VeriChip, the company that makes radio frequency identification--RFID--tags for humans, has moved one step closer to getting its technology into hospitals.
The Federal Drug Administration issued a ruling Tuesday that essentially begins a final review process that will determine whether hospitals can use RFID systems from the Palm Beach, Fla.-based company to identify patients and/or permit relevant hospital staff to access medical records, said Angela Fulcher, vice president of marketing and sales at VeriChip.
VeriChip sells 11-millimeter RFID tags that get implanted in the fatty tissue below the right tricep. When near one of Verichip's scanners, the chip wakes up and radios an ID number to the scanner. If the number matches an ID number in a database, a person with the chip under his or her skin can enter a secured room or complete a financial transaction.
"It is used instead of other biometric applications," such as fingerprints, Fulcher said.

About MicroCHIPS' Technologies
MicroCHIPS' technologies are being applied to the creation of intelligent in-body devices that can sense vital biochemical changes, deliver potent drug therapies, and communicate using wireless technologies. First developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the technologies use microreservoir arrays to store and protect chemical sensors or potent drugs within the body for extended periods of time. The reservoir arrays are compatible with preprogrammed microprocessors, wireless communications, and sensor feedback loops to provide precise, dynamic control of sensor activation and drug release.

The people that live in the empire are lazy and the PTB know this. They'll use the MSM to push fear of identity theft, espionage, etc. and then the RFID will be rebranded as some modern day wonder solution that everyone will get on-board with. "Hope. Change. Smartchip. Blah."

Nobody asked Obama what he wanted to change and transform America into.
When I heard Obama say the Constitution was fundamentally flawed because it restrains government, there wasn't any way I could vote for him. This is something a dictator would say.
Part of the idea of the Constitution is to restrain government so no man or government can force their conscious or ideology onto the American people. The Founders wanted individuals to live by the dictates of their own conscious not the dictates of Obama or anyone else.

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Revelation 14:9-12

Obama is truly working overtime for the title of "Worst President Ever'.

A euphemism is a substitution with an agreeable or less offensive expression in place of one that may offend or suggest something unpleasant to the receiver, or to make it less troublesome for the speaker, as in the case of doublespeak. The deployment of euphemisms is a central aspect within the public application of political correctness. en.wikipedia.org...

Problem is, hes pushing the wrong peoples buttons.
He needs to stop trying to push the American people around, it is getting really annoying. He knows the damage that this will cause,yet does it anyway;why would he do that if he didnt have an agenda?

First thing, why is Obama named in the headline of this thread?
The draft national strategy for building a new “identity ecosystem” that the Obama administration released June 25 would accomplish that, according to its developers. The ecosystem would base authentication on trusted digital identities instead.

The simple fact is that this technology and the people pushing for it were around long before Obama was even running for president. I remember microsoft wanted (and still want) identity built into a computers hardware so you can't get around it.

I can understand Microsoft wanting to be able to know who is 'stealing' their software, but this new draft policy is about embedding our names into virtually everything that it possibly can be.
