California faces multi-year surge in Medieval Diseases
« on: May 21, 2019, 07:41:46 PM »
California is facing record levels of typhus and fears of bubonic plague.  Instead of eliminating religious exemptions for vaccinations, maybe Californians should put some effort in curtailing the defecation and mountains of trash on the streets?

CA Suffers Medieval Diseases

Tim Pool did a video about the ravages of unchecked garbage, Typhus, and human fecal matter that is all the rage in California:

It sounds like something out of Chaucer but LA is awash in garbage and rats and a growing pestilence problem while San Francisco literally needs to have apps that help one avoid human poop on the streets.

This is concerning because people like me are definitely not going to expose our children to what looks like the breeding ground of the next bubonic plague. Not so good for the tourism economy. And what happens if this spins out and we start quarantining people from CA? It gets real dark real quick all because it's a destination for the homeless and the bureaucrats can't keep a sanitary society.

Very scary to follow this to its conclusion.

Cases of flea-borne typhus in Texas over the last decade is 3X the number in California. And Texas has 75% the population, so the rate is even higher.

I don't see much choice but to quarantine all Californians who can't show recent proof of being declared flea-free by a doctor. No exemptions. The public must be protected!

I work in downtown LA and it’s a concern. Recently, LA City Hall had issues with an infestation

I would not advocate for some kind of health policy to be enforced on Californians but it is a scary situation. I don't know what to say to people who would deny that there is a public safety risk. I have family in Thousand Oaks and they talk of downtown like it's a leper community.

At some point you drown in piles of garbage and feces and it becomes irreparable. I'm not sure we have an English word that conveys the woeful stupidity and general incompetence of the politicians who will imagine they can control such a disaster.
