Chicago Suburb Arrests Mothers
for Refusing Energy Meters

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Rebel Pundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/27/2013 4:16:59 PM

In Naperville, IL, two mothers were arrested last week for refusing to allow utility workers to install controversial smart meters on their homes. The city’s new Naperville Smart Grid Initiative requires new controversial smart meters to be installed in every home. Residents opposed to the smart meters have been fighting the initiative for over two years. Jennifer Stahl, an advocate against the smart meters initiative, told The Blaze she “was protecting” her property when she refused to allow the smart meter installer install the device. She felt “like a momma bear protecting her babies,” she recalled.

That´s a bit harsh don´t you think? It´s getting very scary in this country. The monitoring and controlling of all of your behaviors marches on.

I´m also in a Chicago suburb where these things are now "voluntary," but it´s just a matter of time. They are for gathering info on your habits, just as the Black Boxes (now required in all 2014 cars) are to monitor your driving skills and miles (for when they start taxing us by miles we drive, not gallons purchased).

#4, we will not be able to travel anywhere without THE Government knowing where we are.

This reminds me of the USSR and other totalitarian regimes, where all travel had to be approved. One couldn´t go from one town or village to the other without showing "one´s papers."

Hey! Where´s the ACLU? *crickets* ...i suspect they´ll be on the monitoring posts. Maybe they´re there already. They are as Left and despotic as the regime in power now.

Interesting, isn´t it, how those who promote themselves as so liberated from bourgeoise conventions are the most restrictive, domineering, despotic, tyrannical of all.

THEY are the ones who want to be in our homes AND bedrooms and bathrooms; and the doctor´s exam rooms, down and up the endoscopic tubes, and everywhere else. Don´t forget, they started with flush toilets and lightbulbs.

Actually, they started this all with controlling SPEECH. The political correctness machine began grinding and gnawing at Liberty in earnest with the Clintons and cohorts.

The fascistic statists will NOT tolerate home-schooling for much longer, either. They want total control over all children.

They can not and will not allow independent thought.

In a matter of a these few short years, we find ourselves spiralling down pell-mell into the totalitarian nightmarish vortex.

Ask those producing the electricity! Electricity provided to the public cost differently depending to time of day. Power providers use their lowest cost sources for their basic load. As the load increases providers must put on line higher cost/KWH sources resulting in higher net costs. When the electricity costs more for the providers they must charge more hence the meters measuring quantity and time.

Like it or not, the meter belongs to the electric co. The electricity is yours only after it leaves the meter. As it says in the article, they will install the Smart Meter, charge you extra for the manpower to read a standard meter…or disconnect you from the grid! Your choice.

They are NOT voluntary in Philadelphia.

Conservatives and libertarians have tried unsuccessfully to get the State House to stop their imposition, but few legislators understand resistance to their installation.

Local Philadelphia opposition is based on at least SIX separate and distinct factors. [not all necessarily present in each case of opposition].

1. Damage to historical homes. [past Cable companies drilled redundant and unnecessary large holes in 100-300 year old marble facades of homes]

2. Reluctance to allow utility workers into homes and basements to install the new meters.[suspicion and safety concerns re the utility the workers, as well as verification or their identification]

3. Health concerns based on scattered studies [not just anecdotal] linking the meters to a variety of health concerns, and fear that the hazards have not adequately been studied.

4. Privacy concerns re the Government knowing how individuals and households use utilities.

5. Concern that Government will be able to Control of a households use of utilities, and can turn on and off a household´s usage.

6. libertarian concerns re extension of Government into ever expanded areas of citizens lives.

You can pay extra for manual reading, get the smart meter, or have your power turned off. It is only a matter of time before your only options are getting the smart meter or having the power turned off...

But what some people are not getting is the fact that these women were ARRESTED for not allowing the meters to be put on. The power company could have turned off their power but they didn´t even have THAT choice. This is more than just wrong. This is illegal...it is false imprisonment.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas. Andrea Lynne Chisholm, 54, and Colin A.J. Chisholm III, 62, were charged in March with making $167,420 in fraudulent medical and food-stamp claims from 2005 to 2012. They were deported from the Bahamas on Monday and arrested hours later in Florida, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787. “It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico. “There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists. Lt Col Richard Slack, commanding officer of 9/12 Royal Lancers, detailed the sniper´s encounter: "The guy was wearing a vest. He was identified

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

After an international bidding war, a Westside mansion often described as a French palace has changed hands for $102 million, making it the most expensive residential sale ever recorded in Southern California. As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home´s unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
