Immigration: Steerage Class Dreams

A poignant account of one family's arrival in the land of opportunity, this story hits a nerve. The immigrants and their stoically borne struggles of several generations ago contrast sharply with the sense of entitlement that is so pervasive in our present culture.

A cut above

Dr. Carson is not a political insider. He's never been part of that elite group that seems to always provide the default candidate list for presidential elections.  The people of this nation should finally breathe a sigh of wondrous relief and think on the amazing possibilities in front of us, should we actually get a president who is truly representative of we the people.

Hollow and laughable threats

Many of us have fond memories of long car trips taken as children. Imagine a station wagon filled with five kids, a mother at the wheel and a dad trying to sleep on the passenger side. Kid's are roughhousing and mom is threatening. Kids are weighing the force behind her threats, pushing their luck to the limits. Then their father wakes up.

Dr. Ben Carson- The Attacks Begin

 

 

 

Now that the November Elections are finished, political discussions are turning to 2016 and the Presidential campaign. Conventional wisdom has Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, NY Senator and Secretary of State as the front runner for the Democratic Party’s nomination. The Republican field is wide open, with a half-dozen current or former State Governors, several current members of the US Congress, and a few currently in the private sector being mentioned as possible candidates.

The good news for Conservatives is that their potential candidates are numerous and well qualified. (The Democrats have to wonder where the next group of candidates is going to come from in view of the debacle they faced on November 4.) During the next year the field will take shape and we will see who will emerge as the front runner (or front runners). Pundits are already speculating about the impact the mid-term elections had on several possible candidates’ chances of becoming the GOP nominee.

An ongoing discussion

The media once jumped on Ben Carson for voicing his concerns about assault weapon ownership in our inner cities. Many Second Amendment enthusiasts immediately turned off their ears, missing an interesting evolution of Dr. Carson's stance.

The kitchen clamor

This happy little group met recently to discuss Dr. Carson, to plan strategies for upcoming events and to generally look ahead to examine other ways that their efforts- coupled with a growing number of others hopefully(!)- could further the cause of a Carson presidential run. This initial coming-together could serve as a prototype for future gatherings elsewhere: fun ways to connect with folks of like mind.

How come it's okay now?

Most of us who have reached the "grandparent" stage are unsettled by the fact that younger people today haven't a clue what life in these United States was like just a few years ago: they're utterly unaware that radical changes in quality of life   have occurred. David McCombs takes a stroll down memory lane, hoping perhaps to awaken the younger set to things that they are going to have to take responsibility for, or lose everything.
