  1. Truly appalling comments of ignorant people unfit to govern our diverse country. A national embarrassment!

  2. I don’t agree with most of what Carson says or stands for – don’t think he’s fit for presidency – but I think this is actually a misreading of the analogy he’s using on the face of it.

    Analogy :
    ” A similarity in some respects between things that are otherwise dissimilar” or “a form of reasoning in which one thing is inferred to be similar to another thing in a certain respect”.

    The rabid dog he is referring to are the dangerous individuals / terrorists, what have you, not all refugees.

    I or you might disagree with the level of vetting he’s proposing – moreover the hysteria and panic being sewn mostly by Republicans – but to but to be intellectually honest I don’t think he’s actually positing all refugees as rabid dogs here. That’s not an accurate reading.
    Kind of an inflammatory analogy to come up with though, to be sure.

      • Huh ? No logical argument or cogent points presented so, I guess, just chalk one up for “disagree”. Whatever.

        • The ball is in your court.
          You say “wrong”, but you don’t say *what’s* wrong.
          I made many points and provided an elaborated argument, yet you provide zero rebuttal of your own.
          “Wrong” is not an argument.

          And now you say prove it . . . prove . . . *what* ?
          I say to you . . . provide a rebuttal that makes some attempt to “prove” your assessment of “wrong” – whatever it is that you think is wrong.

          You need to come up with a little effort, otherwise it just comes across as a simple emotional response.
