    Remember the past, particularly from Obama's "Polish death camps." Don't miss the comments.

    Not surprising that they talk about doing this to infants at birth. Nobody else, child or adult, would ever consent to it. I would never consent to it for my babies. If they ever try to make this madatory, a lot of folks will just go back to having their babies at home.

    Well I am sure it is coming at some point down the road, I am sure the Government is just waiting for the excuse to implement a program and I am would assume it would be the Military first. Considering the military members like myself are forced to give up many constitutional rights to serve and are considered government property. Would people blindly conform I think many sheep in this country would and the select that choose to fight it will likely have no knock warrants served on their home for "terrorism" by overzealous officers looking to please their masters as examples of people to not support. Will something like this happen? It has happened in one form or another in the past and the only difference here is the technology that surrounds it.

    There are folks who make a living by changing barcodes and altering RIF chip data. I have no doubt there wouls spring up quite the cottage industry in either voiding these things, setting them to a null, or converting you to someone like The Donald (Imagine going up to an ATM and hitting the keys for some walking-around cash and having the machine think you are The Donald because your RIF chip says so? Imagine how THe Donald would react? RIF chips deactivated tout suite!)

    Build a better mousetrap and someone will be right along hacking it.

    stay safe.
