More Information on Fingerprinting

 

 

  Here are some scenarios that are either being talked about, currently in the legislative process, or actually already exist.  We'll add to this list as we discover more.
 
 

A few US states including Colorado and California deny a state ID or driver's license to anyone who won't submit to fingerprinting.  What would your life be like if you were denied a driver's license?  Without a strong biometric privacy law, Alaska could be next.   A recent proposal by NY Senator Chuck Schumer and SC Senator Lindsey Graham would require all Americans to be fingerprinted to hold ANY job under a new Federal national workers biometric ID card.

TODAY,  in Alaska and across the nation, anyone unwilling to submit their fingerprints to foreign data-mining firm Reed Elsevier "for identification" is banned from taking the CPA and other exams.

A US passport and driver's license (even together) are said to be "inadequate for identification", even though those very same documents have to be provided to verify the individual's identity for the purpose of taking the fingerprints to begin with. 

Yes, you're right, that's very Orwellian.  Contradictory logic that makes stupid sound smart.


SAT exam administrators considered mandating children taking the SAT exam be required to provide their fingerprints, but feared parents would resist the fingerprinting of their children
