Vindyak, Patrick here, and I'll address some of your points.
-"So nieve are you." Nieve means "snow" in spanish. I think the word that you are struggling to find is spelled NAIVE. .
-You say I never worked in a union shop or held a government job. I was in the AFL-CIO for ten years and also worked for the federal government for ten years.
One of the jobs I had before that was catching thieves at a very high end retailer. And the biggest thieves by far worked for the store. One stole over half million bucks worth of stuff, and a hand scanning time clock would not have stopped her. So it's not only low level government people that steal. A hand scanning time clock is not going to stop someone from clocking in, then leaving and coming back to clock out for lunch etc. I have seen that happen, and the employee( a government employee) was caught without the aid of a hand scanning time clock.
-Turnstile bars, metal detectors, hidden cameras: Shouldn't these be enough? How far do you want to go to catch someone shining shoes, making knives or tying to sneak a fender out of a GM plant? There was over 16 trillion dollars stolen from the taxpayers in the recent bailouts, much of it shipped overseas to foreign banks and people can only think about focusing the spotlight on the petty crimes of low level people.
You make some good points about employee theft and you prove yourself knowledgeable about human nature, but people that steal gasoline, bypass electricity meters and fake back injuries to go on a golf holiday can all be caught without the use of a dehumanizing hand scanner.
My main point is that these hand scanning time clocks are not about theft prevention, they're about population control. I grew up in Los Angeles and I knew a lot of people that were in Nazi Germany and Russia and had the number tatooed on their arm to prove it. That's what is coming to America, only a more high tech version of it, and way more deadly. And I'm trying to shock people awake.
