Comments on DNA Fingerprint Database For Workers Gattaca-Style Proposed
NYC mayor Bloomberg proposes a compulsory national DNA database for workers - just like in Gattaca. (Read the complete story)

"In Gattica, the same database used to check employees at the beginning of the film is used by police officers at a traffic stop to search for fugitives by the end of the movie. Everyone driving through that stop was required to give a cheek swab DNA sample.

"About the story "National Worker DNA Fingerprint Database Proposed" this would be the mark of the beast. This isn't a bible leason, but the mark of the beast is not 666 like the movies say, it is a mark or other identification that you must have to work, buy goods or receive services from the others. ISN'T THAT WHAT IS BEING SAID HERE, you can not work unless you are on the data base with this identification. thanks"

"This is a terrible step for mankind. Just another ploy by trying to use "The good for People" to difuse rejection of a chip that could one day be used to control every movment and privicy of citizens. 666 is on the horizan people."
