Owning Ideas

You should have mentioned the most egregious example of ideas being copyrighted: what the King family has done with MLK's speeches and writings. That's why you didn't see much of MLK's actual words in the recent movie "Selma." They won't let anyone use those words because they copyrighted them all after he died. So even though we have a national holiday honoring the man, we don't get to see or read what he said without paying the King family a hefty fee. That "I have a dream" speech we see a couple seconds of every time his name is mentioned: almost nobody you know has actually seen it because you have to pay the King family $10 to buy the videotape and they won't let anyone show it on TV even on MLK Day.
You have some sort of logical disconnect because you admit that infants who were infected were too young to have been vaccinated. Then you go on to blame the lack of vaccinations for the outbreak. How about doing some actual research and find out where the outbreak started? I bet it started with some of Obama's illegal aliens who are pouring across the border unimpeded, and I bet at least some of those people infected had already been vaccinated. As we learned with the similar whooping cough outbreak, the vaccines are not nearly as effective as people think.
Great column. I invite everybody to visit my timeline of the Democrat Party's history: http://www.jpattitude.com/DemocratPartyTimeline.php. This is a political party with a truly heinous past.

It's almost like you didn't even read the column. That or you don't comprehend property rights.
Nicely done, Star. A few years ago I wrote a similar column pointing out that, by definition, whatever government does, it cannot properly be called charity: http://www.jpattitude.com/100225.php. Liberals love to confuse the definition of and misuse words, and I think this particular misuse gets to the crux of the difference between conservatives and liberals.

Ouch. I hope those words make "Cru" (really?) take a good hard look at themselves.
You were firing on all cylinders when you wrote this column. Well done. I would like to think that Pollitt will feel shame at being called out like this, but I am not confident.

"If we are going to talk about history, let's at least get the facts right." Exactly. Republicans need to trumpet the facts from every roof top. The history of the Republican Party is heroic, the history of the Democrat Party is racist and oppressive. The Democrat Party Timeline of Ignominy: http://www.jpattitude.com/DemocratPartyTimeline.php
"The ACLU issued a statement saying that it was "outraged" over the vandalism." Humorous, eh? Thea ACLU is perfectly fine with doing the same thing to the Ten Commandments legally so why would they take issue with a more direct method?

"Only multi-millionaires can afford to fight back." But even they are helpless. I recommend reading Conrad Black's book about his own persecution by the American justice system. After years of prosecution, driving him out of his own company, and nearly bankrupting him, Chicago gangsters... er, I mean prosecutors finally convicted him of removing evidence - in Canada - which was his personal possessions the company asked him to remove from his office - and which was stuff the prosecutors already had seen. For this a company was ruined and a man spent time in a American prison.
