"I've Got You Under Your Skin!"

by pessimist

Calling all you GOP-suckass corporate-defender whores! Big Brother can now watch you 24 hours a day - subcutaneously! Volunteer to be the first at your job to become RFID-tagged as a condition of employment:

Via lambert's blog (via Avedon (via Jeralyn)), get this:

Two employees have been injected with RFID chips this week as part of a new requirement to access their company's datacenter.

In the past, employees accessed the room with an RFID tag which hung from their keychains, however under the new regulations an implantable, glass encapsulated RFID tag from VeriChip must be injected into the bicep to gain access, a release from said on Thursday.

Isn't that great, Freeper$? Can't wait to get your very own 'mark of the Beast', can you?

But, just to show there is a Deity, ...

Ironically, the extra security sought may be offset by a recent discovery of Jonathan Westhues, where the security researcher showed the VeriChip can be skimmed and cloned, duplicating an implant’s authentication. When contacted, those at CityWatcher were unaware of the chip's security issue, according to the release.

Ah, the best laid plans of fascist mice and Christian chickenhawks gang aft agley, don't they?

Lambert has more to say:

So, having a RFID chip implanted is now a condition of employment? Is that legal? And those work permits the Republicans want everyone to get—would those be RFID implants too?

The company’s called CityWatcher. Savor their mission statement.

NOTE See Rev. 13:16-18 for “666,” the mark of the beast. This happy news hasn’t yet been reflected on the rapture index, but I’m sure that’s only a matter of time…

Our friends are a bit behind the times! Hospitals are considering using it, cops have them in case they get wounded, British soldiers already have them (which makes one believe that US troops do as well!) - the possibilities are endless! Maybe universal!

And the good news for our wrong-wing friends? There has been research toward developing methods of behavior modification using RFID tags! Once we reclaim our rightful position as the majority in this nation, we can inject all you dopes and make you see the error of your ways through Pavlovian training, just like this article presents.

Doesn't that sound like fun?

And think of the Homeland Security possibilities! Just capture every Muslim in the world and tie them to a chair - just like they do for meals at Guantanamo - then inject them with the RFID device and turn them loose! With the marvels of Microsoft surveillance technology now available to China's Golden Shield Project, the location of anyone anywhere in the world could be kept in a big database (operated by people with RFID tags in their arms!) and that way, terrorism can be eliminated!

Isn't that great?

So show your patriotism and your disdain for personal liberties! Demand to be chipped right away, like the manly men you Yellow Elephants are! Your nation's security demands immediate action, so don't delay!
