There’s always the mob. And these days, the media is very prominent among the mob, who either want someone hung or they want him sprung. And part of what the Department of Justice is about and the attorney general is about, is ignoring the mob.William Barr
I have a question for Attorney General William Barr: Are you, your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and American citizens in general, part of “the mob“? If not, who decides who is in the mob and on what basis? You and you alone?
Can (should) common sense gun control measures and the Second Amendment coexist?
Why should Americans have unlimited mass access to so many guns, assault weapons, and ammunition?
Can we make real progress to reduce crime, incarceration, and recidivism?
Has the the principle of innocent until proven guilty been irreparably eroded in the online and me-too eras?

How to get help with a patent if you’re a first-time inventor
The first thing I would do is identify all the local startup business incubators and/or co-working facilities in your community, especially the ones that seem to be the best fit to your idea. Usually these places have an open-door policy that allows people to come in with new ideas that have the potential to develop into new products and businesses. They’ve got their finger on the pulse of all the local attorneys who provide patent services, and in some cases you can get a sit-down session with one of these attorneys at no cost. See how far you can get without having to spend any money.
Another thing you should do is attend entrepreneur networking events and do some social networking with the entrepreneurs and staff because they’ve been down this path before and they will know who to contact and how to proceed.
