Georgia Woman Claims DoD Implanted Microchip in Her Rectum

Delusions, the Legislature and an implanted microchip | Political Insider

Delusions, the Legislature and an implanted microchip
4:02 pm April 19, 2010, by Jim Galloway

We often say that insanity reigns at the state Capitol.

But when we do, we do not literally accuse the people inside of letting their grip on reality slip. We simply mean that our ability to fathom their motives, or their ability to express them, has fallen short.

Referring to a politician as delusional is simply entertaining hyperbole. But it is something that becomes much less funny when a truly tortured soul bears her torment.

Last Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee entertained SB 235, the bill sponsored by Sen. Chip Pearson (R-Dawsonville) to prohibit the involuntary implantation of microchips in human beings.

In Gov. Roy Barnes’ stump speech, the bill has become a routine example of the Republican tendency to attack problems that don’t exist, and ignore the ones that do. Besides, Barnes argues, if someone holds him down to insert a microchip in his head, “it should be more than a damned misdemeanor.”

Three states have instituted bans, and others have considered the legislation. In Virginia, a bill supporter declared microchips to be the “666″ mark of the beast referred to in the Book of Revelation.

Pearson has said his motivation isn’t biblical or religious – that he is simply working in advance of technology’s next assault on personal privacy. Not unlike limiting the uses of DNA testing by health insurance companies, he argues.

At the House hearing, state Rep. Ed Setzler (R-Kennesaw), who is shouldering the legislation in the House, spoke earnestly for better than a half hour on microchips as a literal invasion of privacy.

He was followed by a hefty woman who described herself as a resident of DeKalb County. “I’m also one of the people in Georgia who has a microchip,” the woman said. Slowly, she began to lead the assembled lawmakers down a path they didn’t want to take.

Microchips, the woman began, “infringe on issues that are fundamental to our very existence. Our rights to privacy, our rights to bodily integrity, the right to say no to foreign objects being put in our body.”

She spoke of the “right to work without being tortured by co-workers who are activating these microchips by using their cell phones and other electronic devices.”

She continued. “Microchips are like little beepers. Just imagine, if you will, having a beeper in your rectum or genital area, the most sensitive area of your body. And your beeper numbers displayed on billboards throughout the city. All done without your permission,” she said.

It was not funny, and no one laughed.

“Ma’am, did you say you have a microchip?” asked state Rep. Tom Weldon (R-Ringgold).

“Yes, I do. This microchip was put in my v@ginal-rectum area,” she replied. Setzler, the sponsoring lawmaker, sat next to the witness – his head bowed.

“You’re saying this was involuntary?” Weldon continued.

The woman said she had been pushing a court case through the system for the last eight years to have the device removed.

Wendell Willard (R-Atlanta), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, picked up the questioning.

“Who implanted this in you?” he asked.

“Researchers with the federal government,” she said.

“And who in the federal government implanted it?” Willard asked.

“The Department of Defense.”

“Thank you, ma’am.”

The woman was allowed to go about her business, and the House Judiciary Committee approved passage of SB 235.

The DoD still needs that information. She must be allowed to go about her business.
World peace hangs in the balance!

This claim is made more often than you think. I was in court with a woman a few years ago who filed a suit against the last two presidents, their CIA directors, Colin Powell and a few other officials alleging they planted a chip in her abdomen when she went in for an appendectomy. We don't have a real good way to deal with the mentally ill.

Wow.

If it's anti-government paranoia, the Georgia State Legislature loves it, it just goes to show.

Apart from exploiting the mentally-ill for said political purposes, I don't actually see any *harm* in this one: it's not like it isn't *possible* to implant RFID tags in people these days, ...pets get them pretty routinely.

It actually is a pretty common delusion: actually, shamanic healers in various cultures have long used the same kind of thing in reverse, amid all the spiritual stuff, actually performing an 'extraction' of a foreign body representing an illness of one kind or another: it's a powerful use of the placebo effect.

The modern imagination that there's an intruding *technological* device of some kind responsible for, say, the symptoms of schizophrenia is the same sort of thing the other way around, obviously common to alien abductees and other people who've had, well, unusual experiences.

I've wondered sometimes if going through the whole medical ritual in the guise of 'extracting' these things would have similar effects. There's an interesting bunch of research (namely, pretty much all the double-blind research being done) that actually suggests that the 'placebo effect' has actually been getting stronger, in recent decades.

My question.....who was that masked lady....from Georgia? It had such a familiar ring to it......but I just couldn't quite place it.....

Seriously, many, many years ago I worked as a civilian for a large Police Dept, and one of the first things I learned was about "Signal 13's"...demented people. At that time there was a file full of them and the stories were hilarious, yet very real to those constantly calling in their imagined govt. persecution. The known offenders represented about 5% of the general population, so what the real % was is hard to say...but there was, and is no shortage of them. Today you don't have to wait for them to call in, they are much easier to spot...we all know them as "Tea Baggers".
Regards!
