Feds Leapfrog RFID Privacy Study
« on: December 02, 2006, 12:45:08 PM »
First, what are RFID chips?
Quote
RFID chips first appeared in tracking and access applications during the 1980s. These wireless AIDC systems allow for non-contact reading and are effective in manufacturing and other hostile environments where bar code labels could not survive. RFID has established itself in a wide range of markets including livestock identification and automated vehicle identification (AVI) systems because of its ability to track moving objects.
Now the story:

The story seems simple enough. An outside privacy and security advisory committee to the Department of Homeland Security penned a tough report concluding the government should not use chips that can be read remotely in identification documents. But the report remains stuck in draft mode, even as new identification cards with the chips are being announced.

According to a report on the news last night [1/1//07], it is now U.S. law, all flying in or out of the country will require passports.

I thought that to enter the country, a passport was always required???

It was, the exceptions were Mexico or Canada, now you need one if you go there as well.
John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me."
Sometimes the Gospel is not presented clearly enough for the non-elect to reject it.

Wow, that seems sort of draconian.  So if you're a U.S. citizen who has lived on the border of Mexico or Canada all your life and if you have relatives (parents, aunts, brothers, sisters, grandparents, etc.) who live 100 feet from you on the other side of the border, we have to get a passport to visit them????? :smack:

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.
