Dark Ages disease the new American plague threat?
Diseases are reemerging in some parts of America, including Los Angeles County, that we haven’t commonly seen since the Middle Ages. One of those is typhus, a disease carried by fleas that feed on rats, which in turn feed on the garbage and sewage that is prominent in people-packed “typhus zones.” Although typhus can be treated with antibiotics, the challenge is to identify and treat the disease in resistant, hard-to-access populations, such as the homeless or the extremely poor in developing countries.

I also believe that homeless areas are at risk for the reemergence of another deadly ancient disease — leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease. Leprosy involves a mycobacteria (tuberculosis is another mycobacteria) that is very difficult to transmit and very easy to treat with a cocktail of three antibiotics.

Yet according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are more ...

Nice try, Really, but shooting invaders is both legal (U. S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 15) and biblical (Romans 13:3-4).
Ecclesiastes 8:11–Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Celebrating vagrancy, drug addiction, homelessness as paragon of virtue has more to do with this than anything else. Liberal values kill. Liberty without morals will be the death of us all.

Irrelevant. Dr. Byrd is a pragmatist - he gets what *he* wants from the system, therefore it must be good. But Biblically, the ethics involved aren't difficult: Anyone who compels strangers to pay their bills, medical or otherwise, is simply a thief, whether a given socialized scheme "works" or not. Socialism is the ideology of thieves, who are their natural allies.

Medical care is the classic "wedge" issue since argumentum ad misericordiam is an easy sell to the unthinking.

2. Rationing. Grudem complains that a government funded health scheme will lead to a rationing of healthcare and government then decides who gets treated and who does not. At a certain level this is true, but it is not called “rationing,” it is called “triage.” Every waiting room in every hospital has to prioritize on who needs the most urgent care based on the severity of the case and the resources available. The problem I have with Grudem’s model is that the delivery of health care is not determined by the person with the most critical need, but by the person who has the most money (or best policy). So Grudem is right at one point, America does have the best healthcare in the world … but only for those who can afford it, that’s the problem. This system encourages doctors to discriminate against persons on Medicare and Medicaid because it is less lucrative for them to treat them. The solution is not the abolishment of medicare and medicaid, but the integration of private and public health so doctors can work in both streams effectively without huge disparities in fees received – again, this happens in Australia quite well....

In the Dark Ages they would describe these plagues as the Wrath of God.

Did they know something we don't?

An equally effective way to get rid of the problem, Jim, would be to round up all of the illegal aliens in this country, kick them out, and shoot the ones who come back.

You will notice notice, Timothy, countries that have universal healthcare like Australia don't have this problem.
You're not "thinking thinking," Jim, on two counts:
1) Cum hoc ergo propter hoc. There could be other reasons Australia lacks this problem. For all we know, it could be a Southern Hemisphere thing. Or maybe it's their beer;
2) These diseases have become more manifest *since* Obamacare. Not that I would necessarily blame it, but by your defective reasoning I could.

If you're posting this stuff merely to bait people, at least put more thought into it.

You will notice notice, Timothy, countries that have universal healthcare like Australia don't have this problem. (Is Trump right about Australian healthcare?)

Let's make America great again by strengthening Obamacare!

The Democratic liberals find the Republican slogan “Make America Great Again” to be offensive. That’s because the liberals hate America and want to turn it into a third-world backwater of a nation. And they’re doing a pretty good job of it. We’ve always had homelessness, but these diseases didn’t start creeping in until our cities were swamped with illegal immigrants. If you want to destroy America, join hands with Jim and vote Democrat.
