You, The People

The people have a right to petition government to do the right thing. There is a petition calling for the end of software patents at Whitehouse.gov. Give it a try. Their goal was 5000 signatures and they are up to 12000.

    It is rather clumsy, I’ll admit. Change “are against” to “am agaist”. I do not understand your “quilt” reference, though.

    “Now I, like Microsoft and most other high-tech successes, are against the software patents, too, but nothing is going to change until Congress gets into it.”

    what?
    your words are like a quilt.

    “Give it a try.”

    Back in high school I seem to remember that the way to get Congress to pass or change a law is to get one’s congressman or senator to sponsor the bill. Bending Obama’s ear is unlikely to do the trick.

    Now I, like Microsoft and most other high-tech successes, are against the software patents, too, but nothing is going to change until Congress gets into it.
