    Not only is this a bad idea from a privacy standpoint, but it is not practical either:

    1. There are two basic types of RFID chips, Active and Passive. Active chips can be read at a distance, but require a battery. The battery will run down and will require replacement. Since it is implanted, the only practical way to change the battery is to remove the chip, in which case you may as well replace the whole thing, which will then have to be re-implanted. The logistics behind this is huge, as are the long term costs. Moreover, Active chips pose the greatest privacy and hacking risks. Passive chips must be scanned at close range, which complicates the scanning process and data update process, and adds costs to those providing this 'service'. Either way, the cost of implementing such a system will be peanuts compared to the life cycle costs, i.e., the cost of keeping the system in place, up to date, and expanded for new 'customers'.

    2. Because these chips are electromagnetic, they are subject to corruption or complete erasure by exposure to electonic fields (such as those used to demagnetize/degauss record heads), and probably x-rays and TSA full body scanners (has anyone checked this?) According to some literature, degaussing machines can erase credit card data, tape data, and disc data from as far away as 10 feet. So how hard will it be to degauss an RFID chip?

    3. It is only a matter of time, once such a program is implemented, that the geeks of the world, or at least the geeks of the USA, will becoming up with their own devices and processes to totally foul up the data on the RFID chips. It should be one heck of a lot easier than hacking into classified government computers. Once that happens, regardless of how the feds try to control it, there will so much data that is unreliable the whole system will be useless.

    4. Remember also, this is he same government that says its data bases are too useless to be used to implement voter ID programs. So ask your representatives why we should add to an already unmanageable mess.
