If President Barack Obama doesnt like you - his government tends to make your life really, REALLY miserable.
The small and dwindling contingent in favor of the terrible, patent-smashing bills being considered in Congress suffer from an obsessive fetish patent trolls. Its at once a mantra and a Pavlovian fervor-inducer. Just say patent troll in front of any member of this tiny cohort and watch them freak out.
Not at all surprisingly, two government speech regulations ended up doing exactly what the Constitution was written to prevent it doing. Behold the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-imposed Fairness Doctrine and Equal Time provision.
Monday was a federal holiday. By that we mean government bureaucrats had the day off - the people who pay them did not. For people addled by Political Correctness (PC) - it was Indigenous People Day. For We the Sane - it was Columbus Day.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So too a patent troll.
Socialism is a failed ideology. It was the avant-garde approach to how to do government in the Twentieth Century. The Soviet Union was the flagship petri dish that conquered, infiltrated or ingratiated themselves with many other nations to establish them as additional petri dishes (Hello, Cuba).
The Donald Trump presidential phenomenon rolls on. Higher and higher his primary polls climb. Hes caught the irretrievably corrupt Hillary Clinton in a prospective general election matchup.
Being Leftist means never having to say youre sorry. Being a huge Barack Obama-Democrat donor doesnt hurt either.
The entirety of the United States is now a federal disaster area - rendered thus by Washington, D.C. Unlike areas hit by hurricanes, tornadoes and other acts of God - our cataclysm is entirely man-made. Decades of anti-Reality policies have left our nation an uber-addled mess.
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Actons sage sentiment: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.
The Left, along with huge Leftist companies, are pushing to fundamentally transform - radically undermine - the constitutionally-protected intellectual property known as patents. As the Left is wont to do, they are looking to thoroughly alter the Constitution - without amending it.
