NBC says it will happen sooner than we think.


NBC: Your Children Will Definitely Be Microchipped
Posted by admin on September 11, 2017
An NBC News report that promotes the microchipping of children asserts that it will happen “sooner rather than later” and that Americans will eventually accept the process as something just as normal as the barcode.

It goes on to highlight mother of three Steffany Rodroguez-Neely, who talks about how she briefly lost her daughter after she hid behind a rack of clothes, bringing to the fore, “every parent’s nightmare when you can’t find your child.”
“If it’ll save my kid, there’s no stuff that’s too extreme,” says Rodroguez-Neely. “Micro-chipping would be an extra layer of protection, if something bad does happen.”

Rodroguez-Neely goes on to explain how she has braved skepticism from members of the local Tampa Bay Moms Group, people like Kerri Levey, who are wary about implanting their own children.
“You’re putting a battery in your kid, you’re putting a chip in your kid. And, where does it stop,” asks Levey. “Where? It’s going too far. This is a child we’re talking about.”
“If a small chip the size of a grain of rice could have prevented a tragedy, I think most parents would have said, I think I would have done it,” responds Rodroguez-Neely.
The piece flips back to pushing the idea when it quotes electronics expert Stuart Lipoff, who asserts that microchipping children is safe and inevitable.
“People should be aware that testing is being done right now. The military is not only testing this out, but already utilizes its properties. It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when,” states Lipoff.
Lipoff also told NBC that people shouldn’t be concerned about “big brother” tracking their children and that the technology was merely an upgrade on the traditional barcode.

“When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way,” he states, adding that it will “definitely happen”.
NBC reporter Melanie Michael appears to agree, remarking that the size of the chip is “very very small” and that “the expert tells us this will happen sooner rather than later.”
“You can bet somewhere someone someday is going to pull this off and we could see those microchips in everyone,” she adds.
The sheer creepiness of children being treated like barcoded products seems to be lost on Michael.
The entire premise of the piece is extremely odd to say the least. Did Rodroguez-Neely approach NBC with the idea to promote implantable microchips as a way of finding lost children, or is the segment a pure propaganda blitz to normalize the idea in the minds of the viewers?
Either way, it doesn’t come across as very balanced, aggressively promoting the safety aspect of the microchip over concerns about its clear Orwellian scope.

What do you think? Would you microchip your child?

Who needs to microchip us when we have cell phones; damn things are on kids as reliably as a chip & the govt can track their whereabouts just fine crazy .

Seriously Orwellian [bleep] here. Just insane. Convenience (laziness) and fear (gullibility) drive an awful lot of what we do these days.


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

And girls would subject themselves to losing three out of four limbs before they'd give up THEIRS...

Repeat offenders should be micro chipped....so cemeteries could be quickly scanned to make sure they're still there.

Correct me if I am wrong but don't the readers have to be within a few inches to read the chip?
What good is a chip going to do if you have to get that close to to read it?

How will microchipping save the small yard-ape from a tragedy?

Your little 8 year old girl is walking home from the school bus stop, the bad guy grabs her, throws her in the car and takes her back to his house 20 miles away.
What good will that chip do? It is not a gps.

Scary times we live in, that people think a chip will save them.

The "chip" technology will inevitably evolve into a tracking device, a record keeping device, a device that collects information and communicates with a central database, and ultimately a device that is able to prevent or discourage certain behaviors or actions. Why wouldn't it?

Wished I'd chopped mine off! Would have saved me lots of trouble.

Yes. Tracking ones phone makes way more sense. Much greater range.

No plans for more kids here, but I'd never allow such with mine.

Not kid related, but the cool trendy types will line up for this.
Look at other electronic banking tech, it is now being forced
on us and people brag about using it.
Our HR lady ask me why I don't do direct deposit.

"Because I use cash".

"Well you could go to the bank atm and get cash"

"I can go to the bank and cash my F'n check"
