'RFID Chip Now Being Issued In Hanna, Wyoming As Part Of New "Obamacare" Plan' -- But WAIT! Not so Fast

     I don't usually blog about politics on this blog -- I save that for my blog Octopus Confessional, among others -- but this chilling news (and, most of post 9/11 news is chilling) parallels the whole shadow-government-alien-agenda scenario. Maybe I'm missing something here, after all, the mayor of Hanna, Wyoming, Ted Howell, assures us it's a good thing, as he's quoted in the article: "This is change for a better, safer, America."
This is change for a better, safer America”
This is change for a better, safer America”
“This is change for a better, safer America”
RFID Chip Now Being Issued In Hanna, Wyoming As Part Of New "Obamacare" Plan | Jane M. Agni | National Report: By Jane M. Agni
The “Obamacare” RFID chips are currently being given a test run on the proud and patriotic citizens of Hanna, Wyoming.
     A very surreal segue, that.
     The propaganda machine hasn't finished its cycle. Framing this in a it's good for you and patriotic and anyone objecting is suspect style, the propaganda piece quickly goes into the comparison with kooks mode. Pointing out objections by right wing fundie Xians, the machine has done its job. Who wants to be put in the same box as right wing Christian (or any other religion) nuts? So the "article" points out that yes, objections have been made, but those objections are made by anti-Obama, pro-terrorist Americans:
 "Over the last two weeks a special piece of legislation has been passed making it mandatory for anyone who receives welfare, or any other form of government assistance to be implanted with these new identification chips. Even select government employees and officials have been ordered to receive the new sub-dermal device, which is typically implanted in the fatty tissue of the individual’s buttock. Police officers, military, even garbage men will all be required to have the RFID chip by the end of next month or face termination from their jobs
Just when you think it can't get worse, or more surreal, or --- more fucking blatant -- we're also assured it's patriotic. Terrorists, you know:
"With this scientific advancement, the terrorists do not stand a chance -- USA will prevail."
With this scientific advancement, the terrorists do not stand a chance… USA will prevail…” - See more at:

     The propaganda machine has not finished its cycle; as strange a segue as that was, the framing of this propaganda piece pits right wing xian fundies against anyone else who is actually sane (meaning, those not of the former and objecting to the RFID chips) by ackinwoleding that "apocalyptic" churches have objected. The inference is clear: these objections come from those who are "anti-Obama" and who call the President the "anti-Christ."

     Finally, underscoring the patriotism inherent in this propaganda -- and by defintiton, anyone who objects is unpatriotic and is siding with terrorists-- the "reporter," Jane M. Agni, writes that she was happy to get herself her very own RFID chip, a "...sacrifice I've gladly made for my country's national security and I hope you will too."
     Adding insult to injury, this woman is based in Portland, Oregon, supposed home of the liberal and edgy.

     As I was reading the article, as well as writing my rant, I thought: wait just a minute. This sounds too damn crazy -- too pat, too neat, too perfect in its 1950s style. Sure enough, according to Snopes, this article is untrue. The thing is, given the way the U.S. has been behaving, in very real, scary, and tragic ways since 9/11, it's easy to believe something like this. We are in a police state, the spin has never before been spun so surreally, and things are just getting more bizarre, twisted and scary every week. While this specific story is untrue --  thank the goddesses and gods that toy with us from above --  it could almost be true. Which then calls to mind; is this hoax propaganda, in itself, propaganda?

Yep, it's a satire site. Another article reported "Christian Oklahomans Forced to Worship Rain God on License Plates."

It's not a clever site, but I liked this sequence of the comments to the RFID post:

This [the snopes link] doesn’t address the current article published about Hanna, Wyoming.

so I guess “Hanna, Montana” would have been just too obvious for you, right?
