Conservative talk radio is once again just like the Republican Party.
when it comes to the patent office reneging on the Washington Redskin's trademark.
"Oooo!!! Ooo!!! Gee Joe I don't know about that. That 'MAY' lead somewhere! Ooooo! Oooo!!! Slippery slope!"
Thankfully I'm not as spineless as they are and I don't care to be fake nice to the "party across the aisle" in the hopes they may someday reciprocate my politeness.
The truth is it was 100% an Obama appointee ideologue's move and it was done 100% for political purposes.
This, in it of itself, does not particularly wreak any damage. Just a political hack with a government position abusing power. However, because leftists are idiots and really don't understand economics, they have no idea just how much economic damage they've potentially caused in turning the patent office political -
What inventor or entrepreneur is EVER going to trust the patent office, let alone come up with a new invention ever again?
Oh, I know, I know, big companies and big Pharma and big chemical companies will still apply for their patents and copyrights, but the next Edison, the next Gates, the next Ford? If they're conservative (or at least capitalists which they usually are) why should they trust the patent office now with their sweat and toil?
The true damage caused by this little political whining cry baby stunt is that a name that really only offends the professional offense-seekers has now completely undermined that concept of copyrights, patents, and intellectual property.
Enjoy that freaking decline.
