It’s Time to Roll Back the Attacks against our Nation’s Inventors

The Barack Obama Administration was a very bad era in the nation’s Intellectual Property (IP) history. The Obama Administration was chock full of historic firsts.  To wit: It was almost unquestionably the administration most hostile ever to IP and its protection. Perhaps the administration’s most egregious act?  Inventing a whole new way to attack patents – by abusing antitrust law. To demonstrate the obnoxiousness of | Read More »

The Biggest Impediment to Better Internet? Local Governments

Thanks to the obscene over-officiousness of the Barack Obama Administration, we have spent much of our time the less decade or so discussing the incredible damage the federal government can do – and was doing – to…everything. Obama’s outsized over-officiousness – certainly warranted the outsized extra attention.  Because his one-size-fits-none government impositions – left no room for anyone anywhere to breathe.  Let alone actually engage | Read More »

Trade Deals – Like Everything Else – Are Immutably Subject to Human Nature

Commercial trade between people and peoples – is subject to what everything else on the planet is subject: human nature. Much of what one should know about human nature – could have been learned in high school.  Life – is high school on steroids. Life has cliques – just as high school did: Jocks, geeks, nerds, spazs, etc.  You may have different group names – | Read More »

There Is So Much Wrong with the Left’s State-Level Pushes for Net Neutrality

Ever since the Donald Trump Administration’s Trump Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it was undoing the Barack Obama Administration FCC’s unilateral, Congress-free imposition of 1934 monopoly landline telephone law on to the Internet – under the guise of the very awful Network Neutrality – Leftists have been flexing the crazy they have long since gone. Trump’s FCC Wants To Kill A Free And Open Internet | Read More »

On Patents – Like Immigration – It Depends on Who Is Doing the ‘Reforming’

Believe me when I say: I believe with moral certitude and every fiber in my being that the federal government – in ways more numerous than the stars in the sky – is way overdue for massive and dramatic reform. But I am a staunch conservative – and less government proponent.  You know who else says DC is in dire need of “reform?”  The biggest | Read More »

The Democrat-Left: Stupid, Insane – and Very, Very Violent

We are in the midst of a seriously, seriously dangerous ramp up by the radical Left.  Not since the 1960s have these people been this riled up, angry – and prone to fits of violence. The 1960s gave us murderous groups like the Weather Underground (founders of which launched future president Barack Obama’s political career) and the Black Panthers – which marred our existence for | Read More »

Taxation w/o Representation. Interstate Commerce Usurpation. Murdered Federalism. Internet Sales Tax

The Supreme Court last week issued a really ridiculous and awful ruling.  In blatant violation of the Constitution’s Commerce Clause and its protections of federalism – and of the “Taxation without representation” foundational rally cry of the American Revolution that preceded it. First – the Constitution violation.  Behold Article I, Section 8, Clause 3: “[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, | Read More »

It’ll Be Great to Have the Patent Office Again Issuing Patents – Rather than Killing Them

Time and again, the Donald Trump Administration has done the exact opposite of what the predecessor Barack Administration did. Most thankfully – for the health and well being of our nation. Obama imposed tens of thousands of pages of new regulations.  Trump has been cutting twenty-two regs for every one he adds. Obama imposed Obamacare.  Trump and Republicans have excised key elements of the heinousness. | Read More »

Net Neutrality Lie Reminder: Netflix Fakes Service Slowdowns – and Blames ISPs

I was contacted a lot last week – asking for my response to this: Netflix Went Down for Users Across the World in Mysterious Major Outage, Following Net Neutrality Repeal Well that’s an amazing coincidence. Just last Monday was the day the Donald Trump Administration officially ended the Barack Obama Administration’s huge Internet power grab – executed under the rubric of the very awful idea | Read More »

Trump Rightly Demands End to All Trade Tariffs and Subsidies – of Everyone

We have for many years pointed out how un-free DC’s “free trade” has been. Now-President Donald Trump has done the same – for decades. DC’s warped definition of “free trade” – has nigh every other nation on the planet imposing all sorts of tariffs and import limits on our stuff. It has nigh every other nation subsidizing the daylight out of the products they bring | Read More »
