Hail to the Redskins: Bowser and DC get their bluff called
The Redskins, Washington’s NFL team, want a new stadium. Jack Kent Cooke Stadium was opened in 1997, so by the time any new one opens, it’ll be at least 20 years old. Currently they’re in Maryland, but are open to sites in DC and in Virginia, the latter being where the Redskins have their headquarters*. This has put DC in a bind between politics and | Read More »
Tech at Night: The fight against the Redskins has come to censorship
The difference between Republicans and Democrats is clear, and that’s why it’s important to vote and vote for the Republican. Right now the Democrats are on a psychotic jihad against the Washington Redskins, and it’s gone from arbitrarily stripping a trademark, now to open intimidation attempts in California and even brazen censorship plans in Washington. Vote for the Republican. Even if it’s a squish, vote | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Democrats get into the broadcast decency game
I’m old enough to remember 2001. Back in the early days of the Bush administration, the new Bush FCC took an active role in enforcing the decency rules that had gotten pretty much ignored under the Clinton administration. This enforcement culminated with the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, featuring Janet Jackson.
Democrats naturally were outraged. But, fast forward ten years, and now Democrats are talking about pushing their own broadcast decency preferences, against the Washington Redskins.

USPTO’s slurring of the 2nd Infantry Division must not stand
In 1972 the Washington Redskins registered their modern graphical logo, USPTO Registration Number 986668. In their Blackhorse v. Pro Football, Inc. decision, USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board decided it was disparaging at the time it was filed.
That’s interesting because the Second Infantry Division of the US Army has been using a red-skinned man in a feathered headdress for even longer, at least World War II, with a nickname of the “Indianhead Division” going back at least as far back as Korea.
USPTO’s implication of the Army engaging in a slur is wrong, and should not stand.

The Deadskins and The Death of Property Rights
Property Rights Thrown For A Loss! What inventor or entrepreneur is EVER going to trust the patent office, let alone come up with a new invention ever again?HT: Captain Capitalism Well, well, well, The Thinking People are once more offended. What’s new? They don’t like Anthropogenic CO2 pollution either. I therefore offend them by breathing. Judging from the recent PTO decision | Read More »
Clint Didier scores
I have been watching Clint Didier’s campaign for a while. He first caught my attention speaking at a candidates forum on January 16th. He spoke very powerfully, and was on target with his ideas. His message was raw, and rough around the edges. He has been speaking out against what is going on in DC, at Tea parties in Eastern Washington for months. ——- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbg9x6rf-eo&feature=related ——- | Read More »

Is it me or does it seem awfully quiet out there? I mean I tune into Hannity’s America after seeing posted somewhere that he was going to have additional information exposed about Obama, radical associations, etc… So what does he have?

One more reason to walk away from the Washington Post:
Many of us savored last night’s NFL Hall of Fame induction. For thousands in Canton, and millions around the DC area and the world, time slowed down a bit last night as we watched Darrell Green and Art Monk enter the Hall of Fame.This morning, I went to washingtonpost.com to continue savoring the moment.It appears I’ll have to go elsewhere.
