Occupiers Living Like Animals

I've witnessed this "Occupy Wall Street" phenomenon for weeks now - like everyone else has - and I've been struck by the fact that these malcontents, loons, and simpletons who make up the OWS brigades - if they have a common goal - seem to all want to take this country back 200 years to a time that was - in their twisted minds - more egalitarian, less harsh, simpler.

In one respect they have succeeded. They have succeeded in bringing upon themselves a scourge so prevalent 200 years ago. This is not funny:
Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlanta’s Base
CBS Atlanta

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.

For the love of God. Shouldn't these morons be incarcerated in order to protect themselves from themselves?
