thinking logically, outcomes, problem solving, political mesmerizing, intimidation, divisionism

And so the presentation by Dr. Ben Carson, renowned pediatric brain surgeon from Johns Hopkins Hospital, has gone VIRAL according to the media.  For those who have not yet heard his presentation I share this link: 


Trust me, you don't want to miss his message.

So many folks in this great country stand yearning to push back on diabolical strategies of divisionism, the steady focused weakening of the education system, as well as the family unit, legal system, health care system, et al.…slowly, bit by bit severely endangering our whole  economic system and promoting, by hook and crook, the weakening of our protective military system.

And then like perfect magic, we hear the words of a brilliant and honorable man, a quiet man, a humble man, who stands up as the honored guest at the Prayer Breakfast Meeting and shares a very basic, humble, but most enlightening message…a message for the need to think LOGICALLY when thinking at all!!!  Of course…we are use to being bombarded with so many words attached to the political focus..change, fundamental, redistribution as well as the subtle but sure focus on  divide,divide,divide (and conquer).  But LOGIC…ahhh. Now that is a word with meaning we can ALL hang on to and one that may fill the emptiness we are feeling, help to pull us up into the light.

LOGIC =  The study of the principles of reasoning, especially of the structure of propositions as distinguished from their content and of method and validity in deductive reasoning.....

LOGIC =  A system of reasoning: ( Aristotle's logic )

What a thought… we might just need that PARTY OF LOGIC he mentioned  and with lots and lots of logical thinkers as members! So simplistic, so on the mark.

There is no doubt about the fact that Dr. Carson has long been one of my greatest heroes, not just because he is a brilliant surgeon who has saved the lives of so many children, but because he is a man of honor, integrity, principles, faith, and one who reaches out to help others attain high standards in all walks of life..a person who solves desperate problems.  The exciting thing about all of this is that perhaps he has now awakened more of those who have been dozing at the wheel, if you will.  For those who may feel intimidated by the strength of his words, it would probably not do well to try to marginalize him. In his own very soft spoken manner, he enlightened the entire room of darkness with the simple references to LOGIC ... thinking logically in efforts to solve what one might believe to be insurmountable problems. 

The message at the end of his presentation.. pointing to the bald eagle’s need to use BOTH wings..left and right to successfully fly…such a simple but very profound message to the current leadership sitting at the table. 

Run Dr. Carson, Run if they try to pull you into any political stance.  Your message and obviously outstanding method of sharing it are so very important at this specific time in our history. Folks need to be given an opportunity rethink the current political agendas vs the logical outcomes.  With your clear message of logical thinking being brought into the picture, big time, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel after all.  An immediate plus..the little angels who feel intimidated won’t be able to use the “race card”... another divisionist ploy.

Just sharing the thoughts of a retired worker bee!

Lorna - thank you for your blog on this. I know most folks are going at it on the Obama thread - let them at it. The last few days we have seen a speech by the President, a response by Rubio, and the comments by Dr. Carson. The contrasts are amazing - and their roles and experiences in life really can explain much. We have the President, who really came out of nowhwere, i.e, I have heard no college classmates comment on him, or even know he attended school with them. He did work in a law firm, but again, very few if any comments about his skill or ability and he did not progress as attorneys should - and moved to community organization, pitting one group against "the man". The rest is history. His comments and philosophy are clear, he looks for a winner and a loser, if he cannot find one, he will create a winner and a loser. Marco Rubio, although with a different political stance, has a similar background to the President - his comments are just as compative as the opposition. Here comes Dr. Carson, a man of amazing skill and intelligence, a true story of the best in America. People look to him for help - not because he is black or his religion, but because he is the best in his profession. His comments reflect his medical background, yelling, acting ignorantly, or humiliating people will not help his patients. It takes skill, planning and care to accomplish what he does. My guess is he sees the problems and cannot wait any longer to speak.

Rare Maryland Independent...thank you for your response. Dr. Carson is a man of honor, foresight, integrity and brilliance. We sure could use more of his input at all levels of our government.... local, state and national and by all means, international!
