A Sign Of The Times, Part Deux

In the previous entry I mentioned that the Wisconsin company 32M is microchipping its employees. To be clear, the company is primarily in the vending machine business. The RFID microchips are manufactured by another company and 32M is reselling the technology.

Who makes the RFID implants? With a little looking about it turns out that a company named “Biohax” makes the implants.
I also mentioned in my previous post that an RFID implant would be useful in a “Bernie Sanders’ Progressive Socialist Utopia“.

Take one guess where “Biohax” is located.

Sweden! The country “Feel the Bern” considers the ideal model of socialism.

The United States MAY SOON end up as some sort of a strange socialist state.  Well more than HALF OF ALL voters in the 18-24 year old age group look favorably on socialism (58% in a poll earlier this year).

But the how and when we become socialists state is a discussion for another day.

Come on, avoid the rush, get your implant!

A Sign Of The Times?

Revelation 13:16-18, New American Standard Version of the Holy Bible.  “16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

Emphasis in the above passage is mine.

The Wisconsin company “Three Square Market” or “32M” is offering to put an RFID chip into their employees’ hands. I just saw an interview with the CEO of 32M and he said it allows the employees to open doors and buy goods in the break room vending machines. The CEO claims his employees are lining up to get the chips implanted into their hands. He also said that outside workers are asking for the chips, I’m assuming to get access into the facility and to buy food in the break room. The CEO also said that a foreign country has inquired about getting the chip system for their citizens.

Now the interesting part. The CEO of 32M stated in the interview that the US Military has a “widespread” program to implant the RFID chips into members of the military. I had not heard of this program. If it’s true, this is the beginning of a terrifying future.

A little information for you folks. RFID is embedded into many items that you most likely already own. Your passport has an RFID chip in it. Your credit cards may have an RFID chip in them. Your ATM card may have and RFID chip in it. Your driver’s licence may have a chip. Your medical insurance card may have one. If you are in the military, your Common Access Card (CAC card) has one in it. If you are a runner, your shoe tag for a race has an RFID chip in it. Many company ID cards use RFID. Your keyless car key uses RFID technology.

The CEO of 32M said that the RFID chip is a great convenience for the employees. The CEO when asked, said that the RFID implant cannot be used to track a person. This is patently FALSE! The “gummint” (your government) can tell which airport you have passed through without you ever taking your passport out of your pocket. Sensors can be embedded into any doorway and you could be tracked down to a specific room in a building. If you have an implant, you cannot just leave it behind if you don’t want to be tracked. As I mentioned above, if you enter a running race, the RFID shoe tag is used to track you and log your split times around the course. You can judge for yourself, but I’m calling bovine feces that you cannot be tracked with the implant.  Why worry?  What harm could come of this?

Though not just by using RFID, but the police use your ATM and credit card transactions to track your whereabouts if they are investigating a crime.  I believe the law enforcement currently must obtain a warrant to get access to your financial records.  But just remember if you’re properly placed in government, you don’t need to obtain a warrant to get access to “protected” information.  Apparently Obama staffer Susan Rice unmasked the identity of many United States citizens’ identities just by saying she had a right to know as part of her job.  No warrant was required even though the identities were protected “under the law”.  Of course a “history” major qualifies one to their right to know protected information that normally would require a warrant.

There is another aspect that has not been discussed in any of the interviews I’ve read or watched. The RFID “key” can be stolen. Today, credit cards can be read with the right devices if you walk by an RFID reader in the possession of a “bad hombre“. The bad guy can pick your pocket without ever coming into contact with you. He could be several feet away and steal your credit card number.

Imagine if your bank account and medical records, were tied to your implant and someone stole the “key” from the implant.  But this may not be an issue in a “Bernie Sanders’ Progressive Socialist Utopia“.  This is a little off topic, but in a wealth equal socialist system there will be no need for bank accounts as the government will control all financial aspects of your life, from income, to “savings”, to education, to pensions, to medical coverage.  No need for money as everyone is equal and all of your life is managed by big government.

Perhaps it’s my own paranoia, but the less the government or anyone knows and controls in my life, the better, in my book.  Remember we have a “Stature of Liberty” NOT a “Statue of Equality”.  But I digress…

Are you ready to take the mark, in this new “progressive” world order?

It’s Just A Number

Updated 7/12/2017 with new fun facts and figures

Redistribution of wealth. That’s one of the mantras of the far far left progresissies. How is that working?

Right now, the YOUR government spends $553,400,000,000.00 (over half a trillion of YOUR tax dollar$) on Medicaid according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.  Click HERE to see the full numbers.

The population that is below the poverty level is 13.5% of the total population. There are 321,400,000 people in the US, meaning that 43,389,000 folks are living in poverty.

Medicaid is there for the poor. That means every poverty stricken person is allocated $12,754.38 every single year.  That’s $51,017.54 of FREE MONEY for a family of 4 living below the poverty line.

I have to scratch my head here. The poverty line in the sand is $12,000. So healthcare spending for every single person at or below poverty, is more per person than they earn. Huh?  Just for your edification, the median income in the United States (half of the population is above this number and half are below it) is …  wait for it … $51,939.00.  On paper, the hypothetical family of 4 could have a combined income of $24,000 and still get their $51,017.54 in Medicaid, for a combined equivalent income of OVER $75,000 !!!  With food stamps add another $7800 per family giving them and equivalent income of almost $83,000.  And here’s another fun numbers game.  If we go with “Feel the Bern” Sanders’ $15 per hour minimum wage, the “working” individuals in our hypothetical family of 4 only need to work 5 months (800 hours each, less than part time) out of the year to get their, $83,000.  That works out to almost $52 per hour for the poverty “wage” earners in the family of 4, when you total it all up.  How much do you make per hour?

Right now, the biggest stumbling block in passing healthcare reform is Medicaid EXPANSION.  The current incarnation of the bill SLOWS the rate of growth in EXPANDING Medicaid. It DOES NOT cut CURRENT levels of Medicaid,   Once again there are NO MEDICAID CUTS!

Let’s play another numbers game, for more fun and entertainment.   This is the Lonewriter HealthCare Initiative.  Again, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 70% of all Americans are covered by an employer plan, they pay for coverage themselves, or are covered by Medicare.  That leaves 30 percent who are on Medicaid or choose not to have coverage.  Now if we divide up the $553,400,000,000.00 of CURRENT MEDICAID FUNDING and give $7000 for every man, woman, and child living below poverty (The 13.5 percenters), that still leaves $4708.13 to give to every other man, woman, and child in the 30% who choose not to buy insurance (free loaders) EVERY YEAR!!!  I don’t know about you, but $28,000 of FREE MONEY EVERY YEAR for a family of 4 seems like a pretty good deal to me.  Heck, $18,833 for the family of 4 who are free loaders, is not a shabby deal.  That means, using the Lonewriter HCI allocation, 100% of Americans are covered, under my stupid plan.

‘Splain to me again, why we need to expand Medicaid?

Looks to me as if wealth redistribution is alive and well. I wish someone would give me $12,000, or $7000, or even $4700 to pay for my useless Obummercare medical insurance.

And who pays for the GIANT giveaway?  You do, if you have a job!  Take from the working man and give to … well you understand.  It’s the progressive thing to do.

Feel better?

Update 7/14/2017 – Just to be clear, the lower income people never get that money that is “spent” on Medicaid.  In point of fact, I have no idea where the money actually ends up.  I suspect most of it ends up in the pockets of those who handle it, in all the layers of government.  There is plenty of money to go around, but it vaporizes before it gets to those in need.  Congress should be investigating where all this money goes, rather than saying “Russia, Russia, Russia” all day long.  As Shakespeare wrote, describing corruption, in his play Hamlet, “Something is rotten in the State of Denmark“.  Oh wait, Denmark is a Bernie Sander’s Utopian socialist country.  Nothing could be rotten there.
