Hi Tot. Seems you have learned to copy and paste. This can be done ad infinitum if one wishes. It is however usually used to illuminate ones point in his or her blog. In other words, show where the words came from or who authored them. Otherwise it will be considered plagiarism. I mean, those words above did not COME FROM YOU, did they?

We all can read newspapers, web-sites, other newspaper columns, etc. But what this site seems to cultivate, is personal and authentic viewpoints from individuals who may or may not hold different perspectives.

You could just give the link along with your thoughts rather than posting the whole message from another source(s).

Other wise, we will all maybe end up just posting entire articles from other sources. And I don't think that is the function of this site.

JimmyMack, I understand what you are saying.

That is why I posted it as I did by Labeling it as coming from Herman Cain and leaving the last line of Cain's post which identified where Cain got it from, which was Clark Barrow on twitter @ClarkBarrow.

And gacpl saw the sources in the first paragraph.

Thank you both for your observation and commentary.

I certainly did not intend to give the impression of having created the piece.

I suspect that Herman Cain is still a contender for elected office on the National level.

I would love to see him become President.

He has a track record of success in business and finance.

Unfortunately the biased media will paint him unfavorably.

And those who vote for hand outs will eagerly vote for the likes of an Obama.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jan 15, 2014 at 08:22 AM

@gacpl. Yeah I saw that. My inference was intended as a request to Tot to show HIS opinion along with his post. I meant no disrespect.

@TOT: Don't count Herman out yet. As smart as he is the man is capable of learning how the process works having gone thru one spin of the wheel. He is articulate and offers up resolutions to problems.

Cain is stepping up the Facebook activity.

It will be interesting to observe this.
