  • this implant will eventually become a global mandate!

    Not only foolproof ID and authentification purposes aside, the
    whole scenario has already been laid out long ago. RFID is
    going to be the vehicle for all personal commerce transactions
    and POS terminals and cellular, GPS, microwave, and a host of
    other wireless technologies will make man and machine as One.

    Remember, when it comes down to where no one can buy or sell
    without this implant in their right hand or forehead, you'll know
    what this really is?

  • RFID CHIP

    Billy B38 made some good points not to mention the Bibical aspect of here is the countdown. Additional reading mentioned that these chips were readable from 50 ft. away does anyone else have information on this? RFID chips sound good for medical information reasons ..but does any one remember when they said the SSN would not be used for identification purposes?
