Call To Action - Six-Degrees-Of-Separation E-mail Campaign

CALL TO ACTION -- "SIX-DEGREES-OF-SEPARATION" E-MAIL CAMPAIGN = Benefiting American Taxpayers For The Scientific Discoveries Of Basic Research They Have Financed -- (ONLY 5 MINUTES NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE)

We take great pride in our Six-Degrees-Of-Separation E-mail campaigns to America's decision makers such as President Obama which, with only a few computer keyboard key strokes, can be sent by each of our members (1) to the decision maker, and (2) to all of the member's friends and acquaintances requesting them to do the same in an unending chain.

Accordingly, we also take great pride that each of our recommendations has been approved unanimously at one of our meetings or, at most, received only one dissent (in which case we say there was a "consensus" rather than "unanimity").

The following Six-Degrees-Of-Separation E-mail campaign to President Obama on the referenced subject was approve unanimously at our 11/9/2011 meeting.

If you agree with the recommended E-mail to President Obama that appears below, please --

(1) send the already-prepared e-mail to President Obama at http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact -- which will require (A) inputting your name, an e-mail address and a ZIP code, (B) selecting from the pull-down "subject" menu "economy" under "I Have A Policy Comment," and (C) pasting into the box provided the message to President Obama that appears below. [It is also recommended that you select a salutation = "Dr." from the pull-down menu before your first name and that you check the box at the end for "Contact me - a response is requested" -- both suggestions in order to maximize the chances that the message will actually be read.]

(2) send to all your friends and acquaintances an already-prepared e-mail that comprises everything below the set of asterisks that follows this paragraph -- so that, through no more than six degrees of separation to 100% of the American population, we reach everyone in a cascading chain.

Dear Friends,

I have been requested to participate in the referenced "call to action" and request that you participate as well.

The campaign is based on the fact that there are NO MORE THAN SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION between us and 100% of the American electorate.

And that, on important occasions, we can send to all of our friends and acquaintances an already-prepared e-mail (1) for them to send to America's decision maker(s) to influence governmental policy, and (2) for them to send to all of their friends and acquaintances to do the same in an unending chain.

The reason for the campaign is contained in the already-prepared e-mail for President Obama that appears below.

If you agree with the proposal, please --

(1) hit your e-mail forward button and put the e-mail addresses of all your friends and acquaintances into the address section so that, through no more than six degrees of separation to 100% of the American population, we reach everyone in a cascading chain.

(2) send to President Obama the already-prepared e-mail that appears below at http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact -- which will require (A) inputting your name, an e-mail address and a ZIP code, (B) selecting from the pull-down "subject" menu "economy" under "I Have A Policy Comment," and (C) pasting the following message into the box provided. [It is also recommended that you select a salutation = "Dr." from the pull-down menu before your first name and that you check the box at the end for "Contact me - a response is requested" -- both suggestions in order to maximize the chances that the message will actually be read.]

Benefiting American Taxpayers For The Scientific Discoveries Of Basic Research They Have Financed

President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President:

As you are probably aware, the U.S. Government funds an incredible amount of basic research through the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Health, the Defense Department, etc.

As you are probably also aware, the U.S. Government does not patent many of the discoveries that result from this research. Instead, companies both U.S.- and foreign-based are free to capitalize on these discoveries and, more importantly, they are free to conduct manufacturing based on these discoveries in low-wage countries such as China.

Accordingly, it is recommended that you announce a new policy accompanied by legislation, if necessary - (A) that the U.S. Government will patent all discoveries resulting from basic research that it funds, and (B) that the U.S. Government will require licensees, whether U.S.- or foreign-based, to conduct in the United States any manufacturing operations utilizing the technology.

It is recognized that many of the discoveries resulting from research conducted by the Defense Department are kept secret, much like the famous Coca Cola formula is a "trade secret." However, it should be a small matter to provide that when defense secrets finally enter the public domain, they will automatically be subject at that time to a new patent owned by the U.S. government that will become part of the program described above.

Most importantly, in addition to vigorous enforcement of the U.S. Government's patents and trade secrets under the existing provisions of the TRIPS Agreement of the 153-member World Trade Organization (WTO) which includes China, the U.S. should insist that (A) every WTO country will ban imports of goods made with the U.S. government's technology without a license, and (B) imports of other goods by WTO countries from countries that use the U.S. government's technology without a license to produce goods for internal use or export to non-WTO countries, will be subject to seizure to pay both for the royalties that should have been paid on the goods used internally or exported to non-WTO countries and also for the lost wages of American workers.

Thank you for your consideration.
