Don't Chip In Me

There is an interesting report on a disturbing legislative activity in Georgia over at the Lowering the Bar blog.

Apparently, the legislature in Georgia is considering a bill to specifically make it illegal to implant a microchip into a person without their knowlege.

Given that privacy law in that state and under the U.S. Consitution would cover such activity as illegal, I think this stunt reeks of "us vs. them" manipulation by politicians interested in continuing to stir up dissent against "the Federal govermnent."

"Don't tread on me," say the Tea Partiers as they hype up the perception of an overbearing central government. In this case some in their ranks may have just changed the hype a little to, "don't chip in me."

Anyway, check it out. Pretty wild.
