17. A nice idea in theory. Sadly, our government is not our parent AND
Edited on Sun Aug-07-05 04:28 PM by HypnoToad
looking at those in charge of our government, I cannot trust them.

Even if I could trust them now, a future one might prove themselves untrustworthy.

I DO see the positive side in these chips.

Unfortunately, until they can actively monitor the health of the person stuck with the chip, I do not see how a RFID chip can do what a cell phone can't. Particularly as we all don't go rock climbing or work in desert cartography for a living...
