Growing up in a Southern Baptist church, there were alot of Sundays when the preacher at our church gave sermons on his favorite subjects of choice; sin, fire-and- brimstone, more sin, with a particular focus on Revelation and the Biblical passages which included the mark of the beast and humans being forced to physically wear the 'computer chip' on their bodies. All of these things were to be interpreted by believers as signs of the end of the world which was a very jagged pill to swallow at a young age.
Ironically, when President George W. Bush, a southern born, self proclaimed Christian passed legislation in 2004 allowing the Food & Drug Administration to "tag humans," with the RFID (radio frequency verification) chips injected in the tricep, it seemed a bit ill conceived and religiously manipulative. The RFID Verification chip acts as a personal GPS device, supposedly making it easier to retreive medical records. Now over 2,000 people worldwide have volunteered to receive the RFID chip implants. Several recent "volunteers" were 111 elderly Alzheimer's patients at a Retirement Community in West Palm Beach, FL. Maybe a cell phone on a rope, (cell phones have GPS) kind of like soap on a roap would have been more humane, at least they would have had a choice to wear it or not.
It is no coincidence that President Bush has a close relationship with adviser Richard Land. This friendship was established years before Bush won the White House and Land is President of the SBC's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. The National Journal, a weekly national magazine widely read on Capitol Hill which addresses matters of politics, policy and government described Richard Land as "measured when articulating his views, a characteristic somewhat odds with the fire-and-brimstone preacher stereotype." In the magazine's May 22, 2004 edition, staffers identified Land as "One of 113 Americans who will help the policy makers in Washington plot the country's course in 10 critical areas: intelligence reform; workforce quality; Social Security; China; same-sex "marriage"; global warming; drug pricing; weapons threat; church and state; and bioengineering." What I want to know is how Richard Land influenced President Bush's decision in regards to the RFID verichip legislation since his familarity with biblical prophecy could help strike fear into the masses.
The Government continues to glamorize the RFID Verichip as an act of love. Chipping your pet and the elderly is just the beginning, the next stages will include marketing the new cool 'RFID Chip' trend to your teenagers on MTV and Nickelodean, and then chipping your newborn infant before you leave the hospital. In the trial stages the RFID Chip will retain all of your medical records; in the future your personal id and employment information and eventually your financial and banking information. In the South, especially in Texas, the RFID Verichip is just a fancy and cleverly disguised name for Branding. Livestock Branding has been the standard method of marking livestock in America since the arrival of the Spaniards in the 1500's but instead of branding cattle, it will now be humans. According to Ranch Irons, a livestock website, "Livestock Branding is done with several methods; not just the traditional Hot Iron Branding that we know from the old west. There are also other forms of branding including: freeze branding, chemical branding, tattooing, ear notching and the use of electronic tags." The RFID Verification chip is government surveillance at it's finest and just like a cattle through a pasture, your every move will be traced.
IBM, the manufacturer and leader of the RFID Chip technology should be a serious a cause of concern for every citizen. Historically, IBM Corporation used their technology to help implement the Holocaust. Hitler and the Nazi party partnered with IBM to invent the Hollerith machine, an archaeic computer / calculator that could count and sort people in a way that was never possible before. The Hollerith machine input the information from the census sent out across Europe before the Nazi party implemented their racist agenda. In other words, all the information collected from the census in Europe told the Nazi party specifically where the Jewish families were living, how many children they had, members in their household, income levels, etc. (Yes, kind of like our US census -go figure.) Now all the Nazi soldiers had to do was march in to targeted areas and households. Scary right? Well the information collected and processed from the Hollerith machine is what created the strategy to 'transport & terminate' the lives of 3.5 million people. Sadly, it was very effective.
Tell me, what do you get when you take a multi-billion dollar technology corporation like IBM; improve upon the intention of the Hollerith machines old technology, add the speed of todays lightening fast computer systems and create tracking devices able to fit into a teeny tiny capsule injectable in the body? The RFID verification chip.
Remember, IBM may morph into another subsidiary in the future to sell a similar crappy RFID chip product but it can never hide it's ugly history or the original intention of branding or tagging people as the FDA refers to it. Livestock is tracked for a reason far beyond the boundaries of terrorism; it assures that a private owner or corporations financial investment follows the heard, that their labor force stays in line at all times, pays taxes, is healthy and accountable for via surveillance, yields a profit for their labor and remains obedient lest they be led to the slaughter house. Just watch some of the videos at the Humane Society of how tagged livestock are really treated; www.hsus.org
Today, President Bush is preparing to sign a bill that overhauls secret government eavesdropping and grants immunity to telecommunications companies that helped the U.S. spy on Americans in suspected terrorism cases. It ended almost a year long battle in the Democratic-led Congress over surveillance rules and the president's warrantless wiretapping program initiated after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The bills approval came after a lengthy debate that placed privacy and civil liberties concerns against the desire to prevent terrorist attacks.
Now let us reconsider the definition of terrorists. The text book definition of terrorist is; 1) A radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities
2) A person who terrorizes or frightens others.
I'm not sure how you feel but I find it frightening that a President of the United States and my Elected Represenatives would pass legislation to inject citizens with RIFD chips like livestock, manufactured by a company with involvement in the Holocaust AND pass a new bill today that infringes on my civil liberties as a citizen. In fact, the RFID verification chip is government surveillance at it's finest and it is a method of control that not only threatens our individual freedom and liberties, but the future of our children- the next generation of American citizens. Citizens were never meant to be tracked like cattle or deer through a forest!
Now let me ask you a very important question; Have you ever stopped to wonder exactly what happened to the Nazi party? Goodness, I thought they were friends with the Ku Klux Klan. However, if you are a history buff do you know if anyone from either the Nazi party, KKK or their decendants landed on Capitol Hill? My college History professor said that we integrated quite a few members of the Nazi party into our own Government. So if we did, exactly what kind of up-to-date strategy and team agenda would they create? An RFID Verification chip perhaps. Just a thought.
Oh, this reminds me of a saying we minorities have down South when the Klan is very quite;
" Just because you cannot see the Devil, does not mean he's not there. Sometimes he and his minions are much closer than you think. "
Unlike the sermons heard most of my life, I will not succumb to believing this is the end of the world, but instead remain optimistic. It is only a matter of time until people begin to wake up angry at the political corruption, lazy overpaid elected officials and legislators, unfair minimum wage, high gas wages, enforced poverty and personal losses of soldiers who were NOT strangers but friends, lovers, fathers, husbands, wives, mothers, sons, daughters, cousins, uncles and aunts. Righteous anger, which inspires people towards a social movement of real change; causing them to raise their voices, protest, march to create a new world and better quality of life for themselves and their children. The American people deserve a higher standard of living and to be treated better than a herd of 'tagged' cattle. Long Live- Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness and a Constitution that protects us ALL from the roots of a racist political agenda. We, the American People should never be afraid of our Government, our Government should be afraid of us. It is time to take a stand against the Political and Financial Corruption plaguing our country, only ACTION will instigate change. Haven't you had enough?
Please write your State Senator and PROTEST THE RFID Verification CHIP today!
