Comments on VeriChip Chairman Proposes RFID Chips For Immigrants
Looks like VeriChip is looking to expand its market; what works for cattle should work for guest workers, apparently. (Read the complete story)

"Ugh -- a nasty man with a vile idea. Let's hope VeriChip goes the way of Enron."

"How about placing the chip in our soldiers so when they are captured we can track them?? Why hasen't the military done this if the technology is out there?"
( 6/1/2006 10:23:35 AM)
"If the captors knew the soldiers had trackable implants, they would simply kill them on the spot."

"The VeriChip cannot be read from far away; typically the reader is only a few feet away from the tag. However, the Pentagon has had a similar idea; a 'dog tag' that has a powerful transponder to report both the identity of an individual soldier and his position. See the article on Digital Dog Tags."

"Soon this will be required for everyone. Jail inmates will be the first"

"You know where this leads to don't you? We as a people had better wake up to the fact that Jesus is returning soon.......... Are you ready , because this is the middle of the end for man kind as we know it. It's better to know Christ for one day than to live a life time without him........... Get to know him TODAY !!!!"

"I hope some people reading this are stockpiling ammunition. You know we don't really have to take this. Oh, and being a soldier myself, I wouldn't use anything, dog tags or not, that had a RFID chip. I'd fry the thing with a portable RFID Zapper first."

"Nice story as for me. It would be great to read something more concerning that theme."
