Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlanta’s Base

ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) – The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.

The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. WGCL reports that a health department spokeswoman said there is a possibility that both Occupy Atlanta protesters and the homeless people in the shelter may still be at risk since tuberculosis is contracted through air contact.

“Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB),” said Fulton County Services Director Matthew McKenna in a written statement to CBS Atlanta. “One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition. All person(s) identified as positive have begun treatment and are being monitored to ensure that medication is taken as directed.”

The Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless has indicated that two cases have been made public knowledge to the group, the first coming from someone who contracted the disease in September. The identities of the people who have contracted the disease, however, have not been disclosed by the health department to this point.

The news of the tuberculosis contractions could force Occupy Atlanta to move once again. WGCL reports that more than 100 protesters made the move to the homeless shelter Oct. 30 after Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed evicted Occupy Atlanta from Woodruff Park, citing that they were no longer allowed to camp out overnight. The homeless shelter is also facing an eviction of its own from the city.

Tim Franzen spokesman for Occupy Atlanta told WAOK’s Rob Redding that the group is not thinking about moving its headquarters from the homeless shelter because of the tuberculosis report. Read more about the report here

    Look at the LIES in the headline!

    It did NOT break out in the Occupy movemment, it was a HOMELESS SHELTER.

    What the hell i the media so scared of OWS for?

    1. Caligula says:

      good question. after all..they’re lefties just like you all.

      1. stevo says:

        mentally ill freak detected. Hey hows that tea party going? Oh wait, the republicans haven’t told you what to think yet.Its ok,sheep like you never choose,you only wait to obey.

      2. Mommy's Boy Detector says:

        Stevo, you need to get out of your mom’s basement. Put some clothes on, go outside and get some fresh air!

      3. speedstan says:

        The Tea Party is doing fine. Unlike your group of diseased malcontents, most Tea Party people are grown adults with real responsibilities. They conduct their protests peacefully, clean up after themselves, and go home at the end of the day.

      4. Justsayin says:

        The media isn’t afraid of the Occupy Movement. They love the hell out of all the money it’s making them.

      5. jtorgerson says:

        LMAO Stevo. This from a guy who’s group recites every word spoken to them in Borg-like accord.

        Hey Stevo – “Mike Check!”

      6. Cole Campbell says:


      7. ubuibi says:

        I’d much rather be a member of the Tea Party, than what you people have developed into…….the FLEA PARTY!!!!!

      8. iamdan says:

        the Obama PEE PARTY has no message , just like Obama has no plan.

      9. capt-ATL says:

        Stevo is just afraid of the Republicans reducing or having him pick up trash in return for the food stamps that magically show up on his EBT card.

    2. bloody says:

      read the whole article, it says some of the OWS people have been staying there recently, around the last paragraph.

    3. Casperini says:

      Ows occupied a homeless shelter, moron.

      1. Chris says:

        Minus the “shelter.”

      2. Dennis the Menace says:

        Moron???????HhMmmmm. What would you call a group of protesters that occupy a shelter where T.B. has been present?? Oh ya….Indoctrinated!!!!!!!!!!

    4. JohnK says:

      The media has gone out of their way to whitewash the dark side of OWS. Here’s a list of 189 incidents of lawlessness.

      How many of these have you seen in the establishment media?

      1. Tim Rue says:

        For a rap sheet on Banks just google “Bank Fraud”
        …shrug… Or is that just to easy?

      2. JohnK says:

        Tim Rue, if only you understood that I know what is going on with the “banking industry,” maybe we could come to a consensus. But you assume I’m not aware of the problems. That is NOT the case. So we will never see the same solutions to the problems we have. That’s sad, because we could actually fix the problems if we did.

      3. william says:

        What the media needs to do is go review the record of violence perpetrated at the hands of union members. My family and I were direct victims of union violence/retribution. I have seen the devastation of property and people as a result of them not getting what they want. I would love to see their reaction if people came after their families the way they do others. What a bunch of pathetic cowards. The situation I was involved in resulted in massive property damage that could have easily led to someones death had they merely been standing a few feet in either direction, i.e. shots fired through vehicles, office windows, etc. Nothing but a bunch of ignorant barbarians with no respect for anything but themselves. I have zero respect, sympathy, empathy for anyone associated with unions after what I experienced. Stand and face me like a man – no, they are cowards who go after their targets under the cover of dark and disguise. Pathetic cowards, all of you!

      4. dredd says:

        Remember william… it’s “the Chicago way”…

        The Donks are DOOMED!

      5. Bunky says:

        someone committed a crime, therefore I can commit a crime or excuse them.

    5. cntrlfrk says:

      Oh, I don’t know, maybe 4 weeks of rampant rapes, drug dealing, assaults, and destruction of private property???


    6. Heat Seeker says:

      The headline reads, “Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlanta’s Base.”

      Occupy Atlanta’s base IS the homeless shelter. The headline is entirely accurate.

      As an FYI, the media LOVES OWS. That is why the media continues to portray the participants as sincere, committed, thoughtful idealists…not refugees from Mom and Dad’s basement trying to evade student loans, debit card fees, and responsibility generally.

      1. MrMano says:

        “Media Loves OWS”….hahahaha


      2. MrMano says:

        I’ll tell ya what….
        If the media loves OWS so much then I implore you to visit everyday (which is a news aggregator ) and tell me after a week what you saw. More articles in support of OWS or more against. As someone who has kept a good eye on the media portrayal of these events it is clear the media is completely against OWS.

      3. allah save us says:

        TB breaks out at ‘Occupy Atlanta’…

        Shooting at Vt camp…

        ‘Occupy’ spreads to Harvard…

        Man arrested at ‘OWS’ for breaking EMT’s leg…

      4. Real world says:

        Oh Mr mano.. such a cute little boy! How old are you now, big boy, 10? you’re growing up so fast…. maybe soon you’ll be forming big boy opinions!!

        Seriously man, come on- it’s clear to us grown ups that Heat Seeker is referring to the MSM (oh sorry, that stands for main stream media)… that does not include Drudge. But nice try.. now go try on your big boy pants again.. and don’t poop in them this time!

      5. MrMano says:

        In reply to REAL WORLD…

        How dense are you? Did you not read I said Drudgereport is an aggregator of MSN?

        Lets analyze this shall we?:
        Drudge headlines as of 11/10/11

        TB breaks out at Occupy Atlanta……..CBS (Is this mainstream news enough for ya?)
        Shooting at VT Occupy………Garnett Company (Owner of USA Today..MSN enough for ya?)
        Mayor serves Eviction…..The Oregonian (19th largest daily newspaper in the country. MSN enough for ya?)
        Plan to Crash New Years Rose Parade…..CBS (again, MSN enough for ya?)

        The Drudge Report registers more than 12 million UNIQUE hits per month, not including mobile iphone hits. (enough of an MSN aggregator for ya?)

        Now YOU go take a bath and put on your Underoos…tomorrow is a new opportunity for you to learn something.

    7. Happydots says:

      What’s the difference?

      1. Hawkeye says:

        Mano… incredible idiot. What exactly has Drudge posted that is not true? You in all of your magnificent stupor cannot dfistinguish between your make believe commie world and reality. You obviously suffer from Dunning-Kruger Syndrome. Gets some help.
        By the way…How much are you getting paid by Soros ? OK, Maybe it’s the unions payiong you.
        Start a business and make some money. Then come back and tell us how you like paying for freeloaders like yourself.

    8. Ratt says:

      FTA: “The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. ”

      Don’t read much do you ?

    9. allah save us says:

      “Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis”

      3 months huh? let me just pull up my callendar real quick…

      oh my… it appears ows started on september 17th…

      but wait it gets better, when did occupy atlanta begin? October 6.

      wait wait it gets EVEN BETTER, when did they move the headquarters to the homeless shelter? Oct 31, 2011

      biased article much?

      1. ladydi says:

        God is good!!! TB might just clean ’em out!!!

    10. Rudy says:

      When a congress woman in Arizona was shot the media speculated that it must be prompted by the Tea Party. You wonder why the media accurately describes the disease, vandalism, violence, sexual assaults ,etc. that occur at these occupy events. The tea party rallied and then organized the vote. They did not become a public nuisance and eyesore.

      1. Logo4245 says:

        Well said. Thank you.

    11. J_Ruben_Kincaid says:

      Whats the difference

    12. Ghostsouls says:

      The protesters have been COMPLAINING that the homeless from the AREA have been infiltrated their protest site, and trying to sleep in their tents, and their area and get food from them…. So it doesn’t matter, if they got it at the homeless shelter or from someone else at the OWS site, people at the OWS protests are in danger, because they cannot weed out the homeless. OWS has become a hot bed of controversy for TB, drugs, prostitution, pimps, drugs, drug addicts, anarchists, you name it, what ever the ORIGINAL intent were for the OWS protesters, it is lost in the chaos that it has now become. NO one not you nor me knows EXACTLY where it broke out at, it could have been the homeless shelter, or OWS, the police station, the library, or wal-mart. The fact remains it’s there and everyone at OWS is in jeopardy, and everyone THEY come in contact with and so on and so on…

      1. ladydi says:

        So go home idiots…unless as I fear, your home is under a rock…

    13. OBOZOSUX says:

      UH, because they’re certifiably INSANE! Duh!

    14. Michaeltkennedy says:

      TB, you fool.

    15. hinckleybuzzard says:

      Well, so far they have given us rapes, killings, theft, beatings, vandalism, disturbing the peace, drunk and disorderly, and now resistant TB. Sounds just like a gathering of the Young democrats.

    16. jasmine says:


      What lies in the headline? The headline states -“Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlanta’s Base”

      And what part of the article did you not understand?:

      ===Tim Franzen spokesman for Occupy Atlanta told WAOK’s Rob Redding that the group is not thinking about moving its headquarters from the homeless shelter because of the tuberculosis report. ===

      This is a statement by the spokesman for Occupy Atlanta, who says their headquarters (headquarters = base) are located in the shelter. Is HE lying, too?

      1. Matt O says:

        Actually this report is wrong as it more than 100 were negative for turberculousis

        Check out the here for the full story:

    17. davec no heart says:

      Is this how you lefties help the homeless? By sending them to a shelter where they’ll get tuburculosis? Why do you want to kill the homeless? They are people just like everybody else.

    18. Amanda Ritari says:

      Actually, if you can even read the article, it says the movement has been using the shelter as its base. I know liberals are scared of facts and all, but jeez.

    19. jeffery Stone says:

      Dear Dave if you went to a GOV public school I can understand your inability to read and COMPREHEND…the Occupy Base is “IN” THE HOMELESS SHELTER.

    20. john says:

      Nobody is scared of OWS, they are a bunch of dirty hippie liberals and their presence is simply being tolerated, nothing more.

    21. MorganGray says:

      Um… read the rest of the article; “The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for TB”.
      Let me try to say that in small words for you: Drug resistant TB has been found in the homeless shelter being used as living quarters for the (not-so-homeless) occupy Atlanta gang.
      The story is accurate. There has been a TB breakout at occupy Atlanta’s base.
      Why are the media scared of OWS? (notice? no dangling participle?)
      They are afraid that you thugs will threaten to stab them in the throat with a pen, just like they did Jesse Waters.
      They are afraid that you flea-baggers will carry a deadly disease into the rest of the community at large.
      They are afraid you will attract disease carrying rats, fleas, lice, ticks and other vermin to your filthy encampments, which vermin will then spread into *our* communities.
      They are afraid the predatory rapists and druggies, and murderers who are attracted to your defenseless members will spread into the rest of the community and carrying with them, that violence.
      They are afraid the riots, the rock throwing, the fire-bombings will spread.
      They are afraid every time something happens that you flea-baggers don’t like, they will wake up and find a mob of violent, unwashed, hate-filled, disease-carrying, predators camped on their doorsteps.
      This isn’t politics, this isn’t free-speech. This is the attempted tyranny of the mob.

    22. patmurphy1965 says:

      Nobody scared of you fools!!

      Just go away and take your infestations, affliction, bane, blot on the landscape, canker, contamination, corruption, curse, decay, dump, evil, eyesore, fungus, mildew, pest, pestilence, pollution, rot, scourge, sight, withering and woe.

    23. siylence says:

      No one’s scared of OWS, we pity them. This entire farce of a movement that has been embraced by the MSM and Democrats is nothing more than Crimefest 2011. You have drug addicts, dealers, thieves, rapists, murderers and homeless all gathered together stealing taxpayer dollars, obstructing business and not to mention destroying public property and now spreading disease. This is not a political movement to rival the Tea party, it’s a cry for help from a bunch of left wing anarchist radicals with no cohesive goal or agenda, and no representative for public office, not that anyone would vote for such a candidate.

      This “occupy” scenario simply exposes the hypocrisy of all involved. They want jobs but hate corporations, they hate capitalism but expect to profit from it, they even trademarked the “occupy name” so they can “sell” memorabilia. They chant against the rich but use products and services they provide, and buy their clothes, drive their cars and talk on their phones and use their computers…They have been exposed. They are not credible and the entire country is sick of their hypocrisy. I just pray they go home and/or get help soon because Nov, 2012 is going to be a shock to their entire political/ideological world view.

      2. K says:

        Bigger issue, resistant TB. HIGHLY contagious and they want to STAY in the shelter? What’s sad is OWS and their agenda is so important that they don’t even protect their own. Heads up! People still die from TB morons!

      3. Matt O says:

        Actually you really need to fact check this article
        for example compare it to this

        People like Whitey Ford need to die? Is that right, Stevo?

        You nasty, little dirtbag. Great job convincing people of your ideas, idiot.

      11. Jon says:

        “You and whose army are going to make him die, Stevo?”

        There are 300 MILLION guns in private hands in the United States. In 2009, more guns were sold to those hands than the entire Chinese and Indian armies COMBINED own.

        Should these Occupy idiots get too froggy, their life expectancy will be very brief indeed.

      12. Leonard W Giddens Jr says:

        Aids will be the next out break. Occupy is a desease waiting to happen. I would not walk 100 yards near those pig stys. The smell alone will take you out.

      Hey kiddies…you’re still on mom and dad’s healthcare plan (thanks to Barry). Go get checked out.

      1. Brittany Lewis says:

        It’s amazing how much you live in a bubble. Are you even aware how many “moms and dads” never had health care to even offer to their kids? Or how many “kiddies” are only in college because they’ve sold their souls to the debt machine to get by? Apparently your privilege is too strong for you to realize that there are other people in America OTHER than rich white kids. That there are people who are 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 years old, whose 401k’s were STOLEN when by their former employers, and there are families whose homes were STOLEN when banks illegally foreclosed on them and illegally sold their homes, there are teens who come out because they have no clue what a future even MEANS anymore, and yes there ARE idealistic college kids out there but when in the world did you start to believe that ONLY rich people go to college. There’s no Occupy Princeton or Occupy Harvard. The students who are occupying are $20,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. Where are the rich entitled kids? I’ve never met one and I’m on my 2nd degree. Everyone I know in school is paying for it themselves. They either have multiple jobs, they’re like me struggling to keep their own businesses afloat, or their relying on loans to live and PRAYING things will turn slightly better once we’re done with our masters programs… or Doctorates.
        The very very small percentage of %1 who show up at protests are there out of empathy for their fellow man. They recognize that all it takes is a Madoff or Enron and you’re whole world can change. All it takes is a few late payments on a bill and suddenly you’ve got a debt repayment percentage of 29.99%.

        Similar to the protests of the past, you choose to sit on the sidelines with the naysayers and lie to yourself about what’s going on. Lie to yourself about the facts. Since we created the Federal Reserve the American Dollar has decreased 2000%. Bankers run america from the top to the bottom, and unless we can elect officials who aren’t being purchased and placed by top corporations it will never change and get worse.

        I wonder what it’s like to live in such a bubble like yours. I bet it’s nice and shiny in there in your land of privilege. Perhaps ignorance really IS bliss.

      2. JMJ says:

        Crazy thing, Brittany… No on FORCED them to take out those loans. It’s not MY fault that they took out loans they couldn’t afford to go party for 4 years and then get degrees that weren’t worth the paper they were printed on. Some of us got JOBS and work FULL TIME while we go to school. It does cut down on the time spent at frat houses getting drunk and sleeping with people we won’t be able to remember in the morning but some of us are doing it anyway.

        Maybe if more of them had gotten degrees in subjects actually worth studying rather than wasting their time on psychology and political science… of course, an engineering degree might have required actual studying.

        I’m not responsible for their inability to live up to their own mistakes and it isn’t my problem that they can’t face the reality of a situation that they walked into with their eyes open.

      1. yup says:

        they moved the headquarters to the homeless shelter on Oct 31, 2011

        yet the article states TB had been found 3 months before.

      That’s what America gets for letting all of these ILLEGAL ALIENS into the Country!

  3. RJ says:

    If the protesters had been allowed to congregate someplace other than a HOMELESS SHELTER, maybe this could have been avoided.

    1. Get a permit, losers says:

      Do you mean campout/sleep at the homeless shelter? The reason I ask is because they can use just about any public place to congregate to get the “message” out and use their 1st Amendment. However, camping/sleeping at that said public place is not legal nor is it how a democracy works.

      1. ts says:

        The United Stats of America is not a democracy. I really wish that people like you and the teachers that teach that would stop. The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic.

      2. Brassia says:

        Provided they obtain the permit for their gatherings during the day…just like all Tea Party rallies had to do!!!! As well as obtain the insurance for the duration of the rally and portable toilets. I know -our group had to do all that in order to be able to get the permissoin from the autorities!

      3. Happydots says:

        ts, I love you.

    2. Martin Looter says:

      Hi guys, you’re coming into our city and protesting against us. May we house you free of charge in one of our 5 star hotels?

    3. JohnK says:

      Yeah, if they were congregating on a job site, this would almost certainly have been avoided.

    4. wodun says:

      You want the government to GIVE you a place you can set up your Obamaville? OWS claims of entitlement know no bounds.

        Get it right, They were called Hoovervilles first.

        TS is such a stickler for the truth…the accurate it ok if I label the OWs’ers as douchbaggers protesting for more Big-Brother paid for by Big-Brother?

    5. Heat Seeker says:

      They can congregate just about anyplace they want.

      There are plenty of vacant shops in the area. Rent one. There are plenty of office parks. Rent some space. The participants stay someplace; meet there.

      However, let me be clear: I was fine with leaving them in the park.

      Let me be clearer: I think the authorities should have put up fences and LOCKED them in there.

    6. jgalt says:

      purchase your own private property and occupy it all you want

      They could congregate at a military recruiting center and get an f*****g job

        John, you must be crazy. I don’t want those idiots in my army. I think WAY too much of the military to burden them with those ows loosers.

    8. glenp says:

      how about at your house you schlitstain?

    9. unbeliever says:

      I guess RJ is willing to let them set up at his house. It may be incovenient at first, but so is having to close down your business and fire your employees because customers can’t get in because of the protestors exercising their God given rights to infringe on others.

      Oh boo hoo….we have all gone so far out of our way to accomodate the “protesters” and we are sick to death with the entire movement. Enough is enough. You haven’t even made your point because you never really knew what it was…except you want something for nothing…good luck…I hope that never happens. Get a job like all the rest of us DECENT people!

  4. The Conservatarian says:

    Now that the occupiers are a public health risk, can they be made to leave?

    1. ts says:

      NO. We want them to stay in the homeless shelter. This way we can quarantine them from the public until every last one has a negative TB test.

    2. Brassia says:

      Their conduct and unsanitary conditions pose a danger to cities thay congregate…the disease may spread fast…it is rather scary…
      Here goes Obama’s secret plan to use them for his reelection as brown shirts….doubt they will be able to last that long now….
      Maybe their parents will persuade them to come back to the basements…..

      1. ladydi says:

        God is good!!Maybe more and m0re of them will get sick…and then they will have to leave. Problem is the rest of us will have to pay for their hospital bills…and that REALLY ticks me off…

    3. Dennis the Menaceb says:

      They just may get a lesson on “Facial Recognition Software” in the very near future. You know when it comes time for them to pay for the clean up!!!!!

  5. AtlasObjectivist says:

    It’s time to end this madness. These people have to rounded up.

  6. Calypso says:

    They need to shut these squatter camps down. They are hot beds for crime and disease.

    If they want to protest, they can pick some days, get permits and keep their them short. It’s what the Tea Party did and they were extremely effective in promoting change.

    What are these grotesque squatters good at except advancing crime and now disease?

  7. Jason in WA says:

    Ah, Mother Nature thinning out her herd. I think FEMA needs to quarantine them in the interests of public health. Morons.

    1. David B says:

      No you can not! AIDS has show us that when dem voting blocks have a disease that it would be too much of a stigma to qyarantine them.

  9. Brians440 says:

    Ha rich white kids mixing with homeless and they get to bring TB home with them. What will the folks at the country club say about that?

    1. Garfield Gordon says:

      rescind their membership lol🙂

    2. jasmine says:

      Just wait till they encounter fleas, scabies and lice . It’s what happens when people don’t bathe or change clothes very often. People who work in the medical field can tell you how easy it is to get scabies from homeless people. I know an xray tech who had to xray a homeless man and his wife wound up with scabies after she did her husband’s laundry.

      And, besides the STDs mentioned before, there are also two other communicable diseases that can be spread through close contact – influenza and hepatitus B.

  10. Martin Looter says:

    Can someone please call in the National Guard and end this national embarrassment?

    1. Garfield Gordon says:

      or at least the Iidiots from the public health dept who terrorize us into oblivion whenever there’s a new virus strain out there and bombard us with all kind of scaremongering campaigns, to make sure we put some money into the big Pharma pockets.. but don’t give sheite when there’s a real chance of TB spreading….why don’t they start a widely mediatized info campaign on the perils of TB (and other deseases) spreading out of that hygiene-challenged OWS crowd?…

      1. David B says:

        Hey OWS’ers come on down the weather is nice and the food is yummy! be sure to stop by the group hug tent for the free drugs and free sex.

    2. unbeliever says:

      Can’t call the Ntional Guard. They are all overseas being shot at for Obama.

    3. ladydi says:

      AMEN!!! But those libs like it just the way it is…I can’t imagine why…seems pretty uncomfortable to me!!!

  11. Joe says:

    How about having all the occupiers consolidate their efforts and form “Occupy Lincoln, Nebraska”?

    1. cntrlfrk says:

      Because, Nebraska would kick the low-lifes out.

      Hey, I’m from Lincoln, NE!

    These OWS protest are so dumb on so many levels.

  14. L-Dave says:

    I hope they intend to find non-big-pharma solutions to their TB!

  15. TERESA says:

    Why camp out at all??? Leave the homeless shelter to those who need it…the homeless. You can protest during the day. It’s not a party, it’s a protest. Go home.

  16. RuRu says:

    We beat back TB years ago, along with measles, mumps, chicken pox, etc., etc. You can’;t tell me that it is not the illegals swarming into this country who are not inoculated against these diseases, that are not carrying these diseases back to the U.S. When you come here legally you have to be healthy. When you sneak in you can be carrying anything, but the Liberals want them all here to live among you and your children. How do you like that!!!

    1. Happydots says:

      Oh, it’s absolutely the illegals who are bringing these darn near extinct diseases back to the US. It’s what the liberals want.

      1. Garfield Gordon says:

        but, hey, thank to Obama we have ‘free care’ now to treat it :-)…so, there, winning :-)…

  17. wodun says:

    Wow look at the OWS trying to defend the OWS protesters, “No really we are super clean! It is the homeless people’s fault blame them!”


    Have to wonder if OWS supporters have seen all of the videos of the protesters assaulting people and rioting, read the articles of people who have died, or the police blotters of OWS protesters firebombing buildings.

    They always have an excuse to justify their violence toward others.

    How do you think the OWS protesters would treat dissenters if they came to power?

    How many OWS protesters raped each other today?

    The Liberals that want the open borders will allow the sick to stream in here and to infect our children. These people are occupied by illegals, this is where this i coming from. God Help us All.

  20. Calypso says:

    “How about having all the occupiers consolidate their efforts and form “Occupy Lincoln, Nebraska”?” – Joe

    WHY? Occupy North Korea is a much better option. Many of these squatters are jonesen for Communism.

    We could load them into airbuses and drop them over Kim Jong Il’s worker’s paradise. They get their wish and we get rid of this unsanitary criminal element.

  21. Alice says:

    Incredibly inaccurate and also misleading. Insinuates that all TB is drug resistant, which it is not. So, which strain has been discovered? Treatable TB, MDR-TB, or XDR-TB? Reporter needs to get some medical facts straight before scaring the general public. Typical media scare tactic.

    1. allah save us says:

      get your medical hocus pocus out of this drudgereport article.
      we dont like no thinkin round here

      1. JohnK says:

        “One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition.”

        It’s IN THE FREAKING ARTICLE, genius. Read much?

      2. The ture God dose save us says:

        No most Drud readers don’t have to be told what to thank, they do it for themselfs, but if you want I think MSNBC is looking for someone to be told what to belive you would feel at home there.

    2. JohnK says:

      “One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition.”

      Did you even READ the article?

    3. Garfield Gordon says:

      yeah, wait until you get it, genius, and then report back to the ‘scaremongering’ media which one strain exactly it was….and how resistant for that matter….jeez, it should be illegal to be so moronic!!

    it only goes to show that we need to do more to eradicate poverty and homelessness

    our shameful inaction at addressing the most pressing social problems of the day, such as inequality caused by the bush tax cuts, is the cause of this suffering

    1. Don't Cough on Me says:

      TB doesn’t discriminate. Any idiot can catch it at the park. Former President Bush doesn’t have TB so you didn’t catch it from him.

    2. cntrlfrk says:

      How do you ‘eradicate poverty’??

      The democrats have been fighting their ‘War on Poverty’ for 50+ years, now we have $15 TRILLION$ in debt and bunch of whiners demanding more handouts.

      What do you suggest?


      1. Koch says:

        Maybe, you convince these bums to duh….get a job. If you don’t like that one(the job), get a different one.

        But don’t let them tell you or me I owe them more than I owe my children! When I pay for their worthless college education, and worthless LIFE, I no longer have the money to pay for my childrens education.

        They are nothing more than a whining parasites.

      2. Bill says:

        Maybe we could give each OWS idiot a democrat of their very own, then they could go home and have a whining contest together.

    3. Disc_Coastie says:

      You, sir, are a moron! What country anywhere at anytime in the history of the world HAS successfully created a lasting Marxist/Socialist society?? …. wait for it… wait for it….(cue the crickets)

      NONE!! Can’t happen, Won’t happen!!

    4. Happydots says:

      Ever see pictures of homeless men in the 1940s? They wore nice clothes and were determined to work. It has nothing to do with homelessness. It has everything to do with these homeless people being enabled.

      1. Kevin Pearson says:

        Because back in the 1940’s, what we call “homeless” today were institutionalized in mental institutions. Then the ACLU said that it was inhumane to lock them up and forced them to be released. Into the wild. And there they are.

    5. ladydi says:

      Oh brother…you are a piece of work!!! Methinks you should move to Denmark…there isn’t any poverty there and all the people are happy!!!

      1. Al says:

        Denmark is a tiny country (smaller than Vermont) with a single culture, so comparing any country in Scandanavia to the U.S. is irrelevent. We have over 380 million people with a plethora of cultures and languages. And no, they are not all happy. Alcoholism rates throughout Scandanavia are very high.

      2. Kevin Pearson says:

        Socialist/.Communist countries depend on a lot of cigarettes and hard liquor for the Communists to stay in power. And even when they don’t stay in power, the effects linger on for decades…. Look at all the countries that have the highest rates of cigarette smoking… All are former or present Communist countries except for the very top – Greece…. any surprise there?

  30. Disgusted Physician says:

    It really doesn’t matter if it is a homeless shelter or a loser’s camp. Drug resistant TB is not good news, for anyone! Syphilis/GC/Chlamydia are a breeze to treat compared to this. Well, at least they are in Atlanta, congregated together, refusing to leave.

  31. saz says:

    People need to realize what the Federal Reserve is all about.
    Here’s some basics: It’s a PRIVATE bank, with FOREIGN investors. It exists to make PROFIT. It was created SECRETLY on an island in Georgia and passed into law Christmas Eve 1913. They create money out of THIN AIR, and loan it to the government. They create DEBT. Their mission is to create DEBT. They have bribed politicians, corporations, and the media over the decades to hide their true objectives and to continue to prosper. Politicians take the money, and BUY us things with it. And we keep electing these crooks. Most of the Democrats, and more than half of the Republicans are now in on this ponzi scheme.
    The Fed has enslaved us.
    If the OWS crowd and the TeaParty both understood this, we’d be able to take it all back.

    1. Gerri says:

      I’m glad somebody finally came to the heart of the matter. This ridiculous mud-slinging and name-calling I’ve been reading is what you might call counter-productive. Just as Socialism/Communism has never and will never work, just as East is East and West is West, people on opposite sides of an issue cannot and will not open their minds to the possibility of ANY right in their opponent. In other words, you’re wasting your time. Maybe I am, too. But if only one person investigate to learn the truth of saz’s statement, it’s worth my time.
      You’d all better turn your eyes to Greece, Italy and the rest of the European Union. Governments are being overturned by ‘persons unknown’, One reporter actually remarked that ‘the market’ had insisted on the resignation of the head of a country! What ‘market’??? We can’t seem to get up the gumption to impeach a president who’s entire term has been not just a farce and a failure, but a huge step toward the downfall of our country, yet ‘the market (?) ‘ can bring down two governments in a day. Who was APPOINTED to replace these elected leaders?

    2. Kevin Pearson says:

      ALL money is made out of thin air. Money only exists because some government somewhere mints it or pints. Money is a fiction. It ALWAYS has been, The Federal Reserve is no different than any other Treasury. You can say “gold standard” but even a gold standard rather than just a hunk of metal, has to have a government to actually adopt gold as its standard. It’s still just being created by the government.

    I’m a licensed medical professional. *Tb is common among certain communities of people. What questions need asked: why is the media so decrepit in their smear campaign? How did they get such confidential information? Perhaps, the Government sent a bunch of infected drug-addicts into the group? I would call this possibility SUSPECT. In view of the Abuse of Protestors Rights, Cynical and Childish Media Rantings, and Ghastly Abuse of First Amendment rights by law enforcement. There is meat to this possibility.

    I heard Bloomberg was sending homeless people to infiltrate OWS.


    Oh, and to you Geriatric Republican Clowns … Just Shut Up, “Mind your own Business” Get a Second or Third Job, and Get Ready for BIG Government TAX INCREASES You INSOLENT SWINE!

    * Tuberculin skin testing is required in most states for every healthcare professional. It is still common in some parts of society.

    1. Phil says:

      Since when is a contagious disease “such confidential” information? A public place with people contracting airborne communicable diseases shouldn’t be made known? At what Caribbean internet diploma mill did you get your “license”?

    2. Calypso says:

      “Oh, and to you Geriatric Republican Clowns … Just Shut Up, “Mind your own Business” Get a Second or Third Job, and Get Ready for BIG Government TAX INCREASES You INSOLENT SWINE! ”

      That sounds like a threat.

      And who are the insolent swine who need to get jobs? These sicko squatters, that’s who.

      Are you among them?

      1. ivanthedestroyer77 says:

        I’m of a far Greater Culture … and I’m watching all of you. I see that Americans won’t “fight or unite,” and therefore, I will take sides with your CIA and government-ops, to ensure proper reports are prepared to label the people as “neutered” and to tax them without mercy. You people are all so disgusting it is an Abomination.

      2. Al says:

        I read a report that stated that over 50% of the OWS protesters actually already do have jobs. I’m trying to find out where they got these jobs that don’t require that they every show up for work! I’ve been looking for one of those for my entire adult life!

    3. JR says:

      It’s actually endemic to some parts of the country. Large numbers of immigrant populations, usually from SE Asian countries have contributed to this. So has the jail population, not just drug addicts..

      I’m also a ‘licensed medical professional’. You get an outbreak in a homeless shelter it’s a public health issue. It’s also not an uncommon thing in some places. Have that, and you have to take steps to avoid exposure,else you’re responsible for your own conversion.

      And if you think that you need an infected person to be paid to infiltrate such a group that is living in the streets, you’re incredibly naive. Are you really saying that homeless people haven’t been a part of any of these protests? And you don’t need to be an addict to get TB, you just need to be exposed over a period of time. Family members are common to infect because of their close proximetry. So you have a bunch of people, living in the same space for weeks, many of whom don’t know eah other’s medical history, nor even perhaps each other’s name and you think that it’s a conspiracy? Ridiculous.

      To Occupy Atlanta, go to a clinic and get your PPDs done. If you convert, you’re going to be on meds for at least a year. No short cuts with TB. I say this, no matter what your political persuasion. Some things transend politics.

      Yourf full of ceap. Comunicable diseases require disclosure to prevent a repeat of the plague. Health professional? You obviously aren’t a doctor. Everyone knows that Ocare will limit Dr’s pay. Then how will you payoff your $300,000 student loan? I guess you want us to pay for that too?
      Give us your name and location so we can make sure we don’t solicit your half-baked advice.

      It’s the OWS way, Ivan. If you don’t like something, attack it. Or take a dump or a leak on it. Whatever.

    Another thing: The internet now allows people to exercise freedom of speech anytime they wish. Why are these people allowed to threaten violence and mayhem by their constant presence and social interruptions? That’s not speech! That’s harassment and obstructionism. Not to mention the huge amounts of money they cost the cities! Use the internet for your “speech”, the 60s are long over. There is technology now!

    Send these spoiled kids and “rent-a-mobs” home.

    Next time, before you believe some college (who wants your money), do your own research… It not rocket science to see that 90% of these college degrees aren’t really worth squat in the $marketplace$! It’s not OUR fault you were stupid enough to believe a liberal arts degree was worth more than the paper printed upon. And let’s not forget ethnic and gender studies, the “value” those subjects must hold in society is priceless!

    I guess science is too hard and thus any degree will do?? lol

  65. J says:

    Nothing is “free.” Protesting with signs that seek “free” college degrees and “free” health care make you look like idiots, because colleges and hospitals don’t operate on rainbows and sunshine. There is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational careers and “slow paths” to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical.
    While I’m pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things that are not free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers, trash hauling, repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids and the food that inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift protest kitchens. Real people with real dollars are underwriting your civic temper tantrum.

    Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate student loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity you decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose educational pursuits that don’t require loans, or to seek technical or vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your ongoing educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college student is not a state of victimization. It’s a privilege that billions of young people around the globe would die for — literally.

    A protest is not a party. Most of you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in a sober pursuit of social and political change don’t dance jigs down Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look foolish, you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don’t seem to realize that all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.

    There are reasons you haven’t found jobs. The truth? Your tattooed necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn’t a virtue. Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. If you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the problem. It’s not them. It’s you.

      Obviously you have not seen the move for free diapers. Logic; babies need diapers so I should be given free diapers for my baby. I kid you not. Sen. Blumenthal of CT. introduced a bill for federal funding of diapers. We are no more than five years from becoming a full blown Communist country. I guarantee it!

  66. KenInIL says:

    Quarantine them all for 6 months and send the bill to SEIU !!

  67. DEE says:

    I said this over 2 weeks ago…when I heard they had a head lice problem in Portland, i do believe it was…I said.>What’s next? T.B. what epidemic will be next… and BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!! Serves em all right… cant live in those tight quarters without someone coming down with something…Hope they are signed up for obammy care. They will probably get treatment in a couple years………..

  68. Abel Garcia says:

    I would not be surprised if the OWS sues to be left alone and some federal judges agrees.

  69. Denny says:

    How can we get that spread to all the other Occupy camps?

  70. David says:

    I suppose as a result the irresponsible behavior of these squatters they’ll all expect to be treated for free.

    The upshot is now there’s a perfectly valid reason to quarantine all of these idiots.

  71. sunnyd55 says:

    You play with pigs. You get dirty or raped or mugged or arrested or die,

  72. Paul says:

    Can we start a tourism business and send a few of these infected slobs to the OWS camps in Oakland, NY, Boston, Houston, San Fran, Berkeley, etc, etc.

  73. Will Granger says:

    Every single bad thing that happens to the Occupy losers is 100% Obama’s fault. He encouraged them from day one and still supports them.

  74. John Freiheit says:

    The Constitution Of The United States Of America protects your right to LAWFULLY ASSEMBLE. It does NOT protect your right to OCCUPY. You have perverted the right to LAWFULLY ASSEMBLE into a socialist / anarchist revolution. You are the lowest 1% of society run by the top 1% of society and you don’t even know it. We the remaining 98% are SICK OF YOU. YOU ARE NOT PROTESTING, THAT TAKES A DAY OR TWO AT MOST…. YOU ARE OCCUPYING!!! END THE OCCUPATION NOW, ARREST THE OCCUPIERS AND GIVE THE LAND BACK TO THE 98% !

  75. ontie1 says:

    The reasons for running these people out of the town squares is growing and the businesses should be mounting legal charges for the cities for not doing their job and allowing the insurection to continue and the damages to mount. Time to send this group of thuggs packing and make sure they cannot return unless they have permitts and facilities to police themselves and pay for damages.

  76. Henry Thoreau says:

    Everyday the news from the occupy Communists gets better and better. Rape, murder, molestation, thievery, sodomy, drugs, and now plague. It couldn’t happen to dumber people.

  77. Bill says:

    OMG. Quarantine them all right where they are, for the winter, until real Americans can get a handle on this.

  78. Nik says:

    This does not surprise me at all, most communist countries are riddled with TB and when you have a huge gathering of Communists why be surprised when they all start getting infected with it.

  80. IlikeRush says:

    Please Stay. Continue to Occupy. Continue to play around with those women. Just think you will be making the world a better place. Just don’t come to us to pay your medical bills or supply you with medicine.

  81. Phil Mckracken says:

    Let’s hope that it’s a robust, extremely virulent form of TB.

  82. Elmer says:

    Rest assured those shots they need to take for their TB will be paid for by the working class, while these bums enjoy sex, drugs and play their drums!

  83. ILikeRush says:

    A friend works for the union and said that the union is supplying these people with camping equipment and supplies using union money. This is money that the members have paid to the unions to help the unions and members not buns too lazy to work.

  84. Doug says:

    The 1% strikes back with biological warfare. AWESOME!

  85. ILikeRush says:

    Occupy Tuberculosis, Occupy STD’s. Occupy Rape, Occupy Lice, Occupy drugs. Y’all have fun now.

    These people think they are the future leaders of our country. God help us if they are.

    Although it’s been a lot of fun mocking these fools, I don’t wish harm onto them.

  88. Lee says:

    Don’t let them out of the shelter until they are no longer a danger to the rest of us. By the way they take over the homeless shelter and then complain about the homeless. Aren’t they throwing the homeless out of the place they call home?

  89. BigBoa says:

    The mighty Boa has made clear why O’Bozo must be removed. The mighty Boa also made clear why these thug bums need to be removed and why the people of the nation should do it.

    In response, far more people found that to be “shameful” to even be suggested. To them the mighty Boa now says “Told ya so” and hopes YOUR family members are the happy recipients of these diseases as they spread. See if you find THAT to be “shameful”…

    Oh, and enjoy your dictatorship.

    The mighty Boa warned you that he would not always share his wisdom and insight and the time for it to be removed from you has arrived.

  93. Teri Newman says:

    Tuberculosis, Pertussis, Polio, Scarlet Fever, et al. are making a big comeback in America thanks the all the disease-ridden illegal aliens that are running across our Southern border as fast as they can. The third-world toilet they came from never heard of vaccines, so they are spreading ancient diseases that had been eradicated in the USA because of kiddie vaccination laws. Just one more reason to kick them all out.

    1. colton case says:

      This is exactly just what I’ve been saying all along. Skip the racist profiling card they keep trying to buy a ride to stay here on. You got it right on the money

  94. Magneto says:

    This is what I said would happen and it will spread Bird and all other flu types and several other major diseases. This is what happens a concentration camps all over the world. These hippies of Obamas are a perfect target for someone who wants to spread a biologic weapon to the rest of us.


    The Mayor of Atlanta should shut this caldron down for health reasons. These idiots will willingly or unwillingly spread TB far and wide if they continue.

    This is truly idiotic, and guess it is as a result of our growing SOCIAL WELFARE STATE! It does not work folks — it does not work.

    Not sure if our Country can stand another year of Obama’s change. He seems to be driving us into a third world country in LESS THAN FOUR YEARS!

  96. jtorgerson says:

    You want to see Dems and the media really turn on these OWS idiots with a vengeance? Start calling them “Obamavilles”. That’s exactly what they are.

    “Obamaville Atlanta”
    “Obamaville Wall Street”

    That’ll get them removed in a matter of hours.

    I love how they are sticking it to the evil rich 1%-ers by taking over space saved for the homeless.

    Sorry ’bout the TB. Karma can be a real b**ch eh?

    1. Kettering1 says:

      If the homeless were smart, they’d get the addresses of the OWS and go occupy THEIR homes and apartments. That will change the minds of the OWS really fast.

  98. tomSERVO says:

    Dope and mange.

  99. Walter says:

    We should have kept the “canal” and given them California!

    1. colton case says:

      Fawk giving them California. Attitudes like this and people not standing their ground is how so many got here in the first place. People moving away to the higher class landscapes and opened the door for these illegals to swoop in. I aint giving up my California and I aint budging not one inch either. Congress get a grip and get busy working for the people that put you where you are , arrogant jerks

  114. fecal_heroes says:

    Liberal, Neo-conservative useful idiots and critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, exist by feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s prayers are with the millions being victimized by selfsame Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank. And with the Anonymous brigade.
    For they know, the bad children and parasites who are proletariat will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding their addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh!t and p!ss on, noble flea-baggers!

  116. James E. Miller says:

      Because liberals only get the good kind of drug-resistant TB. Didn’t you get the memo?

    I think the Atlanta group should go ‘Occupy’ the White House.

  118. Howard Simpson says:

  119. Dave says:

    Like the OWS folks, George Orwell rejected his middle-class upbringing and spent much of the late 1920s living in flophouses and homeless shelters (see “Down and Out in Paris and London”). Smart move — by the time he got rich from his writing, he was dying of TB. He finally expired in 1950 at age 46 after a desperate rush to finish his famous novel “1984”.

  120. The Bruce says:

    Disease now occupies the “Occupy” crowd. How ironic. The little Darwin inside of me thinks this is Mother Nature’s way of ridding the planet of the unfit.

    HIV/AIDS Linked To Extensively Drug Resistant TB
    ScienceDaily (Nov. 13, 2006) — A highly drug-resistant form of tuberculosis (TB) has been linked to HIV/AIDS in a study conducted in rural South Africa by researchers at Yale School of Medicine.

    OWS meet Darwin. Darwin, meet OWS.

    (With apologies to Shakespeare:) TB or not TB… That is congestion.

  124. Justan American says:

    You just do not become positive for TB over night. It is not like catching the clap.

    It takes a period of time before you test positive so it is most likely these people have had it for a long period of time.

    1. Brownsfan32 says:

      Doesn’t there have to be am initial contact with the disease ?

    2. JR says:

      In theory but there have been cases where someone spent only about 8 hours in close contact with another person and they converted. Most cases take a longer exposure, but this is a respiratory borne disease, do the math.

  125. Kanga Roo says:

    Wow, this site is shill central. Let’s pretend OWS is just a bunch of partying kids with no agenda. Don’t mention the Wall Street Overlords, Don’t mention trillions of dollars to global banksters. Don’t mention the ever expanding debt load Americans are facing propping up the American Imperialist Empire.
    Just whine about democrabs and republidorks. Or tea party vs liberals.

    Or you could begin to awaken….

    1. william says:

      Or, see it for the Union, Communist, Socialist shill that it is………………..In some ways I hope they succeed in turning us into a Socialist country. I can only hope they are part of the first round of purges. Read some history……………. I hope you can swim better than some of the Argentinians.

  128. emily says:

    Hey now, think about what is happenin now… an airborn infection of T.B. has been set loose on the protestors… an incurable strain of a deadly virus that hasn’t been too common in all too long…

    The Constitution limits the government from stopping protests and gatherings… but WE WILL NEVER HAVE PROOF that it WASN’T the government, or some big money people, who decided to release this viral killer onto the unsuspecting public. Let’s just hope they quarentine Georgia before it spreads further.

    How many protesters would gather if they thought they might contract T.B.?

    This could be the end of the movement based on health factors… I can hear Bloomburger…

    “Due to the incurable nature, and rapidly spreading T.B. Outbreak in Atlanta Georgia, the city of N.Y. has decided, for the health and safety of the city and its residents, that the Ocupy Wall Street movement shall disperse immediately. We are also investigating a possible terrorist attack, as since 9/11 the NYPD have had insight that Al Quaida might be behind the T.B. outbreak. Chemical warfare is a dangerous game that the U.S. cannot afford to lose, and mass gatherings of people [out in the open] are ripe targets for biological and chemical attacks…”

    1. emily says:

      The Constitution can’t protect you from T.B.

      (Way to go America! You almost demonstrated that we are a free and unoppressed society with actual rights and hope for a brighter future!)

    2. Kevin Pearson says:

      The First amendment right of free speech DOES NOT give you the right to yell “FIRE!” in a crowded theatre/ There are reasonable limits to “human rights”. The right to vote is limited to those over 18, which violates the rights to 10 year olds by your logic, and the dead are not allowed to vote, although they often do in Chicago and any place run by Democrats.

  129. American says:

    Sounds like a good way to clear the waste off the streets, the lazy loud mouth basters go from occuping the streets to occuping the hospitals, to occuping the grave, sad way to go, they can’t find work so they blame wall street and to stupid to understand Obama and the democrat party is their enemy and now they can’t find a cure. Poor white trash all dressed up and no where to go.
    Take them to the FEMA Camps, give them a good wash and send them to the rice fields.
    PS: Spared the rod now look whats turned up, the kids of no-where.

  130. mike says:

    …..yet another answer to John Stewart’s question, “How are the Occupy protests different than the Tea Party protests?”

  131. ClearyJ says:

    Anyone with more than two neurons firing saw this coming. You look at the Occupy crowd and what do you see: no hygiene worth speaking of; no need to be clean; scruffy, scraggly, rejects that wouldn’t be qualified to work in a sewer. The amazing thing is that it’s not ebola. But I’m sure this crowd really represents more of America than the Tea Party that was full of people who not only kept themselves clean and shaved and looked like they had self-respect, but treated their environment with respect – which tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about environmentalists and environmentalism.

  132. JohnRalph says:

    Obama’s brand of socialism, which is an amalgamation of the Nationalist and Communist varieties despises America.

    Except Islamic America, which is an excellent example of both types since it is a religion that through Sharia Law controls every aspects of one’s life. Virtually enslaving the believer.

    National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party, referred to in English as the NAZI Party (socialism for the German ‘Teutonic’ Race), In reality though no different than the left’s socialism.

    Like Stalin, for the white Russians, or Pol Pot, for the Khmer Rouge, or Ho Chi Minh, for the Viet Minh, or Mao, for the Han Chinese.

    Socialist Gods that brought death and misery to tens if not hundreds of millions of humans.

    Let us not forget our SOCIALIST God, Mein Lord God High Führer Obama, for America’s liberal elite, Muslims and welfare voters on the dole.

  133. Sparky222 says:

  137. Occupy-this says:

    The 1 time the Govt. actually SHOULD DO SOMETHING- and they stand by and watch these Law breakers, and now we find out that these disease ridden vile filthy smelly sorry excuses are nothing more than a disgusting pile of human debris??? These anti-everything types are all for Govt. healthcare, and Govt. A-Z, the govt. for them is nothing more than a tool to exact their jealousy and resentment on those that have achieved and worked hard for their successes!! These punks and piles of human waste are the DIRECT RESULT of the Government’s impact on society- they are Godless, empty souls in search of something to Fill the deep dark abyss where their Soul should be filled with Love and pride and faith and joy NO MATTER their financial position!! People in this country have Lived poor over several generations, and ALWAYS pulled thru on their own for the most part, This is the 1st generation in USA history that wants “bang on the drum all day” and produce NOTHING on their own!!! They will go donw in history as the Generation of Soulless Godless Lazy vermin that only wanted to take from their fellow man – Instead of helping their neighbor, they would rather he be dragged down to their level- this is a sad chapter in USA History!

    1. Kevin Pearson says:

      Instead of trying to break up the protests we should do the opposite, we should BARRICADE them in the protest areas and let whatever disease they have spread all among them. Then let Darwin do his thing

  138. Wellington says:

    A Divine judgement if I ever saw one happening. Let this be a lesson to all of you liberal leftist nanny-statists. It’s bad enough wanting taxpayers to foot the bills for your irresponsible STD contraction from having sex with every person you see, now you’ll probably want a ‘free’ cure for this too.

  139. John T, says:

    How do people who supposedly have their own homes to sleep in get to “occupy” a public homeless shelter?
    And how do local authorities not only permit but also encourage these people to camp for weeks on end in parks and other public places, where they breed violence and disease, and in every conceivable way disrupt the peace and daily life of the people who actually live and work in these “occupied” cities?
    This pseudo-homelessness, practiced by anarchists with the blessing of the politicians, is now the latest tool in eroding and bringing down our country.

  140. smithcreek says:

    OWS in Atlanta took over a homeless shelter? I hope they have the courtesy to let the homeless use their parents basement until they return.

  141. John T. says:

    These “occupations” are just another form of the illegal immigration from Latin America to which Americans have become helplessly accustomed.
    Just a quicker and more effective way to “build” third-world cities in America.

  142. ROBBOB says:

    The reality is, the Occupy XXXXX punks are for the most part children in households that are in teh top 1 to .5 (half percent) of income earners. They are not really mad at not being able to get jobs. In every city there are tons of jobs at teh entry level for new college grads except maybe for lawyers. They don’t want to start in an entry level job, they want that corner office suite that they have absolutely no qualifications for. They are finally enterying the real world where you don’t always get what you want. Found my self quoting the Rolling Stones. Well now to paraphrase, ‘if they try real hard, they may get what they need.”

  143. Satch says:

    About the only thing these OWS idiots will accomplish is to over load Obamacare with all kinds ills.

  144. Bill says:

    So to protest poor conditions for housing, jobs etc., they all go and hang out in a homeless shelter and contract TB. What exactly is being accomplished again? Besides living in the fashion you are protesting against, right?

  145. Heat Seeker says:

  147. I am Love, not hate says:

    A bunch of disgrundled Bush haters that have nothing to be disgrundled about since Bush left office, so they protest whatever Obama tells them to be disgrundled about, as the “Banks”. Their spirits within them are all stirred up with hatred, these people just need an outlet for that hatred. Their spirits have been fed well with hatred while Bush was President. Where do they go now with all that hatred? Where ever Obama tells them to……. They are hateful people.

    You know reading hatred filled comments like these are part of the reason the country is in the stateit’s in today. Because of generations of hatred and the uniformed making decisions for the rest of us. Stop the dam bickering and find solutions…Go down to Occupy Atlanta and see how you can have your plight heard…Obviously you have one…It’s not just a bunch of Obama supporters down there it’s people that are fed up with the state of the country/economy and they’re speaking out against it. What’s so wrong with that? If the govt tried to take guns away from people, a huge part of the population who come out in droves to stop it. Now here you have people fighting for rights for everyone of you that are complaining and yet you condemn them….. Our society needs a wake up call like Hurrican Katrina or the tsunami in Japan…and then you’ll see that politics has nothing to do with our success but the character of the people when we’re all dependent on each other.
    Good character=Good politics.

    Are the traveling “occupiers” mooching on people who have no homes and picking up TB? Or are they – just as likely- spreading it by paying the infected homeless as day-protesters??

  153. No Labels Please! says:

    Wow, the comments here are a huge statement on the polarization of our populace and a graphic demonstration of how uninformed so many Americans are!

    I am amazed at how so many Americans suck up propaganda and then form passionate convictions based on that propaganda, no matter how riddled with misinformation, exaggeration and logical fallacies the propaganda may be.

    Two cases now represent an “outbreak”??!! Well, all the stuff vilifying the Occupy movement as hippies, rich kids, unemployed bums, lazy slobs wanting to live entirely on government entitlements has already been shot down, if some of you would care to seek out the facts. All those attacks and accusations, along with police action, has failed at killing the movement, so what better than to try instilling panic with the fear of an “outbreak”?

    Some of the people commenting here are obviously unaware of how many Independents, Libertarians, and fiscal conservative Republicans are active in this movement. Yes, even some Tea Party members that aren’t happy with the extremist social conservative element that took over the Tea Party and divided the Republican party.

    Uninformed and biased opinions run rampant in folks that are too lazy to become informed and learn the facts. No wonder this country is in trouble.

    1. Kevin Pearson says:

      Sorry dude, but conservative requires being informed, The TEA party was about the abuse of the taxpayer by the government. How can anything that the Occupods’ message be considered anything short of a demand of MORE bureaucracy? Sorry that is the POLAR OPPOSITE of conservatism, libertarianism, o or TEA party, any way you slice it.

      You would be amazed what CDC knows…….. and you will never know.
      TB is least of your problems.
      WHY don’t you start researching what CDC is investigating these days — it frightens them more than you will ever know.

      Sue/ threaten to sue…… the Mayor??? What someone – group’s goal is is to END Occupy. It’s your choice to stay/go.

      I dare say many will leave b/c of article, But I don’t think you will be suing the Mayor – you made “an informed decision” to attend while knowing that article written stating people at “occupy” had 2 cases found to have TB.

      Enjoy your stay, Raule.

    The LSM had the nerve to denegrate the Tea Pary while they praised this mess. Nothing like this happend with them.

      Ellie I am a tea party person and have been to a number of their events!

    The occupiers are dirty and smelly, disease ridden hacks that are doing nothing but helping the conservative standing in America. Thank you

    re: “Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB),”

    This is nothing new – what is new is that a news media is reporting it.
    Most TB comes from across Mexican border.
    Also I experienced Hospital talk [nurses] of Leprosy case in a South New Jersey hospital in the late 1980s.

    Evan after WWII at Ellis Island immigrants were checked for communicable diseases – even poor eye site could keep them out.

    It’s been going on for yearssss – sensationalizing “occupy” when those very TB and other diseases brought in from other countries are in Malls/ Busses/ Public Pools/ Parks-Playgrounds/ Public Schools/ ALL AROUND US.
    It’s NOT just at Occupy.

  160. Todd says:

    Plenty of illegal aliens crossing the heavily polluted river in Mexico contract all sorts of disease. They bring it up here to Mass. and our hospital bills pay for their free medical care. One had TB last year and spent 3 wks in hospital on the tax payer.

  161. Kevin Pearson says:

    As put so eloquently in the immortal words of Nelson Muntz : “Ha ha!!”

  162. Btruth says:

    So the bankers finally got annoyed enough to just hire their own personal elite thugs, from one of the many alphabet intelligence agencies and simply spread a virus to get rid of the annoyance. Similar to giving blankets out with small pox. From what I see, it’s 99.9% of willfully ignorant serfs living in the ussa.

    1. Pauli Gela says:

      Viven Lee died from TB.

      1. Vince says:

        You mean Vivien Leigh? Geesh, what a dope.

    2. Pauli Gela says:

      Injuns caught diseases from Conquerors, and vice versa.

  163. TheChairman says:

    Take note: “base” and “encampment” are MILITARY terms…

    The liberal media sees and presents this ‘movement’ as warfare.

    Their ‘occupy’ comrades are useful idiot foot-soldiers of liberal elites.

    Wake up America, the liberals/media are declaring WAR against YOU!

  164. CommonCents says:

    One word: QUARANTINE

    1. Pauli Gela says:

      No. Citizen militias exercing their unalienable rights, especially, as it is an obligation and a duty, as much as a rght. Especially the second amendment, a self evident right needed to return America to sanity.

      1. Vince says:

        Huh????? You call this a citizen militia???? How long have you been on hard drugs?

  165. Dennis says:

    These are the people that Obama supported. these people are running around and may be infecting the rest of the Atlanta area. Peach Tree and Pine should have been shut down years ago. Now look what we have to worry about concerning that rat hole.

  166. Rita Ippolito says:

    Its time for these nit-wits to….go home!.

  167. Pf Wag says:

    “a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition.” could be Multiple Drug Resistant TB, MDR TB.

    It costs about $100,000 to treat MDR TB. Guess who will end up paying for it.

  168. Vince says:

    Oh yeah, this is just like the Tea Party…NOT!!! Hey Nancy, why aren’t you crying about this like you were about the IMAGINARY violence of the Tea Party?

  169. Lightray9a says:

    Okay, I changed my mind. Let these idiots stay in the park as long as they want. That’s one way to rid ourselves of these societal leeches.

  170. Jack Bauer says:

    How long before the tin hat crowd of OWS starts blaming all the disease and deaths on Wall Street operatives.

  171. rickg says:

    Except for the rioting, disease, senseless message,and murders this is a lot like The Tea Party.

  172. Sukmi Gud says:

    The occupidiots deserve to die. The fewer leeches in the world the better. Hope the rest die of leprosy.

  173. WilliamPenn says:

    On orders from Obama not to disturb his base, big-city Democrat mayors are sacrificing tourism, business, and their residents to communists and anarchists who want nothing better than to destroy those cities.

  174. JeannaDaniels says:

    I am 29 and by no fault of my own I am stuck living with my parents. I had a great job until a few months ago but it wasn’t with million dollar bonses! If you people think we want to liveoff of our parents think again! Hopefully when Obama wins re-election we’ll finally get our just rewards. The GOP has it’s people like Perry so we have no worries.

    1. Buck Ofama says:

      >Hopefully when Obama wins re-election we’ll finally get our just rewards.

      More “you owe me” nonsense. “WARE MY GUMINT CHEK?”

      Your disgusting and misguided notion that Ovomit is going to take from others to give you “just rewards” depicts you as a sniveling, whining, despicable lazy clown. Summarized: a whining Ovomit voter.

      Here’s a just reward for you: Wal Mart.

    2. Bunny says:

      Jeanna,President Obama has been in office for 3 years,he owns the current problems.I hope you get a job that you like soon.I loved my parents but didn’t want to live there once I turned 18 I left and supported myself ever since.Everyone should get the chance to do the same.God bless America.

    3. GSNP says:

      Jeanna Daniels – So you got STUCK living with your parents. If you had a great job WHY don’t you have money to live on while laid off?
      Don’t you know – your parents got STUCK WITH YOU……… AGAIN!
      Do you do for them every day AND THANK THEM.
      I pity your parents for having such a thankless/ ungrateful/ spendthrift for a daughter who w/i 90 days is STUCK LIVING WITH THEM.
      WHY they took you in I do NOT know.

    4. Robert g says:

      looks like you already have your reward from Obama being elected.

  175. Kimberly says:

    It was a disgusting site on TV where different areas of the OCCUPIED were protesting. Litter everywhere, the stench of urine and feces, filthy unbathed people think by being pigs shows a true protest? How? Lowering your standards to meet zero means you’re less than! Get a job and take a bath, We owe you nothing! It’s every man for themselves. If you’re lazy and a sloth why should I support you?

    1. Buck Ofama says:

      >Lowering your standards to meet zero

      Most of the flea bag whiners voted for “president” ZERO.

  176. Peted says:

    This OWS movement is remiinescent of the “Childrens Crusades of the Middle Ages” in its initial zeal and intensity and completely unfocused and diverse reasons for being! These misled people will not be sold into slavery in the Muslim markets but eventually will have to return home and wonder what they were thinking! It seemed like a good idea at the time, but we will need to get a real job!

  177. Bunny says:

    So the OWS Atlanta end up using the homeless shelter,where were those unfortunate true homeless supposed to go with protesters in their beds?.Talk about a bunch of inconsiderate ,selfish people.If they contract TB they will probably sue the city for their own stupidity.

  178. Buck Ofama says:

    Tube suckers getting tubers! LOL.

  179. I’ve been using gas pump activism to beat Obama and these ows idiots. Putting decals on gas pumps, on store coolers, drive thru screens, inside menus, etc. They say “These high prices brought to you by Barack Obama” with his picture next to it. They’re reusable and leave no residue (no worries about vandalism) I get them at feels great everytime I put one up somewhere.

  180. Sal Ball says:

    Free trade agreements are a plot by the wealthy to replace local workforce with cheaper labor by moving the jobs to cheaper workers, rather than allowing immigration. It is simply a way to undermine the vast middle class of america. Congratulations wall st. You have crushed the once upwardly mobile middle class. We are done. The jobs are gone. What we are left with is 8 dollar an hour jobs that you couldnt afford to feed yourself with, let alone support a family. THATS WHAT OWS IS! You cant sweep them around, it will only get worse. There numbers are increasing everyday. Simply because we have no jobs. Your greed has caused this imbalance in our country, and others. Welcome to the future of the world. Social unrest. I predict death and destruction if this free trade which caused the wholesale elimination of middle class jobs, isnt reversed.

  181. Mohoc says:

    It would help if FOX and CBS would report the whole story, instead of making fake connections between the FACTS.

    The TB infections happened in Fulton County Jail. When two homeless folks came from the jail to the shelter in September, they were tested and found positive. The shelter contacted the Fulton County Department of Health and Human Services. The two men were isolated and given treatment. Occupy Atlanta did not move into part of the building until November. It is completely separate from the homeless shelter, on a different floor, with a separate entrance and no direct access between the two facilities.

    Despite all these facts Occupy Atlanta was responsible enough to have everybody tested for TB, along with everybody else in the building. There were no positive cases of TB found in the shelter except for the two individuals in September.

  182. Jim Gallagher says:

    Meanwhile, Harvard has its own OWS protest. Profiling the 99% and keeping them out, of course….

  183. lookin at the big picture says:

    Lets focus on something else like the fact that people that WON’T go home are taking up the space where people that DON’T HAVE HOMES are supposed to be able to have a bed for the night. There are actual homeless people out there in Atlanta that aren’t getting the basics they need because these idiots won’t go home. How is that fair? How is that going to help the bottom 1%?

    1. nadia says:

      The shelter occupied Atlanta space in a section of the building that has not been used in many years. They are NOT taking up beds for the homeless. And if you follow the news, they are making a great effort to call attention to the crisis of homelessness in Atlanta.

  184. BigBoa says:

    The mighty Boa WARNED you that O’Bozo needs to be removed immediately. The mighty Boa also warned you that only God knows what else he will pull between now and next year.

    Then he also warned you why the occupiers need to be confronted by the people and disbanded. Many claiming to be “conservative” called such testimony “shameful”……

    Well here’s to hoping those same pu$$ie$ now enjoy rampant disease coming to a neighborhood near them and here’s to hoping their relatives contract it.

    And by the way, enjoy the dictatorship.

    You were told that this imparting of wisdom would come to and end and the time has come. Reap what you have sown. So it is said, so it is written.

  185. BigBoa says:

    AH HaHaHaa!!

    You said BASE…..

  186. Jim Gallagher says:

    OWS would serve themselves well to learn some history Listen to the Former Soviet Citizen at the House of Terror in Hungary…

  187. Eddie Haskell says:

    Not to worry – the FEMA camps are ready for when things really get out of control. Just play along like you’ve been taught / conditioned. lol

  188. Robert g says:

    Tuberculosis doesn’t work fast enough. An Ebola outbreak would be much better.

  189. Mia says:

    These Flea Partiers are occupying HOMELESS SHELTERS?

    Throw these people out – immediately! What is going on in Atlanta?

    These are the worst protestors ever.

  190. nadia says:

    This is a violent comment and I cannot believe it was not moderated.
    “Patriotism” that cheers the hypothetical death of other Americans who are engaged in peaceful protest – actually “patriotism” that cheers the deaths of other Americans PERIOD!! – is not patriotism at all. This entire thread is full of violent and inappropriate remarks.

  191. rianne van hoten says:

    hopely all activist are infected with tubercelose now!

  192. mariposa says:

    thats a lie. Dont believe what ever lie you read.

  193. mar says:

    If there was a tuberculosis breakout in Atlanta i would know. Dont believe the lies that you read.

  194. Carmen says:

    now people are using this article to say TB was brought to Atlanta by the OWS movement. Get for real people. I agree with Nadia🙂
