ThisIsTooBoring, I'm going to school to become a mechanic, and there is talk of a new On Board Diagnostic system called the OBD-3. With this system, all of the vehicles data will be recieved via satellite through sensors, or readers, placed on the highways, streets, and random sites. This technology is capable of sending the DMV any inspection issues, i.e. headlights misaligned, blown taillights, emissions issues, engine knock, (predetonation), etc. Which in turn has the DMV send you a ticket.
The car itself can become a reader for RFID tags which could then be programmed to send RFID data via the sensors placed on the roadways. So it's not all that far off. Not to mention the fact that the body could very well provide the energy needed to power the tag. All it needs is an electrical input right? And what is movement of the body but electrical signals sent from the brain.

and its also funny that these things can cause cancer, i don't think they have still solved that problem...and they seem to be already putting them out on the market.
PEOPLE if you do see those kinds of commercials in the future, do not get dragged into them at all, the chips will have all your information on them over time, giving the bankers that control these companies with your info everything, giving them control of all your money. To top it all of they will know were you are at all times... in the end it will be mandatory from when you are born.
I have watched the news on this for along time, when it started with animals... I knew it would not be long before humans would have the option to have a RFID chip inserted. Soon the option will become a requirement. Run Forest Run!
Finally, common people without a real "need" to be chipped will get chipped because there will be tax breaks and discounts at walmart because of it. Sort of like a national preferred member discount card. The prices are jacked up 200% everywhere, and you can get it back down to normal price with the "verichip discount." Same for taxes on gas, cigs, food, perhaps even income tax and social security. Insurance will be less for those with chips, and etc. etc.
It will be hyped over and deemed cool to the younger generation of Hollywood entertainment and MTV worshipers. Possibly new babies will be required one?
It becomes really scarye when the chip replaces your ATM and bank cards and stores start saying they will be Verichip Preferred sellers, meaning you cant buy from them or whatever without a chip.
Considering the drive toward mandatory and compulsory use of this technology makes me contemplate home grown EMP weaponry and militias arising committed to frying the techno-infrastructure. Fighting the chip will be seen by many as worth dying for -- at the very level of saving humanity.

Of course not! When i market my chips its not going to be so superficial. It will be a direct talk with the people saying what information they have, what they will be used for and what you gain by having it.
Those who refuse gain none of the benefits.

I believe you are missing the problem with people getting chipped. In a perfect world you would be right. If it only allowed for the things they say they will be for, well then your arguement might be valid.p.
But look how information is used today. They say you sign up to internet company to read things on web and converse with friends.
In reality you are tracked so if you a 'terrorist' you can be singled out and targeted.
In reality it is not terrorist, it is anyone that threatens the power of those who have access to information, which is why Hover had many peacefull law abiding people on his list, and why the NSA has Quakers on theirs.
The whole point is this, information in itself is not bad, but when that information is held by a few, and used by those few to premote their own agenda, which is not the agenda that helps all people, then suddenly info collecting becomes hurtfull to all but that 1%
Right now if you publish and article on 9/11 you get fired, this is not universal but there are many examples. Imagine if you walked in a protest, a police held a scanner and got everyones RFID, sent off emails to their bosses, their credit agencies, and home owners group. They are marked as statistically possibly unstable due to ability to speak out against norm and are no longer valid employee, credit risk, or neighbor.
Imagine if you were flagged as a potential constitutionalist, currently police are trained to look at people who claim constitutional rights as possible terrorist.
Or maybe you are willing to do bad things for people in power, you get your red flag on your RFID reduced, if you stand up and say no, they bump you up
They don't want to chip us to help us, they want a better tracking system to maintain their unlawfull, unjust grip on power.
And besides, it is also the mark of the beast...
