It is difficult for me to acknowledge the loathing or total disregard for the safety of American citizens and for our national sovereignty that I see demonstrated by our administration and its true believers. I won't go into the SPP, NAFTA, CAFTA, the ALCA or the unfettered opening of our highways to Mexican trucker drivers. More on the 29 truck "accident" in California later. Our government, the Bush Administration, and our Congress are putting our lives at risk each and every day, leaving us easy prey for the illegals and their behavior (drunk driving illegal alien vehicular murderers are after all just a "cultural" thing in the great wisdom of Geraldo Rivera). But let's move on to the diseases they are bringing into our nation and inflicting upon us. As one small example - the City of Staunton, Virginia has had to close all of its public schools in order to sterilize the schools. I don't know how many students have become sick. One young student has died. Why? Because of the out-break of a staph infection that is endemic to Mexico and is a particularly strong strain that resists successful treatment. This is a staph infection that is typically found in hospitals, one that destroys bone and skin tissue and one that seems easily spread. From the article, Staph Infections Reported at Schools Across the Country:
The news of staff infections spreading through schools coincides with a report by doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which found that nearly 19,000 people had died in the United States in 2005 after an MRSA infection. The study, which is being published today in The Journal of the American Medical Association, suggests that such infections may be twice as common as previously thought, according to its lead author, Dr. R. Monina Klevens. If the mortality estimates are correct, the number of deaths associated with the MRSA germ would exceed those attributed to HIV-AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, emphysema or homicide each year.That's right, in 2005, 19,000 people died in the United States after an MRSA infection. Add that to the 12,000 Americans killed every year on our highways by drunk driving illegal aliens from Mexico, and I'd say you can call it whatever you like but I call it a war that is being waged against us. But there's more, Experts: U.S. Deaths From Deadly Drug-Resistant Staph May Surpass AIDS Deaths Tuesday, October 16, 2007
CHICAGO — More than 90,000 Americans get potentially deadly infections each year from a drug-resistant staph "superbug," the government reported Tuesday in its first overall estimate of invasive disease caused by the germ. Deaths tied to these infections may exceed those caused by AIDS, said one public health expert commenting on the new study. The report shows just how far one form of the staph germ has spread beyond its traditional hospital setting. The overall incidence rate was about 32 invasive infections per 100,000 people. That's an "astounding" figure, said an editorial in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association, which published the study. Most drug-resistant staph cases are mild skin infections. But this study focused on invasive infections — those that enter the bloodstream or destroy flesh and can turn deadly. Researchers found that only about one-quarter involved hospitalized patients. However, more than half were in the health care system — people who had recently had surgery or were on kidney dialysis, for example. Open wounds and exposure to medical equipment are major ways the bug spreads. In recent years, the resistant germ has become more common in hospitals and it has been spreading through prisons, gyms and locker rooms, and in poor urban neighborhoods. The new study offers the broadest look yet at the pervasiveness of the most severe infections caused by the bug, called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. These bacteria can be carried by healthy people, living on their skin or in their noses. An invasive form of the disease is being blamed for the death Monday of a 17-year-old Virginia high school senior. Doctors said the germ had spread to his kidneys, liver, lungs and muscles around his heart. The researchers' estimates are extrapolated from 2005 surveillance data from nine mostly urban regions considered representative of the country. There were 5,287 invasive infections reported that year in people living in those regions, which would translate to an estimated 94,360 cases nationally, the researchers said. Most cases were life-threatening bloodstream infections. However, about 10 percent involved so-called flesh-eating disease, according to the study led by researchers at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There were 988 reported deaths among infected people in the study, for a rate of 6.3 per 100,000. That would translate to 18,650 deaths annually, although the researchers don't know if MRSA was the cause in all cases. If these deaths all were related to staph infections, the total would exceed other better-known causes of death including AIDS — which killed an estimated 17,011 Americans in 2005 — said Dr. Elizabeth Bancroft of the Los Angeles County Health Department, the editorial author. The results underscore the need for better prevention measures. That includes curbing the overuse of antibiotics and improving hand-washing and other hygiene procedures among hospital workers, said the CDC's Dr. Scott Fridkin, a study co-author. Some hospitals have drastically cut infections by first isolating new patients until they are screened for MRSA. The bacteria don't respond to penicillin-related antibiotics once commonly used to treat them, partly because of overuse. They can be treated with other drugs but health officials worry that their overuse could cause the germ to become resistant to those, too. A survey earlier this year suggested that MRSA infections, including noninvasive mild forms, affect 46 out of every 1,000 U.S. hospital and nursing home patients — or as many as 5 percent. These patients are vulnerable because of open wounds and invasive medical equipment that can help the germ spread. Dr. Buddy Creech, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University, said the JAMA study emphasizes the broad scope of the drug-resistant staph "epidemic," and highlights the need for a vaccine, which he called "the holy grail of staphylococcal research." The regions studied were: the Atlanta metropolitan area; Baltimore, Connecticut; Davidson County, Tenn.; the Denver metropolitan area; Monroe County, NY; the Portland, Ore. metropolitan area; Ramsey County, Minn.; and the San Francisco metropolitan area.Our forefathers had Ellis Island for a reason. Now, our pudding-headed politicians welcome HIV-positive AIDs carriers from around the world for gala gatherings in highly populated cities. These same puddin'-heads would rather have us killed by drunk driving illegals, killed by diseases that the illegals are bringing into the nation - some diseases we have not seen in America for decades - rather than protect us. George Washington admonished us early-on that we should look to trade where it suited us. He did not say we should march with Messianic delusions into any nation's internal conflicts, nor should we give up our national sovereignty. Our nation CANNOT survive one more "one world order/globalist" in the White House. We need our active military on our border with real weapons and amunition protecting us from invasion, not the national guard for show - that insults us and them. We need to stop this insanity that children born to foreign national parents become "anchor babies" to bring the entire family into our nation. You want "family re-unification"? Fine, send the kid with foreign national parents back to their nation that has jurisdiction over them and then let the kid apply for himself and himself ALONE to enter the US when he reaches the age of majority but he can be a citizen of only one nation with no dual citizenship. All illegal aliens should be deported, NOW. How? Cut off services, period. No kids of foreign nationals here illegally in our schools; no in-state tuition. No driver's licenses. Vicente Fox says we need the Mexican workers. I wonder what the 47-50 million Americans that we have murdered since 1973 would say had they been given the opportunity to live. Surely, Hitler could not have devised and implemented a more creative plan of genocide. Deport the illegal foreign nationals burdening our police, our housing, our schools, our hospitals bringing crime and disease upon us and killing us. We have immigration laws that are being honored by thousands of folks striving to come here legally. Let's put our attention on them helping them to become Americans and toss the rest out. Cities like Staunton, Virginia should not be subjected to having even one student killed by infection brought upon us by illegals. The death of that one child equals pain and suffering, and extreme loss to his family and friends and to our community. Cries against illegal aliens is not a racist issue. It is a simple issue of following laws. We have the laws - we don't need more. Just deport the illegals where you find them. Period. "But, Beach Girl, there are 12 to 20 million. We can't deport them all..." Well, why not? Let's give it a try and let's start with no services, no medical services, no jobs, no nothing... Time to play "cowboys and illegals".... or would you rather bury your loved one killed in whatever manner by an illegal alien?
