Posted on 11/11/2011 9:56:23 AM PST by Impala64ssa
With wintry weather poised to swoop into the cramped outdoor quarters of Occupy Wall Street protesters, it may not be long before more campers catch what's being called "Zuccotti lung."
That's what demonstrators have dubbed the sickness that seems to be spreading among them at an unpleasantly high rate these days: "It's a real thing," Willie Carey, 28, told the New York Times.
With little sleep in cold conditions, cigarettes and drinks being passed from mouth to mouth, and few opportunities to wash hands, Zuccotti Park may now just be the best place to catch respiratory viruses, norovirus (also known as the winter vomiting virus) and tuberculosis, according to one doctor.
The damp clothing and cardboard signs wet with rain are also breeding grounds for mold. Some protesters are urinating in bottles and leaving food trash discarded throughout the campground, providing further opportunities for nastiness.

sleep with dogs, wake up with fleabaggers.
Not to mention all of the unchanged diapers.
Is that a renaming of Tuberculosis? Just wondering.
Nature’s way of cleaning up the herds?
Trench mouth at the very least.
Oh, I’m so sorry that these people have had to endure all this for their free tuition, free food, free everything. It’s just a shame we don’t see the value in shutting down commerce and addressing their demands right now. This is the land of the free EVERYTHING, right? It couldn’t happen to a more deserving group.
Wow~! this really IS just like the TEA party~!
Next, they’ll have to set up a quarantine so they couldn’t leave if they wanted to.
If I was rich and mean and anonymous, I’d hire prostitutes of each gender and sexual orientation infected with an STD to go through the park offering their services for free.
Ugh! Actually, I do think it’s a health menace and I don’t see whay Bloomberg’s normally eager-to-shut-you-down health department is just shrugging. Oh, that’s right, this isn’t a business. (Well, it is, but let’s just say it doesn’t have a business license.)
Think of it as evolution in action...
Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlantas Base
Word is TB has shown up at Occupy Atlanta.
These people are living proof that the rules of public health are necessary.
Like I posted in the above thread, I have a hard time feeling sympathy for people who behave deliberately stupidly.
OMG. This is like a liberal wet dream. This is totally a utopia for these people. Imagine how ecstatic these leftists must be. They can wallow around in their own filth - forever - for FREE!!!
Let’s see...disease, drugs, filth, rape, murder, sex in public...yes, EXACTLY like the Tea Party.
Seriously, if anyone can now compare the Tea Party with OWS and keep a straight face is an absolute lunatic.
The Dems tried SO hard to make the Tea Party look like a bunch of crazy Nazi’s. There can be no doubt now who the crazies really are.
OWS has morphed into a Star Trek Episode with frightening accuracy:
