For most of my 68 years, I couldn’t comprehend how the Nazi Holocaust could have occurred. I couldn’t understand how an entire nation such as Germany with a history of scientific, musical, and artistic excellence could turn a blind eye to the truth, including mass murder. At least, until the fascist, totalitarian Smart Meter Program was forced on America. The conniving crony capitalist utility/government partnership utilized the doublethink expression "stimulus funds" to describe the blatant raiding of our grandchildren's future tax dollars to implement utility rate gouging. Using the Smart Meter as a possible surveillance device, the power utility oligarchy will be able to punish already struggling American households for a newly invented counterfeit crime - "environmental crime". That is, you may potentially receive $1000 monthly electric bills for violating federal mandates forbidding washing and drying clothes during convenient early morning or evening hours. Somehow, being forced to do your laundry at "off-peak" intervals - say, just before midnight - is supposed to protect Mother Earth from environmental harm.
I'd like this oppressive electricity rate nightmare to first be visited on the "Gang of 535" - our U.S. Congress - for 12 months before imposing this devastation on weary taxpayers.
I am stunned by the fact that both our general populace and the SDG&E employees could go along with this disaster. However, I was told via the grapevine that SDG&E employees have been gently persuaded to discount anything people have to say in opposition to the Smart Meter. Those who do voice opposition have been labeled as a "few" illiterate, radical, stupid people.” Hello, America! I now understand how Nazi control was achieved over the national mind. It also appears that our media is in cahoots, either deliberately or by indifference, with the brainwashing program.
I almost can forgive the masses of people because they may not have read the truth about Hitler's atrocities until it was too late. Similarly, the American populace was unaware of the numerous problems related to the “Smart Meter” or the many protests through the years in opposition to the Smart Meter in Northern California - because the media didn’t cover it. The media still doesn’t investigate and write this true story today. Nor do the elected politicians, whether they be local, county, state, or federal, represent the people of the USA regarding this impending household financial disaster. Were they paid off by those who made a fortune on the non UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) - approved meters? I don’t know, but a true investigative reporter could find the truth. It is most despicable to me that in the USA in 2012 the masses of people and politicians can go along with programs that do not enhance their lives, but in fact will do the opposite.
So now, I’m writing a few words in the hope that I can waken our soon-to-be-impoverished public from their brainwashed stupor. And before you write me off as some kind of political extremist, let me tell you this - I am a life-long Republican who did NOT vote for Nixon because I knew he was corrupt, nor did I vote for either Bush because I thought they were part of the cartel that rules the world rather than the USA. I am not for Romney either. Also, I opposed the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, and the War in Afghanistan, though I did support our military. I also marched for Dr. King in 1964 pushing my white baby in a stroller, together with black marchers, as people spat on us and called me a Communist. So please, don’t ignore my words because some bully might give me a name, a degrading adjective of some sort, to control you by implying you should discount what I say.
First I want you to know that over eleven counties and 44 cities and towns in Northern California have passed ordinances that have made “Smart Meter” installations illegal within their jurisdictions. That’s a significant number of ruling agencies to me, yet this is not covered much by the media.
Second, you should know that Smart Meters can be easily hacked via their Internet connection. If you don’t believe me, please look at what the FBI has reported about this fact.
Third, you should know there is a plan to monitor all of your power usage from your washer and dryer to your computer, so that you can be charged more for using various equipment at peak (convenient) times. How fair is that? They will now control the Orwellian proles, whoops, I mean you, by telling you when you can use your equipment.
Because of my personal concerns, on May 17, 2012, I mailed a letter to the Smart Meter Project Manager at San Diego Gas & Electric regarding the SDG&E Smart Meter Opt-Out Agreement. In my letter I informed the Company about: 1) The proven 100% cyber security risk these meters are as per the FBI alert titled ”Smart Meter Hacks Likely to Spread.” 2) The warning by Richard Clarke, former counter terrorism Czar, about the industrial/electrical control "Stuxnet" computer virus and its new variances now being released. (Stuxnet is the “weaponized malware” computer worm launched in 2009 that damaged Iran’s nuclear program. Stuxnet-like viruses could corrupt our Smart Meters, potentially leaving our country devoid of reliable electricity for years.) 3) The Smart Meter was not UL approved, something that is required by any piece of electronic equipment connected to the power line in the USA. Even a cell phone charger or light bulb requires UL approval, usually a 2-year process. 4) The reported health risks verified by medical doctors national-wide 5) "Additional" problems such as accidental overbilling, home fires, privacy violations, and burnout of appliances, all of which have been reported due to sudden power surges.
In my letter I requested that SDG&E tell me if I was incorrect about any of the above five items, requesting proven data so that I can be corrected. Then I explained how I was signing the SDG&E-created "Opt-Out" agreement under severe duress, since charges will be imposed for my Opt-Out. How’s that for Naziesque control? My public utility company is not giving me a choice about something that is evil - unless I pay.
I informed SDG& E that copies of my letter would be forwarded to various politicians in the hopes that one of those people who are supposed to represent me, would do something about this major problem affecting me, all the people in California, and the entire USA.
I mailed the letter to my Congressman Brian Bilbray, Governor Jerry Brown, State Senator Mark Wyland, State Rep. Martin Garrick, Supervisor Bill Horn, my mayor, Matt Hall, Channel 10 and KUSI News. Not one responded to my concerns! This means to me they are Orwellian proles of the highest order, or, you might say, behaving as part of a fascist crony capitalist crew.
In closing, I spoke with my Mayor and two State Reps at a reception in December 2011 expressing my concerns written in this piece. Representative Garrick said, “I’m not interested.” Mark Wyland "didn’t have time." Mayor Hall patronized me and pretended to care, asking me to send detailed information. I sent the information along with a request to stop the installation of the Smart Meter in Carlsbad. My Mayor didn’t respond to me either. He’s a politician like the others. He’s part of the manipulative government/industry network. And so now, I fully understand how the Nazis took over Germany.
