful creamy Uni sauce and tiny king crab "meat" balls was a second dish, and then a simple florida lobster (because it was just mini season) done three ways- a tail done ceviche style in key lime and mango juice, a grilled tail with a grilled poblano pepper, and a deep fried tail stuffed with local caught pompano cooked over night sous vide. The last tail was the best by far although my GF loved the grilled tail, but she is Mexican so she loves spice.

Dessert was a Key Lime creme fresche topping on a chocolate-coconut candied ball.

How is this not the best eats in the city?

9:33. Do you have a response to the professors point regarding the medical genius yet political idiot Carson's lack of fundamental understanding of the U.S Constitution and the oath he aspires to take?

If I am a Republican I have to support any idiot who is also a Republican? Am I allowed to differentiate between Republican idiots and Republican scholars? Is this like football where I am expected to root for my team no matter how mediocre or banal?

Good to see that Ren has resolved those pesky problems it had with the Dade Health Department recently. Getting food poisoning is not anybody's idea of a good time.

So he's a good neuro, that means nothing in terms of leading a nation. I knew a surgeon very well, smartest man you would ever meet, would not have wanted him to be my President, my auto mechanic or anything else for that matter.

What is it with The Ren (a venue) BS? Much to my surprise, it actually exists - despite its weird name. It's in WAY west Kendall in a little strip mall. Does a defense lawyer own it or something? The constant posts are bizarre.

4:39, You want me to respond to some inarticulate answer given by some GOP candidate polling around 3%?

Versus Bill Clinton's demonstrated great respect for the Constitution? Or Obama's Justice Department's great respect for Constitutional rights?

See? Anyone with a 105 IQ can engage in the kind of Coke!/Pepsi! partisan hackery that the "Professor" engages in, non-fucking-stop. Jon Stewart made a career of it. Simply isolate a 30 second soundbite of your ideological enemy speaking from the cuff and inarticulately, use it to paint an entire party, distort their views to the point of ridiculousness -- and then UNLOAD name-calling and ridicule and smarm.

Great job, great effort.

No wonder people like the Trump clown show. People like Stewart and O'Reilly and the Professor treat this whole thing like a circus. Might as well have some clowns.

4:30 - I guess he really doesn't want to discuss the point of the post. Don't bother any more. Leave him be in his miserable little world.
