Real ID Act. We're slipping down that really slippery slope.
Here's the Proposed Act.
Here's a news article about it, but this article is from 2005.
Remember when I posted something about something 'good' always has a 'bad' component to it? Here's another example. We want to know where everything (products) comes from so if there is a safety issue we will know where to focus our attention. As soon as the process has been settled in and debugged, perhaps the next step is to insert a little RFID tag under the skin at the base of the head. (That's our heads. Under our skin.) With each piece of security and safety that is installed, there's an opposite loss to our privacy and personal freedoms.
