...While heirloom vegetables are actually benignand frequently very tastyit seems to me that we are currently witnessing an alarming wave of another type of heirloom: diseases. I started thinking about it when I read this post from Gateway Pundit earlier today, about an outbreak of typhoid (yes typhoid) in California and Nevada. Typhoid, once the scourge of many major cities, was nearly eradicated by the advent of clean water technologies in the early part of the twentieth century. Yet typhoid is back, and its not the only heirloom disease were seeing in America of late.
Weve probably all seen the reports in the paper, on blogs, and on the nightly news of outbreaks of bedbugs in places like New York City (replete with video thatll make you think twice before climbing into bed). But its not just there. Those little suckers (ha!) are appearing all over the country...

Is there a form of typhoid spread by lice?
It would be far worse if diversity became a casualty in the war against deadly diseases. /s
Typhoid fever is actually a type of salmonella infection.
S. enterica serotype Typhi
Diseases are coming to America that we will not believe. The coming massive infections will be due to the strength brought to us by "Our Diversity."
Of course, he does not talk about the Grand-daddy of them all. With over 100 Million dead in the last twenty years after nearly total Global eradication, no heirloom disease comes close to Malaria. And the resurgence of Malaria is an absolute “own goal”. We simply choose not to control it, even though proven, safe and cost-effective means to do so are readily available.
Heh! Well put.
But sheesh, what a insane and suicidal nation we’ve become.
There was a death from whooping cough here in Washington state about a week ago.
Illegal immigrants: importing the diseases that Americans won’t.
Brilliant line !
Thank you. :D
It’s due to all the illegals. Simple as thar.
Here in San Luis Obispo County, CA we have the highest record of outbreaks of whooping cough right now....people are getting booster shots.
thanks for posting this re whooping cough in Washington —
In 2001 I was in Seattle and Tacoma for about two weeks in the context of a world music festival ( alot of people from third world nations).When I came home (to NYC) I was terribly sick with a cough that wouldn’t go away — I couldn’t eat or even drink tea — I also began to “whoop” in my cough. I went to a doctor and told him that I thought I had whooping cough — he aaid it was impossible, that it diodn’t exist. I went home and kept whooping. I was in bed for six weeks. Later I read an article about whooping cough in the NY Times and the description of the symptoms matched exactly what I had had.
