The purpose of the border surge is to infect charter American citizens with as many diseases as possible to eliminate them as soon as possible.

This reminds me of the AIDs crisis of the 1980s when so much medical info was being suppressed.

How many of these cases are illegals or people renting out their garage and spare bedrooms to illegals.

Just wait ‘til the SHTF from the hoardes of disease-ridden yoots who are being intentionally dispersed out and “hidden” in unsuspecting communities in flyover country. Just a hunch....the original TB carrier in this school is an uninvited border crasher.

I had TB in my Twenties. Not fun! I was locked into a TB ward for 9 months. Lost everything! Then they finally figured out mine was not communicable, and that I’d probably contracted it whilst gardening! This new strain is much, much worse!

Grant Union was a ghetto high school back when I was growing up out there. Of course, my own high school in south Sac has turned into one, too.

There’s a Measles outbreak in Seattle and in a Tacoma hospital. It’s been years since I’ve heard of anyone getting that. Must be all those new illegals coming in.

““The nurse told me she became especially alarmed because their files indicated the children had been transported to Lackland on domestic charter buses and airplanes””
Yea doctors are saying these disease riddled INVADERS are being placed UNCHECKED on airplanes and busses all over the country.

2 summers ago I vacationed on cape cod and came back with some heinous skin problem, the two dermatogists I saw were clueless, one said I had scabies.
Been scrubbing with Sulfur soap ,taking ivermectin, rubbing permetherin all over me, tea tree oil, Borax, any home remedy I can find. last doc gave me a large prescription of fungal shampoo that I put all over my body, seems to be helping.
This came about less than a week after a motel stay.
It’s a frigging nightmare and I am seriously pissed off at the admin, these illegal INVADERS and our clueless doctors.

Time to begin disinfecting all transport vehicles which have carried illegal aliens.

Remember the old images of that being done?

“Contagion” is back - thanks to criminal aliens from Turd World nations.

Try to imagine having a kids going to public government schools, as government rides shotgun, escorting freight trains full of illegals pouring in.

As government scatters them to all points to join millions of others already here...

With all these illegal aliens entering the country in swarms now..they’re leaving a trail of thier bugs along the way...all it takes is someone to take a bus or plane or taxi ride...and one in the schools to start it rolling again and again.

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

To infect as many as possible overwhelming the health care system creating a cry for "universal health care". Sure, the feds will fix everything.

Completely expected with all the illegals invading the country and getting free transport from the government to spread their diseases around. TB is what put both of my great-great grandparents into an early grave. A key reason for my great grandfather to emigrate to the US.

The gross incompetence of this administration and the added arrogance is astounding. And just think we still really don’t know who our POTUS really is. We have a U.S. State Department ran by Idealistic Fools who are disciples of Karl Heinrich Marx and his successors that took over our education system following WW1. Adding to that we have both houses being lead by arrogant and incompetent leadership from both parties that won’t do their Constitutional Duty they swore an oath to do. They too are Marxist swearing their allegiance so they themselves can be the elite in power. They have all the loyalty and morals of a pimp. They are like Pimps and guess whom they are pimping U.S. out and who too?

I contracted scabies back in the early 80’s. Absolutely miserable time. I and the family ended up using this topical lotion ALL over the body from head to toe and between the toes. It was a 24 hour treatment and while that was going on I threw out all of the sheets on the beds for new ones and shampooed rugs and upholstery.

They are a miserable thing to have and to get rid of too.

Yea, that was permetherin cream.
doc gave me two doses one week apart.
Didn’t work.
then the doc gave me the oral ivermectin insecticide..... still didn’t work.
TWO years later and I STILL have this prob.
Right now I feel like I have tiny little creatures digging and crawling on my skin, on my forearms, crawling around my hairline, eyebrows, the feeling of critters trying to craw into the corner of my eyes.....
This sensation comes and goes but never goes away.
It drives me CRAZY.
NO I don’t do drugs.....thinking about it though. lol
I haven’t had the massive skin flare ups with the thousands of sharp little bumps in a while though, just a vague burning sensation around my waist, lower back, ribs and upper thighs.
It’s a nightmare.
This all started less than a week after staying in a motel room on Cape cod two Augusts ago...
At first I thought I caught poison ivy, but after a few weeks I realized that was not the case.
No i’m an thinking maybe some kind of low-key system wide fungal infection.
Docs seem to be no help.
UGH
Why me?

Whoa!!!! If I were a parent, I'd be very upset.

In all, a little more than 450 students and staff have been tested. They were considered at high risk because they used the same classrooms or adjacent classrooms as the student who was infectious, health officials said.

Of those, 116 have tested positive for TB, though the vast majority have been confirmed to be latent TB, which is dormant and doesn't produce symptoms. An additional thirty of the students in that group still need further testing to determine whether they have active TB, McCasland said.
