👑 Plagiarize Princess, again 👑
For the record plagiarism is not a form of flattery/imitation. Plagiarism is a form of intellectual laziness and dishonesty. In the academic area plagiarism can & should lead to expolusion. In the professional world it can & should lead to termination. In the political arena, plagiarism is enough to choke a Senate Confirmation Hearing or possibly losing an election. I teach my children: if you didn’t write those words then you MUST attribute because “stealing” another person’s thoughts & presenting them as your own is intellectually dishonest.
Remember back in July 18, 2016? You know the Republican National Convention, where Donald Trump’s campaign fought hard to change the GOP stance on unkraine and all hell broke loose on the Convention Floor. Seeing Ken “the Cooch” Cucinelli booing at the top of his lungs was a warning sign of the sraight shenanigans When the highly anticipated speech from Melania Trump
Melania Trump RNC Speech 2016:
“,From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect,"
“They taught and showed me morals in their daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son. And we need to pass those lessons on to many generations to follow because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."
Michelle Obama DNC speech 2008;
...”Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you're going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them, and even if you don't agree with them,"
“And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."
Or plagiarize and “pretend” that “new” Cyber-bullying Campaign was your idea..
December 16, 2009 FTC unveils their NEW Cyber-bullying program, see FTC 2009 Official Press Release, here full disclosure the FTC “Net Cetera” link found in the second paragraph is “broken”. Conversely the FTC On-Gaurd link located in the fifth paragraph is functional, link here.
The FTC Net Cetera program was originally launched in 2009. The last update to the 15 page Pamphlet was circa 2014. The Net Cetera program encompasses the following features & goals.
“The conversations that make kids good digital citizens aren’t about the technology; they’re about communicating your values as a parent,” said FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz. “Teaching kids to treat others as they’d like to be treated online is key. Net Cetera tells you how to start those conversations – even if you think your kids are more tech-savvy than you are.”
“Net Cetera tells parents and teachers what they need to know to talk to kids about issues like cyberbullying, sexting, mobile phone safety, and protecting the family computer. Talking to kids about these topics can help them avoid behaving rudely online; steer clear of inappropriate content like pornography, violence, or hate speech; and protect themselves from contact with bullies, predators, hackers, and scammers.”
The First Lady’s Be Better, Cyber bullying platform:
Link to the 2009-2014, FTC Net Cetera 15 page pamphlet, here
Link to May 2018 FTC Talking with kids about being on the Internet, here
The only 3 differences in the Obama v Trump Cyber bullying pamphlets:
- Trump Admin pamphlet includes a 150+ word cover letter & a closing page
- < 4 graphic changes mainly changing a banner’s color alone
- Replaced 1 graphic with a “newer” lookimh smart phone
Beyond those minor changes the First Lady and her staff are attempting to pass off a 2014 Obama Administration Cyberbullying pamphlet as her own. Which is intellectually dishonest. Given the majority of this Cyber-bullying pamphet was largely written in 2009. The Internet landscape has dramatically changed in 2009. So again why does this Trump Administration think they can get away with this kind of nonsense?
Like I said Melania and her staff literally slapped their name on this FTC pamphlet and I assume they thought Americans were just too dumb to figure out the First Lady is a proven plagiarist. It still vexes me why Mrs. Trump, number 3 would lack the intellectual honesty to, maybe do her own work?
FTC May 7, 2018 blog entry
“Today, First Lady Melania Trump introduced her initiative to help children everywhere be their best. At her launch event at the White House, the First Lady distributed copies of Talking with Kids About Being Online, a guide to help parents and other adults have thoughtful conversations with kids about being safe and responsible online. We’re excited that the First Lady is sharing this important information with families across the country..”
“The FTC worked with children’s advocates, tech companies, and law enforcers to come up with the advice in the guide. They told us that while kids value the opinion of their peers, most tend to rely on their parents for help on the issues that matter most. That advice has proven true over the years. That’s why many school systems have shared it with every middle school student.
For some reason I get the feeling that, someone is purposely trying to make Melania Trump look bad.
