I am posting below the exact contents of an email I just received. The press -- and the public -- should be outraged by this plagiarism [thanks to Oliver Willis of Oliverwillis.com for sending this out]


A passage from Bush's speech is lifted from FDR's 1941 State of The Union. DIRECTLY LIFTED:

"Our third responsibility to future generations is to leave them an America that is safe from danger, and protected by peace. We will pass along to our children all the freedoms we enjoy - and chief among them is freedom from fear."

[note from teacherken the plagiarism is the three words "freedom from fear"]

Also the basis for 4 of Rockwell's most famous paintings:


The Plagiarist In Chief is STEALING from FDR's state of the union while he tries to destructively privatize the social security system.
