Well, we've had rapes, theft, beatings, obscenities, killings, mindless gibbering by the drove, now resistant TB. Sounds like a convention of the Young Democrats.

That or an SEIU convention.

Seems to me that people who donate to homeless shelters need to be made aware that their donations are being used to house marxists who simply want free stuff.

Reminds me of a story from this spring here in Michigan. The SEIU hired some homeless guys from a shelter to picket a small construction company. It turned out that the owner of the company “was” the single largest donor to the shelter.

So, the people who hate capitalism are at risk of getting a disease once called “consumption”?

How fitting.

If feel badly for the real homeless they’ve exposed to TB, the real homeless they’ve displaced, the real homeless whose meals they eat.

That’s a shame because the homeless guys were pawns. It’s no surprise SEIU would exploit homeless. It’s unlikely the “protesters” had any knowledge or motive other than happy to have some income.

Oh really I was expecting Ebola.

Tuberculosis? Very mild considering.

You forgot the outbreak of lice in Portland, OR.

If it was a hot summer protest maybe there would be an outbreak of cholera. Since winter is coming on I guess we can plan on some Pneumonia to go along with the TB.

What a terrible shame, those poor homeless people being exposed to diseases carried in by the communist occupation force.

What’s next from those filthy animals? Ebola?

"If feel badly for the real homeless they’ve exposed to TB, the real homeless they’ve displaced, the real homeless whose meals they eat."

That's the only thing about this charade that is not in the least bit funny. I'm sure a good number of those homeless are impaired in some way, have fallen prey to addiction, or are really down on their luck.

I have *zero* sympathy for the OWS folks. They are the epitome of the mindset that seems to be ingrained in the left, and IMHO, is evident in scandals like Solyndra, albeit on a different level. Part of that mindset (often attributed to the right) is stepping on others to "get yours". What makes it scary is that it is justified by the idea that it is ok to step on others if "your cause is just".

Could be a rumor started by the “government” to empty the camp.

Given all the ‘rats there, I would have guessed the plague, though.

I am somewhat surprised someone hasn't been able to obtain the services of a couple of some local fauna, namely skunks. Seeing a couple of P'O’d skunks running through one of those OWS sites would add color as well as fragrance. Just idle musings on a slow day.

The talk lasted about an hour and I felt as I did when I heard Ronald Reagan speak.

That was my first thought, too. these spoiled brats are taking beds and food away from real homeless people. Shameful!

Yes. In my area charities and food businesses are donating food to this movement,which includes many Ivy League college students. Food from places that normally give to the poor and homeless. There are some homeless in the park the occupiers inhabit so supposedly that makes it okay. You wouldn’t believe the stuff they get for free.

Horrible that this group of homeless mentioned in the article have now had their health endangered even futher.

Rush did mention today that since the occupy movement is failing the WH is telling city officals to clear the parks (or something to that effect).
