  • I know people who are so terrified of the government. I think it's silly. They already know everything about you. Do they really think there is any information that the government can't find out about you?

  • Some Jews felt that way when the Germans forced them to live in walled ghettos. It's amazing how easily people will give up their freedom. Small steps, that's all it takes.

  • Yes, I would care if the govt. micro-chipped me. What reason would they have to do it? I live a pretty normal life and they wouldn't find my schedule intriguing, so why would they want to know where I am at all times of the day? I use a cell phone and if they really want to know where I am, the extended PA that Obama signed would give them access to that info. If I choose to use a cell phone, I guess that's just one thing to take into consideration.

    I do however think that child predators should be micro-chipped when they are released from prison. Too many times we see tragic stories on the news about kids that were murdered by a repeat offender. If we have a better idea of where they are it would be easier to catch them and throw them back in prison where they belong.

  • No chips for me...they already have more info on me than they need. I am not an ANIMAL that needs to be tracked and reported upon. Besides, the chips they have been using in pets are now being associated with new canine/feline cancers.

  • They would have to bury it deep inside me, because I would be digging that thing out quickly. The government has way too much control.

  • You bet I'd care. That would make the US government not better than Nazi Germany.
