    Which is generally considered to be paranoia.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I guess you can consider desiring privacy as paranoia, but it's not.

    No idea, but there was certainly one in the early 2000's when I was in high school. And apparently there's an actual law and everything: Stand or be suspended.

    My jaw hit the floor when they actually suspended me. *shrugs* Wasn't the first time I'd been suspended, but definitely for the dumbest reason.

    There's a world of difference between privacy, and some little chip that tells the school campus if you're where you're supposed to be, when you're supposed to be there. They used to have this thing back in my day called "role call" that did the same thing.

    Except this little card tells others where you are when you don't arrive. If I was there than obviously the card wouldn't come into play.

    I never heard of that either, but in the early 2000's I was skipping school to smoke pot and drink cheap liquor.

To get from the street to my desk I must use this badge THREE times to access the parking lot, the building, and then the area where my desk is. If I go to the cafeteria for food I have to use it to get back into my work area.

    I see nothing wrong with this sort of security precaution.

    Only if you're on campus.

    I find the whole discussion kind of ridiculous. Any child or pet of mine would be microchipped. In fact both of my pets to date have been microchipped.

    What school you attend can be a choice. At least in many places.

    Besides, this is a safety and security issue, which is something I would think most parents approve of.
