The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

A good commentary on the planned big brother system. I have two comments.
1. When they're willing to go to that much effort and expense tracking card purchases, it's an almost forgone conclusion that they'll do something to limit the obvious way around this idiocy- cash.
2. When you have to use your SSN or membership card or fingerprint to make any purchase, so that it can be efficiently tracked, we will have wandered into the land that all the anti-government, paranoid, Tim Mcveigh, David Koresh types have been predicting as the number-of-the-beast and a sign of the end-times. Quite a few people are going to get really goofy.
