So I have been indecisive about the first post I would write for BluntAboutIt.com
That was until earlier today when I found out something rather interesting. I had to do a bit of research, and unfortunately I have only inconclusive answers due to various legal protections preventing penetration of a perpetual proof picture, plus personal principles. What I am referring to is an act which I find amusing, but more so, see tells of deeper understandings and the twisting of the future as though it were play dough. The, as far as I can tell legal, acquisition and implementation of Jeb Bush’s http://jebbush.com domain to redirect to https://www.donaldjtrump.com/ – clicking either will take you to the same page, an over saturated CloudFlare proxy of Donald Trump’s website, complete with campaign propaganda. That is if it will load properly. Of course, this may change at any time, and though currently we’re all having a bit of a chuckle at this – at least if you’re not a Jeb Bush supporter, it may be returned to Jeb. I speculate that Jeb had lost track of the domain, and allowed it to lapse. Now, I may be mistaken, but from what I’ve learned is that once a domain name expires, the registrar usually holds it for a period of time after expiration where the name cannot be registered by another party. This is to allow for the domain to be re-registered by the previous owner, for a clean-up stage where URLs, email addresses and servers may be shut down to prevent unwanted attention, and for administrative purposes. The point is that the domain name would have not been responsive for website, redirect or email (or any other service the domain may have been used to point to) would have been inaccessible. And not just for an hour or a day, but generally for a month or longer.
I was at one point, as being a Florida native and of impressionable age when Jeb was Governor of the state, a supporter of his. But at this point, how could I trust this man with my Nation, my Country, my protectors in uniform if he can’t keep a domain named after himself from expiry?
