    Maybe senility is setting in. I mean, the man always came across as half a loon, but lately he's just acting like a crazy old codger.

    You kids! Get off my cyber lawn!

    Sucks to be you, you crazy loony fuck.

    Not to defend Paul, but something has bothered me about this story. I think we discussed it in the general Ron Paul thread way back. I recall there being some "language" in the Paul fan's agreement that made Paul think that they wanted to be paid...and that might've confused the ol' codger. Probably something like..."Yeeeeeah, ok....we agree to give Ron Paul the rights to the site and it's membership...EVEN THOUGH, we've done so much hard work with the site that...with it's membership and advertising, it's worth around $250K."

    But honestly, not only do I not trust Ron Paul...but I also don't trust his moonbat fanboys. And if the site truly is worth upwards of $250K...it's hard to believe they would be willing to just give it up for free because Paul wants it back, even after forgetting to pay the domain bill. I would not be surprised to hear that his fans wanted at least something, and Paul refused and went to the UN (which brings this story to a whole 'nother level of ironic stupidity of Ron Paul) in an effort to essentially steal it back. You'd think a simple phone call would be enough to say, "Nonono...wait Ron...you don't need to file a complaint...we've already agreed to give it back to you at no charge".

    I dunno...whatever the case, I just hope his son, Rand, stays the hell away from him and doesn't start giving him political "pointers" and advice.

    So he failed to pay for the name and lost it.

    Fans bought it to keep it going.

    They offered it to him for free.

    He says they tried to sell it to him but back
    when he still owned it.

    Then he tried to sue them after they offered
    to give it to him.

    This story is stupid.

    You missed the part where the would-be savior of freedom ran to the fucking UN. In my mind, that's the best detail.

    First, I don't really think the 77 year old Ron Paul is really on the front lines of running websites and paying for domain names, etc. He, as he has a habit of doing, probably let some idiot run it for him. Jesse Benton was his campaign manager and was a buffoon. It's probably some lackey that Benton hired that started all this shit.
    Second, I tend to trust what the fan site says. If Ron Paul asked his fans to sell their homes and move to Texas, they probably would. Giving him a website is probably not that big of a deal.

    Well I find the WIPO guilty of having an acronym that sounds like a toilet paper brand.

    Our findings have the same force of law.

    More importantly, how the fuck did a UN agency end up in charge of who gets domain names on the Internet?

    Just like with everything else, the UN is really in charge of it. The world basically just hands them a toy steering wheel and tells them that they're driving the car.

    I trust Ron Paul 100% more than I trust the current piece of shit that's in the White House.



    They can have my domain name when they pry it from my cold dead server.

    They just latched onto him because they like what he had to say. Their support wasn't based on his voting record or anything really substantive. It's a true cult of personality.

    Best part about all of that was when his fanboys would go around posting that pic of the candidate's houses and showed Ron Paul had just a little tiny 1,300 sq ft, 40-year old ranch and all of the other candidates had multiple properties and mega-mansions. Yet, when you dig a little deeper (what Paulbots never seemed to be good at doing), you find out that he indeed, did own multiple properties and homes...including a huge plot of land where it appeared he was building homes for his family. He's as much of a phony as Obama and alot of these other politicians.

    Still, to me, it's like comparing horseshit and dogshit. As is the case with alot of these politicians.
