    This vid... as silly as it starts out to be ... has something embedded in it for everyone here to seriously consider.

    Do not TL-DR this one......

    It's about a diesel truck guy who makes repairs and mods trucks for friends, neighbors and his 'customers'... you know ----> the clowns who black out an intersection for fun..... and coincidentally may have started the Apple Fire (Google that for yerself)

    But even though the innocuous stuff he does on the internet ...... concerning his viewing, ordering, buying, on YouTube, Ebay, Amazon, etc....... it gets him a Red Flag visit from Homeland Security .............

    I really recommend it be watched! This could happen to anyone here on GT .....

    You should presume you are being watched all the time, and everywhere.
    But you already knew that, loyal comrade.

    They had a record of things he had purchased on the internet. Wow, that is where I think I would get ugly and ask for the warrant he used to get that information and then tell him the conversation is over and they can talk to my attorney.

    This is way past absurd. If you homeland twits know so much about my orders then you should know what is in them.

    The other side of this coin - those sights are selling them and advertising them like crazy so apparently someone is buying. Who is buying these things? I cannot imaging there are many decent gun owners with a knowledge of suppressors that are willing to buy illegal crap from china.

    They also record everything you've had for supper.....which is filed by The Department of Health.

    I read an article in the last week or so (it might have been on here) where they were cracking down on suppressors sold on ebay from China. They were raiding the warehouses and getting purchasing invoices about the customers and then showing up to their houses. They don't need a warrant specifically on your purchases, they already have it from purchasing and shipping invoices they seized.

    Very interesting, but not surprising.

    I think Edward Snowden proved we are being watched by our own government.

    That actually seems fairly reasonable but was not the case here. In this case they were monitoring and investigating an innocent citizen without a warrant. If they had a case of suppressors and invoices for people ordering them they have probable cause to investigate and they are working it from the crime end where they should be. BIG difference. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    Snowden told us what smartphones are really for. He wasn't lying either.

    Of course they are... they are watching "your" money, it`s "their" paycheck.
    This is why they want to eliminate currency. Credit cards are easier to track & watch.
