Georgia’s state legislature has passed Bill SB235, which now awaits the governor’s signature, following some, er, colorful testimony, including a women claiming her coworkers torment her via a microchip in her rectum. Is this bill insane, or prescient of a scary future? From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
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.
[Former] Gov. Roy Barnes argues, if someone holds him down to insert a microchip in his head, “it should be more than a damned misdemeanor.”
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.”
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.
