The conservative right and some left say it is the end of times. The preppers now have some sort of distorted logic by building bunkers and the rest of us are angry or just don't care.
I am not afraid. I am concerned and angry. I want my freedom to pick my nose or scratch my hiney without the world knowing it. I want the right to pay with dollars or ATM or even barter and trade goods but these things are appearing to be out of my control with every day that passes. I read up on MB's diary about China keeping track of us and there was a comment about a chip and it being lost at a Starbucks.. I thought...yes that is close to the truth. I started doing a little research without Ron Paul or a so called preacher putting the notion in my head. I wanted to know some truth. I did a little research because I am concerned over my privacy. I have nothing to hide but that is not the point. I have the right to privacy.. Period.
Here are some interesting things you may already know about but I was kind of shocked. From Wikepedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/...
Implantable RFID chips designed for animal tagging are now being used in humans. An early experiment with RFID implants was conducted by British professor of cybernetics Kevin Warwick, who implanted a chip in his arm in 1998. In 2004 Conrad Chase offered implanted chips in his night clubs in Barcelona and Rotterdam to identify their VIP customers, who in turn use it to pay for drinks.They are mandated many places and here is more info
The Food and Drug Administration in the US has approved the use of RFID chips in humans. Some business establishments give customers the option of using an RFID-based tab to pay for service, such as the Baja Beach nightclub in Barcelona. This has provoked concerns into privacy of individuals as they can potentially be tracked wherever they go by an identifier unique to them. There are concerns this could lead to abuse by an authoritarian government or lead to removal of freedoms.
MandatesWal-Mart and the United States Department of Defense have published requirements that their vendors place RFID tags on all shipments to improve supply chain management. Due to the size of these two organizations, their RFID mandates impact thousands of companies worldwide. The deadlines have been extended several times because many vendors face significant difficulties implementing RFID systems. In practice, the successful read rates currently run only 80%, due to radio wave attenuation caused by the products and packaging. In time it is expected that even small companies will be able to place RFID tags on their outbound shipments.I do not know about you but I am a human being and wish to be treated as such.
An EPC RFID tag used by Wal-Mart.
In January 2005, Wal-Mart required its top 100 suppliers to apply RFID labels to all shipments. To meet this requirement, vendors use RFID printer/encoders to label cases and pallets that require EPC tags for Wal-Mart. These smart labels are produced by embedding RFID inlays inside the label material, and then printing bar code and other visible information on the surface of the label.
In October 2005 the University of Arkansas' Information Technology Research Institute released a report on its preliminary study of the impact of RFID on reducing retail out-of-stocks and concluded that RFID reduced out of stocks (OOS) by 21% over non-RFID based stores.
Two years later the Wall Street Journal published an article titled "Wal-Mart's Radio-Tracked Inventory Hits Static."[this quote needs a citation] The articles stated that the RFID plan set forth by Wal-Mart was "showing signs of fizzling"[this quote needs a citation] due to a lack of progress by Wal-Mart executives to introduce the technology to its stores and to the lack of incentives for suppliers.
U.S. Department of DefenseThe DoD requirements for RFID tags on packages of military supplies is prescribed in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplements (DFARS) 252.211-7006. Positioning of the tag needs to be completed in accordance with the clause and definitions in MIL STD 129 and as of 1 March 2007, EPC Global tags must comply with EPCglobal Class 1 Generation 2 specification.[
Not treated as an article of clothing or piece of meat being shipped in from China or any other country. I want my own ability to choose my method of payment, or not live in a robotic state. The bad news is that there are eyes in the skies and these devices can be manipulated and in my opinion nothing beats a gut instinct or good old fashion know how. Humans will always be cruel and not act humane but the thought of all of this altering of food and climate change due to fracking and drilling and implanting is not progess. It causes distraction of the spirit of mankind, to live in a human not matrix state of affairs. Where has all of this progress brought us? More war? More destruction? More violence? What good has become from the technology that we possess in a moderate state? We human do nothing moderately.
I think of the possibilites of secrecy that we do not even know about. I am more concerned for our future generations because this may all be normal to them in a very strange way. They will never know perhaps what life is like to not have every move watched and documented. This is not conspiracy. This is fact and if it were not ..tell me why would our Vice President ask this question of Judge Roberts during confirmation about this very thing ?
Life in this world is changing.......in my opinion not for the better but we must encourage one another to keep hoping some sanity returns, along with out right to privacy.. Maybe MB saying move along was prophetic, as there is nothing we can do really because we can't stop them..The policy makers. The Treasury... The 1 percent.
I wish we could... I just don't see how.
Oh yeah, and when did Walmart or the DOD ever and I mean ever have any American's
best interest at heart ? If they are for it, we sure should be against it.
