Three more people in Colorado have been diagnosed with the plague after coming in contact with an infected dog whose owner contracted a life-threatening form of the disease, state health officials said on Friday.

In all, four people were infected with the disease from the same source, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said in a statement.

Wait until you see the nifty stuff the illegal kids are bringing in to pass on to the school children this fall.

The destiny of a nation who forsakes God Almighty...

Deuteronomy 28:20-22

20 The Lord will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.

21 The Lord will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess.

22 The Lord will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish.

Is "Dog" a euphemism for something else?

The bacteria that causes plague occurs naturally in the western United States, primarily in California, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The illegals didn’t cause this, but they have a host of other maladies awaiting to attack US citizens.

But don’t worry, Obamacare will fix it. /sarc

The bitter fruit of the diseased illegals. Obama is spreading diseases to the American people by allowing this maggot swarm!

I saw an episode of Survivorman where Les Stroud caught a rodent in the southwest desert. He did eat it but wouldn't touch it with his bare hands till he thoroughly cooked it without skinning it.

Fleas are fairly motile, though. Any proximity to an animal carrying plague-ridden fleas might be sufficient for them to “jump ship” right onto you.

Looks very much like a map of travel from Mexico to north of the border.

Best info I could find was eastern Adams County. Don’t know why they’re being so vague on the exact location.

Almost all human plague cases in Colorado are caused by fools letting fido romp joyously through infected prairie dog colonies.

And we usually have several cases every year, with most being in the several-county area in my neck of the not-woods.

There was an incident a few years back where an biologist monitoring the populations of mountain lions found a dead lion. It had passed from the plague. The poor fellow attempted a post mortem examination and the body burst on him, covering him in infected blood and bacteria. He died within days.

Here's the story: Remembering Eric York 1970-2007

The good news is that if there are a lot of cases they will no longer be “rare cases of human plague”. See? Obama is solving the problem of those “rare cases of human plague” by importing more cases. He is a true genius!

That's a lie. I would expect no less from a federal agency. It ain't naturally occurring.

Here's the back story:

Plague first came to the United States in the 1850's. The rail companies were legally importing Chinese coolies to work on the transcontinental railway.

There was a small plague outbreak in San Fransisco's Chinatown district. An alert doctor spotted the outbreak almost immediately, and appealed to the city council to institute a quarantine and rat catching program.

The town fathers refused to believe there was plague in their fair city.

They screwed around long enough for it to infect the local ground squirrel population where there was no hope stopping it from spreading. Thanks to their inaction, now one can be exposed to bubonic plague anywhere in the western US.

Any parallels one wishes to draw with a more recent "gay plague" or flooding the country with disease infected children are left to the reader as an exercise.

Those who do not learn the lessons of the past...

Deuteronomy 28:20-22

Sounds good until one realizes the difference between Old and New Covenants---and puts things in context. Your entry is to those living under the Old Covenant and what is in store for them if they do not obey the Old Covenant rules they were living under. They asked for it (commandments and laws) and they got it.

“Your entry is to those living under the Old Covenant and what is in store for them if they do not obey the Old Covenant rules they were living under.”

Unfortunately many in our country are living under the Old Covenant. Thankfully we believers live under Psalm 91.

Beautiful and relevant through Jesus.

At the time, Jesus was not around to turn to for Salvation - God took it upon Himself to forgive/purify those He found worthy. Hence the comment about David being sin-free when he died, despite the deal with Uriah....

I take comfort in Psalms and other passages in the Old Covenant, but I stake my life and salvation entirely in the New Covenant which began upon the Resurrection of Christ.

“but I stake my life and salvation entirely in the New Covenant which began upon the Resurrection of Christ.”

Amen! Jesus is coming soon, so many are lost, and so few seem to care.
