I believe most of us are not happy with the blanket of supremacy that we give to our governing authorities. Please tell your government representatives to pass a law against the production and distribution of micro-tags, before we all feel like birds in a big cage. A big problem here is that change seems impossibly difficult to reverse.
Fact: Some animal hospitals in the United States have been injecting identification chips into domestic animals for a few years already as a high-tech "dog-tag". We've seen these devices used in the movies to tag humans. How long do you think it will be before all of us become host to a tag?
Next, think about how our basic rights are being slowly filed away by devious lawmakers approving laws in micro-phases, often as a thorn on the tail of an important bill... each as "baby-steps" towards a condition that we would instantly reject if the whole picture were presented intact.
The weird thing about our culture and the "group-mindset" of America, is that anyone who stands up to these changes is tagged as a supremist, an anarchist, or guilty and hiding something...
If we were to study the history of our country; the conditions, the mindsets, the values, and the associated laws, at different stages in our past, we can see that small groups of people and sometimes individuals have made sweeping changes to our very culture.
If you are shaking your head right now, can you remember when we stopped pledging allegence to our flag in school, because of a small group? -- Now we don't even solute during a parade on the 4th of July! We stopped prayer in school, because someone was offended? -- Now average people aren't even praying while at home and alone! Recently, I have witnessed the results of new law changes that have destroyed communities and wildlife around my home in the Midwest, so I can say that this value-eroding process hasn't changed.
Until we create a law that limits bills in congress to one topic per bill, we are doomed to the micro-erosion of our rights over a long-term. This suggestion for separating segmented bills is a good place to start in preventing future problems. Then, tell your representative to support a law that also makes the tagging of humans and associated property illegal, BEFORE it becomes another massive historic blunder for people complain about.
One more thing; Life in the city numbs the mind against some basic realities. Living in a small town has reminded me of some of these realities. This is one: Lawmakers are not always informed and educated before they pass a law... Consider this: If a law doesn't directly effect you, do you care what the law does?... Take the controversies about Mille Lacs Lake for example -- Look it up here on the Internet! It's food for thought.
The "mark of the beast" gets one step closer. Combine this with "Sky Angel" and ultimate control will exist. Anyone who thinks our government "would never do this sort of thing" needs to be reminded that they already regulate how much water we can flush in our toilets!

Hitachi's Mew tracking chip
The next things to be done:
1. Extend the range of the sensors to pick this up from 30cm/3m/30m/300m.
2. Expand the memory to store more data.
3. Drop one in each vial of vaccinations given to hospitals for newborns.
Viola! Criminal hiding? - not anymore. Law-abiding citizen hiding? - not anymore. Who needs motion sensors when they can see exactly who is where and when?? Hate to sound paranoid, but...
"Welcome... to the real world..."
Those metal stripes in bills already tell them how much money you got on you. This it taking it even farther. Undetectable tracking devices. The government is probably 10 or more years ahead of industry so just imagine what they got. The stealth bomber was being developed during or before Vietnam war. And we first heard about it when??? This is the early model for the public.
BIGO has it exactly right. We are one step away from the mark of the beast which is propesied in the Revelation of St. John. Tie this technology with Digital Angel and electronic transactions and you have the mark. First everyone will get Digital Angel for their children due to the fear child abduction, then Child Protective Services will say it's neglect if you don't get it. Once enough of the population has it, the government will mandate it as part of its war on drugs or some other created crisis. The transaction part will be brought in as optional at some point but also be made mandatory due to some economical crisis. Bingo you have the mark. If you don't buy the religious angle think of the power a government would have if they always knew where you were and what all you transactions were. Think of that power in the wrong hands. Remember that Adolf Hitler was democratically elected to office.
Don't believe the rambelings of these paranoid few? I visited Germany in the 70's. I find it hard to believe a nation filled with such wonderful people could have done what they did when Hitler was in control. If you know the German people like I do you can understand how I believe worse things can happen here. The "Elite" such as the likes of Bill & Hillary can justify anything if they twist it hard enought to make it sound good and so many believed their garbadge. Worse can happen here!
I think we've nailed this topic like a group of prophets. We know exactly what is about to happen, and almost exactly how it will proceed.
Due to another fact -- that the future of the chip is driven by the almighty dollar -- I believe that there are only two solutions that will work to "postpone" this from happening. One is the industrial method of buying up your threat and placing it in long-term storage, including its associated patents, and the other is by petitioning a law or creating another forceful wall against its progression.
To begin defending yourself, who among you is capable, and will begin a petition to seed a law that will uphold our consititutional rights in this matter? Will somebody capable PLEASE build a petition web-site and mass-advertise it quickly!
This is your chance to make prophets into liars. Create a vehicle that we can use to uphold our rights, and we will all stand together to keep them -- before the "system" makes it impossible to reverse.
Whatever we may think of it, you know the government will just say F--- you anyway, so why complain? It didn't do any good in London, where there are cameras EVERYWHERE watching all the citizens. They're hidden in everything from streetlights to stoplights to building facades. So instead, I think the only real way to prevent this is to simply say, "F--- you" back, by coming up with (ideally) equally small devices which scramble the tracking frequencies. Just keep one on you, and you'll be fine. Of course, if the feds then try to make those all illegal, then we'll know for sure they're using them against us. Illegal for ex-cons, maybe, but not for us upstanding citezens.
