Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.You know the old wives's tale about tinfoil in your hubcaps messing up police radar? Or how the "tinfoil hat" would prevent your brainwaves from being monitored? No way those things worked, but if you get stuck with one of these new "enhanced driver's licenses", just wrap it(completely) in aluminium foil.
The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver's licenses, or "enhanced driver's licenses."
Embedded chips such as these can be interrogated by remote sensors operated by anyone with a desire to do so. But the aluminium wrap around of the license will create a perfect Faraday Cage* and prevent the radio signal transmitted by the interrogating unit from activating the chips response, making those not-too-seriously intelligent federal agents think their unit is broken.
So there you go. An easy win to set the bastards back a bit. But expect a new federal law making such a maneuver illegal, and subject to fines, imprisonment, public humility, loss of employment and ridicule by the news media bimbos.
*A Faraday cage or Faraday shield is an enclosure formed by conducting material, or by a mesh of such material. Such an enclosure blocks out external static and electrical fields.
An external static electrical field will cause the electrical charges within the conducting material to redistribute themselves so as to cancel the field's effects in the cage's interior. This effect is used, for example, to protect electronic equipment from lightning strikes and other electrostatic discharges. It also prevents RF radiation(a transmitted signal from any source) from affecting equipment protected inside the cage, and in this case, the embedded chip.
There you go... Your very own stealth drivers license.
