Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

President Obama had a filibuster-proof majority in the senate and house for 2 years. "But it's an election year" is a remarkably weak excuse for any policies he didn't change when he had the chance.

I'm not a Republican or a fan of Mr. Bush either, by the way. I don't like *either* of the dominant political parties in America, since both seem to believe they can and should run my life for me. I'm debt free, while they've run our country deeply into debt, the idiots - they never met a piece of pork they didn't embrace - and now they claim the right to impose punitive taxes if I don't deal with the corporations that pay for their sponsorship.

Mr. Jefferson's vision of limited government looks better every day.
