This is the most significant freedom/liberty issue currently on the table.

Those who submit to this are leading humanity toward slavery.

And I'm not talking some kind of religious issue. I'm simply speaking to the obvious long-term results of such technology.

It will be abused. "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely."

“There’s nothing pulsing or sending out a signal,” said Mr Darks, who has had a chip in his own arm.

This article is without the usual innuendos/word plays of a hoax article, so one is left to ask, "What's in a name?".

I'm betting he has a silent partner named Mr. Hyde forming the duo known as Darks/Hyde.

I agree. Apart for all the theological "end times" stuff we could get into, this seems to me to be ripe for "identity" theft and abuse. I think people need to think hard and long about this (which they won't do). It sound cool and neat. Having your medical records in one place is one thing. Having all your information in the palm of your hand is a little bit more scarier. Personally I like my stuff being a little bit convoluted.

I think its an excellant idea for the illegals, muslims and sex offenders.
And go a step further to have a microcharge of HE if they screw up.

If one muzzie in the US blows him or herself up 100 random muzzies also self detonate with imbedded micro explosives.

Problems eliminated.

"The technology’s defenders say it is acceptable as long as it is not compulsory."

No, it will be termed 'mandatory compliance'. This is something for which there needs to be a Constitutional amendment. There will be too many ways to weasel around the 13th.

Healthy People 2010

Before Bill Clinton left office, he authorized 2001 an 84% increase in the government's investment in nanotechnology research and development, National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) http://clinton4.nara.gov/WH/New/html/20000121_4.html and made it a top priority.

* This governmental increase has been combined with non-governmental organizations (NGO) and grant programs. These NGOs have been creating partnerships with existing governmental agencies and masking initiatives as Federal and State grant reward programs. They are not.
* Here, at the CDC is an overview of what is called, Healthy People 2010 http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/about/otheract/hpdata2010/abouthp.htm .
* As you can see from www.cdc.gov/nchs/about/otheract/hpdata2010/abouthp.htm, the initiative is driven with 28 different categories. All of these categories have grant award programs that are awarding monies through various agencies to promote a ‘healthy initiative program'. Some of the programs alone, sound harmless. When they are tied together though, they are disturbing.

* Former President Clinton's budget for his NATIONAL NANOTECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE is fueled by funding from the National Nanotechnology Initiative, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy and the Department of Defense in combination with private and nonprofit funds from non-governmental organizations.

These funds now make available monies for grant projects for:

Focus Areas at a Glance (28)

* Access to Quality Health Services
* Arthritis, Osteoporosis and Chronic Back Conditions

* Cancer
* Chronic Kidney Disease
* Diabetes
* Disability and Secondary Conditions
* Educational and Community-Based Programs
* Environmental Health
* Family Planning
* Food Safety
* Health Communication
* Heart Disease and Stroke
* Immunizations and Infectious Diseases
* Nutrition and Overweight
* Injury and Violence Prevention
* Maternal, Infant, and Child Health
* Medical Product Safety
* Mental Health and Mental Disorders
* Occupational Safety and Health

* Oral Health
* Physical Activity and Fitness
* Public Health Infrastructure
* Respiratory Diseases
* Sexually Transmitted Diseases -STD
* Substance Abuse
* Tobacco Use
* Vision and Hearing



* An association, state, or company applies for the grants to fund these initiatives
* In turn they authorize a Freedom of Information Release to all their data. This is a sample of the data collected from a grant application. All the data requirements are the same, the only difference is the partnered agency that is acting as a liaison for relaying the data. Example, this one below is using the USDA as the partnered liaison. If this was a hospital application, it would say the CDC.

Parents Protest School Mandate That Students Wear Radio ID Tags
Posted by BenLurkin

Associated Press ^ | -02-09-05 1927EST | Lisa Leff
SUTTER, Calif. (AP) - The only grade school in this rural town is requiring students to wear radio frequency identification badges that can track their every move. Some parents are outraged, fearing it will rob their children of privacy. The badges introduced at Brittan Elementary School on Jan. 18 rely on the same radio frequency and scanner technology that companies use to track livestock and product inventory. While similar devices are being tested at several schools in Japan so parents can know when their children arrive and leave, Brittan appears to be the first U.S. school district to embrace such...

The "VeriChip" which is what the article is referring to has recently been proven it can be cloned.

"I will briefly describe the steps that I went through to duplicate an ID-only RFID tag using my proxmarkii device. We will be cloning a Verichip, which should not rationally make any of this more interesting but does."
http://cq.cx/verichip.pl



Apparently the company that just had two of their employees 'chipped' was not aware of that fact.



"No one I spoke with at Six Sigma Security or at CityWatcher knew that the VeriChip had been hacked," said McIntyre, author of a chapter titled "Hacking the Prox Card" for Simson Garfinkel's recent "RFID: Applications, Security, and Privacy."

"They were also surprised to hear of VeriChip's downsides as a medical device," he added. "It was clear they weren't aware of some of the controversy surrounding the implant."

This goes a bit beyond that. Implied in having an employee 'mandatorily comply' with having an implanted chip is that the employee is the property of the employer.
The United States fought its bloodiest war in history over that concept.

Actually, there is even more problems then identity threft and theology.

All of your data goes into a corporate digital library by Monsanto Company.

http://nationalpropertyowners.org/nonais.html

Monsanto also enjoys patenting genes.

Funding for all these new microchiping is made possible by UN granting.

Grant monies give ownership to the NGOs for everything their monies touch.


Monsanto Foundations are one of the funders of the NGOs.

Yeah, people will find all kinds of excuses (concienteous objection, etc.) to not comply. This has to be absolutely obligatory for ALL US citizens, then there will be no confusion - and HUGE advantages on the battlefield, reduces friendly fire incidents dramatically they say. Anyway, be prepared for the ACLU to find LOTS of BS excuses why people should not submit, but let's separate the wheat from the chaff ONCE AND FOR ALL.

I don't think it's the privacy of the children most of these parents are concerned about but probably the privacy of the parents as the kids sit out in the car while the parents are some where where they shouldn't be.

If they go ahead with this in the future the reason you'll see people agreeing with it is because they will be given a choice to either comply or not get hired. Think of drug tests ....no one ever complains about them anymore. In fact they are normal and expected. The same thing will happen with implants, especially as the technology becomes smaller (although it is already extremely small).

Yes, I mispelled "instantly" - now you will use ACLU jedi-knight pretend-conservative mindfog to draw attention away from the fact that the technology YOU OPPOSE would let the police and border control agents INSTANTLY identify undesireables. INSTANTLY meaning BEFORE they do the deed and then appeal to traitorous liberal judges.

You oppose this? Just a yes or a no, leave out the ACLU talk.
