There go the last thin shreds of medical privacy

Is is ominous that these two stories came out within days of each other?

Pills containing tracking chips are now being tested on real people. (H/T Wendy)

The fedgov is creating a “biosurveillance” system to gain near real-time access to our medical records. In the name of “national security,” of course.

And is it even more ominous that these plans are moving ahead just as the fedgov consolidates its control over the U.S. entire U.S. medical system?

    Shortly after Obamacare was passed Henry Mark Holzer, who was Ayn Rand’s attorney, put out a scathing article attacking it at his blog. He referenced We The Living in particular drawing parallels with Soviet Medicine. As this piece of totalitarian s…t is being implemented, it puts all of us who value freedom in the position of just saying no. I believe that down the road the various government health bureaucracies, the VA, Medicare, Medicaid, will be rolled into it. I hate to sound pessimistic, but the vision of Kira trying to escape comes to mind.

    None of this is surprising.

    Apart from the general ‘paranoia’ of believing that government wants to collect a database on us all, it has been my belief for many years (since the 80s) that this is where we are headed… from Medicare and Medicaid, DRGs, HIPPA, electronic medical records, electronically-managed drugs (from drug companies to pharmacies to medicine carts on hospital floors) and smart pills (I read about those last week), skin-implanted RFID ― and now through the Affordable Care Act and DSM (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders from American Psychiatric Association)…. all have been designed to lead to biosurveillance. I fully expect that even simple outpatient procedures such as Lab and Xray testing will at some point become incorporated into the RFID system as well. We will not be able to get through a hospital or MD office door without a prior implant.

    There is no such thing as Science Fiction today ― it is all Science Fact. And it is coming down on us all in the name of medicine. “RebelFire”, here we come. Hippocrates would turn over in his grave!

    Old Printer ― “No” should have been said years ago. Doctors, hospitals, medical schools, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, midwives, private test and therapy offices (such as Lab, Xray, MRI, PT, etc) should have rebelled, complained, and refused to buy into the “guaranteed” (they thought) payments and perks they were promised. Too late now ― unless Congress, the S.C. and the American people want to grow a spine.

    America is being dismantled ― slowly at first, now rapidly ― before our eyes, and no one can or will do anything about it.

    I’ve been saying for years that people need to find ways to take care of their own health and wellness, eliminate drugs/pills of any kind as much as possible, and do as much as they can to find the underground practitioners still willing to treat people as people. Good doctors and other health care professionals are “shrugging” and finding other ways to go about their business.

    Here is just one example:

    This is all part of a plan to control people. All this over the top techy bullcrap is part and parcel of something much larger. For example, I just read where GM is planning to make cars that drive themselves. Yeah, right….couple that with surveilance tech and now what happens if you wish to go somewhere where the damm gov’t doesn’t want you to go??? Not to mention one’s privacy re pharmaceutical research and marketing. Simply put, you control a country’s money you control the country, you control people’s food you control the people. You control their health and you control their lives. Forget the thing with Russian communisim….this is nothing less than George Orwell’s 1984 come to life. Why??? Well….how about this “Never let a crisis go to waste”? So here we have a gov’t that if nothing else will literally create one….all in the name of “good health”. Yeah right….in a pig’s eye. And how come we never, or at least i never ever got an email or phone call from any of my congress men regarding inroads such as this????? I’ll tell you why….they are too damm busy trying to stay in office and get votes than being the representatives of those who elected them! A few years ago I was watching a documentary on ther medical profession. On it there was a physician who said “It used to be that the medical profession was a true profession, now it is just a business.” That should pretty much explain how far corrupness has infiltrated each of our lives. Personally, I have not seen a doctor in over 25 years….and I’m sure as hell are not going to start seeine one now, I don’t give a damm what happens! I’m seventy five years old and in that time I have only met perhaps three doctors that knew what the hell they were doing. Today, IF I had to see a doctor for advice or treatment I would unscrew his head and dip it out.

    This has nothing to do with medical records, but here is something else for the parents rented a car this week to go to Denver. there was no key
    to use to start it and there was a bright red button in it that said panic button.
    I asked my daughter if it was what we call a commie car?? I am not sure if the
    commie car is out yet, but it will be in the very near future.They will have some
    thing in the car that if you don’t stop for the police, the police can push a button in there own car and stop you dead in your tracks.I am not sure when the commie car will be out, but it will be in the very near future

    All this Fed Gov access to medical records is to give them reasons to deny firearms to more and more people.

    I wonder how well those tracker chips withstand the microwaves around an arc welder or heavy switch gear? One of the many reasons I don’t wear contact lenses is because the microwaves around a welder can boil the film of water between the lenses and eyes.

    Being near a welder would be a very good excuse for a chip being fried – even if the real reason was very different (quick blast from a magnetron from a microwave oven or a high frequency magnetic field).

    also with car electronics – there’s a growing field of open source or hacked operating systems for things like smart phones and other intelligent devices. I’m guessing that in a few years, plenty of nerdy teenagers will be able to hack, bypass or otherwise corrupt all sorts of tracking and police state devices, on cars and else where.

    If you go to a doctor who does not take insurance, then you can avoid the tracking. The DHHS conceded in a lawsuit that HIPAA does not have jurisdiction over such doctors. For details, see The Surgery Center of Oklahoma also is not under HIPAA’s jurisdiction, and your information is confidential from the government when you go there.

    They installed TSA in airports, I stopped flying. They stick their noses more and more into medical care, I stop going to conventional providers. You don’t have to put up with this crap.

    Ever read Ira Levins’ “This Perfect Day”? That’s what they are shooting for. Don’t cooperate.
