It seems impossible that a for-profit company can force any customer to do anything via police enforcement.
Aren't the power and gas companies just regular companies, selling a service or product to its customers? Or are they part of government?
I know that for some reason we have little choice in service providers from area to area. But it still seems like it would just come down to a choice of letting them upgrade their equipment or having your service turned off. And then the consequences of that would sort out the situation on its own. How can someone be arrested for refusing a service?

What a bunch of fake conspiracy hoo ha! First, the power company owns the lines, as well as the meter connected to the house. They have license to access your property to read said meter and to replace said meter. We have had ours for a few years now. Our bills seem to be going down.
If this lady was refusing them access, maybe arrest was a bit extreme, but i guess it depends on how much of an ass she was being. The rest of that garbage is complete b.s. Seeing inside you home and radiation and chemtrails. Good God, what a mess of paranoia!

Genetic engineering or not, police have no right to act like this over a fecking meter, and this the local law?
I think I'd worry less about the federal government, than these local cowboys.
What genuinely concerns me about smart meters and the like technology is not the idea of change, but rather one simple fact which is impossible to get around concerning promoters of “smart” technology… If “smart” technology was actually about going “green” and saving money, why invest in pollution and spending more? Why not invest billions into renewable resources and new ones? Some argue we’ve tried that, it just doesn’t work. Or my absolute favorite argument regarding renewable resourcing not working, “What was Germany doing correct? Are they just a smaller country, and that made it more feasible?” “They’re a smaller country, and they’ve got lots of sun. Right? They’ve got a lot more sun than we do.”. Then you take a look at reality, which tells us this. Using energy from the sun is smart. Using a finite resource is dumb. Dumb meters. Or more politically correct, profit meters, because let’s face it, energy from the sun is far less profitable than a form of energy that is vastly more difficult to control, harness and a higher demand.
Is anyone ready to try the following? “It would take 375 years of direct contact with a smart meter to equal the same amount of radio frequency exposure from a daily, 15-minute cell phone call over the course of one year.”. That statement is so far beyond a comparable legitimate science. They take into account nothing. Distance, absorption, area, length of transmission etc. All of which makes me think of a response like this from Billy Madison.
