    Default Big Brother Twenty Five Years Later

    Radio chips coming soon to your driver's license?

    Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.

    The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver's licenses, or "enhanced driver's licenses."

    Don't get "chipped"

    You are being watched

    Within a decade, RFID chips could replace universal product codes, meaning every item on Earth would have its own unique identifier. We might find ourselves "covered with tags shouting out information about the clothing you're wearing, or what's in your purse or wallet," says Scassa.

    Workers already carry RFIDs in the access cards they use to enter and exit their workplaces. Some employers deploy readers throughout the building, Scassa says. "So the employer knows when you go to the bathroom, how long you're in there, how long your cigarette break was. That happens all the time."

    Within a human lifetime, RFIDs will likely be routinely embedded in everyone alive, Haggerty predicts. The process will start in developing world countries, then spread to stigmatized groups in the West, such as pedophiles and those on social assistance. Employers will start making implants a condition of employment. Chipped individuals will get discounts and other privileges. Eventually, having a chip will be essential for everything from voting and driving to shopping and medical care.

    An implant society need not be a nightmare, Haggerty maintains. Making people and processes more visible makes them easier to regulate, he says. And that can be a good thing. The flip side, though, is that you might wake up one day and find you're on the wrong side of some new definition of normal.

    Technologies are morally neutral, but their potential uses are not. During the Second World War, the Nazis used IBM punch cards to identify Jews. "If the government project is coercive, if it's totalitarian," says Haggerty, "it makes for a more perfect coercive, totalitarian governance. You can get more than the trains running on time."

    For ages, he says, we've tried to track and monitor people by putting numbers on things like shirts and bracelets. But those can be removed. "What this does," Haggerty says of RFID implants, "is it ultimately reproduces the Nazi tattoo on the body."

    This is the first that I have heard about this but I can see a socialist or communist government begin to reguire this. Those types of governments need to be able to control their populations access to free speach and information in order to maintain thier control.

    What scares me is that this country is on the fast path now to socialism. If BHO's policies are pushed thru, things such as the fairness doctrine and the erosion of gun ownership rights will be next. And in order to prevent an uprising of the majority that would oppose such policies, they will need to impletement something like this to begin to track our movements and prevent those people to assemble to oppose such things.

    It is not as far fetched as you may think it is.

    As long as we have guns we still have the power to undo the evil.

    We are the last nation on earth that is still feared by government.

    Pinky & the Brain was a masterpiece of creativity.

    My world domination plans are a rework from episode #74.

    I have a poster of 'the Brain' on my wall & have built a small, incense laden, shrine beneath it.

    I believe i have a psychic connection with him, too.
    I am channeling him. lol

    Maybe they are intended to be the "mark of the beast"

    Don't be surprised to find out some day that every child born in this country was implanted with a chip on day one. It would not surprise me if it is not already happening or has been going on for some time.

    It's funny how disrupter completely hates and distrusts the United States military yet will trust the government with almost every area of his life. One institution has proven time and time again that they are here to protect us with their lives.

    The other institution has proven time and time again how dishonest those with power can become.

    The article goes on to say;

    The technology already had been implemented in Washington state, where it is promoted as an alternative to a passport for traveling to Canada. So far, the program is optional.

    But there are other agreements already approved with Michigan, Vermont, New York and Arizona, and plans are under way in other states, including Texas, she said.
