yea its an idea, those that run their business on that philosophy should have that right is all im saying who cares on their ethics just focus on your own business i believe everyone has the right to run things the way they find most effective comfortable or whatever


They have the right to run their business, but government should not be giving the authority to mandate genetics as a terms of employment. That's simply wrong.

Frankly government needs to back off. In that case, all the idiots that hire their genetically superior slaves will be run into the ground by my genetically inferior slaves because of our collective intellect and grit.

Anyone who needs to understand their employees' genetics just simply have no idea how to motivate the human heart.

Let them fall.

so ur concern is the people that would use it to the extreme but as i said most people would act in a balanced manner using every bit of information to form a conclusion

I think my major concern is that government cares about this at all.

people bring their ideas to government thats why this is a thing, its prob more concerning when there are no watchers

since this is a thing now people can debate about from hereon it'll evolve from there this branch of idealogy

This thread isn't true. You have a CHOICE where you CAN complete certain tests. It's not mandatory. It's all over the place how this was apparently misunderstood by so many people (including me).

That's not the purpose of a bill.

There was a choice before the proposed law. There's no need for a law to grant choice.

Businesses will have the authority to mandate. That's the issue. Mandate.

It may be voluntary for people, but that is not at all how businesses will use it. No DNA, No Job! Find someone who wants your inferior self.

But like I said, let them fall.

A lot of people are about to find out how genetically inferior they never knew they were if this passes.

Not at all. That's why I don't need them genetically tested!

Oooh! I like it! Not only will my workplace insurance premiums go down, I can really start moving up in the world! My family has really top-notch DNA - great health and longevity, going back five US generations.

The defectives in higher positions than me with stronger than average potential to develop diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc., better watch it! I'm gonna blood test my way right into that cushy chair and fat salary!

Sure... They've been performing at a high level for years, while I'm new to the industry, but hey, I've earned it! Just take a few drops of my blood and see for yourselves who is really the most worthy! Muhuhahaha!!

While I agree with the first part of that, I find it incumbent upon me to provide the proper thinking to anyone doing my work for me.

If I fail, it is because of me. I won't keep anyone down.

That was done to me by dozens of people who couldn't see that I was, in fact, smarter than them. I simply didn't believe in manipulating them with my knowledge of sports or whatever their interests were.

No. I won't hurt people. I won't consider anyone less than me. I'll correct, I'll call out, I'll even be mean to get my point across.

But I won't hurt them.

(Yahoo.com)-A little-noticed bill moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying a penalty of thousands of dollars, and would let employers see that genetic and other health information.

Giving employers such power is now prohibited by legislation including the 2008 genetic privacy and nondiscrimination law known as GINA. The new bill gets around that landmark law by stating explicitly that GINA and other protections do not apply when genetic tests are part of a “workplace wellness” program


www.yahoo.com...

I cant see this being a good idea, but yet, still see a line of morons lining up to go along with it.

I'd like to think this would be considered an invasion of privacy, but then again, if you don't do this, would you be allowed to have a job?



I think this sort of idea should fall into the same classification as IQ tests. You can't use them as part of a hiring process unless you can prove it's highly relevant to the job. Simply selecting the best genetics to work for you wouldn't count, but if you worked with a certain cancer causing material, and someone had the genetics to not react to that... I could see it.

So what's next... Employers declaring that they suspect you're depressed and forcing you to systematically treating it or lose your job? Madness, let's focus on productivity in a safe and secure workplace. Personal issues should remain so unless they impact the workplace, even then the individual has rights.


I think they can already do that in certain jobs.
