Your Tax Dollar at Work: The Diet Choker

Ask any Ukrainian who managed to survive Stalin’s consolidation of power — control food, control people:

The federal government helped finance the creation of a so-called “diet choker” that monitors the eating habits of the wearer.

WearSens, created by engineers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), is a necklace that can automatically detect when a person is eating or smoking, and can send alerts to a smart phone telling the user to stop.

The invention received a $148,379 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2013 to create a sensory necklace to “fill the need of automatically detecting swallows and eating patterns.”

George Orwell never imagined this level of intrusion.

Next will be a diet choker that literally chokes you if you dare consume something that our liberal overlords haven’t approved.
