I see what you are saying. So, who is the most qualifying among Republicans in your opinion?

Jon Hunstman. Drinking Beverage

RE: Ben Carson's unusual theory about pyramids
I don't even understand why Carson felt like he had to make up that story about the pyramids in 1998. What was he even trying to accomplish with that?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Sales of his books and lecture engagements on the Christian speaking circuit. He's made a nice little side business out of those.

Bill Maher explains it - starts at about the 2 minute mark of New Rules.

And he just repeated his theory to reporters a few days ago. You'd think that in the 17 years since his first statement on the pyramids he might get a little curious and maybe check up on some of the facts of the pyramids, like that the Egyptians could write and they wrote all over the inside of the pyramid what they were for. But no, he didn't take any time to do that, he just continued on being a total ignoramus. It seems to be a pattern with this guy.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The guy is nuts and very likely dangerous with this demonstrable level of ignorance.

I don't like the word "unusual". Unfortunately delusional people are in great supply. A new delusional spin maybe, but remember this guy also denies evolution and believes in magic babies.

He was the only candidate I truly enjoyed on the party line last time, shamefully of course he was the only one who didn't get a 15 minutes of rising to the top of the polls. He wasn't sporadic or crazy enough.

It needs regulation to help prevent those wild fluctuations, but tying everything to gold removes several tools for dealing with problems when they come up. A gold standard doesn't prevent those problems, and it slows growth.

Tying money supplies to piles of shiny rocks is a medieval idiocy we have no need to go back to.

Just ask these economists.
