I'm always stunned by the fact that someone can be appointed to such a high level in government and not understand the basic fundamentals of their job. Does the Bush administration really want to mess up the US economy as much as it has messed up Iraq? Are they doing these things on purpose?

This is typical of the past few administrations. Look at the top 5 people running the PTO and you will quickly understandtand why our patent aystema dn the PTO are such a mess.

The worst aspect of the developing legislation is the attempt to give the PTO substantive rule-making authority. Considering the follies they've put us all through with mere "procedural" rule-making authority, imagine what they'd do with carte blanche.
