The Old York Times is good for something after all

July 26, 2014

They have this nice graphic of ultra-liberal Montana Senator John Walsh’s plagiarism. If you’re going to write just 14 pages for your Master’s thesis, surely you can be bothered to write at least half of it yourself…

    United States Army War College? Total party school, so what do you expect?

      I tend to agree with Jake. I read this somewhere:
      “The War Colleges offer a nearly year-long in-residence program for senior officers who are being groomed for flag rank — a place for them to go and think deeply, after a couple of decades in uniform, about history, strategy, and the intellectual burdens of senior command. Half-assed plagiarism of half-assed papers — at this level! — is a sign of institutional rot, not just personal failings. No one noticed? What’s the general level of officer scholarship at the War Colleges? What’s the general level of quality in the contemporary flag ranks?”

      And this comment: There’s a lot of institutional rot in a lot of places these days.

    Google, “Republican plagiarism”.

    For ultra-conservatives it’s not academic, it’s epidemic.

      My google search came up with “Joe Biden”. Has Joe ever been accused of plagiarism?
      Funny, I don’t think of him as a Repub…

        Dang. Now Google is saying “Martin Luther King”.
        Say it isn’t so! No way was MLK a Repub.

          Oh, Jim, dear, even I know how to Google. I am beginning to think that you are a simpleton.

    Cue off topic legalinsurrection link in 3…2…1…and…we’re live from Jim’s bubble with another freshly made cool, sweet pitcher of Kool-Aid. The ice cubes are swirling and clinking invitingly as we stir with a wooden spoon out here in the summer heat of Mtn View, CA, USA!

      Jim, honey, don’t let those mean trolls taunt you about legalinsurrection. Everyone needs their own safe place, why can’t you.

      • Jim,MtnView,Ca,USA on July 27, 2014 at 4:31 pm

        Hey, thanks for the uplifting words!
        I’m sure it pays to take psychological advice from a guy who talk to himself.

        • Mad Dog's mom on July 27, 2014 at 6:15 pm

          It appears to be just you here, Jim, plus some mean trolls, so I don’t blame you for talking to yourself.

            As Mr Rogers would say: “Can you spell ‘c-l-i-n-i-c-a-l’? I knew you could!”

          • Laughing at the brainless troll on July 29, 2014 at 2:26 am

            The troll couldn’t spell ‘r-e-a-l-i-t-y’ to save its miserable life.

    Here in CA, we saw the Dems make power generation costly and, in some cases, illegal. After the “ship hit the sand”, they bought long term contracts with Enron at ruinous prices. Then they said Enron caused the problem.
    More recently Germany, Spain and other Euro countries have tried a similar approach. Recently Germany discovered that their country was often cloudy (who couldanode?) and that solar would never be a full replacement for the nukes and coal plants that had been shuttered. Over the last month their decision to out-source energy to Russia has been shown to be problematic. Spain was so generous with solar subsidies that they had to cut them … in fact, cut them retroactively and require people to pay back money that had already been disbursed.

    For anyone living the New England area, this scenario is coming to your neighborhood.
    “… natural gas — the fuel that everybody loves until you have to drill for it — has risen from 15 percent (source of all power) to a starkly vulnerable 52 percent, just behind California.
    There’s only one problem. New England doesn’t have the pipelines to bring in the gas. Nor is anyone going to be allowed to build it, either.”

    “Last winter, when record low temperatures hit, there just wasn’t enough gas to go around. … Prices skyrocketed from $4 per mBTU to an unbelievable $79 per mBTU and electricity prices spiked to ten times their normal level.”

    “New Englanders already pay 45 percent higher electric bills than the rest of the country and that figure can only grow.”

    “When the crisis finally arrives this winter or next, you can be sure Vermont’s socialist Senator Bernie Sanders will be at the head of the pack, braying that the whole thing has been caused by “speculators.””

    The poster here is not truly Mad Dog’s mom, but rather an unemployed vibrator repairman.

    Thank you for pointing that out, Mr. Le Strap.
