Thumbprint needed to sell your property in Illinois

" I feel I have this right welcome to America. We can't fingerprint anybody who's coming in this country because that would be offensive. But if he owned property in Chicago and you want to sell these tickets is going to get fingerprinted cool -- to get fingerprinted. You do. We can't take DNA samples from killers rapists but you can have your fingerprint taken if you want to sell your house. What is happening. To this country. It's happening in Chicago who's from Chicago. Remove president wrote anyway. Gerald -- is a homeowner who is just as outraged design am. He lives in Cook County Illinois where this -- is about to go into effect okay Gerald. Why are you would you have to give your fingerprint if you want to sell your house in Chicago."

I was just listening to infowars radio and a caller called in to say

"Now you need to give up your thumbprint to sell your property in Cook County"
I did a google and came up with this interview on FOX. Times are changing. I'm in Canada but I am closely watching what is happening across our border. 4th reich anyone? Just passing it along.

Nice find, thanks for the alert. I live in Chicago and i sure haven't heard anything about this until now. I'm sure going to call my representives and find out if this is true or not. If it's true the guy's right they slid it in right under our noses, while we were busy with the upcoming elections, just like these crooked politicians here in Illinois to use election time to do their dirty deeds.

It sure doesn't make any sense at all, why do they need your fingerprints in order for you to sell your house? It's just another way for them to slowly take more of our rights away from us. They do it so slowly that most people don't even realize how much we have already lost.

It's not bad enough that they're already taxing us to high heaven, here in cook county, but now they want to treat us like criminals because we want to sell our property !

There is absolutely no reason in the world for a law like that, and they sure as hell won't be getting my fingerprints !

it's unbelievable. I can't even believe how creepy it's getting. Just wondering when things this bad start trickling over the border. It most likely has, but under different circumstances. Good luck with your situations.

I have a thing here, that generates slides.
Made out of adhesive plastic wrap.
That makes your thumb print different.
You can design it to print someone elses.
You can have someone elses thumb scan.
Thumb print scanners have long now been found to be useless.
Fingerprinting also.
That's why they use DNA for serious arguments.
Retina scans don't lie as much.
Every retina is unique.
But the problems with this is, peoples individual retina's change.
So they might not be able to get into work one day.
And in the long term, if you can scan a retina.
Then you can also get a copy of someones scan.
And duplicate it with an overlay.
There is nothing around today, other than DNA, that cant be forged.
So them making people do this, is trivial.

I suppose one way of getting out of this would be to give them your thumbprint and then move to an area where they do not want your thumbprint. Once there make a cut on your thumb that will leave a scar therefore rendering the thumbprint the old area has stored useless.

It is my belief that this would work. Any other suggestions

I couldn't watch the video, but I tried to read the transcript. Most of it was gibberish and made no sense. Because it was so littered with random gibberish I couldn't figure out if this is going into effect in only Cook County or if it covers the whole state of Illinois. I just bought my house 2 years ago, so I'm not planning to sell anytime soon, but it still seems like a really hinky way to wiggle around current privacy measures and for that reason it interests me.

Because I wanted to know more, and I couldn't watch the video (and the transcript on the video page was unintelligible) I looked for more and found a bit.
Glenn Beck interview transcript. Google search phrase that I used to find more info: "thumbprint to sell property, IL"
Hopefully the links work! (Well, one did. Edited other one and just put in the search phrase I used.)

It appears that it was signed by Blago in October and is to go into effect on June 1st. Also, as far as I can tell, it seems to only affect the people of Cook county, but I'm not positive on that. I will certainly be interested in seeing where this goes and how it morphs and changes to be used in other laws in the future.

Take care,

Well, as I have said in the past and my personal opinion is that the state of Illinois is an experimental miniature location of the fascists, socialists, whatever you want to call them, to see how far they can get away with using a lot of the increased reliance on government, increase of government size and increased government control.
I live in eastern Iowa and I have been watching and listening to the crap they've been dealing with in Illinois. They drove out much of the firearms manufacturing jobs like Les Baer, parts of Springfield Armory, Rock River Arms, etc. Whatever they got/get away with in Illinois they'll likely try in the Federal level too.
