Implanted microchips are getting a plug from a heavy hitter - former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson.
Scott McDonald of the Web site Scan This News once noted: "A lifetime of information can be easily databased using a microchip system. All movement, transactions, and interactions can be recorded and monitored once everyone has their own unique identifier. Every detail of a person's life will be finally accessible to authorities through the widespread use of implanted chips ... it must begin somewhere and school children are the most likely candidate."
You can damnbetcha that there has been and will be opposition to implanting children and the destruction of privacy. However, McDonald suggests, "Some will holler: 'The Constitution this, and the Constitution that.' But only those social misfits, kooks, and rebels with something to hide will hold out strongly."
Oh yeah? Even those social misfits, kooks, and rebels with NOTHING to hide STILL object.
"Little will they know, the very act of objecting, in itself, will suffice to 'identify' them as trouble-makers," continues McDonald. "They can then be arrested and force-chipped as part of the booking process! Besides, most Americans – after they've been reminded of all benefits and services they will sacrifice if they refuse – will soon acquiesce. This is how it worked when Congress enacted laws to coerce parents into numbering their children at birth. A few grumbled for a short while. But, once the threat of no longer being able to claim their children on tax returns set in, they got right in line down at the Social Security Administration and had their children numbered."
