Thought for the day

"People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?" -- H. L. Mencken

The New York State Assembly is not voting on a bill in January 2022 to indefinitely detain unvaccinated individuals at the governor’s will, despite claims being made online.

Users and blogs have referred to a bill (A.416) first proposed in 2015 (here) that aimed to amend public health law “in relation to the removal of cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health” and is viewable (here).

One user said on Twitter: “New York Legislation votes Jan 5 to provide indefinite detention of unvaccinated. What happened to ‘Land of the Free’?” (here).

Others shared a screenshot of a since-updated article published on the website ‘The National Pulse,’ that claimed the New York Senate and Assembly would be voting on such a bill on Jan. 5, 2022 (here).
