    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. -.- :coffee: or try to clean the filth out of my mind but that would mean i would be an entirely different person. :D

    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 :evil:

    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.

    That may not prevent it from happening, however.

    Why bother chipping us when they can track you more accurately than GPS via your phone, use drones to spy on you and potentially kill you if they wanted, read all of your email, and your facepage, and even see your browsing history that you thought you deleted. Leaving a chip in you would be a waste of time and money.

    If the government wants to know how long I sit on the crapper then more power to them.

    Loose your phone, stay indoors, use snail-mail, don't use facebook, stop browsing Japanese fat midget "teacup" porn.

    They put a chip in your head, well, not much you can do about that. Reasons why you would want to probably wouldn't even make sense to you once they figure out how to use it to "correct" those poor judgements of yours, but that's a long, long ways off yet. (We hope.) ;)

    Governments have a long history of rounding up their citizens and putting them in gulags, for slave labor or just to make people disappear (hey, why not both?). America is making many tell-tale signs of repeating this. I suppose chips are far more efficient than, say, tattoos...

    Edit: I should point out that our rulers don't care about this piece of paper or that. What are you going to do, wave a document in front of an army?

    Not quite, but you never know. There are a whole slew of countries that used labor camps. People just fixate on the famous ones. There are other potential abuses with tracking devices. For instance, I hear it's a hassle just trying to leave the US, or take large sums of money out with you. Then there's the prison industrial complex.

    Personally, I think it's more realistic to happen after a post WW3 dystopia. Prior to that, there just wouldn't be any support or tolerance for something like that. They can't get away with everything.

    I totally roll around on the floor laughing when I see friends on Facebook screaming about the surveillance state after they have spent the last 5 years documenting every single, mundane aspect of their life for all the world (and their "500 friends") to see. The government doesn't need to spy on them, just friend them. I haven't posted on mine in months and was very lazy before that, I just use it to people watch. :p

    If the government is Big Brother, and business is Little Brother, what is social networking? I've always called it Little Sister. "Little Sister is watching you... masturbate?" Now THAT is super creepy!!!

    ? I... what? *confused*

    No... I won't google it. I won't!!
