CaptainDrG -- will this patent bill help big corporations? Is this the one that looks at when a patent if filed versus when work began on the idea, giving big bidnesses which have, usually, patent attnys on staff, a big head start on filing?

And maybe using other people's ideas?

Obama is a Corporatist after all.

The America Invents Act HR 1249, in conference now, will make it harder for American Inventors to get patents. Obama has promised to sign this bad bill.

I'm a patent attorney who represents individual inventors.

Obama scares me because he leans so far to the right and also seems to love behind closed doors negotiating.

Also, he just opened his presser by saying cutting the deficit will mean new jobs?

What world does he live on?

Oh, yeah, right. I oughta know, I oughta know, i oughta know by now: Because he's a conservative

And he lives on Bizarro ConservoWorld..

Loving V. Virginia was decided by the Supreme Court, based on the president's
recent comments, Marriage was wrongly decided by the state of NY.
