Smart meters are not only invasive, but I also consider them a blight on our freedoms. What's wrong with the meters we already have? Mine works fine just as it is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Now big government has found a way to regulate our electricity use! What's next on the bill? Are they now going to regulate what we can read, or what DVD's and/or CD's we can play or add to our collections? I'm truly sorry to sound so scathing, but these smart meters are FAR from a smart idea and the wrong choice, PERIOD! How would YOU feel if I tried to regulate YOUR life as well as your right to privacy? It MAY BE that they're easier to read and/or get info from, however, the ends they seek DO NOT justify their means! And let's never forget why we have laws in this country. Don't take the law into your own hands; it COULD end up sticking to you like fly-tape.
