Then you MUST have it, or your med insurance wont cover you.
Then on every street corner there'll be a lottle box that reads the chip evey time you walk past.

And to anyone who thinks this is harmless, what are you doing on a conspiracy site? Chipping means eventually tracking your every move. It opens the door for a banking chip, where they can cut off your funds if you don't obey the law. Heck, maybe they can put a "kill switch" in there-you'd never know until it blew your arm off or poisoned you.

Exactly, I am not a criminal and should not be treated as one by being constantly surveilanced. I brought that idea up to my son about the possibility to send electical pulses through your body no one deserves that kind of control over your body.
I look forward to reconnecting with everyone who is attending the health law professors conference in Chicago. My presentation will be applying some of the ideas of Scott Peppet (on self-quantification and unraveling) to personal health records. I found these ideas from Peppet’s post on biometric identification particularly interesting:
The biometric technologies firm Hoyos (previously Global Rainmakers Inc.) recently announced plans to test massive deployment of iris scanners in Leon, Mexico, a city of over a million people. . . . [T]he company’s roll-out strategy is explicitly premised on the unraveling of privacy created by the negative inferences & stigma that will attach to those who choose not to participate. Criminals will automatically be scanned and entered into the database upon conviction.
