    Deer Fly Repellent Strips. Crazy or Genius?

    I don't have a problem with law enforcement getting a court order to track the movements or phone calls of people who are suspected of criminal acts, but this type of blanket surveillance of everybody is getting out of control. How long before they're watching you in your own home...
