MEGIDDO -- Do you believe this?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
We have a small AM station nearby which is heard on the AM band only locally, but which broadcasts by satellite, short wave, and internet to a worldwide audience.
Periodically David Breshnihan (sp?), an investigative reporter for World Net Daily, appears as a guest. This evening he presented the following story:
From FBI contacts he learned that MEGIDDO will be carried out, not by arresting and jailing the targeted groups (too expensive) but by arresting, booking, fingerprinting and then putting them under a sort of house arrest. This will be in the form of inserting a tracking chip under their skins and by tatooing their left forearms with an invisible bar-code. They will then be let go and tracked by satellite.
This article is to be published within the week after more hard evidence is gathered. Right now they have the patents proving the capability to do this. Apparently, they need more proof that it will be done. The date given was before the end of the year.
It all sounds very Naziesque, but the ADL is helping in the publication and distribution.
Has anyone else heard anything about this?

I believe the technology is avaible, but is the gum'ment going to do it. Lets hope not. But then again, how do you know that a micro- transmitter has not already been planted under your skin and you just do not know it yet?

maybe troll but doesn't it still scare you that some pretty bad governmental behavior might take place during the chaos that may result from y2k. been done before. and unfortunately, undoing the damage after it occurs is too late. there may be lots of rights taken away with very little reparation after.

If the Feds could do this (meaning get people to stand for it) don't you think it would be easier to just have everyone hand over their guns and PGP encryption software? For the reasons listed in SO many other posts, I label this disinformation.
I do think that the technology exists, although I don't know that the chips might be that small. Heck, maybe at the company picnic we'll feel a sting in our butts, fall over asleep, wake up with a radio collar on our necks and a tag in our ear, and wander home to see ourselves being tracked on Mutual of Omaha's wild life kingdom.
Any way, I said my piece, but I'm willing to listen to any proof that turns up.

Not a threat, just an observation.

Let's think this through.
Big Bro is worried because some folks are going to do bad things when computer, computer, communications and energy technologies have problems.
So Big Bro is gonna implant all those bad folks with electronic tracking devices which require computer, communications, satellite and energy technologies to track those bad folks.
Hmmm... It sounds like a fed.gov plan hatched at the highest levels of the current mis-administration.
