"If what we read today can result in a subpoena or a search warrant tomorrow, fear replaces freedom. We presented three witnesses who said there would, in fact, be a chilling effect if the Tattered Cover was forced to turn over the information."
Dan Recht
lawyer for the Tattered Cover bookstore ordered to turn over records of customers and the books they purchased.

"fear replaces freedom"...I don't recall "fear", especially of government being an American trait. I'd like to think the avarage American Patriot stands openly in defiance of Governmental "Big Brother" intrusion and tyranny. Restore the Republic.

    Intimidation is the real game here. "We are watching you." Like that all-seeing eye on the dollar bill...

    Archer, you mean on the "Federal Reserve" debt note. ;-)

    FEAR? nothing to fear but fear itself! It is they who should have the fear, They are in breach of contract, The law and the Oath they took, Treason is some heavy stuff and so is war crimes.
