Thank's Again Fox!

The photos on the right are purported to be the recently captured al Qaeda cell which was discovered in Lodi, California. Recognize the guy on the right? I did. He is Ahmed Ressam a.k.a. the Millenium Bomber. He was captured while crossing into my home state in 1999.

Fox is such a bush league outfit. Why do I get the feeling that there are only like twelve people who work at Fox. That's why they are all opinion and no actual reporting. Reporting takes work. That's why I don't do it. Posting baseless opinions is so much simpler.

Makes you wonder who the guy on the left is.

I'm pretty sure the guy on the left is a Fox employee that they eyebrow-groom to release as a "new captured terrorist" every five months or so. Then they make him go get coffee. He's the "random, get me some damn coffee, terrorist".

OT, but I thought I'd post instead of sending an email:

Did you just get banned from RedState? Man, that pisses me off. I'm resisting the urge to chuck them from my RSS reader 'cause its the last righty blog remaining on there but sheesh what a bunch of douchebags.

I happened to have agreed with a lot of the stuff you were posting but, even if I didn't.... putting myself in their shoes.... it seems to me a cat like yourself, sticking mostly to key left wing concepts, would be useful to have around. As a punching bag? No? Hmm these shoes don't fit...

Dear Anonymous:

(and to think I swore I would never respond to an anonymous poster)

Yes I have been banned. That fuck-tard Streiff banned me for no reason I can think of considering how long I had been posting there. I sent him an email reply to his question, but alas the address on his redstate profile is bullshit.

I then sent a request to asking for a better address for streiff; no luck so far.

Here is what I tried to send him, too bad he likely won't ever read it:

To: Streiff
From: Seattleslough
Subject: re: banning

You said:

"Aren't you really proud of yourself. Going out in a fizzle of half-baked, ill-informed invective rather than being CENSORED?"

I respond thusly:

First, what kind of person bans a poster then cowardly poses them a question where they are no longer allowed to answer? A tremendous pussy that's who. Just so my meaning is clear. I, former poster, 'Seattle slough' am calling you, current big shot, 'Streiff' a tremendous pussy.

Second, to answer your question, I am neither proud nor ashamed. I would say surprised is a good description. Possibly slightly disappointed, but not proud. The reason I am surprised is that I was under the impression that I would likely receive a warning prior to a banning. In fact a few weeks ago I had a conversation with Leon H where he told me just that. see:
Guess he was wrong there.

I shall keep you no longer. I'm sure you have lots of work ahead of you trying to blame Clinton for 9/11.


p.s. I always figured it'd be Thomas that would ban me. Not a lightweight nothing like you.

p.p.s. As you can see, this is not an appeal to be reinstated. My wish was only to answer your cowardly question by calling you a tremendous pussy. If you had a pair, you would post this answer below your cowardly question. (redstate's prudish ban on profanity notwithstanding) Knowing that you won't, I will surely stand by my assertion. You know, the assertion that has me saying that you, Streiff, are a tremendous pussy.

p.p.s.s. But we all knew that already. That you are a tremendous pussy that is. You. Streiff. Tremendous Pussy.

Me again - no longer anonymous!

I don't know if you read Orcinus but I think that blog's long running tolerance of this character Border Ruffian (up until a few days ago) compared to RedState's intolerance of a fellow like yourself is illustrative. Its a bit of a strech - community blogging about various topics vs. one guy blogging mostly about xenophobia but it still highlights different ideas about debate.

Here's the most recent BR exchange:
