    It's pretty concerning when there are entire paragraphs that are word for word from another source.

    It began by the Right as soon as Barack Obama got re-elected and they figured Hillary Clinton would be the presumptive Democrat nominee.

    This is just what both sides do. Throw it against the wall and see what sticks.

    I remember Sean Hannity and a lot of the GOP were going after Hillary Clinton in order to make her appear more unfavorable back before she had even stated she would be running in the 2008 Presidential election. Sean even started the "Stop Hillary Express". He was so busy trying to stop the Hillary Express that the Obama Express ran right over him. :laugh: HE tried to change the name but it was too late. The Obama Express ran right up Pennsylvania Avenue and stopped at the White House.

    Ben Carson IS 'right', don't you think? A black man who is 'right of center' in his politics.

    He says that he changed his party affiliation from Independent to Republican so yes, I would categorize him as right.


    There are lots of black men who are right of center in their politics. He's waaaaaaaaaaay right.

    But you weren't talking about the POTUS and his politics. You were talking about Ben Carson.

    When it comes to plagiarism I have always been taught through college and seminary that intent doesn't change anything concerning the validity of the charge. If you copied entire paragraphs of another project, failed to properly attribute or tried to pass off as your own work, all of your work is thrown out with you not very far behind.

    Agreed. It either shows that he is dishonest or stupid.
