In the November, 1999 ZetaTalk, the Z's warn against Hoarding food, saying such actions are
being monitored. One way our food-buying patterns can be monitored is through these cards
that supermarkets issue - they look just like credit cards. Most of us are familiar with them.
Before we get a card, we fill out a form with personal information, including our address.
Then every time we make a purchase, we get a little discount. My discounts range anywhere
from 25 cents up to a dollar or two.
In return, with one swipe of the card, the supermarkets get an immediate, computerized tally of who is buying what. And I wouldn't be surprised if the feds thought up this idea and somehow passed it onto the large supermarket chains, just so they'd have access to these records. As the Zeta's suggest, I'd rather Grow Food than depend upon stockpiles, but if you don't want Big Brother to know what you're buying, I'd stay away from those "discount" cards.
