Are we all getting chipped in 2013?

Post by LunarRaptor »

I keep hearing buzz about ObamaCare forcing everyone to get chipped in March 2013. I think it's a hoax, but does anyone know something I don't?

Let's think about this practically.

Does it seem like the government could operate efficiently enough to get a chip into everyone in six months? No. Could they keep the order of 300 million microchips a secret? Probably not. Was this ever a talking point in legal decisions about the healthcare law? No.

In other words, we'd need unified government that actually gets along in order for this to happen.

Isn't snopes Democratically owned, though? Are they really reliable in this case?

That is very good to know. Sorry if I come across as clueless. In this vast sea called the internet, I'm not always sure where to get accurate information.

Is there also a Snopes article about factcheck.org's ownership?

I didn't find an article about FactCheck.org's ownership, but according to the citation at Wikipedia, it's an apolitical website.

Yes. But, it doesn't have to do with healthcare. We're all getting V-Chipped. It was the only way to control the Internet.

V-Chipped? But those don't go in people. So our computers are getting V-Chipped next?

What if my grandma doesn't have a computer? Is there another source of information I can turn to in these uncertain times?

Lunar_Raptor, it was a joke. A bad one but still a joke.

I chipped myself in preparation for the coming Great Dorito/Pringle War.

Pretty sure you can read about it on Snopes.

I'm assuming that Tostitos will be an ally to Doritos, right?

I can only hope that the chips in the chips will be chipped, and that those chips will also be chipped, and those chips...

Oh, I see.

You can take my freedom, but you can never take my Pringles! Especially not the cheddar kind...damn it, I made my own mouth water thinking about those things.
