I've been working at getting my content off this site with no luck. I've notified the site and Google, but I found more hubs on the site. It is a guy named Danny Calloway copying them there.

There is a list of links at the bottom of the page, if you want to search for one of yours.
First, please destroy that link. Put an extra space in or after the www maybe. Never give a thief free backlinks from a respected site such as HP.
Second, google has nothing to do with this site and cannot remove anything there. Find the host, using a whois service, and file your DMCA there. You can also file with adsense, as theft is against their rules, in the hopes they will cancel the adsense account.
Send the DMCA to this email address and they will remove your content:
Thanks. I'll try that. I've been emailing them, but I might have been using the wrong email address.
The site is a user-generated content site, like YouTube or HubPages. It's reputable and it has always responded promptly to my removable requests. The email I posted is the correct one to use. Let me know if your content isn't removed within a few days.
This is from their Terms of Service:
"7. IBO has a zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism. IBO recognizes that blogging is a heavily referential medium and that bloggers frequently cite and quote from each other’s work. Such citations might be protected under the legal doctrine of fair use. However, IBO will remove any post that crosses the line from fair use to plagiarism, at IBO’s sole discretion. Authors who knowingly submit plagiarized work may be banned from IBO communities."
Google can only remove the website from their search result after filing DMCA. To take down the content, contact the host. If host is negligible about request then I ma sorry to say there is nothing you can do other than writing new content.

While searching for copied hubs on one of the sites already mentioned in the forums, I've found another one. Again, it appears to be a complete copy, albeit a poorly executed one. Worryingly, I found that in...

I constantly see people who threaten to leave HP because they don't like the limitations here. Unless you are a professional writer who does this for a living, I think you should be careful about doing this and...
