    To bad that's being phased out, have you noticed the uscans at Wally world no longer except cash? I'm sure that's just the start. Easier on the fed that way as they can finally dump that ancient technology and make any even higher margin off their funny munny.

    I don't know who pulls the strings behind the scenes but why are they developing a network of total survailance if they don't want total control. Even if that isn't the intent, if the mechanisms are there then it is increasingly possible.

    Did they even give a reason as too the reasons for doing this? Whether real or not.

    I try to avoid the tin foil hat stuff but things like this really bother me. If there is a legit reason for doing it, they shouldn't stonewall when questioned by Congress. Just answer the damn question!

    Create government jobs....

    No that wasn't an official reason, but the department is a sub of the Fed, and they're unregulated ... so ... "let's make jobs for each other" they all say in the cesspool of DC.

    That is a distinct possibility. That its not some concerted effort, just the Leviathan feeding itself as it grows.

    The "reason" is in the name. It's so the government can protect us from being screwed by the evil corporation... So they'll monitor all our electronic transactions, then let Lois Lerner decide what to do with the potential political information gathered... You know like harass people looking for medical treatment because they buy lotsa ammo and stuff...
