Problem with Smart Meters? Tell the OK Corporation Commission

From our friends at GEL (Govern Edmond Locally), in Edmond, OK:

http://www.occeweb.com/Complaints/pucomplaints2.html

The above link will take you to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission Public Utilities Complaint Form.

If you have a problem with smart meters or the way in which installers are using fraud and intimidation to induce you to accept a smart meter, you should COMPLAIN OFFICIALLY. If you have noticed any health effects since your smart meter has been installed, the Corporation Commission should surely hear about that. Health effects attested to in hearings in California are ringing in the ears, clicking noises that seem to originate inside the head (Frey Effect), heart palpitations, unstable blood pressure, anxiety and insomnia.

Keep in mind that OG&E’s aggressiveness in trying to induce their customers to accept a smart meter by force and fraud is being primarily driven by $130,000,000.00 of stimulus money. Since stimulus money was largely borrowed from the likes of Communist China and since debt is our legacy to our children, our children and grandchildren are being robbed so that OG&E can get a huge pile of money to invade our privacy and possibly negatively impact our health. Do you see a reason here to file a complaint if OG&E is your electricity provider?

OK-SAFE Meetings Re: Implementing ObamaCare in Oklahoma

Most Oklahomans (and most Americans) objected to the idea of socialized medicine as specified in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, (PPACA), aka ObamaCare.  It’s companion law was the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.  Collectively these two laws are referred to as the Affordable Care Act.

It appears that the Henry/Fallin administrations, as well as the Oklahoma legislature, have been, and currently are, engaged in implementing the provisions of ObamaCare, as evidenced by the federal grant applications and legislation, while appearing to oppose ObamaCare via SQ 756 and the national lawsuit.

There will be an open discussion/review of both the grants and the legislation paving the way for the implementation of ‘ObamaCare’ in Oklahoma at two meetings this week.
See details below.

OKC – Wednesday, March 16, 2011 – The Village Library, 10307 N. Penn Ave, The Village (OKC), Oklahoma.  Time 6:30 – 8:00 pm.

Tulsa/Broken Arrow – Saturday, March 19, 2011 – Heartland HQ Building, 1008-B N. Hickory, Broken Arrow, OK.  Time: 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

Currently, HB 2130 by Steele, is a key piece of enabling legislation dealing with the HUB board and the development of the Health Insurance Exchanges.  HB 2130 removes the Insurance Commissioner from oversight of the exchange and puts in his place Dr. Terry Cline, OK Sec. of Health and Human Services, appointed by Gov. Fallin.

This bill is being presented by freshman legislator Rep. Glen Mulready, (HD-68) who apparently agreed to carry this bill for leadership.  Leadership has not done him any favors here – HB 2130 is not a bill one would wish to be associated with in the future.

We are recommending a NO vote on HB 2130.  We also suggest to Rep. Mulready that if he is anxious for approval that he might want to get dog – politicians make lousy friends.

Psalm 118: 8,9 –It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man; It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.”
