Outbreak of Legionnaires' disease occupy Wall Street health risk.
(Vanity) | 6 October 2011 | areukiddingme1

Does the mayor of New York not read the newspapers?

Watch the news?

Receive briefings from his public health department?

Here we have the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) investigating 15 cases of Legionnaires Disease issuing a Health Advisory -- warning the public of the risk of infection. An infection which is on the increase along the Atlantic states.

“What is Legionnaires’ disease; Legionnaires’ disease (LEE-juh-nares) is caused by a type of bacteria called Legionella. The bacteria got its name in 1976, when many people who went to a Philadelphia convention of the American Legion suffered from an outbreak of this disease, a type of pneumonia (lung infection). Outbreaks are when two or more people become ill in the same place at about the same time.” From the CDC web page.

Hummmm, lots of people, gathered together…where have we heard that before, hummm, I wonder.

Besides being a nuisance, the “occupy Wall Street” protest presents a risk to human health and safety – I believe that the mayor and the New York City Division of Public Health could make an argument that hundreds of transient protestors clustered together creates a risk to public health and safety – God forbid that New York City has its own outbreak of Legionnaires’ Disease – I think one could place the blame directly on the mayor for allowing this threat to public health and safety go on entirely way to long and create the environment where such an outbreak increases exponentially with everyday the unsanctioned protest is allowed to go on.

Go ahead mayor – Roll the dice make a bet with the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of New York –I’m sure they won’t mind when the city is under an epidemic of Legionnaires’ disease.

I mean…what are the odds anyway that hundreds or thousands would contract Legionnaires’ disease? I mean Delaware is like way, way far away, right.

Yeah - but are they smoking (tobacco - the other doesn’t count..) or ingesting trans-fats and/or salt??

Any of these would be sure to bring the full holy wrath of Mayor Bloomberg down on their pointy little heads....

Wow!, whose got the film rights?

The Woodstock film profits pulled the big studios out of the doldrums way back when.

Excellent point...And I don’t believe that there has been any sightings of that pesky ole American flag, or heads would be rolling.

No showers. That's against the Occupado rules.

Surely not all of them are eating Big Macs and using MacBathrooms. So some probably emulate the Urban Outdoorsmen from San Fran and just go where they are.

And keeping them from dehydration would be a major problem. So perhaps some recycling of bodily wastes is helping with this problem.

I can only hope it spreads in the Occupado community.

Oh my gosh.

I wondered about eating showering and bathroom, but the last one you mention???? They are doing that in that park??????

Based on that, one of their demands should be free birth control.................

Maybe they're eating their trash, peeing on each other to get cleaner, and having sex with themselves.
They're recycling - sort of. It's a save the planet thing.

the same arguments can be proffered to halp any protest on any topic, or any mass gatherings...

I would expect a venereal disease breakout, maybe SARS infection, hepatitus, pink eye, tapeworms, E. coli infection, Salmonella, or hoof and mouth disease, but legionnaires disease will do just fine.

Can’t we find another name for this disease? The American Legion has had to endure this slur for going on four decades now.

How serious is Legionnaire’s?

Patients with Legionnaires' disease usually have fever, chills, and a cough, which may be dry or may produce sputum, muscle aches, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, loss of coordination (ataxia), and occasionally diarrhea and vomiting. Confusion and impaired cognition may also occur , as can a so-called 'relative bradycardia', i.e. low or low normal heart rate despite the presence of a fever.

In other words, it's hard to diagnose the disease in a liberal. They have so many.
If they do have it,though, they're going to have to call it a day. The party's over.

” Don’t forget the Bed Bug infestation! “

After they leave (lose interest and wander off), “Clean Up Wall Street” will take on a whole new meaning....

Oh yeah. I forgot about those. NYC has a big problem with those evasive critters.
The Oboma Rally kids are going to be bringing those things home to their parents. Boy, are they going to be in big trouble!
Their parent's aren't going to be too happy about the body lice, either. Those kids are so screwed! No PlayStation for at least a week!

NY night time temperatures will be around freezing for awhile. Last night, the frost was so heavy my husband had to use an ice scrapper to get it off the car Windows.

Gee. That's a shame. Those protesters must be getting pretty cold. LOL.

I’ve watched them. LOL! They’re the grandkids of the filthy, Marxist, threw rocks at ROTC cadets, a$$holes I went to college with! Three generations of losers in the same families! Poetic justice!
