Re: re signature pads
Does anyone here *really* think that your everyday life could be
undetectable, *if* someone really wanted to track you???
Any use of credit cards, atm cards, checks is instantly traceable to you
and the point of sale. Medical records are now digital. Drivers
licenses are being sold by your state governments (including pictures).
Gun permits, vehicle registration, the deed for any land you own, and
the blueprints for your house are a matter of public record usually
available at The Clerk of the Count Court. Dossier's can be built
showing your spending habits. From this analysts can deduce your
lifestyle and personality type.
Think the answer is cash??? *wrong* - It is illegal for
banks/dealerships/realators to accept over $5000 without reporting it to
the IRS. If you are caught traveling in the country with over $2000
(most areas, less in Florida) it can be confiscated as "drug money"
(OBTW: they don't need a warrant!!!). Don't even think about going
overseas with over $1000 without a *real good* reason. In all of these
cases you have to *prove* that the money is not related to anything
criminal, so much for innocent until proven guilty. Not to mention that
you are also being tracked when you remove money via ATM, not to mention
that annoying $300 limit per 24hrs.
The point is forget the signature, there is already way to much data
about you floating out there. All you need is to sit down and look for
It this bothers you, write you congressman/senator (or both) and tell
them to support initiatives limiting the collection of data, the
reselling of your personal data (without your consent). In short support
initiatives for increased encryption and privacy of the common people.
