I was going to say that these kids could end up with diseases that will last them far longer than the encampment but it looks like it is already happening.You can’t really do anything once you have that except live under rules to keep the general public safe from you and a life time of meds.

A classic case of nature culling out the most unfit.

And Karma.

Maybe Oboma should go right down there, take a deeeeeeeep breath, give a loooooooong speech, hug a few young, totally buffed college guys, and heal them all.

Conditions are ripe for cholera and typhoid outbreaks, brought on by the “progressive” elements, soon to become true trots-kyists.

There’s just something about the combination of crowded encampments without proper sanitary procedures and epidemic diseases:

“The first well-recorded European outbreak of what is now known as syphilis occurred in 1495 among French troops besieging Naples, Italy.[3] It may have been transmitted to the French via Spanish mercenaries serving King Charles of France in that siege.[13] From this centre, the disease swept across Europe. As Jared Diamond describes it, “[W]hen syphilis was first definitely recorded in Europe in 1495, its pustules often covered the body from the head to the knees, caused flesh to fall from people’s faces, and led to death within a few months.” The disease then was much more lethal than it is today.” - Wikipedia

Just as long as they don’t put too much salt on their food Bloomberg will look the other way.

Or worse, let's consider the parameters here for a biological terrorist inflitration and a bunch of people huddled together in less than sanitary conditions...

If they’re the real deal they’ll be “Occupy” enough to not use any for profit medical care.

Do they make a neutron bomb small enough to cover just a city-block?

(Just curious. Not really suggesting anything.)

Tuberculosis is apparently resistant to drugs now. It's time for mayors to close down all Occupy sites in the U.S. The disease is contagious.

The cooks are already getting pissed about working 12+hrs a day , when they start press ganging the rest of the mob into kitchen duties watch the disease rate skyrocket due to the poor sanitation of all involved.

Dysentery & E-coli outbreaks can be deadly if not caught & treated early . You will see Darwin & evolution in action very shortly.

What most people don’t know is that before the invention of antibiotics, disease killed more folks in time of war than anything else, the belt fed machine gun came close in WWI & it certainly killed men faster but it was a second place contender.

So far they have U.R.I.(Upper Respiratory Infection) with more of the general mob helping in the “kitchen” look for outbreaks of dysentary & E-coli to break out.

Dysentary ,U.R.I. &e-coli OH MY 8*O .Wonder how many will get dead from the diseases before they figure out that cooking/eating were you shit & not keeping clean is not a really smart idea?

Cholera is a, um, poop-borne disease. No insect or animal vectors required.

Pressure washers & LYSOL cleans deodorizes & disinfects & it does it without all the collateral damage of a tactical nuke or even a little napalm strike from a A-10 or a Harrier jump jet. 8*>

Too bad these morons dont read history. In wars like the Civil War more troops were lost due to illness than bullets. Camps without proper sanitary care are breeding grounds for sickness.
This should show why in a class war or a SHTF event, these people would perish because they are stupid and didnt take the right precautions.

On the southern end of Roosevelt Island under the Queensboro bridge are some dilapidated buildings that were used as an insane asylum and TB sanitorium until 80-90 yrs. ago. Maybe it’s time to create “shovel ready” jobs and restore this facility and ship the occupunks to their new home.

No you don’t it is antibiotic resistant and has to be treated for life to try to keep it under control.I think they can keep it from being infectious but you always harbor the virus and it can become like that over and over.

MRSA seems to be like that too, coming back over and over. I know a kid who got MRSA during wrestling season in high school and kept getting it back. I won’t say that he got it from wrestling because the kid also is an addict. The last time, he was in the hospital for months. I think that his arm is pretty much useless, now.

I find it sickening that we are bombarded daily from the left and their media about unhealthy choices in our lives.

Yet, this OWS scum are allowed to camp out in filth in the middle of cities spreading disease. No mention whatsoever about stopping this ridiculous mess and looking out for the public safety of the cities.

If massive disease breaks out, it won’t just affect the people in the park, it will spread to decent people who aren’t involved in this stupidity.
