I wasn't aware that the correct protocol before delivering a speech is to acknowledge the tribute sections by mentioning them in advance, so the audience knows the speech didn't contain plagiarised sections. But perhaps in your conservative circles they do.
It common courtesy to acknowledge that you've lifted something - as I said along the lines of "...in the words of the great Margaret Thatcher" or "...as John F. Kennedy famously said...". For someone like Biden to not acknowledge where he lifts portions of his noble speeches from is just plain selfish.

You're a cataloguing and reference expert (supposedly) and you didn't know that? Or you're just playing ignorant because it's me that pointed it out.

Naturally when it comes to President Biden, we all know in your eyes he'll never measure up the the grandness of President Trump. Therefore everyone knows those comments from you will in all likelihood be somewhat biased.

At the end of the day, I'll take a President who may, from time to time, pay tribute to other past world leaders over a President who could barely string words of more than two syllables together, whilst keeping a bare-faced lying straight face  

ABC news tonight reports that President-elect Biden has appointed the first ever openly gay person and former rival as incoming Secretary for Transportation. The President-elect may be the oldest ever, but his inspirational and un-biased thinking is much younger than any President before him.

The Vinelander
The opposite is true, Mike. Trump really wasn't that remarkable as President and he certainly had his faults but the group-think around his (apparent) inherent evil was really obvious on this board. Anyone who spoke about the good things that came out of the Trump Presidency like the punishment levied against China for not playing fair got nothing but scorn from you people who automatically assumed that because I wasn't joining in with the heard in condemning the man that I must automatically love him.

Sheeple, the lot of you.

The Vinelander
For the third time today, repeating someone's brilliant speech without attribution isn't 'paying tribute' - it's THEFT. The reason his Presidential bid in 1988 got sunk was because he got caught out with plagiarising those speeches, that's how seriously his unattributed theft was viewed at that time.

But for some reason you think it's a good thing.

Trump wasn't anti-gay, Mike, he was in show-business.

As I said with Trump, the proof will be in what he actually does - so what if he's appointed someone openly gay to an important portfolio? It doesn't mean he's not a corrupt incompetent.

Another one who thinks his contributions to this board are on a par with Aristotle or Socrates...

We've had four years of your incessant whinging about Trump and yet you can't bear five seconds of my pertinent observations about the demented crook Biden? Buckle up, sweetheart, I haven't even started yet.
don_dunstan

The Brazilian footballer Socrates was certainly alive in the RP era, and his politics certainly aligned with some of the more nefarious contributors here, but I doubt he was a regular visitor. Biden, whilst a bit of a pinko, is not really a crook and certainly not demented.

And yet when you mention anything about the Orange one, tbe chosen one froths at the mouth. At such an mild statement. I am surprised his head doesnt do a 360.

Full of baseless accusations and bluster that one.

Rubbish! I just said a few days ago he wasn't perfect, that he wasted many opportunities to reform and that I think he's behaving like a brat not conceding.

Don chiding somebody about lack of evidence? Now I've seen it all - the ultimate double standard demonstrated yet again.

(Note: Don's probably forgotten that he's been asked three times for his evidence concerning his transgender rant in this very thread, and he still hasn't provided any.  But that's our Don isn't it?)

I specifically said I'd made a mistake straying into the vexatious area of the whats and the whys of children with gender identity dysphoria and wanted to stick to the subject of Crazy Joe Biden approving boys with full hairy bushes and post-pubescent genetaila walking into the girls' showers in any federally-funded public school in the United States.

Being bogged down in the mire of trying to explore why gender-confused people are crazy wasn't where I wanted to go - it's an argument that would be too hard. Whereas the pretty cut-and-dried issue of why those 'gender confused' boys could be sex-offenders walking right into the girls' showers is a much easier argument to win - that's why Vinelander Mike wouldn't touch it with a barge-pole because he knew I'd win on those grounds. Weak-as-water isn't he.

And before you whinge - yes, I only take on arguments I know I can win. You do that all the time, Valvegear, why should I be any different.

And by the way, "Doctor" Jill Biden is also a fake. She wrote an essay and got a PhD off the back of Weeties box... good for her.

And it's no surprise to see that the midst outlandish racist stereotypes are somehow acceptable in some quarters when directed against Slavs. Would you make the same comment about other races? I gave lived with this nonsense most of my life but rise above it, unlike others who insist on creating fantasy pressure groups at the drop of a hat for the most insignificant of imaginary slights.

My comment was referring to the thought of being in the same sheets as Donald Trump. I said nothing about Melania but thanks for putting words in my mouth I suppose.

You're comment fine, quite amusing even. I was refering to wobert's snide innuedo that East European woman are prostitutes. I bet he wouldn't say the same about South East Asian women, for example.

Now you're playing pretend psychologist with me again - seriously - I'm the one with the problem? All you people have done is froth at the mouth since I pointed out this was part of Biden's incoming 'reforms' as if I've made it up just to stir you.

And I'm sick to death of being asked to produce evidence on this, you people are either terminally lazy and can't Google stuff for yourselves or are just incapable of believing something unless I produce links - in which case you'll either continue to berate or ignore me or you'll say that I've found those links from biased news sources.

This policy is actually a leftover from the Obama era where he passed a law saying that federally-funded schools must allow children who identify as "female" or "male" to be allowed to use the toilets and change-rooms of their choice - a 2016 analysis of the announcement from ABC America. Further, if you identify as a girl you must be allowed to play with their girls in their sports or else that's a form of discrimination - Biden's incoming legal team have confirmed that this will be part of the reforms; US Education Week says that this is the current advice being given to schools.

It's a worry - Obama passed a law without telling schools how they should take steps to prevent potential sexual predators into changerooms, how they should define who was genuine and how they should protect girls from boys who were simply having a lend. In addition boys who are biologically still boys are going to cause problems for girls when they play things like contact sport because they're naturally stronger than girls and it really isn't fair. Obama didn't tell schools how they should manage any of these problems, he just dumped them with that law and told them to deal with it - and Biden is set to do the same.

Any more questions Mike then you need to Google it yourself and see what you come up with.

Can you think of one good reason why we should take your unsupported word for anything?
You're always too lazy to provide evidence and now have the audacity to complain that we're too lazy to look things up to support your ramblings.
At the same time, you complain that mejhammers1 has made a point without providing evidence.
You stand exposed as a world-class, self-centred hypocrite and, as The Vinelander pointed out, obsessive compulsive, bordering on psychotic.

"Self-centred hypocrite" - that from you! "Obsessive compulsive" - about what? And psychotic to boot - how am I psychotic, Valvegear? I reckon I'd have to be pretty much one of the most lucid and cogent people on this board.

As usual you know what you're talking about, Valvegear - you didn't even know what a 'strawman' argument was until I came along and educated you. You can't argue properly, you just use school-yard insults and childish memes to try and intimidate me - and yet you can't even do that properly.

YES...you are the one with the problem. Exclamation

Nah, Mike, it's you who has the problem.

I did exactly as you and Valvegear demanded and went off and found direct evidence of what was going on with this Biden law and you still both have the temerity to tell me that I'm insane and obsessive. I'm not the one who has been pushing this 'transsexual children' thing over the last three pages, I'm the one who has been responding to your accusations of bigotry and demands for evidence. Get it right.
As I'm not obsessive about this subject and as you have obviously gleaned your info from the Murdoch media...
The Vinelander
It's not from the Murdoch media, it's from mainstream sources as per my links. And anyway what difference does it make, it's the truth.
...never a friend of progressive politics...not that that needed to be said.
The Vinelander
This is NOT about 'progressive politics' - this is about the practical issue of what happens when you let potential sex offenders into girls' changing rooms and how do you determine who really thinks they're a boy trapped in a girl's body and who is just doing to fulfill a sexual perversion. The Obama law did nothing to define how to implement it instead just telling federally-funded public schools that they'd be punished if they didn't comply. You keep avoiding that part of the conversation because you know you can't win the argument - you know it's WRONG and that it puts girls into direct danger but like all the other sheeple here you're too afraid of being labelled 'intolerant' if you condemn it.

Weak as water.
Therefore I'm not doing any research to back up your feeble and ridiculous claims. Mike.
The Vinelander
Of course you won't because you know I'm right.

Can we move on now?
