With the number of people they have, why would they need robots?

Well, you can park a robot at a place and wait for an enemy to come before activating it rather deploying a unit there with all the logistics involved...

Supreme Court Strikes Down Patents on Human Genes:

"The Supreme Court said human genes isolated by scientists may not be
patented, ruling unanimously today in a dispute weighing intellectual property
associated with genes known to detect early signs of breast and ovarian cancer."

Its more serious than just owning your genes, doctors cannot treat those cancers because their research and cures are patented.

While it is true that under those patents, the labs that once owned the genes were able to study the cancers in great detail, they do not share their research data.

Another weird patent that has been going on was on numbers.

Quality clones and organ farms make good sources of profits you know.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Techniques make long term profits, but they decline over time. Also, technique patent is hard to enforce.

Patenting the organ or DNA is different. See how much money Monsato makes from lawsuits?

Although it's clear anyone who tries to patent DNA or genetic coding should be strangled..

Question : Are they really going to hire repo men? And how would the repo men actually repossess the cancer cells?

Mob Stoolie: Il Cosa Nostra Wanted UAVs for Hits:

"The US military may hold the crown for most people whacked from an
autonomous weapons platform but it is far from the first to try remotely-piloted
death machines. According to one former mafioso, the Graviano family was testing
radio-controlled, explosives-laden kamikaze craft for the handling of its staffing
issues two decades ago."

Just kill the cancer cells.......



Immunotherapy: Four Companies on the Verge of Cancer-Treatment Breakthroughs:

"During the last decade, companies have spent billions of dollars in research to
find new ways of treating the deadly disease of cancer. The difficult part is that
cancer can come in a variety of different forms and can affect different parts of the
body. This can make finding effective treatments very challenging. However,
there is one promising treatment program that may soon create a lot of hope
among medical professionals. That program is called immunotherapy."

Google tested out their "balloon internet" at New Zealand. This was part of their "Project Loon", which attempts to provide cheap internet access to people in isolated areas all around the world. The test seems to have been pretty small scale, though, seeing as one guy only got to use the internet for like 15 minutes before the balloon(s) got too far away. Hopefully when this is formally launched they'll have enough balloons all over the world so that doesn't happen.
