Letter on Fluoride Referendum Bill HB1186 and Smart Meter Bill HB373

Here is a sample letter that you can send to the Business and Utilities Subcommittee in the House on the Fluoride Referendum Bill HB1186 and Smart Meter Bill HB373.

Dear Representative Calfee,
The Business and Utilities Subcommittee is scheduled to hear two important bills providing consumer protection, HB1186 and HB373.  Utility companies deserve stricter scrutiny than regular businesses because they are given government granted monopolies on the goods and services they provide.  Some of the utility boards aren’t elected and lack accountability as they do not face elections.  Worse, the water boards get to choose the nominees for replacement and often choose themselves.  It’s very much a closed loop system, which is why HB1186 is necessary to address a problem that customers have with their water boards.

HB1186 is not a prohibition against water fluoridation.  It simply gives the people a voice, where they have none, having unelected water boards who nominate their replacements.  It simply lets people who live in districts with water fluoridation decide if they want the practice to continue or cease.  There is no cost to the State as the referendum will take place at the next regularly scheduled election.  The democratic process is necessary for accountability because many of these boards are unresponsive to the request of their customers.

HB373 allows for electric customers to opt-out of a smart meter and have their smart meter removed if they already have one.  There are serious health and privacy concerns, and no electric customer should be required to accept a smart meter as a condition or term of service.

Both of these bills address important issues that have arisen within the utilities that governments have granted monopolies to.  These remedies are appropriate and of little to no cost to the State.

Your support for both HB1186 and HB373 are greatly appreciated.

Let freedom ring!

Bills this week

From Karen Bracken:

THIS IS IT FOLKS.  WE ARE DOWN TO THE FINAL DAY.

On Monday….We need to bombard their email and make one final push for phone calls.  If these bills die in subcommittee they are done and will never go to the House for a vote to passage.  I have made sending an email as easy as possible.  I suggest you send two emails to the subcommittee.  1 to address the 2 Fluoride bill/resolution (HB1186/HJR0130).  1 to address the Smart Meter Choice bill (HB373).   HOPE TO SEE YOU ON TUESDAY IN NASHVILLE.

The same subcommittee members will be hearing all 3 of these bills (HB1186 – Rep. DeBerry – Fluoride Referendum) (HJR0130 – Rep. Lynn – Resolution to request further study of fluoridating our water supply) and (HB373 – Rep. Womick – Smart Meter Choice)

I have attached information on Fluoride and Smart Meter for you to attach to your email.  Be sure to send your email using the BCC option.

I have also included a sample letter you can use to address the Fluoride issue.  You will be sending two separate emails to the same group list.

The Smart Meter bill does not ban Smart Meters it allows choice and choice without penalty.

10 Facts about Fluoride     Just Say No Thirty Talking Points _1_

This video of testimony to the Texas state legislature is excellent.  It is 54 minutes long but the education you will get is well worth it.  I sent this to Rep. Womick and Sen. Ketron.  I also sent it to all the members of the subcommittee that will hear this bill on Tuesday.

From Citizens Groups in Blount County:

FLUORIDATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
3311 Laws Chapel Rd.
Maryville, TN  37803
Dear  Representatives,

                                 HB 1186 by DeBerry       SB 1211 by Campfield

We are asking for your support on the subject bill currently in our Tennessee House and Senate committees.

The citizens of Blount County feel that they should have a choice when it comes to ingesting chemicals.  Hydro-fluosilicic acid, not natural fluoride, is being added to our water supply by local utility districts.  Fluoridation without Representation actually filed a court case in 2008 to request information regarding the elements that are present in this product, knowing that it contains mercury, arsenic, lead, etc.  Our lawsuit was dismissed on the basis that the utility company was not required to answer our Discovery questions.  Therefore, not only are the utility board members not elected, they have no accountability to their customers.

Customers of the utility districts are being drugged, without their permission, with a toxic waste chemical that has never been approved by the FDA.  Even a medical doctor’s creed states:  “Do no harm”.  Fluoridation has been proven to have harmful health affects for people, such kidney disease, thyroid problems, arthritis, cancers, IQ deficiencies, as well as fluorosis of the teeth.  The National Kidney foundation has pulled their support of fluoridation and the ADA has announced that baby formulas should not be mixed with fluoridated tap water.  Citizens who want fluoride added to their diet have fluoride tablets and toothpastes available; while people who do not want to ingest this poison, are forced to purchase expensive filtration systems for their homes, if they can even afford to do so.

The subject bill does not stop fluoridation.  It gives the citizens of Tennessee who live in fluoridated areas the opportunity to have a referendum of choice.  We believe that people deserve the right to determine whether or not fluoridation will cease or continue.

I would be more than happy to provide information or meet with you personally to discuss this fluoridation referendum bill.  Thank you for your consideration.

                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                                        Linda King

Great – we are all going to benefit from the roll out of Smart Meters in the UK and Ireland…….
Just like Flouride (in the water and toothpaste and other products) the amount of medical data that proves these are incredibly harmful is being completely ignored – please do your own research , see some links below. You are advised to immediately write to your utility suppliers stating that you do NOT want any Smart Meter installed (SEE SAMPLE LETTERS BELOW) and that you do not want the negative effects from units installed into homes next to yours:
Please copy and paste this mail and send it out from your own email address, we can only change this madness if we get the facts and ACT.

Propaganda video to convince customers that smart meters are safe:
Look at the information above and then work out how many consumers without access to truthful information will see this propaganda and go ahead with installation. How many times have we heard it before:
 
BSE – beef burgers and beef products are COMPLELY SAFE – mad cow disease then spreads to population
FLORIDE in Water is COMPLTELY SAFE – 100 + studies saying it is not , ONLY 2-5% of Europe has fluoride in water – HOLLAND has ‘banned fluoride’ in its constitution.

Email by Dr. Ken Monar:
Sirs, Madams, Friends:
These are some matters to consider on the “Smart Meters” technology being deployed in your communities as energy usage meters on the sides or within buildings. I’ve included several attachments (pdf) and the content of a previous email on the matter (RTF).
My personal belief is that this technology should be banned. Opt out will not necessarily help the situation as regarding details on how it is being implemented (see discussions below).
In the end, it will cost consumers more by operational reporting costs and long term in upgrades necessary to avoid rate hikes. It is UNTESTED and does not conform to engineering best practices.
My personal belief is that the requisite “mechanisms” of harm will lie in “susceptibilities” within macromolecular condensed states of DNA (and perhaps other plant and insect macromolecules or cellular and mitochondrial macromolecular aggregates directly or indirectly by effects on same and reaction rates). Modes of interactions might involve combinations of: electronic excitations, Polarization, dielectric relaxations, heat, and Dielectrophoresis. Pulses must not occur in the VLF region of the human brain operations such as diurnal rhythm.
Enclosed you’ll find a copy of a summary work of Robert O. Becker, M.D. This individual, who for all his pioneering work in elucidating the mechanisms of the piezoelectric effect in bones and in enhancement of limb regeneration should have been a candidate for the Nobel Prize, was instead ousted from his career at it’s peak. Gone are the heyday of unpoliticized research where researchers could pursue ends to the logical conclusion. His questions began with the origin of “non-union” fractures in a Veterans hospital. His accounts were also summarized in 2 books: The Body Electric and Cross Currents: the promise of Electromedicine and the perils of Electropollution. We ignore this at our peril.
You are faced with endorsing technologies whose operations and future scope you cannot yet imagine. Conservative voices are needed. In such cases, slower and more incremental progress should be the guidance.
Please share with friends.

Just past Monday, the following interview appeared on Nationally Syndicated Radio show regarding topic:

http://Archives2013.gcnlive.com/Archives2013/mar13/RadioLiberty/0304131.mp3

Which serves to illustrate my earlier point that THIS UNSTUDIED TECHNOLOGY makes even an “opt out program” a dangerous precedent.

Lousville man calls on South Blount Utility commissioners to resign

In September, the News Sentinel reported on questionable expenditures at some East Tennessee utility districts. According to South Blount’s records, the utility — which provides service to more than 14,000 customers in Blount County, Louisville and Friendsville — in recent years had racked up large restaurant tabs while attending out-of-town conferences, and at times paid for meals eaten by the spouses of district officials.

On Tuesday, Louisville resident Stan Giles read a statement to the commissioners in which he cited the News Sentinel story and complained that if the board didn’t know it was improper to pay for spouse meals, “I kindly question your ability to provide good leadership to this organization.”
