Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free,
provided they have satisfactorily filled out forms 3584-A through
3597-Q. Dwight MacDonald 1963.

Yeah, I get your point Justice. The immigration process is way to bogged down in paper work and red tape. Although I think we all would agree that this is a necessary evil to protect us from further terrorist attacks, but perhaps there’s a better way.

I think that we should track all immigrant workers by using a chip that would be implanted just under the skin. It would be a simple and effective method to tracking these people, and should any guest worker happen to get "misplaced" or "lost," our government enforcement agencies could easily find them and make sure they are sent back home...safely.

My dog had a chip implanted so that he wouldn’t get lost. It didn't hurt, and there aren't any side effects. Easy schmeezie, and the best part is no Forms 3584-A through 3597-Q.

MadMax,

This is an interesting point of view. I agree that the system is not satisfactory as not now stands, but other issues come into play when a government mandates that physical representations of numbers are worn. It is funny, every citizen has a social security number but this is not worn, instead it is expected to be known. What you offer as a suggestionis a similar concept as knowing one's soc, but very different in its implementation and the key differentiation is the monitoring aspect of this recommendation. I think your suggestion leaves further room for discourse. Can anyone see both the positive and negative effects of this suggestion?

Beware the “mark of the beast”!

This prophecy comes from the Bible's book of Revelation: "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the Beast [the Antichrist], or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18).
"If anyone worships the Beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead, or on his hand, he himself shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God" (Revelation 14:9-10). Receiving the mark of the Beast will not be merely an economic decision, but will also signify acceptance and worship of the Satan-possessed Antichrist and allegiance to his anti-God global regime. This is what the future of chipping holds, and what most of its advocates don't realize or choose to ignore.

Will you refuse to accept the coming mark of the Beast because you belong to Jesus? The time to get ready for these events is now, and the way to get ready is by receiving Jesus as your Savior.
