Identify for Retina Scan

Future Vending Machines to Require Fingerprints, Iris Scans

"For a certain demographic that is pretty cool," says company president John S. Ioannou.

I remember as a kid seeing Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, in which Captain Kirk is prompted by the ship's computer to present his eye to be scanned in order to gain access to classified data. Now you will be forced to provide your personal, private, unique biometric profiles in order to purchase a bag of Doritos, a toxic Diet Coke in a poison bottle, or a pack of full-calorie gum which somehow contains multiple artificial sweeteners meant to sterilize you and shorten your life expectancy.

Look at the photo. Do you see how the machine is designed in the same style as the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, currently the "coolest" devices out there, with a metal frame, sleek dark background to its glass, and colorful, digital icons representing the products it will vend, if only you submit to being scanned? It's name is even meant to evoke the Apple products which everyone loves. It's the new, friendly "diji-touch," friend to the masses, dispenser of products without which you cannot live.

But don't panic. Mr. Ioannou, however you pronounce that name, says that it's cool. I have news for him. A growing number of the more intelligent among us don't think it's cool. A certain demographics is developing which knows that it is not cool, but instead a part of the overall globalist plan to acclimate us to their total surveillance grid. No one beside the police or FBI will ever legally obtain my fingerprint, a scan of my irises or retinae, and they sure as heck will not be allowed to posses my naked body scanner imagery. I suggest you refuse in similar fashion.
