Opposition to Smart Meters Leads to Tulsa Hearing – Thursday 10/31/13

OK-SAFE, Inc. –Oklahoma Smart Meters and the Constitution

Tulsa County – A hearing on concerns associated with the forced use of smart meters in Oklahoma will be conducted in Tulsa County Court House on Thursday, October 31, 2013.

Smart MeterIn additional to the Constitutional question on the infringement of rights, Owasso resident Joe Exposito has serious concerns about the HEALTH/SAFETY/PRIVACY issues associated with the controversial meters.  

During the spring/summer of 2013 this Tulsa County resident obtained a permit from Tulsa County to replace his new Smart Meter with a standard analog electric meter.  Returning to the traditional style electric meter was necessary to counteract the numerous negative health effects Esposito began experiencing after the new Smart had been installed on his home.

Even though properly permitted to do so, PSO responded to the change in meters by turning off power to the home for 66 days, during the hottest days of the summer.

The resident’s attorneys negotiated with PSO, working out a compromise that restored power to the home for a few months (by by-passing the meter and averaging the utility bill).  However, a more permanent solution could not be reached.  

PSO is again threatening to turn off power to Esposito’s home, due to his continued refusal to accept a Smart Meter on his home.

The resident’s Constitutional concerns will be heard at 1:30 pm in the District Court of Tulsa County on Thursday October 31, 2013 by Judge Rebecca Nightingale.  The Tulsa County Court House is located at 500 S. Denver, in Tulsa, OK.

Federal Exchange Blues – What Went Wrong with HealthCare.gov

OK-SAFE, Inc. – As predicited, the Un-Affordable Care Act (“Obama Care”) insurance exchange is a mess.

The Washington Post has a created a graphic illustrating the steps a visitor must take using HealthCare.gov.   This is the website portal for the Federally-facilited Marketplace (or FFM). Marketplace was deemed less controversial than “exchange”, which became toxic due to states’ opposition to Obama Care.

What Went Wrong With HealthCare.gov

HealthCare.gov, built by 55 contractors, is one of the most complex pieces of software ever created for the federal government. It communicates in real time with at least 112 different computer systems across the country. In the first 10 days, it received 14.6 million unique visits, according to the Obama administration.

A look at the consumer’s route through the HealthCare.gov website and the potential failure points.

One thing that has become evident: UnitedHealthcare (UnitedHealth Group) has it’s fingers in a lot of Affordable Care Act pies – from policy making to health insurance products to the federal exchange IT systems (QSSI).

Computer Security Expert: Obamacare a Hacker’s Dream

Computer Security Expert: Obamacare a Hacker’s Dream

Oct. 3, 2013, by Greg Richter

Saying “somebody made a grave error,” McAfee Antivirus founder John McAfee says millions of Americans could have their identities stolen as people sign up for Obamacare.

Appearing on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Wednesday, the eccentric tech magnate warned that anyone can put up a fake Obamacare web page and claim to be a broker for the system. There is no central government-operated website to point people to legitimate brokers.

“Instead, any hacker can put a website up, make it look extremely competitive, and because of the nature of the system, this is healthcare after all, they can ask you the most intimate questions, and you’re freely going to answer them,” McAfee said. An unsuspecting user might give up his Social Security number, date of birth or share any mental health issues, he said.

Though he announced this past weekend development of software that can hide users from the NSA’s prying eyes, McAfee said the hacker issue isn’t a problem software can solve.
