Right wing and other conspiratorial websites like News With Views and Before It’s News have been sharing bold predictions about Obamacare microchips in their headlines, their Facebook posts and their Tweets over the past year or two:
“Micro Chip Implant Coming March 23, 2013″

We’ve only just begun to receive our latest snowstorm up here in Maine, but the first few inches delight me, with the promise of feet to come. I’ll have some work to do to make my immediate environment livable, but after a winter that wasn’t last year I’m refreshed. It’s good to have [...]
