RFID Implanted in Wyoming Students-Fiction!
RFID Implanted in Wyoming Students-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This is an alarming email that contains an article that alleges students in Wyoming are being injected with RFID chips during the launch of Obamacare. The article said that “overall public opinion of the RFID seems to be positive among the Hanna, Wyoming’s townsfolk.”
The article originated from the satire website National Report.
It is a joke and should not be taken seriously.
RFID is an acronym for Radio Frequency Identification. This micro technology have no power source and they must be read by scanners, what what the industry calls “RFID readers.” Because of this they can not read these chips at any great distances. They work by absorbing a signal from scanner a few inches away.
By adding casing containing antennas and power to the RFID you loose the tiny size but gain how much distance a scanner will work in a particular setting. An RFID microchip can be injected under the skin of a pet to help find the owner when lost. In a battery powered casing with an internal antenna you can use this technology to lock or unlock your automobile. RFIDs in larger cases with internal antennas can be used to at toll booths.
RFIDs have unique information. The tags that retail stores put on merchandise are not RFID because they indicate to the reader whether an item was paid and properly checked out before passing a scanner.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Multiple Wyoming School Districts Implant RFID Chip Technology In Students Without Parental Consent
The State Of Wyoming Have Stated Plans To Put The RFID Chip On The State’s License Plates To Show Their Pride
It had been three long months since I last visited the quiet mining town of Hanna, Wyoming while on task to cover the groundbreaking test launch of the Obamacare RFID chip. I finally decided it was time to catch up with the wonderful citizens of Carbon County and see how they have been doing with their RFID implants.
Overall public opinion of the RFID seems to be positive among the Hanna, Wyoming’s townsfolk. I spoke with Earl Gentry, a retired miner, longtime resident of Hanna, Wyoming and one of the first recipients of the RFID Chip in his town. He told me the following:
“Heck, I don’t know how I lived without one. I use the RFID Chip at the doctor’s office; I’m able to purchase food and clothing from all my favorite stores with it. I definitely believe our country would benefit from a federally mandated RFID law.”
I was pleased to hear about the project’s success which recently lead to major advancements in RFID technology. At half the size of its predecessor the latest “MINI RFID” is able to hold over 100GB of data which can be easily updated to include medical records, insurance information, drivers license number as well as criminal history and some outstanding credit debts.
“I definitely believe our country would benefit from a federally mandated RFID law.”
Wyoming recently saw several hundred elementary and middle school children being implanted with the new MINI RFID. During their annual physical checkup and vaccination last month, each child additionally received the implant between their pointing finger and thumb.
Some parents took issue with the school’s approach, claiming the schools did so without their foreknowledge or consent. Superintendent Gerald Morgan of the Carbon County school district tells National Report that most of these complaints come from families with heavily rooted religious backgrounds.
Xenophobia and superstitions are a common affliction among rural communities. Many fringe Christian sects believe Obama to be the Anti-Christ and the RFID chip the Mark of the Beast spoke about in their Book of Revelation. During the Second Coming and the arrival of the “Anti-Christ” all of humanity supposedly will be forced to accept the mark or perish. However, any who receive the brand of the Anti-Christ will be punished by the Christian God with eternal damnation.
The rest of the Wyomingites were ecstatic to welcome their town’s children into the fold. Citizens say they’ve never felt better since accepting the Obamacare RFID implant and are proud to be torch carriers for a safer and brighter future.

Janice Willowbrook, whose child goes to St. Paul middle school in Rawlins, Wyoming says she’s not bothered by what the school did. “I don’t mind that they went ahead and had my child implanted. I was going to do it anyway. If anything they saved me a stressful doctors visit.”
When asked why she thought some of the other parents were upset with the schools actions she told us “Unfortunately we still have some locals who are very old fashioned. They like to buy into all these nutty conspiracy theories and what-not. Believing everything their pastors say or the silly things they read on the internet. I hope that eventually we can all shed our fear of change and accept that this is the responsible thing to do as a country.”
I bid the peaceful town and its wonderful inhabitants farewell before heading off west into the approaching sunset. I enjoyed my time spent alone behind the wheel on those long stretches of highway illuminated only by car headlights and the occasional billboard. I drove and pondered the progress of the human race and all of the advancements we have made since our evolution from chimps. It left me feeling excited and hopeful for all of the grand new possibilities our future holds.
