Brilliantly written though not just a little depressing.
And although the president now understands—or so he says—that we must begin to wean ourselves from oil and coal, we have on his watch become more deeply dependent on both.

Tommy Thompson – May Run For President

(Image used under: Creative Commons 2.0 [SRC])

Katherine Albrecht, the world's leading RFID privacy expert and co-author of the book Spychips - How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID writes:

Former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson is considering a run for president in 2008…

As head of Health of Health and Human Services, Thompson oversaw the scandal-ridden FDA when it approved the VeriChip as a medical device. Shortly after leaving his cabinet post, he joined the board of the VeriChip Corporation and wasted no time in using his clout to promote the company's glass encapsulated RFID tags.

These tags are injected into human flesh to uniquely number and identify people. He also suggested implanting military personnel with the chips to replace dog tags.

Thompson has an option on more than 150,000 shares of VeriChip stock. Right now those options aren't worth much. Security flaws and public squeamishness have hurt the company's sales, resulting in losses of millions of dollars.

Even if he remains chip-free as we hope, the American people should still be wary of him.
