I don't know, maybe its because I'm a little slow on the uptake, or maybe I don't follow national politics enough, but I just found out about the NAIS and I just can't even believe it! I called my daughter up as soon as I found out and she said she knew, she said they have been doing it in Europe already. For anyone out there who shares my ignorance, NAIS stands for the National Animal Identification System- a supposedly "voluntary" project aimed at "keeping our food supply safe" by tagging livestock with ID chips that can be tracked by satelite. I know this sounds like something out of a George Orwell novel, but the real plan is to make it mandatory by the year 2008.
The more people that open their eyes and find out about this the better. Glad to see more people being outraged by this. He even sees it's ultimate goal.
The really creapy thing about this is that they are also wanting to put ID chips in people, too.
Make more noise, let people know, we can change this.
An ear tag never stopped a disease, but it sure seems to motivate people.
