Several months back we reported on RFID (radio frequency identification chips) and warned that they could be used in devious ways by the government. Well, the prediction is coming true.
Recall that microchips are now implanted in your pets. They are also used by grocery stores to track what they sell and who they sell it to, as well as when they sell it. Vets use RFID chips that contain information about your pet including YOUR NAME, YOUR ADDRESS, YOUR PHONE NUMBER and whatever the veterinarian wants to include about your pet AND YOU!
Now the government "experts" are wanting to expand the usage of this technology. They claim that they could be used to track the whereabouts of convicted felons released from prison (and just regular people too - especial at airports). These chips are already used to track farm animals and are used at gasoline stations at the pumps, and anti-theft devices for your cars.
Now there's talk of "chipping" your children so teachers can take attendance at school. Police could track your car and read data about YOU without needing license plates!
All these wonderful uses, but the "experts" omit the ethical arguments. You will have NO PRIVACY whatsoever. Hackers can buy and use the scanners used to decode these chips to STEAL YOUR INFORMATION.
So here we go again. A new technology can now be used to SPY on us all. Don't let this happen. Voice your opposition or suffer the consequences.
