Former Bush official gets a chip implanted

"President Bush's former Health and Human Services Secretary, Tommy Thompson, onetime Governor of Wisconsin, is getting an RFID implant. Why is he volunteering for the Mark of the Beast?" writes David Pescovitz. "Promotional reasons! Thompson is on the board of Applied Digital, owner of RFID vendor VeriChip..."


Thompson said people will eventually get beyond any queasy feelings about having a chip implanted.
'It will prevent babies from being picked up by the wrong people in a maternity ward and make sure people in nursing homes don't walk away,' Thompson said.
So far, about 7,000 chips for people have been sold, with about 2,000 implanted worldwide.
