I just read this debate on raising taxes on the top 1%:

http://www.debate.org...

It struck me as odd how similar the first round for the opposing side of raising taxes on the 1% was to my opening arguments in this debate on the same topic:

I was not given any credit on Bobturner's opening argument despite it obviously being a copy of mine (with a few minor changes).

I had never seen this debate until now. But, I was wondering if bobturner is guilty of plagiarism of my arguments?

Yup, clicking back and forth between the two arguments is amusing. He clearly copy & pasted while lazily changing minor words.
