You mean publicly accusing someone of something without evidence, that scandal?

Companies and individuals seeking FDA approval for their medical devices have ALREADY begun the process of PROTECTING their inventions with patents.

Any trade SECRET is no longer a secret once an inventor applies for patent protection.(patent applications are PUBLISHED for anyone to examine)

Whatever secrets are in a product ARE PROTECTED from anyone gaining financial benefit from using another's trade secrets (for a number of years).

This is just another government scam to MONITOR people.

Leaking trade secrets is not the same thing
as whistle blowing. It's corporate espionage
and Republicans should be the first ones to
protect the rights of corporations, seeing as how
that's where they get all their really big bribes.

Was that all just another Democrat lie?

Between Bill Clinton and Obama that Oval office is getting awfully sticky.

Democrats like to woller in human waste. I know Michelle sure did with that garden of hers. LOL
Every insult that your petty pea-brain can conjure up will never ease the misery and suffering that you are feeling as you watch this great historic President lead this great nation.
Allow me to poke my finger in your eye once again by telling you that your hollow rhetoric is viewed as a pathetic little mental midget yelling at the sky… we won and it makes my day to see right-wing idiots like you in so much pain due to losing to us.
