Weed of greed bears bitter fruit

We have lived in Prairie township for 47 years and love it here. We’ve older now, nearly 80 and living on Social Security and a meager pension. We’re both in poor health so we can’t travel anymore. We stay home mostly. When we do go out, we can’t venture far.

We have talked to people that have windmills near them, and they are having new health problems because of them and some are having trouble with their TV reception, radio, Internet, hearing aids, pacemakers, cell phones and so on.

I’m a hard diabetic and have to check my sugar eight times a day. If the windmills affect my glucose meter, I could die. I’m also dependent on an insulin pump to keep me alive. If the windmills affect my pump, I could die from too much or not enough insulin. I’ve seen the map where they plan to put five windmills around my home. They are numbered on the map. Everyone should see this map and look for their area to see how many they are going to get. If you don’t act now, you may not like the surprise that’s in store for you.

Why does my neighbor want to imprison us with these monsters and ruin the few years we have left and endanger our health?

What are these farmers are raising in their fields? Greed weeds. The weed of greed bears bitter fruit, and those who partake of it will suffer great hardship from other farmers who are stronger and greedier. Just remember what goes around, comes around and for every action, there is a reaction.

I must say to my neighbors in the surrounding counties: Wake up now and join the fight against the windmill farms because wherever you live. Believe me, you’re next.
