Nancy Pelosi joins the ranks of Al Gore, who invented the Internet, Elizabeth 'there-is-nobody-in-this-country-who-got-rich-on-their-own Warren and Barry you-didnt-build-that-yourself Obama. She is now officially one of the illuminati who knows for sure that only the Government invents stuff (thanks to your individual involuntary contributions to the Federal Treasury).
See this iPhone? Federal research invented it. Not to denigrate Steve Jobs role she noted that he did a good idea designing it and putting it together.
So, got that, Steve Jobs? You did a good idea butt all your technology are belong to us.

Sad that most of americas nightmares occur while we are wide awake......
When do we spend the time and money to track these criminals like dogs dragged thier a##es into court prosecute and convict?
Several government agencies were tasked to help people like the Dept. of Agriculture helped farmers. The small business administration helped create small business. The dept. of commerce, FAA, USDA... were supposed to help people. Social Security was supposed to be private and help the subscribers. Now everything belongs to the pirates in congress.
Actually, (American) Ham Radio operators invented it. The first versions were simple “repeaters” that had a receiver and a transmitter connected to each other, and simply repeated out whatever the receiver heard. Often, these were placed on high locations — tall buildings or mountain tops — to extend range. Most advances in the art of radio were pioneered by hams. Later, commercial interests and government picked them up. Sorry, Nancy.
Pelosi has to be one of the most miserable rich women in the entire country.
Why be miserable when you can be an elected progressive scumbag and make other people miserable?
This woman belongs in a strait jacket, not roaming the streets (let alone the halls of Congress).
Her brain cells must have died at an early age.
Wasn’t there a provision in 10-289 where any new product development had to be from a government laboratory?

Pinging dayglored, Shadow Ace, and ThunderSleeps to this thread because a Democrat is claiming all technological development as a government creation. . . Including all smartphones.

Cell phones were invented by those geniuses in Israel...
Socialists love to use euphemisms - society when they mean government,liberal or progressive" when they mean socialist, and so on. What is needed, Im sure you will agree, is a word which falls between the government, on the one hand, and the individual, on the other. The private sector is a coinage which was intended to sound bad compared to the public sector. The word we need actually exists in the language, tho the socialists have labored to evade its proper usage:SOME writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.It is not the individual, alone, nor is it the government, which accomplishes things in America and the world.
Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil . . .- Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)
I, Pencil is an article written in 1958 by Leonard E. Read. The burden of the article is how diffuse are the inputs to make a simple item like a pencil. Of course a particular company - Eberhard Faber, in the example instance - made the pencil. But Mr. Eberhard and Mr. Faber did not simply speak the pencil into existence; the company has to have buildings housing machinery, and workers to operate the machines. But beyond that, the Eberhard Faber workers have to have food, shelter, and normal amenities - including those required by their families.
And the same is true of the vendors who supply Eberhard Faber with the machinery they require, and all the obvious materials - wood, graphite, rubber, and the ferrule material and the enamel. All those vendors have their own equipment, workers, and supply chain. And in all cases the workers need food, shelter, and normal amenities. So although the pencil certainly does not exist without Eberhard Faber, society - people working cooperatively and voluntarily - together to make the pencil.
It is perfectly true that Steve Jobs had a lot of help making the iPhone. It is also true, however, that the role of the government in the process was, while not nonexistent, very easy to overstate. Ms. Pelosi herself, in all her efforts in Congress over the course of decades, never - I venture to say - lifted a finger specifically with the objective of furthering the development of the iPhone as such. Steve Jobs, and not any government factotum, had the vision - say rather, labored to create the vision - of the iPhone. He then enlisted cooperation from many others - chip makers, researchers, designers - to give that vision concrete, readily producible form. He then proceeded to convince a great many people to pay to obtain an iPhone.
And the government, certainly Nancy Pelosi, undertook none of the risk of the entire venture. The governments contributions, such as they were, were in comparison utterly unfocused and unfruitful.
Agree all of the above fall into the dead brain cell scope.
Will this affect Silicon Valley’s funding of the Dems? Naaaah.
Democrat Motto: “We’re not happy till you’re not happy.”
Both of them.
