Patrick Henry

There’s something to be said for being a trusting soul–but this is carrying it way too far.

At Newark Airport, if you don’t submit to giving them your fingerprints and photo, you won’t be allowed to board a plane. And at twelve of our “Major League Baseball” (cripes, I hate that title!) stadiums, if you give them your fingerprints and a facial photo, hey, you could be in line for free food, beer, or even tickets! (http://massprivatei.blogspot.com/2018/08/mlb-and-nfl-fans-submit-their-faces-and.html)

If fish were this easy to catch, there wouldn’t be any left.

People, have you lost your minds? You don’t know who’s going to get this information, you don’t know what they’re going to do with it–all you know is free beer! Now somebody has your fingerprints, and you don’t know who it is.

Yesterday we looked at Red China’s “social responsibility score,” a hi-tech version, as it were, of the Mark of the Beast. Get 1.4 billion people on the database, track everything they do, and presto! Total control.

It seems we don’t have to go all the way to China for anything like that.

I hardly know what to say. This is millions of Esaus all at once, trading their birthright for a crummy bowl of porridge. But at least Esau knew who he was trading with! You suckers don’t even know that.

“Yeah, but I could get a free hot dog!”

You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things…

Patrick Henry would have a very low opinion of you.
