U.S. “See something, Say something” campaign

BTC- It’s looking like national identity and RFID have coupled up again finding another place to burrow into the German population.  It brings me sadness to see a nation who has overcome so much, coming so far from their past of fostering some of the most oppressive, fascist societies in Europe’s modern world history only to watch history repeat itself.  Germany’s RFID embedded ID cards will be available by November 1st, 2010.

After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, the people of East Germany began to recover from a psychologically and economically oppressive government.  Prior to this, both the Nazi SS and Stasi East German policies made demands for citizenship papers at every turn of citizens and travellers. It is one the most obvious symptoms a facist society in full swing.  It was tragic to find that these policies were invited by the DHS in an effort to control our open and liberty-oriented society by creating an identity mandate for Americans.  We foolishly believed we could never be “like Germany”.

Americans  engaged in the struggle for personal liberty are fighting successive attempts by DHS machinery to reinvent a plan for national identity.  However, it is important to understand how to retain and express empathy and compassion for all nations who are struggling with the very mandates which trouble us.   One time tested venue for expressing company in misery is through music.

Talib Kweli, musician and intellectual, connected with the arbitrary demand for citizenship papers and the potential for racial profiling in the State of Arizona, over SB1070 in his song Paper’s, Please!

Munich – A Saudi inventor’s proposal to implant semiconductors under the skins of visitors and remotely kill them if they misbehave will not be granted a patent in Germany, officials in Munich said Friday.

A GermanPatentOfficespokeswoman said the application was received on October 30, 2007 and published 18 months later, as required by law, in a patentsdatabase. But inventions that are unethical or a danger to the public are not be recognized.

Reporters said the document proposed that tiny semiconductors be implanted or placed by injection under the skin of people so their whereabouts could be tracked by global-positioning satellites. This could be used to prevent immigrants overstaying.

A model B of the system would contain a poison such as cyanide, which could be released by remote control to ‘eliminate’ people if they became a security risk. The document said this could be used against terrorists or criminals.

Fun with The Stasi

Ever since I discovered we had Stasi communication’s pro’s on the U.S. payroll, I needed a good laugh.

BOING, BOING has done some great recent coverage of the days of yore, glistening nostalgia for the days of oppressive East German Spying over a beer.

“Marilyn sez, “Relive the good old days of East German secret police at Zur Firma, a new bar in Berlin equipped with an interrogation table, fake security cameras, and prison cells. You can buy a beer and apply for an ID card at the theme bar.”

I guess the idea here is you go in the bar- have a good laugh, leave and then go, “WHEW! I’m really glad that is not my real life!!” Here’s to you NSA, I am pouring one for all my misguided U.S. homies watching the news and buying the fecundation that the best jobs in Amerikka are SECURITY jobs.
