Reading on etsy.com, it is scary to me that so many people don't even know about this. My co-worker, who is very democratic and prides herself on being up to speed in politics, does not know what I'm talking about.
| yoursandi, I'm with you. It used to be that America was the one place where a person's individuality was celebrated, excellence was rewarded, and we were responsible to and for ourselves. It is profoundly sad to see that we (or as those *in power* would have it) now aspire to mediocrity, dumb down our kids in school so they cannot think for themselves, and the only individuality that is celebrated is that which is deemed "okay." |
Wow... I'm apparently ready to rant tonight...

I see what this person is talking about as far as individuality. I see more and more students that can't learn in this "traditional" classroom setting we have created for our American children. More and more kids don't have ADHD. 2nd graders are not developmentally supposed to be able to sit for 3 hours without fidgeting! And let's talk about the effects of preservatives to our blood and body functions. I see right away that when I give my son sugary cereal he goes off the wall. When I give him less sugar and no preservative cereal, he is a normal four year old.
I'm done ranting for tonight. Thanks.
oh, wait, there is more...
| How are you going to prove that you did it first? |
First to trademark it?
By a raise of hands how many fashion designers have enough start-up capitol to trademark each and every pattern they have ever made?
By a show of hands how many mega-corporations for fashion have enough capitol to trademark each and every new pattern they find, the moment they find it?

|So now some big fashion house can claim they,and they alone ,conceived the idea of an A-line skirt and anyone making an A-line skirt is infringing? OK Maybe that's simplistic ,but it wouldn't shock me to see them try. Who will be in charge of policing the world or is this only to stifle those in the US. The government is out of control...hope and change my a$$|

Who are the idiots morons Pick the one that fits!!!
degenerates who came up with this crazy thing???
They need to be VOTED OUT of OFFICE!!! But we need NAMES!!!
We don't "necessarily" need names. Just vote out every incumbent. Then we can change the house and senate in one fell swoop. Two years after that we can change the rest of the administration.
Then we'll have to try to clean up the mess that they will leave behind...CPSIA, universal healthcare, cap and trade, the food safety bill if it passes and so many other things it boggles the mind.
