Smart Meters and Big Brother

Refuse Smart Meter

The next step to the Big Brother government to keep tabs and control the populace is the use of Smart Meters being mandated to replace analog electric meters that tracks electricity usage at your home or rental.

The analog meter requires a meter reader to come out to record electricity usage that will show up on your electric bill.

The Smart Meter is a bill of goods that sounds good because electricity usage is sent to the electric company via a Radio Frequency (RF). Gee, that should increase privacy because you will no longer having a meter reader snooping around your backyard to read your meter, right? Well it might look like that; however the reality is the Smart Meter does more than send Electricity usage. It also can relegate how much electricity you are able to use. So if there is a government law (Federal, State, County or City) that measures electric use and determines you are using too much even if you are paying for it, YOUR electricity can be scaled back even to a complete blackout for a period of time until you meet the law’s guidelines.

I don’t know about you but that drives me crazy about government intrusion on privacy and Freedom.

Check out this message from my pal NoGuff relating to Smart Meters.

NoGuff sent you a video: "Smart Meters"

I've railed against the "smart grid" and the "smart meters" in several of my mass PMs. This is a direct result of "Agenda 21." Just go read up about it and you'll see.

This is the government spying on you and determining when they will either lower your available electricity, or turn you off completely based on your usage and their determination of what your "fair share" is. You see, your "fair share" of taxes is the buzzword for today; tomorrow it will be what your "fair share" of water & power will be. Trust me.

You know it will happen. And when it does, when Obama's Elitist cadre tells their minions to start with the intimidation campaign, the power company (government) will begin RATIONING our power. They'll create this false "power shortage" (or make a real one, Obama is forcing coal plants to close and not allowing oil drilling, hmmmm....why?).

So remember this.

Thanks to my friend hawkermustang for the referral of this video.

Dear (Energy Provider) and all agents, officers, employees, contractors and interested parties,

If you intend to install a "Smart Meter" or any activity monitoring device at the above address, you and all other parties are hereby deny consent for installation and use of all such devices on the above property. Installation and use of any activity monitoring device is hereby refused and prohibited. Informed consent is legally required for installation of any surveillance device and any device that will collect and transmit private and personal data to undisclosed and unauthorized parties for undisclosed and unauthorized purposes. Authorization for sharing of personal and private information may only be given by the originator and subject of that information. That authorization is hereby denied and refused with regard to the above property and all its occupants. "Smart Meters" violate the law and cause endangerment to residents by the following factors:

1. They individually identify electrical devices inside the home and record when they are operated causing invasion of privacy.
2. They monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and domestic security.
3. They transmit wireless signals which may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and they can be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants.
4. Data about occupant's daily habits and activities are collected, recorded and stored in permanent databases which are accessed by parties not authorized or invited to know and share that private data by those whose activities were recorded.
5. Those with access to the smart meter databases can review a permanent history of household activities complete with calendar and time-of-day metrics to gain a highly invasive and detailed view of the lives of the occupants.
6. Those databases may be shared with, or fall into the hands of criminals, blackmailers, corrupt law enforcement, private hackers of wireless transmissions, power company employees, and other unidentified parties who may act against the interests of the occupants under metered surveillance.
7. "Smart Meters" are, by definition, surveillance devices which violate Federal and State wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private and personal activities and behaviors without the consent or knowledge of those people who are monitored.
8. It is possible for example, with analysis of certain "Smart Meter" data, for unauthorized and distant parties to determine medical conditions, sexual activities, and physical locations of persons within the home, vacancy patterns and personal information and habits of the occupants.
9. Your company has not adequately disclosed the particular recording and transmission capabilities of the smart meter, or the extent of the data that will be recorded, stored and shared, or the purposes to which the data will and will not be put.
10. Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency energy contamination from smart meters exceeds allowable safe and healthful limits for domestic environments as determined by the EPA and other scientific programs.

I forbid, refuse and deny consent of any installation and use of any monitoring, eavesdropping, and surveillance devices on my property, my place of residence and my place of occupancy. That applies to and includes "Smart Meters" and activity monitoring devices of any and all kinds. Any attempt to install any such device directed at me, other occupants, my property or residence will constitute trespass, stalking, wiretapping and unlawful surveillance and endangerment of health and safety, all prohibited and punishable by law through criminal and civil complaints. All persons, government agencies and private organizations responsible for installing or operating monitoring devices directed at or recording my activities, which I have not specifically authorized in writing, will be fully liable for any violations, intrusions, harm or negative consequences caused or made possible by those devices whether those negative consequences are justified by "law" or not…

This is legal notice. After this delivery the liabilities listed above may not be denied or avoided by parties named and implied in this notice. Civil Servant immunities and protections do not apply to the installation of smart meters due to the criminal violations they represent.

Notice to principal is notice to agent and notice to agent is notice to principal. All rights reserved.
