RE: Who's ready for their RFID ?
I have never seen the rationale for all the paranoia over identity issues. We live in the Computer Age. Everyone of you is identified already to the hilt. Making it more efficient offers a major benefit - getting illegals out of the job market, thieves from robbing us in billions thru fraud, not to mention preventing terrorists from melting into our society, where they can buy guns and explosives by using easily faked picture IDs. I see nothing wrong with some biometric database that homogenizes the process of identity. Besides, when the devil comes, he can just type *666* into the database, and find all of those he has marked, so he can easiy send their immortal souls to everlasting hell. So just check your number closly, and you'll be OK.
BTW - have any of you taken to wearing a Flashdrive around your neck like a New Age Crucifix? I have.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
