It's been a pleasant review on this topic, and I see there are some thoughts that are pro or con which is nice.
As for the Spin, it is and has been going on for sometime.
RFID Seminar: Tagging the Public Sector
(Hit this PDF File on the Lower left of the side of the Page under Related Presentations).
Presented by Paul Pocialik at an internal seminar at the DIR (Department of Information Resources) in Austin, Texas, on 5th October 2005.
Page 64 of this PDF starts the Corperate Spin from Noblestar, at the noted Conference.
The first Guise is FIRST / EMERGENCY RESPONSE, and it plants the first seeds of acceptance. Aspects drawn in here regard Medical, Biological Threats,
Victim Triage, and Evacuation
Page 68 is quite nice, with a quick outline of the abilities and uses.
Between page 68 and page 76, comes the Animal aspect, and then details expand on the ID Card aspect, such as Bush is pushing N.A. to adopt now.
What else can we find direct from the mouths of these corperations
And here in the Digital Angels Corp News Section, do we find a slip of the tongue, so to speak?
You decide. The Second Paragraph is telling.
"The Verichip with temperature sensing capabilities will allow a transponder to provide a unique identification code as well as to provide the
temperature of the individual
. Various potential customers have approached Digital Angel and Verichip about incorporating the temperature
sensing capability into the Verichip."
And as for Verichip, We are all, OR YOUR SHOULD BE ALL, aware of who just recently joined the Board of Directors. None other than Tommy Thompson, and
what does he do?
"Former secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson says he will have the rice-sized VeriChip RFID tag implanted
under his skin.
This announcement comes two weeks after Thompson joined the board of directors of VeriChip, a company based in Delray Beach, Fla., that manufactures
RFID tags-including the implantable tag-for tracking people."
Also note this last paragraph
"VeriChip also sells non-implantable RFID-based identification systems. The company says its Hugs RFID infant protection system recently prevented
the abduction of a baby at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, N.C.
The Hugs system uses RFID-enabled ankle or wrist bracelets and sensors
installed throughout hospital maternity units to alert staff when infants are removed from designated areas. This and similar VeriChip security
systems are used in approximately 900 U.S. hospitals, according to VeriChip."
You can't make Sales to the unsuspecting, without claims like this. Everyone should be knocking their doors down, just to be safe like this.
Here's the alert of that Infant being saved from abduction.
The last paragraph is a little concering for me, since no one would ever know about this other than the IMPLANTER of a Chip. A screaming Baby, (unless
your Tom Cruise's baby, who is coming out silently,) can have the Chip inserted without drawing attention, since they are all ready yelling as loud
as possible. But it is being utilized today, and the sell is on.
And as for other applications, they are here.
Here are workers being Chipped, and I liked this Spin in the last paragraph
"When compared to the typical access control tools like proximity and smart cards, Procter said, "The chip is under the skin, you can't lose it.
It can't be forgotten at home, and very likely it can not be taken away from you without someone being extremely motivated."
Just think, you could go to a bank Machine, and swipe your hand and never need to protect your P.I.N. again. Things can get much better than this.
It's the perfect world isn't it. Step right up people, and form a line to the left. The Con Job is on, and as noted, no one is being pressured.
Yeah right. GWB, Harper and Amigo Fox will have this inplace, at some level in the not too distant future of American Travel. No RFID, you can not
cross that border. That includes Foreigners coming to our shores. The EU and U.K. are currently readying their populations, thru the guise of
security, for RFID Cards and Passports.
There a New World Order coming, and once it's inplace, it will be explained to the Sheep like this.
"Those who wish the Chip, please line up on the Left. Those who do not, follow these guards to your confinement area, since it is clear you are not
trust worthy and pose a risk to everyone else who is chipped. Your liklely a Drug Dealer, Theif, a Wanted Fellon, or a Terrorist, with nothing more
than an intent to cause problems. Now step along"
And after our authorities have expressed this, how large do you believe the line on the left will be, whether you want it or not.
Just something to ponder.
