This whole idea of "tagging"....whether or not it begins with kids in a school or eventually ends up with the general public being tagged and monitored like some kind of lab rat...this is appaling.

If the parents had done their jobs in the first place, and if the school system had done it's job by being a place of learning..and not indoctrination...there would be no need for tagging....all this is going to do is raise the animosity level of the kids towards what they will see as extremely unjust and unfair.

Each of us has a responsibility to ourselves and to each other...tagging would give that responsibility to someone else and open the way for a complete socialogical shift to the NWO.

as i see it, anyone who finds the use of tags and chips to be of help in living in todays world are living in such fear that they can no longer use the common sense and intuition that God has given them.

Well, at least I am sick of the civically ignorant sheep that continue to regurgitate the official explanations "it's for terrorists" "crime is too high" "we don't need privacy" They might as well add "We are not safe, we must give up every right to make it easy for the government to protect us" actually it does not need to be said. It's already been implied.

None of them will or has the intellectual ability to see the bigger picture - "thinking is for losers" They are too self-absorbed in their own bubble- verses. You don't think I know? I know a family of lawyers and barristers who are as apathetic about state affairs as the common man.

A recent pscychological study was shown here in UK on the irrational fears of the public on the state of crime. They were asked for each major offence(murder, rape, robbery etc) to estimate how many are reported per year. The results showed that the average man/woman overestimated it by a factor of hundreds to even thousands.

All of this is propoganda and nothing else. They will tell you anything to make you accept this unconstitutional law and will create an imagined enemy or threat to scare you into accepting it. Deny propaganda and deny state terrorism.

Whether this is right or wrong there is no way parents are gonna pay the amount of money this would take.

I think this is wrong. So what if the kids skip school a couple of times. You can learn alot from skipping a day of school, plus its not like schools are so safe anyway.

I saw two 9th. graders last week marked down from $1.67 to $1.14 and that included their lunch money!

This is one of the issues that liberals/socialists, libertarians, and a lot of conservatives (at least the ones I know) agree upon. Seriously, sice when would you give up ANY of your freedom for lesser crime and people watching you your whole life?

This is nothing new. In Britain, there have been electronic tags used to track early-release prisoners for some time now. Perhaps some of our readers from the UK can tell us how this has adversely affected their lives. Are you being watched as you go pee?

From reading the article, it seems like they are using simple passive RFID tags, similar to the tag on an item you buy at Wal-Mart. They have a range of about 20 ft., thus their limited usage in tracking when a student gets on or off a school bus. Which brings up a bit of exaggeration in the article:

Police can monitor children from the time they leave home to their arrival on campus.

Not true. They can't monitor children from the time they leave home, only from the time they get on the bus. And they can't really monitor anything. A kid could leave his badge on his seat, hop off the bus, commit mischief, hop back on the bus, and everything is hunky-dory as far as the "monitoring system" is concerned.

Ever been in a secure building, like the, for example? You wear a badge that really tracks you, and sets off claxons and flashing lights when you enter an area you're not suppose to be in.

it would be different if parents had a say but to make this manditory is wrong.

I am shure there are a few parents out there that are to lazy to raise there kids and prefer other people do it while they are out shopping and looking at porn all day on the computer and doing anything else besides paying attention to their kids however I would hope this isnt how the majority of the parents are and actually wouldnt stand for this.

how are kids going to learn to be responsible if no one is takeing resposibillity for them and depending on chips?

There has been talk of chipping people at birth. But I don't see that happening at least for another 10 or so years.

Any sort of 'tracking' is an INVASION OF PRIVACY in my opinion. I'm aware that I'm already being watched (via internet), what more do they want? I try to use anon. hubs, but get lazy.

Apx. a year ago, here in Chicago, there was a movement afoot (by the gov) to implant chips into pets to keep track of license fees and cut down on strays. There was a public outcry over this---over the $75 cost to pet owners. I was absolutely dumbfounded that NO ONE spoke out over the slippery slope aspect of this--eg. soon humans TOO could be chip implanted. And what about how the dog would feel? Physically......wouldn't it hurt? Wouldn't scratching cause infection? What about toxic shock? But people only complained over cost.
(The proposal was eventually shot down). Sheep can't think inside the dog nor outside.
One more thing: Also here in Chi "Bar Code" tattoos are very popular amongst the punk rock and goth set.

Here's an article I found on RFID:

First of all, tagging students would not keep them safe from kidnapping. The first thing a kidnapper would do is take the tag off of the kid.
This tagging is just a way of training the next generation to accept a new level of control and loss of privacy.

Putting the chip inside us would be no better. Can you imagine what kidnappers would do if every kid had an implant in their arm, leg, foot, forehead, etc. A sharp knife and 30 seconds and the kid is no longer traceable.

Meanwhile WAKE UP! Loss of privacy means that we are just being further controlled. Can't you pro chippers see that it will only make innocent people suffer. We live in a time when body modification is socially acceptable. If anyone puts a chip in me I'll get it out, one way or the other. I've withstood piercings, tattoos, etc - I would have no problem taking out their chip. I think the average depraved maniac could remove his/hers as well.
The only way I couldn't do it is if they planted it inside a major organ. Well, they would have to catch me first to do that. I am not going in for a major surgery without a fight.

I took my child out of public school for much less than tagging him. I would not tolerate teaching him that his every move should be monitored by the state.

The chips are not expensive at all, less then 50 cents right no, and that price should be under 2 cents by next year, get used to these chips, you will hear alot about them soon.

You understand, tagging children as if they are felons indicates the U.S. people are so afraid of the U.S.'s children, we would rather treat them like criminals than educate them? That schools are fast becoming places of incarceration, not places of learning, and while U.S. education levels sink lower and lower on the international scale, the only thing the current U.S. administration is implementing, rather than paying lip service to, is psych tests, drug tests, enforced medication, locks, cameras, metal detectors, and finally -- implants for monitoring location and behavior 24/7.

Personal data chips do not turn off when you go home. Personal data chips are monitored by satallite.

It is especially wrong to use parents' love for their children in an effort to "chip" America's youth. "Don't you love your child? Don't you care for your child's well being? Don't you want us to find your child if your child is molested or kidnapped?"

Yes. Go chip the sex offenders. They are convicted criminals. The children of this country are not.
