verizon – totally founded in the 1750s

george washington had an ipod, and i want one too:

Alberto: President Washington, President Lincoln, President Wilson, President Roosevelt have all authorized electronic surveillance on a far broader scale.

as swattie emeritus pointed out to me yesterday, this has far-reaching implications for our nation’s history. was b franklin’s whole kite thing actually him spying on the redcoats? i’m submitting a foia request as we speak. but i’m willing to bet the material still falls under executive privilege

thank goodness for gmail packrats:

From: Ben Franklin ‘’
Date: Feb 6, 2006 September 10, 1789 11:25 AM
Subject: NSA Warrantless Domestic Wiretaps
To: George Washington ‘’

Madison and those other liberal ‘founder’ pansies are being un-American for disagreeing with us, they’re all French sypmathizers anyway. The Kite Surveillance Program is critical to the health of our fledgling nation. Do they know how long it would take for me to call up Attorney General Edmund Randolph for each and every kite I fly? I don’t even know who that guy is. They should go pass a Bill of Rights if they disagree, or create a system of checks and balances. Psh.

Heterosexually yours,
b franklin
