(Newser) – Look out Google! There’s a new email-and-search site in town, and this one isn’t run by hippy liberals! Last year Michael Reagan launched Reagan.com, in an attempt to counteract what he sees as a liberal bias in email. “Every time you use your email from companies like Google,” he wrote, “you are helping liberals.” So for a mere $39.95 a year, he’s offering @Reagan.com addresses instead. In honor of the Gipper’s birthday, Fast Company decided to check in and see how that was working out.

The answer—brace yourself Google—is that Reagan’s got all of 4,000 people. “If I'm on Sean Hannity, and I say I have an @Reagan.com email service, I can sell 1,000. Wham!” he boasts. And a sweet domain name isn’t all his site offers. “We got the calendar. We got everything going for it. Our search engine—I think we have the only search engine that gives you both the left and the right.” Although that last feature might just be broken. (See image.)

Like father, like son. Scam the public and let them think they are doing something good. Instead, take their money and give them what they might have had free. Called enriching those at the top and screwing those in the middle and below. Suckers willing to pay 40 bucks ? Now if you use that address, you ought to know that you might be sending out for jobs, schools, to people you know slightly, etc and letting them know you are way to the Right...Not a bright idea, is it? Like my opening a site and calling it .....@KarlMarx.Net
