You apparently don't understand what plagiarizing is then...
1. To use and pass off (the ideas or writings of another) as one's own.

if you don't cite the source, then you lead people to believe that you are the author.

and that is plagiarizing.

When discussing veterans and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, President Obama said, "As this time of war draws to a close, a new generation of heroes returns to civilian life. We’ll keep slashing that backlog so our veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned, and our wounded warriors receive the health care – including the mental health care – that they need"......while failing to acknowledge Obamacare has destroyed those healthcare benefits in Tricare.

The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

The new invisible war on women in this election year is female income discrimination.
Women actually make 91 cents to the dollar compared to men. Obama's 77 cents has been a misrepresentation for a long time. But it's not true and has been debunked even by the liberal media.
Because women are more likely to work in lower-paying occupations and leave the workforce when they have children and men are more likely to work longer hours and work in labor unions, it's like comparing apples to oranges.

But liberals will start another war on women because of 9 cents. Just to manipulate another election.
Care to answer to your conflicting stories concerning Bin Laden??

Or are you trying to avoid the fact that you have two completely contradictory bs lines about hunting him down.

Let's review what Carol has said in regards to OBL:

1./ Any President would have given the order that Obama gave.

2./ Bush couldn't be bothered with Bin Laden, he had other things to deal with.

which statement is true, Carol??

You can either give Obama full credit for what Bush couldn't do, or say it was no big deal to get the very top Al Queda leader reeponsible for the 9-11 attacks on America.

It was more important to get Bin Laden than it was to get Saddam Hussein. Saddam never attacked America, Bin Laden did, more than once.

Radical leftism always leads to anti-white ideologies, like in Zimbabwe, like in South Africa, like in the Soviet Union, like in North Korea, like in China etc.
It is funny how the hypocritical retards at the SPLC have a "right wing watch" section in which they pretend to care about what a miniscule amount of black supremacists say when these black supremacists are pure leftists.
What you think are ideals protecting some mythical culture. Just tell us about what your white culture has to offer ? Do you ignore all those Chinese restaurants, the Italian pizza shop, and all the other good things America has gained from other cultures, like art , music the list is endless. It all came from migration and the mix that has to offer. What makes your white culture so special you are better than all of that ?

To anyone else on here you sound no better than those Islamic religious factions fighting each other in the middle east over their own interpretation of Islam. Christian vs Muslims, Muslims vs Muslims its all total BS and you are under the same spell of ignorance. You even name Liberalism a culture you want nothing to do with, WTF is wrong with this picture!

Affordable only for some. But someone has to pay the millions and even trillions it will cost.

Hope you're not a young and healthy male younger than 39. Unless you're rich. According to CNN.

According to a National Journal analysis of coverage and costs, the vast majority of Americans healthcare premiums will be dramatically higher in the Obamacare exchanges than what they currently pay for their employer sponsored insurance.

A person must earn $20,000 or less in order for their current premiums to drop or stay the same. Anyone making over $20,000 per year will see significant increases, the amount of which will vary from state to state.

But don't tell me...it's all good.

Not really complaining. Prefer trying to shine a light in the darkness.

Feeling tired presently so time to say goodnight.

But thanks for the compliment anyway.

Nuc, posted the University of California Berkley study about the widening income gap over the past five years under this administration at least twice already. Pretty sure I posted it one time just for your benefit. But you might have been on a potty break.

I posted it sometime between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. today. Shouldn't take too long to find it.

Goodnight.

One more thing. We should all expect the worst and hope for the best.

We're all in the same boat whether on the starboard side or port side.

It also wouldn't hurt if we lived by GHW Bush's words and tried to be "a kinder, gentler nation" even in the midst of so much uncertainty and so many unknowns. It might come in handy as we face them together.

Hope I've been wrong the past five years. But don't think so.

Night.
