The Era of the Low-jack Is At Hand

VeriChip chairman Scott Silverman, possibly emboldened by Bu$hCo's call to know "who is in our country and why they are here," has floated the idea of "chipping" foreign workers so that they can be tracked. Apparently VeriChip has been in discussions with officials in Washington about the idea of using RFIDs for employee identification and at border crossings.


And the conventional wisdom suggests that the public is nervous about the use and abuse of RFID technology. Gee, I wonder why?

Wow, that would be great!

Maybe, employers could be given scanners and they could scan in all their employees for the deadly chip.

What fun! What a great morning morale builder!
Well, at least this is a step in the right direction. But it ain't just them furriners that we need to monitor. There are plenty of America-hating treehuggers among the citizenry, and it's time we start monitoring their every move.
Hey why not everyone, if your not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.../sarcasm
Fred's right...universal sufferage...everyone gets the chip! Well except our leaders of course. No need to chip these sterling examples of ethical purity, right?
