The Guardian finds it weird that Ben Carsonâs house (that he paid for through his honest efforts) contains a room in the basement, next to the pool table, where all of the awards and citations heâs received (by virtue of his God-given skill combined with honest effort) are displayed.
My! Thatâs a lot of awards!
I wonder if they find it equally weird and egotistical that people like Michael Jordan have a trophy room in his home,
Or that BeyoncÃ© and Jay Z might have a room in one of their many homes where they display all their Grammys.
Or that Oprah - again, in one of her many homes - might have a display case of all her Emmys and presidential medals.
And I wonder if the Guardian finds it the least bit weird that when Barack Hussein Obama decided to run for president that his home (paid for by the executive job his wife got due to his community organizing connections and subsequent election to the U.S Senate, combined with a little help from a felon friend) contained virtually no awards, citations or mentions for anything. At all.
Which might lead you to the conclusion that of the two, one of them is a self-made man and the other Won is a made-man.
Butt I guess now they are about even in the medal, citation, and awards department now. Although Dr. Carson still earned through his honest efforts and Barry, well, you knowâ¦-----------

Yes, I think it's weird....very weird...like the pyramid thing.
The Guardian is one of the most bizarre publications on the face of the earth and has the most bizarre readers. I simply can’t take it seriously anymore.
The Guardian is so far left that it would make the NYT look like Free Republic by comparison.
That Carson's "trophies" are in the basement and not the living room tells me that his "trophy room" is similiar to an "I love me" wall.
Concerning his painting with him and Jesus. I think that is cultural. At least in the South, it is very common to see a picture in a Black person's house where Jesus is photo-shopped into a picture with a family member or the family.
Like most opposition investigation by the press, it is much to do about nothing.
Everyone is entitled to an “I love me” wall. Heck, you get presented with all those certificates of accomplishment and you have to put the somewhere.
A lot of military members have an “I love me” wall in their home.
