A political forum and 'current events'.  what his mother did with him 50 or 60 years ago is far from being a "current event", so it wasn't posted as a current event  But the topic is about the power of books, not politics it became both political and racist when the words "DON'T BLAME" and "DON'T MAKE EXCUSES" were added. Any other discussion is off topic to the current thread. Just as you have been off topic most of the time in this thread.

 

I will have a nice non-political night as I have been. Great.

Your first sentence make no sense at all, must have a word or two missing. If you are going to continue to try and make this thread about other posters ..................... have a nice night.


Do you have anything to say about the topic title? Sure, but there is more to a topic than it's title. You might note that it is non-political. If it weren't for the phrases  "DON'T BLAME" and "DON'T MAKE EXCUSES", you would be right but about a young illiterate mother who empowered her two sons to succeed through the power of learning from books and no one has spoken badly of that. 

 

You have mentioned  nothing in the entire thread about the topic Seriously, you must not have read very thoroughly but instead made it about politics this is a political forum, it is about politics, and sometimes racism. along with every other liberal who has posted in it. there ya' go attacking liberals again.  There is more to life besides politics then what are you doing here?.

 

Have a nice night.

Why do you keep arguing a point that everyone agrees with? NO one has posted against early and continued reading for children, or continued reading for adults.

 

Now, do you believe the ridiculous points of Carson's that were listed?

And what do you believe falsities?  Any opinion that is contrary to yours?  So can you say that you have an open mind to respect that others have an opinion of their own?

 

Another thing I have noted is that you and some others have not said a word about the topic, 'the Power of Books'.  Instead they have been mostly along the lines of political partisanism. (sic)

The point is that Dr. Carson's success can be attributed to his early reading. As such, early reading is recommended to other parents. All the rest is about some posters need to interject racism and for their agent to look for a fight.

 

Let it go - we agree, early reading is a good start to a successful life - for anyone.


But do you believe the list of ridiculous points that Ben Carson made?


I believe that learning to read at a young age helped Dr. Carson to break out of the cycle of poverty - that is the issue. Do you agree?


No one has made an "issue" out of Carson raising himself out of poverty.


Well, it is the topic.

The education you got, even the education I got, is completely insufficient for what today’s students need. 


To the contrary it dealt on the age-old basics of knowledge.  Those basics are the fundamentals and building blocks of today's world.  In many ways we didn't have packages of learning, but had to construct our own.  Today learning is handed to students on a silver platter.

 

I never had any problem with the education I received  with my military assignments in a weather related field nor when became involved in computerized data systems.  Many of the younger people did.

 

I do gather that you have something to do about gaining knowledge from books.  I do gather from negative comments from some that most objections to the thread is based on partisan thinking.
