    Are you saying it is not possible to mistreat somebody because they are rich?

    Snyder, of course. But he's big and powerful (and rich, and Republican....) so that's just not a big deal.

    You know this might be why most car companies are naming their cars with letters and numbers.

    It makes the car sound ridiculous, but they are not offending anybody.

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    A longer article on the story:

    You Know What’s More Unbelievable Than Losing Lois Lerner’s Emails? Losing Emails of SIX MORE IRS Employees!

    The move affects six registrations and was brought about by a petition from five Native Americans. The office found that "a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging in connection with respondent’s services during the relevant time frame of 1967-1990."
    Wow, 5 people is a 'substantial composite'. I think we can find 5 people that find anything disparaging or offensive, Including the president. Do they really want to go down that road?

    So rich people shouldn't be protected when the government abuses its power?
