    Federal agents enlisted local police to scan cars’ plates at gun shows. WSJ

    Jay Stanley, a lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union, said the gun-show surveillance “highlights the problem with mass collection of data.” He said law enforcement can take two entirely legal activities, like buying guns and crossing the border, “and because those two activities in concert fit somebody’s idea of a crime, a person becomes inherently suspicious.”

    Hard to read the articles when you have to either sign in or subscribe to the WSJ.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    AdBlock and Ghostery. Works very well every else I go. But quickly kicks me out here.

    So to stay and enlighten you all with my knowledge and inspiration I must see the ads here. Fair trade I guess.

    My default browser is Adblock for iOS here on this iPad. I only use Safari when I need an OS specific function capability. I have a TOR Onion browser for snooping and a Firefox for when nothing else works.
