So I was part of the audience last night, listening to a very nice and cheery woman talking about the new Smart Meters being installed all over our fair city, Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Gas and Electric is pretty much finished with the project and are wrapping things up and letting folks know what’s what in the world of electricity meters. You know. The kind that are installed on the outside of your house that the meter guy or gal reads once a month.
So it was question and answer time and someone asked if anybody objected to these new meters.
“Yes, we have a few folks who do not want them,” she replied with a smile on her face.
Then she went into a few scenarios wherein some of the complaints were about the microwave emanations (you know, the stuff that comes out of your microwave and cell phone.) They thought the microwaves would kill them with cancer. There were a couple of other complaints, which seemed pretty harmless and remote.
But then . . .THEN! Someone brought up the gubmint.
The cheery lady’s smile froze on her face and she began to say that yes, there were people who thought the Smart Meters were the secret plan by Obama to keep track of everyone and thereby gain complete control of the People of the United States of America.
This stuff is getting weirder and weirder.
Jeez. It’s not going to stop, is it.
