    And of course it's not a matter of plagiarizing. It's what's plagiarized. Right, Ms. Bobbin?

    Had the letter been plagiarism and thus citing the positive attributes of Obamacare, we wouldn't have heard a peep of criticism from Bobbin and Co.

    Good work, Mr. Barrow.

    You have identified many in the past, and now finally with some results!

    Thank you to the LNS for FINALLY rejecting a letter due to plagiarism.

    There have been countless instances of letters copied and pasted from websites. Usually, if it sounds too "well-written," (think "beyond the writer's ability to compose) I automatically copy and paste it into a search engine and BOOM - the original source magically appears.

    I can't imagine why ALL letters are not screened in this manner.

    My apologies to Mr. Baumbach, I should have double checked. I should not have cast aspersions on his asparagus.

    Whoa. Where'd the letter go? Which letter was this? Was this the latest Darrell Baumbach screed? Did he plagiarize once again? Will he never learn?

    I thought I posted this yesterday? Anyway if anyone is interested you can find where this letter was stolen from, word for word, at Before it's News.
    At least Before It's News gives credit for the article to Freedomworks where it was originally published unfortunately I can't read the original apparently Freedomworks only allows so much freedom on it's member only website .

    What does this actually mean?

    Makes no sense what-so-ever. "...paid for by those who found themselves looking for new policies..."????

    Speaking of Archconservative/Retrogressive sponges...

    A sponge?

    Yes, Bill is the perfect Archconservative/Retrogressive sponge.

    Imagine a sponge that has been immersed in a bucket of "dirty water" (think: FAUXNEWS and angry white man media) for months and months. It now reeks horribly of rotten garbage and most normal (think: content) people don't want to be anywhere around it.

    Folks, there's no facts, truth or reality retained here. Only the usual partisan hyperbole, untruths, false facts and misinformation designed to frighten (think: anger) the ignorant.

    The LNS graciously welcomes everyone to share their opinion in a letter to the editor.

    So on letter submission day...

    Just apply a little pressure or a "quick squeeze" and out comes the dirt.

    The ACA wasn't meant to benefit anyone already insured - it was only meant to "help" those who had no insurance. Now they can get expensive insurance that is paid for by those who found themselves looking for new policies and doctors in spite of the promise of low cost and keeping previous doctors, plans and hospitals.

    Lies, lies, lies. But everyone should be happy now.
