Seasons Change

It has been said, we will not know the hour or the day, but we will know the season.

Tracking chips used for livestock are quickly and effectively being introduced to humans as a necessary health and security measure. They are evident in the form of RFID chips in Driver's Licenses and Passports (both measures recently approved but not yet implemented) and a plan by Verichip and parent company Applied Digital Solutions, the only company to offer an FDA-approved human-implantable RFID microchip, to make the Verichip a global means of human identification for medical and security purposes, i.e., implanting the world.

Verichip is also being used and marketed as a payment method in several clubs for VIPs.

Part of the official Verichip marketing plan is to find high profile individuals and celebrities to promote the technology by being implanted, getting chipped. Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson and former Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge have recently been appointed, respectively, to the board of directors of Verichip and Digital Angel (Applied Digital subsidiary). Both are getting chipped. Thompson, coincidentally I'm sure, had a key role in promoting Verichip while he was employed in the Health Department under the first Bush Administration.

more to come. and much more out there if you look for yourself.
