i dont BELIEVE this shit...

On April 28, the Massachusetts Senate unanimously passed the most draconian law to date, S. 2028, that allows them to declare state of emergency during the H1N1 outbreak. If it's passed in the House and becomes law, it gives the governor sweeping powers, lets public health officials mandate vaccinations, and, with law enforcement and medical personnel, enter private residences and businesses without warrants, quarantine non-compliers, and impose $1,000-a-day fines and/or imprisonment for up to 30 days.

It also authorizes:

* closures and evacuations to decontaminate residences, buildings or facilities;
* the destruction of suspect materials;
* restricting or prohibiting public gatherings;
* public health authorities to use or supervise private health care facilities and requires private health personnel to provide appropriate services, including vaccinating state residents;
* "the arrest without warrant (of anyone believed to have) violated an order for isolation or quarantine...;"
* control over "ingress (and) egress" from public areas and human traffic within them;
* enforcement measures for the safe disposal of "infectious waste and human remains;"
* control over all medical supplies as well as other measures needed to respond to the emergency;
* the use of state police for enforcement;
* control over "routes of transportation and over materials and facilities including but not limited to communication devices, carriers, public utilities, fuels, food, clothing, and shelter;" and
* public health officials to "institute appropriate civil proceedings against (properties) to be destroyed in accordance with the existing laws and rules of the courts of this Commonwealth or any such rules that may be developed by the courts for use during the emergency;" acquired properties may "be disposed of by destruction as the court may direct."

The bill can be read here http://www.mass.gov/legis/bills/sena...02/st02028.htm

Mass would already have to be in a declared state of emergency before nay of that happens though.

Or did you actually read the bill?

Mass sucks and is full of assholes. Every time I go there we get some kind of hassle with people screaming on the sidewalk at 2am. Mass needs this bill since it's full of stubborn retarded inbreds. It's just strange that they would do this for swine flu and not AIDS which is rampant in the cousin lover state.

Speaking of government control, obama has declared H1N1 national emergency while no one was looking. More to come on monday. How exciting.

I am from Rhode Island and man at least some Mass laws are awesome. I mean the decriminalization of pot makes a lot of sense. Why make people go to jail for pot when you can just give them a 100 dollar parking ticket and make the state revenue instead of bankrupting the state with jail system.

Americans are still debating whether to roll up their sleeves for a swine flu shot, but companies have already figured it out: vaccines are good for business.

Drug companies have sold $1.5 billion worth of swine flu shots, in addition to the $1 billion for seasonal flu they booked earlier this year. These inoculations are part of a much wider and rapidly growing $20 billion global vaccine market.

"The vaccine market is booming," says Bruce Carlson, spokesperson at market research firm Kalorama, which publishes an annual survey of the vaccine industry. "It's an enormous growth area for pharmaceuticals at a time when other areas are not doing so well," he says, noting that the pipeline for more traditional blockbuster drugs such as Lipitor and Nexium has thinned.

As always with pandemic flus, taxpayers are footing the $1.5 billion check for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1's progress and educate the public about prevention.

Drugmakers pocket most of the revenues from flu sales, with Sanofi-Pasteur, Glaxo Smith Kline and Novartis cornering most of the market.

My attitude is fuck swine flu. Since that's one of those things that won't ever happen to me it will always be someone else's problem.
