Going "Back to the Future" starts with our schools really teaching what America is all about. We should be teaching capitalism in grade school and urging parents to set up savings and investment accounts for their children. If you're like me you probably never learned about our capitalistic system and how we can use it all our lives to obtain wealth, grow it, and use it in our declining years. This is what a real education in the greatest capitalistic country in the world is all about but liberal educators don't want to mention it! They're embarrassed by our wealth and affluence and that's why, knowingly or unknowingly, they work to destroy it!

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news.

Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins medical institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since.

Even if you didn't like the substance of what Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech made for great political theater....
