More political "grandstanding," now from Senator Schumer. And look whose hosting this web site. What a surprise.

I also don't choose parties when it comes to this so-called "patent troll" nonsense. Like Schumer and Leahy, Congressman Goodlatte is equally in my "black book" for his nonsensical HR 3309 ("Innovation Act" my eye!). Simply a way to divert attention from the fact that Congress can't get its act together on more important matters like our $17 trillion debt, disastrous healthcare law, and just passing ANY federal budget that makes ANY sense.

Is this April Fools Joke?

First sentence:

"In what turned out not to be an April Fools' Day joke, . . . "

I don't think the part of this that is a joke is date dependent.

Is that a reference to Congressman Schumer?
