This one's been around for a while. Always starts some good discussions. I recently talked to a guy at steak and shake about electronic transactions and the eventuality that financial institutions want to go to a cashless system. Eventually this means people will have their entire life implanted in them in the form of an RFID or microchip. He said he wouldn't mind "them" knowing where he was at all times. Big brother is right around the corner...

Very funny, and food for thought as well.
From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.

It's just a matter of time... the information is already out there, and gov just needs to get their hands on it - or admit that they have it in their hands, rather. :|

So how is Canada these days? But then, will any country be safe? Not likely... especially since the 'Real ID' crap will be spun as anti-terrorism. So long as it's not followed by federally required implants...
30g long planted fw
1 blue gourami
6 rummy nose tetras
6 gold barbs
3 peppered cory cats
1 'maldito' cory cats=
1 yoyo loach
1 clown pleco
6 ghost shrimp

There are no coincidences.

They've already made the implants, just haven't been able to get them legislated luckily. As for myself, if hte government wants to give me a permanent implant, it's gonna have to be high speed lead.

It's not that I'm even worried about my privacy from the big brother thing. It's that it WOULD be abused. They can't be trusted with thier own credit cards and checking accounts. Why would anyone trust them with the information on theirs?
