No one could see this coming? People were asking about "New World Order" and some thing called "section 38". Although I do enjoy watching the couple from Shelby Township get all fired up, the 5 people from out of the area were crazy. Electricity is not mandated, like cell phones and other elective services the people can "opt out" of the electrical grid and have their power shut off but if you want to use the service you kind of have to use it with whatever rules the provider requires. This is the problem with the protest, electricity is a service, not a right. If Shelby Township required you to accept electricity into your house maybe I could see a way out for the couple.
