It Must Be Something In The Water

This afternoon I find myself yet again humming that old song, "When It's Crazy Time Down South." Ahh, the American South, or "Dumbfuckistan," as I call it, the source of 90% of the insanity sweeping across the country. Where one can visit museums featuring dinosaurs wearing saddles. Where first cousins marry, and "moving upscale" is defined as a getting a bigger trailer than your neighbor's. Where people have the free time to be bused across the country for astroturf protests, but never have the opportunity to consult a dictionary or spelling guide before scrawling their signs.

So recently, the Georgia State Legislature wanted to ban the implantation of microchips into humans, because these idiots think that it's part of health care reform. Then they meet a woman who says that she already has an implanted chip....and guess who put it in, and where:

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.
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.

And you know what I think is the spookiest part? "No one laughed."   

Must be something in the water.

Perhaps it is her way of explaining the humming in her ears or the voices in her head...
