    The US government putting microchips in Americans?

    Hi, I read this article here: http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul136.htm

    Basically the author is saying by a certain time (some say March 2013), the US government will be putting MANDATORY chips in all Americans, including babies. I don't know how true it is? I am not an American so I am not familiar with the US politics. I am just wondering if there are some American posters who can explain the situation to me. Just how close are you to being microchipped by your government? What are your thoughts on this?

    Personally I think this is a good thing. It's a step in the right direction. pretty soon we will have government mandated brain implants.

    Dogs are commonly micro-chipped. Not by other dogs, mind, but by human beings. How's that for fair? Oppressive much?

    Initially, I was concerned that micro-chipping was related to microwaved french-fried potatoes. Meh. Even though so called "oven chips" have come a long way - in fact they rival in some cases the delicious flavour of McDonalds french fries - actual fried chipped potatoes, from a deep fat fryer, with week-old oil that has been re-used too many times in an effort to save on costs, will always be the perfect accompaniment to battered cod, haddock or rock-salmon - which is in fact a euphemism, as it's actually dogfish, although I am unsure whether the dogfish in question have been micro-chipped.

    So yeah. I couldn't agree more, or indeed, less.

    between the words "haddock" and "rock-salmon" I thought for a brief second that Lozy was talking about something being rock hard...

    Damn, I need to get laid. -.- or try to clean the filth out of my mind but that would mean i would be an entirely different person.

    I MAY have heard something about this, but i've slept over the years. I have heard of chips being planted in school IDs and there was an uproar about that because one student refused to wear hers as she felt it was an invasion of privacy for when she was at home. The school argued that it was to track her in case she was truant or tardy or whatever. Casey, my spoiled rotten, almost 4 year old pup, is supposedly chipped.

    It's bad enough NSA has stuff on us and there are talks of getting chipped. Well, good luck trying to catch me. I'm small and flexible enough to hide in the sneakiest of places.

    No.

    This is nonsense. Nothing like that is happening, nor will it happen in any foreseeable future. This is what happens when paranoid schizophrenics (and those who would like to profit from them) can openly compare notes on the internet and not be considered crazy by one another.

    It is going on. Human beings have been 'chipping dogs for years. Do the dogs even want it?

    You'll say that dogs aren't important, they cannot even vote. Like criminals. So, dogs are no better than criminals in your eyes? Don't you love your dog? I mean care about your dog, not love it, cos that would be, you know, strange and maybe a little wrong. Not judging here, do whatever you want, yeah? But no.

    We have dog taxes here, the chips are the new dog tags.

    Regarding people, it might be a waste of time. At the time such a law is passed, we may be far enough with nanomachines to sneak them into people through e.g. mandatory vaccinations. Who knows, perhaps a new terrible disease will be designed just to ensure this

    March was 3 months ago...

    There's no need for mandatory chips because, apparently, most Americans want to be monitored/tracked/"protected" by daddy government anyway. There's SIN numbers, passports, driver's licenses, surveillance, home searches without warrants, reading of private e-mails, and a criminal record system itching to ruin careers. What more could people want?

    Honestly it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if they tried this, and I can absolutely see it happening at some point in the future. Provided the world hasn't fallen into some kind of post WW3 dystopia by then of course.

    How about a chip implant that combines all of these things into one convenient system?

    That does sound like the progression of things. However, I think the nation will spiral down before it happens.
