    I'm not usually a conspiracy theorist, but the increased prevelence of the use of biometrics on drivers licenses, which most of us have, concerns me. A passive RFID chip could well be implanted in your DL along with the barcode and magstripe which are ever present. Do you have and use a discount card at a grocery store, or gas station? Ever wonder why the coupons they send you are for just the stuff you buy? Have you yet had a cop just swipe you license, and hand you a pre-printed ticket?
    Have a store clerk ask you for your phone number, your email? Use a credit card, or a debit card? Even write a check? Got a costco membership? Post on RTF PP? Who are all the 'guests'? Log on to Google, Facebook? We chip our dogs...if they get lost they'll come home, right? We should chip your kids, too. If they're all shot to hell in the cafeteria, it'll help us identify them.

    Someone posted a George Carlin video the other day. He's just a comedian, right? Right?

    Every time I go to Lowes they ask me if I have a "My Lowes" card. When I say no, they ask if I want one. Again, NO. It just helps them track my purchases. I don't need to make it any easier for anyone to know what I'm buying.

    People are becoming increasingly comfortable with the goverment watching every aspect of their lives to keep them safe from the bad guys. Putting chips on children starts them down the path of accepting this type of intrusion as a normal part of life. I am not suggesting this is some grand government plan to track and control the population, yet, but before you know it we'll all have GPS devices in our cars to tax us on actual mileage(and therefore track movement), chips in our drivers licenses that log our whereabouts when near a reader, cameras on every corner feeding data into facial recognition software, cameras taking pictures of license plates at stop lights, electronic medical records tied to our SSN's, access to credit card and bank accounts, etc. All of this information stored in various goverment databases with business intelligence software continually evaluating our behavior patterns looking for dangerous, risky, or illegal behavior. You might say, " What's wrong with this? The government is protecting us. They have our best interests in mind and are like our parents watching out for us".

    In my opinion, it's the governments plan to track everything we do....It's so easy for the government to step in and "look out for us" when they've created a society so dependent on them for everything else.

    I think the chip with your ss# embedded in a badge is a bad thing. Its to easy to loose. If they inject it in your hand or fore head it will be a whole lot easier to read or scan.
    Its way better than a credit card because those things get lost or ruined from rubbing together. So the embedded chip seems like the way to go. Just think the time we can save in line at the grocery store. We can never be really lost again. its great for the now gang that excepts technology. Except like dinosaurs like me who won't do it and would rather die than let some one inject me with a high tech chip,,, ( because I am afraid of needles), From what I hear from the conspiracy nuts is this NWO wants a cashless society,,,,if thats the case,,,,I'll have to grow my own food if I can find a seed that can reproduce. Or use a gun to help get meat if they allow me to have one that is.

    For once I agree with JD. These day it's "virtually" impossible to avoid. Everything we do is computerized in some shape or fashion. I have a card for the printer in my office... Don't even take it out of the wallet. Just wave it at the printer and the machine kicks out just my copies. Credit cards, etc... We already have all that stuff right in our pockets.
