True then, true now

Here's quick test for you. Who said the following:

"The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either."

A) Some nutcase Liberal against the Patriot Act.
B) One of them long-haired hippy freaks.
C) Ben Franklin, a major figure in the founding of this country.

Um yeah, it's neither A nor B...guess that just leaves C. But what did Ben Franklin know about patriotism?

Yep, I've heard that one. Ben Franklin: than damn anti-american commie bastard!

Shawn said...

I've seen pictures of him...he certainly looks like a hippy and everyone knows he spent time in the company of loose women while in France...and who but a stoner would fly a kite in a thunderstorm?

And besides, he's to blame for daylight savings!

That's the tag line I use for e-mail.

That's actually one of my favorite quotes. And Ben Franklin is one of my favorite people. Great with the ladies too.
