Where is Vice President Joe Biden?

Posted: Tuesday, June 11, 2013 12:00 am

I heard a “talking head” say the congressional hearings were a frivolous witch hunt. If so, it certainly seems many witches have been exposed, which leads us to another subject — credibility. Since even poor Jay Carney has appeared to spend most of his podium time agonizing over what “spin” he can foist onto the once “lap-dog” press, and our Attorney General attempts to justify the unjustifiable, what they need is a credible spokesperson.

So why and where have they been hiding Vice President Joe Biden — a man generally liked and admired by the voters, and a man not afraid to speak his mind? This valuable asset must be unleashed. No more arrogant zingers like, “Easter Egg hunting with my kids.” No more, “I don’t remember.”

This is a man of the people and an honest pillar of our society. When he says, “I don’t know,” you can take it to the bank.

    FYI: The shorter posts you steal and use here are easier to find since they require fewer words in the proper sequence.

    Per se:
    "What is Plagiarism?

    Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense:
    According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means
    to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
    to use (another's production) without crediting the source
    to commit literary theft
    to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing
    source

    In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

    But can words and ideas really be stolen?
    According to U.S. law, the answer is yes. The expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property and is protected by copyright laws, just like original inventions. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as a book or a computer file).
    All of the following are considered plagiarism:

    1. turning in someone else's work as your own
    2. copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
    3. failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
    4. giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
    5. changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without
    giving credit
    6. copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the
    majority of your work, whether you give credit or not (see our section on
    "fair use" rules)

    From: http://plagiarism.org/plagiarism-101/what-is-plagiarism

    Gee.... which of the above haven't you done?

    Does LNS have any standards at all?

    Mr. Baxxter queried: "Bobbin, I( thought you had a taxpayer funded job. Are you playiing on your computer instead of working?"

    Your researcher has been misinformed, Mr. Baxxter. Time to try Bing or Yahoo and get away from Google and the Mormons at Ancestry.com

    My husband is retired and I have declared myself "semi-retired" - I work my own hours - the majority of which are dedicated to a company run by a very prominent local businessman from the Stockton/Lodi area.

    It's a great place to work - everyone there works hard and is rewarded greatly for their efforts since the owner has an enormous amount of faith in, and appreciation for, the people he hires.

    Sorry to disappoint. Maybe you should try minding your own business for a change instead of looking into the lives of others and you seem to be doing.

    Yes, I'm the "nut" in the family who is constantly harassed for commenting on this site.

    But we all have our foibles. I think researching fountain pens for hours at a time to be counterproductive.

    So, we’re now reduced to a hearty “neener, neener, neener” because one’s language translator is better than another’s, yet that one’s spouse wouldn’t “stoop to read garbage on this site.”

    While I wholeheartedly agree that there’s plenty of nonsense to go around anywhere on the Internet, I’ve rather enjoyed some of the ideas and banter that are offered on this home-town comments system. I find the superiority of some to be falsely applied, else why would they continue hanging around in such squalid surroundings?

    Wrong Mr. Baxxter. I have 9 years of Spanish language instruction, plus 4 years of summers in Costa Rica with my second most favorite family.

    My husband doesn't stoop to read garbage on this site BTW.

    Besides, your "translator" used the most basic constructions - any Spanish 101 student could have translated this garbage.

    Nice try, though.

    Now you try to get away with your nonsense in another language? Has someone recently told you that you are "really clever?"

    Did you mean that "Joe Biden is a liberal, dead-brained idiot and he demonstrates it every time he opens his mouth?" And, "That's the only reason Obama is not going to lose his job, because no one wants Biden as president?"

    You really crack me up, Mr. Baxxter!

    Oh no! Could anyone actually believe I would support the current vice president for a run as a presidential candidate in 2016? No, I doubt I could ever bring myself to do that. But perhaps even sooner than 2017 Mr. Biden might need to take the reins of the Executive Branch based upon our current CINC’s ongoing “misdeeds.”

    I especially like the part where the author doesn't even identify the "congressional hearings" he seems to be referencing. Any ideas?

    Given the right's constant use of sound bites to imply wrong doing or beliefs or attitudes of those on the left, I promise that I will freely use "This is a man of the people and an honest pillar of our society. " at every opportunity in the future to describe any Democratic or liberal candidate, and freely cite it's source.

    Same with "This valuable asset ....". I'll put in the appropriate ending when used.

    Example: In the year 2016... Lodi News Sentinel Editorial Board Recommends: "Vice president Joseph Biden is the most qualified candidate for president and
    deserves our endorsement." Local LTE participant labeled Biden " "This is a man of the people and an honest pillar of our society. " He also predicted " "This valuable asset is the only one who can continue to lead our great nation on it's record economic recovery, started by outgoing President Obama."

    Sounds pretty good doesn't it.

    Your support for the election of Joe Biden as president in 2016 is truly astounding, Mr. Kinderman, i.e., "it might not be too soon at that" to be picking out drapes.

    I personally would not support his candidacy in the primaries since there are many more younger and equally as qualified Democratic hopefuls. I'm not sure I'd even support Hillary.

    But compared to the Republican jokers, errr..... Republican field of possible candidates, I definitely will still be voting Democrat.

    Sarcastic comedy?

    I certainly hope that Mr. Viall has a regular career, because there is no way he could make a dime from this attempt at what you call "sarcastic comedy," especially since all he did was repeat the talking points and jargon regularly heard on FOX News.

    It really makes me laugh that Mr. Chapman believes that Obama is the "only" president keeping secrets. If he didn't, you would be accusing him of treason.

    Just like the treasonous moron who is now proclaiming himself to be a "whistleblower" in Hong Kong who thinks that he is the first person to have discovered the DIRTY DOINGS of the US government in the past 230 years of our history, Mr. Chapman is just as convinced that Obama is the first.

    If that were true, there wouldn't be a reported million individuals like this clown that hold secret and top secret clearances as opposed to the president whose access is sometimes limited to a "need-to-know" basis.

    I think Mr. Viall asks a very interesting and salient question regarding the location of our esteemed vice president - and he does so with a bit of humor. Perhaps he and Mrs. Biden are already picking out some new drapes for the White House living quarters? It might not be too soon at that. Great letter, sir.

    Ms. Bobin, YOU of all people should recognize sarcastic comedy. Bravo, Mr. Viall. Our illustrious VP is probably "sequestered" in a back room in the WH to keep him from putting his foot in his mouth again and blabbing information Obama wants to keep secret from his ignorant subjects.

    Aside from the apparent need to make an attempt at his own "zingers" against the president, the AG and staff, I really see no sense to this letter.

    As far as Joe Biden goes, he's pretty much been MIA since the cowards in Congress declined to go forward with any of the gun control issues that he had worked on.

    I was thinking of a possibility that he was being facetious.

    "This is a man of the people and an honest pillar of our society. "

    Then he quoted him as saying that he doesn't know anything or have a brain, possibly.
