I haven't decided if this article is true yet BUT I did find this at [link to www.wyomingpolicy.org] from the Wyoming Policy Institute.



They who can give up essential liberty to obtain safety deserve neither safety nor liberty ~ B. Franklin

________________________________________________________

Livestock are monitored with Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID), as mandated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At the time, it made sense and no one complained. After all, livestock is a private property issue just like branding. In 2012, a Texas school district began implanting the same type of RFID chips into student identification cards to monitor student movements on campus and to track them as they come and go from school.



Lyman, Wyoming was the first locale in the state to pilot the RFID program, and some parents were not happy about it.

A concerned parent wrote a letter to the editor in January 2013 expressing concern on privacy issues. However, officials at Laramie County School District #1 might not have gotten that memo. Parents in LCSD#1 that have children participating in summer school can expect the use of RFID tags. Officials during the May 20 school board meeting stated their intention to use RFID tags for PreK thru 6th grade bus students for the upcoming session, before expanding throughout the district in the months to follow.



Why?



Safety! The technology will allow parents to receive an email/text message when a student boards and de-boards a bus to ensure they are in the right place at the right time. Through the guise of “safety”, parents could actually be teaching their children that liberty and freedom are ok to be infringed upon. “Give up a little of your personal freedom so we can be sure you’re safe.” Some parents will not see a problem with this, after all adults have already fallen victim to this mentality through airport security, Real ID, the Patriot Act and with UPC coding.



We’re not talking conspiracy here. Let us look at the history.



UPC bar code patents were approved in 1952; however, it took twenty years before they caught on. In 1962, only 15,000 suppliers were using bar codes. In 1987, 75,000 suppliers were using bar codes! What caused the change? Wal-Mart. When Wal-Mart stated they wanted to use bar codes to manage inventory, suppliers began listening and if you did not use bar codes, then you lost Wal-Mart’s business. Today, bar codes are on every product and you don’t see the cashier typing in prices of items as they did in the 70’s at the local Piggy-Wiggly. UPC coding allowed stores to track what was purchased and how much is left in stock. Sounds harmless.



However, that technology has now morphed into a new revolution. RFID tags. RFID is essentially a microchip that acts as a transmitter which sends radio signals to RFID readers. Moreover, the RFID technology is already in use and all around us. Dog or cat microchips, Alzheimer patients, tollbooth EZ Pass, credit card SpeedPass, Delta checked luggage…all use RFID.



So how secure is the information? In a world where we are seeing government agencies and banks being hacked on a daily basis, what do you think?



LCSD#1 wants to use RFID to monitor when and where a student gets on or off a school bus. Sure, this sounds like a safety precaution, which is great for anyone who realizes that today’s world is not safe. However, how can this technology be expanded upon? Will parents be able to “opt-out”? Can you turn the RFID off? Who has access to the data? Will this expand to tracking all movements? It seems many limits can be placed on liberty in the guise of safety.



Is expedience really the answer here? Sometimes the ‘ability’ to do something doesn’t mean it ‘should’ be done. Ultimately, who is responsible for the safety and security of our children? The parents. And the teachers, while they are in school. The easy way out…to treat our kids like cattle…may not be the best way. What are we really teaching them by doing this? That “the government” has the authority to know your every movement? That being tracked is ‘normal’?



There is already talk about putting medical records on a RFID chip as well as technology which will allow you to interface with your bank for purchases through RFID instead of a debit or credit card.



In a world where privacy is becoming outdated, Congress should require that consumers be notified about products with embedded RFID tags. We should know when we are being tagged. We should also be able to disable the chips in, and on, our own property. If it is property belonging to the company we work for, that is one thing; but if it is ours, we should be able to control whether tracking is enabled.

The mark of the beast has arrive in a town near you. Its time to make a decision. Will you take the chip or not?:

State employees must take the chip or loose their jobs.



<NationalReport>The “Obamacare” RFID chips are currently being given a test run on the proud and patriotic citizens of Hanna, Wyoming.
Over the last two weeks a special piece of legislation has been passed making it mandatory for anyone who receives welfare, or any other form of government assistance to be implanted with these new identification chips. Even select government employees and officials have been ordered to receive the new sub-dermal device, which is typically implanted in the fatty tissue of the individual’s buttock. Police officers, military, even garbage men will all be required to have the RFID chip by the end of next month or face termination from their jobs.

Satirical article creates stir in Wyoming town

'CASPER, Wyo. — A spoof on radio frequency identification chips created real concern for some readers and dubious national attention for the small southern Wyoming coal mining town of Hanna.

The calls began pouring into Hanna Town Clerk Vivian Gonzales’ office early Monday morning. Was a local ordinance really requiring its government-assisted citizens to be implanted with identification chips?

The callers’ anxiety stemmed from an article on a website called National Report, which claimed Hanna was part of an Obamacare pilot program, and that the town mayor, “Ted Howell,” was the first recipient of an RFID chip.

“I’ve had people call from all over the U.S., from citizens to pastors to doctors, asking if this is really true,” Gonzales said.

By Monday afternoon, Gonzales had screened about 50 callers from states such as Vermont, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama and Washington, many requesting a word with the mayor. A caller from Minnesota told her the story had been picked up by a Bible prophecy radio show...'

The mark itself won't come until the last possible minute, because by that time, the game is up.

Consider this: Jesus said he would shorten the days of the tribulation. How can he do that? A very specific number of days was given, and he doesn't know the last day, when they are up.

He shortened the days by giving us the signs, which were passed down for 2000 years to us by faithful Christians. He forced the beast to operate as much as possible in secret, and implement his plans in secret, and hold off the mark as long as possible.

We are living on borrowed time, by the grace of Jesus, and the times we fear could be upon us faster than we expect, because they have been shortened from the opening and not the ending.

I haven't decided if this article is true yet BUT I did find this at [link to www.wyomingpolicy.org] from the Wyoming Policy Institute.



They who can give up essential liberty to obtain safety deserve neither safety nor liberty ~ B. Franklin

________________________________________________________

Livestock are monitored with Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID), as mandated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At the time, it made sense and no one complained. After all, livestock is a private property issue just like branding. In 2012, a Texas school district began implanting the same type of RFID chips into student identification cards to monitor student movements on campus and to track them as they come and go from school.



Lyman, Wyoming was the first locale in the state to pilot the RFID program, and some parents were not happy about it.

A concerned parent wrote a letter to the editor in January 2013 expressing concern on privacy issues. However, officials at Laramie County School District #1 might not have gotten that memo. Parents in LCSD#1 that have children participating in summer school can expect the use of RFID tags. Officials during the May 20 school board meeting stated their intention to use RFID tags for PreK thru 6th grade bus students for the upcoming session, before expanding throughout the district in the months to follow.



Why?



Safety! The technology will allow parents to receive an email/text message when a student boards and de-boards a bus to ensure they are in the right place at the right time. Through the guise of “safety”, parents could actually be teaching their children that liberty and freedom are ok to be infringed upon. “Give up a little of your personal freedom so we can be sure you’re safe.” Some parents will not see a problem with this, after all adults have already fallen victim to this mentality through airport security, Real ID, the Patriot Act and with UPC coding.



We’re not talking conspiracy here. Let us look at the history.



UPC bar code patents were approved in 1952; however, it took twenty years before they caught on. In 1962, only 15,000 suppliers were using bar codes. In 1987, 75,000 suppliers were using bar codes! What caused the change? Wal-Mart. When Wal-Mart stated they wanted to use bar codes to manage inventory, suppliers began listening and if you did not use bar codes, then you lost Wal-Mart’s business. Today, bar codes are on every product and you don’t see the cashier typing in prices of items as they did in the 70’s at the local Piggy-Wiggly. UPC coding allowed stores to track what was purchased and how much is left in stock. Sounds harmless.



However, that technology has now morphed into a new revolution. RFID tags. RFID is essentially a microchip that acts as a transmitter which sends radio signals to RFID readers. Moreover, the RFID technology is already in use and all around us. Dog or cat microchips, Alzheimer patients, tollbooth EZ Pass, credit card SpeedPass, Delta checked luggage…all use RFID.



So how secure is the information? In a world where we are seeing government agencies and banks being hacked on a daily basis, what do you think?



LCSD#1 wants to use RFID to monitor when and where a student gets on or off a school bus. Sure, this sounds like a safety precaution, which is great for anyone who realizes that today’s world is not safe. However, how can this technology be expanded upon? Will parents be able to “opt-out”? Can you turn the RFID off? Who has access to the data? Will this expand to tracking all movements? It seems many limits can be placed on liberty in the guise of safety.



Is expedience really the answer here? Sometimes the ‘ability’ to do something doesn’t mean it ‘should’ be done. Ultimately, who is responsible for the safety and security of our children? The parents. And the teachers, while they are in school. The easy way out…to treat our kids like cattle…may not be the best way. What are we really teaching them by doing this? That “the government” has the authority to know your every movement? That being tracked is ‘normal’?



There is already talk about putting medical records on a RFID chip as well as technology which will allow you to interface with your bank for purchases through RFID instead of a debit or credit card.



In a world where privacy is becoming outdated, Congress should require that consumers be notified about products with embedded RFID tags. We should know when we are being tagged. We should also be able to disable the chips in, and on, our own property. If it is property belonging to the company we work for, that is one thing; but if it is ours, we should be able to control whether tracking is enabled.

Oh, no! You just confronted people with the FACTS! They don't want to see or hear the FACTS! Here's another FACT! The technology to electronically bio-electrically ID you via your heart or brains electrical "signals" already exists in the form of a wireless chipless electronic RFID "tattoo". Best place to have this electronic tattoo put "on" you to monitor your heart is your "right hand"! Best place to put an electronic tattoo "on" you to monitor your brainwaves is your "forehead"! These people on these websites that attempt to make fun of all this, and those who scoff at this, are there to make it look like those who oppose this are, somehow, mentally "off"! Get it! Its not
a "conspiracy theory"! Somark Innovations developed this technology back in 2005! They offer it for use on livestock, on animals involved in experiments, on things, and planned on using it on soldiers, (which they may already be doing)! One day, they claim, it could even be used on humans! In a "crisis" situation, which this nation and the world are only now confronting, will this become a reality? I think it will!

Re: 666 RFID Chip Now Being Issued In Hanna, Wyoming As Part Of New “Obamacare” Plan
Hanna, WY, has a population of less than 900 people and all of them are ARMED. Anybody who ties to "chip" one of them won't live very long.
