Illegal to be arrested for being tuberculosis positive in California.

Going to be seeing a lot more of this, I do think.

Prosecutors in Central California have obtained an arrest warrant for a tuberculosis patient who they say is contagious and has refused treatment.
San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor said Thursday that police are looking for 25-year-old Eduardo Rosas Cruz, a transient who comes from a part of Mexico known for a drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis.
Now, you would think that FREE treatment for a very painful and fatal disease, not to mention free room and board, would be enough to keep anybody happy. You would be wrong.
Prosecutors say Rosas Cruz was diagnosed in March when he went to the hospital for treatment of a severe cough. He was supposed to stay in a motel room, where a health worker would deliver his medication and watch him take it. But prosecutors say he took off.
This is the kind of "transient", read illegal Mexican, that one commonly is dealing with in the South West these days. They are not all good, hard working Catholics with a tan. I'd guess as much as 10% of them are like this Eduardo Rosas Cruz guy. Pig-ignorant gutter trash who just don't give a rip what happens to them or anybody else.

Spread drug resistant TB to other people? Who cares, he needed some smokes. Or a hit of crack. Or who the hell knows what, he just felt like leaving so off he went to spread destruction and death. He's That Guy.

Lots of 'em are That Guy. A very common and recurrent pattern that shows up in the illegal immigrant population. That Guy in sufficient numbers will bring down entire public service systems just by existing. Places like Minnesota are getting inundated, and they just can't handle them. California is already crushed. Its too expensive. It costs an idiotic amount of money to monitor somebody who won't cooperate. The odd druggie or deranged vet they can handle, but 100 new cases a month? No way.

What's the alternative? Forced confinement in a TB sanitarium, of course. Otherwise known as prison for sick people.

Every city in Ontario has buildings, sometimes entire hospital compounds, called "The Sanitarium". Usually referred to as "The San". Arizona was a place people with TB were sent, to be cured by the dry desert air.  Example, Bethany Home Road in Phoenix is named for the Bethany Home, which was a TB sanitarium. TB was big business in Phoenix for a very long time, there's old sanitariums all over the valley.

By the time us Baby Boomers came along after WWII they were being re-purposed as regular hospitals, and Gen XYZers probably never even heard about it. But before Penicillin was invented and rolled out in the 1940's, The San was where an awful lot of people went to die.

Because TB is contagious. Look for new sanitariums to start springing up in the next ten years or so, because this problem is only just starting.

What is the US government doing right now? Bringing drug resistant TB into the country. Deliberately.

Like, on purpose. Any questions?

"Any questions?"

Yes. Considering the significant threat to their health, safety, and sovereignty, why aren't the American people in an armed revolt over this?

An immediate one-way flight back to May-hee-co with Uncle Sam's boot-print on his ass, that's what. For him and every other illegal.

Because they think antibiotics can cure -anything-, and they've been taught from the cradle that Nothing Bad Can Happen In America.

Besides, they are in armed revolt already. The Minute Men have been doing armed patrols in the desert since 2005. They regularly bounce off the Border Patrol in places like Arizona and Texas. You just never hear about it, because Big Media doesn't want you to.

Also because, being armed better than the Border Patrol, the Feds don't mess with them much.

Well, If I was charged with bringing a nation to its knees in a triple holocaust of plague, economic and social collapse, I'd do what Obama is doing.

While we are distracted with the open border start phase of this plan, the KO punch is in the wind.

You should be concerned that world health officials are freaking out over the new outbreak of Ebola in east Africa, and the fact it can become pandemic is just a plane ride away because no western nation has taken the threat seriously enough to restrict travel from the infected sources - yet silence from US border and disease control on this very real threat from the most contagious deadly disease since the black plague (there is evidence it is a lab-created weapons grade virus) - we're still welcoming any and all carriers of this plague to the center of multicult bedlam by not quarantining flights from east Africa.

Can full martial law and the SHTF apocalypse be far off with the criminally inept scum we have looking after our safety and security?
