Data Goldmine: Walgreens, WalMart Offer Free Prescriptions to ObamaCare Customers
John Nolte
January 2, 2014

In what you can interpret as either an act of corporate altruism, corporate lobbying, or a mix of both, two giant retailers -- Walmart and Walgreens -- have agreed to save the Obama Administration from who knows how many horror-story anecdotes by agreeing to fill 30 days of free prescriptions for ObamaCare enrollees. The question is, though, what happens to the data and patient information these retailers collect?

When you have two of the biggest retailers in the country collecting untold amounts of personal health information from who knows how many people seeking free prescriptions, in the wake of revelations surrounding domestic NSA and Justice Department spying (on reporters!), it is not unreasonable to worry about this. We also know that a number of large corporations have apparently cooperated with the federal government's data grabs.

According to one Walgreens pharmacist Breitbart News spoke with Tuesday, in April the DEA started requiring pharmacies to ask an increased number of medical questions and show a photo ID for certain medications. There have also been reports that through ObamaCare the federal government is compiling data based on a series of new and intrusive question doctors are required to ask.

As I see it, we have been moving into fascism, i.e. communism/Marxism/statism with the illusion of private property. Ownership of private property is an illusion because the use of private property, even the pretend ownership, is heavily regulated by government for its benefit and the benefit of its allied corporate entities.

We will continue to have pretend borders, our flag, our national anthem, pretend sovereignty as we are enveloped by what is called the New World Order, i.e. global governance under one size fits all regulations promulgated by unelected bureaucrats with clip boards who know better than we do how we ought to conduct our lives.
