Tagging school kids

#1
So a school in the States decides to tag its pupils, reason they know where they are, which class there are in and for that matter which toilet block, or behind which bike shed ( or car park as its USA). In my eyes this is a complete management fail and really not a necessary requirement of a well run school but that's how it is.

Some kid decides to object, fair enough, its a bit of the old big brother shite could get that, she maybe doesnt want the teachers to know where she goes for her smoke.

NO she objects because it says in the bible that a 'barcoded tag ......' Now I havent read a bible since I ran out of church crying with my short trousers round my ankles when I was about 10 years old but barcodes I thought they were a thing of the 1970's.

Do kids really need to be tagged in a standard school?
Is religion really the get out of jail free card that so many people seem to use?


Ms Hernandez refused to wear the tag because it conflicted with her religious beliefs, according to court papers. Wearing such a barcoded tag can be seen as a mark of the beast as described in Revelation 13 in the Bible,

From the article.
ID badges containing radio tags started to be introduced at the start of the 2012 school year to schools run by San Antonio's Northside Independent School District (NISD). The tracking tags gave NISD a better idea of the numbers of students attending classes each day - the daily average of which dictates how much cash it gets from state coffers.
And to think... in my day you answered 'registration' twice a day. Stoneage or what.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
Simple solution, give her kid his tag on the left hand.

Rfid everyone and everything is slightly insane.
Claiming its the mark of the beast seems perfectly reasonble response to this insanity.

To be fair, these are yank kids we are talking about. Their schools have airport style security to stop the ******* bringing in weapons, so am not surprised by this. It would probably be useful when one of them goes nuts and starts shooting/stabbing fellow students, which I gather is a regular occurrence.

Just a quick one...

Is this woman objecting on strict religous grounds (ie the Bible)?

Becuase 1 Timothy 2:11-12
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Just don't sit the little ones in the trolley at the supermarket. The till could go crazy when it goes through the checkout.
One giant pack potato chips, $3.49 - Tube of cheese in a can, $6 - 4 Family sized pizzas with all toppings, £8.99 - Instant nachos, $3.99 - one kid, $99,999.99 and there's an offer on that - buy one get one half price.

Yes, but think of the loyalty points you'll earn.

A school I know had its 6th formers scanning their fingerprints as they moved around the site to prove they were in lessons or studying in their study time. The scheme only lasted a couple of years.

LOL. I sometimes have the misfortune to have to deliver to said schools, swipecards, turnstiles and I've seen smaller doormen on the roughest of pubs. I can't get out quick enough!!
Having been to London a few times in the last 10 years and seeing some shite on TV about some of the things that go on, I am not that surprised. I was in some railway station and I think I saw one white chap amongst the throngs of people. I then had to walk from the station to meet someone and I did not feel that safe. London may be a so called multicultural city, but it is a city full of multicultural criminals.

This was a failure in marketting the product. Had they presented it as a prototype Star Trek type badge they might have got away with it...

Anyway, as we know very well from countless examples religion can be used as a universal excuse. High time this mixture of mythology and superstition was outlawed methinks.
