The Implantable Microchip Smackdown
The Georgia Senate is ahead of the curve on this one.
About a month ago I posted some thoughts on the VeriChip implantable microchip for humans. You can read the post here. It stirred up a lot of conversation and the chip in itself has received a lot of feedback from folks around the country.
Well, some lawmakers are paying attention.
Last Thursday, the Georgia Senate proactively passed a bill banning the state’s government from requiring its citizens to have a microchip implanted in them should the time ever come. The bill stated that the practice of implantation without consent would be considered assault and battery, a misdemeanor. Interesting. You can read the whole, yet short, AP article here.
Good for Georgia. That’s one state looking ahead and protecting its citizens and their freedoms. Let’s hope others follow their example.
By the way, here in PA we’re looking for more snow today 6-18 inches, depending on where you live. Time to grease up the old shovel again . . .
