The Illuminati make Bush pay

‘Illuminati’ cybersquatters make killing over Bush library

Damn those Internets.

President Bush’s presidential library lost their domains to cybersquatters and the company charged with developing the website was forced to pay $35,000 to get it back.

The squatters, a North Carolina company called Illuminati Karate, leveraged the domain that the presidential library let expire into a sweet five-figure sum after an embarrassing report in a Dallas newspaper that they’d lost the domain.

Illuminati’s return on investment was a whopping 3500%. They paid just $10 for the domain.</em>

Between this and the shoes, it just ain’t bushies week. Ha.
