Nobody Likes a Lying Politician

POST #    607

Hmm...where have I seen this before? Oh yeah! On my site!

The other day, I noticed a new referrer to my site, after going to the site, I found that it was that of a 2004 Presidential hopeful. Who, you ask? Why, none other than Paul Conrad. You're probably still wondering who that is. He appears to be a loony from Brooklyn that is running for president.

He's got some positions and promises, which are all things that legitimate candidates have as well. One of his promises is, "I will never lie, cheat, or steal." In his "About Me" page, he claims that growing up, he learned from his grandparents "that when you borrow something, you return it in better shape than when you took it." Well, after taking a look at the main page of his site, it seems that he copied my post about the GOP and their boat word for word, stealing my ideas without credit. Sounds like a regular old politician to me! He also has a copyright on his site. How do you copyright someone else's writing without quoting them or citing them? Sounds like an outright lie.

I hope that anyone that reads Paul Conrad's site realizes that he's a cheat and a liar just like every other politician or, in his case, a wanna be politician. If you're going to send him a contribution, don't bother, donate it to a worthier cause.

It should be noted that I contacted Paul Conrad by e-mail about his site, but I got no answer. Typical politician.

maybe conrad is just very smart. i bet the number of hits to his site skyrockets after the free publicity you're giving him in your post...

That is HORRIBLE! What a tool.

Although, I see that he does have a link to your site right above the picture.

I'll be sure not to vote for him. Wait, I haven't voted for anyone in a long time, so there's likely no danger of that happening.

rappy, yeah, there is a link to my site, but is that enough considering that he copied the whole thing? usually, people summarize, link, and then put their own opinion. in this case, there is no opinion offered, just copying.

Just because some nutjob ripped you off is no reason to slander all politicians. get a grip.

blah blah blah. take my criticism of other politicians with a grain of salt.

despite the link, usually direct quotes are indicated more clearly than they are on mr. conrad's site.

i don't take tien's blustering about politicians seriously. he's just mad. (down, tien, down! ;))
