Georgia Legislature Competes With The National Enquirer… And Wins

Filed in National by on April 20, 2010

Via TPM:

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.

[...]

“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.

Oh my.

    Next on the agenda: The Preservation of Precious Bodily Fluids Act.

  2. Didn’t Virginia also do this?

    LOL, this was the witness they called for their hearing? LOLOLOLOL

  3. MJ says:

    They called her as a witness because the guy with the tin foil hat was testifying on a similar bill in Texas. Elvis delivered his testimony by Skype, however.

  4. Scott P says:

    On an almost serious note, I wonder if they’ve introduced anything banning those FEMA concentration camps from Georgia? My cat told me that’s what the microchips are for.

  5. I thought that was what the census was for, Scott.

  6. Scott P says:

    They work together. The census tells them who to microchip. At least that’s what my Bachmann told me.

  7. anon says:

    If the chip can log onto Twitter and Facebook, people will line up to get it implanted.

  8. MJ says:

    Scott, those people who want to implant microchips are dicators.

  9. anon says:

    If the iPhone was just a little bit smaller it would be illegal in Georgia.
