    Oh, but it does. A satellite will track your every move so you can be transported to a FEMA camp to await a death panel.

    I don't buy into the "can't be forged" thing. Can't yet be forged, ok. But regardless, it doesn't need to amass my information in an easily read card. Biometrics and RFID are not reasonable things to be placing into government issued ID. We have enough already.

    It can be forged.
    The problem is you can't change your biometric data.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    ....and what does that have to do with anything?

    Nope, no can do. I was against a national ID under Bush. My position remains the same. I doubt they'll make them fire proof.

    This always makes me think of the movie Demolition Man. A central computer knew where everyone was at all times and pretty much what they were doing.

    Aw ****.

    *BUZZ*

    You have been fined one credit for violation of the verbal morality standard.

    Um, yeah. Thanks but no thanks on the in-body surveillance.

    But how would that happen? Will this card transmit a signal to a satellite or something? No. It will simply match you when you present it the way you do now to get a job or whatever, like having your picture on a card would. Big deal.

    The scariest part is that you actually believe that.

    National biometric ID? Let the state's DMVs issue them. The infrastructure is already in place. I see no problem at all. What's the big deal? It might help identify people that don't belong here. The more I think about it, it's a great Idea.
    It's not a GPS tracking device, it's just an ID that's harder to fake.
