    As for plagiarism, you can read 100 different articles on logical fallacies, the economy, lists of facts, state of the economy, or pick pretty much any topic from cars to abortion to tiddlywinks, etc. etc. etc. and you will find many presenting the same opinions and/or facts. I know because I used to teach this stuff.

    And pretty much anything we read or use for reference is likely to influence our store of knowledge or perception on any given topic.

    So will my list comparing intellectual honesty with intellectual dishonesty be similar to many others? Of course it will. Because many of us agree on the points expressed.

    Is the material my own? Yes it is. I did not copy and paste from anybody else.

    Intellectual dishonesty is rampant in internet chat.
    This blog could not be more on point.
    Brava, AlbqOwl.

    Thanks Maggie, but since our local paper is guilty of some of that, I doubt they would publish it. Or they would edit it beyond recognition.

    Boy, I sure wish you'd fire this off as a Letter to the Editor. This is excellent.

    Thanks Cvir but both sides have to accept responsibility for being able to debate difficult issues without hating each other. The Washington Post, to their credit, featured an 8-minute speech by Marco Rubio on the floor of the Senate today. I wish all would take a few minutes and listen:

    Well said! Couldn't agree more. Something you touched on which is the most disturbing to me is the misinformation. If you ask some of the protesters to explain what they are protesting, they answer with some name calling rant or a totally false and inaccurate statement evidenced by their signs like: "We Welcome all Immigrants" or "Gays welcome Muslims". They obviously do not understand the facts or more likely, they are very aware of the facts and this is just their frustration with the election. Perhaps most dangerous is the media, who, for the most part, seem quite content to provide credibility to these anarchists. And the hypocrisy is stunning.

    Most people in the USA drink coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon.

    Just sayin'.

    Removing the pilot flying at a mountain side needs to be done with a quick and clean move. What you don't want is disorienting squabbling and lots of people grabbing and fumbling the controls.

    Well! Today I see that "Milano likes this post" has been changed to "Milano TRES BORRACHOS likes this post". It seems that somebody did'nt like it. Anyway, I add the translation of TRES BORRACHOS : it means : 3 drunk people. Thanks to the Anonimous for giving me the possibility of showing my PERFECT knowledge of both languages. Descansa en paz. amiguito!

    The pilot obviously isn't aiming for any buildings. But it seems some would crash the plane anyway to keep him from what he is aiming at.

    So what is it that Trump is aiming for that they don't want?

    He closed his inaugural speech with:

    -Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

    -We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

    -We Will Make America Proud Again.

    -We Will Make America Safe Again.

    -And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again

    Does the opposition want America to be weak? Poor? Ashamed? Unsafe? Mediocre?

    Common sense- Good sense-No sense at hall- Somebody in this forum said that what you like is right. What you dislike is wrong. Who said that, in my opinion is right. Preident Trump, in my opinion, is 3/4 right. Give him time.
