We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Really...If you have no symptoms, why would anyone want to be tested? This is a test that can only be used against you. Will Quest transmit your name and SSAN to your local health department or the police?
most likely, some of the testing companies are saving your blood samples, and creating databases of DNA fingerprints. Does anybody read the fine print on the release forms when you go to get a blood draw?
Massive Pervasive Surveillance, everywhere you go.
Except in NY and a few other states, where the all powerful all knowing government has decreed that citizens are unable to monitor their own health correctly, and all blood tests, all lab tests related to health, must be ordered by a doctor, and the results delivered to the doctor, who will then explain the results to the hapless patient.
It is unlawful for me to monitor my own health in NY.
