You know, I've just about had it... patents, greed, fraud, scams, ... Everybody wants to get rich *without* working. People feel entitled to it for simply thinking they are smarter than the average Joe. They think dreaming up an idea is worth millions. Trading a few stocks in our casino market place is a 'job'. Is this the American way? Screw this.
Look, when government intervenes to ensure the PEOPLE stay prosperous and healthy, everyone wins. When government leaves capitalism to go its merry way, those at the top win, and everyone else is 'milked' until they dry up -- then it all falls apart. Because, hey, guess what -- trickle down economics is BS.
I wish we could have common sense in DC. Common freaking sense. No more money. I don't see how we'll ever get to that point. It will require this country first fall into shambles, which we aren't far from. We're only being kept afloat artificially at this point.
There needs to be a new, non-violent revolution in this country. Consumerism. We, as consumers, have the ultimate power --- IF we would just choose to exercise it. YOU vote with your wallets. After all, the Supreme Court said money is speech, declaring corporations 'people' (how whack is that?). Choose carefully who you spend your money with. That is the only way to save this country.
BTW, Apple tends to fight patent challenges like this on behalf of developers. It won't go anywhere.
