Thisis how the little darlings work. When they want to pass a law/statute that's unpopular, first create a climate of fear over a period of months or years, then by the time the Bill gets heard people are crying out to be "protected" and believe wholeheartedly that the Goverment has their best interests at heart and what a good idea it is.
The same is happening in the UK and has been for many many years. At first I never believed it when I was younger but as I've grown up, I see the pattern emerging time after time. At the moment they are wanting to microchip children (like they do dogs!). They say its to keep kids safe. Hmmmm. So for the last few years we've had constant unending stories and headlines about child abductions etc. Now when this was first mooted people were up in arms, now if you speak to folk, well they're not so sure now and maybe it IS a good idea!
See how it works? Creates a door to do almost anything they want if they can gain public support, then in years to come when we're all tagged and bagged they can turn around and say "Well its what you wanted"
Its bad enough we have to complete their ridiculous census every 10yrs and give them every drop of information bar grandma's shoes size let alone be chipped and then of course there's the National DNA Data Base question too which of course is for our own good they wouldn't dream of accessing that information for any other purpose!edit on 9-11-2012 by phyllida because: (no reason given)

My last trip abroad was in 2001 before New York and it was a real pleasure. I won't go near an airport now.
