@reagan.com - The Conservative Email Provider

Quote:
Reagan son launches conservative email service

Michael Reagan, the son of former American president Ronald Reagan, is launching "the very first conservative email provider".

Mr Reagan says that popular email providers such as Hotmail, Google, Yahoo! and Apple support leftwing causes and are "hurting" America. In a message on his website he said: "People who believe in true Reagan Conservative Values are unwittingly supporting the Obama, Pelosi and Reid liberal agenda!"

Those who sign up for the Reagan email service, which costs $34.95 per year, will receive an email address that ends with @reagan.com and early subscribers will also get a DVD of Ronald Reagan’s 1987 “tear down this wall speech”

...

However, Reagan email users might not be getting much for their money. The terms and conditions page for the service warns: "You are using the Services AT YOUR OWN RISK and we are under no obligation to provide you with any support, error corrections, updates, upgrades, bug fixes and/or enhancements of the Service."
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technolog...l-service.html


All you true conservatives out there sign up now! A bargain at only $34.95 per year more than those evil free liberal Hotmail and Gmail accounts, and no pesky bureaucracy like service updates and customer support to get in the way of winning back The White House in 2012.

(Has April 1st come around early?)

I support this 100%! Now it will be easier to know which family members and acquaintances to ignore.

And you get a DVD of his "Tear down this wall!" speech that can be found for free on Youtube! Totally worth it!

I'm thinking of starting an @vegetable.com service. I figure I can get the Reagan and Shiavo crowds.

Does the reagan.com service forget your e-mail shortly after you receive it?

Bet on it. No amount of cashing in is too crass. I suggest digging up his father's corpse and letting the True Conservative faithful pay to spend a tender night alone with it.

I wish I had a link to the Family Guy scene with Reagan giving that speech.

I can't wait to see screenshots, I bet it looks like circa 1995 Hotmail

You and me both. Don't forget- Jerry Falwell and W will probably be in heaven too. Who in their right mind would want to be in such a place?

I have zero belief in heaven, and yet somehow I believe this even less.

How can a man honestly manipulate the memory of his own father so willingly. Disgusting.

I'm no fan of Reagan either, I just think this is beyond appalling, I couldn't use my fathers image in such an unamerican culture wars way.

But if you pay your special introductory $34.95 and get your DVD you don't have to visit "the Obama, Pelosi and Reid liberal agenda" supporting YouTube to get your fix "of the Greatest Conservative of all." It makes perfect sense!

In any case both of those services offered significantly more than just email.
