    First I've heard of it.

    Even after reading the original link at the Globe I still don't understand the purpose of the bracelet.

    It's happening. See that 70s movie with Michael Douglas, Genevieve Bujold, and Richard Widmark --- "Coma". They are starting to register EVERYBODY. Next stop: "Soylent Green". Making food from people.

    Seems like a decent idea? It's sounds like they want to look at large sample sizes of individuals to intervene not individuals. If it can help prevent larger outbreaks what the heck, try it!

    Proposed bill would allow state authorities to quarantine people during pandemic

    BOSTON -- A new proposed bill designed to combat the threat of the H1N1 virus would allow the state to forcefully quarantine people in the event of a pandemic.

    Anyone who refuses to comply with the quarantine order could face jail time or a $1000 per day fine.

    The "Pandemic Response Bill" would also force health providers to vaccinate people, authorize forcible entry into private homes, and impose fines or prison sentences on anyone not complying with isolation or quarantine orders.

    Federal health officials are also warning of a possible new outbreak of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as the "swine flu."

    A topic like this has nothing to do with partisanism. To me, who it is that wants to invade my property, and strap me down at gun point, to take a gubmit paid for vaccine, is irrelevent. The senate bill passed unanimously if I read correctly. I won't take that vaccine unless I choose to.

    Maybe you're right. And if it works well for the pig virus, maybe we could use it for some other viruses that kill people.

    I have succumb to my lack of rights and choice!
    I can nor should be willing to do anything for myself!If you think this isn't about politics your crazy!!! This virus and all the panic that should ensue has everything to do with controlling your thoughts and emotions.
    But I am not willing to oppose it until 8am est. So until then where do I sign up. I gotta go to the farmers market now and do my part?
