    You do know that any overly onerous laws can and will be reviewed by our incredibly liberal judiciary?

    In Response to It has finally happened in Massachusetts. Freedom has been murdered.:


    Read the law. You may not be familiar with the specific legal meaning of the words so work on that. Change your first thought to a water bourne disease and you would find that your freedom to drink water from your tap was compromised many years ago when public health authorities were allowed to shut off your water if it might poison you. If you don't believe that germs exist then you should have died years ago. That belief died in the 1920's after the last of the civil war surgeons died.
     If you(infected person) sneeze in my face should I charge you with civil assault or felony attempted murder? The legal framework of the law would allow things to be settled (mostly)without actual law enforcement and felony charges. Remember that your right to free speech ends when I punch you(hypothetical person) in the mouth. At that point your speech cost you something, possibly teeth. Thus we craft law that enables means to separate parties who could damage each other in ways that cause legally ambiguous situations. What freedom do you assert has been restricted? Your freedom if infected to infect me? I (uninfected) assert my right to defend myself.
