We can play the blame game on our politicians, but America is full of "stingy" individuals that hold patents to things, that have not been produced or implemented. Thee only patent I was ever schooled about, was the guy who invented seat belts and made millions. I don't even know his name (maybe Napoleon Hill and "Think and Grow Rich"). You bet the US Government Patent Office, is full of ideas and inventions, that sometimes are bought out by the Auto Industry or Big Oil. Let's not blame the big guns either, just like politicians. Americans are talented, from Music 101 to Physics 101. Even high school graduates come up with ideas to simplify processes, from self-cooked brownies in Home Economics to brilliant poetry in English class, or tire gauges in Auto Mechanics. Kids are not just connecting on their iPhones, but their being educated with know-how and imagination. We get "greedy" though, and say: "once I win the lottery, I'll start a canning factory for my awesome chili recipe (there was a movie about it, and the youthful cook, saved the town from bankruptcy)." He put his idea into the pot, for a greater America. We're being "stingy" with our own ideas and inventions. Here's one I invented with no patent, but put the word out. Maybe you heard of the "Free Play" radio? You generated electricity with a crank. I adapted it to: "The Free Drip Coffee Maker" for camping and emergencies, and shock-free brewing. It's just a rechargeable battery. But I put the word out, in case I died, to make life easier for the World. I even worked on the cure for cancer, or the zygote and normal cell division. Meaning the cure for cancer is perfect cancer, not abnormal cell division. I also found genes mutate, and the cancer DNA particle could mutate to be the cure for cancer... adapt and overcome. Quit being "stingy" with your ideas. The US Government does know what is patented and not in use! We should treat this like the government land, that Oil companies got temporary deeds to, and did nothing with the land. Till Barack Obama stepped in... the same holds true for patents. Time the President rewrite "The Declaration of Independence" on royal parchment, as a valuable historic document. You can write ingenious letters also... be published and go down in history, like the poem: "Footprints" it's there I carried you. Best of luck. Don't be stingy.
