Post & Email suffers from too much success

Some web hosting plans limit the bandwidth (the total amount of information allowed to be transferred during a period of time) and when that’s exceeded, they either cut you off, or they charge you extra.

The Post & Email appears to have hit the bandwidth wall on a cheap plan.

    Well, their website is hosted by GoDaddy. According to the hosting plans, they’re all listed at unlimited bandwidth so this has to be a conspiracy against them.

    Too bad on the unlimited bandwidth. This could have been a way to keep their website unfunctional.

    Ooops! My bad. They just registered their domain name through GoDaddy. They are actually being hosted by http://www.theplanet.com. From a quick look at their plans, they provide 1TB of bandwidth. Their cheap plan isn’t that cheap. Guess that’s why The Pest & eFail needs all of those donations…

    It is hard to understand why they moved from worldpress.com before getting an income stream first and money in the bank. They should have sought donations first.

    When I lived back east in NY I had my own PC & Network business and I had a website for it.
    One time I had a Video Chat program(CuSeeMe) that I wanted to share with my friends, so I put it on my server with a download link. Little did I know that my friends would tell their friends and those friends would tell their friends. I only had it posted to my server for 3 days, but in those 3 days it was downloaded over 1000 times!
    When I got my next bill from my hosting company I was floored, it was for about 10 times my normal hosting fee of $24 per month, because of all the extra bandwidth I used.

    Needless to say I never made that mistake again!

    More nonsense from the Post and Fail….

    “You know, if Mr. Obama was as smart as he thinks he is, he would understand that the People question who he is and what he is because of what he is hiding. No President in history has ever sealed all of the files pertaining to his past.

    Your religion has been in the news before and it continues today and with good reason. Your grandfather was a Muslim, your father was a Muslim, your stepfather was Muslim and you were registered a Muslim when you went to school in Indonesia. You went on your trip through the Middle East apologizing for America being a success. You have repeatedly tried to rewrite history by telling America that Muslims played a part in America’s past. As I have stated before, I don’t remember any Muslims traveling with Columbus, coming over on the Mayflower or signing the Constitution.

    ……..

    You might also understand that there in a difference between a long-form birth certificate and a COLB, and since the one you posted has been proven to be a fake, it’s understandable why people think you are a fake.”

    While obama struggles to claim he is a Christian, I wonder if anybody can provide the name of the last President, let alone any Christian, who bowed to some heathen saudi king?

    If islam is a peaceful religion and if not all muslims are terrorists, why are there none or so pitifully few muslims standing with those of other religions to stop sharia and the prophets’ stated goal of an islamic takeover (caliphate) of the world? It seems to me that islam is not much different than alcoholism: There are the alcoholics and then there are those who are the alcoholics’ enablers — those who enable alcoholics to continue to drink. Or blow up stuff, as the case may be.

    sfjeff: Lots of Muslim haters out there.Anyone else see the resemblence to not so distant past Jew slanders?

    If you read Taitz’s blog… at the risk of invoking Godwin’s law, I have to say that her postings about Muslims are as perfect a parallel to Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda as I could imagine. It’s just dehumanizing and demonizing Muslims with one big lie after another — all Muslims are violent, all Muslims are Holocaust deniers, all Muslims are pedophiles, and so forth. Which is beyond ironic, since she just loves to call her political opponents Nazis.

    The less crazy right wingers who are fomenting against Cordoba House are more subtle, but they consistently work with the implication that all American Muslims are guilty for the 9/11 attacks, which, when you get right down to it, is a vicious lie.

    And it certainly doesn’t help that the national director of the Anti-Defamation League has basically endorsed bigotry.

    History is something they hide from. The first who were blamed for the Murrow Federal building were Muslims. If the gun man Mexican they would have blamed all illegal immigrants. They refuse to repudiate the senseless killing of Dr. Tiller and make up excuses.

    There was a tragic incident a few hours after the Murrah Building was blown up. “Patriots” broke into the apartment of a Muslim family under the impression that they were somehow responsible for the explosion. The wife was six months pregnant, and was so terrified that she miscarried.

    I still feel sick when I think of this.

    Another class act from the bowels of the Pst,

    Constitutional Hydrologist Dr. Kate is interviewed and lets us all in on the new USURPERTHON she is organizing…

    Apparently the Usurpathon” campaign which involves a trip to Washington, DC next week with other “patriots” to deliver a letter to Congress demanding that the eligibility question be resolved. Her four-day sojourn will include other “patriotic activities” as well.

    http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/09/01/the-usurpathon-goes-to-d-c-to-stop-the-treason/

    They get to play with that upstanding Pastor Manning, they will wander the streets of DC from pillar to post including a vigil outside Walter Reed in support of Lt Col Lakin who the dastardly Mooslim Usurper in Chief is making work for a living OR IS IT ARREST……..

    It’s all the usual drivel including how the brave military are all salivating at the bit to overthrow the Man know as the President but apparently are all simultaneously too scared and anyway they are all abroad, doing “Stuff’. Apparently all we are left with Mall Cops and geriatric ebil security guards to protect the USA.

    Runs through the usual BS including

    Arizona/Immigration/Holder/subornig justices
    Mexican troops in Staten Island
    Kenyan/British/Indonesian, all three and no USA in sight
    Several congressional staffers had admitted to her that there is no evidence that he is even an American citizen, let alone “natural born.”….>8-0
    Mystical power of the Sergeant-at-Arms to arrest Da Mooslem, just gotta serve a resentmnet on him
    Kagan and Obama as NWO plants (I think, it gets a bit confusing)
    Alinsky and Cloward-Piven Socialist/Commie plan
    Obama as CIA agent from the age of 6 (can’t make this shit up)

    And on and on and on

    Bovril, even more amusing is where the “qualifications” of “Dr. Kate” are described…

    “Dr. Kate holds a Bachelor’s degree from Smith College in geology and a doctorate in hydrology from the University of Arizona. She has worked in the field of Indian water rights for the last 30 years. A professional resource manager with substantial legal training, Dr. Kate describes the laws governing Indian water rights as “very complex.” Her role has been to find solutions to water resource problems for Native Americans.

    When we asked her if she was an attorney, Dr. Kate told us, “It is just as much of a surprise to me that I could end up on this end and having people think that I’m a lawyer. No, I’m not; I’m just extremely concerned about our country. Fortunately, my training has required me to do a lot of writing. Because I’ve had to have some legal background, at least I know where to look on certain things.”

    In other words her being a hydrologist for Native Americans has allowed her to become a legal expert….You really can’t make this stuff up….

    Bovril, from the same article is the following exchange…

    “DR. KATE: Yes. She’s terrific. She was on Revolution Radio a little while ago, so this will work. We are outraged that he’s being held in the Psychiatric ward of Walter Reed.

    SHARON: Is he still working or has he been admitted to the Psychiatric ward?

    DR. KATE: I think he was admitted and held there, and I understand from speaking with Margaret yesterday that he is working. So whether they allow him to go home or require him to work and then stay there, I think it’s outrageous. We will find out what the story is and his status.

    SHARON: I did not know this.

    DR. KATE: I am outraged. He’s one of our heroes. What would all these people be doing who are now dead, those who took the oath, those who swore to protect the Constitution? Those voices can’t be heard anymore. We hope to magnify those voices in everything we do. So Tuesday is a real day of celebration of heroes. We have a hero in Commander Kerchner, for example, as well. We have a hero in Commander Fitzpatrick. Our military heroes are standing. We have a hero in General Vallely. So we would like to acknowledge and thank all of those military heroes, and in a lot of ways, I want so much for our military to help us with this usurpation.

    So according to “Dr Kate” Lakin is being held in a phych ward? Interesting….

    And this statement from the harp playing Rondeau….

    “SHARON: I think the question is very appropriate because, as you said, he is a dual citizen, and the State Department has admitted that. Now what we have to say is, “If he was born a dual citizen, how does that reconcile with the natural born Citizen’ clause in the Constitution (Article II, Section 1, clause 5)? And if Congress and the courts have different views, we would ultimately have to have the U.S. Supreme Court adjudicate the matter because it’s a constitutional issue. And even if the Supreme Court ruled that a dual citizen at birth could be considered a “natural born Citizen,” we would still have to see the birth certificate because there are many different ways in Hawaii to obtain a birth certificate. What if Obama’s alleged grandmother fraudulently registered his birth in Hawaii but he was actually born overseas, something which is still being researched extensively, which could mean that he might never have been entitled to U.S. citizenship? It would be different if both of his parents were U.S. citizens who were out of the country on diplomatic or military service; perhaps then he could qualify, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here. So looking at the birth certificate is important as well as all of his documentation. However, the State Department’s recent admission is huge, and in my opinion, it most likely disqualifies him.”

    Now Sharon is a Constitutional law expert. No wonder why the birthers keep losing on the legal issues. They are beyond clueless when it comes to the law….

    Conservative misinformation…..

    “One of the top 10 newspapers in the country in terms of overall circulation has called for the impeachment of Barack Obama.

    The Washington Times, which has become known through the years as D.C.’s major alternative newspaper, called for the ouster of Obama in an op-ed column yesterday. The Times is delivered into the mailboxes of every Senator and Congressman in Washington.

    While one major site ranks the Washington Times in the top 100 daily newspapers in the country (No. 92), for a publication to rank even in the top 100 out of over 1400 daily papers in America qualifies the Times as a ‘major daily.’

    Although the column does not officially represent the editorial board of the newspaper, the fact that WT chose to publish it may indicate the official stance of its publisher and ownership, given that the columnist is one of a select few staff editorialists for the paper, and each column written by staff must have prior approval of the WT brass.

    In the stunning opinion-piece, columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner stated the following:

    “President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.”

    Kuhner goes further to delineate the specific high crimes and misdemeanors to which he refers.”

    http://www.examiner.com/conservative-in-national/major-newspaper-calls-for-impeachment-of-barack-obama

    What is more interesting is that the Washington Times is not a major newspaper nor is it in the top 100 papers in the country. It is a loser that bleeds money, which is why Moon wants to buy it back. This is a misleading article….

    Recent Huffpo article puts the circulation of the Washington Times at about 40,000.

    Wikipedia says the 100th US paper in terms of circulation is the “Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era” with a circulation of 80,000.

    What is really funny Kuchner called for impeachment in March. Kuhner would make a proud Birther- some of his greatest moments- all from Media Matters:

    Kuhner has long history of baseless smears, inflammatory rhetoric
    Kuhner forwarded smear that Obama attended a Muslim madrassa as a child. As Media Matters has noted, as editor of the now-defunct Insightmag.com website, Kuhner forwarded the false claim in 2007 that Barack Obama attended a Muslim madrassa as a child in Indonesia.

    Kuhner: Obama secretly wants “the Jews to be wiped off the face of the Earth.” Guest-hosting Michael Savage’s nationally syndicated radio show on June 14, Kuhner stated of Obama: “I believe deep down, he wants the Jewish state to be extinct. I believe that secretly he wants the Israelis and the Jews to be wiped off the face of the Earth. Because in his warped, leftist, academic mind, the two great evils of the world, the two great Satans of the world, are Israel and America.”

    Kuhner: Obama is a “cultural Muslim” who is “betraying the Jews.” In a July 8 Washington Times op-ed, Kuhner wrote that President Obama is “betraying the Jews” and that Obama “is a cultural Muslim whose sympathies lie with the Islamic world in its life-death struggle against Israel.”

    Kuhner called for Obama’s impeachment. In a July 23 Washington Times column, Kuhner stated: “Obama has betrayed the American people. Impeachment is the only answer. This usurper must fall.”

    Kuhner: “Obamaism” is “liberal fascism.” In an April 23 Washington Times column, Kuhner wrote: “Obamaism is more than an attempt to impose big-government liberalism on an unwilling populace. It is a form of liberal fascism that threatens to permanently sever America from its traditional, constitutionalist roots.”

    Kuhner: Obama’s “bow[s]” “reveal a reflexive anti-Americanism.” In an April 16 Washington Times column, Kuhner wrote that “President Obama has disgraced the United States — again. During this week’s nuclear summit in Washington, he bowed when greeting Chinese President Hu Jintao.” Kuhner later stated that Obama’s “actions reflect a fundamental, reflexive anti-Americanism — a profound contempt and hatred for his own country.”

    Kuhner: Jennings “championing pedophila.” On the December 10, 2009, edition of The Steve Malzberg Show, Kuhner smeared Education Department official Kevin Jennings, falsely claiming that Jennings was “championing pedophilia.”

    Kuhner accused Kagan of treason. In a May 14 Washington Times column, Kuhner called then-Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan an “incompetent apparatchik,” “corrupt,” and “anti-capitalist.” In a July 2 Washington Times op-ed, Kuhner falsely claimed that Kagan banned military recruiters on Harvard’s campus and claimed that her actions constituted “an act of treason.”

    Kuhner: Sotomayor believes “that America is a racist, sexist, homophobic and misogynist society.” Guest-hosting The Savage Nation on May 28, 2009, Kuhner said that then-Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor believes “that America is a racist, sexist, homophobic and misogynist society.”
