    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (Wednesday morning) canceled six federal trademark registrations for the name of the Washington Redskins after ruling that the name is “disparaging to Native Americans.”

    “We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered,” the board wrote in its opinion.

    WOW - this from the same guys that awarded them that protection years ago.

    It's always been my perspective that, from a point of national security, they think its better to use everyone else's oil first and leave the US's until last.

    RIQ-However your assumption is that the Government needs to tax people to get money to spend. Not true. They are more than capable of printing just exactly what they need and no more. We have such a thing as a debt ceiling that can serve as a corollary. Why not fire all the IRS people and just print the money. Print as much as you need subject to "print" ceilings. We'll know when we've gone too far when we have inflation. Those who have the most in assets will suffer the most in loss of purchasing power.... When/if they get pissed the will take it out on the politicians.

    RIQ - Do I have fears of "others corrupting their society"?

    Facts assumed not in evidence.

    Well, this has been debated for centuries. And the one side of the debate always points to those with no "stake" in the game using the voting right to enrich themselves at the expense of those with a "stake" in the game. If you can't see that happening to a larger and larger degree, then you are blind.

    One old argument was that there would always be a huge proportion of "land owners" so the "city dwellers" would never get the upper hand. Well those guys citing such never anticipated the mechanization of agricultural and the movement to the city of lots of folks, many of whom turned out to be less than industrious.

    Loon - Seriously? How many people do you think actually own gold bullion. Heck 57% of people retiring don't even have $50,000 plus their house. My guess is less that 1-2% own any kind of PM other than the wedding ring on their finger or their necklace.

    RIQ - So you think immigration to America prior to the founding of the Constitution was an "Invasion"? Or do you think immigration to America after such was an "Invasion"? You think my Grandparents who came legally and under a system that authorized immigration were invaders? And you think they compare, HOW to those who cross the border illegally now? According to you, there is no distinction.

    Bob - we have representative government. People don't make laws. And sometimes it doesn't even matter if you have laws, the Executive Branch doesn't enforce them. We can have a lengthy discussion about ways people can influence their supposed representatives. Nevertheless, contrary to Rich's comment above, there are a great many who contribute absolutely ZERO to the country and who should have no say in voting for "representatives". Kinda like saying people that don't pay property taxes should have equal votes in school board elections. Of course, with liberals, everyone who shows should get a trophy.

    She dropped it into the middle of the Ocean. I think that's what's been giving false pings to the Malaysian Airlines searchers.

    Hmmm....I wonder if Ted Cruz will "voluntarily" provide a copy of his Birth Certificate.

    Wow....the US only did that 50 years ago...I don't think they even had "integrated circuits" then did they? Today, Elon Musk could probably send a rocket to the moon with his own money.

    Hmmm....maybe Obama should have kept the promise to bring the troops home earlier and not engaged in the "surge". I would have respected him for at least keeping one promise.

    IRS loses key Lerner emails. What a bunch of pure unadulterated baloney. You wonder why the email servers weren't confiscated the day she testified (oops failed to testify) in Congress. Answer: It's all a big show.

    No accomplishment is required. The Media will "suggest" that there has been accomplishment. It's more important not to have a "negative". Thus their reluctance to "stand for something" and to cut and run at the earliest possible convenient time.
