    GA Woman To State Judiciary Committee: DoD Implanted A Microchip Inside Me

    You debate an odd bill, you hear some odd testimony. But this...

    The Georgia House Judiciary Committee took up a bill last week that would "prohibit requiring a person to be implanted with a microchip," and would make violating the ban a misdemeanor. According to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, one exchange from the hearing could have been ripped right from Dr. Strangelove.

    The Journal-Constitution reports that things started getting weird when a woman who described herself as a resident of DeKalb County told the committee: "I'm also one of the people in Georgia who has a microchip." Apparently no lawmaker took this as a warning sign, and she was allowed to continue her testimony.

    "Microchips are like little beepers," the woman told the committee. "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."

    "Ma'am, did you say you have a microchip?" state Rep. Tom Weldon (R) asked the woman.

    "Yes, I do. This microchip was put in my vaginal-rectum area," she replied.

    No one laughed. State Rep. Wendell Willard (R), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, asked her who had implanted the chip.

    "The Department of Defense," she said.

    Willard thanked the woman for her input, and the committee later approved the bill.

    The bill itself is not odd and I think it is a good precautionary measure against any form of incrementation towards the government one day requiring that citizens be chipped. Companies should be prohibited from implanting chips and I think violating that ban should be a felony not a misdemeanor.

    I could care less why the bill is being passed just as long as it is being passed. Its none of the government's damn business what I do and I do not want to give them that inch nor do I want to give private companies that inch either.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There are other concerns with the possibility of microchip implants becoming mandatory or otherwise unavoidable: privacy and liberty to name two.

    Don't freak out, I'm not suggesting that Obama wants to implant us all... just saying that taking steps to head off any future trends in that direction are not the worst thing I've heard of.

    I just have one question. Can I get mine in quiet/vibrate mode?

    I don't have a problem with this being a law at all.

    I do wonder what exactly the woman's testimony was for though? It really doesn't seem to have any relevance to the bill besides the fact that she claimed it happened. Now, if they described how they removed the microchip from her and/or it could somehow be proven as to where the chip came from and who put it there (all assuming that there actually is a chip in her), then I could see the relevance in the fact that there would be proof that someone actually has implanted people with microchips (also, assuming that there isn't some other proof that she actually volunteered for the procedure). Just having her testify, however, without actually providing proof of a microchip having been/being inside her, seems a bit dumb.
