    How about a rule that if your going to rip off other peoples words and writting, you should have to site a source or link for it. Not pass it off as your own...kinda shocke its not a rule already

    I agree ... but only if there is an accompanying rule that does not allow comments about the author or the source of the article.

    You will be forced to discuss the substance of the post, rather than whining because it came from Fox News. I don't think you can do it.

    Looking at the source of Info is a valid argument...stealing other peoples work is not. But if you don't think someone posting a artical from the Onion as true, and pointing out its not true do to the source is not valid so be it.

    I'm sorry you can't think for yourself

    Actually, the source is NOT a valid argument ... it is the CONTENT of the post that is subject to discussion. Who cares if it comes from Fox News or the Huffington Post?

    Frankly, arguing the source is a piss poor excuse for not being able to refute the content.

    Get over it ... I know it takes away one of your favorite misdirections, but it's time to step up or shut up.

    but that is at least 50% of the lefty playbook as debating content is just really hard from their vantage point.

    Exactly. And, taking away one of their misdirection tools severely limits their input.

    So the moderators of this site are in favor of plagiarism now as well? And you wonder why this site is dead

    your lack of being able to think for yourself limits input. I would not even have to try to take you down, your a light weight

    When you're left bleeding on the floor, does it really matter who had the knife?

    Its not dead. Its 100% all American politics site. Its an good debatable site. If youre left wing and cant beat the elephants here then go to an liberal site who agrees 100% with you.
