    I think not.
    What's not a joke is that animal implants were used in humans in SE Asia
    (Can't remember where - Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia?)  to track poor
    women who had birth control implants. Sorry I don't have a reference since
    I read it several years ago.
    I know this is Apr. 1st, but there was a re-authorization bill for the PATH
    program, so it does exist  I couldn't find the original authorization Bill
    for PATH but its on the HHS web search. Also they have a HMIS (Homeless
    Management Information System) see EPIC. None of this is shocking from the
    New World Orderers. www.epic.org - search homeless, HMIS, RFID
    Since the homeless may need medical care, and sometimes get state benefits,
    they need identification they don't carry around. So HHS may want to put an
    ID chip in them like a dog at the vet or the women aforementioned.

    How bout implanting RFD tags with the US Postal Service?
    It is such a pain keeping track of these "homeless."
    That way they could always get their welfare and social security checks and
    VA payments and drugs wherever they wandered in their homeless way?
    And the geheimstatspolizie... excuse me... the Homeland Security boys...
    could easily keep track of them.
    With compassion always....

    A reminder of an old posting, just as an FYI:
    But this is a UPI story, right?  If so, we should get a huge amount of
    hits on Google News on a phrase from the article, but no results for "to
    help more closely monitor and assist":
