The following NYTimes story from March 15, 2006 reports that it has been proven that software viruses can be added to radio frequency identification (RFID) tags:

The IEEE scientists who conducted this experiment provide further information on a website:

Maybe the Bush Administration can now be prodded to withdraw their plan for embedding RFID chips in U.S. passports later this year.

I thought I'd bring this back to the front page, I see this post has not been updated in awhile. We had an article in the local paper today about this Verichip program being added to a local small hospital complex in our area.
Local online article:

and the link for the Verichip company from Florida:

They claim it can't be used for GPS location, but they do provide a "wander protection" option which they don't have much in the way of details listed.

This is a small hospital group that is starting to implement it, and the patient will be charged $9.95/month to keep their data updatable.

It's a little scary when it's the local hospital jumpin on the bandwagon.

One thing that mystifies me are people who believe the lies. For instance, the microchips can't be used for GPS tracking. It either can be, or they are telling the truth, and it can be tracked in other ways. Why is it surprising that a hospital starts doing this? It's AMA approved. The beast is the hospital and AMA. Do I trust the govt? Sure, if I'm in some hostage situation, to show their "benevolence" they'll deal with captors. But when it comes to my privacy, money, dealing with issues of illegal agreement verbiage by credit card companies, allowing me to be free, etc., the answer is unequivocally "no". When it comes to my health, NEVER. Look at what is allowed in foods..look at the sweeteners..those things are not foods and have no place in foods. And everyone thinks it's some desire for an entity to protect their financial interests. That's BS. What they want is not to gain, they want us to lose. They NEED us to be dependent. The chip implants will not just be dependence, it will be dominance. So, to continue, the fact is I don't trust them. Their words will occasionally be peppered with "facts" (no doubt for deception), but they will be lying in some way peripherally. So for me, when they say this is to help locate things, pets, packages, people, people's records, or to mark criminals, etc., I say "wrong". Their goals have never been to help. Let me ask you, if in a few years it is mandated that all people must get chipped, will you be willfully bringing your children to chip them? Will you be saying "fine, even though we didn't ask for it and we don't really need it, we'll pay 9.95 to have the chips placed in Billy and Susie's hand, forehead or buttocks (really wherever the gov't at that time deems necessary, because..what? you're going to protest? And it's already going "global" in Europe)?" Will you be heading for the hills? Will you fault people for disappearing? What about those who choose not to chip their families and are placed in prison and are subsequently chipped? Will that be justifiable? Will you feel that was done for your safety? Will you think, I have nothing to hide? Will you recognize the mark of the beast and carry it willfully because you are afraid..again? Do you realize now that you have been under the beast for as long as you've been alive? Perhaps that seems outrageous to you because it's "this administration" that is to blame. Well, let me tell you it's not, it's all administrations. After you work your whole life and start receiving Social Security, you still must pay taxes on your benefits (do you think that's appropriate?). Do you realize that if you're receiving your benefits and choose to spend X amount of time in another country and to work in that country and work more than ten hours a week, you may not receive your benefit...but if you are in the States you can work 90 hours a week and still receive the full benefit? Does that seem appropriate? Do you think that it was the Bush administration that instituted that? This was in place forty years ago. Do you think voting and using this "system" will change any of these things? How much do they lie? Go to the middle east. what do you think will happen to you there? I can tell you. You will be treated like an honored guest by the first stranger you's legendary middle eastern hospitality. In Iran I never paid for lodging because I was a foreigner. In Syria, same thing. Does it make sense? Not to the US citizen, but that's the way it is. Take a middle east visitor to the USA (land of the free, brotherhood and all that), that person could be sooner beaten than fed and given a nice lodging. Why? Because of propaganda perpetuated by the press and govt. Middle Eastern hospitality is legendary. And in Israel? Another "democracy", you know part of that population has no rights because of their ethnicity. Sure, you say they're terrorists..go there and see, they aren't. They are being terrorized as are we. Our govts are poison.

those who sell their freedom for protection deserve neither! the empire will fall, NO TO CHIPS, they are going to use them to manipulate people, forget about being traced, they are going to control u!

It shouldn't matter much where the implant is placed. Wherever a detector is, it would scan your presence if you came within a reasonable proximity. If a car can be traced by satellite, I'm sure a person would be identified just by being within a few feet.

Isn't the idea behind these new id implants to aid security forces, finding and/or tracing individuals? What good would they be if the suspect had to be in contact, like a bar code reader in a grocery store?

When it comes to personal banking or purchasing, I'd be willing to bet biometrics will be the future. Chip implants will work in the case of parolees, much like ankle bracelets. They could most likely be injected directly into muscle tissue and activated by electrical currents which are natural in the human body.

Those implants for pets are a way for the animal shelters to identify the owners through a data bank after downloading the information from an inserted chip. I doubt they would be better than dna and biometrics for humans.

Exactly. Morocco is already issuing out Biometric ID cards that perform the same task as sub-dermal microchips. And they kinda pretty much work similar to the pass-cards in the game "Metal Gear Solid".

Have you ever been to a store where the UPC codes can be read without direct laser (spectravision) optical scanning? If they have the technology to read what is in your cart then you wouldnt have to bend over the scanner....but you will be "bending over" metaphorically when you get it!

I agree.

Bending over to be scanned is the quite the appropriate position.

Could you do us all a favor and edit your post?
Stick on some paragraph breaks please.
I'd like to read your post but it's all so shmooled together my eyes are bleeding.
I’m sure a lot of others would find it much more comfortable a read also and you’ll get your word out and more responses too!
Thanks tons!

Lets break that up into some paragraphs.
Makes a much easier read, especially if you want people to take it all in.

I got through the first few sentences and my question to you is:
Do you know for a fact that these chips can't be used to track?!

I am assuming that when you use your chip, there is an electrical time
stamp recorded on a computer. Yes?! No?!

Also, If you go to one area of the hospital and use your chip for access,
and then go to another department and gain access again by using your
chip, then isn't it safe to assume that your electronic footprint has been left.

The chip is indeed a form of tracking. The hospital computer knows where
you are and where you have been and there is no reason why the government could not access this computer if they really needed to.

Technology advances so rapidly. Imagine where this chip technology is
headed. Tracking is certainly not out of the spectrum or possibilities to

Baby steps, baby steps.

Distrustful of the chip implants as I am, I must confess; I'm not remotely surprised that people are stupid enough to believe its a good idea. Breaking away from morals and practical uses, the chip represents only one thing, really. Users of the chip trade responsibility for security, which, if you actually understand the gravity of such a thing, is tragic.

Yes, it begins with giving away one's responsibility for locks and keys, but I'm not the only one who can see clearly how quickly this giveaway will grow. Humans are at best a lazy species; if you don't believe me, ask yourself why nearly every technological advancement has been made for the sake of simplifying life. One implimented, uses for the chip will quickly grow; its a matter of marketing really. IPODs use the same damnable ploy; why buy IPOD A when IPOD B has two more programs? And you should take a look at IPOD C! Different companies will start marketing different chips, having sales, and before a decade has passed finding people with the chip will be as easy as finding people who've been to the dentist.

People are, in fact, stupid enough to do these things if they believe it will make them happier. The worst atrocities in the history of mankind have been committed, at base, for the pursuit of happiness. This chip will, by course of our government's drive for security and by its people's desire for convenience, ultimately cause one of two things. Either Americans are going to go out with a whimper, giving up their basic rights without so much as a sign of realization, or there will be war. And though I know I'm adding a page to my file with the FBI (which everyone who has ever looked at a porn site posesses, for the record), I'm hoping for war. I'd rather die than lose what feeble and illusory freedoms I have.

ps. Someone posted earlier that the chip could not be tracked due to its lack of signal strength. What this person failed to mention is that every signal from each chips is unique, and if one has both a very strong reciever and knows the proper frequency... Well, you do the math. And of course, the government would know the frequencies...and they currently have the recievers; don't try to argue that one, please, unless you deny the existence of SETI.

pps. If you don't believe the porn thing, check for yourself. They do it based on the psychological evidence that serial killers are addicted to pornography, and have one vast database of names and files to aid in the identification and capture of said killers. While you're watching porn, Big Brother is watching you. Creepy, eh?

The AMA approved it because the FDA classified it as an 'approved medical device' which means only doctors can 'install' it - making it a potential gold mine.

It about money for the association.

The truth is this constitutes a complete circumvention of the notion that human rights are god-given.

Landru help us! We are not of the body!
