Govenor Ron DeSantis Jabs Floridians in the Back
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is in the news, alot, recently, as a hero standing up against the Chinese batflu covidiocy, especially in regards to shooting down ideas floating around calling for vaccine passports. The bill DeSantis recently signed into law, Senate Bill 2006 (2021) Emergency Management, does specifically make illegal any requirement calling for vaccine passports.
On the surface, DeSantis signing this bill into law seems like a great response to the covidiocy so prevalent within the United States, and a win for the citizens and voters of Florida. Unfortunately, any honors due DeSantis, such as floating the idea of DeSantis as a presidential contender in 2024, are premature, and clearly illustrate DeSantis’ unfitness to be even governor of the state of Florida. Why is this, you may ask? Because of these provisions buried deep down in Florida Senate Bill 2006 (2021) Emergency Management, which gives the Florida State Health Officer, a mere bureaucrat, these specific powers:
1097 4. Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, 1098 vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable 1099 diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and 1100 present a severe danger to public health. Individuals who are 1101 unable or unwilling to be examined, tested, vaccinated, or 1102 treated for reasons of health, religion, or conscience may be 1103 subjected to isolation or quarantine. 1104 a. Examination, testing, vaccination, or treatment may be 1105 performed by any qualified person authorized by the State Health 1106 Officer. 1107 b. If the individual poses a danger to the public health, 1108 the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation 1109 or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or 1110 quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any 1111 means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.
Note that the Florida State Health Officer is authorized to “use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.” Watch your backs, Floridians, or you may get jabbed in the back.
Pay attention, folks.
