    NorthAmericanJock saidRFID technology. Your privacy potentially being violated. Not to mention would you be the first human infected by a computer virus or hacked into! Lol. Of course they are trying to promote it by saying its beneficial to us. It will help in medical treatment/ patient identification, locate you, bank accounts, operate your car with it to prevent theft as well. Fight immigration even. All sorts of identification purposes. They use it in dogs & livestock as well. Basically a way of tracking.
    So... would you want this National I.D. card implanted in you? Whether you consider the benefits of it or if there is an ulterior motive to this technology.

    So when healthcare evolves into this new way of doing things, I wonder will we really have a choice. Despite it all, the gov't has other ways, things they should have done to fight immigration, etc. I don't need something surgically implanted in me. So hell no!

    Why? Why not? What if they made you? Would you be outraged or willing?




    Yes. And you will be assimilated. You will be assimilated. You will be assimilated.

    If you want my honest opinion, this is bordering on paranoia. Yes, we should be concerned about stopping a growing government but this just isn't close to being an issue right now. Too many conspiracy theories starts making us look like loonies.

    Amazing. How come the right-wingers had no complaints when the Bush Administration was perpetrating the most serious assaults on citizen privacy in our history? Indeed, most actively supported warrantless wiretaps, interception of e-mail, warrantless searches, and countless other abuses.

    And when Democrats wanted Congressional oversight, investigations & accountability the Republicans stonewalled those efforts, giving the Bush Administration unprecedented free rein. Pure, unadulterated hypocrisy, reflecting a scornful belief that the American people have such short memories that you can pull the wool over their eyes and get away with anything these days.

    There have been complaints, believe me. Bush is a bad example of a small government conservative. But at the end of the day issues boil down to choosing between bad and worse. Republicans may be bad but democrats are worse.

    I love ron paul. Too bad he'll never get elected because liberals hate his free market and small government principles and the crazy religious rightwing doesn't like the fact that gays might get equal rights and marijuana might become legalized.

    As an FYI, to hopefully calm some of the hysteria that I am observing on this thread, the "National Healthcare Identifier for Individuals" initiative is on official hold by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, until more research on standards for format, security, privacy, and other issues are worked out.

    More information on an independent effort to develop this voluntary unique healthcare identifier can be obtained from Global Patient Identifiers, Inc. at HTTP://www.gpii.info

    Yep. It was around the time when he pushed for wiretapping et al. But then it got silenced...but I've been watching it online and keeping up with it silently. That's all I have to say about it at this time. icon_wink.gif

    RFID technology has been around for years. I was researching it for my company as it relates and competes with POS ... shit, must have been six years ago.

    Big friggin' deal. It's only now hitting mainstream media b/c of Wal-Mart? WTF. People need to get lives of their own and stop being so damn paranoid.

    This is a case of people who don't understand the technology. Kinda sad too.

    I wouldn't get an implant myself. Mostly because i don't need it. But if I was at risk for let's say black outs, or similar conditions, I definitely would! Hell, it doesn't even need to be implants. They can make a fashionable bracelet or earring, or even ankle bracelet so it's not actually in you. The idea of implants are ensures that those with tags will never forget it, like their wallet or keys.

    Most cell phones now have location based services. And within reason, can be tracked. Hell- a woman was saved by her son's Blackberry after he left it in her car and she was reported missing with her car. The police were able to find her because of it.

    The truth is, people hear about new things, and all the fear from movies creep in on them and make them paranoid...

    Is there a GOOD example of a small government conservative? And please don't say Regan. He created the war on drugs and set in motion the entire infrastructure to fight it that will never get smaller, all to fight a "war" that cannot be won in the manner we've been fighting it for decades.

    I would have to say no, I feel there are too many things that could go wrong. Besides, I almost always have my road I.D. band on icon_smile.gif
