Controlling the NSA


Nothing ought to be more at the forefront of discussion and thought for Americans today than the continued and ever-expanding violations of our Constitution by our government.

The latest, of course, is the sustained abuse of power by the FBI and NSA (National Security Agency). Beginning with the Bush administration introduction of Draconian, Orwellian, and plain-ol’ Fascist tactics of intercepting private email, phone calls, snail mail, and every other means we have for communicating amongst ourselves, which heretofore we imagined as privileged, our lives must now be an open book: Open to intelligence agencies; Open to the IRS (financial information is shared within various agencies); Open by pass-through to local law enforcement.

There ought to be massive outrage and protest. There ought to be the initial rumblings of civil unrest. There ought to be much more indignation and condemnation by every single American, save, expectantly, by those whose livelihood is made by lasciviously peeping into every recess of our forsaken private lives.

Please say that you’re not too preoccupied with Facebook – one of the very resources through whom the government, by agreement with Facebook, is data-dumping your existence into massive computer banks.

Don’t tell us that you’d like to take the time to write and express your outrage at our government but you’re too busy texting dinner arrangements, while that text and every other you’ve sent is collected and sieved for clues for possible dissension.

Take the time to help counter this outrage. Send an email.

To us…at

Use any subject line you’d like but include several key words for the NSA’s edification. Here are some of the words and phrases for which the NSA scans:

“Terrorism, Al Qaeda, Terror, Attack, Abu Sayyaf, Car Bomb, Somalia, Jihad, Join our Militia, Place the bomb, Fertilizer Bomb, Kill Him, President Should Be…, Time To Change, Get Ready for the Revolution, Nuclear Reactor is…, Peace be Unto You, We Must Keep the Government from…, Time for them to Die” and others. Pick a few.

Do not make an actual threat, though.

If you do, you may find yourself in harm’s way and subject to criminal penalty. Just copy and paste the words, personalizing them in some inoffensive way, and send it to the email address above. Instead, say something like, “My dog, a Nigerian Terrorist, has planted a fertilizer bomb near the white house where I keep my tools. That devil must die.”

What will happen? Ideally NSA traffic will increase to a level that will make it very difficult for them to continue their un-Constitutional trespass for some short period of time while they sift through increased suspect correspondence. At a minimum it will create a little concern.

Notwithstanding how the courts may have ruled regarding the Constitutionality of administrative search warrants and wholesale warrantless searches, any sixth grade student can handily tell you that it is illegal. It’s invasive. It’s criminal. It is not the way we do things in America. It is the way Fascists operate.

So, as Bonnie Raitt said, “Let’s give them something to talk about…”

We won’t read your emails. But we will give you a periodic update to let you know how well you’re doing. O, and if you don’t hear from me for a few weeks, “Send Lawyers, Guns and Money...” Honduras is nice this time of year.
