Patent Reform Act

The Daily Caller writes about this as if it's a good thing.
"The patent system overhaul, which passed the House in June, will change the system from “first-to-invent” to “first-inventor-to-file,” which much of the developed world has been using for years, as it prevents inventors from laying claim to a patent after the fact."
Because, of course, the rest of the developed world is so much better off than the U.S.
Gee whiz Mom!, all the other kids are doing it!
After six grueling years, the mighty Senate has now passed the bill.
So, let me get this straight, Mr. Kearns, who invented the intermittent wiper circuit, used on every car on the face of the planet these days, presented to Ford Motor Company, poo pooed by FMC, stolen by FMC, sued by Mr. Kearns in 1978, case finally won in...1990, WOULD NOW BE SHIT OUT OF LUCK.
Well ain't that nice.

This caught my eye:

"Leahy’s partner on the bill, Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith, noted the bill’s job-creating potential."
Ruh Roh, someone's been nipping Obama's Kool-aid.
Job creating...Really? I'd love for Representative Smith (R) to 'splain that one to me.
They really do think we are beyond stupid don't they.
I can phrase this no better way than the Mighty Borepatch; 
Vote Them Out
All of Them
