Question for those in news media...
Posted - 2/7/2013 3:54:57 PM | show profile | flag this post
What do you know about kids being forced to wear some form of microchip either around their necks or implanted in uniforms to track kids all day long. Supposedly this is being proposed or is already happening in Texas.
What do you know about a government plan to microchip ALL Americans?
I've got some crazy zealots in the Caribbean who are going on and on about the US doing these things, they have posted video from NBC that seems to be manipulated. They have another video of school children being micro chipped one way or another to track their every move...I think they are insane and paranoid.
I thought you guys would perhaps have some actual facts about this; so I can report back to them from people who actually know this is bullshit or it isn't. Thank you for your help. NG

This story explains a pilot program and the objections to it, such as a religious object on grounds that it's "the mark of the beast":

Micro-chipping ALL Americans...
is just a conspiracy theory circulated by the anti-Obamacare folks (the same people who claimed there'd be...cue scary music..."Death Panels").
It would never survive a test in the courts, violating just about every Constitutional privacy right embodied in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 9th, and 14th Amendments.

I spent too much time arguing with them this morning. I saw the one you posted GD, there was another they posted that included dramatic music and scriptures from the bible.
They are very religious and starting to see America as the Devil itself, the mark of the beast and all that. The whole idea is so insane on every level.
How far do you think the crazy wingnuts will take this?

nikon.. you're welcome..no charge..:-)
how far will the wingnuts take it?
they have no limits..witness the "truthers" around newtown..
there is no sense of decency..no sense of intrusion into the lives of bereaved parents..
no sense at all..
but we're used to that from them, aren't we?

What I mean is how far do think they will go to try and make it mandatory to micro chip students (to keep them safe, and know if they are in class or skipping) . It seems they also want to micro chip people with their health care information (just in case of an emergency) the parenthesis are their so-called 'reasons/excuses' for such an invasion of our privacy and civil rights.
Really, this is the first I have heard about this in the US. I have heard about wanting to micro chip for health purposes but not all this other insanity.

nikon.. i've never heard of actually microchipping..
children.. or people, for that matter..
i do know many schools have microchipped the student id's kids often have to carry..and i'm not sure i have a problem with that..
so long as the range of the reader doesn't extend beyond the school grounds..
i can see knowing where the kids are when they're on campus..but beyond that, it's not my business.. or the school's..

Good news is;
Thanks to the internet, you can Google 'obama microchips' and get all the sordid conspiracy details that would make even cruise blush. Or you can Google 'obama microchips hoax' and get the boring truth.
Bad news is Nikongirl, from what I read, you should have been "implanted" already, by March 23rd. It said so. Must be true.
And I didn't even have to buy you dinner. No goodnight kiss, you haven't called...

I tried to explain that to them. Left them with the Snopes link, didn't make a difference. It would be funny if they weren't actually serious.
