Wednesday, February 22nd was Washington’s real birthday. In honor of General George Washington, who became the first President of our brand new liberated nation, I urge you to contact your local radio stations, as well as national radio station personalities, to let them know the danger that the USDA’s National Animal Identification System (NAIS) poses to our liberties. Let them know that you want them to address the issue of why is the government stealing away our rights with programs like NAIS, PAWS , REAL ID and the Patriot Act.
Are you familiar with NAIS? Let me give you a little background. The USDA wants to register the GPS coordinates, name, address, phone, and other data on every farm, home, and other location that has even has a single animal, with a government Premise ID. For this privilege of mandatory registration, you will pay a fee of $10 or more, per year. Next, they intend to tag every single one of your animals with a RFID, or other tag. This will be mandatory. In addition to paying an annual fee and paying for tags for all of your animals, you would also be required to log, track, and report all “events,” such as the birth of an animal, death of an animal, animals leaving, or entering your property. All reports must be made within 24 hours, or you could face stiff fines. Do not expect them to keep your private information secure. In a little “Oops,” the USDA just released the social security numbers of 350,000 farmers.
