They have to steal good ideas, since they have none of their own.

Look, I don't care if Hitler has the good idea, if it is a good idea, helps others and avoids final solutions, then great.

"You might think that with such a blatant theft Stamas would have added his own spin to the resolution. You would be wrong. HJR L and HJR N are identical, word-for-word."

I used to insert "invisible" identifiers in reports and queries I wrote so I could tell when my work was being copied or reused, just for my own knowledge. This likely being simple copypasta I'd start trying to work in a sentence whose initial letters spell "GOPSUCKS."

Yes but if Democrat bills are allowed to pass as Democrat bills then the whole country will be taken over by lesbian bassoonists and we will all be forced at gunpoint to read the book "Ulysses" by James Franco

It's worth noting in the article that some Democrats are guilty of the same thing.

It's absolutely insane childishness from a governing body.

These aren't the ultra right-wing Republicans. These are regular Republicans, who are completely unable or unwilling to do what's in the best interests of our country if it means working with Democrats. Stop pretending that the GOP has been hijacked. The entire party is bad,
 
2013-04-23 04:44:14 PM
Hell, that stuff happens all the time for generations. I'm surprised it still makes news.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we're all supposed to vote Republican now because Dems sometimes do bad things.   I'm glad Goldspider cleared that up.

So? This is exactly what Romney was going to do with the ACA. His whole "repeal and replace" idea boiled down to "repeal, put a new cover sheet on it with my name, and pass it with 100% Republican approval."

One of the examples was were a Senate bill was introduced by Dem after a House bill had been introduced by a republican. Not really a grand indictment.

If he promises to only introduce bills proposed by Democrats? Sure, why not?

How absolutely disgusting.  Thank you Michigan GOP for lowering the bar for the Republican Party. Twas quite the challenge.

So primary your arseholes. And don't get all sanctimonious with the rest of us if we don't show up to support your arsehole whom you refused to primary and he loses in the general.

There's a key difference between preschoolers and Republican legislators...

Adult supervision.

I would just quietly go along with it and support it, then after the bill passes sue his ass for copyright infringement.

Who are these sane leaders? The closest to sanity that they had were Gary Johnson and Huntsman, neither of whom has the GOP turned to in any form of soul searching. The leaders of the party are not sane and the sane are not allowed within 20 miles of Having any authority.

The freshman Democrat learned a very valuable lesson today.

As a young person attempting to play ball with the older generations I've had TONS of my ideas, topics and paperwork ripped off by those beside or above me. There is nothing "against the rules" about it, and you look childish complaining. Here is what I now do (or something similar) in work that I feel important.

Test Example:
Here is some work. Round the bend we go. Heck of an awesome project I'm working on. Wish I had some better reports to work on. Alas, I don't always know what to do. Some of us can't figure this stuff out. Hopefully, no one noticed. Everyone should notice though. Run, run Rudolph. Elephant banana pants.

Translates to:
H-R-H   W-A-S   H-E-R-E

Then later, if you were ripped off, you laugh and point it out to the most gossip-flowing coworkers in the office. It has worked every time.

Question: When people plagiarize, why do they not reword things?
Answer: Because if they weren't lazy they'd have done their own work.

Ha! I just use Google translate to put it in Spanish, and then back to English!

Here is a little work. Around the bend we go. Heck of a project I'm working awesome. I wish I had some better reporting to work. Unfortunately, not always know what to do. Some of us can not understand this place. Hopefully, nobody noticed. Everyone should note though. Run, run Rudolph. Banana Pants elephant.

A groundbreaking stream-of-consciousness exploration of the bond between a man and his dakimakura.

I ain't even mad. That's amazing.
 
2013-04-23 05:13:27 PM
As it turns out, this practice is not particularly uncommon and happens in both directions.

Meh. It's sleezy, but that's what our government is. I don't give a shiat if my rep or senator sponsored or co-sponsored legislation, I only care if they supported or opposed it.
