they can take your laptop, or anything else, for no reason at all, forever, and disclose anything they find to anyone they feel like:

That's a remarkably broad mandate.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
