Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

Just Say No to the National Biometric ID Card!

Within a week of Mr. Thinking Mama's and my having to pay a humongous federal income tax bill because of his successful self-employment this past year, I shouldn't be surprised that the elites who run the government have come up with a new way to treat us like chattel. After all they extract money from us; why shouldn't they also try to control how we make that money? In many ways, they already do; I remember when employers were forced to start the ridiculous required showing of social security card and other i.d. in order, simply, to be employed. According to this article by John W. Whitehead, however, things can get worse. Much worse. The REAL ID concept has frightened me for years; however, Internet awareness caused citizens to raise quite the uproar against the bill authorizing it and many states protested, as I hope will also happen with Emperor O's magical-health-care-for-all. Congressional timewasters have found a new way, however, to monitor our every move. And this particular bill has bipartisan support, showing that, indeed, congress critters are united in their desire to take us to new socialistic heights. Of course, the mere mention of this country's lengthy but sure descent into socialism makes me a "moron" to the supposedly enlightened and progressive "left," otherwise intelligent people who can't quite seem to make an intelligent argument against the idea that Emperor O's magical-health-care-for-all plan. When one fails to make a cohesive argument, it is always a good idea, evidently, to resort to the same thing that my 5-, 7-, and 9-year-old too often attempt: Call the opposition a bad name. Nonetheless, all will suffer if this bill is passed:

A centerpiece of the immigration bill as proposed by Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is a requirement that all U.S. workers, citizen and resident alike, be required to obtain and carry biometric Social Security cards (national ID cards under a different name) in order to work within the United States. Attempting to appease critics of a national ID card, Schumer and Graham insist that "no government database would house everyone’s information" and that the "cards would not contain any private information, medical information, or tracking devices." However, those claims are blatantly false. Indeed, this proposed biometric card is nothing more than an end-run around opposition to a national ID card.

When I was growing up, not so long ago, I heard preachers talk about a "mark of the beast," although I don't often hear about it in today's government-sponsored churches. Yes, it seems like something of sci-fi novels and the wet dream of Big Brother come true, but however fictional it may seem, the reality is that it's the elite's way of controlling the chattel:

The time to resist is now. If we don’t, eventually, we will all have to possess one of these cards in order to be a functioning citizen in American society. Failing to have a biometric card will render you a non-person for all intents and purposes. Your whole life will depend on this card – your ability to work, travel, buy, sell, access health care, and so on.

What we used to call science fiction is now reality. And whether a national ID card is the mark of the Beast or the long arm of Big Brother, the outcome remains the same.


Or, you could be like my otherwise intelligent father-in-law. We were having a telephone conversation the other day and the subject came up of the TSA's pornographic X-rays of those who choose to fly these days. Mr. Thinking Mama's father assured me that this invasive step was necessary to stop the evil terrorists that anxiously await the opportunity to create a new 9-11. He also told me that the government is just trying to protect us. Ah, and I had so much respect for him. Evidently, his many years of working in mainstream media has brought him fully in line with what the elite would like for him to believe. However, I'm teaching his grandchildren the truth.

I've long thought that Closed Adoption was an experiment to see how much the government could control people. Socialism in (excuse the pun) baby steps...I started some research a few months to see what party the Governers were in who signed passed bills to keep us from our records-interestingly what I have found so far, they were all Demodemons (as I call them). I am neither left or right, but I do not support the left at all. I agree with you, that that these cards are creepy.

We'll not see any real socialism. If it was in place where adoption is concerned, then the families would be receiving aid to stay together.

Closed adoption comes under the heading of social engineering, to me. That's Right-Wing thinking with a bit of Facism thrown in.

Well done!........................................

I agree it could well be social engineering ... it creates poor attachments which leads to social isolation and anti-social behavior (less likely to breed, more easily controlled).
