  1. Friendly reminder to those inclined to forget: patent law is policy, patent law is political, and while parts of the system may be less “partisan” than others, there is an undeniable (and predictable) alignment of interests among far right win gers and the we@lthy wanna-be “stakeholders” who would like to wind the clock back to the free-for-all days of State Street.

    Of course there’s exceptions to every statistical correlation. There are lef ty types who struggle with the basic issues and facts relating to subject matter eligibility, and probably somewhere out there is a right w in ger who doesn’t. In many cases, the lefties who “struggle” are compromised because they’re trying to keep the logic patenting and “do it on a computer” work coming through the door. How do I know that? Because I know these people personally and I know what their business looks like and I’ve talked to them about these issues face-to-face (when it’s harder to hide the truth).

    Anyway, all this is merely to state the obvious: I’m not going to stop talking about the connections or the larger policy issues (e.g., “jobs!”) until (1) the connections don’t exist and (2) the larger policy issues are no longer being brought up as excuses to turn the patent s p i g 0ts back up to 11 (or 15).

    Lastly, I’ll just add this: with every passing day, more or more patent attorneys at the big firms on the coasts are spending more of their time doing pro b0 no work helping p0 0r people, imm igrants and “sus picious looking” citizens survive while a c0 rr upt wh ite n@ ti0 nalist administration tries to eliminate them. News is news and occasionally f0lks will receive important legal news from a blog they read regularly as opposed to some other source.

    1. “In many cases, the lefties who “struggle” are compromised because they’re trying to keep the logic patenting and “do it on a computer” work coming through the door. How do I know that?

      Suprise suprise, the practicing of lawl is now a business, and that has corrupted more than one person in that same business. More news at 11.

      “Lastly, I’ll just add this: with every passing day, more or more patent attorneys at the big firms on the coasts are spending more of their time doing pro b0 no work helping p0 0r people, imm igrants and “sus picious looking” citizens survive .”

      Virtue signal received. We all consider these people super virtuous.

      “while a c0 rr upt wh ite n@ ti0 nalist administration tries to eliminate them”

      I didn’t realize that the right wing death squads had formed just yet. When did this happen? Did that happen yesterday?

      1. 6,

        It is simpler than that: lefties are compromised because the entire business of patents deals with personal property (by definition, NOT belonging to the commune.

        As I have long pointed out, this rather direct cognitive dissonance creates the ongoing angst of Malcolm, and he really should simply get into a line of work in which he can believe in the basic nature of the work product produced.

        1. In all for srsness though anon, I presume he has some dependents because otherwise he would have sold his house, his car, etc. and gone to follow Jesus Christ, ahem, sorry, I meant gone to serve the poor, while not following the big j.

      1. bro can you believe this guy called Milo speaking (in a riot zone made by lefties) and “event”

        The big event was that your cowardly sniveling r@ cist h@ter fled the scene.

        And then snowflake Drumpf had a sad. Boo hoo hoo!

        Do let everyone know when you’re in town, 6. I know some women who will show you a real good time.

        By the way: did you notice a lot of “boomers” in that crowd? Me neither. I did see some Ph.D.s and lawyers, though. Go figure.

        1. “The big event was that your cowardly sniveling r@ cist h@ter fled the scene.”

          Um of course he did when they start ri ot ing. He’s a ho mo j ew, and you never know when the Big Gots on the antifa/lefty side will k ill a ho mo je w or someone else at the event. He’ll face any of them on yonder debate stage but none of those “super strong and courageous” lefties will face him. You know, because they’re totally not co wa rdly!

          “r@ cist h@ter”

          Correct, he ha-tes raycysts like you.

          “Do let everyone know when you’re in town, 6. I know some women who will show you a real good time.”

          Oh really? You know some mi sand rists? Color me surprised! I bet you know a lot of them don’t you?

          “By the way: did you notice a lot of “boomers” in that crowd? Me neither. I did see some Ph.D.s and lawyers, though. ”

          Course not. Boomers just get the kidd os all wound up via ide ological mind control and let them spin off wildly into the world creating ch aos de str ucti on, and literally (not figuratively) terr oriz ing people.

          Anyway, you seem to be leaving out that “the scene” included numerous acts of van dali sm/ri oting behavior. Or did you not hear about that yet? Wonde r if we’ll see some jail time handed out? Wonder if Berkeley gets to keep those ju icy federal funds after they had their po po practically stand down?

          Also, did you make a donation to his priv fund? Think of the min oriti es!

          1. literally (not figuratively) terr oriz ing people.

            Except Drumps little stepchild bragged about not having feelings.

            I guess he has those “chicken” type feelings that you and your bff “anon” seem to exude, 6.

            Go ahead, you two. Say something “politically incorrect” to Dennis about his wife or kids. Impress everybody. Show everyone what your beautiful future looks like. I bet it’s really fresh and new, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

            Go ahead, you two big strong men.

            1. “Except Drumps little stepchild bragged about not having feelings.”

              Mmmm, maybe I should have been more clear. Drump’s little step children have women folk who definitely do have emotions. And further Drump’s little step children do have emotions for their little women (and fams too).

              So, for instance, when little sweetie/cutie3.14159265359 gets sprayed with mace during an interview with a lefty a large number of white knights suddenly appear. Ready and willing to defend yonder maiden under assault. This happened last night on yonder news.

              “Go ahead, you two. Say something “politically incorrect” to Dennis about his wife or kids. Impress everybody.”

              Why would I do that? And how would it impress anyone other than you and your Big Got friends?

            2. I guess he has those “chicken” type feelings that you and your bff “anon” seem to exude, 6.

              ?

              You are doing that “one bucket” thing again…

  2. In light of the recent spate of eliminations, a helpful guide for Malcolm:

    a) Does the post have something directly to do with patent law?
    b) Is the post more than merely feelings and whining?
    c) Is any ad hominem more than a) or b)?
    d) If a) through c) can each be answered in the affirmative, then and only then hit “Post Comment.”

      1. Except it does not, Ben.

        You really need to pay better attention.

        Sure, I will engage in ad hominem and biting sar ca sm, but mine is on point (both to the topic of patent law and to the foibles of whom I am skewering).

        1. mine is on point

          As I’ve said before, “anon,” Dennis and I have discussed your men t@l health issues already, with this particular issue being one of your major maladies.

          I’m happy to have those discussions with Dennis again, in case he’s forgotten (I’m quite sure that he hasn’t). In any event, it’s all right in the open for everyone to see.

        2. You post does not ‘have something directly to do with patent law’.

          No amount of hand waving and insults would persaude a reasonable observer otherwise.

          Whatever self serving explanation you could provide for why your post qualifies as on point with patent law would allow enough wiggle room for MM’s rants to qualify under ‘a’.

          Why don’t you just take you own advice already?

          1. Lol / except not.

            Hey Ben, your past “upvoting” of ALL things Malcolm back in the DISQUS days clearly established your lack of ability to see this in any sense of objectivity.

    1. “anon”, you seem to be lab 0 ring under the del usion that when a comment of mine is deleted that it bothers me.

      It doesn’t. I know the same doesn’t apply to you (because you whine about it incessantly). Please stop projecting.

      The deal is: I type fast, I archive everything, and there’s a million more opinions queued up. I’ll post them all when I feel like it.

      [shrugs]

      Also, you’re an incredible hyp 0 crite and your nar cissism is off the charts. Apply those rules to yourself and maybe I’ll give one micr0-ounce of consideration towards forgetting your endless years of dis g usting behavior here.

      1. “anon”, you seem to be lab 0 ring under the del usion that when a comment of mine is deleted that it bothers me.

        I labor under no such belief.

        I already know that you care nothing at all but your own myopic world view and the tired and trite script from which you blight this board.

        Happy Eleven year anniversary of doing exactly that.

      2. “Also, you’re an incredible hyp 0 crite and your nar cissism is off the charts. ”

        Could be true, but I think we can both agree that psyc hol ogists really do need to look into the mental disorder that causes p ath olo gical em pathy/altru ism. Oh look there, my google tells me that psyc holog ists are looking into it. Took them long enough. Many articles are available but here’s one.

    1. And prepare for the endless v@pid statements to the effect that he’s “principled” and “respects the Constitution.”

      He’s a Scalia-worshipper is what he is. That means he’s a reactionary social conservative and his “principles” are the principles of that rich old white guy who doesn’t understand why “the blacks” have Black History Month but he doesn’t have Jimmy Buffet History Month.

    2. Personally, I think the Dems should filibuster for one year, which is about the time since Mr. Scalia passed away. I think whoever was in office should’ve had the ability to nominate a justice and have that justice acted upon. The Reps made up this rule.

      1. They really do need to make filibuster be what it was back in the old days. If you want to hold up all the gubmit business over one issue then by golly go ahead and filibuster. Otherwise knock the faux “filibuster” nonsense off. And I’ve said that even during Obama’s term.

        1. I am hoping that Judge Gorsuch’s nomination will provide occasion for the filibuster’s abolition, but if it were to continue, I agree that you should have to talk. There should be some personal cost to the filibusteror, to make sure that it is not invoked too easily.
