Here We Stand, At The Twilight’s Last Gleaming: “All Private Property Rights In The U.S. To Be Strategically Usurped”

Here We Stand, At The Twilight’s Last Gleam­ing” These words are writ­ten past the mid­night hour and I remem­ber back to March 23, 2010 when Oba­macare was signed into law at the 11th hour.  I remem­ber it well; I was up almost all night, as it was around 11 pm that it was fin­ished.  Nev­er […]

John Deere’s Weird Idea of ‘Ownership’

It’s offi­cial: John Deere and Gen­er­al Motors want to evis­cer­ate the notion of own­er­ship. Sure, we pay for their vehi­cles. But we don’t own them. Not accord­ing to their cor­po­rate lawyers, any­way. In a par­tic­u­lar­ly spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of cor­po­rate delu­sion, John Deere—the world’s largest agri­cul­tur­al machin­ery mak­er —told the Copy­right Office that farm­ers don’t own […]
