Does anyone really need an internet though? I refuse to be shackled to something like this. First a license then a knock on the door? Screw that stuff. There is nothing that could compel me to buy into this, it is pure governemnt and pig control tactics. It would ruint he internet for me anyway. I use it for entertainment. I WOULD miss my netflix, but I am certain I would recover.

Just a thought, if I stole "your" internet ID card, login. . (whatever) then it could create more problems than solve.
Just imagine the abuses that would ensue.
I believe this to be the tip of the iceberg. Soon,all forms of ID will probably be tied together into some sort of biometric/RFID/scan card that would be used to access everything and can track,monitor and corral you electronically by remote.
New Jersey Hospital to Implant Microchips in Patients' Arms - July 2006
In a new test program, Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey plans to implant patients suffering from chronic diseases with a microchip... Horizon plans to announce on Monday that it is teaming up with Hackensack University Medical Center in a pilot program where 280 patients regularly treated at the hospital will be implanted with a chip containing a code....

VeriChip Markets Its Implantable RFID Tags and Services Direct to Consumers
The company has launched a three-month advertising campaign for its newly rebranded Health Link system, and hopes to convince 1,000 South Floridians to get injected with rice-grain-sized transponders linked to health records....
VeriChip is partnering with hearing care provider HearUSA to make the chips available. With the system, consumers can call an 800 number for additional information. HearUSA telemarketing personnel will answer questions about the system and direct interested parties to HEARx stores in their area. Customers can visit one of HearUSA's eight HEARx locations in Florida's Palm Springs, Martin and St. Lucie counties, and have a VeriChip-licensed nurse implant the transponder there in the store. Consumers need not be HearUSA or HEARx customers to have the chip implanted.... www.rfidjournal.com...
Thus far, about 900 hospitals on the East Coast have agreed to participate in the VeriChip system. These hospitals have received RFID interrogators that can be used to read a patient's embedded VeriChip RFID transponder to automatically access that person's medical records... www.rfidjournal.com...
VeriMed, a human-implantable VeriChip RFID chip about the size of a rice grain, is being studied by U.S. Navy and Air Force generals. The VeriMed chip will have an encrypted 16-digit identification number. www.technovelgy.com...

Kind of off topic, but considering that knowledge, why do you suppose IP adresses and data on computers are admissable in court? Anyone with a little knowledge in computers can change timestamps and such as well. Who is to say the computer techs investigating didn't put some incriminating evidence on your computer, and change the timestamp? I know if I ever had the urge to do something illegal online, I would be doing some wardriving, not using my own internet connection lmao.

Why do we always vote in dictators!
They try and trick us by saying we have an option to vote. That's the only difference in today's dictators and yesteryears dictators. We get to vote our dictators in. We have the privilege of choosing which dictator we want this day and age.
