Well, we all have experience with this type of faux pas. At one time or another everyone has accidentally hit “reply all” and sent something we didnt mean to send. And now the Taliban belongs to this club of common mistakes made in the modern world. Unfortunately when they did so they revealed their entire mailing list. Michael Yon got a hold of it and published the list
I have had a few people, including myself, have trouble getting to the site. Anti-Spyware programs and firewalls try to block it, as does Firefox. It is not because Michael’s site is bad or dangerous but in order to make it more easily accessible I have copied the list to a few places that you can find below.
So folks, I think we should all work to render these emails useless. Get creative 🙂 I will be spending the rest of the day exposing the recipients to “western values” and the type of leisure I enjoy and would love to see arrive in my inbox. As well as some things I would never want to see in my inbox. But because I do not know any of them personally I have no idea what their tastes may be; therefore I must include everything.
I encourage everyone to take the same considerations when helping these great folks expand their horizons. Remember, the Taliban wants to know where all the hot single transexuals looking for love are. Trust me.
For all you sexually repressed jihadis…we know what you really want!
Government loves to be involved with everything. And the intellectually honest can sometimes even make a good argument for this. However, I believe that even the best academic may have trouble justifying the need of 18 new twitter accounts that fall under the TSA.
As part of what looks to be a massive information campaign by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), TSA on Thursday announced the launch of 18 new Twitter accounts. If that seems like a lot for one organization, that’s because it is.
The author, Carlton Purvis, goes on to ask 8 questions in regards to this waste of taxpayer’s money. Purvis keeps the questions bland, because, well, how much life can you pump into such a lame topic? The TSA’s overall justification is that people want and need region specific information. Which is fine. But the TSA has turned into an association that produces facepalms more than anything else.
If the TSA had the ability to be honest within their ranks, as well as the rest of the country, they should be focused on posting their own screw-ups region by region. When a TSA employee takes a sex toy out of someones luggage and tapes it to the outside of the suitcase I want to know where that happened. And so do others. That way if we are travelling with a similar device we either know what to expect or may decide to change the packing location to an orifice.
Perhaps you are travelling with a bratty child and want them to experience the wonders of what Mark Levin calls a “soft tyranny”. A regional update from the TSA may provide you with the exact location where child harassment is being conducted. Hopefully you get their before the offending agent takes his union mandated break. But what if your 18 month old child is already well established in the ranks of Al-Qaeda? Obviously she doesn’t have a website that th3j35t3r can take out. Only the TSA can put a stop to that trained militant.
Obviously 18 twitter accounts for the TSA will not be enough. No matter what the agency does or how unpopular it becomes the likelyhood of them adding more twitter accounts (or social media accounts for that matter) is eminent. In Carlton Purvis’s article above the TSA says that people are “understandably interested in the airports that they travel through“. No shit. Air travel can be nerve-racking. Everything from parking to take-off can be pure hell. Since we all know that, and there are more than 18 regions in the country, the TSA will expand its online presence.
The final solution to the growing TSA problem is simple. Compulsory participation with the TSA’s social media accounts and a mandatory minimum activity for each adult in the United States. All cell phones will come preloaded with a TSA app that automatically links to all of your social media accounts. Since the forwarding of messages and updates can be automated, and your cell phone is sort of a gps device anyways, you will automatically broadcast the TSA’s updates on your social media accounts. This way they can reach everyone in the US with minimal effort.
You don’t have a decision in the matter but you wont need to have one. The decision will already be made for you. Because you’re a dumb-ass. Didn’t you know that people are “understandably interested in the airports that they travel through”? Of course you did. So compliance won’t be an issue. If it becomes an issue then we have room for you in the federal prison. Health Care block may be full of people awaiting trial for non-compliance but TSB (Travel Security Block) still has a few vacant cells. And if they fill up too fast they will just put two to a cell and you can share one with the guy who dared to wear an Anti-TSA shirt.
We saw this coming during the 08 election. And I think the defining moment that showed that government was truly confident in taking over the people was when a local government used what was called by residents “full military operation” to shutdown a bonfire on the 4th of July. Hummers, helicopters, bomb squad, and even a command post set up nearby. A local government only gets this type of confidence when their big brother has already gotten away with bullying other kids in the neighborhood.
I wish I could check out the republic and offer a clean bill of health. Instead my recommendation is to find a priest. Fast.
UPDATE AT BOTTOM: Wounded Warrior Project to receive donation!
The last time I needed to draw attention to a specific topic I held an online raffle. The rules were simple. You retweet a link and copy me on it and you’re automatically entered. And we are going to keep it just as simple this time around.
It Starts Today (As in RIGHT NOW!)
This new contest is going to help bring awareness to the online community about the post-Weinergate fallout. Innocent people who were investigating the story had their lives destroyed, on purpose, by demented liberals. Once they (the liberals) began to lose their argument they decided to target their opponents by making fake 911 calls posing as their opponent and telling the dispatcher that they had shot their wives. It’s called “Swatting” (as in using the SWAT team to intimidate people; or the person panics and is shot dead accidentally). Its terrorism. And even when it fails it still succeeds. Leftists no longer have the Klan as their terrorist arm of their party. Now, just like Islamic extremists, they are relying on irrational “lone wolves” who are faithfully tied to their political philosophy. So much so that respect for human life is no longer present. (See Crying Wolfe, my Introduction to the story on Yahoo, and other two posts here and here for background)
Ok Doug, WHAT ARE THE DAMN PRIZES???!?!?!
Grand Prize Winner (1): $100 gift card of your choice.
Second Place Winner (1): $75 gift card of your choice
1) Look for one of my tweets with the hashtag #TCW. You can find my Twitter profile HERE. Also acceptable are retweets from The Crying Wolfe Blog Twitter, or @Goatsred. It just has to have the hashtag.
2)Retweet the tweet (don’t forget to cc me, @dmatthewstewart, in the tweet)
3) Wait for my confirmation tweet saying that you have been entered. If you do not receive a confirmation within 24 hours contact me.
The names are put on a slip of paper and dropped into a big bowl. The Contest starts NOW! And the prize drawings will be on February 29, 2012.
Can I give myself an edge? And other minutia
In the last contest it did not matter how many times you retweeted my tweets, you only got one entry. However, we are going to change it this time and add incentive for you to really get it out there. So here is some incentive:
10 Retweets = 1 extra entry
25 Retweets = 2 extra entries
50 Retweets = 3 extra entries
Q: Do I have to actually follow you to be entered?
A: No. I am not doing this to get my number of followers up. You can go about your business on Twitter without having to deal with my daily gripes or sarcastic remarks. This is about getting the stories out and exposing lawbreaking cowards.
Q: If I am a 3rd place winner can I receive a gift card rather than a Silver Eagle Coin?
A: Sure. I just have an abundance of bullion coins and it makes those 3 prizes easier to fulfill. But the choice is yours.
Q: Why do you do this?
A: Some topics absolutely need as much exposure as possible. My blog only receives about 200-300 hits per day. My Yahoo commentaries will receive on average 1,000-2,000 hits per month. And I only have about 730 followers on Twitter. This is a way to take a relatively small internet footprint and expand it.
Q: Why now?
A: Because I am days away from publishing the technical data of the perpetrators. This will be an extremely important part of this issue
Q: What are you some kind of an asshole?
If you have any other questions feel free to either contact on twitter (@dmatthewstewart) or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and good luck everyone!
PS-Winner of my previous contest was Jbroks86 and he can attest to the fact that this is not bullshit.
If this contest receives over 10,000 retweets I will sell a Gold Eagle and make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project for whatever the coin sells for.
Greetings all. I would like to inform you of a change here at Ameristroika. Starting next week a new contributor will be joining us here. I know that youre probably thinking “Hey Doug, do you really need another Right-Wing Nut Job to prove your points?” You’re right, we dont need another Right-Winger. And that is precisely why we have gotten a Left-Wing Nut Job. Issues that demand attention in the public sphere will be addressed with both opinions appearing directly in the same posts. This new contributor is a former military man. We salute him and are grateful for his service; but now its time to slug it out.
For some time now I have tried, unsuccessfully, to add a contributor with opposing views. Unfortunately it was terribly difficult to find a person that was able to have a civil discussion without being combative and/or platitudinous. What started with a few snarky comments back and forth on Twitter evolved into substantive dialect. When that transition happened I knew we had found the right guy. And now its time to knock heads until we bleed. Stay Tuned
