Don’t Mess with Washington or you never ever gonna see America!

Having lived in Europe for four years from 2002 through 2006, it gave me the opportunity to learn how angry most Brits were or still are against the US. I could understand their frustration with our government during the Bush regime. I was one of those pissed off people myself, but why angry at Obama? He is not perfect either, but I just don’t see anything in the guy to get pissed at. Not surprisingly, a British teen was pissed at him and he is banned from entering the US ever.

Luke Angel sent an angry e-mail to the White House and shortly after, he was visited by local police and banned for life from stepping foot on U.S. soil.

The 17-year-old Bedfordshire resident became upset after watching a TV documentary about 9/11, leading him to compose an expletive-laden e-mail that called our President, a “prick.” The FBI took the e-mail very seriously and contacted the local British police, who visited Angel at his home and took his picture, then informed him that he would not be able to enter the U.S.

I don’t think that the guy ever wanted to come here much if he wrote what he wrote so the ban was just all they can do about him…

It has become necessary for government officials to monitor e-mail and other social. So, digital messages like this are taken seriously. If you might be one of those who think this is a joke, think again over and over.
