This quoted paragraph is from an article posted at RFD America.  If you think for one minute there is not a full on attempt to surveille every moment of our lives; to track our every movement, every purchase, what we are doing in our homes…… need to read this.  RFD has put together a warning of all the ways SMART GRID is going to affect our lives.

Remember how they pushed the digital conversion?  Remember the lamenting of various elected officials about rural Americans  “being underserved'”  and how they had a RIGHT to the best service possible?  Turns out, the best service possible is one that will enable the surveillance of every home in the country…..all of it linked to Homeland Security.


[Apocalypse now

One of the largest components of Smart Grid is already being implemented by the USDA; it’s called the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) it requires farmers to implant a RFID tag into the body of all of their livestock–cows, pigs, goats, chickens, sheep, all livestock. The NAIS threatens to destroy small-scale family farms. If you’re not familiar with the NAIS, here are a couple of resources: Downsize DC, NAIS: Too little too late? and NAIS: Let’s do some fuzzy math. Coupled with Smart Grid, the NAIS strengthens the ability of Government officials to control rural Americans as completely as they control people in the cities.

Remember, President Obama believes implementing Smart Grid is urgent. He wants the program to expand quickly, with all of us on the thinking grid by 2011. All of us. Resistance is futile.]
