There was a commercial for some genology DNA kit. The woman in the commercial was dark-ish skinned, had almond shaped eyes and freckles.

She said, "I found out I was African, Irish and Chinese!"

I sighed, and said at the TV: "I could have told you that for free by looking at you."

SMH.

Can we breed violent criminal behaviors out of the population by targeting those with the genetic profile and treating or eliminating it altogether?


Can we breed a violent military to concur the world?



You mean conquer? Probably.

She asked why they dont just put a chip in everybodys hand and that has your id and is how you spend your money at any place. I laughed and felt horror when she said this.

I wouldn't mind it, because I'm not up to any monkey business like taking illegal drugs or cheating on my spouse or falsifying my taxes. How cool would it be to walk into a grocery store with no I.D. or money, fill up your cart, bag it and just stroll out to your car while the sensor in the door scans you and everything in the cart and bills you on your card?

Or when I get a little older if I lose some of my faculties and I'm not sure exactly how to get home. Just do a quick scan and friends, relatives, police, all know exactly where I am and where to come get me.

If you weren't involved in petty (I assume) crime, you wouldn't be so worried.

I like the one where the guy turns his lederhosen in for a kilt because he found out he is mostly Scottish rather than German. Sounds so cute, doesn't it?

Maybe by then, "they" will have gotten rid of all the criminal tendencies and nobody would have to worry about monkey business.

Yeah, and who knows what they do with the DNA. I mean they CLAIM it's not used for nefarious purposes...but when has that stopped anyone from abusing something?

Exactly. What would keep a "worker bee" in the lab from using a bit of somebody's DNA to frame someone of a crime?

What you need to worry about is when your DNA testing comes back and they identified the gene that causes Alzheimer's in you. You are now aware of that and must disclose it. My exwife wanted to be tested by her doctor and he warned her not to find out because her billionaire insurance company would drop her like a rock for preexisting condition. Oh wait, that evil Obama and Obamacare put a stop to that. Score: little guy 1. Insurance Company 0. But anyway until Obamacare, that was a serious concern.

And guess what? That could have been done with a simple little law. Instead we got a gazillion bazillion pages of crap known as the ACA/Obamacare.

Every time you have blood taken at the doctor's office you are losing control of your DNA.

What's the big deal? BB is already in your pants.

People want to know where they came from. It's their business, not yours.

LOL

I have an interest in cultural anthropology.

So I actually find that very interesting.

Thanks for posting this.
In January while visiting a local Seattle Pain Clinic, I was informed that they were performing MANDATORY DNA SCREENING of ALL CLIENTS. I was very surprised by this and asked WHY? Their response was that the sole purpose of this screening was to determine whether or not there were "genetic" reasons for either changing or stopping medications based on the results of the test. I'm OK with this aspect, but was not thrilled that there was not an option to "opt-out", and asked whether or not my DNA could be used for other purposes. The doctor told me that a number of patients voiced similar concerns and assured me that there would be no knock on my door from federal agents who had discovered that my DNA had linked me to hamster abuse or other sinister crimes.

Still, once that DNA info is placed in a database, WHO KNOWS what MIGHT happen to it? What about data-breaches (hacking/theft)? Could it be sold to companies or agencies for whatever nefarious purposes they might conjure? Despite my doctor's assurances, I still felt uncomfortable with the entire idea of giving my most private information to a company I had never heard of. Pain clinics kind of have their patients by the sack, though, because most are dependent on the medications they receive. So, either comply or suffer.


It should be obvious what's going on here. You're on a DEA list as a user of pain medication, i.e., a potential abuser.

I KNOW it will get added to the NSA database and they even make you pay for the service. What a freaking scam.


I just love ATS. Yet another person who KNOWS, thus betraying he knows absolutely nothing. The freaking scam is that he thinks he knows anything at all. That's what is laughable.

Here is what is LIKELY to happen. It may not because I do NOT "know" for sure at all. Your wallet is going to disappear. There's no reason to carry around the various cards, licenses, certifications, and cash like you do now. The wallet is bulky and subject to loss and theft. Instead, all this stuff is going to gravitate to a single device. Already Smart Phones can do a lot of it, but although a consolidated device, it's subject to the same loss and theft issues as a wallet. So this will gravitate to a watch, strapped to your wrist, and eventually to a chip--implanted, probably in your hand. At that point a mere wave of your hand--if that--will be all that needs be done to "check out" or "check in" anywhere.

There are many people here who are freaking out and becoming overly emotional about this trend. They don't want it to happen. But it will anyway, whether you like it or not. It may be that YOU can and will avoid it, even though by doing so you will become increasingly isolated and unable to easily participate in normal daily activities, but your kids won't. Your neighbors won't. And by the time your grand kids come along it will be an accepted part of modern life. A few years later you will be dead.

Problem solved.

Many years ago,while still doing UFO research.I read an article about
some groups of people were more likely to be abducted than other groups.
I am pretty sure the ethnic groups were irish and native americans.

I have more fear of getting stung by a bee. (It's probably a robot bee stealing my blood for some mad scientist.)

In parts of other countries they're already using implants.

I know there are some nightclubs who are using them.

It would make more sense to tattoo everyone with ink visible under ultraviolet. I don't know what the identifying mark would be - SSN, some other national ID number.

I don't want a damn implant. The body naturally resists such things.

Good point. Have you had a blood test for cholesterol or just a regular medical check-up? There goes your DNA!

That would be a single number system tied to a database where the actual information would be kept whereas an implant would carry many different data elements from your driver's license to your credit cards--even your concealed carry permit--locally, an analog of your wallet today. Implant rejection is a minor issue. I doubt if you, personally, will have to deal with one, but it's coming anyway. :-)
