California is suffering a breakdown of public health caused by the failure of government run by liberal Democrats
Los Angeles is a modern American city of 4 million people that's in the midst of a typhus epidemic.Los Angelos is not the only California city with health problems caused by sanitation issues which result from homelessness. It is a state where camping tents have come to be seen as affordable housing as the liberals in charge push more control freak policies which inhibit the building of housing.
It's true. The same disease that afflicts many residents of Caracas, Venezuela is spreading in Los Angeles and city officials - not to mention residents - are frightened.
Typhus is spread by fleas hitching a ride on rats. The rat population in LA is doing fine, thank you, as piles of garbage dot the cityscape, making it Thanksgiving Day every day for the city's fat, happy rodents.
For months, LA County public health officials have said typhus is mainly hitting the homeless population.Characterizing typhus as a "medieval" disease is terribly unfair - to medieval people. It's a disease of the third world where city services have broken down and trash pickup becomes a luxury.
But Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.
"It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck," Greenwood told the I-Team. "Who gets typhus? It's a medieval disease that's caused by trash."
The city attorney who contracted the disease works at city hall - a building apparently infested with rats.
Los Angeles has an out of control homeless problem. But the city's failure to deal with it, as well as its inability to perform the simplest task of picking up the damn garbage is making the "City of Angeles" into a "City of Rats."
