Go DADDy Pays a Just Price - SOPA

Go Daddy loses over 37,000 domains due to SOPA stance

Sic Semper
Hosting and domain registrar company Go Daddy has lost more than 37,000 domains in the past two days due to the company’s wishy-washy stance on the Stop Online Piracy Act.

Res Ipsa Loquitur
The fleeing domains comes as a result of the intense backlash from customers and Internet critics after Go Daddy appeared on an official list of companies supporting SOPA. The internet responded by staging a wide-spread boycott where people would switch their domains to another registrar, which Go Daddy initially dismissed as having little impact on their business. Now it seems that assessment wasn’t entirely accurate.

Although Go Daddy reversed their stance on SOPA, it wasn’t before 37,000 domains were transfer off of its service .. Sic semper tyrannis

I'm sick to death of threats like SOPA being hurled at us non-stop.   If you're unfamiliar with this piece of crap legislation— here, and here for some background.  Below are the perpetrators of this monstrosity, and yes, Republicans are in charge, and responsible.  All of them deserve to be primaried,  and thrown out of office.

The Stop Online Piracy Act was introduced by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) and was initially co-sponsored by Howard Berman (D-CA),   Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), Steve Chabot (R-OH), John Conyers (D-MI),Ted Deutch (D-FL), Elton Gallegly (R-CA), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Timothy Griffin (R-AR), Dennis A. Ross (R-FL), Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Lee Terry (R-NE). As of December 17, 2011, there were 31 sponsors.[65]

Crony capitalism not only is a pain in the national wallet, but products from crony capitalists pose a physical danger. Fisker Automotive — fronted by Democratic eco-millionaire Al Gore — received a half-billion federal “loan” 2 years ago to make luxury electric cars.

Not only was this a sweetheart from the Obama administration, but the deal financed the manufacture of unsafe electric lemons. [Don Surber continued]

What a way to begin the new year. A proper prosecutor ought have no trouble jailing a whole passel of Obamunists.

A Fine Lesson

Bless us Lord for this thy 7'1" gift ...


Forgive my exuberance over something nobody out there cares about— but wow.  Maryland had never had a 7' player before who could do anything on the court but look silly, so Alex Len is major.  Bear in mind, this is only his second college game ever. (His FG % is 80) 

Baby smugglers



You'll be reading soon about a North Carolina man, evidently active duty military, caught at a Texas airport with military grade explosives.    Now, I do not fault the TSA for detaining him; am heartened but their dilligence, in fact.  However, since his name is  Trey Scott Atwater,  and not Muhammad bin Atwater, and holiday traveling with his extended family, I'm guessing he wasn't up to anything worse than doing what any red blooded American would do, given the chance—   latch onto to a reserve of C-4.  For removing stumps,  and just making loud noises with his mates.  Nevertheless, and especially with all these useful idiot Occupy yuppies wandering about, we can be thankful for citizen agents, like the lad below.  He's obviously taken it upon himself to find stuff being smuggled.  In this instance, our man discovered a young lady trying to kidnap two newborns by stuffing them in her knees (rollover) .  Clap Calp Clap  Well done sir, well done,
