The quality of the debate on this page is fantastic, a treasure trove of pretty much all the categories of smart meteringn evil and those that fight the good fight against it – except perhaps the Fatcat Profit angle.
It will take you ages to read through, but as you scroll down you keep hitting new gems of lunacy followed by very sharp rebukes. From my records, they’re only getting 38,000 meters.
Sweet – here are just a couple of nuggets:
- So,what CLF&P & Comrade Leader Barack Hussein Obama did not tell you about these new smart meters,that each one has a hidden spy camera and can eavesdrop on every word you utter in the privacy of your own home as well
- This is yet another example of the massive conspiracy that has taken control of our government. First they used HAARP, chemtrails, and fluoride to control our minds. Now Obama and the Illuminati can shut off the Tea Party leadership’s electricity at will. This is a declaration of war against heterosexual Christian Americans who believe in traditional values.
- Mr Evil says – I don’t know how toothpaste is the equivalent of mind control, but chemtrails are apparently invisible flights over our heads dispersing drugs into the air to keep us all calm. HAARP appears to be some Bond Villain type weapon that uses soundwaves to cause natural disasters. Genius. Evil Genius.
- Unlike this individual…
- Thats the differance between greenies and common since people in Wyoming we dont beleive in Global warming. California back door Global control dont fly here either or there laws. G.E. can take their chip appliances, and let Obama who they heavily support keep them, and U.N. can all think we dont know who is in bed with who, but we do know and we aim to stop you. If you put stuff to a vote librals you loose every time. Greenie #1 #2 # 3, there going to be a new law proposed next legistlator session, Making it illegal to moniter electricity going to your home in Wyoming. You can have the smart meters but its only going for outage reporting its uses will stop at the pole. They will be alowed at the pole, anything else is a invation of privatcy and property. Smart Meters are a tool to let fedral Gov.& U.N. control lives, very unconstutional and against the black letter of the law!!!!
- Finally, this guy might be taking the piss
- due to my “smart meter” i now suffer from Erectile Dysfunction. My dog just walks in circles, AND teh zombies who are attracted to the smart meters are attacking my house. ZOMG
Another emerging trend from the coverage in California – if you don’t feel well, blame something – or more specifically, blame a smart meter. “EDP” here doesn’t seem to realise that sleep is a privelege of the young:
I for the past 2 weeks have not been sleeping well and waking up every night! I have documented emails in that I have written in the middle of the night to my older friends asking – as we get older are others finding that they cannot sleep well anymore. I have been alalizing my lifestyle trying to figure out what and why a cannot sleep. I have even taken aspirin in the mid of night when I wake from a low level headache? Then today I hear a news cast that the Smart Meters maybe causing sleeping problems for people. Holly Smokes I now realize that the Smart Meeter was installed at the time all this started. My head in my bed is 12 feet away from the SM and my kids bunk bed is right on the wall with the SM on the outside wall with only 8 inches of separation!
What do I do? Is this the cause? It fits the time frame that all this started to happen!!!

These so called smart Meter Reader are remote controlled. These meter will be used to ROB all of you! They will remotely manipulate the readings of energy usage to a higher amount than the actual amount to ROB and scam all of you!
Refuse these so called smart meter readers, it’s another tricks and methods to vacuum suck lots of $$$$ out of all of you! When you have them remotely controlling your meter, you’ve just become their $$$$$ milking livestocks!!!

From a story covering the Georgia legislature and RFID devices: – comment from a man calling himself DannyX, who might be taking the piss a bit
Ridiculous claim? Hardly.
The genital microchip the poor lady has implanted in her is just part of the story. What most people don’t realize is that the implanted microchip gathers then sends the information to secret government offices through the new Georgia Power ‘Smart Meter.’ A small microchip needs help to transmit it’s signal, the new Smart Meter is the perfect cover.
Beware! If you are watching Fox News, you are put on the new government crazy list. The microchip and Smart Meter can easily report that you watch NASCAR. They know what kind of porn you watch.
Of course watch what you are typing out on the Internets. When typing anti Obama rhetoric beware that ACORN is secretly keeping track.
It’s time for the Tea Party to get involved. BAN the implanting of the Smart Meter onto the sides of our houses.

Smart meters!!? Only if you are the one collecting! Big brother in the worst possible way. The government never could manage anything worth a darn. That is why we saw several heaads of Hydro One roll, gathering money by the ton on the way out the door, and so they looked for a way to deceive the people who always get to pay the bills! SMART METERS! Bill when people actually need the power tow to three time the normal, and reduce the rate while normal people are sound asleep, and blame them for higher bills, because they arn’t doing what government want! Reversing their lives, and woing laundry at midnight! Ads that tell you you SAVE money with the smart meters are so so deceifull that that can be the only goal! decieve! Why not just steal?

we should go to the Wakefield blog and pick a day “when the weather warms up”
stoke up the old barbie, make our cold drinks up ahead of time, keep on ice…
keep the fridge, t.v. on a gas generator …turn off hydro at the panel box for 48 hours…and then report back on the family and neighbourly fun – if we get good at it – we could pull it together every few weeks…if you have hydro stocks sell now, when they plummet, buy back…I’m just a kid, but I’m worried I have no trees in my yard to burn to keep warm, I may have to sacrifice my computer and my mom’s furniture is mostly plastic. A friend just told to also get a ‘pee bucket’ in case your
well runs on hydro…

From SDG&E Article
LMFAO! “The smart meters got confused!” Is this just another prelude to Sempra Energy et al to screwing the public with faked power-grid failures and brown-outs in order to raise rates? Charge us more money for “smart meters” that get “confused”? How about getting to the truth about who’s really confused- the customers!
From comments on Oncor coverage, from ‘SmartGirl’ – looks plausible…for a while
Here is how to test the meter by using 10 new-(regular old fashioned) 100 watt light bulbs: Turn off and unplug everything in your home, including refrigerator. Turn the breaker off to the hot water heater (at your own risk), if it’s part of your electric bill. Ideally- turn most electricity breakers off. In rooms where there’s still an electric current- plug in 10 new light bulbs of 100 watts each. This should be the only thing that is pulling electricity in your home now.
Now go outside and watch for the digital meter to move to a new kWh. Write down the time (Time A). Get a book and drink and sit and watch your meter. Write down the time when the meter moves to the NEXT kWh. If it’s less than 1 hour after Time A, consider calling the Press (TV news) to document the discrepancy.
