How exacly are they going to track you with this information? Unless your fingerprints are lifted of a crimescene, or you leave dna there, or you crash your car alot, nothing is going to change, they dont know what you are doing in your life unless you do one of the above things. I can see alot of benefits from this act, when the goverment has a massive database with millions upon millions of fingerprints and dna, criminals will be much more likely to be caught.. unless of course they somehow get around giving up their details.

In truth, the practical side of it doesn't matter. It won't really change things. It is the precendent that it establishes that I hate.

lol Yeah, i don't agree with this policy at all. I find it unecessary to waste bandwith on people that have no criminal record and are not terrorists. "If you haven't done anything wrong then you have nothing to fear," However this isn't completely true. This country is supposed to give you the right to privacy, yet the government keeps thinking of ways to sneak around this in the name of "national security," and i'm sick of it.

little by little, you won't be able to do anything without everyone knowing who you are, zero privacy.

Let us hope that it does not even come close to that. As Riles said, I find it unlikely that such a system would be used correctly for any extended amount of time, it is too open to abuse and would more than likely be done away with once such ultra-conservatives as Bush and his chosen officials are out of power.

Only issues I have are the DNA and the fact thousands of Govt workers will have access, IF that is true. All the rest is fine with me.

I dont care if they have my name address and phone number, they can go to the IRS and get that info.

I do object to medical records, my credit history, and DNA samples being kept.

It assumes everyone is guilty and we want a database so that when you screwup we can check DNA samples with our database.

There is also talk of wanting to require the underskin chip containing all your personal data placed unde the skin of your forearm. With that technology a satellite can track your every movement and they can know where you go, who with, who you talk to, and how long you stayed.

Too much like Big Brother for me. Add in Patriot Act 2, and the President wanting to abolish presidental term limits and we are that much closer to a Dictatorship.
