Default Embedding Chips in Humans

hmm ...


http://www.fox29.com/news/269835700-story


RIVER FALLS, Wisc. (WTXF) - You’re probably going to be hungry at work if you forget your wallet, but one company is becoming first in the U.S. to implant microchips in workers -- so they can make purchases.

“Three Square Market” in Wisconsin says employees will be able to buy things in their break room market -- and also open doors, log in to computers and use the copy machine -- all, with the implanted scanning chip which won’t be required.

The chip -- no larger than a small grain of rice -- will be implanted between the thumb and forefinger under the skin.

The company is expecting more than 50 staff members to be voluntarily chipped with the technology.

Another big question: Will the chips also have a GPS tracking system? The company says no.

CEO Todd Westby says he thinks employee microchips are the wave of the future

”Yes, basically what this is considered is a break room market in an office complex,” Westby explained. “You'll come up, scan the item, we'll hit 'Pay with credit card' and it's asking to swipe my proximity payment now. I'll hold my hand up, just like the cell phone and it will pay for my product.”

Three Square Market says the microchip data is both encrypted and secure, and there's no GPS tracking at all.

OK....I'm not a biblical scholar but that can be construed as taking the mark of the Beast (Devil) if you are into scripture.

I'd rather not????

Think most older people will not go for this but can see younger generation doing so .. convenience and not worrying about losing ids, CCs and such.

The one thing I think will definitely make this main stream is the chips become GPS (or something similar) enabled and are presented as a child safety issue … missing children. Once that happens parents will buy into in it and kids will grow up with them and therefore have no qualms when they become adults with children. Eventually most will have this. May take a generation but will happen.

The argument will be mobile devices and badges can be lost or stolen. Hard to lose a hand or have it stolen ... guess it could be stolen but would be pretty obvious

I have a client, piloting a similar program now...badging, cafeteria plan, insurance is all part of it. As a contractor we're exempted from participating, but they are 6 mos or so into it & so far feedback from pilot participants has been positive. They had a list of those wanting to be part of pilot, as soon as the CIO opted out...the list shrunk 75%...lol

They are a ~$10B private & self insured company, the ROI i'ved heard tossed around is 3yrs with a perpetual $500k cost savings

I am afraid it's coming whether we like it or not if we live long enough to see it. The cashless society will eventually take hold also IMO in the future if certain groups has their way.

Mark of the Beast or a prelude to it.

If the government can force you to buy medical insurance they can/will foce you to implant a chip.

I worked at a company once where they issued you a badge that would open doors for you and you could use it in the cafeteria to pay for food. I think I like the badge idea better.

Child safety.
But this is how it always works. Ease in the bad stuff. Like frogs in cool water on the stove.

Just try to understand the Satan comments.

I don't agree with chipping us, but I don't see it against God.

Yes I know the verse.

On my last deployment I had to take 4 days R&R. I went to Israel and I've always been a pretty devout Christian. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't shake the feeling of something is about to happen. And then I see this on the news the other night and just thought "hope it's not as soon as it seems"

Do y'all not already feel somewhat chipped currently?

I would assume 98% of people posting on here have a smart phone that's reading your every movement, tracking your search history/habits, etc.

I understand the reasoning behind most people saying they wouldn't want a chip inside their body but you're carrying a chip in your pocket for 8 plus hours a day...

With that being said I'm with all of y'all no one is putting a dang chip in me on my account!!
