That's my thought, I would like to see a copy of the letter.

Ladies and gentleman,

Let’s not over react to a media story for several reasons of which the least is not that you can’t believe everything you read in the paper. There is a lot of information missing from this article. If all the young man did was to call the President a “prick” than that is not enough to get him banned for life but if he made more aggressive comments or threats then it is possible. I find the whole article suspect for various reasons. First is that the Secret Service monitors and follows up threats to the president not the FBI. The Secret Service would in conjunction with the local police go talk to the young man to assess the threat level to the President and the article does not say anything about that. Also it is the State Department that would deny him a Visa and that would only be after he applied for it, additionally at 17 he is classified as a juvenile and other rules apply. Yes he can still be kept out of the US but it would take more than a simple email. To me I think this is a sensationalized article about a drunk teen that sent a stupid email and the British police were trying to scare him and told him he was banned. I don’t think he is banned.

Quoted for Truth. If this kid really got banned for only an e-mail and it was only calling the POTUS a prick, I am the new King of Wales.

His Royal Highness,

Most posts here and e-mails from home are done while half lit. I'll have to be sure not to e-mail the prez in the evening.

I would like to see the entire email that was sent' however, we know that will never happen. This email had to be threatening in nature and not just the word "P---K"!

Reading the article to be banned, DHS indicated 60 reasons to be banned!

From the Sun paper in the UK:

Obama rant Brit banned from US for life | The Sun |News

Officers will take no criminal action.

Joanne Ferreira, of the US Department of Homeland Security, said there are about 60 reasons a person can be barred.

She added: "We are prohibited

According to this it was not true.

Default Good point Yunus...

I had forgotten about the homebrew fact! It,s a lot of work... but a nice
microbrew is a great way to toast the end of summer & celebrate the arrival
of fall as my favourite time of year!
