Georgia To Ban Implanting Microchips In People Against Their Will

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.

Georgia TV Station Creates Panic With Spoof Documentary Claiming Russian Invasion

From Variety:

A pro-government Georgian television station sparked widespread panic in the Caucasian country when it ran a spoof documentary claiming the Russians had invaded again. The half-hour show — which aired Saturday night — brought chaos to the country after it claimed Russian troops were already in the capital Tbilisi and aired “unconfirmed reports” that pro-Western President Mikheil Saakashvili had been assassinated.

Mobile telephone networks crashed, cinemas emptied as parents called their children home and people spilled out on to the street of towns and cities across the country to seek safety. But the report on Imedi-TV — once Georgia’s leading independent station until Saakashvili took it off air following the death of its owner, opposition figure Badri Patarkatsishvili in 2008 — was nothing but a hoax, apparently aired by a pro-government station in an attempt to discredit the opposition before key municipal elections in May.

Georgia Media Production Holdings, which now owns the station, claims the broadcast was designed to show the “real threat” of how events in a fresh Russian invasion might unfold.

Georgia Senate Passes Bill Opposing Involuntary Microchips

By Sasha S. Horne on the 12.160.org blog:

ATLANTA: A bill that prohibits microchips from being involuntarily implanted in humans overwhelmingly passed the State Senate today.

The Senate bill that passed today would outlaw placing microchips under a persons skin without their consent. The bill would outlaw placing sensors, transmitters or other micro devices under a persons skin without their consent. It is sponsored by Republican State Senator Chip Pearson.

“This is simply to try to get ahead and protect under our state constitution our rights as people first,” Pearson said. “We implant cattle and dogs, and that’s fine. I just don’t think implanting someone against their will is something that should be allowed.”

Pearson said he is not aware of any microchips being involuntary implanted in people right now, so Democratic Senator Ronald Ramsey questioned the need for the bill.

“This body is being asked to pass a law on a subject that has no real or received threat at this time,” said Ramsey.
