SECOND UPDATE: Creative Responses to Nigerian 419 Scams

As discussed in this post, I kinda like scam emails, because it really speaks to the evil in men's hearts and of the unbelievable stupidity of the dolts who fall for them--they walk among us, driving cars, or if not cable of driving, touching things in public like (in this order): 

A Sheetz's (convenience/gas/food place) entry door handle,
Several bags of chips in the snack food rack,
That Sheetz's restroom "In" door handle,
A stall knob (to open and close),
His/her sweatpants,
The bag of Capuccino Lays he/she took from the snack food rack,
His/Her mouth,

<30 minutes later>

Toiletpaper dispenser,
His/Her hiney hole,
The toilet flush handle,
The stall knob (to open),
The bag of Capuccino Lays he/she took from the snack food rack,
His/Her mouth,
That Sheetz's restroom door "Out" handle,
Several bags of chips in the snack food rack,
The ATM machine buttons (because of the pretty sounds, funny-feeling braile bumps, and strange mysterious glowing symbols),
A Sheetz's (convenience/gas/food place) exit door handle, out into the public once more, touching things you'll be touching soon.

You're probably wondering why I chose Sheetz for this entirely factual account of over 30 minutes of an idiot's day.

Well, the People of Sheetz who venture into the restroom are like the "Oops I Pooped" People of Walmart of convenience stores.

That, and Sheetz has begun to really piss me off recently. They are reaching the Lena Dunham-Bacon level of Peetey's ire.

...and, to get back on topic, I like creative responses to these scam letters. I typically do not respond in detail, because you just never know how capable this person is on the other end. This person, though, seems pretty low-brow, as his pitch is terrible. But, it also might be part of his genius, too. He doesn't beat around the bush, and gets right to the pitch. Note cantv.net is a common Nigerian 419 scam domain.  It doesn't even make any sense. No exact amount given, and other than the subject line of "unclaimed lost lotto funds," doesn't repeat it, nor attempt to come up with a creative story for these funds, which is part of the fun in reading them.

As you can imagine, Peter Dee has some pretty wacky (and by "pretty," I mean both "attractive" and also "very much so") friends. And these wacky friends (and by "friends" I mean "friends") have some wacky (and by "wacky," I mean "very cool") siblings.  

This is what "Jon," I'll call him, wrote in response, and it might have been but a handful of the responses Dr. Jamal received, which, of course, is good for Dr. Jamal, as it lowers his investment costs.

Dr Jamal,

     Your email finds me at a very opportune time.  Did Sylvester Breen provide you with my contact info?  I am a not surprised - Syl is a great friend.  As you know, my left testicle was removed by the ISIS colonel Antadji during routine torture.  At that point, beheading would have been a better option!

All jokes aside, my surgery is to take place 5 December in Brussels.  Can you send an initial wire of $25,000 USD to Remnants Medical Group to reserve my new testicle.  That covers the reservation and shipping and handling from wherever they receive the testicle - assuming it's healthy and my body accepts it.  Antadji can take my testicle, but he can't take my FREEDOM!  

Regards,

Bal H. Livingston 

Inspired by "Jon's" moving letter, I felt compelled to write back to a scammer that popped into my inbox.  This scammer works by tugging at the heart strings of elder Christians, no doubt, which is particularly insidious.

I especially like the "undisclosed recipients" in the "To" block, as it really speaks to a careful, "hands-on" personal touch, as does the lack of a subject line.

Dear Child of God.

Calvary Greetings in the name of the LORD Almighty and Our LORD JESUS CHRIST the giver of every good thing. Good day and compliments of the seasons, i know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence.

I am Mrs. Nancy Jean, an aging widow of 61 years old suffering from long time illness. I have some funds I inherited from my late husband, the sum of $14,500,000.00 and I needed a very honest and God fearing Christian who can withdraw this money then use the funds for Charity works. 

I WISH TO GIVE THIS FUNDS TO YOU FOR CHARITY WORKS. I found your email address from the internet after honest prayers to the LORD to bring me a helper and i decided to contact you if you may be willing and interested to handle these trust funds in good faith before anything happens to me.

I am desperately in keen need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you for this task, you must not fail me and the millions of the poor people in our today WORLD. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved,100%  RISK FREE with full legal proof. 

Please if you would be able to use the funds for the Charity works please kindly let me know immediately. Please kindly respond quickly for further details, reply quick or you will give me room to contact someone else to handle this task on my

Warmest Regards

Mrs Nancy Jean,

And Here is my reply (to which I have not gotten a response :insert sad face emoticon:). Maybe I shouldn't have included the P.S.?

Or, maybe Nancy Jean succumbed to her illness and no one will ever be able to use that money for good.  The Nigerian government sure won't, as it ranks among the most corrupt governments in the world, by many different measures.

Or, maybe she found a more appropriate Christian.

Dear Mrs Nancy Jean,

I am interested in your proposition, as for a long time I have wanted to help prostitutes.

Let me know how I can help those I love the most through these charitable funds. You've chosen the right Christian to entrust with the money, as I will assure you I will only give it to help prostitutes.

Yours in Christ,

P.S. I'm not gay, but $20 is $20.


Do you have any creative responses? Send them to me and I'll post.

Happy Thanksgiving!

UPDATE

In what I think can only be described as a Thanksgiving Day miracle, I received this reply from my Christian friend Nancy Jean several hours after I posted this toasty posty. I didn't realize it at the time, but looking at her email address, it changed from Gmail to Yahoo. Once they have a potential sucker, they switch email addresses.

#ProfilesinTweepage Number One: The @PeeteySDee Interview (Part Two)

Profiles in Tweepage is a new series here at the Letters From My Good Friend Peter S. Dee Blog.  But then, nearly everything is new here.  The idea is simple. Interview Tweeps I follow and find interesting; chances are you will too, maybe even if you're a douchebag #Progressive bent on destroying America because you're too much of a pussy to emigrate somewhere more amenable to you.  I'll also highlight some of their very best Tweets.  Most I speak with are normal Americans with a story, and everyone has a story.  I'm only going to select the best to profile.

First up is me, of course.  I wouldn't ask Tweeps to do something I wouldn't do myself.  This will be updated in parts.  This is Part Two. You can read Part One here.


I'll ask myself some questions and then highlight some of the Tweets I consider the best of. 


#TRIGGERWARNING for psychological nudity, some borderline NSFW, and definitely a little NC17.


Here is my current Twitter homepage, with the #Radagast2016 campaign flyer background.






LET THE RE-INQUISITIONing Re-BEGIN!

Question 2. Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): So, we have some questions from a few of your followers.  You only have a few Tweeples, so it's quite amazing you got any questions at all.

@PeeteySDee: Jesus only had 12 disciples.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): I'll ignore that comment.  How did you come by your Twitter handle?

@PeeteySDee:  It's funny you ask. Peetey is a nickname of Peter.  S is an abbreviation for my middle name, short for is Samwise, which is almost everyone's middle name after 1940. My mom was a huge Tolkien fan, not that it means anything.  And, Dee is a surname.  There are several of us "Peter Dees" out there. Little known counter-factual speculation, but I might even be related to the late DJ Rick Dees.  Like REALLY, REALLY closely related.  You know, the kinda the same way Ronan Farrow is the bastard child of Frank Sinatra, but with a different sperm and an egg.

So, it seemed like a good fit, and besides it's part of the name of my band, Peetey S Dee and the Inhuman $hields.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): I just checked. Rick Dees is still alive--he's only 64. He even has a website www.rick.com.

@PeeteySDee: That's really great to hear!  Ummm, next question?

Question 3. Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee):  What significance does your Twitter avi have?

@PeeteySDee:  I'm a South Park Conservative.  Yeah, there was 2005 book by Brian 
Anderson called South Park Conservatives: The Revolt Against Liberal Media Bias that I never read. It got three and half stars, so I'm probably not going to read it.  Plus, it's 10 years old, and there has been a whole decade of brilliant South Park not covered in the book, which I think, covered just one chapter anyway.


South Park is my favorite TV show, but many Social Conservatives would never watch it. In fact in, it the mid-1990's even I wouldn't watch it because I thought it was subversive and nasty, and it was the same way I felt about MTV's Beavis and Butthead. I hated MTV. I grew up when MTV launched, and it was BRILLIANT.  Then, many years later, it became a #Progressive hate machine and truly subversive.  But, I digress.  The Beavis and Butthead creator, Mike Judge also created Office Space, #Idiocracy, and King of the Hill.  He's also got a strong Libertarian bent. Here is RWNJ Alex Jones' videotaping of an excellent Mike Judge interview.  Interesting the South Park creators admitted to being inspired by Mike Judge.





As I was saying, I became, and keep becoming, more tolerant as I grow older.  I became a true critical thinker: intellectually honest, humble (don't snicker), and increasingly curious, among other typical traits of a critical thinker.  I'll write a blog post someday soon on critical thinking and what it really means.  I've taught it as a course for soldiers.  About the only thing what #Progressives and most #RWNJ have in common is a lack of critical thinking skills--and tolerance, and that they are closer together politically than they would be with someone like me, who is to the right of both of them, in Libertarian (i.e., personal liberty ala Locke) land. 


For example, a SoCon like Todd Akin or Mike Huckbee would be happy to use the government levers of power to enforce morality--which they think can only come from a higher moral authority.  I'm very cool with God and the Bible being sources of morality, but in the absence of God and the Bible, morality still exists.  

I recognize that for many, their moral compass is broken, and their only hope is finding morality in organized religion.  In fact, I Tweeted this out recently for that very reason.

I started watching South Park only recently after it was first aired. A lot, in addition to my other 98/100 interests. I started observing the philosophy of the script writers seemed to match closely with my own.  One benefit of not being socially conservative is that we get to enjoy prurient things a lot more than do SoCons.  For what it's worth, I don't know much about South Park creators (and Team America: World Police) Trey Parker and Matt Stone.  Dont do the

Regarding my Twitter avi, though, the South Park website has a place where you can design your own avatar.  Mine looks incredibly just like me.  It's designed to be an Obamacare Navigator who roams the restrooms of elementary and middle schools, helping children explore safe sex education with his (in a gender non-normative pronouny sort of way) trusty banana and bag of free condoms. 


And it looks messed up, right?  It's designed to confuse--The Left primarily.  If you're a #SoCon, though, it's going to look like I'm gay or something, and someone to immediately block or hate on, like Lee Jackson (btw, I just realized there are a ton of Jackson Lees, including Sheila Jackson-Lee), who was paid a lot of money to be a DoD representative of America advising foreign cultures on security. I shake my head. But anyway...

Here's the deal. 


This is how we Conservatives win the #CultureWar: We take that which the enemy uses against us, and use it as a strength.  It's like the AFC North Pittsburgh Steelers trading for quasi-felon linebacker (in his prime) Ray Lewis. Addition by subtraction... and addition by addition simultaneously.


What do they use against us?  The #SoConNarrative.


Which is why we're not likely to win the Culture War in this way.  You can't make enough SoCons become cool very quickly. They kinda have to die off.


Here is an excellent example of the SoCon Narrative from the 2012 Presidential Election cycle:





What was likewise great (for the #Progressive SoCon Narrative) is that about this time Todd Akin made his famous "legitimate rape" gaffe, and some other idiot did something... oh, right, Richard Mourdock's "God intended rape" gaffe.  Top this off with stiff Mormon Mitt Romney... you've got "Republicans are going to ban your tampons and chain y'all women back in the menstruation sequestration chambers."


It was so bad, it looked very much to us Tea Party folks like the epic Lonestar-Dark Helmet battle from Space Balls where evil wins because good is stupid:




This false #SoCon narrative has become ingrained into the American political psyche, even though it is largely a myth, like most conventional wisdom.  But for that very reason, it is a nearly intractable problem to solve. You can't fight it. You don't control the narrative nor the media through which is swims, to paraphrase Chairman Mao:"The guerrilla must swim in the people as the fish swims in the sea." This a American Progressive insurgency well under way.


Fortunately, the Democrats are in denial right now about their brand.  They re-elected Pelosi and Reid in the Congress, and no one in the #Liberal media is taking an honest look at WTF just happened to us in the 2014 midterms.


If we Conservatives draft the right Conservative candidate for 2016, we should crush the hell out out #Progressivism again while they are down.  We need to keep our jack-booted heels on their throats and press hard until they stop moving.


Question 4. Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee):  How do you handle Twitter Trolls?

@PeeteySDee: I'm not going to give away my exact secrets, but here are some examples.


The second I recognize a Twitter troll has pooped in my time line, I think of this beautiful song:





And then I kick.

I Tweeted this out one day, and was immediately attacked by several atheist militants trolling the #atheists hashtag, bent on putting a jihad on a socially conservative Christian. Instead, they trolled me, an atheist.  Some of these accounts, like Skeptic Teapot (@steapot) do nothing but troll for Christians to attack as their raison d'etre.  
Here was one troll's response:
And speaking of smug atheists speaking smugly (to my good friend chicken milker @DoreenHDickson):
Here's another fun troll coming after me out of the blue after the 2014 midterms.
I typically kick once hard with extremely naughty, intelligent language, and then block--although in researching my Tweets for this post, I may change my tactics.*  I usually do Twitter to have a good time, not get into fights with trolls. But, as you saw from my last blog post, people from my "tribe" tend to get me a lot more upset--they almost always block me first.  And what is more interesting, from that particular exchange over Lee Jackson's peckerheadedness, I gained three friends. 

You're not going to gain many fighting with a rage-filled #Progressive monster... or its near equivalent, the rage-filled #RWNJ who often Tweet in ALL CAPS, which (#ProTip) only never makes you look crazy.  Or maybe you will. @MrGeology is amazing in his stamina and ability to go round after round with #Liberals on Twitter; I hope he agrees to let me profile him soon.

Here's another classic example of my troll punching from the time President Obama saluted with a soy latte in his hand.




Yep. This is me.

I think you are starting to see what and who I am, or who I can be to my enemies.  And, you may or may not like me very much, especially if you're a "Conservative."  Do you like to listen to Michael Savage and Alex Jones?  Well, you may night like me very much, either. My favorite talk show dudes are Mark Levin, followed by Rush Limbaugh. Do you Tweet in ALL FREAKING CAPS? Ditto.

Why don't I like Savage and Jones? Cause they're waaay less intellectual than most. Savage with the PhD?  Please.  They are both nihilistic self-promoters. They are really scary. And scary can be good when they government becomes tyrannical, because guess who is getting shot first?  Well, it's not me. They are 'tarded next to real Conservative rising and risen smarties like Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldberg (who RTs my clever Tweets), Jim Goad, Greg Gutfeld, James Delingpole, Mollie Hemingway, and of course, the might Ace of Spades HQ and others. Go find them.  They may or may not be first to get shot, but they have smaller audiences, so I'm guessing second, which still gives me some time to escape to Texas.

I wish Mark Steyn had his own show so I could sit back bare-naked all day listening to it, allowing his voice to make air waves all over my body (really, I'm not gay--this is all part my shtick).  It's a self-running joke that I call Mark "The Dreamy @MarkSteynOnline(TM)"... and it's also a self-running joke I call @SallyKohn "The Handsome Sally Kohn."  And It's probably why Mark Steyn never retweets me.  And, that makes me sad. 

Come on, Dreamy @MarkSteynOnline. RT me.

I tolerate Glenn Beck in third, until he becomes preachy. I suspended my TV provider for the winter and have no TV and I only subscribe to his The Blaze TV for news (and I listen to XM Fox and local NPR). I get my MSM from their websites, and I never watch @MSNBC, except in highights.

I'm probably more conservative than you are politically, except for Savage and Jones fans, and I'm talking to you folks, but also to the Christian Social Conservatives, the #SoCons. 

Just being a Christian doesn't make you a Right Winger, but if you religiously (pun intended) listen to Savage and Jones and agree with them always, you're automatically in the club.  Quite incidentally, being a #Racist doesn't make you a right winger, it makes you a #Progressive.

Many #RINOs court the Christian right successfully, like Huckabee, or as my #SexKitten, and possible #Radagast2016 VP running mate Megyn Kelly says:

When @PeeteySDee goes to #WAAR with The Left (and The RWNJ, if necessary), he goes to war with him having already having taken away most of their weapons (but they don't know it yet, and they will), because they fight successfully enough on most battlefields with the #SoConNarrative, and fight rhetorically as I talked about in this post.  Neither Truth nor Logic does not matter. You must fight dirty like they do... using their Alinsky Rules, and our own Goad's Rules by mocking them mercilessly, while also fighting logically like they do not do, simultaneously.

For me (and folks like Ace from the Ace of Spades HQ), they hate those like "me:"
  • They can't get me on being illiterate on #Science, because I'm a scientist. Most Liberals aren't really well versed in science, by the way, and we can spend several days talking about their own stupidity.
      • Think, for a moment about the Liberal work ethic. Riiiiight... Psychology, Journalism, and History look like really good majors to The Left. The Liberal avoids math-laden STEM courses (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), or in other words, courses which truly cause one to integrate theory and practice, and discover where theory fails when practiced.  Or, you can read, like I did in the mid-1990's in college, the stunningly wise Latina feminsit queer Gloria E. Anzaldúa's "Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza," where she talks, mostly of course, about her vagina... and spend hours discussing the metaphysically hidden interpretations of what she really meant.  There is no practicality there.
        Only Liberals who are compelled and gifted pursue STEM. It's a minority. I know you want to argue with me on this, but I'll win. It's my life; I live it. I'm talking real STEM, people. Your MAs and BAs in science do not count as STEM. You are not scientists, and many MS now don't even require an MS Thesis!  Guess what?  NOT a scientist unless you've got practical science work; I'll give you a pass on a publication whore.  That's all crap any way, if you follow my #Science tweets.

        I encounter very few Liberal scientists and technicians where I work. It's hard work, and meaningful.
  • They can't get me on being a #Science denying #Christian, because I'm not a Christian. I'm at best an agnostic. (I'll cover this soon in that Evolution thread I promised a few weeks ago, I promise again.)
  • They can't get me on clinging to my mythological religion, because I have none, and am not a militant atheist anxious to put a jihad on your ass.
  • Progressives can't pretend I'm a prude, because I'm not, and I think that's pretty clear to see.  When they engage me I speak their language whether I approve or not: cuckold, gloryhole, snowball, rusty trombone, salad tossing--words many people have never heard, because they read the old dictionaries, not the new ones.
    Evidently Pennsylvania's Governor Corbett also makes us collect our urine in order to make the Koch Brothers young or something, so I 'spose I'll be happy when Tom Fox replaces this urine tax with with an income tax. At least that;s what the +rLOLGOP (@LOLGOP) says is in our  future:
  • They can't get me on being racist, because this is my Smoking Hot Asian Wife(TM) pictured below, and nope, she doesn't have a penis. We all realize #Progressives hate Asians because they blow the curve and can't be used as a victim class in the #CultureWar.  Harvard, and nearly every single university in America, has been discriminating against them for years on admissions; just Google it and "racial quotas."

Smoking Hot Asian Wife(TM) in Hunting Clothes, scratching the top of a finely crafted Nazi-mobile.
Of course your typical #Progressive or #RWNJ would say, "Dude, of course you're going to say nice things about your nasty yellow wife cause that's where your thing goes," and then they ask, "so is her thing, like side ways and stuff?"  Well, duh. That's in part why she's has ruined all other women for me.

Nope, I'm a new breed of Conservative. I'm at the tail end of Gen X (one without Baby-Boomer parents), and have a much in common with Millennials who did not grow up with Reagan as a role model President. Many millennials have a strong Libertarian streak, and I'm not sure why, but I suspect is has to do with human nature.

So the bottom line for you SocialConservatives is this: We not-you's, the #SouthParkRepublicans are your future, or you will alienate several more generations of children. You'll be extinct and a people with no political power. Religion is becoming less important in Americans lives (matching a global trend, except in Islamic countries--yippee).

Do you want to know how to relate?  You use the soft sell. Very soft.

You do not do this well, but some churches and many Christians are starting to get it.

Have you seen all the churches for sale, though? I have, and it's sad.

Question 5. Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee):  You don't seem like a scientist.

@PeeteySDee: That's not really a question, but I'll answer it like it was.  I'm kind of like the more sexy Dr. Peter Venkman of scientists.  In fact, Dr. Venkman had a huge influence on my young life.  He didn't use those big sciency words, but you knew that he knew them. At least once.

And when he said, "Back off, man. I'm a scientist."?  

Power. Dem's bitch slapping words.

Notice how I made sure I used the honorific abbreviation for "Doctor?"

Damn right you did.

Back then being a scientist meant something. Today, they're either carnival barkers or government shills for Progressive policies like #GlobalChange, or whatever it's called this week. I suspect it has a lot to do with #IdiocracyRising in America. Americans are just dumberer.


Those aren't scientists, no matter how smart they actually are, and both men are brilliant, for what it's worth. They are just wrong, and they either don't know science or have abandoned it as a way of life long ago. 

I have not abandoned science; and I've not abandoned the US Constitution.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): Speaking of smart, you claim to be a #Mensan, and yet you don't seem all that smart or nerdy. And your blog posts have a ton of shitty grammar and bad errors.


@PeeteySDee: Oh, I'm nerdy. I bet a lot of the female nerds who have gotten this far are dripping wet.  I'm also not #GamerGate nerdy. When that blew up, I had no freaking idea WTF was going on. But #ComiCon, #SteamPunk?  I'd be all #cosplay over that shit.  Come on, Radagast the Brown didn't choose me as campaign manager for Radagast the Brown for President 2016, or #Radagast2016 for nothing.

But I'll admit, I'm more like the Rain Man of Mensans.

When I joined Mensa in the early 1990's, there was no common Internet, so we would get together via snail mail and telephone at like various restaurants and just eat and talk smack on stupid people.  I never paid my Mensa fees after college, when the non-student fees kicked in.

That's the free market for you. But, I was still am a Mensan because I qualified when 98% of the bell curve never could.  Mensa really doesn't seem to get the free market, but maybe they have better digital benefits (like 1990's era America OnLine has partnered with LifeLock to provide membership value) these days. I dunno, and I stopped being an active member of Mensa pretty quick

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): And, I see recently added Dr, like your hero Peter Venkman, to the front of your name I did you recently finish your doctoral dissertation?

@PeeteySDee: It's actually Dr. Peter Venkman, and of course I didn't just get my doctorate. I don't have free time for that crap. I'm a working class hero, you dick.  do have two Master of Science degrees, both with incredibly awesome theses which added immensely to science's foundational knowledge, but I don't have any plans to finish a legitimate doctorate, because then I'd be even deeper in debt and wouldn't get a better job because of it... in science. In Progressiville, doctorates equal promotions. 

In real science land, it means teaching. Teaching can be death, unless your mission is to indoctrinate. 

Those who who can do. Those who can't teach. Those who can do neither become PhD's in college and work for tenure, much like our representative class in Congress.

If I want to teach I can, but I can do, so I do, I don't teach, unless I have to teach, and then I do that too.

But really, my doctorate is a Twitter doctorate that anyone can get and it it looks really nice in your name. It adds a certain panache--a certain Je ne se pas--to my Tweets, don't you think?

But it doesn't mean I'm any less a scientist. But it's a cool trend I wanted to imitate. Lots of us wanna be Philosopher Kings like Jonathan Gruber are doing it. But he's got a real PhD. Sexy.

And it makes me feel dirty, FWIW, that I have that worthless lie in front of my name. Wierd, huh.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): What are you doing right now?

@PeeteySDee: Publishing this post. Go rub one off.

Woot! A nice cancerous woman has bequeathed me $35,000,000!


She wants me to establish a charity home for the upkeep of: widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially--but I think I'll just spend it on high-priced hookers, as I think they fall into the general realm of her intent.

I haven't posted one of these Nigerian 419 scam letters recently, and this one caught my eye.  Many people probably wonder who would be actually stupid enough to fall for one of a scam like this since they are so well known.  Then they might wonder--what idiot would email these silly worded things out anyway--they are so obviously fake!

It's quite simple; the clever idea is to exclude the smart people and only attract the true rubes.  The Freakonomics guys cover the economics behind the concept in their new book I highly recommend (especially on audio, cause it's author read), "Think Like a Freak."

This scam has a slightly new take on it--someone asking me to contact someone else, which I did.  Turns out there is a Larrissa Tucker student at Emporia College in Kansas, and she's an honor roll student, to boot.  I'm not sure about the hinky email domain address, though, with that "g" in from of the emporia.edu, so I didn't reply to her.  What the hell is she doing up at 2:11 AM, anyway?

I am Mrs. Felicia Nathan, suffering from cancerous ailment. I was married to Sir Johnson Nathan an English shipping tycoon notable for his great charitable activities before his death in March 24th, 2010.


When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of Thirty Five Million Us dollars ($35,000,000.00 USD) which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market with a Bank in West Africa and named me as the beneficiary of this trust fund. (All records are kept with my family lawyer). Presently, this money is still with the Bank. 

My Doctor told me recently, that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems that I have been suffering from,Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition with the Cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen me, I have decided to donate this fund to YOU and i want you to use this gift which comes from my Late husbands effort to establish a charity home for the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my husband hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures, which is the reason i took this bold decision. I do not need any telephone Communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my Husband relatives around me. Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated Herein.

Hope to hear from you soon. Remain Blessed,

Mrs. Felicia Nathan.


Turns out there is no "Sir Johnson Nathan." You'd think a rich tycoon "notable for his great charitable activities" would turn up quickly on Google, but not so.  Pretty strange for this Nigerian scammer to use someone not verifiable, but perhaps that's an extra layer of the rube selection process--it would certainly exclude a lot of less rube-ish people once they drop out after they couldn't verify this woman's dead husbands name.

In fact, the name "Johnson Nathan" is so rare, Google force-returns you "Nathan Johnson," another rare name, because it thinks you're so stupid to ask for it.

Again, another way to select for only the most gullible people.  I think the problem is that people this stupid probably wouldn't have very much money to steal, let alone have the actual literacy to read email in the first place. 

Jonathan Gruber, anyone? He's pretty stupid.

#ProfilesInTweepage Number One: @PeeteySDee (Pt.One)

Profiles in Tweepage is a new series here at the Letters From My Good Friend Peter S. Dee Blog.  But then, nearly everything is new here.  The idea is simple. Interview Tweeps I follow and find interesting; chances are you will too, even if you're a douchebag #Progressive bent on destroying America because you're too much of a pussy to emigrate somewhere more amenable for you.  I'll also highlight some of their very best Tweets.  Most I speak with are normal Americans with a story, and everyone has a story.  I'm only going to select the best to profile.

First up is me, of course.  I wouldn't ask Tweeps to do something I wouldn't do myself.  This will be updated in parts.


I'll ask myself some questions and then highlight some of the Tweets I consider some of the best of. 


#TRIGGERWARNING for psychological nudity, NSFW, and NC17.






LET THE INQUISITION BEGIN!

1. Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): So, Peetey, why Twitter? I see your account opened in July of 2010.  Why do you do it? 

@PeeteySDee: I didn't get Twitter.  I was on Facebook which seemed pretty cool.  It seemed, based on peripheral friend chatter that Twitter was a place for kids to chat via smartphone.  I did the chat room stuff on AOL in the mid-90's naked in front of a Compaq PC, and I wasted a lot of time doing it.  Kinda, wasted. I mean there is a lot of peer-reviewed research that says regular orgasms prevent prostate cancer, so we'll see. Funny thing was, back then it took 3-5 minutes for one jpg to down load, so it had better be a good photo.

I'll be honest, I'm not sure what I was doing in July 2010 which would make me join Twitter.  I was deployed to Iraq at the time, and I certainly had no time to Tweet.  Since then, I've got almost 20,000 Tweets, which is, like, I dunno, 11 or so Tweets per day. But I was't really active on it until after Andrew died in March 2012, so those numbers are deceptive.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee):  Do you mean Andrew Breitbart?

@PeeteySDee: Yes.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): Pourquoi did Andrew matter so much to vous vis a vis la Twitter?

@PeeteySDee: Well, it's funny you ask, and it's funny you mix French and Latin and English in that question.  I knew and appreciated who Andrew was before he died in March 2012, but I didn't really know who he was, if you get me--how important he was, that is.  In the few days after he died I watched nearly every single YouTube video of him speaking or antagonizing The Left.  Not long after he died, I downloaded the audio version of his book "Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World!"

In that book, Andrew explained why Twitter was important to him in fighting the Culture War.  Interestingly enough, it opened my mind enough to use Twitter for other purposes, which included marketing, research, and keeping up on news in real time, or stuff for my regular job(s).  And then Twitter went public on the NASDAQ.  Twitter is legit, and it's going to be important for a long time. Twitter is the The Drudge Report 1995, but on crack steroids... or as the kids call it nowhere, "steroids on crack."

Smoking Hot Asian MILF Michelle Malkin started a website based off Twitter called "Twitchy," which is a sweet, but not perfect, repository for Twitter silliness.  Anthony Wiener showed his dick on Twitter, leading to his downfall, and what thousands of other regular, stupid people have unintelligently posted on Twitter have led to a ton of career changes--all in 140 characters or less.  At this point, Twitter is too big too fail, although I suspect Net Neutrality would kill it and make the Internet so boring as to be Atari 2600ish... today, but not in the 70's when we spent hours playing Adventure, which is actually still really sweet to play, kinda, for five minutes or so.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): What was your first Tweet?

@PeeteySdee:  I don't remember and don't have the inclination to go see, but I but it was something stupid like "Hi." or "Test," or "This is my first Tweet."

I kinda want to talk about what happened somewhat recently, actually.  It's really illustrative of who I am on Twitter and what I'm trying to do there. My faith in people on Twitter was ultimately re-enforced as a few folks who didn't previously follow me stood up under a "less-than-withering" assault by one @stonewall_77.

I said some something to generate a point, and this Conservative reactionary instantly insulted me.  Unfortunately, Twitter is a refuge for some really scary people.  Its what makes it fun, also. because everyone plays on Twitter, so you can be forewarned. They do walk among us in real life, and they even write books.

Those who really bother me though, are the ones #TheLeft would call #RWNJs. They do nothing beneficial to help us win the Culture War.  You know the type--the kind where you think, "these are the crazy #Conservatives who create all the bad press, conspiracy theories, and none of the solutions."

The Todd Akins of the world, as one good example.

One Tweep I follow (and, who you should too, is Ban Collectivism (@mrgeology).  He Tweeted this one night, and I RT'd when I saw it Friday.

I must have seen it on @GOPMaryinCA's timeline, but she has since deleted her breathlessly Tweeting something like "Reagan is the greatest president, ever," which prompted me to respond with something that to me is relatively an uncontroversial thought, and it is this:

You'd have thought I just twisted a kitten's neck off, because here came the reactionary #RWNJs:

Instead of critically evaluating the Tweet, and having a discussion--asking why I might say this--Lee Jackson shuts his mind and immediately insults me.  Amazingly, he is able to discern "baseless reasoning" and "profound lack of logic" from what is actually nothing but a very simple assertion I assert.  The man's a genius!

What followed was ugly, and I said a lot of things I'm not proud of, but I didn't delete anything.  I was blocked by both reactionary @Stonewall_77 and the mindless Conservative reactionary parrot @GOPMaryinCA.

To MaryBeth's (@drchich2001) credit, she is clearly a level-headed critical thinker, and remained talking with me even while I was angrily ranting--in her direction.  She helped calm me down and by the end we became Twitter friends.  I even invited her to stay at our house when she comes to visit Gettysburg someday.

You can read all that exchange here: https://twitter.com/PeeteySDee/status/533485680635437056

You can follow some of the better conversations here; it's just too long to repost it its entirety.

I'd like to address Lee Jackson for a moment, the reactionary coward who is nothing at all like his name's sake, Stonewall. Seriously, this dude's Twitter handle couldn't be more inappropriate. He dishonors both great American West Point Generals Lee and Jackson simultaneously.  






You can read the rest of here, where I pick up another open-minded friend, in addition to my insanely attractive Canadian defender Rush 2112 fan MLP (@MARYLOU2112), and that would be Latin-speaker Texan ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ #Benghazi (@emaleroland):

https://twitter.com/PeeteySDee/status/533446690687426560

Evidently Lee Jackson is some sort of an author, so, of course, he's going to find himself incredibly intelligent and self-important. He's like a Conservative Philosopher King Wannabe; his promotional autobiographies drip with douche-baggery. I encourage you to read them, but have a vomit bag nearby.

I know his type well by serving with so many of them. He was the officer no one liked, but is tolerated as a self-important asshole, and a self-important West-Pointer, at that.  I'm embarrassed that critical thinking isn't a skill West Point teaches, but man, Lee Jackson sure has a pretty way with fiction, "bringing the heat" to The Cold War and such.  That he was never fragged is testament to the discipline of the American soldier--or that he never really served in any important roles.  I bet the Afghanis and Iraqis loved his advice and visits, also as an American DoD civilian adviser.

Inquisitor (@PeeteySDee): So what point did you want to make with that Tweet that caused all this nastiness among people who you'd think would normally get along?

@PeeteySDee: Well, no. your premise is wrong. It's well established people among the same sort of ingroup are often more hostile to one-another.  What is interesting, though, is that Lee Jackson and that Mary parrot from CA assumed I was not part of their tribe simply because I spoke heresy to their closed RWNJ minds.

When I was in 4th Grade, I wrote President Reagan a letter backing his plans for Minuteman and MX missile deployment in Europe, as well as support for SDI and the B-1 Lancer.  My dad was a Democrat, so I wasn't getting this "stuff" from him.

I named my first-born child after Reagan.

I don't know how you get any more Reaganite than I--other than being Ronald Reagan, cause neither of his kids ain't it, although I guess Michael isn't too bad.

My previous cover, before the #Radagast2016 for President campaign flyer was Reagan riding a giant velociraptor:




So, yes, I get kinda of pissed off when supposed tolerant and erudite Conservatives insult me without considering my point of view. 

My point in saying Obama might end up bring "greater" than Reagan is simply this: President Obama has done some amazingly "great" damage to the concept of America and Americanism, possibly greater damage than the Greatness Reagan was able to restore to America in the 1980's.  The scandals, the complicity of the press... Obamacare.  

All of it is rather stunning.

That's it.  That was the point I was making.  Ironically, Lee Jackson feels the same way, in the sense he believes our country is under assault, as do I.  It's a shame he's such a dick.
