"We would require all U.S. citzens and legal immigrants who want jobs to obtain a high-tech, fraud proof Social Security card. Each card's unique biometric identifier would be stored only on the card; no government database would house everyone's information." - Senators Lindsey Graham and Chuck Schumer
BTC- I hope someone will tell these Senators there was already a billion dollar effort to create a national to international FBI database to house the most comprehensive biometric catalogue in the United States. It is 2 football fields long and the public is not allowed to know where it is. How's that for "transparency"? It's been around since 2007.
Unfortunately, the term "transparency" is being twisted around against the American people not to mean "government accountability" but somehow to mean a super institutionalized state. In this type of state the only rights of the nation are the institutional rights and permissions granted by that state. Everyone is exactly equal: prisoners, immigrants, workers and government workers. This is the piece where the biometric worker ID card fits.
[Was this your idea of freedom, America?]
It's part of the Always On Surveillance Society and it might make you wonder if the 2010 Census is just a dog and pony show. It's globalized policy; which makes it more important than ever that you guard your private information and do everything you can to jamm up any assumptive networks using your 4th Amendment.Unfortunately, fascism is commonly defined as Statist power as corporations rule the government, which legislates only for them and seeks only their interests.
